Orthaheel Cocoa Orthotic Thong Sandals w/ Adj. Strap
Pretty sandal, but poor fit
I ordered the Brown Snake color and was so happy when I opened the box! It was such a pretty sandal! I am a size 10 medium width with fairly square-shaped toes. The sandal fit length-wise, but my last two toes and the side of my foot hung off the footbed when standing. Even worse when I walked - the straps seemed to push your toes towards the outside. I loved the microfiber footbed, and would like to see more of this style footbed. Unfortunately, these sandals must go back due to the poor fit :-(
Imagine My Surprise!
This is my first pair of Orthaheel sandals. They are wonderfully comfortable, and I reach for them whenever I want a sandal. I love the way the heel supports my heels and the instep that cradles my instep.
This will not be my last pair of this brand!
Happy with them
I have several pairs of Orthaheel sandals & this is one of my favorites (LIKE the adjustable strap). I would buy again - the pink is a bright/pretty color that goes with many spring/summer outfits.
I got the brown. The stone accent is gorgeous. It is comfortable. My problem was my right toe. I had some stitches between my big toe and second toe about a year ago and it hasn't healed to a level to have anything between my toes. But the left toe felt fine. I had to return them. I got another pair of the Molly style.
These were comfortable just as soon as I put them on. The arch is not too high, but the foot bed is a bit more narrow than I would like. The velcro strap is wonderful for finding just the right fit. I had knee surgery a couple of month ago and have been struggling with lots of knee pain. I found that I am able to bend my knees and walk without pain in these sandals! I was disappointed in the cocoa bronze snake fabric-- it is a bit sparkly and cheap looking. They are so comfortable that I will still wear them even though I don't care for the fabric.
This sandal felt comfortable as soon as I put it on my foot! The arch feels just right, but the foot bed is more narrow than I would like. The adjustable strap is very nice for finding the right fit. I had knee surgery a couple of months ago and have had pain ever since, and felt if my feet had started to turn inward. When I wear the sandals I am able to bend my knees and walk without knee pain! I only gave four stars because the Cocoa bronze fabric looks pretty cheap and was a significant disappointment. I purchased the Orthaheel ladies "Tide" thong and the fit was very different and extremely uncomfortable. This sandal has a more comfortable foot bed and arch. This tells me that you may have to try different Orthaheel styles to find one that fits well.
Comfortable right out of the box!
After hearing that you need to "break in" the sandals, I tried on my shoes expecting the worse. Happily shocked I was when I felt nothing but COMFORT! No break in time for me. They contoured to my feet perfectly and really do provide support. I ordered the blue and I LOVE the metallic sheen. Don't know why but I actually feel "sophisticated" when I put these on to run my errands...lol.
I will definitely be looking out for my next Orthoheel sandals :)
Love Orthaheel, BUT
This particular one is too tight for my fat foot between the toes and the strap coming backward. They really felt good except for the tightness. Sending back.
Great looking and comfortable small wide foot 5M
Bought these in the blue and the pink - love them both - have a minimal pearlized sheen to them and go with alot of blues and pinks, respectively. I have a short wide foot and these are wide enough - also the top strap is an adjustable velcro (great for getting pedicures)
I love them
Foot bed is too narrow so I have to send them back. The material they are made of gives the sandal a cheap appearance. The left foot feels real good on my foot and knee(problems) but the right shoe is too tight and both of my feet hang over the side. The person who designed these sandals overlooked everyone except those who have a NARROW foot. Oh well, now I know
This was my 1st purchase of orthaheel sandals. Felt great right out of the box. Fit true to size. Did not need to break in. I chose the black-nice!
Will be getting more in the future.
cute shoe but
i seriously wanted so bad for this sandal to feel great on my feet i suffer badly with foot pain from plantar fasciatus i bought two pairs of these the rasberry and the colbolt blue ,i couldnt wait to wear them i wore them for about 8 hours only because i was not home to take them off but the material in between the toe killed me every step i took it hurt ,sorry but sent both pairs back ,i ordered the papilios burkenstock shoe instead i have owned over 4 pairs and never had this problem that the orthoheels gave me .
