Vionic w/ Orthaheel Angela Orthotic Thong Sandals w/ Backstrap
Beautiful shoe but my foot couldn't grip the footbed. Its silky smooth micro velvet or something and my feet are dry and smooth and I couldn't keep my feet from sliding to the side. Tired out my feet. So sad because the style is gorgeous on the foot. I thought at first its because there's not enough upper to hold onto my foot but then I realized my feet just couldn't grip, like socks on a waxed floor. Begrudgingly I returned. The white and tan was stunning.
Bought these because I was going to be walking a lot on vacation and my plantar facititus is so bad I didn't want to hold my family back. I wore them a month straight before the trip and walked for miles on vacation without a single issue. In these shoes I have total relief from pain. My only negative is the back strap keeps sliding down and I have tightened all the straps as tight as they go. If the back strap were stitched down this would not happen
Love, but sadly had to return
These sandals are so cute, but I purchased a size 9 hoping they would fit me as I wear an 8.5. You definitely have to size down. Since they didn't have my size, I was hoping the size 9 worked, but it didn't. Hoping this style comes back in my size.
Love These Sandals!!!!!!
This is my 2nd pair of Vionic sandals , love the brand!!!!! These sandals are so comfortable they look amazing and my feet feel and look fabulous!!!! I get complements every time I wear them, you can not go wrong with these!!! I don't think these sandals are pricey you get what you pay for. :-) WINNER!!!!
Like walking on a cloud
I work on my feet all day being a school librarian. These shoes are very comfortable and my feet are not exhausted at the end of the day. ( I wish I could say the same for my body. ) Some may think these are a little pricey, but you really have to take care of your feet. Will buy more Vionic. I normally buy an 8 1/2 in sandals, but the 8 actually fit better than the 9.
Most Favorite Shoes
I love these, I came back for more after my dog decided he loved them too and chewed the top strap in half. I wear them all the time, walk in them, work in them, garden in them and they are cute! I have a very high instep and a hereditary bone on the top of my foot and the strap doesn't bother it at all... I have another pair of regular vionic flippy flops that I love, but they are a little more rigid and while I can wear them all day, these are my favorites hands down. Please can I get a replacement in a sz 8! :) Love these so much I'm actually taking them to a cobbler to see if he can repair them!
Not good for standing
I love the look of these Ortho heels but they slip around on my foot even after adjusting the straps. The main problem is that they are not cushiony enough. I went to an event where I had to stand for 45 minutes and I had to keep shifting side to side. I felt like I was standing on concrete. I will be keeping them only because it is past 30 days.
The first time I wore these sandals was for eight hours straight and they were great. No break-in needed. These sandals are my fifth pair of Orthaheel's. I own two pair of slippers and two pair of thong-style sandals. Looking forward to more. THANK YOU QVC and ORTHAHEEL!!!!
I am a firm believer in Vionic. My feet are trashed after decades of running and living in HI in slippers and bare feet. Once I discovered Vionic a few years back, there are no other shoes for me! Bought these in both colors and alternated daily. Best price on QVC. I am beginning to think I should have bought duplicates. Brown strap between the toes on one sandal was a little irritating at first. No problems now. My one complaint, Vionic needs to keep up with designing new styles and create a few higher quality styles for work!
I just received these sandals and its quite uncomfortable. The thong part of the sandal is very rigid, hard, and it hurts in between my toes and I can't imagine going for long walks. Perhaps if they soften the thong part of the sandal, to me, it will be more wearable. I am disappointed, but it just wasn't meant to be for me, so I will be returning the sandals.
LOVE......but a flaw
I was SO EXCITED TO GET THESE IN 2 COLORS! I own over 20 pair of orthaheel shoes, mostly flip flops in many styles, but also slippers, sneakers, etc. I have awful bunions, so the "lack of shoe" at the bunion region makes for a happier foot! Even flip flops hurt my dreadful bunions since they still slightly touch the bunion region. I assumed this would be my dream shoe in terms of comfort, & bought 2 colors. I later noticed this "style" shoe is all over thetop fashion magazine which is an added bonus, but not primary highlight for my painful feet. I miss high fahion shoes, but orthaheel has come a long way..and they offer some fabulous shoes that are fashionable now! My probelm w/ this otherwise comfy shoe is not easy to explain, & I did not understand former reviewers mentioning the issue until I received them. Unfortnatley, the top strap ( the portion covering the top of your foot) is too short. Therefore this strap tugs at the area b/w my toes. I adjusted the straps to make them as big as possible without sucess in rectifying the problem. I know it sounds confusing b/c I read this from other reviewers before buying, & did not fully understand how the strap was to short when there are 2 places of adjustability, but those reviews were indeed correct. I tried again by re-purcahsing both colors. No luck. In every pair it was the case in either the right or the left shoe??!! I assume there are perfect pairs out there! Not mine. Otherwise, these would hands down be the perfect shoes for my bunion pain and my over-pronation issue which caused my bunions! ute too if you have aprtty pedi and a great self tanner from QVC!! : ) QVC is seriously one stop shopping : ) PLEASE REVISE THE FLAW?
Love These Shoes!
I love the look of thong sandals, but normally they hurt my feet too much to wear them. Not these!! These sandals are perfect - cute style, comfortable, they elongate your feet, but in a cute way!! They are wonderful. I bought the black, but I think I need the tan with white also!!! Love the adjustable straps too!!! So cute!
