Vionic w/ Orthaheel Ryder Men's Orthotic Thong Sandals
Perfect for flat feet
I bought these in black for my husband who has very wide, flat feet. He says these sandals are very comfortable and his feet don't ache as much as before the purchase. Thank you Orthaheel!
I ordered these for myself and my daughter. She LOVES hers, my pair (brown) are so uncomfortable I can't wear them and will return them. It's not the arch support, it's the toe divider! the left foot is totally comfortable. The right foot feels like a scratchy piece of wood between my toes! Doubt that I will re-order.
These flip flops are very uncomfortable. It is like trying to walk on a ball. The stitching on the straps is very irritating. They look good but feel terrible. As someone who never has foot problems I think the flat flip flops are much better
Good for Women with wide feet
I wear a ladies 8 - 8 1/2 W and took a chance these would work for me. I love the orthoheels for ladies that adjust but the ladies version of the classic "flip flop" does not adjust. Received last night and by sizing down to a 7 the men's shoe worked perfectly! I suffer from plantar facitiis occassionally and never by shoes without proper support, Clarks are my go to brand for work. Really excited as I have not been able to wear a flip flop in years! The nice thing about these is they are also perfect for pedicure trips!
My suggestion to orthoheel is make the same shoe for ladies in fashion colors, keep the adjustable velcro on the side and bling it up!
Great Product after getting the adjustment correct
It is a great shoe. The only issue I had was getting the strap properly adjusted. Hint do not make it too tight. Enjoying having a sandal I can walk a lot in without heel and leg pains. Highly recommend.
It took a day or two to get my feet accustomed to the shoe, but now they are great. I've always had arch problems and flip flops have always been too flat. This is a wonderful alternative. I wish there were more men's styles. I'd definitely buy more. They are true to size.
Orthaheel is wonderful. please bring in larger men"s sizes and more styles.
MY HUSBAND LOVE, LOVE, LOVES THESE!
GOT THESE FOR HIS BIRTHDAY AND ON EASY PAY IN THE BROWN, WHICH IS LIKE AN ESPRESSO BROWN - BEAUTIFUL. HE PICKED UP THE PACKAGE FROM THE PO AND HE COULDN'T WAIT TO OPEN THEM. HE CALLED ME WHILE I WAS DRIVING BACK FROM WORK TO TELL ME HOW COMFORTABLE AND HOW MUCH HE LOVES THESE SANDALS! THAT WAS OVER 2 WKS AGO - THIS MORNING AFTER GETTING OUT OF BED HE PUT THEM ON AND SAID HOW MUCH HE LOVES THESE SANDALS AND HOW HE THINKS THEY HAVE HELPED HIS KNEE!
Relief for Plantar Fasciitis
My husband suffers from plantar fasciitis. I bought these for him because he loves flip-flops and he can't wear his inserts with them. He would still wear regular flip-flops but then complain about foot pain. I bought him these and he loved them but said he was going to save them for dressier moments. I came home & he was doing drywall in them, they had drywall compound all over them. I said "I thought you were going to save these for dressier occasions?", he said he knew that but they are just so comfortable he couldn't help himself. I told him I would order him another pair. My husband hates spending money so if he is willing to let me buy him 2 pairs of these, I know they have to feel great to him. (I also have a pair of the ladies & love them. I don't have foot pain but want to keep it that way)
Excellent, Wonderful, Awesome!!!
These are the most comfortable sandals ever! They take a little bit of getting used to (read the directions). Once your feet adjust, you will not want to wear any other sandals. I have other (more expensive) sandals that, now, just feel flat and unsupportive. I live in "flip flops" and these are, with out a doubt, the most comfortable "shoes" I own. Just try them and give them a chance. You will not be disappointed.
Ordered a pair of these for my hubby. He's been experiencing heel pain with maybe some plantar fascitis. He LOVED them. He is not a sandal kind of guy, but he puts these on when he gets home from work and doesn't take them off! He says it is now hard for him to wear any other shoes as these feel so good on his feet!
Husband loves them!! :)
My husband has pain issues in his knees and hips. I bought these for him in his normal size 12 in the chocolate. He felt the difference the first time he put them on. Yes, they feel a little odd at first (I tried them on, too) because the arch support and form of the sandal puts you into a different alignment. But my husband said that wearing them helps to ease the pain he's been feeling in his joints, which is a wonderful thing! I'd recommend them. I think I'll buy the women's version for me. :)
