This is a very comfortable slipper I have very bad feet and when I get home from work I can put these on and I do not have foot or back pain.

If you aren't familiar with Orthaheel, these are great products with foot issues. My Mom and sister have plantar fasciitis and swear by them. But I have Mortons Neuroma and they really do help me. These are cushiony and soft with great support. They have a shoe sole, so don't expect a light, slippery slipper. They are heavy. But my house is all tile, and it's taken a toll on my feet. These are lifesavers. They just take a little getting used to if you have never felt how they work. Great product! You won't be sorry. A pair of flip flops are next on my list, just wish they weren't so darn expensive.

I initially bought a pair of these slippers as a gift for my mother who has chronic knee pain and trouble walking due to a knee injury she sustained some years ago. she often has trouble finding shoes that offer her proper arch support and offer comfort. I decided to buy each of us a pair to see if they work. I am so happy I bought these slippers for the both of us. Now we can throw out all of our other pairs of slippers as they just don't measure up to these Vionic Orthaheel slippers. These slippers are strong and are worth the price. They are sturdy and have great support and traction. They feel more like a shoe versus a slipper. My mom loves them!

I've used an orthotic insert in my shoes and house slippers for years (pronation, high arches, plantar fasciitis). Looking through the Vionic shoes on Zappos, I came across the Gemma slippers and decided to give them a try. Love them! It's so nice to not have to constantly reposition my inserts in my old slippers because the orthotic is built into the Gemma. The material is nice - soft and fluffy and exactly what you want in a slipper. The arch support is perfect for me - no pronation whatsoever with these slippers. The sizing is just right for me - in Vionic sandals, I wear a 7 but my usual shoe size is a 6. I ordered a 6 in these and it's just right. I also have wide feet, but these slippers fit just right - not too narrow. They also have an adjustable velcro flap on the sides, so you could adjust the width if necessary. The only possible negative is that I didn't expect the heel to be as high as it is - it's higher than any traditional slipper I've ever worn, but maybe that height is necessary for the orthotic construction - I don't know. I don't think the height will be a problem, it's just a matter of me becoming accustomed to it. Overall, very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend anyone who has orthotic problems to give these a try!

I'm really enjoying these slippers. I have super-flat feet with ankle, knee, and lower back pain if I don't wear excellent arch support. I don't have wide feet, bought them a half size smaller, tightened the velcro and wear them pretty much daily. Corny as it sounds, I really can get more chores done without pain when I wear these around the house. They feel so great on my feet that I have forgotten they were on and got in my vehicle to run errands (oops). They did require a couple of days wear to break in and conform to my foot and stride. My one and only issue is that they make my toes really warm. This something I will appreciate in the winter as my feet are often quite cold and I hate wearing socks. My remedy for the meantime will be to get an open toed pair.

These are not your mother's slippers! That being said, I really like them. They support my feet like a good orthotic. Felt too stiff the first day, but they get softer and more flexible as I wear them...they are very warm and will be great for winter. For me, these are keepers.

Amazing slippers. Well worth the money. I have plantar fasciitis and when I wear these I don't feel any pain. I've already walked out of the house 4 times forgetting I had them on due to comfort and no foot pain. Wish I could wear them to work. First things I slip on in the morning and last things off when heading to bed.

There aren't any of the Vionic footwear that is not comfortable, but these are fabulous. So comfortable and if you suffer from plantar fascitis since they have a built in arch support will find them very comfortable. Fit my feet perfectly.

This is my third pair of terry mules. They are so comfortable and cozy. I purchased my first pair several years ago when I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis. Orthaheel was recommended by my podiatrist. My plantar fasciitis cleared up quickly and never came back. I attribute that to wearing the slippers and not going barefoot around the house (wood floors) along with wearing Orthaheel sandals.

I had a somewhat mild case of plantar fasciitis that, even mild, was constantly nagging at me. I have wood and stone floors throughout my entire house and it was really uncomfortable to walk around barefoot. I found these slippers and decided to try them ot based on the reviews. I was not disappointed! Wearing these and faithfully doing the stretching exercises helped get rid of my plantar fasciitis really quickly. I could tell a big difference if I tried to go barefoot again before I was fully healed. Slippers on-no pain, no slippers on-pain again. Now my plantar fasciitis is gone but I still love wearing these slippers sound the house because they're so comfortable. I wear a size 9 and they were true to size for me.

I have chronic peroneal tendonitis, which means I can never go barefoot or wear flats. It is nearly impossible to find warm slippers with a bit of a heel. Thankfully I found these -- and they even have arch support! I wish they made these in a full or bootie style, rather than just a mule, but I'll take what I can get at this point. The other slippers in this brand are flats. It took about four hours of wearing them to get used to the arch, but I'm used to wearing orthotics already so I probably had a head start there. At first the arch felt too hard, but after the first day they feel great! And so far they're warm enough. Since they're adjustable, I'll be able to wear socks with them come winter. I normally wear a 9.5D in sneakers, and the 9 in this style fits great. Very happy!

I have bunions and use orthotics. My podiatrist recommended this brand for slippers and other shoes that would not take orthotics because of style. I bought two pair of these slippers. These felt a little odd when I first put them on but were my favorite slippers after a few minutes. I bought a size 6...thought I would wear my normal 7, but there was too much room sticking out from the heel with the 7. Would recommend these...very comfortable.

Brands I'd also recommend: Naot - solid support, removeable footbed to replace with orthotics

Cannot wash slipper! These slippers are wonderful, but learned they are not Washable. Slippers are worn every single day. It's unthinkable to make them so they cannot be thoroughly washed! Why?

I ordered this slipper in the mint/white polka dots (in terry, so cute!) and I absolutely love them! They have a deep heel cup and supportive arch, which is very comfortable especially for those who have bad feet. These slippers are wide enough for my foot to spread out without causing further irritation to my issues and they. I practically live in these when I'm not wearing shoes and they've lasted me a solid two years before the foot bed lining starting to roll back but they are in good shape otherwise. Because my slippers are well loved, I decided to buy myself another pair and since they don't have the mint/white ones, I tried the zebra slippers. I didn't realize that the zebra slippers weren't terry cloth so when I tried them on, the top lip of the slipper dug into the top of my foot and it's too painful to wear them. These are going back and I will only buy the ones made of terry, which have a little bit of give when you wear them.

I bought these on the recommendation of my niece and I absolutely can't stop raving about them. They are unbelievably comfortable and the Velcro sides adjusted down to accommodate my narrow (AA) feet. They have heavenly arch support and are nice & warm & snuggly. Yes, they are expensive and worth every penny. Especially when you consider how much time is spent in them.

So comfortable. Arch support and extra cushion on the heel. So nice for long days on my hardwood-over-slab floors. I ordered a size larger than normal to accommodate thick socks.

Was experiencing edema from cancer treatment & was only able to wear slippers. Ended up ordering a number of really cute slippers from Zappos because of their excellent return policy. I originally ordered these slippers in a size larger than normal (11) in the zebra pattern to accommodate my situation & they worked well. These slippers are not cute but so comfortable, supportive, & functional that I ordered another pair (black) in my size (10). Sent the cute slippers back (didn't fit & no support) and am totally happy with the Vionic Orthaheel slipper. Thanks to Zappos for enabling me to try a number of slippers and find something that worked for my situation. Most of the shoes in my closet are from Zappos because of their incredible return policy.

This is my 2nd pair of this slipper - I keep them in 2 different locations. I have terrible bunions & they have really eased my foot fatigue when I need to stand for long times. I wish they came in half size but they serve my needs.

Wearing them right now. Size 7 perfect for me though I take a 7 1/2. I decided to call as I had a question and the representative was most helpful in helping me decide on size. Soft, attractive and supportive (I have a foot problem & need support). A bit warm for hot weather though, but it's not so hot often where I am. I recommend these slippers.
