A221670 - Orthaheel Louisa Orthotic Leather Sandals w/ Back Strap
Comfortable sandals which are adjustable due to velcro. Worked very well for my feet with bunions. Buckle on heel strap broke after a couple months. Paid $30 to shoe repair shop to replace both buckles so they match. Metal buckle failed - snapped in half. Velcro closure would have worked better as previous reviewer mentioned. Expensive shoes to have a buckle fail.
Best sandals ever
I tried these shoes on the minute they arrived and couldn't believe how comfortable they felt. Loved the way they fit my arch. Wore them in Las Vegas for two days and never had a problem with them. I did switch to another pair of sandals one evening and by the end of the evening my feet were hurting. Came home and went to order another pair but found that there was only one color and one size left. Do hope when he returns at the end of the month, that he will bring back more of this particular style. I do have a narrow foot and couldn't believe how well it fit my arch, but wish they would add a couple of extra holes as I am using the shortest hole now and if they stretch there is no room to make an extra hole. Otherwise, the first time I have ever bought a shoe that didn't need breaking in. So glad I tuned in the last time he was on.
Got these sandals last week in black suede. Right out of the box they felt great. I really like them and recommend them to everyone. I especially love the metal medallions on the top, makes them look very upscale. I thought the back strap would be bothersome, but I don't need to open it at all to get the sandals on and off. I just use the velcro at the instep to put on and off. You are able to tighten or loosen them as needed. SO glad I bought them. I do think they were a bit pricey, but again if you have trouble with your feet, you will pay anything to make those feet feel great. I recommend highly.
4 Stars but.....
I'm giving this sandal 4 stars for comfort. I love the way they feel. I have other Orthaheels, and I hope these wear better than the others I have, because these are leather. The comfort of this brand is amazing. I just wish the quality matched the comfort!
For the price of Orthaheel shoes, the quality isn't usually there. I also found the top of this sandal leans in, instead of going down the middle of my foot. That said, I am thoroughly pleased with the comfort.
First I must say that I like the Orthaheel brand so much that I now have many pairs of them in all the kinds available, wearing one pair or another from the time I step out of bed in the morning straight through to the time I go to bed at night, and have given most of my other shoes away. This style is one of my favorites. I have these shoes in Navy, which is a great shade of navy. I love them. Size 6 fits my 6-6 1/2 M size foot perfectly without pinching or slipping around at all. Their soles are a bit heavier than my other Orthaheels, which I noticed upon taking them out of the box, but it doesn't get in the way of their comfort. These shoes are most versatile. Though I wouldn't wear them to the beach, because they are classy, but not overdone, they look good with dressier outfits, but also dress up jeans. I would buy another of these if they came in white, gold, or red.
Where's the sizes?
I have a narrower foot and wanted to order these based on the review of the narrow footed person (I already tried a few others but had to send them back because they were not really adjustable) but you only have sizes 8 and up. Hopefully you are getting more????
Such Great Comfort/Support
I started with the Yasmin Orthaheel which was a TSV and loved it so much I thought I'd try these. I now have them in all 3 colors and wear them exclusively. I added the all-leather walking shoes and I love those also. I'm waiting to get the ortha inserts to see if I can make my Clark's shoes have the same support and comfort. I am a very tipsy walker because of a bad back. These help me be more balanced and I can walk further than before I got them. Try them and see if they work for you.
I found this shoe to be extremely comfortable. I have very small, narrow feet and the size 5 fits perfectly. I usually wear a 5.5 or 6.00. The arch support is heaven. And they look great on my feet. I have received a number of compliments on them.
Broken Buckle after ONLY 3 Weeks
I really liked these sandals until the buckle broke in half while I was wearing them during a presentation in front of a large group of clients. Embarrassing to have the shoe flopping with the strap hanging out, also dangerous for tripping. I returned shoes. Now, I am skeptical to order them again. Would have preferred velcro closure instead of flimsy buckle. Please redesign and fix this issue.
Glad I purchased these.
Wow!! Where have these shoes been all my life?? Fantastic, my feet love them! Shopped 4 hrs the first day I wore them and they felt great no break in time at all. Got them in navy
look cute with jeans.
I have several pairs of the Orthaheel flip-flops plus the Orthaheel Orthotic Inserts and I won't wear anything else anymore. Had been using Orthopedic Inserts from a Specialist for fallen arches for quite a few years that are very expensive ... even with insurance coverage. I put off buying this pair of shoes for quite a while because I was concerned that the leather would be stiff and uncomfortable ... like most leather nowadays. I wanted a sling-back shoe to keep on my feet when I go on a trip this summer which will require a lot of walking. Well ... I don't know what I was hesitant for because this pair of shoes is absolutely amazing. Not only does it take the pressure off of my feet and lower back ... but the leather is VERY soft and supple ... and sooo comfortable that they are ready to go on my trip with no break-in needed. Don't hesitate to buy this fabulous pair of shoes. They are as cute and comfy as they come!!
I bought these shoes in black and they are so cute!! They don't look like an orthotic shoe at all, and they are very comfortable. My feet pronate and these shoes keep that from being so severe. So now I have less knee pain. I love these shoes and also bought the orthaheel flip flops. I've never had such comfortable flip flops.
