I've been having issues with my right ankle lately, seen a Podiatrist and attended physical therapy for a month and I still have occasional pain. I am 43 years old, an active mother of 2. I'm an athlete and work out every day, struggling with my ankle pain. Read about Orthaheel shoes but have never bought it. When I tried this Amelia Wedge on today, I can immediately feel the difference between these shoes and the rest of my other shoes. The arch support is wonderful and my feet feel very comfortable and rested on it. I have it on for a few hours in the house to try it out and so far, it feels great and not exhaustive on my legs. I see a big difference in the alignment of my ankle when I put these shoes on. It is aligned better, of course. Very happy with it and I'm looking forward to try it on for longer hours. Hoping the there will be more options with heels in the near future.

These are really uncomfortable across the instep. The cut of the front digs in. I have narrow feet but they still are too painful. That is disappointing. I will try other Orthaheel style instead.

I have a narrow foot so being narrow was a plus. If you work on concrete and/or have foot problems, you need this shoe. I have it in brown and black.

I love these shoes! They fit well, they are comfortable, and they are stylish. They accommodate my custom orthotics well. I got these shoes in both black and brown. I would recommend this brand if you have custom orthotics. They are also very comfortable and supportive with the inserts they come with.

Order a size larger than you normally wear. I buy size 7 sandals in Orthaheel and they fit perfect. Closed-toes seem to run a full size too small! Am definitely returning!

NICE SHOE! I would've kept them, but they are really narrow. I can wear many 'med' but often take wides. I just discovered the Orthaheel brand this past summer & loved wearing their sandals all summer... getting winter shoes however is more difficult. They have different solebeds I've discovered, & some aren't nearly as good for me as the formed one (vs. insert ones) - this felt good in arch area even tho an insert, but to narrow for me.

I'm a 60+ professional with plantar fasciitis. These shoes deliver in every way. I am able to walk without pain for the first time in months. The strong arch support is perfect for my needs. The cushioned area under the front toe has support for the ball of the foot. The strap solves my problem of a narrow heel combined with a medium toe width. They are very well made and have a classic look, good for all occasions. I'm in the process of ordering a 2nd pair.

I am so happy to have a shoe that looks fashionable enough to wear to work and doesn't scream "ortho" support! The arch support is very pronounced and the first few minutes I am wearing it, I am very aware of how the "bump" pushes against my arch, but after a few minutes my feet relax into the shoe. It is very comfortable to wear all day, including walking to and from the office and standing on public transportation.

This shoe runs true to your normal size, not like the sandals. Love the shoe, waiting for the right size to come and can't wait to wear it. Very stylish compared to regular orthopedic shoes.

I have a narrow foot and very high arches...love Orthaheel sandals. This is my first pair of another style of Orthaheel and they are great. Wore them inside the house for a few weeks to determine fit and then ventured into regular wear. Wow! They are comfortable. True to size with great arch support; do feel like a more narrow fitting shoe (that could be the Mary Jane strap).

I searched high and low for comfortable shoes. I have very bad feet, collapsed long arch and arch between my big toe and other 4 toes (yes, we have two arches in our feet). I am a physical therapist as well and finally, found shoes that do not look like orthopedic shoes that are supportive and stylish. I have custom orthotics but they don't fit in all shoes and are not nearly as comfortable as the Orthaheel shoes! Face it, women want it all....style, support and comfort! I bought these in black and just ordered the chocolate. I hope Orthaheel puts out more modern styles. I also finally am able to wear flip flops from Orthaheel that are supportive and stylish as well!

I never thought I would ever be able to wear any kind of heel again! These are just as comfortable as a pair of flats...actually more comfortable than most! Wonderful arch and heel support!

I love these shoes! I'm a classroom teacher, and My knees, hips, and ankles feel so much better when I wear these, even compared to my other Walking Company pairs of shoes. The inside is super soft and comfy. Looks cute with skirts and tights, too!

Why is a true dark brown shoe so hard to find? This shoe is a good color, and a good shape - pretty casual, but nice enough to wear with a dress. It's a little on the narrow side. Also, the arch is super-high. I don't have low arches, but the arch on this shoe is so high that it actually hurt to wear. I ended up taking out the insole and shaving away some of the arch with a razor. I think it will work now.

These are so adorable I was really disappointed when they turned out to be super uncomfortable. The insole made the arch so high that my foot barely fit into the shoe! Yet I had the correct size. And when I removed the insole the shoes then had no arch support (the important thing I wanted!) and was uncomfortable in another way. I sadly had to return these.

I have never had a B width of shoe be too narrow for me - not until I tried on these shoes. They absolutely squeezed my feet to the point of pain. I have other Orthaheel shoes and have not experienced that. Too bad because I would like some heels with great arch support.

I love Orthaheel shoes, but these were not comfortable for my foot due to their narrow toe. I have protruding bunion bones (which cause me pain if I do not have correct arch support). These shoes provide good arch support, but are very narrow in the toe (and I have a narrow foot in general), thus pinching the bunion. I wore them for an hour or so in the house thinking they might stretch with a foot in them. No. I was glad to finally take them off and my bunion bones were red. I tried them in the next size up to see if that was the problem, and while that seemed to help the pinched bunion, the shoe in general was clearly to large. I'm sorry to report that these are not going to work for me. :(

Not only do these run small, but the sides rubbed my low ankles. Cute enough, though.

The shoe cut into the top of my foot just below my big toe. It was extremely painful and I do not think that it would lessen it time. My foot also still slipped even though I tightened the strap all the way. Had it not been for these issues, I would have kept the shoe. The height was good and my toes all fit well in the shoe.

Loved the looks of this shoe! So cute! But I had to return it because it was too tight! And I have narrow feet. Too bad because it is nice looking.

Cute shoes but cut the top of my foot across the big toe! I wish Orthaheel would make shoes in wider widths! Most of their styles in wide width look matronly. If they made stylish shoes in wide, I would buy every pair!
