Adjustable strap shoes are shoes that are secured to the foot using some type of fastening device that can be customized to the wearer's foot. Types of adjustable straps include hook and loop fasteners or buckles.
Orthotics are inserts placed into footwear to maximize comfort or position the foot to assist in treatment of a medical condition.

I like these shoes. I have a bunion, which usually bothers me in the end of my long day at work. These shoes are comfortable to wear. They are smooth but could benefit from more support in the middle part of the shoe (kind of loose).

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.
