Weil by Orthaheel Rhythm Orthotic Lace-up Sneaker
Lightweight and great for flat feet!
These are wonderful! I have over-pronation issues that cause knee pain, so having supportive shoes that help keep me aligned is very important. These are similar in support to the Vionic by Orthaheel brand QVC offers in that they have a lot of arch support for those of us with flat feet. I walk and jog on a regular basis and these have been great for that and offer breath-ability without compromising style and function. I suggest sizing a half size up in order for proper fit.
Recommend with exception
I like the comfort and support. I wear these shoes to work BUT they are not dark grey. The net portion is purple. Silver reflection inserts and white sole. ALSO, I was hoping for the sturdy Orthaheel footbed. This footbed is softer. Maybe ok for a newbie in this category but I love Orthaheel and this one is disappointing.
didn't fit right made my arch hurt
sadly this shoe didn't fit me correctly and they were to wide for me
Great for bad feet
I have flat feet and heel spurs. I stand on concrete floors for 8 hours a day. These are the only sneakers I can wear without foot pain by the time I go home! Then I change into the Shawn orthaheel slippers.
I purchased these shoes thinking they would give me support, but didn't everyday I leave work feets and ankle hurting. ..Paid all this money for them..
LOVE THESE SNEAKERS !!
This is my second pair of ORTHOHEEL sneakers and I love them. Great support for my back and feet issues. Love that they are lightweight and not heavy. I am a size 7.5 M and that's the size I ordered and they are a perfect fit. Keep them coming !!
My new favorite sneakers!
I bought these shoes before Christmas, and have worn them every other day since. I put them on the first day; wore them til bedtime. What a wonder! To slip on a pair of shoes without having to wedge in an orthotic seemed heavenly to me. One odd thing, in these shoes I wear my regular size, which is a ten, but in all the sandals, I take a 40 European which is a 9-9 1/2. I don't know why this is. Someone that can't get a fit might remember this little oddity. Anyway, just love these shoes; keep the leather ones coming.
Not the best Orthaheel shoe
I bought these shoes sometime ago and loved the style. Everytime I wore them my feet would hurt. I was having some issues with my feet so I just have not worn them for about 2 months. I had quit huting in my feet so I put them on Tuesday and after about 2 hours my feet began to hurt. I wore them about 6 hours before I was able to take them off. Here it is Thursday and my feet still hurt. I wear nothing but Orhaheel shoes and am very disappointed in these shoes. They still look brand new but they will be given away. I will not wear them again.
Felt great until I took a walk in them
I do lots of walking and need arch support and structure in my shoes due to plantar fasciitis, mortons neuroma and arthritis. When these arrived, I put them on and they felt heavenly. Wore them around the house all day and was convinced they'd be great. Wore them for a walk the next day, and noticed the ball of my foot was starting to hurt. By the time I got home, I couldn't wait to take them off. Next day, the pain in my heels and arches was so bad I could hardly walk. Orthaheel/Vionic/Weil or whoever it is needs to rethink the engineering in this brand. They have the right idea with the arch support and inner construction, but they're making the orthotic too hard. It needs to be more cushioned or made of a different material.
These are game changers
I have had planters on and off and found the Ortho brand to be almost curative. For a trip to Italy this past Fall I needed sneakers and these got me thru days and days of walking. They were always comfortable. I didn't ever think about my feet. Get them. I sized up to a 9 as I would with any sneaker and wore with socks. Thinking of getting another color today. This brand is my favorite....they have saved my feet, honestly !
Not true to color
The shoes are very comfortable. If you looking for a stylish shoe with comfort these aren't it. They are more of a maroon color rather than black. I would have liked them more if they looked like the picture.
These shoes are no more special than any other tennis shoe. What makes them is the insert, which I think U can purchase separately. I wish I had done that and saved a little money. I went up a half size and the wide and I have a small foot.
