These shoes are my first order from Zappos and I am impressed! Zappos offers a large variety of shoes in many styles and sizes. I think the best part is being able to read what other customers write about the shoes so that you have a good idea of how the shoes will fit and feel. These shoes felt different at first but soon began to feel wonderful. My feet don't hurt any more! I work 12 hour days as a nurse so my feet take a pounding and these shoes don't hurt my feet even at the end of the day!

I was hesitant ordering shoes that I'd never seen or heard of before looking on Zappos website but the description spoke to me. These Orthaheels are fantastic. They fit perfectly and my constant knee pain has disappeared! I also have a bunion that has stopped aching since I started wearing my Orthaheels. I saw them featured on one of those TV shopping networks after I'd been wearing mine for a bit but they were more expensive. I'm sticking to Zappos for all my shoe shopping!

I love Orthaheel shoes! This pair I have in 3 colors and they are a life-saver. If you work in a retail environment for 9 hours or more a day, the stability & comfort are great, the look is great & the price is right from Zappos!

I purchased a pair of Elisa shoes in brown and they helped my knees so much I purchased the black ones too. I also have 2 pairs of the flip flops. My Orthoheels are worth every dollar I paid for them! Have always had problems with my knees and I recommend Orthoheel products for this problem.

These shoes are great and stylish. They are comfortable while I am on my feet all day, yet they look great to dress up with jeans!

I finally found my shoes for Europe! They are super comfortable. I love the angled strap with the ridge on the toe - a nice, not-so-obvious take on a Mary Jane. They are perfect for putting orthotics in, although you might not even need them because the insoles are super comfy! I have weird feet (kind of wide/bony, high arches) and it took a long time to find a pair of shoes that will be comfortable with a lot of walking. They don't pinch my toes, they don't rub on my heel at all. They are lightweight and flexible. I hope Orthaheel adds more fun styles like this to their line. I will be a repeat customer.

These shoes are absolutely the best! They are smart -looking, comfortable on my problematic feet, and can be worn for many hours without heel or arch pain. In fact, I ordered a second pair because I am so pleased. My local shoe store sells them for more plus tax, and in only black! Thank you, Zappos.

These are exactly the shoes that i have been looking for. Mary Janes, flats, non-leather, square toe, comfortably fit my big, wide, flat feet. The arch support feels oddly-placed at first, but I think it is part of the orthopedic design. I wore them all day and still felt like a dream. I am terribly pleased with these. I think it will save my pennies to buy them in yellow, too.

Just took these out of the box. Wow! They feel great. The color is less "mustard" and more "natural" colored. I like these.

I was recently diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis, and had been searching for relief from different foot inserts, to no avail. Then the problem was aggravated when I actually tore my fascia while on a walk; the pain was excruciating and the only solution was to continue the exercises and "wait it out." That's when I found these Orthaheel shoes. Literally the instant I slipped them on my feet the pain was gone! The orthotic included in the footbed holds my heel and entire foot in exactly the right way. After wearing them for a couple of days, my pain is all but gone, even when I'm not wearing them. I love them so much that I bought a second pair. Plus, this style is fairly fashionable, all things considered. They are absolutely worth every penny - I can't recommend them highly enough.

These shoes are extremely comfortable for my fallen arches/plantar fascia and otherwise. I took a chance on the black ones a couple months ago and love them so much I just ordered them in brown and red, too. They are much cuter "in person" than they look in the picture, too. Much. They curved raised stitched area gives them a really nice look that you can't really appreciate from the photos.

Love this shoe. I usually wear orthotics but don't feel any pain if I don't while wearing these shoes. I would definitely recommend these shoes.

I was disappointed in that the upper is man-made and not leather. Seems awfully pricy fora composite upper. Fit is OK but would have returned them before wearing outside had I realized the upper was not leather. Surprising for the price.

Finally! I have ordered and returned many shoes in an effort to find a shoe that fits my daughter's bunions. Once we took out the insole (she also has flat feet) she proclaimed these a perfect fit. Thank you Zappos!

After many tries, this is finally the one. Can't live without my Orthaheels (own 3 pair of sandals and one pair of maryjanes). Buying the sandals was quite easy, but finding a nice looking pair of flats to wear in the cooler weather has been a challenge. Will probably also buy them in black. As others have commented - wish Orthaheel would come up with more smart looking shoes. Desperately need the support, but don't want to look so out of style.

Brands I'd also recommend: Haven't found any !!

I am not sure what exactly is missing, but it seems these shoes need more support for individuals that seriously overpronate. I was expecting better shoes for the cost, but I will continue to wear these because there are so few dress shoe options for individuals that overpronate. I will continue to search for other brands. Plus the arch support seemed slightly off. Orthaheel, if you can make better shoes please do!

Not the prettiest shoes, but they are comfortable, although the arch support is not as good as the Tides. However, when I wear them with knee-hi's, they make a weird squeaking sound when I walk (embarrassing in a quiet office). Also, for the price, why aren't they leather? I think my feet will sweat in these come summer. They will probably be going back.

This is a very comfortable shoe. The arch support is excellent. I wish that the shoe was not man-made materials. Leather would be better.

Comfort is the key here, however, beware - these shoes are noisy, squeaky loud! I can't believe I paid this much for non-leather, noisy shoes no matter how comfortable.

I have been searching for a non flip flop style of Orthaheel brand. I tried several, which is what I love about Zappos easy shipping policy! While I didn't feel these were clunky as some said, I did feel the arch is just in the wrong place. I need the width in the toes, so I liked the style, but all of the newer styles of Orthaheel seem to be coming out with the arch back just a bit too far. I am an exclusive Orthaheel wearer, so this new problem with the brand has been frustrating. My feet are Orthaheel conditioned (even wear the slippers), so I sense the change immediately and do not like it. Please convey to Orthaheel that this is souring me on the brand!

Was super excited to receive these shoes. Was extremely let down when I tried them on. My arches didn't fit where they should and it looked very awkward! Really had my hopes up on these. Sorry these are going back!

As I intend to return these shoes, but felt they would arrive better if I sent them after the holidays, so I do not know if you want to publish this. I find the shoes too "shallow" for me to wear my orthotics and not enough strength in the counter to hold my foot upright. Not the problem with the shoe, but with the fit, however, I was surprised they were all man made. However, I am on my second pair of Orthaheel walker and find them an excellent substitute to wear when my cast brace gets tiresome.

Brands I'd also recommend: know of no other brand who has the same orthoheel.

I thought the arch was too far back - towards my heel - but when I wore them my arches felt great so it worked! (I have plantar fasciitis and stand all day... ouch!) But the material was too stiff and uncomfortable so back they go. Also they are way too wide. Sorry, Zappos.
