The Plantar Fasciitis Orthotic Sandal.
These sandals help to combat the effects of plantar fasciitis with a stabilizing orthotic footbed that realigns your feet to a neutral position. The deep heel cups are molded into the sandals' comfortably soft, shock-absorbing EVA footbeds, providing arch support while aligning the feet into a natural position for those who over-pronate--when the heel bone angles inward--a determining factor in the development of plantar fasciitis. A medical study conducted by a panel of physicians confirmed that participants who wore the sandals experienced a decrease in pronation, improving their gait mechanics. Completely waterproof, the soles are made from resilient rubber molded with a non-slip pattern. The toe straps are padded with foam.
Men's sizes 5-12; Women's sizes 6-13. Whole sizes only.
For men's half-sizes, order the next size up. For women's half sizes, order the next size down.
The sandals fit well and seem to be helping with my plantar fasciitis. The look and style are also quite nice. However, the fabric of the thong is quite stiff and has given me a blister between my toes. They are also very slippery on wet floors. I really like them and hope that the fabric will soften in time and that there will be no more blisters.
I need a good high arch but the inserts for shoes lift the middle of my foot too much causing another problem in my leg. I tried the sandals and found a good high arch in them all right. It seems too high just now but I know that because it is 'spongy' it could settle down slightly and that will work out just fine. I also have a fat foot and find that the strap is too low at the toe divider, so it digs into the top of my foot which hurts. I wet the straps with hot water to stretch them faster and put a band aid between my toes and wore the sandals around the house . I also like the fact that you can wash the foot bed when needed. By the time they get worn in I will be very pleased to have the proper support while walking around in Italy!
These sandals offer good support. The only problem I have encountered so far is the tong between the toes cut into my skin on my second toe. Also the strap left a cut on the top of my foot. I am hoping this will become more comfortable once they are stretched out.
These sandals do live up to their name and feel great. I have suffered with plantar fasciitis for sometime and these sandals feel great and look good.
I love my Orthotic Sandal. They are everything I wanted in a sandal. I love summer time and being able to wear a sandal that will prevent my feet from hurting. This sandal delivers the goods. No more pain and I'm definitely in style. Thank You!
excellent quality, works for what it was designed for
I was very excited about buying a sandal that would keep me from pronating. The footbed in this sandal is quite good, but the problem is the strap between the toes. It hurts, quite a bit. I still want the benefits of the sandal so I'm trying to toughen up my feet, but I shouldn't have to do that. The description says, "The toe straps are padded with foam. ". This is not true. At least in the pair that I got.
The add in SkyMall stated the colors are tan or black, but the sandals I received were gray. I ordered a men's size 11, which is my shoe size. When I tried on the sandals my feet stuck out over the back of the sandals. The shipping and handling charges are excessive, and increased the price of the sandals more than 20 percent.
This really didn't provide the support I thought it would, in my case anyway. The design seems to be good for the majority but I guess I'm in the minority.
Not as good as my orthotics for my shoes but they do feel good. It's nice to wear flip flops again!!!!
My hubby wound up with Plantar fasciitis and being a runner, was getting tougher. Was unable to wear any type of plain flops gave these a try and he wears them well with out pain...
This is the most comfortable sandal I have ever owned. With other high-end flip flops I have heel and foot pain within hours. I can wear these all day with no foot pain and no back pain. Highly recommend them to anyone.
No problems with the plantar fasciitis while wearing the sandal. I've already recommended it to others.
My fiance suffers from plantar fasciitis and can never wear sandals more than an hour without complaining. So far he has really been pleased with these sandals. The arch support is great. I wish they made them in a brown color instead of the really light khaki, but they look good still.
Somone complained about the toe wedge being uncomfortable, but he thinks it is fine.
Very comfortable and you could definitely feel the pronation in your foot the minute you put them on.But the more you wear them, the more comfortable thay get. Only negative, the strap on my left foot seems to be digging in to my foot slightly. That is my problem foot so maybe its just breaking in time. Otherwise quite pleased.
While these sandals are as described, I'm not sure yet if they are right for me. I am trying to break them in a little at a time. The straps are not that comfortable and if I wear them too long, they cause my back to hurt. They may be like orthotics in that you need to get use to them gradually.
I had gotten a pair for my husband who has flat feet and has problems with most other sandals of this type. He not only liked them alot, I ended up having to order a second pair for our teenage son who also has flat feet and was 'borrowing' them all the time! Both felt difference right away, took a day or so to get used to, but the lack of foot pain convinced them it was the way to go.
Indeed it is a big relief for my heel pain. I have been suffering for several months. When I received it I never used any other foot wear. My only grief is the color. I love bright colored slippers.
Plantar Fasciitis Sandals are the best sandals to
wear to eliminate the heel pain. They are very comfortable.
I've just been wearing the sandals for about a week. So far I can feel a differents in my feet and also my legs. I really think that the Plantar Fascitis sandals are going to help me alot.
At the start of the day, end of the day or anytime in between, whether I'm walking to the coffee maker in the morning or standing up for extended periods of time, these sandals are fantastic. The great arch support really keeps my feet comfortable. The toe straps are a little stiff and caused mild discomfort the first couple of times I wore them but that quickly resolved itself and I absolutely love them - can you make some shoes like this in other styles - maybe slide ons, sneakers, even something I could wear to work?
The part between the toes is thick and very uncomfortable. May soften with time and wear. Also if you've had soft suede soles in your sandals before, you won't find them here.
Have hlep my pain a lot. They really works.
I love wearing sandals but my Plantar Fasciitis kept me from wearing them, that is until I found these. They are fantastic with great support and looks good too.
I've had ongoing plantar fasciitis for years. I recently began working from home and found myself wearing only a pair of socks or going barefoot all day - making the situation worse. Since I began wearing these sandals all day, my feet feel much, much better and getting out of bed in the morning isn't the same painful experience it used to be; I think wearing these sandals all day long has helped support my arch and take the pressure off of my heels.
Sandal is great. Very comfortable.
I am very happy with my Plantar Fasciitis Sandles that I ordered from SkyMall. They look and feel great. The price was fair and the ordering was easy with fast delivery.
I have had Plantar Fasciitis for many years, but could never find comfortable sandal to take away the pain.
These sandals have done the trick. It is like walking on air.
Thank you SkyMall
This was a gift for my husband and he loves them. They fit well and give him the support he needs
Having been diagnosed about 5 yrs ago with Plantar Fasciitis, I have had difficulty finding any shoe that wasn't a 'clunker'. I'm on my feet all day with arch supports; so when my day is over, I need support and comfort with less restriction. This sandal offers just that. I can wear this sandal for hours without pain. YEA!
The sandals are very comfortable and seem to redirect pressure to the proper part of the foot. The only bad thing is they don't come in 1/2 sizes and the size I got is about 1/2 size too small, and thus the next size up would have probably been 1/2 size too big.
The material used for the toe rubs and causes fiction
They are comfortable and easy to wak in. I live in Phoenix where a closed shoe is hard to wear in summer, we live in sandal's.
NOW I HAVE SANDLES TO WEAR FOR THE SUMMER AND NOT AS MUCH PAIN AS BEFORE. THEY ARE GREAT.
all i can say is IF you have seen these and thought, "I would like to try these/ have plantar pain" etc.... do yourself a favor BUY THEM
first time i wore them felt like they would be uncomfortable but even that first day even when I took them off I could feel the difference TREMENDOUS ARCH Support works 100 times better than those "inserts"
When I was diagonosed with Plantar Fasciitis I was so disappointed because I love my flip flops in the summer. I purchased the plantar Fasciitis Ortho flip flops and my heel does not hurt when wearing them. In fact, I think the sandals have helped my heel. I would highly recommend these sandals to anyone who suffers with heel pain. I am going to purchase two more pair. Thanks Sky Mall.
My fiance loves his new sadals. His posture is great in them and he feels so much better!!
this product is extremely comfortable and really does help with the effects of plantar fasciitis. After using it for a couple of days you will feel the difference.
at first i didnt think they would work but after the first week of warring them they seem to be working good buy
The sandals did not provide the relief I had hoped for. The center strap is not cushioned and rubs!
I have bad ankles from years of sports injuries and wanted an alternative to my shoes with my orthopedic inserts. These flip flops do the trick. I have an upcoming vacation on the beach and now I can look forward to walking the beach in my new flip flops.
I have the flattest feet on Earth, doctor's cringe when they see them and children weep. Last summer I suffered my third and longest bout (almost a year) with plantar fasciitis so now I'm super careful with my feet. When my wife and I decided to head to the east coast in Aug I knew that I would need a flip flop to keep the "dogs" cool yet also give me the support I need while we walked around NY and DC.
These sandals are great! The only reason why I can't give them five stars is due to the toe straps. Before this sandal I hadn't found a sandal with good enough support so maybe I am not used to the fabric that goes between the toes (when I do wear open toed shoes I tend to wear slides). With these sandals I find that the piece that goes between your toes to be a little stiff and uncomfortable. However, after a few short trips I didn't notice it as much. If you frequently wear flip flops you may not find them to be a bother at all.
After wearing these sandals a few short weeks I'm thinking I've hit a gold mine. I love the support and being able to walk around without shoes. Now I'm thinking about getting another pair in black...
I have sufferd from this pain for over a year. my favorite footwear is flip flops and boat shoes. When I saw these sandals I knoew I needed them. I wore them for an entire day and found relief! I wish I could wear these sandals all the time.
OK, but not most comfortable flip-flops I've ever worn. They're kind of rough on the bottom of the feet. Also, the right sandal hurts my arch a little bit.
I'm hoping the sandals will perform as advertised, and provide the stability needed to improve my plantar fasciitis condition.
Both my wife and I suffer from Planter facititis and I saw these on a flight home from Las Vegas. I ordered them for myself as soon as I got home. They worked great to relieve the pain. My wife tried mine even though they were too big and loved them so I had to order her a pair as well.
This is exactly what I had been looking for to wear in hot weather and to slip on around the house. I have already recommended it to a friend.
After seeing these flip flops in the Sky Mall magazine, I went home and purchased them on-line. Much to my surprise they worked extremely well. Only wore them a few days and noticed a big difference in my heel pain. Would highly recommend these to people with plantar fasciaitis.
They were also nice looking, did not lok like an orthodic sandal.
I have had plantar fasciitis. Since I was planning on a vacation to Hawaii, I got a pair of these to help fight the foot pain from walking around, but still be able to wear sandals.
They are a bit "boyish", but definitely helped eliminate the foot pain. The straps are a bit wide and did rub my toes for a bit until I got used to them, even though I'm a lifelong sandal wearer.
I just bought a second pair for me and a pair for my fiance for the trip as well.
I'll post again for his input from a guy's perspective (and one who rarely rares flip flops).
This is the first pair of sandals I feel good in. The support is good for my troubled feet. The break in period is a couple of days for those of us that are not used to the strap between your toes. My plantar fascistic have definitely calmed down. A good buy.
I bought a pair of these sandals and I love them. My son is in his second year at UCLA and his doctor told him that he had to have more arch support. So I bought him a pair and he loved them. At Thanksgiving his older brother put them on to walk outside to get the paper and then he wanted a pair. I volunteer at my local farmer's market and will be on my feet for six hours. If I wear these my feet do not get tired or hurt.
ever since I started dealing with this foot problem, it s been extremely diffiuclt. I had to pay $400 to have special sole built in in my shoes and tennis but I could never find anything to replace my flipflaps, it s great for going places like the pool, or the beach this product made a difference in my life...... I am so glad i bought it.
Great Customer Service, and Excellent Product. They are super comfortable!
not quite used to them as yet - but the arch is nice and the elevated heel is very comfortable. They feel good on my feet.
I just completed a month of therapy for plantar fascitis and both the orthotics doctor and the rehab specialist recommended this sandal. My feet were so hot in sneakers all the time and I had totry them. I've had them two weeks and have no complaints. I started out slow wearing them for short times. Then I danced for four hours two nights ago, couldn't believe it! I still do stretches most every day but these sandals are a life saver, I'll wear them all summer and fall.
I can now wear sandals again and walk without pain.
I currently wear Olukai sandals which are used for Plantar Fasciitis also. The are made out of leather..
These sandals are hard rubber with no give to them. I tried getting into them as directed, but after 1 hour, my calve muscles were hurting. So I backed off the time but still couldn't getting into them.
I will be returning them.
I will have to stay with my Olukai Sandals.
I bought these sandals on the advice of my chiropractor....love them. Very comfortable and able to wear a sandal now that acts as my insole orthotic.
I don't like to wear flip flops, but these are the best and most comfortable ones i've ever bought. Great buy.
Very comfortable, could be a little more flexible
I suffered from plantar fascitis and now with the help of inserts for my shoes and wearing these and Spenco sandles, I am pain free in my feet.
No more barefoot walking for me. I can't go without these special sandles. They are comfortable and wear well.
My husband has plantar fasciitis and wanted these shoes. They are great. When I ordered them the first time they were to big so I had to exchange them. It was very simply to do. Will be ordering more from Skymall.
These sandals are a great way to get relief from foot pain and have the cool option of open shoes versus my bulky orthotics.
These sandals are excellent. I am using them for a month now and they are really working. My pain is gone. I strongly recommend this product.
AT LAST...after months of painful walking these sandals have made me regain the ability to walk pain free....yeay!!!!
Over the years I am on my second pair! I guess that is the best testimonial - I bought them twice!! The are really comfortable and relieve me of pain in my feet. I highly recommend them!
No issues with the sandal whatsoever. They are comfortable and seem to be all that is touted to be. I look forward to the long term effects for my feet! My attitude is already taking me there!
I was desperately looking for an informal sandal that wasn't a flip flop sandal. I needed to have more support to use insider the house in the spring/summer, outside including on the beach. These seem to do the trick. I feel like I won't slip and will prevent plantar fascitis which I've had previously. It does take a little getting use to which the directions state...
These sandals are wonderful. They are comfortable and give support. I even take my walks in them, as they are more comfortable than walking shoes. I rarely wear any other sandals, as these are so comfortable. I now have a pair of black and brown sandals and love wearing both pairs.
I play very serious racquetball and recently got Plantar Fasciitis. I wanted something to wear that was more casual than tennis shoes for this summer....this was definitely the answer! It will take a little time to get used to the arch support, but when you get used to it, these are very comfortable and will help your arches at the same time! VERY PLEASED!
These are great and this my second pair as I wore the first one out after wearing almost daily..buy!
Great on the feet that are always in pain!
Love my shoes and would buy another pair!
I bought these about a month ago and have been happy with the shoe. These sandals are attractive and very comfortable to wear for many hours. It leaves my feet feeling really good. Size seemed a bit larger than normal for a 6 but still looks and feels fine. Good buy and happy with product.
I love these sandals. I live in them! They support my arches and I wear them all year long.
I just purchased my second pair. The support the sandal provides is great for people with flat feet.
The arch support is a good idea; these soles are too hard. Need a layer of cushioning to be able to wear them. I am returning the sandals.
These sandals feel so wonderful on my feet. The arches are extrordinary! So glad I have them.
This is my second pair and love them. I'm a big guy and these are fantastic.
Altho it is a great ortho sandal for supporting the arch, for me, it causes knee pain. I have a torn meniscus in the left knee, which becomes active from time to time when I wear elevated shoes or sandals. Also, the left foot slides in the sandal not giving it a snug enough fit for the entire foot.
Those who are afflicted by Plantar Fasciitis need to cut out wearing flats, like flip flops or ballet flats. So when I viewed this product in the Sky Mall magazine I just knew I had to order as soon as my plane landed!
I am SO very pleased with my new flip flops as I know I'm doing something wonderful for my feet & I still get to wear flip flops!!
These are super comfortable, and help with planter fascitis. I wish they were a little cooler looking, but they are fine. certainly feel good to walk around in.
I was hoping these sandals would really be great for my foot pain. But the arch is too high for me. I have sensitive skin and the straps would give me blisters.
I have plantar Fasciitis on both feet and my doctor recommended I buy slippers from Orthaheel. So I did and they looked nice but when I walked in them for more than 30 minutes I got blisters on the side of my feet from the straps. So I so these in the Skymall magazine and decided to buy them. They are wonderful! My feet don't hurt nearly as bad after walking and no blisters! I wish they would come on more colors! Highly recommend!!
I was glad to find these, however the straps are very sharp/ridgid and cut my feet when the first day i wore them. Have not been able to try them again--have to wait for the cuts to heal.
For several months I started my day with the pain of getting out of bed and putting my feet on the floor. I finally visited a foot specialist and he diagnosed my condition as plantar fasciitis. I was outfitted with a pair of custom orthotics that I wear in my dress shoes, but I thought that flip-flops were off my wardrobe list forever. These flip-flops made the difference, because they provide the same kind of support that I received from my custom orthotics.
These have a firm yet comfortable insole.
This my second pair. I absolutely wore out the bottom of my first. pair. This time ordered down a size to see if the arch support would hit me a little further up. It does seem to fit . I love it. I have many shoes that I cannot wear. Love these orthodic ones. Now I need fancy ones !
This is my second pair. I wore the first pair out after six years of constant use. These are the most supportive flip-flops I have ever worn. After a full day of use, my feet are not sore and the orthotic support is terrific.
This is the second pair of Orthoheel sandals that I've bought from Skymall. Best sandals with a built in arch I've ever worn.
These are so good for my foot problem. Very comfy too.
These are the best shoes ever! You will love them! I have been wearing these sandals for years and highly recommend them.
Put these on the minute I got them and worn them ever since. Never a problem on my feet at all! I have had them about 3 weeks now. My Plantar Fasciitis has improved dramatically with these flip flops! It rarely bothers me at all. My only complaint is...please make these in gray, white and navy!!!!!!!
They are better than the flat sandal. That's about all I can say.
I bought these sandals a month ago and am so happy with them that I wear them everywhere. The pain is also diminishing and I hope to be able to wear normal shoes in another month or so. However, I will continue to wear these sandals wherever the dress code allows.
The minute I unwrapped my sandals and put them on, I noticed how good they felt. I wear them exclusively. This is my second pair. My husband bought a pair as well (Men's) and he loves them.
My husband has PF and he wore these at the beach for a month-worked really well for him!
Not pleased. I wear orthotic sandals and these were the most uncomfortable that I have tried. I sent them back.
I've been wearing these new sandals for a month now and have seen a great improvement in my posture. For years I had been wearing plain old flip flops down here in Florida and saw my feet going bad and my posture following. As soon as I tried these sandals I knew they would take a bit of getting used to because they are made for the correct alignment of feet, hips and spine. The first week they felt weird and uncomfortable, but I kept wearing them because I knew I would get used to them and overall, my body would appreciate them. Now I love them. They are nicer looking than my flip flops from the mall and I can wear them with my nicer clothing as well.
These sandals work very well to give support for plantar fasciitis. I usually have to walk with orthotics in my shoes, however I am able to walk in these sandals without pain!
A lifesaver! This is my second time ordering the plantar fasciitis sandals because they have been so comfortable. I have a hard time finding shoes I can wear more than one day at a time and these are perfect. I have recommended the sandals to friends.
These shoes hurt my feet so bad that I returned them.
This is my second pair. I put many miles on my last pair, but they didn't hold up to my puppy. He's a chewer. When I walk around the house to long without arch support my foot begins to hurt. The moment I put on these sandals the pain is gone. Great support. I walk my dogs on a 1.1 mile track and these hold up fantastic.
