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.
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.
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.
