Vionic w/ Orthaheel Sara Orthotic Shoes with Addl Insert
Cute shoes and comfort!
Cute shoes and nice comfort. All the arch support needed and the extra inserts - love 'em!
this shoe literally came apart after only a month of wear. inexcusable. threw my money away
Not This Time
I have many many Vionic Orthotic sandals and mules and just love wearing them. I really feel that they are good for my knees and hips... but for some reason this one did not feel good. Maybe it is because the orthotic is removable ?? not sure, but I had to send these back. Was sad as the shoe itself was nice looking ...I got the tan color and if not for the severe knot feeling under my arch, I would have liked the style. This will not keep me from buying this brand all the other I have are wonderful.
Wanted to love these!
These are so adorable, but, I got the black in my 71/2 and they were a little big so, I thought I'll keep socks on and wear them around the house and nope, the part that covers the toes started hurting the top of my foot when I walked. Sorry to say, had to send them back!
Good support and cute too
I have several pairs of orthaheel sandals and also their slippers/wool clogs. I decided to try the Sara because it was on sale and I wanted to give the shoes a try. I have narrow feet, but I do have a small bunion on my left foot. No problem . Slipped these on and adjusted the velcro strap and took off walking! I got them in the nutmeg color and I think they are adorable. I have read the other reviews and will probably not wear these out in rain or bad weather, but they will look good with crops or jeans. I'm a happy camper. I gave them 4 stars instead of 5, because, for expensive shoes, I think Orthaheel should use more leather, but since the footbed works for me, I buy them anyway.
My "Go To" Shoe
I have this shoe in three of the four colors offered. They have definitely been my "Go To" shoes for the 2014-15 winter season. They are showing very little wear after 3 - 6 months of use. Also, the extra pair of inserts that comes with each pair of these shoes is a real plus for me. I have tibial tendon failure in my left ankle/foot, so I have to wear orthotics. I am so glad I found Orthaheel. Since 2013 I have been buying exclusively from this company and have been satisfied with their shoes 95% of the time.
Not a good buy
Although they were comfortable they were made of plastic which fell apart after one month of wearing them. Over priced for what you expected to last awhile. No I would not recomment these shoes.
shoe not all leather
I didn't realize that this shoe was not all leather - shoe fits fine (8 M) but my feet are too warm due to synthetic material on the inside of the shoe - I will probably return them because of that but everything is fine, i, e, size and comfort
I did order this shoe and thought it was really nice but had to return because it hurt my foot around my small toe ,really to bad cause i really liked the footbed in them ,just needed them in a wide size
I have multiple pairs of Orthaheel sandals and wear the thong slippers always in my home for support. I have bought the Orthaheel inserts for my Ryka tennis shoes. So I thought I would have no problem wearing these. I wore them for one day a week ago and the arch of my right foot is still so sore I am limping. The fit was perfect and I did not have any pinching in the toe box as others have said. Don't know what about this shoe was so different. Maybe too flat on the heel and made the orthotic too hard for the arch of my foot. I am just glad it didn't make both feet sore!!! Sending back.
Review the Reviews
Wish I'd read the reviews on this product prior to ordering. The extra inserts are comfy in other shoes; however, the shoes themselves do not feel true to size as stated in the description. For me, they are short in the toes and hurt immediately. Also, while the straps' closures are velcro, the length isn't truly adjustable, so for me, the straps are too loose to be useful for keeping the shoes in place on my medium width foot. I was really looking forward to a comfortable walking shoe, so I disregarded my own rule not to order shoes on-line if I have to pay return shipping. Costly mistake.Must send back both pairs.
If you don't like Mary Jane's....that's ok....but this is my first pair of vionic and I ADORE them!! Wanting to put the spare inserts into my boots or other shoes (yes...they even sent a spare pair of insoles :# Great for when I'm not running around in my skechers and need something a bit more nice for casual night dining or when in town and looking for my husband some shoes in this brand! #a bit more formal feeling than Clarks too but comfortable).
