Love these shoes! Very cute and stylish and will go with everything from jeans to dress pants. I have painful plantar fasciatis and these were comfortable as soon as I put them. Wore them the entire day with no problem. Would definitely recommend them. Wish they came in blue!

The arches on this shoe threw my foot out of alignment. I have a moderately high arch, and a foot injury, and these shoes hurt my feet.

I have been wearing a specific orthopedic sneaker for years but they have quit making that model. I was in a panic as to what I could find to replace them. This shoe is fantastic. Not only does it fulfill my need for orthopedic support, it looks and feels great. I am extremely pleased to be able to wear real shoes again.

Love it! I'm on my feet at work at the hospital all day long and these shoes are definitely made for long walking and standing! Would recommend them to anyone.

These shoes fit perfectly for me! Great heel height and great arch support. I wish Orthaheel had more variety in their non-sandal selection. And more offerings in wide widths.

Love this shoe and had such high hopes for it. However, I have very high arches and the shoe was too tight over the top of my foot. Sadly they are going back.

I usually wear 8 in Orthaheel sandals, but these ran a little small. Very cute though. Will try the next size.

I ordered this shoe in a size 8, the same size as the last pair of Orthaheel shoes that I ordered, and they were too short. The Porto II sandals were a perfect fit in length with the arch support in the perfect place for me, but these were too short with the arch support too far forward. The toe box was a little loose, and I wish it had some way to adjust the width, but it would have been okay. Overall I thought the shoe looked cute in the picture, and I wish the sizing was like the other Orthaheel's I have.

Didn't like this shoe at all. Would rather have a leather than this man-made material. Didn't feel like my other Orthaheel at all. Will be returning them.

I put this shoe on and immediately loved it. I have a pair of Orthaheel sandals that I purchased 2 years ago, but have not worn them much because they are not that comfortable. I need the Orthaheel because I pronate badly. These shoes were so comfortable as soon as I put them on! I had double knee replacement 8 months ago and was having tremendous problems with my feet because with the re-alignment of my knees, my arches seemed to have moved, thus, my custom orthotics no longer fit properly; I was miserable. When I went anywhere, I would take two extra pairs of shoes to switch off during the day to try and alleviate pain. I would go to bed at night with my feet just aching and my knees hurt. I had excruciating pain when straightening my knee after sleep in one position for several hours. For the past two nights, NO foot pain and NO knee pain! Hooray for my Rachel Leaf Mule!

I love these shoes! They have a really good arch support, which eases the pain of my plantar fascitis, and the roomy toe box accommodates my bunion. They were comfy right out of the box, and I wear them all day long without pain. Bless you Zappos for introoducing me to Orthaheel! I will definitely be buying more!

These are the best Orthaheel shoes they make...I'm on my second pair. Don't think my feet would have survived last season without them. Please don't discontinue them. Try the Talia and Julie sandals also.

Wonderful! I work on my feet 10-12 hours on concrete floors. These shoes are my savior! I sized up and got a 9 (I'm regularly an 8 1/2). They fit like a glove! I have been recommending these to everyone.

I like these shoes a lot. I've worn them since last fall and it is now spring. So, I'm looking for the same shoe in white. They don't make them in anything but brown and black -- totally unacceptable for summer. Please make the Rachel Leaf Mule in white! If they did that, I would wear this shoe year round forever. My problem was plantar fasciitis. My foot felt better right away when I started wearing these, but of course not an instant, magic cure. The pain gradually diminished and it is completely gone now. Thanks Orthaheel for making this shoe, but please make it in white. I'm thinking of buying another black and spray painting it white. You can tell, I really like this shoe. It works great for me. I don't care that it's not genuine leather, because it costs less this way, feels fine on my foot, and looks good.

Brands I'd also recommend: no idea, this is the only shoe I've found that works like this

I have a torn posterior tibial tendon. My foot is collapsing down and inward. Orthaheels are the only shoes I can wear and are more comfortable than my custom orthotics.

I have chronic knee pain and both feet pronate. I decided to give these a try after seeing them on QVC. I love them! They have excellent arch support and keep my feet where they are supposed to be. As soon as I can I am buying more. The only issue I had was with the width. They don't come in wide width and I have wide feet. But they're leather and are stretching out.

I am having treatments for my arthritic knees, and discovered the Orthaheel brand of shoes with an orthotic that helps to straighten my legs and relieve pressure on my knees. I have bought several of the Orthaheel styles. I like the Rachel Leaf Mule because it is dressier, while still providing the support I need.

Hello arch support! I asked for it and I got it. Felt great right out of the box. I will definitely do as they say and only wear them for a few hours at a time at first. My feet do not hurt! I was fully ready for an ugly pair of shoes, but they are cute for as orthotic as they are. I could do without the velcro (it looks dorky and clunky), but it is nice to have a little back on there so my toes don't have to hold onto the shoe for dear life. If they could just make these shoes a tad cuter, I would be thrilled with them! I have been wearing them for several hours now and my feet are not sweaty. I will review again once I have had them for awhile. Thanks Zappos for having everything under the sun!!

I have read the reviews, I have a lot of the problems others have regarding foot problems. This are nice shoes, however my right foot pronates very badly. I thought the back strap would help keep my foot more upright, but it does not, and the seams on the toes hit in the wrong place for me, or my foot sets in the wrong place for the shoe, I will be returning the shoes.

Wonderful shoe! Took me a bit of breaking in because my foot skin was so tender. These shoes (and many other Orthaheel styles have a rather hard surface, which was uncomfortable at first. BUT now after a couple of weeks they feel great and slip on and off easily. Most important, they keep your foot from favoring one side or the other. They have changed my posture. I have 4 pairs of Orthaheels now and recommend them highly!

I loved this style in black so much I bought the brown ones. I get compliments on the look, but the important thing is that my HEELS don't hurt anymore. I could hardly walk before ORTHOHEEL. Jusy saying.

I love them. I had a tendonitis recently but wearing Orthaheels really helps. I do not have to wear my ortho inserts. These, I wear with most everything except super dressy. Comfort first!

This is my first pair of Orthaheels and I just love them! They are so comfortable. I have high ridged arches (and a bunion). The strap can be adjusted for hose, light or heavy socks. The arch support is better than Clarks.
