Thank you for your feedback.
I'm glad I did --- they fit perfect!
They fit well with my orthotics and the red ones garner a lot of compliments.
I walked a 5k the first day I wore these shoes; very comfortable and i could instantly feel the support.

    Size: 9 B(M) USColor: Dark Grey/Silver Verified Purchase
    I ordered two pairs of these shoes, one Women's 8.5 and one Women's 9, because I wasn't sure which size I required. I ordered from the same amazon product page. The shoes shipped in separate orders, each from a different vendor. The boxes were different, and there are slight differences in the styling of the shoes (for example, one has a pink area on the side of the sole, which the other does not). The real surprise, however, is that the sizing on the shoes was inconsistent. The 9 was demonstrably SMALLER than the 8.5. According to the stamps in the tongues, the 9 corresponds to a Euro 39, while the 8.5 corresponds to a Euro 39.5. Both pairs were too small, although the 9 was more tight-fitting and shorter than the 8.5. Clearly, the shoes were made by different manufacturers and given the Dr. Weil brand.
    In addition to the sizing issue, the support was not as great as I expected. I have two pairs of Orthaheel sandals, and they are the best shoes I've found for walking and the only sandals I can wear because of plantar fasciitis. I thought that these Orthaheel sneakers would have a similar inner sole. In fact, the sole of the Dr. Weil sneakers is not as sculpted as that in the sandals; the heel bed isn't as deep, and the arch is not as pronounced. I have inner soles I purchased from REI that are far more supportive, and they can be placed in any sneakers.
    Overall, a disappointment. I'll return both pairs.

    Size: 9.5 B(M) USColor: Dark Grey/Silver Verified Purchase
    I purchased these shoes as I tend to overpronate and have plantar fascitis in my right foot. I had read online that these shoes tend to run a little smaller than Orthaheel shoes, so I purchased a half size up, which fit my feet (with socks) perfectly. The one complaint I have about orthaheel is that the footbed is rather wide for my feet, whereas these shoes fit them very well. With that said, people may find the footbed a little tight if they are comfortable in medium width Orthaheels. These shoes not only position my feet well, but the pain from my plantar fascitis is almost non-existent! I also like the look of these shoes as well. Highly recommended for problems with over-pronating and plantar fascitis.

    Size: 9 B(M) USColor: Dark Grey/Silver Verified Purchase
    I have plantar fasciitis and have had great success with Orthaheel orthotics worn in my sneakers and other shoes. They're really great – and inexpensive compared to these shoes. I also recently purchased a pair of Orthaheel sandals, which also had great support. In fact, the sandals had better support than the orthotics. Given my success with those two purchases, I went for these shoes, having read a number of the reviews.

    These shoes unfortunately are very cheaply made. The material is just poor quality, reminding me of something you would buy at Kmart or Payless shoes. The orthotics inside these shoes were not nearly as firm and supportive as the separate Orthaheel orthotics which I already have. Basically, it looks like pretty cheap shoe with a Orthaheel orthotic – but not high-quality style you can simply buying your own.

    Another contributor factor to the low review was my return experience. I had to pay a shipping fee to return these shoes. As a long time Amazon customer and prime member, I really think that basic good customer service should include return shipping especially for purchases like shoes. Basically my recommendation is to go to zappo's instead as Amazon’s return policy makes it just too risky to buy shoes or apparel. I will not be purchasing another pair of shoes from Amazon due to this return policy.

    Size: 10 B(M) USColor: Black/Teal Verified Purchase
    I wear only Orthaheels with the exception of the Saucony's I wear to work with my custom orthotics. I wanted to transition them out and have a pair of Orthaheels for work instead. Since I had total knee replacement I have found the orthotic foot bed of Dr. Weil and Orthaheel to keep my knee in great alignment since I tend to over pronate when walking. I have 15 pair of these shoes. So I am comparing these shoes to the ones I already own.

    I purchased both the black/teal combo in size 10 and the gray in size 9.5 due to conflicting reviews on their fit. I figured I would return whichever did not fit as well. I was surprised when I opened the box at how "inexpensive" these expensive shoes looked. However, being familiar with the quality I proceeded to try on the size 10. I put them on with my usual socks and laced them up. As soon as I stood up I knew these were not going to work for me. As I walked across the room to a full length mirror I could feel my arch fall and my ankle give with each step. When I stood in front of the mirror I could see both feet were pronated inward and my ankles really off kilter. Thinking the shoe must just be too large. I then tried on the 9.5 with the same results. My heart sank as I was so looking forward to having the same great arch support as I found in the Orthaheel/Weil Mary Jane's, sandals, and even bedroom shoes.

    I removed the foot bed from the 9.5 and compared it to my other 9.5 foot beds and found there to be a difference in the height at the arch area. I also noted that the 9.5 foot bed had "10-11" stamped on the side. I believe one factor is that the mesh is just not that supportive on the sides of the shoes. Also, this arch support in the ones I received is nowhere near as high as the ones in my other Orthaheel/Weil shoes. I returned both shoes. I may try the other Orthaheel walking shoe and see if it is any better.
