Wonderful slippers! I have a very high arch, and my podiatrist recommended this brand. Luckily I found the slippers and now am in foot heaven around the house! I also wear the sandals and cannot tell you how much better my feet and legs feel!

I LOVE these slippers. Wear everyday since I'm retired. Give me the arch support I need, never have aching feet or legs now. Glad I found them.

I got the slippers because I had broke my leg and since they run so wide I thought they would work but now that the swelling is down they are way to wide. And so I now have a pricey pair of slippers I can't wear. I liked the slippers but I would love it if you made some of your sandals in narrow. I used to wear a 10 m in everything and now I can't buy sandals they are too wide and won't stay on my feet.

I ordered half a size down according to the reviews, the 9 fits me exactly as 9½. So they are like half a size bigger not one full size. They are really comfortable and snugly. They are not your normal slippers, they are ortho ones made to support your feet. However I do see them as a bad fit for people suffering of platfus. I hope that they will last as long as possible. I wish that I could wear them to work.

I have perpetually cold toes, hard to fit feet, and always hated the look of slippers. These are warm, zippy looking and very comfy. I'm an 8.5, wide in front and narrow in back; the 9 is perfect, the velcro tab allows me to tighten across the instep, and there's plenty of toe room. They're also great to walk in, stable, comforting for someone with gait issues.

I've been suffering with Plantar Fasciitis for about seven months, every month another notch up in pain. I've tried foot stores and foot doctors, but I received only modest relief. I've had these slippers for 24 hours and my pain has gone from a '10' to a '1'. I have wood floors at home and I'm a hair stylist and salon owner, where the floors are cement under tile. My feet are tired after a couple of haircuts and a few foils. It's really nice to slide into these slippers after a long day. Highly recommend them, but I have to say that I feel too young to be wearing orthopedic shoes - the velcro closure is a nice touch. ;-)

Brands I'd also recommend: Keen, Ahnu, Adidas

After being diagnosed with sesamoiditis, I was told by the podiatrist that I needed shoes with a stiff sole, and preferably arch supports, as well as orthotics, or at least a wrap. I couldn't imagine being comfortable in this type of shoe just lounging around the house, so ordered the Gemma mule slipper, based on other reviews. With a small wrap, I've been wearing it every day since they arrived and the podiatrist says they are fine. Wonderful for wearing at home and have actually worn them outdoors. Not dainty or a fashion statement, but in black, not glaringly goofy-looking. I'm very happy with them.

This is my second pair of this slipper. I love the zebra print and how comfortable they are. I usually wear an 8.5 shoe and found a size 8 in this slipper to fit the best. The support is great for wearing around the house on wood floors.

Purchased these for around the house for arch support and to keep my feet warm in winter. They are definitely warm, but the arch support can be a bit much on some days, causing foot pain. On those days, I switch to ballet slippers to give my arches a rest. They also get very stinky. The cleaning instructions say to just wipe, but I had to throw them in the wash on the gentle cycle. We will see how they hold up after the washing. The Velcro straps are very effective.

These are the most comfortable slippers I've ever owned (with the exception of the open toed version of the these). I have a high arch in my foot, so these feel so good to wear. Sometimes I forget that I'm wearing and I leave the house to run errands in them. I just love them. I normally wear a size 7 shoe, but these run a little big, so I get these in a 6 and they are a perfect fit. Also, my feet are a little skinny, so I tighten the top of the slipper with the velcro flap.

Brands I'd also recommend: None. These are the only ones I wear.

Love! I have several pairs of Orthaheel flip flops and love them for my over pronation and the arch support. I'm a runner and occasionally get Plantar fasciitis pain. Around the house, I wear slippers but they had no support in them. I got these and loved them right away. PERFECT. I wear a 7.5 and ordered 7. They are wide but it's easy to adjust. I normally wear a M shoe. If you've never worn Orthaheel, it may take some getting used to. I'm a believer.

Love these slippers! They are really comfortable especially with the arch support and slight heal. They are my go to indoor shoe. I wear a 7 shoe and I bought a 7 slipper and they fit perfect. I also own an Orthaheel flip flop that I love.

Desperation with foot pain made me spend the money for this expensive slipper. It is worth every cent! I had been struggling with many slippers and inserts for them for months, but nothing helped - not with the heel pain or with the pain on the tops and sides of my feet. It's been a month now and I can actually get up from a sitting position without having to limp for the first 10 or so steps. I am not saying this slipper did it all. I still do my stretches for plantar fasciitis religiously every day, and I switched from Skechers to New Balance for work. But now, when I am home, I also have something really good to wear to benefit my feet - no backsliding into pain from bare feet or bad slippers. I am practically pain free all day. What a blessing that is! Aside from the great support, this slipper is also warm and adjustable in width for wearing with/without thick/regular socks. (I wear a medium width shoe and the slipper was set to wide when it was received.) I am going to be looking for more Orthaheel products to wear for the warmer months. I highly recommend this slipper.

I've been a chef for 40 years and feet are important. Wanted a pair of slippers to sooth my barking dogs after a 12 hour day. These fill the bill and then some. The arch support, surrounding cushioning, support from a well constructed "shoe" and the ability to tighten or loosen the top makes these an outstanding choice. Will most definitely get the more open style for summer. Do not hesitate, if you've read this far just click "add to cart"!

I have plantar fasciitis and so was really hoping that these slippers would give me the support I need around the house. There were too main problems with theses shoes though. First thing I noticed that they were kinda tight across the too of my foot and where they hit was not very comfortable. I do sometimes have this problem with mules but if you have high arches like me you may want to avoid these slippers. The second problem I noticed was that they kept slipping around, mainly in the heel, when it walked. I think I will give this brand another shot (bc I've never felt shoes with as good of built in arch support as these have) but in a different style.

I have finally found the perfect slipper! I have a wide foot and also need extra arch support. Most other slippers go flat in the heel pad after a week. These are super comfy and wide enough for my needs. The heel pad has not collapsed and I'm thrilled. I plan on purchasing another pair and wear them constantly in the house.

For my plantar fasciitis problem these slippers help me a lot. They are wide, but the adjustable strap helps. Have two pair and am thinking of buying the slide strap style.

I got these for my mom who has plantar faciitus. She has had them for about three weeks and says they make a big difference in the pain level. She was putting her gym shoes on first thing in the morning and doesn't have to do that anymore.
