Vionic w/ Orthaheel Sara Orthotic Shoes with Addl Insert
Not the best orthaheel puchase
I ordered the wine - not really wine colored, more brownish so this was disappointing. All my other Vionic Orthaheel purchases have been great and although I need a good arch support in a shoe, these are somewhat uncomfortable due to a very high arch.
MAXIMUM SUPPORT AND STYLE!!!
I have ordered my third pair; each in a different color!!!
This Vionic Style delivers, fit, comfort and style ADDITIONALLY the cushioning is equal to a pair of "walking sneakers" In fact, as its Spring, I have taken to walking in this particular style.
Now, if Vionic would crossover with similar cushioning and fit to an "all terrain/running/impact sneaker".......:)
They are a little uncomfortable on the back of my heel, but that may be because I am not used to wearing this type of shoe. Width wise they are comfortable. They are a welcome change from my usual flip flop or running shoe. As with all my Vionic/Orthaheel shoes, I ordered 1/2 size down - ordering a 9 instead of the 9 1/2 or 10 that I wear in other brands and these fit well.
I am a floating teacher, and these shoes have been a lifesaver this year. I ordered them in black and this light brown color. I wear the black more often. I find my feet don't hurt, and my back doesn't hurt as bad with these shoes. I like that they come with the extra pads. I have just about worn my black insoles out- wearing them barefoot, so I will be changing out the pads soon. They aren't the cutest shoe, but they go well with pants and look professional enough to get away with on a daily basis.
Love these shoes I now buy my clothing around these shoes. I also bought a pair of slippers so I can always be in ortho heel. Now I am looking into a summer shoe, vionic ortho heel will be the only shoes I wear from now on, everyone comments how my posture has improved!!!
Cute but ripping apart after 6 months
These shoes are so cute but are ripping apart. The "leather" is thin and ripping at the seaming at each side of the toe box and that's not because they are tight because they are not on me. I had ordered a second pair but then noticed the ripping and returned that second pair before I wore them. I love the inserts and the shoes are comfortable but not impressed with the quality of their shoe making. Will continue to use the inserts but will not purchase shoes from this company again.
Loved the shoe, but the shoe bleeds black every time I wear it and I agree with the one lady who said they are short in the toe when you walk....
Please we need leather that breathes.
My Daughter Loves These
I purchased these for my daughter as she has worn orthotics since high school and now she is 37. She loves these and the bonus of receiving an extra orthotic is wonderful. She can remove the orthotic and switch them out or put them into another shoe. I think this was a great value since the cost of her orthotics from the podiatrist is over $100 for one set. Thank You for the great savings and for the help these give her.
I purchased these for my Grandma who has diabetic nerve pain in her feet. She constantly struggles to put on shoes due to pain and swelling. Doctor said no open heel or open toed shoes. These are perfect. They were a bit uncomfortable at first she said but like any shoe it takes some breaking into. They come with an extra set of insoles she put those in some other shoes and enjoys them. we FINALLY know what to get her as gifts. HIGHLY recommended! They are also super stylish not like the other ugly comfort shoes. This brand even makes heels!
Fit is bad
This shoe was cute in person but I had to return them. I have a normal width foot and they were just so tight on the sides of my foot near my toes. Very disappointed.
Non Leather Materials
Cute Shoe -- Viovic needs to concentrate on leather materials as well as the orthotics of the sole. No matter how good the orthotics are, the non leather material will make your feet perspire. Come on. You have received lots of feedback about thisl.
I haven't worn these yet, but I do like the look and I have a navy pair which I have worn and love them.
