Nice looking shoes, not as bulky as the walker. Unlike other Ultraheel shoes, these can be ordered in 1/2 sizes. I ordered my normal size, but they were very tight both in length and width. They didn't have as much arch support as the walkers, so I didn't order a size bigger. The arch support in these is equal to the Mary Janes, which isn't enough for my plantar fasciitis.

Wanted these to work and seemed perfect for my narrow, high arched feet. Tried to wear them for 3 days and they caused pain after each wearing. They seem cheap...I should not have to break in a pair of walking shoes at this price. Dr. Weil needs to skip the Zen stuff and make some quality shoes.

This is the second pair of Rhythm Walkers I have bought, the first time in black and now in white. They are so comfortable and supportive, and I have a very hard time finding a comfortable fit. Ordering a half size larger than my usual size worked great.

I had knee surgery 4 months ago so needed some good supporting shoes. These fit the bill perfectly. They look really nice too! Loved them so much I bought a second pair in a different color. GREAT SNEAKERS!

Compared to other Orthaheel shoes I have. They are not as wide, I have a narrow to medium width foot, and they were perfect. In other Orthaheel styles, I have to downsize a whole size, in this one, a half size. The arches support is excellent. The top of the shoe is a flexible fabric like upper, which allow all my foot lumps and bumps to mold the shoe comfortably! An added bonus is they look great and make my size 10 foot look smaller! Thanks Zappos for your easy ordering process and fantastic return policy!

Very light and comfortable. Has the great orthaheel support. I suffer from heel spurs and am trying to get back to walking for exercise. I have two other pairs of orthaheel...they are pretty well the only thing I can wear. I would not hesitate to recommend these shoes and the orthaheel brand in general.

These are nice shoes, with good arch support, and a nice padded heel. They are not as heavy and bulky as most supportive walking shoes. They run very small! I usually wear a 7½, but the 8 was small. I am returning them.

I ordered these in my usual size. I wear a half size smaller in the orthaheel Mary Jane. These were too small in my usual size but I cannot order a half size larger because my size is 10.5 and they don't make it in this size for some reason. If it runs this small they should make it in larger sizes. I wrote Dr. Weil on his site two times about this, because the shoe itself is comfortable just tight. I received no answer to the email. I had to send these back.

I love these shoes! I have plantar issues and they work like a charm. I did listen to others who said they ran small and ordered the next half size up. That was a smart move!

I have a heel spur. I could not walk without pain. I bought Vionic with Orthaheel - I am walking pain-free. It was a wonderful purchase for me. I bought a half size larger the my usual and it was a perfect fit.

This is my second pair of these shoes...I have a super high arch and plantar fasciitis, so I am delighted to find Orthaheel. I always buy 1/2 size larger in a walking/gym shoe and these are no exception...I love the gray color as it has a slight purple tone. They not only feel good but look good too.

The sneakers are great! Good structure & stability. Very good arch support. I suffer from plantar fasciitis and wore these shoes for 10-12 hours a day walking through Disney parks and me feet barely felt tired at the end of the day. Zappos customer service can't be beat with shipping speeds and returns.

This walking shoe has been a lifesaver for me. Had very expensive orthotics custom made in spring and still in some pain. Can walk in these shoes without the orthotics and be on my feet a lot and no pain, such great feeling! I also bought the Orthaheel shoe style Kate and wear it for dress wear. Happy feet!

If you have pronated feet, as I do, you will be amazed how comfortable this sneaker is. The Orthaheel line re-aligns your foot to be in a natural position, and as such, is perfect for me. I can walk much longer in this sneaker without foot fatigue. I love it.

Love these shoes! I have plantar fasciitis and the pain went away immediately! I wear them every day and walk 3-5 miles per day. I am also on my feet for 8 hours 5 days a week as a surgical nurse.

I have been wearing orthotics for 12 years until I started wearing these Orthaheel sneakers and my feet with heel and bone spurs feel GREAT! I normally wear a 5 1/2 wide, the 6 fits perfectly

I am so pleased that I have finally found a walking shoe that has the support I need. I have less pain in my feet, knees, and back since wearing the rhythm walkers. Not to mention that they don't look like an orthotic shoe. Thank you!

These shoes are great. The arch support is amazing; and they are very lightweight. There is no slipping on the heal, ample width and overall very comfortable. I like the color...not so tennis shoe looking in the dark brown.

I would recommend this shoe to anyone who has flat feet. I have tried a lot of insoles and inserts, but none of these would really do the job. I still had pain in my knee from an unsupported arch. This shoe is great. I now can go back to walking every day.

I'm very disappointed in a shoe Dr Weil has his name on. I'm losing weight and have been building up walking stamina. These gave me terrible blisters on the balls of my feet. There is no forward foot support and no arch support, despite the very good pronation support. So these are rather expensive weekend errand shoes. I wonder if Dr Weil ever wore them on hilly walks for extended lengths if time. Also, some stitching has come out. They only get worn once or twice a week and not for gardening or other rough stuff.

These shoes exceeded my expectations. They are incredibly comfortable with built in orthotics. I am on my feet for 10 hours at a time and my back, legs and feet never hurt when I am wearing these shoes. They are slightly heavier than your average sneaker due to the built in support. This has not been a problem for me.
