Sandals are open footwear consisting, in its most basic design; of a sole which is fastened or held to the foot by straps or thongs, leaving most or all of the foot exposed. Sandals are primarily a warm weather type of footwear and can be classified based on the function and activity for which they are intended or by their design and style. Casual and walking sandals are mainly designed for comfort, while sport sandals are mostly intended to provide support, traction and performance. Fashionable and dress sandals for women may have many of the style variations found on other shoe styles such as medium to high heels, platforms, toe covering etc. Other styles of sandals include, but are not limited to; flip flops, thongs, ankle strap sandals, fisherman sandals, wedge sandals, etc.
Drew Sandy Great Sandals that actually fit my orthotics

These shoes are so attractive and I am so excited to find real sandals that I can wear "barefoot" but still benefit from wearing my orthotics. They seem a bit narrower than I would normally be comfortable with but the elastic at the top of the shoe makes that inconsequential. They are very comfortable!

This was my second pair of Drew shoes. The first was a lace up style that I bought to wear with my prescription orthotics. They are like heaven to my feet so I bought the Sahara style. I love the Sahara but my orthotics do not do well in them. They fit in but are a little high for the foot bed and my heel wanders off to the side of the shoe where it is higher and is uncomfortable. However, the Sahara is supportive enough and has enough of an arch that I wear them with the included inserts and they are fine for many hours of wear. They are also very attractive shoes and go nicely with shorts. I am very happy with this brand and have recently ordered two more pairs of them. It's nice after all these years to NOT have to wear bulky athletic shoes to be comfortable and finally have feet that don't hurt. My sciatica has improved tremendously as well.

As my feet become wider as I age, trying to find a comfortable shoe is a challenge. The Drew 6E is the highest quality and best fit of the four brands that I have tried.

I have extremely flat & narrow feet; one leg 1" shorter than other. Was able to insert an orthotic & heel pad under removable footed. Now I can wear sandals! Love them.

I am pretty happy with this sandal. My orthotics guy recommended it. There are a few minor issues for me: (1) The shoe squeaked like crazy for a few days but gratefully stopped just when everyone at work was about to ban me from wearing them at the office! (2) The velcro heel back strap is too long and the extra length rubs against my opposite ankle. I am thinking of having a shoe repair place fix that for me. (3) I regret ordering the wide size. I had to do this since my orthotic was made to fit a wide show. But I'm not using the full orthotic so I could have gotten away with a normal width. My foot looks a bit lost in there.One other note for orthotics wearers: I prefer wearing these with my half orthotics which allows me to keep the manaufacturers shoe bed intact. To use with my full orthotic I had to remove the entire bed which is what these are designed for, but then you lose out on the comfort of the cork and memory foam. So if you don't have a half size orthotic, you may not like these as much as I do.
