Vionic w/ Orthaheel 2 Pack Relief Full Length Orthotic Insert
Since I started Zumba Gold a year ago, I've been having heel pain, bottom (in the heel pad). I overpronate and could barely walk sometimes. I was desperate. I bought these, put them in my New Balance and Ryka shoes, and the pain pretty much went away. I didn't even have to do the wear-a-few-hours break-in, and I didn't have to trim them (Large, to Size 12, Women). I'm ordering two more right now.
sizing is way off
I'm a woman with a closet full of size 9 and 9.5 shoes, so according to the sizing chart for this item I should be a M. So that's what I bought. I have average width feet. The forefoot of these inserts is so wide that they won't even fit inside any of my shoes. Going back immediately.
The quality of these insoles is not there.... they are made out of foam! No support and no structure. Returned them.
Nearly as good as custom
After a long bout of severe plants fasciitis, and a trip to the podiatrist for custom orthodics, I thought I would also try these. They are great for smaller style shoes, like lightweight tennis shoes...cuter than clunky walking shoes which is what my custom orthodics work best in.
So now I have a choice. I can tell these add a lot of comfort and support. More so than the drug store varieties.
For the reviewer who said sizing is too large, just cut down the top part to fit your shoe shape!
love thses, am a nurse with knee and back problems, this really helps. can't wear the regular orthaheel shoes as my foot is too wide for the flimsy velcro straps PLEASE make shoes with buckles!
Not for me
I saw these on TV and thought they looked great. I work in the lab at a hospital and am on me feet all day standing on hard floors. I have tried other inserts and special shoes with no luck but I thought I would give them a try. The first pair I pulled out seemed to be cut slightly off. The right foot hurt and was uncomfortable while the left felt great. When I pulled out the second pair, the right foot pain was not as bad but still did not like how these felt. I wore them for about a half hour everyday for a few days and I don't feel any better; only worse. Made my feet hurt worse than they already do. I am done wasting my money on inserts that look promising but don't work.
I can wear my Chuck Taylors Again!
Hurray! These inserts work perfectly in both my Converse high tops and my dress boots, so now I will have more options to comfortably deal with both heel and knee issues.
As others have noted, these won't work in my dress flats and heels: too wide and long (hence the four stars).
For anyone who is on their feet a lot, I recommend giving these a try.
I really like these inserts, all I had to do was remove the original insert and put these in. I just love the feel of orthaheel shoes, I am able to transform my others shoes into comfy ones.
These are AWESOME!
I bought these because after standing all day at work my feet were so sore. Since I bought numerous orthaheel sandles and loved them all why not try this. I couldn't wait to get them. I have had them about a month now and my feet are no longer sore!
I was so looking forward to these inserts but, they were too big for my shoes even though I followed the size chart. I will try them again in a smaller size. I really cannot rate these as I didn't have a chance to wear them.
Please Make in Wide Width
Since I wear a wide width shoe, please consider making your orthotics in a wide width. It would be most appreciated.
I've tried em all. These are the most comfortable and my feet don't hurt. I work on concrete floors for hours as a cook and have tried every shoe and insole they make. These seem to be the best. All I need I'd for them to make nonslip shoes!!! You will not be disappointed. I did order the wrong size but returned for the correct size.
