Weil by Orthaheel Rhythm Orthotic Lace-up Sneaker
I ordered these in black and they are so comfortable. Hard to go back to my other sneakers. Wish I could afford them in every color! I also love the sandals, but the cold weather shoes lack style. I hope they can get the fashion going with the Orthaheel technology in cold weather shoes and boots. For now, I am just going to order more open shoes and flip flop styles.
I got the grey size 10 and they are so comfortable! True to size! I have plantar fasciitis and was Leary. I have been on the treadmill everyday since I took them out of the box!
Like these sneakers
I love the look of these and the light grey and coral are a nice color. I found these to be true to size. I normally wear a 8.5 med and I ordered a 8.5 and fit perfect. I didn't find these to have quit as much arch support as I thought, but I did notice the heal in them are a little different that most other sneakers.
I was so excited to get my shoes. When I put them on my foot I could have cried. My left foot is the one with the problem and it hurt so bad I couldn't imagine trying to walk. It was like having a tennis ball in the arch of my shoe and having to walk on it. It may work for some but I am sending both the slippers and the tennis shoe back. Very disappointing.
Greatest sneakers ever
I had two surgeries to reconstruct my ankle due to another brand sneakers' damage to tendons and ligaments. I MUST wear the best insoles, and I found them here. Dr. Weil is well-known, and the insoles in these shoes take away the pains. My only, tiny issue is that the sides of the sneakers, while the same height as the typical ones on the market, are slightly too high to stay completely away from my ankle scars and painful areas. If they were a quarter to a half inch shorter around the ankle, I would never wear any other shoe. I don't usually write reviews. I am not a paid spokesperson. I just needed something I could walk in without extreme pain. These shoes are like walking on air, truly wonderful shoes. I purchased lots of grey and red clothes, just so I could match them with these shoes.
Great Walking Shoe
I started with the 6.5 size because of comments made here, was too big and caused blisters. I returned for exchange and received size 6. Just as before I love them, and my hips & lower back no longer ache after a mile + walking. Not every shoe works for every person, these work for me, I wear them every day.
Love these for my knees!
I have extremely bad arthritis in both of my knees. I have been wearing Orthaheel shoes for years and sometimes when I switch to a regular shoe my knees don't bother me as much. Except for these! I just made a long flight from Houston to Seattle and when I got off the plane and went to my hotel I was exhausted and my feet were sore and my ankles were swolen and I could barely walk. The next day I put these on and I was fixed! Even though I woke up still in pain, these helped me get through the day with minimal pain. I can't rave enough about them. I had actually put them up in my closet for "sport" wear, but they are staying down for everyday wear now and I'm going to order another pair in a different color. I wear a size 10 medium and I feel they are true to size, and very comfortable. Thank you!!!
A SAD and PERPLEXED "NO"
I have two pair of summer Orthaheel sandals that I really love. I wear them all summer and wore them exclusively on a trip to Puerto Rico which involved a lot of walking. I need shoes with a lot of arch support. I have very high arches. I assumed that these would work if I ordered them in the same size as my Orthaheel sandals (regular 10). Sadly, I have walked in them a lot but they just feel too big on my foot. Even with trying thick socks, they just feel like they are moving separately than my foot…..my foot, back of heel, is moving inside of the shoe. I am coming up on the 30 day return date so I am packing them up. Sad and bewildered as to how I could adore my Orthaheel sandals but these just don't feel they are a part of my foot as I walk. I tried lacing them up tight, too. But nothing helps.
Runs extremely small!
I own many orthaheel sandals and 2 pairs of shoes. The sandals consistently are true to size, however the shoes are different sizes. When I ordered the sneeker in a larger size I was hoping to wear a heavy sock. They ran extremely small and had to be returned. I will not order orthaheel shoes unless I can return w/free shipping as on other web pages.
These sneakers are very cute. However, they are extremely painful. I'm a long time wearer of orthotics (and Orthaheel). They fit, I can wiggle my toes, and the sneakers are not tight at all. The middle three toes on my left foot have gone numb and the bone on the toe next to my big toe is throbbing. They even have caused my plantar fascia tendon on my right foot to become aggravated. There is ZERO SUPPORT in these sneakers. I can't wear them and now I'm stuck with $119 mistake. If you care at all for your feet; don't buy these. They are a waste of money.
Perfect Nursing Shoe
I am on my feet for over 12 hours and these shoes help with foot fatigue. LOVE the arch support and the extra height helps too. These are a bit pricey but worth every penny.
Ordered two pair in the wide width hoping I would love them. Received them and they are a great looking shoe, excellent arch support but no support for the outer sides of my foot. I knew if I kept them after a few times of wearing it would look and feel like my foot was sliding off to the outsides of the shoe. Sending them back but its going to cost me unfortunately. I really should stick to trying shoes on at the stores.
