Orthaheel Fleur Orthotic Thong Sandals with Flower Detail
Wish I'd read previous reviews before ordering 3 pair! Beautiful shoes, very cute. Left foot fit perfectly. Right foot hurt and couldn't figure out where or why but as the day progressed, realized it wasn't gonna feel better. Somewhere around the applique right out the gate it hurt but I figured during the course of the day they would work themselves out...they didn't. That one shoe cut my foot and I couldn't understand why a flip flop hurt! Not supposed to and the other foot was fine. I'm sending them all back. Others have experienced the same thing. Weird but not worth the price to suffer through.
Don't see the wow factor
These shoes fit well, but didn't feel any better to me than an ordinary pair of shoes. The area of the thong where the flower was attached rubbed the top of my foot and was not comfortable. They were really cute, but not cute enough to justify the expense.
Cute, But Uncomfortable.
I'm giving these 5 for style, comfort a 1. They rub between my toes and feel sharp. I really loved them they are so cute in person but I had to send them back.
I love orthaheel shoes. But not these. I bought these in both cobalt and black on the buy more and save. The style is so cute, but under the flower is rough and it hurts a lot on both pairs. Sadly they are being returned.
Cute But No Cigar
I thought these were sooo cute, but when I put them on and walked around the house they were not secure on my foot. They were very loose and my foot did not stay in place. This is not my first pair of orthaheel, but this is the only pair that would not stay on.
Not well made
Comes with the O/H standard footbed that - yes - is supportive and comfortable. However, the straps are a hard plastic-like material that digs into the skin near the toe. I wore them for 2 days thinking it would get better but did not. Nowhere near worth the price charged for this item. Went back.
Too narrow for me
Beautiful shoe but too narrow for me. I had hoped that since they did not offer a wide width that this open style would work with my high arch. It did not.
I got these to walk around Italy. The day I received them I thought maybe I should wear them a little to break them in! No need for any break in. ... Just put them on
I have 2 pairs of thongs from orthaheel...I was able to wear the basic orange for a full day walking the mall between the capital and washington monument....no problem...this more dressy thong seems less sturdy and gave me blisters between my toes. I love the look and support. The basic thongs are better....I wear 9.5 and purchase 9.0...works out fine.
Hit the Jackpot!
I love this sandal! I was hoping Orthaheel would come out with a dressier sandal, and here it is! I can't get past the cuteness factor! Great for any age. I have them in Black and am purchasing a 2nd pair in a color. The footbed is soft and cushiony, and the arch is noticeably substantial but not too high. The microfiber foot-bed wisks away moisture.These are so comfy they feel like supportive thong slippers! This sandal has an average width in comparison to their flip flops, which run a little wider. I wear an 8 1/2, and sized down to an 8. Full sizes shouldn't size down on this one. If QVC had free shipping/returns, I would have bought from them.
JUST A FLUKE?
Received these cute sandals in the cobalt but had to return them. The stitching on the underside of the flower on the right sandal was jagged and stuck out, rubbing against the top of my foot and making it very uncomfortable to wear. Not sure if I want to re-order. I have several pair of Orthaheels and really like the product. Oh well.
p.s - can't comment on the other colors, but the blue flower on the cobalt is more of a lavender than blue.
MY NEW FAVORATE!!!!!!!
I just received these. Being wearing them for an hour without any discomfort. I will absolutely order another pair as they are comfortable and fashionable!!!! Ah, jade color is very beautiful.
