Love Orthaheel! I have had these over three months. This is my second pair of Orthaheel sandals. They have great arch support. When my feet ache from standing all day, I can put these on an my feet instantly feel better.

I purchased these shoes for my trip to Vegas because I knew I was going to do a lot of walking. Normally, when I travel to Vegas I experience the worst pain after walking so much because of the heat and my Plantar Fasciitis. This is the best shoe EVER! I walked all day and all night and felt no pain at ALL! They are incredible! No leg pain NOTHING! I love these shoes and I am so glad I made the investment because that is exactly what it was an EXCELLENT investment!

The Orthaheel Ariel is very comfortable. It's wonderful to have an open slip-on shoe that supports my arch while I'm coping with my plantar fasciitis. This style is also very true to size. A real winner!

I love these shoes. I'm 30 and a Hairdresser, I stand all day but have been searching for a shoes that had a little bit of a younger look and not so orthopedic looking. I usually wear a 9 but ordered a 8 and they fit great! I would definitely recommend them!

Very cute and classy flip flop with just the right amount of sparkle, not to mention the great support! Have gotten a lot of compliments too. I saw some other flips flops with a starfish design at a local retailer but they were cheaper quality, no support, and more expensive. These sandals can't be beat. Love my Orthaheels!

These are the most comfortable flip flops for walking! I have medium width feet and find that many comfort shoes are too wide. These are perfect. I do not have high arches or any other issues with my feet and find these sandals great for walking a lot. They have a cushioned footbed which makes the extra support super comfortable. Love these! I usually wear a 7 or 7.5 in shoes and the 7 fit perfectly.

Really adorable shoes, but I had to return them, as they did not work on my feet. While Orthaheel advertises as a comfort product that may help people with flat feet/no arches and helps correct pronation, what they do not say is that their shoes are not recommended for those who have a problem with supination. I called Orthaheel directly and found this out, then went to my doctor to confirm that I do have a problem with supination, and now am returning them. They are really cute, wish I could have kept them.

I love these (in silver) so much that I ordered them in black and gold. I have had prior spinal surgeries and knee replacements and my stance has been off (think my whole axis is off) and I have developed calluses on both feet under the joints of the big toes. This has been ongoing and annoying and not nice to see and hard to deal with. Someone told me to try the Orthaheel's as they would "straighten" out my foot/leg and they have!!! I cannot believe how much better my stance is, I feel like I'm walking normal and the pain I was experiencing in my feet, legs and sometimes lower back is virtually gone. I was afraid at first thinking they were going to be some ugly ortho-type sandals but they are not. They are so stylish and I get compliments everywhere I go. I love the fact that the arch is what is doing the trick! All of my flat flip flops are now gone forever - and it makes sense - we should not be walking in flat shoes/sandals as we have a natural arch. I've ended up purchasing about ten different pairs in different styles and colors and just love each and every one of them! Thank you Orthaheel and thank you Zappos for carrying such a wide selection!

I think these are great! I used to live in flat flip flops until I discovered these. They do take a bit to get used to so don't write them off too soon. I normally wear a 10.5 or 11 (I know, huge feet) but in these the size 10 were a perfect fit. I love these, very good for my feet and back! Also the cute little starfish make them look extra cute.

I love this sandal! After hurting my right foot Doctor said I should only wear orthaheel sandals..only problem with this shoe is that the decoration is off centered and rubs against my toes.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these sandals. I ordered these to wear at my beach/starfish theme wedding next week. I can't wear sandals because they have no support and I suffer from plantar faciitis. Ordered my normal size (10) and they fit like a glove. I do have narrow feet though so someone with wide feet might need a larger size. I will buy another pair of Orthaheel sandals.

I have knee problems because I overpronate so finding cute shoes is always a problem. These are adorable and so comfortable. The Ariel sandal is narrower than the Orthaheel Tide (which is quite wide and very rigid) I wear a 7-1/2 B and ordered an 8 as instructed to go up a half size. The fit is good for me. They are a softer, squishier sole than the Tide but still manage to support my very high arch. I have not worn them for super long periods of time yet but so far I love them.

This is the most uncomfortable shoe, in that the metal starfish rubs on your foot every time you walk. I wish I had saved the box so I could return them. They seemed alright at first but after I wore them a few times for longer periods my foot hurt so bad, I walked barefoot home from the metro.The shoe is really cute and the foot bed is very supportive that is why I gave it 4 stars, but the fact that the metal starfish rubs your foot raw ruins the whole shoe for me.

I bought this shoe because I've had trouble with plantar fasciitis, and needed a more supportive shoe for the summer. The styling and look of the shoe is great for an ortha. The quality is great for the price. My issue was comfort. The shoe is super-hard, esp. at first. My feet adjusted, but it caused painful contact with my bunion, where I've never had any pain, when worn for extensive time periods or for extensive walking. Keeping them for a cute and easy option for less strenuous days and outings, though.

I get so many compliments about this shoe. I love the looks and color of it. It was my second pair of Orthaheels (I also have a pair of the slippers) and like them my only complaint is that the sole could be not quit so hard maybe have a little more cushioning. I am used to shoes with lots of support and I also wear othodics. I just wish for a little less hardness.

Very comfortable. I wear an 8 but it runs long and need a size 7...not quite as much arch support as the other models. The sole is more flexible and thinner than usual.

Brands I'd also recommend: none ,this is the best

I have a lot of heel pain from a bone spur, and wear prescription orthotics in my closed shoes, but I love to live in flip flops for the summer so I thought I would give these a try. The pros, they make my heel pain stop while I am wearing them, they are cuter than an "orthotic" sandal usually is, the starfish decor on the top seems well made and securely attached. The cons, I have wide feet, so they cut in a little on the side of my feet, it's not terrible, but I would like them even better if they were a bit wider. The black strap across the top is not leather, and it has that "man-made" look. I think that leather would have a bit more give to it, and would improve the look of the sandal. Also, for spending this much on a flip flop, you would think that the strap would be a bit higher quality.

I've been wearing Orthaheel shoes for my plantar fasciitis since last year. They've helped immensely. I like this sandal; it's cute, and comfortable, although somewhat more narrow than my Orthaheel Wave sandals, which I love. I would recommend this shoe.
