I bought last year's version of this sandal and really loved wearing it - it was cute, comfortable, lightweight, and offered decent arch support. However, it fell apart before the summer ended. When I received the product originally, I doubted whether the price tag would be worth it, but gave in because it was so comfortable. Turns out my first instinct was correct. These should last more than 3/4 of a summer, but they don't. The straps detached from the footbed and left me using a rubber band to keep them on my feet until I got home.

Sadly, after reading the reports about poor workmanship and/or quality control, I am not going to order any of these shoes/sandals. This is getting to be a major problem, not just with shoes, but clothing also. Can't we find some decent shoes, etc., made in America by people who understand our sizing? I can't tell you how many items I've had to return to many companies this summer. Please get back home.

Love the way the support and treat my feet. Honestly, right now the only sandals I can wear are Orthaheels. Because of all my painful foot issues (neuromas, bunions, cysts, hyperflexsive wide feet with high aches)The only drawback is the styling. I would love to see real leather and a more youthful upper, but with the same footbed!

Wonderful comfort. I usually need an orthotic but with these, I don't! I have a very narrow foot and the Velcro holds me in the shoe!

My wife loves these sandals! She has worn them from day one. She had a pair of the older model of these and lost one and was broken hearted, so I got her these and she absolutely loves them.

Brands I'd also recommend: none! These are great sandals!!!

Wonderfully comfortable sandal. First time I've had a pair sandals that I could wear all day without throbbing feet at the end of the day. I have wide feet and the adjustable straps are a big plus. Also purchased in black.

I wear a size 9 in most shoes and that's what I ordered here, but it was way too big. I reordered a size 8 and it is a perfect fit. Once I got the correct size the shoe is very comfortable, the bottoms of my feet don't hurt at all while wearing them.

After reading the reviews, I decided to order these sandals in a size smaller than I normally wear and I am very glad that I did. They are comfortable with very nice arch support but they definitely runs large. Overall, they are nice looking sandals although the jewels do look a little cheap.

These are stylish shoes; they have great arch support, BUT these shoes DO NOT come in 1/2 sizes. The size 5 is slightly too small, and the 6 is slightly too large; I have a wide short foot. I was desperate for shoes, so I kept the size 5.

I ordered two pairs of last year’s version, Porto. I had just been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis and went on vacation to Florida. I ordered and had them delivered to me in Florida and they saved me from having to wear the big, heavy, hot air cast! My arch felt great too, and for me, with very low insteps, the adjustability is just what I need. Love these sandals. I think because I had two pairs that preserved each pair so that they are still in good condition and I can use them this summer, but I'm ordering a pair of this year's version, too! My only complaint is that there is a good quarter-inch difference in length between my black pair and my pewter pair, and both are size 8. Quality control issue, made in China! Because of that, I gave only 4 stars for overall rating.

I was looking for a comfortable slide-type shoe because I can't wear thongs. This felt great right away and was waterproof to boot; the arch support is so wonderful that I told several friends about it. However, it is cheaply made. Within a week of daily wear around the house it showed visible wear, and the top and bottom parts of the sole have started to come apart after about three months of wear just in the house! It was also pretty expensive! Orthaheel, your footbed is wonderful, so please make your product to higher standards.

So comfortable -- especially with the adjustable straps -- but so cheap looking! I'm keeping these because I'm desperate and I love the Orthaheel footbed, but I am so disappointed with the $5 upper on these shoes. How long will they last? Good question. The stitching isn't finished properly on one of the straps -- already unraveling out of the box. If only I could have a Clarks upper on these!

The big fake gems on this sandal make it look old-lady-ish, like something my Aunt Dottie would wear. Comfortable, though.

Be warned, if you scuff any of the footbed, the color underneath does not match. Does not look good, and is very easy to scuff. I also don't think the arch support is as good as Tide, but it is dressier for work.

I really like this sandal! It's comfortable and stays on my foot. I ordered my regular size and it fit perfectly, after adjusting the straps. I wore them all summer and into the fall and they still look brand new. I'm sure I'll be able to wear them all next summer as well, maybe longer!

Love the arch support! The strap that goes from top to toe has a tendency to shift, but otherwise they are very comfortable and I will buy more next summer. It is also very helpful to be able to adjust the straps for swollen feet. Yes, I would recommend them to a friend.

I love this shoe! It has a great deal of arch support, hard to find in sandals. The adjustable straps just add to the comfort. I did have to switch to a size 5 even though I wear a 6 in almost every other shoe.

I purchased these sandals and have worn them for two seasons. They feel great on my feet and are finally starting to show wear at the end of the second season. I will definitely buy these again.

I was very pleased to find a pair of comfort sandals with a bit more style than my usual Birkenstocks. These shoes are very well cushioned and comfortable. The velcro straps allow a custom fit and are not really noticeable when positioned carefully. As always, the customer service at Zappos is unequaled by any other in my experience. Their inventory is huge and it is such a pleasure to find a shoe I'd like to have, place my order and have it delivered the next day!

I have bought Porto II in brown and cream as well as Yasmin in black. They are fabulous for my plantar fasciitis. I do not know what I would do without them. I use doctor's prescribed orthotics in the closed shoes that I must wear at work, but the minute I can take them off I wear the Orthaheels. I thought I would need the Yasmin back strap, but the placement of the other two straps makes the Porto II perfectly secure. I normally wear AA narrow shoes, but the Velcro straps adjust to fit. I highly recommend both styles.

True comfort and great support. These sandals fit perfectly, thanks to the 3 velcro straps. It may take a day or so to get used to the arch support, but then it's like wearing no shoes at all! And they don't slide off your feet while you're walking. If you hate wearing shoes (and I hate wearing shoes), you will love wearing these sandals.

This is a fantastic sandal! I had a terrible ankle injury four years ago (complete ligament tear). I did PT for two months, but two years later, I developed tendinitis in that leg. I had two more months of PT, and the podiatrist told me I can not wear flat shoes with no support anymore. My feet are quite flat and wide. So, I have a closet full of "comfort" sandals that feel good, but don't look great for work because they are too casual looking. This shoe is a support shoe that is actually pretty and dressier than any comfort shoe I've ever had. They feel amazing -- the most comfortable shoe I've ever tried. I'm usually a 9.5 wide, but these are fine in 9 in the regular width they come in. The level of support they offer is amazing. My bad ankle almost feels like it has a brace on. These sandals make me feel very stable on my feet. I wish Orthaheel made more shoe styles.
