I am so excited about this shoe! I love Orthaheel and have been waiting anxiously for a streamline sneaker that is both functional and fashionable. Orthaheel has hit the nail on the head with the Dr. Weil Orthaheel Rhythm Walker! I was pleasantly surprised that the dark grey has a purple hue; this is a great shoe with a feminine touch. The shoe feels orthopedic but doesn't look it!

Wanted these to work and seemed perfect for my narrow, high arched feet. Tried to wear them for 3 days and they caused pain after each wearing. They seem cheap...I should not have to break in a pair of walking shoes at this price. Dr. Weil needs to skip the Zen stuff and make some quality shoes.

Nice looking shoes, not as bulky as the walker. Unlike other Ultraheel shoes, these can be ordered in 1/2 sizes. I ordered my normal size, but they were very tight both in length and width. They didn't have as much arch support as the walkers, so I didn't order a size bigger. The arch support in these is equal to the Mary Janes, which isn't enough for my plantar fasciitis.

I ordered the shoe because I liked the combination of the mesh style and good arch support. However, it was too narrow and didn't have enough room for my toes and high arch. The regular Orthaheel Walker athletic shoe is too bulky in the toe area and this particular shoe is too narrow for me. I wish there was something in the middle.

This shoe was a half size smaller than the Orthheel sandals. There was no way to add a pair of sock, even thin ones.

I'd also recommend: Birkenstock

I get compliments on these all the time! They have the most arch support of any sneaker I've ever worn. I'm on my feet for my job and walk around a lot. My knees don't bother me anymore and I believe what Dr. Weil has done; aligned the foot in it's proper position. I'm a Physical Therapist and know how important this is. So, if you over-pronate (your ankles fall in), I recommend trying this shoe. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose, especially since shipping is free! Thanks, Zappos! That's what keeps me coming back for more.

I'd also recommend: Same brand, but in their flip flops!
