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?

Brands I'd also recommend: I ONLY WEAR 'ORTHO' SHOES DUE TO FEET PROBLEMS... I WEAR STREET SHOES AND SLIPPERS. NOTHING ELSE!

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 love these slippers. I wore one pair out, and I am starting on second pair. They are wonderful if you need an arch support.

Brands I'd also recommend: I really like Merrile but need better support than they provide.

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.

Brands I'd also recommend: for slipper, none

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.

I was recently diagnosed with plantar fasciaitis and was looking for a supportive slipper since my shoes come off the minute I get home. These are perfect! I will definitely consider other Vionic products in the future.

from S.D. Ca.

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.

I have very high arches so I can't wear flat shoes or slippers. These are great! Very comfortable. They look as good as they do on web site. I also have the sandals and they are comfortable.

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 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.
