Vionic w/ Orthaheel Flores Orthotic Slip-on Mule w/ Floral Pattern
Love the look, but...
I purchased these in purple, size 10 because I thought they were very pretty and I have other Vionic Orthaheel shoes that I'm very happy with. These were a little loose, so I started wearing them with thin socks. Then they started stretching out, so I tightened the strap to its limit. They continued to stretch, so now I have to wear really thick socks with them. I can't wear them out of the house because they don't stay on my feet really well. As far as support & comfort, they are wonderful. I've noticed that the white decorative swirls on the wool are pilling badly, so I will need to take some scissors or a sweater shaver to clean them up so they don't look so ratty. Orthaheel needs to make some changes to the design & materials on these, they are too expensive to have these kinds of issues.
well worn, love them but...
I have worn these in the house only for several weeks, however, they already look old and ratty. After three weeks, I wouldn't dare wear them out, they look that bad. The fabric has not held up and looks like the flats is literally coming undone. They have also stretched considerably. Unfortunate such poor quality for the price, but they are really comfortable and will continue to wear them in the house. (I wear a birkenstock 39 and ordered a 39 in these).
Very Attractive and comfortable
They look great, a bit loose - but that is a huge plus for me since I normally wear a 10 1/2 and half sized are nearly impossible to find in nice shoes. I bought the 10.
For the price I am not thrilled with the strap....it doesn't seem of very high quality and that does concern me, however, I'm sure if it breaks the local shoemaker can put on nice leather ones for me. And if they loosen too much I can add one of those Dr. Shoals liners. I'm used to having to 'fit' my shoes myself after all these years.
I am not recommending it as a gift only because I would never rec shoes as a gift because of the fitting aspect......and women sometimes lie about their shoe size!
did not turn out like I had hoped
I thought since the reviews I read that I would love these.. but they have stretched
out and are more sliding on my feet than I would want.......Not as happy as I had hoped I would be ;( I ordered the brown.
I didn't know about these shoes as this is the first time I've purchased from this Brand. I'm thrilled with them. They fit nicely even with my handknit wool socks and are so very warm. I love the orthaheel and hope I will find these wear well for a very long time. I also hope to buy more shoes by this Brand.
I purchased in January 2014 and did not get the chance to wear much due to an illness I was using as bedroom slippers. I got them out to wear this fall and the buckle separated from the shoe . Vic fortunately stood behind their product and are reimbursing me for the purchase price . shoe needs some redesign in future.
I was missing my Orthoheel sandals when it got cold so when I saw these on clearance I decided to try them. They are much like my Birkenstocks but being made from wool they are oh, so warm on my feet. There is room enough for heavy socks, too, double warm! I love them! Maybe I'll come back for a 2nd pair before they are gone.
So cute and comfy
These are so comfy and cute!!! For people like me who suffer with heel and arch pain these are just wonderful because they really provide lots of support in the arch. These run a little wide which is great since I have a wide foot and Vionic doesn't make many options in a wide size. There is also lots of wiggle room for the toes which is feels great.
LOVE THESE MULES
Started out by purchasing slippers. They are so comfortable and well made that I decided to try the mules. Wonderful purchase. I got the brown. Wish I had ordered a second pair. I feel wonderful walking in them.
Had to return. Broken strap. Too expensive to be poorly made. Bummer.
I love this mule. Especially in the winter months to have a mule in this media. I received the brown.... just love it (gray all sold out) I wear a 91/2 so I sized down as recommended to a size 9. Fits great.
I was wondering if we could get the same mule in solid colors of the same? Please consider...... Liam.
These arrived today. The host said if they fit, they would be super comfortable. She was right! Thanks! they are kind of clunky looking, but after having a neurostimulator put in my back for pain after 2 car accidents in one year - comfort has got to come first.!
Thank you! Looking forward to some comfortable AND sexy looking shoes :)
Thus, 4 stars until then.
