Rated 3 out of 5 by JessZee Sturdy, supportive shoe, but...
I've been wearing these shoes for about a week, at work.
Some of the pros: they have orthotic support built into a ballet flat style of shoe (I couldn't fit most inserts into my old ballet flats, when I started wearing orthotics for my plantar fasciitis), the straps keep the shoe in place, and they are true to size (I go between a medium and wide width, and the mediums fit me perfectly). If you're looking for a sturdy, supportive shoe that looks a little dressier, this will do the job. However...
Some of the cons: as mentioned by others, the leather is pretty stiff, and it took a good week before I started breaking them in. Even then, they're not super flexible shoes, like a traditional ballet flat. In addition, QVC only offers them in a medium width; this works for me, when I'm wearing hosiery. However, if you have wider feet and/or plan to wear these shoes with socks, the fit may be tight.
Overall, a decent, classic dress shoe for those who need or like orthotic support.
Rated 5 out of 5 by VaLady Most comfortable shoes ever!
For a few years I've been buying shoes with built in orthotics exclusively. I finally thought I would give a pair of Vionics a try. I am very happy with the shoes. These are some of the most comfortable shoes I have found. There's a slight heel and then, toes fall into a nice large comfortable toe box. I am happy I purchased the shoes in black as they will be worn frequently. I will be keeping my eye out for new styles in this brand. Stylish comfortable shoes are hard to find!

I like the Vionic brand of shoes, because of their benefits to my feet! I have a couple pair of Vionic sandals; love them! I have tried loafer styles in the Vionic brand, and they don't stay on my feet well; so I have returned. When I saw these on air, I thought the straps over the top/front would help them stay on my feet. They do! I like these shoes! They are cute, and comfortable for me! I got the bronze color - nice neutral color. I will wear these now and in to the Spring. I got my usual size in Vionic, and they fit!

These are the most uncomfortable shoes I've ever put on my feet. They are cute, yes, but stiff and hard. It felt like I was walking on cement. I have other Vionic shoes and they are very comfortable and cute, especially the leopard sandal with the large gem stone.

Ordered the plum and they are the cutest! However, the faux leather is very stiff. I knew I couldn't overcome this so unfortunately they are going back. I think maybe going up a half size would help somewhat.

These shoes are so cute however I need to return them. First, thought the wedge would be higher; second the inner sole on right foot seems to be different than the foot bed in the left shoe, also my toe hits the front even I purchased them in my normal Orthaheel size. I am not sizing up because although my toe hits the front toe box, the heel of the shoe does not hug my foot and I am afraid that the next size up will be sliding on my heel

I purchased these in black. They came in today.... Love them... I have worn them all afternoon without discomfort. If you have Plantar-Fasciitis Vionic is great.... The fit was great.
