Orthofeet 861 comfort

Reviewer: kat from Brookings, OR
I have high arches so was looking for a shoe that had good arch support. These are to be worn while traveling and walking on cobblestones. That is a true test. Have been wearing these shoes every day and they are very comfortable and not at all "ortho" looking.

Reviewer: Vivian from San Francisco
I own many pair of Orthofeet. This new addition is particularly good for longer walks as the adjustable strap is well-placed to control the fit toward the back of the shoe. At first I was apprehensive about the look of the shoe but the comfort won me over. With the right length pants the strap doesn't even show.
Wears this shoe: Whenever I am headed out for a longer stroll or to work.
Orthofeet 862 comfortable mary jane shoe

Reviewer: Lane H. from Southern Oregon
This is a comfortable shoe for a wide foot. The lining is soft and the strap fits in just the right place (in another brand I tried the strap was too high on the instep). There's plenty of room on the strap to accommodate a high instep. I got this pair (black) after I got the same model in another color (tan).
Wears this shoe: with slacks and crop pants; not sure how it would look with a skirt
Orthofeet 710 sizes

I first ordered a 9 1/2 per suggestion to order 1/2 size larger and my normal width of WW. I did return for a size 9 wide and it still fits my orthodic. So I would not size up and just order your normal size and consider ordering a size less in the width, or you will slip out of them.
