I don't normally like the flip flop style because the thong aggravates between my toes- but these felt good. The foot bed is awesome, very shock absorbent - love this. They did feel a little narrow, not too bad. Also I would really like an 8.5. 8 fits, but is a little small. 9 is too big for me.

I love this shoe! It arrived today and I am not disappointed. Kudos to Orthaheel for developing fashion forward, trendy summer sandals for women who suffer from foot problems! I have plantar fasciitis and have suffered many, many summers from wearing regular sandals adding a plastic gel arch support (which was never enough because it never met the rest of my feet's needs). But this shoe has it all. It is very trendy. I don't feel any of complaints the other reviewer wrote about as there is an extra soft strap under the embellishments so I don't even feel them. I wear a 7 1/2 shoe, sometimes an 8 to accommodate orthotics in closed in shoes. Bought these in a size 7 and it is perfect! I got the black and white. The black is quite dressy with the silver studs so I can wear them with a nice dress and still look trendy and comfortable and the white looks sharp too. Another thing, I can't wear the regular Orthaheel flip flops as they are too big in the sense that I don't have a big enough foot to keep them on, but with the strap on these that is no worries as I can tighten the side and the top of the shoe keeps my foot snug and supported in the base.

I love this shoe. Just received in brown and am very pleased. It's pretty, feminine, but still has the support I need - hard to find. Size seems true to me - I wear an 8, and have a wide foot, and ordered 8, they fit great - there is a little extra room above my toes, but not so much that it look weird. I think with a smaller size the arch would hit me wrong.

I bought the Julie in white/silver. Amazing support, and so much style! I get so many compliments on this sandal. No one knows it's an orthopedic shoe cause it's so stylish. I loved it so much I came back to buy it in black/gold. I have planter fasciitis and have had foot surgery on one foot to correct hammer toes and bunions, Orthaheel has been a dream come true for me! No more feet problem and no more lower back pain! I now own 6 pairs of Vionic Orthaheels, 3 sandals, 2 slippers and 1 sneaker! I love Orthaheel!

I wore these shoes while traveling in London and Russia this summer...after just having physical therapy for plantar fasciitis. I was very worried how my feet would do with all the walking we were doing. These shoes were awesome! I never had problems with my PF. My feet were beat from all the walking we did, but that was expected! No PF pain was a surprise. And these shoes looked cute in all the photos too with those epic sites we were visiting!

I have gotten so many compliments on my Julie Slide w/Strap shoes. I ordered another pair in a different color. Very comfortable and if you have ever ordered from Zappos, you will find the speed of delivery is amazing. I always look here first when I need shoes or jeans. Zappos is awesome.

These are so pretty that I bought a second pair in a different color. The bronze color is fabulous. On another note - I have flat feet and plantar fasciitis and I am so grateful to find a CUTE pair of shoes that are also VERY comfortable.

Love these shoes! I am new to the Orthaheel brand. Wish I had found them sooner. I have tried many other comfort brands to help with problems I've had with arch pain and heel pain. These shoes have amazing shock absorption (I walk on concrete floors all day), are very supportive and comfortable. Very cute with capris, skirts, jeans. Every time I wear them people ask me where I got them.

Extremely comfortable with great arch support. This style gave my arches wonderful support, and my bunions were not under any pressure. A very comfortable sandal and very pretty too!

These sandals are totally cute; in fact, it's hard to believe they are orthotic. I've had several foot surgeries (bunions/joint replacement) so I'm pretty limited in what I can wear. These sandals fit the bill. Normally I have to wear big clunky shoewear to get the support I need - until Orthaheel sandals. Awesome, and worth every penny!

Love these shoes! Extremely comfortable but cute. I wore them shopping all day right out of the box, and received multiple compliments on them. Even better, my feet did not hurt or feel tired after walking around all day. I usually wear 8 1/2, but after reading the reviews, ordered the 8. They fit perfectly.

I love this sandal! I have several different styles of Orthaheel sandals but this is absolutely by far my favorite. I own the metallic one but am buying the black today. I get compliments everywhere I go while wearing the Julie sandal. No one would ever guess it is an orthotic sandal. I wear between a 9 1/2 and 10 in most shoes but I regularly fit perfectly in a 9 in Orthaheels.

I love these sandals. They are my 5th pair of Orthaheel sandals, and the classiest thus far. The fit is as the others ( I wear an 8 1/2 shoe and always order an 8 in these sandals.) There is a small price to pay. The little bit of bling did rub the top of my foot when I first bought them, but they are fine now(after the third wearing). If you are looking for the Orthaheel comfort, with a little more style, these are the shoes for you. PS. I love Zappos and the way they do business! I always order shoes from them when I can.

Love these sandals. Comfortable...I can walk around town for a few hours...and stylish. I don't know how long the Orthaheel lasts, and will probably hold off buying anymore until I figure that out. I have found that a lot of the "comfort" shoes wear out pretty fast.

As a 22 year old with RA effecting my feet I needed sandals that provided enough support that didn't make the pain worse in my feet. I was beyond excited to find these sandals, not only are they cute but they so comfortable I can wear them all day! I was a little unsure about the price, but they are completely worth it! These are my second pair of Orthaheel sandals, my first being just basic flip flops. I will be buying more styles!

I was really excited with these sandals! I have fairly ugly feet (long, narrow with long "monkey toes, my second toe is longer that and my big toe etc.) I normally would not have even tried this shoe, but I want so bad to have trendy styles! The fact that this shoe has an orthotic shaped foot bed, helps hold my foot in a more attractive shape, plus it's comfortable to walk in. I have received multiple compliments on them. I never thought in a million years I'd own a shoe like this!

These sandals are very cute and comfortable. I have plantar fasciitis and these have helped keep the pain at bay. The arch is very high and provides lots of support. The sole is a bit thick, so not as dressy looking as one might like, but still the cutest sandal available for the amount of support.

I love this shoe so cute! However, I ordered the 7 and then traded for the 8, unfortunately toe bed is too narrow and my little toe hangs off the edge. I've never had that problem before. The best Orthaheel I've owned had a cork sole, which sadly I do not see this year. I have plantar fascia and the Clark's flip flops are excellent. Causes no pain!

I waited a few days to review this shoe. I had trouble believing that I had actually found a cute sandal that I could wear without knee pain. I have had 3 knee surgeries and can only wear very cushioned running shoes and occasionally I wear Uggs in the winter. If I try to wear Ugg flip-flops or anything else for more than 1/2 hour I am in such pain it just isn't worth it but it is very hard to dress for events. I got these and like it said, broke them in over a few days, a few hours a day. No problems, I feel great. Really surprised because they don't feel that cushy but it must be the orthotics. I even bought a second pair, in coral, and then...a pair of the Ariels for just around the house if I go out to water or a trip to the beach. I am so happy! But they really are difficult to buckle and velcro would be a better option. In many cases you are working with people who have compromised flexibility already. Bending my knee back to get to the buckle is really hard.

I love the shoe and am very sad to have to return it. Because of severe swelling of my left foot at this time, I cannot buckle the back strap. I'll try another style.

I absolutely love these sandals. I have a pair of their flip flops and have been looking for something dressy to wear. Orthaheels are one of the few with decent arches in them for my plantar fasciitis. These look adorable too!

I simply could not be more thrilled with these shoes. I refuse to wear orthopedic shoes, but my feet are screaming to me that they disagree. These are the cutest shoes and look adorable, but better yet, they helped immensely with my plantar faciitis pain. My pain was so severe in one foot I could really barely walk. Wearing these shoes doesn't make the pain go away, but it makes it tolerable. Yay! They are pricey for sandals, but well worth the price.
