Cute and very comfortable. Glad I got these for wearing around the house. Especially nice for when I'm in the kitchen cooking and standing on the hard kitchen floor.

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.

from KY

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?

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
