Vionic w/ Orthaheel Pearl Orthotic Thong Sandals w/ Jewel Detail
GREAT SHOE!! But need space on Midfoot strap....
Bought this shoes in July 2014. Bronze color. Color, look, made and jewels were awesome. With my case in size, I am 11W, and this runs bigger so I truly could fit 10W, but because of the strap which couldn't allow my mid foot to fit through, I had to wear the beautiful shoes w about half to an inch foot left in the front of my toes for awhile. My daughter who wears size 12 had to do the stretching for me and now,after months I can wear them around but it is bigger than normal size like they say. When I go back to wear regular slippers, I now realized the difference in comfort, softness and balance this Vionic shoes gave me. !!! A 10 to that Vionic! BUT please, if you raise the bottom of arch, sole, and mid area of the shoes you are making - you are taking off space from the thickest/or widest part of the feet and give no room to move forward to use the whole front area. The toes and front part are already free and too wide in my opinion which I think causes the rubbing and hurting our feet because the feet too loose...The STRAP on MIDFOOT AREA needs room or stretchy strap added. The front part Of shoe is wide enough n believe me, I have wide feet and this shoe is plenty wide in the front. Some jewels fell off mine but so is every other make but this shoe holds great for its price.This is a great shoe and I am ordering another but will try 10W ..wish me luck for the mid foot area....
Love the sandal
My last pair was two years old. Still good, but looking a tad tired. So I decided its time, tried this new style. Love, love, love the shoe. Same perfect, comfy fit. Dressy and casual at the same time. Thanks for the free shipping!
The sizing can be a little different. I'm a 7.5
It's always strange to size down.
But, fits perfect, when you trust that.

I've purchased at least 6 pairs of Vionics and Orthoheel thongs and flip flops which fit and feel great.
These however are so uncomfortable and fit horribly that I had to check that I ordered my correct size. They look fantastic, but are unwearable.
What a shame.
i have several pairs of Vionic sandals and one pair looks to be the same style except with studs instead of jewels I wore these a couple of times in the house before wearing them out shopping. After about 30 minutes, they were wearing blisters on my feet and I didn't have any other ones to switch them with. My daughter and I switched sandals and they rubbed blisters on her feet also. After over a month, I still can see where the blisters were on the top of my feet. These were pretty but very rough around the edges. I had to send them back.
I have loved wearing these in pewter this summer but the bling is falling off one or two at a time. Boo. :(
I have sent these back once because the vamp part was large and I thought it was just the pair of shoes, so I had them to send me another pair. They are the same way, the top is not secured with elastic on the side, so it doesn't fit your foot right. It has no give to it, and it stays too big for the top of your foot. I don't like sending stuff back, so I will have to eat this one, but I wont be ordering any more Orthaheel Orthotics.
purchased purple in my normal size, same size as my other ortho heels and this pair was way too large. Returned immediately.
So Sad, really Beautiful
I have three pair of Vionic sandals, in a different style. I love them, though I think the consistency is off somewhat, as one pair, fits differently than the other two of the exact same style. These beautiful purple sandals, were so much larger than my others, marked the same size. Too long, and even too wide, though I have a wide foot. I had never heard of Vionic until this year,mi wonder why their sizes are inconsistent.
I own other Orthaheel sandals that I love. But these are constructed cheaply and are very uncomfortable. Don't waste your time buying this style. Choose one that has a softer strap.
Sizing is off
I just can't seem to get the right size in these shoes this year. Last year I bought several pair of thong sandals in a size 9 and 9 wide. They fit perfectly. This year that size just doesn't work for me. In the regular of some styles the arch doesn't match my foot and in the wide width they flop on my feet. Too bad because I love the shoe and the new styles are great but I've had to return 5 pair already because I can't get the right fit. I give up.
Expensive "Flip Flop" With a Poor Fit
Although I shop with the QVC quite frequently, I have never felt compelled to write a review until today. These sandals are beautiful but fit poorly!
I assumed because these were rather costly Orthotic thongs they would be very comfortable. However, my assumption was very wrong and I made the mistake of wearing my "new shoes" out of town to go shopping without taking a backup pair.
After less than an hour of walking, the toe piece and the top of the shoes had begun to rub blisters on my feet due to the poor fit.
The sole of the shoe and the padding are great but the construction of the man-made upper is horrible.
I was shocked to be in that much pain after wearing THONG SANDALS for less than an hour.
Wake up quality control at QVC and Orthaheel..... My feet were sore even the next day.
It is pretty sad when one has to pull off an $80.00 pair of very uncomfortable sandals and buy a cheap comfortable pair at a discount store in order to finish ones shopping.
Yes, I had worn them for almost an hour, but QVC WILL be refunding my money on the ORTHAHEEL thong sandals. The shoes ruined what was supposed to be a fun shopping trip with my granddaughter.
These shoes are gorgeous, purple is my favorite color, and always love bling! However, the hosts claim that the thong doesn't hurt cause it's soft, well I tried them because of this claim. I have never been able to wear thongs because they hurt, these do hurt if you are sensitive between the toes. After wearing them once, and hardly walking in them, my ankles ached for the entire evening, I could hardly get to sleep!
I sent them back!
