Vionic w/ Orthaheel Relax Orthotic Adj. Strap Slippers
Good but could be Better!
First, I will say that these slippers are extremely comfortable. The problem is that the sole is much heavier than the other 15 orthaheel sandals I own. Also when they sewed the velcro into the right shoe they allowed it to go too close to end of the material so it was rubbing. The left shoe was ok. I had to cut the velcro and steam the edge with my rowenta to keep the material in place so it would not rub. I also had to take a seam ripper and remove the label as others have stated. The technology is perfect. The quality control on this one isn't. Since I will only wear Orthaheels because of my feet issues, I gave it 4 stars for comfort. I feel I shouldn't have to personally tailor the shoe for $60. I hope the manufacturer and QVC read this and make the proper adjustments including the weight.
I have a few pair of Vionic shoes & slippers, & this is the first time I'm disappointed. I found these slippers to be uncomfortable in that it was hard to walk in them. If I made the velcro loser, there was no support to keep them on my foot. If I made the velcro tighter, I couldn't get my foot in them. Unfortunately, these will be returned.
I own 2 pair of these for summer wear in the light blue and the cow print (pink with black spots) and it is difficult to get me out of them when I leave the house. Usually wear 7-1/2 to 8 and I ordered 7M as instructed. They fit perfectly. Love the adjustability. They are sooooo comfortable, good arch support and I have over-pronation. Please bring all the other colors back, the blue with hearts, the light blue and the pink with black dots, all my friends think they are so cute and want them too!!!
love love love
This is my third pair of slippers. I wear them so much I wear them out.
Wear Them All The Time
My husband and sons got these for me as a Mother's Day gift because I love the winter version of these so much. These are great warm weather slippers. Our house has central air, so even in the summer these are not too hot to wear. They feel great on my feet, and keep my legs and back feeling good, too. After two pairs of Orthaheel slippers and a pair of sandals, I am a big fan of the brand. I can't wait to add to my fledgling collection!
Best Slippers ever!
These are just wonderful! Makes it so easy to walk around the house!
Very Comfortable, But...
Ordered 2 pair. Have to agree with many of the people who wrote reviews. The inside label on one of the pair has irritated my foot, thus only 3 stars. I was not able to remove the entire label, but tried cutting off a tiny bit of the corner and it's a little better, but total removal would be best. Does Orthaheel read these reviews? They surely should and do something about the label - like placing it somewhere other than the inside. I'm glad at least that it's only an issue with one pair and not both!
Great slippers, Great Support, Bothersome Label
I really love these slippers, and they are my second pair of this style. The first pair I got in the late Fall, so wore socks with them for the first 5 or six months, and by that time the red "orthoheel" label on the inside of the slippers had worn.
On this new pair, the red Orthoheel Labels were irritating the top of my foot, so I had to get out my seam ripper and remove them. Once I did that, the issue was resolved.
The only reason these do not get a Five Star, is because of the red "Orthoheel" label which has sharp pokey corners.
Love these !!!!
I recieved both pairs of my slippers today and WOW what a difference they made on my feet . I can finally throw away the first pair that I have had for ever it seems. I thought I would try buying a cheep pair but my feet said no. So I bought two pairs of slippers and one pair of sandals and them them all!!!!!
After buying 3 pairs of orthaheel sandals, I was really looking forward to receiving the slippers. My first reaction was that they were pretty heavy and I thought they would be lightweight. Once I put them on, I couldn't walk in them. The sole is thick and very stiff and doesn't bend. Not good with foot problems. Sorry but they have just been sent back. It's a great idea if the sole was lighter in weight and flexible so that's why it gets 2 stars.
Okay..grew to like
At first I didn't like these I couldn't walk without sliding around in them. Then I sat down and adjusted the straps FIRMLY and now I can walk. My only complaint on these slippers is when wearing them barefoot (no socks) the tag scratches the top of the foot. They are okay I wont buy again.
not the same since the company changed hands
I have been a BIG fan of the Orthaheels brand since seeing them on QVC. Before the brand changed to Vionic in the name, these were the best things I had ever worn. They are still very comfortable but for some unknown reason, they now have a VERY scratchy tag sewn into the bottom side of the top of the slipper. Stop messing with a good thing Vionic!
