Vionic w/ Orthaheel Ryder Men's Orthotic Thong Sandals
Very uncomfortable and likely bad for your feet.
Was excited about the idea of better foot support, but now I realize it was for no reason. The sandals are very well made, and I can get used to the strap inbetween the toes. But the arch support is just silly and its not good for your foot. Your foot has pads on the ball and heel for a reason, and it feels like I'm using the middle of my foot to walk.
The issue with sandals is that they have no sides, like shoes, so your foot tends to rotate, so all they had to do was create a shallow wall around the sandal or they could have used must softer material in the center arch. It's like walking on a ball. Very uncomfortable and unnatural.
I have normal feet by the way. I would not recommend this as a gift as they are very strange and gimmicky, and the person will either love them or through them away.
Going back for this price.
My Husband Loves Them!
I bought my husband his first pair of Vionic's while in Kauai. He has flat feet and poor arches and these sandals made his feet feel so much better and his arches no longer hurt. After 34 years of marriage, I have converted him to sandals! He loves these sandals!
Husband LOVED them. Rare experience.
My husband has issues with ingrown toenails in spite of on going medical care. Shoes off flip flops on. When U saw the army dear for men, I thought he would like them. The colors are great . He had no break in time and sized down as he is a half size. Fit perfect. Hasn't taken them off except for yard work, ladders ect. They clean well damp paper towel. No odor at all like when he wears leather dress shoes. He is in 7th heaven with this brand. A little pricey, and if they hold up, worth the price of comfort. I made him watch the video. It should be kept on line as it was very educatational, and necessary for correct sizing . Go down to next full size if you are a half size. That why important to keep video up. Highly recommend for someone who likes flip flops but you tend to fall. These stay on his feet like regular shoes. Maybe see men's loafers in the future, or semi dress shoe for those who walk on hard floor surfaces all day. CS said they want you to seen them worn, & if they don't like can return worn. Excellent purchase, you have nothing to lose.m
Good fitting...nice looking!
I purchased these for my husband as a last resort. His feet have been bothering him and with our upcoming vacation I had to find something he could do a lot of walking in. He's only worn them for a short time but his feet feel better already. I didn't recommend them for a gift since I would never buy anyone a pair of sandals for a gift.
Purchased for hubby.He likes them except 4 toe post.Its stiff&uncomfortable.Time will fix that.First pair size9 was sent back-2small. He normally wears size 9.5. Size 10 fits great. He says feels good on heel&arch
Great for the price
I purchased these sandals for my husband. Noticeable improvement in his posture. The only complaint from him is the thong part is not particularly comfortable, could use extra padding.
These are my second pair, first pair is going on 3 years old and are still holding up. Lovr theway they feel and support.
From the time I received these I have worn them daily and my foot is no longer angled outward; the pain is gone.
These shoes are probably the most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever worn! They are made good and have non-slip tread and foot bed. Would highly recommend these shoes for anyone even very active wearers. AAA+++
Grandson loves them!
I bought these for my grandson who usually wears a size 12. 12 was sold out so I took a chance on 13. To our surprise they fit well. This sandal is running almost 2 sizes short.
Ordered these for my husband who is a size 9 in shoes and sneakers and it fit like a glove. He has problems with his feet especially the arch support and these flip flops are the best purchse ever. The price for the comfort is amazing. It's difficult to get him good fiting and comfortable sandals for the summer and he loved this one. Thank you.
Signed Happy Feet :)
He Loves them
My husband had been complaining about heal pain. So I thought I'd buy these sandals to give his feet more support. And he loves them, very comfortable and look good.
