My orthotics love these almost as much as I do!
on July 30, 2012
I had been searching endlessly for months for a pair of shoes I could wear around the house of tile floors, and possibly walk the dogs in. I wanted something easy to slip on and off-- something just past the "slipper range." I have flat feet and wear orthotics, and also have small ankles, which made it very difficult to find a shoe that met my needs.
I had originally glanced at these, and thought they looked way too narrow for my not-technically-wide-yet-spread-out feet, and they hadn't gone down in price yet so I looked around quite a bit, ordering pair after pair and shopping till I dropped. Then the other day I noticed they went down in price and I figured I'd give em a shot.
THEY FIT PERFECTLY. I had to wear thinner socks, which I prefer anyway. The zipper was hard to close on my thicker socks. I wear a size 9 to 9.5 (occasionally a 10) and the 9 fits me well. These shoes are attractive enough to wear out, and have a minimalist design that, unlike the "barefoot" trend shoes, won't kill my flat feet on tile floors.
I've only had them two days but I'm madly in love. I hope this style stays around forever because I will definitely want another pair when these wear out. I bought the black, although I tried on the mesh tan and thought it was more attractive. Black is alright-- better suits housework and cooking. But I am tempted to get a pair of the tan for going out.
I understand that these won't meet everyone's foot-needs, but if you have orthotics they are perfect. None of that feeling of your orthotic heel being too thick and your foot too high in the shoe!
