Hi - I love the 4 pairs of Orthaheels I have. Sandals, mules

& slippers. What is different about the TSV being "Vionic"?

Can women who have high arches wear Orthaheel shoes, sneakers and sandals?

Thanks,

What if your foot rotates outward instead of in?

I have 3 pairs of the orthaheel slippers. Do you 1) make a mans slip on slipper with no back and 2) do you make a slip on low boot for women that that can worn in the snow?

I'd love to get the TSV slipper for my husband. He's a men's size 9, what size could I get him in women's?

Great question, If you have high arches the Orthaheel technology will provide excellent support under the foot.

I have very narrow feet and most of the time I am unable to wear medium widths. I have a pair of the open toe adjustable slippers which I love and am able to wear due to the adjustability. I would love to have more of the shoes. Will you be making your shoes in narrow in the future? I have pronation and the shoes really help.

Thank you.

My son has flat feet, he has a lot of pain if he goes barefoot in the house. Just wondering are these good for flat footed people?

I have wanted orthaheel shoes for a long while now. Unfortunately, you lose (probably many) sales because you dont provide shoes in wide widths. You are missing out on my money Orthaheel!

I am wondering what the difference is in the vionic type of orthaheels?

The Orthaheel technology has been tested to alleviate the ailments associated with over pronation only. If you roll out, you may still find it a comfortable and supportive style to wear.

I have wide feet, especially in the toe foot area. Which of you shoes, sandals and sneakers have a wide toe box? And will some of them be available in a wider width later on?

Also, I've found that your Orthaheel Weil line tends to run narrow. Will you be making some of the other lines available in leather, suede or nubuck that more flexible and toe friendly?

Thanks,

Are most of your inserts removable? I just got custom orthotics due to plantar fasciitis and I am having a hard time finding shoes to fit my new orthotics as I have an unusually high arch. Thanks in advance for your answer :)

Hi, I'm a man and as a child and young adult I had no arch. I wore orthodic inserts and now I have an acquired arch, so I know the importance of arch support. You talk about the shoe correcting a person's tendency to "roll" to the inside. However, I tend to roll to the outside. In fact, my shoes wear down on the outside edges. Also, my feet used to be very narrow. Because I have been wearing slip-ons and Birkey's my feet have widened to a certain degree, but I still go towards the narrow side. Are your shoes appropriate for me?

Hi Guys! I live in the Northwest and would love to see more walking shoes and waterproof as well, lol. Think you will have some in the near future? Ankle boots would work, too. Thanks!

The only Men's closed style that we have in the range is the Whistler (we just showed this earlier). The only boot style we have in Women's this season is the Stacy, which isn't a waterproof style. The good news is that we will be offering a wider assortment of mens styles in 2014, and we are just finalizing the Fall 14 range, which have some women's boot styles.

There's genneraly around 2 sizes difference between men's and women's sizing, so a size 11 may suit.

We'll have a number of different styles offered next year with lots of adjustability which may suit you. At this stage, we only have medium and wide fittings in the range.

Hi, I started just this past summer with a pair of sandels, LOVE them! Then I bought the Geneva slippers, a bit uncomfortable but I'm ok with the now. Hope you will make a fashionable little "closed" toe and heel summer slipper. I'm looking forward to more amd more styles. Hope the boots next year will be snow proof. Thanks so much for this product, I have a sightly low arch and didn't think I needed support but I love the comfort difference I feel.

The Orthaheel technology will provide great support for a flat footed person. One idea might be to try your son in a pair of the inserts to see if they are suitable for him. He may need some time to get used to the feel of the support underneath the foot.

Hi Liam - can Orthaheel make shoes in wide with removeable inserts so I can put my orthotics inside.....please!

Hi

I have a question regarding the TVS.

I have a wide foot and a high instep will these slippers work for me?

I was given the open toe adjustable strap slippers in animal print and I live in them.

In september I bought my first pair of shoes the Jane mule, and whenever I go out I wear them. I have gotten rid of all my other shoes. Waiting for more wide shoes to come in and replace everything I got rid of.

Hurt my knee doing yard work in the Spring and have been suffering since. These shoes and slippers have been great. I am not limping anymore.

Hi Liam:

LOVE Orthaheel shoes. Got the Pink TSV which makes my 3rd pair of slippers. I am still wearing the Shawn slippers that ya'll offered last year. I am disabled, so I wear my slippers all day long. I think I have at least 10 pairs of other Orthaheel shoes, 2 pair of the Janes, the teal Sara, and some sandals from the summer. I try and not miss an Orthaheel show. Keep the great shoes coming.

I would like to see more Vera Bradley choices in the Lillie Bell pattern. Can you please get with Marketing and the Vera Bradley team and get us some more Lillie Bell choices

I bought these shoes and wore them for 2 days2 hours at a time and my heel hurts. How long does it take to break them in. I am 71 and have heel and leg trouble. Thanks
