Orthaheel Porto II Orthotic Croc Sandals w/Jewel Details
WORST PURCHASE I'VE MADE
The first purchase from QVC in June 2012. These shoes for are far from comfortable and they made me have swelling around the ankle. When I see them advertise these shoes I change the channel, because if it is padding it is the hardest padding I have ever seen. This is one item I will never order any of Orthaheel no matter how many styles and good reviews they have, did not work for me. Sent them back before the 30 days was up and have never regreted returning them.
I wanted to love these...
however, my heel was at the end of the back (if not hanging over just a tad) & there was 3/4" extra in the toe area! Since this shoe has a wonderful arch support, you can't exactly scoot your foot forward to adjust for the heel/toe length problem.
Just a note, I ordered my normal sandal size, which is a size 10 (I wear 9 1/2 in regular shoes & 10 in sandals so my heel doesn't go off the back). And they were the brown. I wasn't wild about them being Croc when I ordered them, but they weren't too bad in person. I didn't unwrap the jewels because I knew that I wasn't keeping them & didn't want ruin them, so I can't really speak to how nice they are or not.
So, sadly, these are going back.
Right out of the. Box they were so comfortable. I have pronated feet and these make walking comfortable again! I have (and will in the future) buy more!
Can't find Orthaheel Sandals that Fit Right
After knee surgery I'm loving my Orthoheel walking shoes and slippers. They help align my legs from hips to toes and feel wonderfully supportive to my weakened knees. I'd love a pair of sandals but this is my second attempt and same problem -- the fit is WEIRD. I order my normal size 9 and the heel cup fits well, arch fits well, then the toe bed extends way out past my toes. So the sandal looks way too big. Again, second time I've had this problem and second time the Orthaheel sandals have gone back to QVC.
Five stars for some Orthaheel products. I'll keep trying but so far, sadly, the sandals aren't working for me.
I HAVE WORN THESE SANDELS FOR 8 MONTHS .I DO NOT HAVE FEET ODOR WITH OTHER SHOES-ONLY THESE. I EVEN WASH THE BEDS WITH SOAP AND BLEACH .I LIKE THE STYLE AND COMFORT OF THEM ONLY THE LACK OF BREATHABLE BOTTOM IS THE DRAWBACK OF PURCHASING MORE ORTHAEELS
Really great sandal
Ordered the aquamarine which it is not, but these are so comfortable. I have worn orthodics for years or Burks, but these really make my legs, feet and back feel so much better. Will order another pair when I see the right ones.
Love Orthaheel, but...
These shoes didn't work for me. The straps just don't close flat, and they hit the ball of my foot in a hurtful spot. Normally I love Orthaheel, but these are being eturned. Too bad, as they are cute.
I am new to the Orthaheel brand and purchased the Today's Special Value not knowing what to expect. I am not a big fan of the toe seperator so I ordered these sandals instead. I am keeping both pair. I am not extremely overweight, I do not have feet, heel, back or leg problems but I believe in good health and if something can help you walk better and feel better why not? I highly recommend these to anyone, even if you don't have feet problems. Well worth the money. Oh and I like the mint green color too. My next pair will be some clogs for work.
I bought these in black. I have to say that I did need time to get used to them (hence the 4 stars) but I bought them for my 2wk vacation to Hawaii and it was very nice. I walked EVERYWHERE and my feet were very happy, so was my back. I actually saw this exact show in Hawaii made by a different company for more money. I also just read an article in a magazine yesterday and they recommended Orthaheel as a great shoe and it wasn't an advertisement either. I like the vinyl bed for easy cleaning and my feet don't get hot at all!
Aquamarine shade is not blue but green
Wish I had read an earlier reviewer's note, which said ""If you order the Aquamarine expect a light mint green with no hint of blue." She's esactly right, which is why I am returning these. There is no resemblance to the color online. The jewels are a light yellow-green shade. Other than that, I love the comfort and the adjustability of the shoe and would recommend it.
love these shoes
I have back issues and these shoe are great.i can be on my feet alot longer
Love and Hate
I am so sad that Clarks no longer makes the 3 strap (no back strap) adjustable sandals. I have a very narrow foot and these sandals were the best and most comfortable sandals ever! Since I can no longer buy these sandals I am always searching for a comfortable, yet stylish adjustable sandal that will fit my narrow feet. I decided to try this sandal. I like the fact that I can adjust the sandals to fit my narrow foot...but the footbed is horrible. It does not absorb sweat and makes your foot slide around as you walk. You would think for this price that they could afford to put in a suede footbed that will absorb sweat. I have to use talcum powder inside each shoe everytime I wear these sandals. The bumpy footbed also makes the bottom of my feet sting. I kept these shoes too long to return them...my fault. I like the style a lot, and with improvements I might order this style again, but I doubt that I will ever order this style unless they improve the footbed. Clarks...please bring back the sandals I love...they were all leather, comfortable and cost less than these sandals. I am disappointed. People with narrow feet sure have a hard time buying stylish sandals...I hate the back strap! QVC...please find us some cute sandals that are adjustable, dressy, and comfortable.
