Vionic w/ Orthaheel Zoe Orthotic Double Gore Slip-on Shoes
Lasted less than a year
I agree with other reviewers that this shoe is too expensive for non-leather. I always wore leather only but decided to try this shoe. Because they were so comfortable and made me feel very stable ( I have really bad knees ) I wore these very frequently. They now look shabby after 11 months and even though I want another pair, I would like to see these at a more realistic price. I am retired so it's not like I was running around all day in them. I usually don't wear my shoes out. I was pleasantly surprised when one friend said they were cute!
I bought these shoes for work as I can not wear sandals or open backed shoes. They have a nice arch support but that's all. The finish is peeling off and they do not have the awesome orthaheel footbed I know, love and need.My feet were killing me by the middle of the day. Maybe the orthaheel people should figure out how to incorporate their good footbed into real shoes before they continue making inferior ones.
These shoes saved me
I put on these shoes and knew immediately that it was something I never experienced. I have bad knees and I have tried all of the top name shoes and hiking shoes and sport shoes, etc etc. You name it I have it. I have also bought other Orthaheels that I was sorry I purchased. My in-step is high and the shoes don't take that into account on the top of the shoe so that in 1 hour I am in excruciating pain. HOWEVER, this particular shoe is AMAZING. I need knees replaced. I am fairly young and I walk like I am 101 yrs old. I put these on and my husband, who never notices anything, commented. "What is different? I haven't seen you walk so well in such a long time. Wow!!" It supported my arch properly and aligned my ankles to my knees to my hips. I have worn these every single day for 1 year and they are still going strong. There definitely is some wear and I am back for my second pair. These shoes gave me a new lease on life. I never believed I could hike the Grand Canyon on my vacation last year--brought tears to my eyes.
This shoe is really painful to wear. The arch support is raised in the wrong spot. The shoes, although rarely worn, have lost color on the toe. When I do wear them, I have to swap the insole with my Orthaheel athletic shoes. I only wear Orthaheel now and love especially the Molly, but these are terrible.
Can't recommend these
Love the ortho heel idea. Can wear them right out of the box. Unfortunately as others have noted they do not wear well over even a short period of time. After 6 months of intermittent use the outside material is cheap and chips off. For the price of the shoe it should be made with leather. I would like to purchase a second pair but will not until they are made with a better material meant for shoes.
not what i was expecting
I ordered true to size about 6 months ago, they were a very tight fit, not much wiggle room for toes and my feet still cant get used to them.waste of money in my opinion.
Best Motorcycle Shoes
I love wearing these when riding the motorcycle. They are lightweight but still offer protection. Ordering a second pair.
I have horrible feet...... nothing worked... until I found orthaheel. these shoes are my comfort and allow me to walk for miles and not have any foot pain!!!!!
They are extremely comfortable. I've been wearing them during fall and winter for 2 years they are wonderful.
I love the fit and style of this shoe however the finish is wearing off around the stitching and wear points. This is after four months of wear. I feel that they should last much longer.
started out in love with these shoes!
My husband watches QVC when he can't sleep and he saw these shoes. I have a very bad back as a result of a serious motor vehicle accident. I also have permanent nerve damage causing neuropathy. I ordered my first pair-loved them! Almost immediately ordered a second pair. I didn't realize they weren't leather. They are not wearing well and they cause my feet to sweat, resulting in the stinkiest feet ever. I can't believe that for 100.00 shoes they aren't leather. I think QVC needs to review items more closely before making them available for purchase. Durability is a must when purchasing shoes, especially if paying over 100.00, once s & h are added. I would rate 5+ stars for comfort but 1 for quality.
didnt last very long
I bought these and only got a few months out of them (NOTE I did not even wear these close to every day) they were good in the beginning but not too long after that
