I have recently had to start wearing Vionics flip flops because constant wear of sandals (Florida) has left me with various foot problems. Since the Vionics work so well for my high arches, I have been on the search for non-flip flop options. I came accross these and was really happy with the style. Many orthopedic shoes are not trendy and are much "older". I am in my 20's!. The shoe is too small. I wear an 8 in Vionic flip flops so I ordered an 8.5 in these shoes. I am sending them back for a 9. But I love the style, color, and comfort of the shoe.
