Love these shoes! Great loafer! Love it! Great support and padding in heel. 03-07-13
DIsappointed I have several pairs of Orthaheel sandals, and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them! So I was excited to get shoes that would provide the same support in colder weather. I tried REALLY hard to like these shoes and keep them, but they were just too uncomfortable. They irritated the top of my foot where the seams are located and would have rubbed blisters. I tried several times, but can't justify keeping shoes that hurt at this price and medium level of style, so unfortunately they went back. 02-25-13
good fit, poor quality shoes First, the shoe fits rather tight. Secondly, as with the sneakers, the quality of the leather is very poor. I do not recommend that the user wear these shoes, or any of the other shoes from Orthaheel in any kind of precipitation. The leather peels off quickly. As much as the fit is great, I now do not recommend this shoe or any of the others at all. I wish I had read the reviews of the other reviewers before investing in the shoes. Perhaps I may try the inserts, but I will probably go back to Clarks before trying these again. 01-25-13
Love these shoes! I love these shoes in pewter. I am 67 years old, I am a teacher, and need lots of support for overweight issues but no foot issues. These were worn 8 hours right out of the box and I still did not take them off when I got home as I usually do first thing with other shoes. I just can't really say how much I am impressed with these. Of course you do pay for what you get but they are so worth it. Just do it! 01-25-13
Not the same fit I ordered these thinking they would fit as the others I had purchased. They ran wide and did not give the support I had hoped. The shoe string is just trim and can not adjust. 12-27-12
Comfort! I had the orthaheel sandals this summer so tried these shoes. They have the same support and your feet feel so good at the end of the day. Am going to order another color. 12-23-12
Happy feet! I bought these in a half size larger. I am on my feet all day and they provide great support. I love the pewter color as it goes with anything. I highly recommend them 12-09-12
Great Casual Shoe I ordered two sizes up since I wanted to wear socks with this comfy shoe. Looks cute with jeans. Great for all day comfort. 12-05-12
Perfect flat shoe This Slip-on Suede Loafer was true to size, gives me the arch support I need, feels comfortable all while looking good. I have been looking for a closed toe, cute, arch supporing shoe for y e a r s. Last summer I wore the orthaheel flip flops and loved them. Now if they could come up with a ballet type shoe...... 11-05-12
Cute but not as much support I have the Arcadia and several pairs of the sandals, so I bought this thinking they would fit the same way. Unfortunately, these don't have the same support as the other shoes I have from Orthaheel. My heels hurt in these, meaning there wasn't enough arch and heel support, and the toebox felt crammed. I think you have to do at least a half size larger in these. If you don't have heel or plantar issues, these may work for you. But don't expect the same support in these as the Arcadia or the Dr. Weil summer sandals. There seems to be too little cushioning. 11-04-12
Great Shoe -- NAVY PLEASE! Purchased in pewter which is a nice gray coloration. If the brown is ever back in stock in my size, I will purchase. Shoe is very comfortable. No issue with tightness or problems on back of heel like some reviews have stated. Wore them for 4+ hours out of the box and ran errands with no pains or shoe break in twinges. Would love to purchase in a navy color if anyone from Orthaheel is reading this. This shoe is well worth the money and will be my go-to for the winter months since the sandals are now out of commission. 11-01-12
So Comfy I love these shoes! First time in a long time that shoes don't hurt my feet. Very cute and well worth the money. I did order up a 1/2 size. 10-26-12
