Vionic w/ Orthaheel Sara Orthotic Shoes with Addl Insert
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).
This shoe and all Vionic shoes and sandels are the best, They make my hurting feet feel like " HAPPY FEET". They are great also for anyone who has RA. Would defintely recommend to everyone to at least try.
Comfortable for all year round
These shoes are very comfortable and will be worn all year long. I love the color and style.
I Wanted To Like Them
This shoe was obviously beautifully made. I would have enjoyed wearing them but the shoe was too snug at the point where you bend your big toe when you walk. It just wasn't going to work for my foot so, sadly, had to return them... I love my other Vionics.
I should have listened
I should have paid attention when so many reviews mentioned the uncomfortable rubbing in the outside of the foot where the shoes is stitched. The shoe seems to be wide enough but is just plain uncomfortable.
Front of shoe pinches at the edge near toes. Because of this can't really evaluate whether the shoe would work well. Returning item.
To narrow and I don't have a narrow foot
I love this brand of shoe, but this actual shoe was horrible. I couldn't even wear it because it was so uncomfortable. The seam across the top rubbed really bad and it was to narrow in the toes. They were cute, but I had to send them back.
I knew that that the shoe was ugly (could see that), but I was looking for a well made comfortable shoe to walk in for hours and did not care how it would look. Unfortunately, this pair of shoes is not comfortable on my feet. I could not walk in them even in the house. Have to send them back, I do have a pair of Vionic samdals that I love! I do not see a reason why these shoes are so expensive.
Love this shoe! Very comfortable and great arch support!
