Vionic w/Orthaheel Men's Orthotic Thong Sandals - Ryder
Not True to Size
Too short. I normally wear 11m to 11.5m in any brand. My heel hangs off the edge by good 1-2 inches. Do not recommend without trying in the store.
Perfect fit out of the box!
This is my husbands second pair of Orthoheel sandals, replacing an older pair. He said the new pair was just as comfy as his old pair. There has never been a need for him to have a break-in period. . I'm pretty sure he tossed all of his big box store sandals, as he appreciates the arch support of theses sandals, that other sandals do not provide. My husband usually wears a 9 1/2 to 10...he ordered a 10 and they fit perfectly.
I bought these for my husband in both black and brown. He loves them and they are all he wears. We live in Southern California so he wears them every day. After 3 years of daily wear I am back to replace his worn out brown pair at his request. He wears 11 to 11-1/2 and the size 11 fits him perfectly.
The part that fits between the toes caused an irritated sore spot within moments of the shoe being worn. Unable to keep it on for more than a few minutes. Will be returning.
Husband loves these sandals
My husband loves his Ortho thong sandals!! He has them in both brown and black!
He would love it if the Vionic Ortho heel company would make more colors for men!
Maybe like Navy, Grey, or dark forest green! Brown and black are great colors, but
those colors get a little boring at time.
MY HUSBAND LOVES THIS SANDLE BUT YOU HAVE NOT HAD SIZE 12 IN STOCK FOR AWHILE. PLEASE GET IN SOME SIZE 12 MY HUSBAND WOULD LIKE ANOTHER PAIR.
Love These Sandals!
I own the black pair so much that I decided to get the chocolate pair!! I love the feel and comfort of these sandals. I can wear them literally all day and not feel any discomfort. Wish this brand could offer more options for men as well as easy pay!! Please more men's shoes.
Great if you don't need a size 12
This is my husbands second pair of these and he wears them all summer long. He still has the first pair I bought him 4 years ago and they r starting to look less than new on top so I bought him a second pair for nice occasions. I would have gave them 5 stars if they sold a size 12 but they don't? 13's were to big and 11's barely fit so would love to see size 12's added in the future. They do take a while to get used to the arch support and it took him wearing them for a few weeks to decide that they were great and the support was just what he needed.
This was a birthday present and i have to tell you that the first couple of days you feel the arch support kind of uncomfortable,BUT after that; O M G !!!! the best thong sandals EVER!!! Mine were order as a size 10 and they fit perfectly.
Love this product even is my first time trying this brand. Happy Camper here!!!!
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
