Vionic w/ Orthaheel Gemma Orthotic Slippers w/ Adj. Strap
Love These Slippers
Since I love my orthaheel inserts so much I purchased me a pair of these slippers. Wow what a difference! My feet feel great even when lounging around the house.
I purchased these slippers OVER a year ago. They've been washed 3-4 times now and have stood up my normal wear. Very comfortable as ALL my other Orthaheel's The adjustable strap is great cuz in the winter I like to wear socks. I' d like to buy another pair but as I said they have stood up thru my one year of wear.
firm support that I love from Orthaheel
I wear an 8 or 8.5 in other shoes. For me the size 8 in this slipper is the correct size. I believe I wear 8.5 in the Orthaheel sports shoe that I love, and in the sandals, I wear an 8.
Don't expect a soft, super-plushy feel. These don't offer that. They offer support.
These provide the support that I need for my "rolling over to the inside" foot. It probably is not great for everyone, but is an absolute treasure for me. My mom has tried the Orthaheel slippers and tennis-type shoes and for her the arch support is too firm and high. For me, perfection! My feet don't hurt anymore from walking on the hardwood and other floors in my home. :) They used to hurt everyday, before I started wearing Orthaheel slippers. This is my third pair! Love!
I'm thrilled that QVC brings these to us!!!!
I purchased these as I am a stay at home mom and often have heal pain walking around the house bare foot. They have an extremely hard base, but once I got over that fact I realized how comfortable they are and wear them every day. They have greatly helped out with the heal pain I experienced. My only problem with them is because the base is so firm, they almost feel like real shoes and I have left the house a few times wearing them. But despite that fact, I do recommend them to others.
These slippers are awful. I asked for these as a Christmas gift and unfortunately I got them. The foot bed is so hard my feet started to hurt after wearing them for 5 minutes. I was so disappointed because I had been wanting these for so long. I don't understand how anyone could like these things. This was my first Orthaheel shoe and it will be my last. Thank goodness for Q's holiday return policy.
These had to be returned
I have a hard time standing without having pain in my left heel. I purchased these as TSV and after about a couple of weeks the inside started tearing up. Especially around the toes. The slipper did allow me to stand for long periods of time without any heel pain. I was happy about that but the way the slipper is made on the inside lining is poor. I wish the manufacturer would make them a little better on the inside. Eventually the inside lining tore all the way and when my feet would sweat the slipper started to stink. I had to throw them away. At this cost I just feel they need to be made with a better lining on the inside.
I ordered these for my elderly mother who has "foot issues" as a gift and when I received them, I thought they were beautiful and very well made. However, she has a narrow foot and even tho there's a velcro adjusting strap, there's not a ton of adjusting available. I then saw that there was yet a different style by Orthaheel that had more adjustment potential so I placed yet another order for those.
Mom is extremely picky and as these are a gift for Christmas, I have to wait until then to get her feedback.
Not for everyone
Definitely not for everyone. I have foot problems w/arch issues & arthritis. Tried so hard to like these but they are so hard; not cushy at all. Although I do need arch support, the arch in this shoe is almost too much. I never have been able to be comfortable in them. When I slip them on they hurt my feet. Fair warning...
Sweet For Someone With Planter Phasities!
I don't understand the complaints about these slippers. I own three pair, none have ripples in the footbed or torn in anyway. Infact, last year's pair I wear outside and they get abused. They still have no signs of coming apart. I throw those in the wash. Anyway, they are a wonderful slipper, and Ihope to see them confined being carried at the Q.
They hurt my toes sending back will try another style
I bought these slippers because I needed support around the house. They are beyond comfortable, but only after 2 weeks of wear the lining in my right slipper started coming up and bunching in the shoe. I have to push it flat every time and it makes me upset because these are pricy, which I don't mind paying if they feel good on my feet. Please check the quality on the inner lining Orthaheel! You have a fabulous product minus that!
Love this Slippers
bought these slippers while on vacation....was able to verify my size which is my true size 8M fit fine....I love these slippers, however, I agree with another Review....same thing happened to me....the toe box started to come undone which resulted in a hole on top of my right slipper....also the heal area is starting to wear thru....and I haven't even had these slippers for a year yet! And, I'm not hard on shoes....I really love the fit of these slippers and their shoes in general....debating whether to buy another pair or not....coming down on yes....Orthaheel....please address the issues with this slippers...I do love your shoes but I'm not going to keep throwing money away every year on a new pair.....Would have given you 5 Stars but only 4 due to above issues.
