I have planter fascitis and have searched to find heels that do not aggrivate my condition and still don't look like "old lady shoes." Well, these are it. They are comfortable right out of the box. They have a cushy foot bed, have a cupped heel that is hidden and arch support to soothe the aching foot. They are dressier than the picture suggests and look stylish.

Cute shoe but no way to adjust the width and I have a narrow foot so it just sloshed around in the shoe. But I liked the foot bed and arch support.

I have an ankle condition since 2010 that doesn't allow me to wear any kind of shoes except flat ones. The condition got worse because I have flat feet. Orthaheel is the only possible shoes I can wear and I'm glad you brought this style because is dressy. It looks nice with jeans and also with any kind of pants or skirts. Yesterday I had to walk a long distance and they felt comfortable . They have an excellent arch support and I recommend them.

Vionic shoes feel good on the legs and back. It was cute, and I wanted it to work. But the straps were just too loose, and it felt like my foot was sliding forward in the shoe.

These shoes have a terrific foot bed if you have high arches.They are not for people with narrow feet. Too bad, almost perfect. Back they go.

I am so Happy I discovered these shoes. I have had a painful foot problem for nearly 10 years and have not found ANY walking shoes that I could walk in for any length of time without severe pain. That is until VIONIC with Orthaheel Technology. Not only are they super comfortable for my high arch but they are really cute. They don't look like the other medical type shoes you see on the market. I plan on ordering these shoes in every color they offer!

These are great sandals and are very comfortable. A bit pricey, however, well worth the dollars spent. Sometimes you have to pay more to get a good quality shoe and thees are it.

Wonderful sandal. I am so happy that Vionic is now making a sandal with a small heel. Will go nice with shorts or a casual dress. The fit was perfect and very comfortable. This is the only brand of sandals that I have purchased in the last several years.

These looked pretty good on...out of the box, less so. Sadly, these don't come in half-sizes so I fear mine will have to go back. I really wear an 8.5 crazy wide...but usually can't find that so wear 9 W. I have a bunch of Vionics in 9/40. However, I slipped over the edge when walking and had a full size behind my heel. I'm gonna see if the shoeguy can do anything for them. That said, I like this brand a lot for some of the best arch support out there. I hope they will expand their line into more heels like this. For winter, I hope they can make flats or Mary Jane's that run wide. I've had to send all their shoes back because they were too narrow. Oh, and leather would be good for the shoes for breathability. Love Zappos.

After reading all the reviews about how great the Vionic shoes were for plantars fasciitis I was determined to get myself a couple pairs. Well, I've tried 3 different pair and each one has been sent back for various poor quality reasons. This pair I'm returning because the alignment of the studded part coming down to the criss crossed parts over the toe are way off center. That kept bugging me every time I looked down at my feet. Additionally they look and feel cheap even though I paid around a lot for them.

Brands I'd also recommend: Abeo, Dansko, Keen, Kuru,

Good looking shoe with the all important arch support etc by Vionic. I wore them to a wedding and found them to be very uncomfortable after walking around in them for a short while. The wedge heel causes your foot to slip forward and thus your toes hang over the end. The sole is rubber so dancing was uncomfortable too! They were expensive but I'm stuck with them. I live in Vionic sandals but this one is a dud.

DISAPPOINTED- I have several pairs of Vionic shoes and have loved every single one...until this purchase. I have significant arch issues and have undergone several foot surgeries to correct my pronated, flat foot. I was excited that Vionics designed a heeled shoe with an arch built in. Unfortunately, my foot tends to slip forward in these causing the arch to not support my foot as intended. I think this is a bit of a design flaw as the built in arch causes the foot to slide forward or maybe it is because the shoes are made a a little too wide. I would not purchase without trying on and walking around a bit first. I did not realize the problem until I wore them out of the house- therefore, I am stuck with them.

Brands I'd also recommend: Naot, Dr. Weil, Orthaheel

Really wanted a cute shoe. Obviously I have bad feet or wouldn't be buying this brand. I have worn them twice and got a blister both times. Won't wear them again. They were a complete waste of money.
