Bought these for my 12 year old daughter who has problems
with her ankles subluxing. They are great and well worth the
money for her. They allow her to wear flip flops like the
rest of the kids but still have her feet and ankles in
better alignment. Obviously they aren't as supportive as her
running shoes but they are much better than any other sandal
we've found for her.
These are wonderful! I ruptured a disc in my back a few
months ago. This shoe/flip flop has been a God send! They
are so comfortable and have helped with my back pain. It
does take a bit to get use to them. I first thought I would
send them back but wore them for a while and now I don't
know how I lived without them!

I got this shoe in black, it is a bit dressier than a plain
flip flop because of the patent band on the straps. Got many
compliments on them the first time I wore them, and no one
believed they were orthotics! Took a bit to get used to the
thong between the toes, but that happens every summer when
the sandals come out. True to size and very supportive.

I love the Orthaheel products! I have four pairs of sandals
in different styles and love them all! I have both Planters
Fasciitis and really high arches, which always caused
problems wearing sandals because they do not offer enough
support. When you first try them on they will feel a little
odd but your feet will thank you for the support these shoes
provide. All they need to do is come up with a dressy flat
for work and I am in business.

I wore these to Disneyland! I own these sandals in 4 colors
now and will continue to add to my collection. They are
super supportive in the arch and the straps are wide enough
to keep the shoe snug on your foot. I like a high arch
support, however, so you need to know that the support is
very firm and some may find it uncomfortable for a long day.
My teenage daughter, for instance, thinks it's too firm for
her. This sandal always looks nice because it's very easy to
clean, so it's more versatile than your average flip flop. I
wear a 9 1/2 shoe and buy the 9 . The fit may depend on
where your arch rises so you may need to try two sizes.
