Soft and warm feeling with excellent arch support but the soft terry material gave no support to keep your foot on the footbed; had to send it back.

No problem with the foot bed, but I have a narrow foot and high arch. There is not much padding on part that goes over the instep and it rubs the boney area there. Back they go.

I was looking for a slipper to wear around the house with more support than my beloved Uggs. Going back to my Uggs. Although these felt good on my feet, my feet sweated in them. The sheepskin in Uggs controls that better. I returned these and ordered my Uggs.

I don't understand why there were so many glowing reviews. These slippers were not comfortable. They are 'clunky' and stiff. When I first put them on they did not feel good but followed the recommendation to wear them for a few hours over a couple of days to get used to them. It didn't help. They were as uncomfortable the second day as they were the first. Beware!

Disappointed by the poor quality of the shoes for the price I paid. Ortha is just a ploy to make consumer think they are orthotically correct, which they are not; they actually hurt as the so called support is rigid. Look of the shoe is also ugly.

These shoes are just not comfortable. They are rigid and hard...not at all what I want when I come home at the end of the day. I love their flip flops which I wear every day all summer long.

After reading all the good reviews I decided to order these slippers. As soon as they arrived I opened the box and put them on. Within 30 seconds I removed them and placed them back in the box to return them. I cannot believe how quickly my toes started to hurt. While they do have good arch support these slippers are much too hard for me to wear.

This is my second pair of Orthaheel slippers and I have to say that I am very disappointed in this pair. They are comfortable but have fallen apart after only 2 weeks! The lining has completely come off at the toes on both slippers and the rest of the slipper is leaving balls of fuzz over my clothes. I only wear them in the house so I was expecting to get a little more wear from them!

They're not exactly pretty, but do help with heel pain. Plenty roomy for my wide feet. They have a hard foot pad but do their job.

I was tired of wearing a ratty old pair of Birks for slippers and wanted something slipperish with the same good arch support. These are it! My tired and sore feet love these at the end of the day, and they help with the early morning plantar fasciitis when I get out of bed. Thinking about getting another pair, but I love the animal print. Kind of kicky for an old lady.

These are comfortable and supportive (what I wanted and what the podiatrist recommended, respectively). The fit a bit roomy around. If I were to ever wear these out and order more, I'd order a size down. These work for now, though.

I have worn a pair of these all winter long, day in and day out, while at home. They are fantastic! The arch support is awesome. I have osteoarthritis and these make my life much better. I also have one pair of sandals and I am looking for more. If you need slippers with rubber bottoms and good support, get these. They also go through the washer very well.

My podiatrist recommended Vionic with Orthaheels after diagnosing me with plantar fasciitis. I love these slippers, they have excellent arch support and my feet feel so much better when I wear them. I am usually a 12, but the 11s fit great.

After years of wearing the open toe version of this slipper, I decided to get the mule slipper for my upcoming trip to cold weather destination. I am wearing these right now to get used to and they feel great. The support is right where I need it. I have washed the open toe ones several times, so I expect to do the same with these. The mule slippers will make my upcoming trip even better.

Slippers are slightly hard at first so would advise that you wear them for a few hours a day at first. Within one week I had no more foot or heel pain! Love these slippers.

Very nice slippers! I've been using them for about a month and am very happy. It gives me the arch support needed since my bunionectomy. I love to cook and enjoy spending an afternoon standing in the kitchen and used to end up with a backache - but no more!! Yay! Normally, I wear a size 8 1/2 but purchased a size 8 and it fits just fine. If I had one wish, it would be for Vionic to make an adorable moccasin type slipper! It's a lot easier to "play" in that type of slipper. Maybe it's because I'm not used to a slip on but I feel cautious when I'm running up the stairs or bopping around the house.

These slippers take some getting used to. They have a high arch support. It reminded me of when I got my orthotics, and the doctor said to wear them only a couple of hours the first few days to get used to them. Same with these. But they are worth it. They help you walk more correctly and have aided in my aching back. I wear an 8½ in shoes that I wear with socks. I wear a 39 in these, and I wear socks (winter)with them. They are expensive, but they are not just slippers, they are corrective shoes, too. Oh, and I have a bunion, and they are wide enough to allow me to wear them in comfort.

I am having plantar/tarsal fasciitis problems, so it was suggested I wear shoes in the house. My mom trained us to take our shoes off at the door, and we recently got new carpet, so I am hesitant to wear shoes in the house but want to improve my discomfort. I tried some of Vionic's flip-flops as well, but they are just too wide (excess amount of strap length). This slipper has Velcro to adjust the width of the slipper, but the slipper is so wide that I have to pull the Velcro as far as possible--there is very little Velcro left to hook onto the other piece and about 3/4" of the tab hangs on the floor. I am hoping that there will be enough Velcro touching to stay closed/attached to make these narrow enough so my feet don't fall out. Of course these are not soft, plush, and fluffy like I'd like a slipper to be since the sole is basically an orthotic. But, the arch support is terrific and these should allow me to wear in the house and not track in dirt, chemicals, and germs from my regular outside shoes. I will keep these. I only wish they were more narrow on their own, and I was not crazy about the color selection. The price is higher than I'd have liked to pay for a slipper, but they are more comfortable than wearing a new pair of shoes.
