Rated 5 out of 5 by JennyP Ombré Wears Off, But Still Comfy!
Yes, I had the same problem as another reviewer - the ombré faded. Yes, I have "toe outlines" in the foot bed, but who can tell when they are on your feet? HOWEVER, they are SUPER comfy!!! I have high arches, so flip-flops or sandals usually kill my feet & lower back. Not these!! Have worn them to the beach, all day site seeing, shopping, etc. They do require some "breaking in" but that process was fairly quick. I have lived in these this summer. Will buy more, just maybe not the ombré.
Rated 3 out of 5 by vuvalex11 Ombre' wears off - A "FAIL" for Vionic design
I love the Vionic Orthotic Thong flip flops... in fact I own at least 6 pair, and LIVE IN THEM all summer and most of the spring and fall; I have 'em in the snake, sequin, and several colors of the leather mesh thongs....but these "ombre'" thongs, with the lighter color on the footbed is a "FAIL".
The Ombre' is just 'painted' onto the rubber on the front end of the shoe: not up to par with the quality I expect for a $60+ pair of flip flops... since I got these on sale, it's not entirely troublesome, but still...
The lighter end of the painted surface has worn off after only about 6-8 weeks, and I can see an imprint of my foot and toes where the shoe has a bit of give and movement; around toe area. I do alternate my Vionic's almost daily, but they should really still maintain the design after such a short time.
Perhaps if Vionic manufactured these Ombre' style thongs with a color infused rubber father than the cheap and easy sprayed on color?
As an aside, I have had extremely severe injuries
(shatters, breaks and fractures to both ankles, knees, hips, left tibia and spine)
from a head on car accident, and the Vionic Orthotic Thongs are the ONLY flip flops I can wear and remain pain free, not just daily, but day in and day out!
(in fact, I am just about to order a pair of the Vionic slippers and also their shoe inserts so I can again enjoy my collection of vintage Chuck Taylor's!)
Rated 5 out of 5 by allyson The best house slippers!
I work from home and prefer to have some sort of footwear on at all times with my wood floors, these are perfect! I've been wearing Vionic shoes almost exclusively for a couple of years and these help me when I'm cooking or baking because they absorb shock to protect joints. I used to have knee pain and heel pain every day, but Vionics have practically eradicated that. These ones in particular have a plastic, slightly cushy base, so I like that they are easy to clean and cradle the foot really nicely.
Rated 5 out of 5 by cindylouwho Flip Flops that feel great!
I have bunions and feet that hurt because I've always loved flip flops to wear. They have taken a toll on my feet. I decided to try these, (I have a pair of slippers by Vionic) to see if there is really a difference. They are fabulous! It takes a bit of time to get used to them. I wear them for short periods. My feet feel so much better. Highly recommend if you have problem feet and if your feet are young and perfect, wear these they will help keep your feet happy!
Rated 5 out of 5 by caligirl_714 Love Them!
I'm an athletic shoe girl but I've worn mine walking 6+ miles through Disneyland several times. They can get wet are not slippery on the bottom and are so comfortable! Never thought I'd like a pair of flip flops this much. Will be trying other styles!
Rated 5 out of 5 by retired10 perfect sandals
These are my 7th pair of the ortho heel sandals. I absolutely love them! My feet don't hurt and I have no back pain while wearing them. My latest pair is in the teal, great color! I highly recommend this product for all!!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Marobe Not like Orthaheel
I ordered these sandals because I own two pair of Orthaheel sandals and love them and thought that Vionic is made by the same company and approved by Dr. Weil. However, these are too "floppy," and do not fit as snugly as I expected them to. I was afraid of walking out of them. There is no way to adjust them, so I returned them and will stick with the Orthaheel, which I love. If you have a thicker foot, these may well work for you. My foot is average, and these just felt too loose on my foot. It is a well-made sandal, however, just need to be able to adjust the strap somehow. I would recommend these only to a person with a heftier foot.
