Vionic w/ Orthaheel Zoe Orthotic Double Gore Slip-on Shoes
Faux Leather just does not hold up
I love the Vionic shoes and have several pair but I was really disappointed in this pair. I am by no means rough on my shoes, I have other well known name brands some of which QVC sells that I have had forever and they still look pretty much like new. This pair just does not hold up to even occasional wearing. The cap over the toe just looks a mess with the vinyl peeling off at the edges. Really disappointed, for the price I paid for these shoes I would have expected them to hold up a lot better. I know they try not to use real leather so that those who are opposed to it can also buy this brand, but it seems to me if you have built good quality shoes inside, you should be using good quality materials outside as well.
Love the shoes - very comfortable especially when on your feet all day long. The shoe is only about 1 month old and all ready looks beat and worn -the blue coloring has cracked in spots and peeling-this should not happen to a shoe this quickly-disappointed in manufacturing.
Why do they look worn out so quickly????
First I have to say Vionic are the most comfortable shoes I have EVER worn. I have 7 pair. This is the second pair of Zoe I have purchased for my work shoes. The problem is it has only been 6 months since I got them and the top of the shoe is cracking. So in the future I will purchase vionic inserts but not the shoe. A hundred dollar shoe needs to last more than 6 months.
Zoe' are great
I have had mine through the winter. Very comfortable to the point that I can use them on the treadmil. Thank you QVC for the Vionic brand, the easy pay, and free shipping on these great shoes.
I kept these, even though they aren't that comfortable for long days. But, now the color is peeling off. Very disappointing for the price and hype.
Comfortable but color peels off quickly
Upon arrival looks like a quality shoe to reflect the higher price. However, after only a few weeks, the color on the surface (looks like leather but really is a type of plastic covering) started peeling off in patches to reveal a white fabric lining. So sad because these shoes are SUPER comfortable!! Vionic, please make the same shoe with a leather, or at least more durable, covering on the upper portion of the shoe.
Best walking shoe, EVER!!!
These shoes may not look great but are the BEST walking shoes EVER!!! Hobbled through Europe in my $125. Walking athletic shoes. One day I wore an outfit that the athletic shoes didn't quite cut it. I put these shoes on and went out. My friends commented on I had a "spring in my step today", "you've really picked up the pace", and after walking for five hours up and down hills they couldn't believe, or could I, my feet were still ready to keep going. These shoes were worn every day for nine weeks. I have all colors and love them all.
Love the fit, but hate how quickly it wears out
I bought these a few months ago and have worn them pretty much everyday. Within two weeks the edges near the seams were wearing off and they now look ten years old. I do love the way the Orthaheel products makes me feel, but didn't think these were worth the price I paid. I also bought another pair and am wearing those now, if the upper wears out as quickly as these did, I will definitely not purchase their products again. Maybe the company needs to concentrate on the upper now that they have figured out the rest of the shoe.
another great buy
I love these orthaheel shoes. Better than my orthotics. My poditrist loves them too. Good fit. This is my fifth purchase. Finally real shoes.
Have purchased last year...wore them out! Bought again...waterproof, comfy, durable. Wonderful for a Michigan winter!
Great - Butttt That Silly EU Sizing!!!
Nice shoes and great support, buttttttt, that silly EU sizing doesn't fit me at all. Much too narrow. I wear a 9M and got a 40. They were SO narrow, I actually became slightly dizzy while I was trying to adjust to them. Iffff you can wear EU sizing, I think you'd enjoy then. Back they go!!
Not Good For Me
I didn't like these shoes at all. I got the navy and they looked like plastic. I bought my regular size and they were too short and very narrow. I was not satisfied with them at all so I sent them back.
