Dr. Comfort Men’s Mike Multi Diabetic Boat Shoes

Dr. Comfort Men's Mike Multi Diabetic Boat Shoes Review


These bad boys are one of the best pairs you could probably find out there.

It suits for a variety of problems, and will help diabetics, ankle-aches and fascia pains alike.

They provide you with both style and comfort, and are one of the only leather shoes you can find

in the orthopedics market.



The shoes are wonderful. The podiatrist was very impressed. They provide all the support you could want and they are very stylish. The leather is top quality.


I needed to buy a new pair of casual shoes because my old ones were hurting my back plus I’m a type 2 Diabetic so I looked online and came across these to give them a try and I love them!


K-Swiss Men's K-SWISS ST329 CASUAL SHOES Review


K-Swiss are known for their great products, and they did a fantastic job in the orthotics market as well.

The ST329′ are a great example of a comfortable, light-weight and stylish pair,

they come in various sizes and colors, suits for both men and women and can be used for numerous events,

from casuals to sports.



I would recommend these shoes to anyone, but especially to those who have foot pain such as neuropathy. A good friend of mine visited me recently and had a pair of K-Swiss shoes on. I liked the look of them, and seeings how we wear the same size, my friend had me try his on. As I was trying them on, my friend told me that this is the 4th pair of these shoes he has had over several years. He is a waste management truck driver. (garbage man) I slipped the shoes on and could not believe how comfortable and light they were on my feet. The next day, I was on line ordering a pair for myself. I have been wearing them since the day they arrived! So happy with these shoes and will recommend them whenever I have the opportunity.

Hush Puppies Men’s Gil Slip-On

Hush Puppies Men's Gil Slip-On Review

Another great pair here, this one for Hush Puppies.

With their manmade soles and being made from leather they might be the best middle ground between style and comfort,

so if you’re looking for style and comfort – you might want to consider these as your next pair.

They come in white, brown and black, so you can choose your desired color.



I chose this rating because the they were much better than what I expected. The quality and workmanship are great. By the way these are not geriatric shoes only. They are extremely comfortable. I do wear an orthotic inside my shoe, and it fit very well. I was able to wear them all day on the first day. If you need to be on your feet all day, or have to wear an orthotic for your feet these are excellent. If you have or know someone that has back problems and has a difficult time tying their shoelaces, or people that have edema of the feet (swelling) these shoes will accommodate them because of the velcro strap. I have no reservation in recommending these to a friend, family member, or a patient.


Neat Zori Orthotic Sandal

Neat Zori Orthotic Sandal Review

This Neat Zori pair is ergonomically designed for a quick recovery.

They come with a Stabilizing insole, help reduce feet fatigue and have great arch and heel support.

With the convenient price tag and many benefits – we do recommend looking at them.



These shoes are great! They’re unisex so I had to get a smaller size than I would normally get. They have relieved all the problems I usually have with shoes of this type. My feet feel great even after wearing them all day long. I’ve never been able to say that about any sandal/flip-flop before. I have high arches and plantar fasciitis and these do the trick! Love them!



SOLE Men’s Sport Flips

SOLE Men's Sport Flips Review

The SOLE sport flips are another great example of a all-in-one pair.

They are really comfortable and you can wear them basically anyone on a summers day.

A rubber insole with a great heel support !



These are a total score for a guy with plantar fasciitis. I can only speak for my own experience, but they are with out a doubt the most comfortable things I put on my feet. I can wear them all day with out any heel pain popping up. The shoes I wear all have expensive inserts and can be worn comfortably. But these SOLE flips put them all to shame. I would wear them to work if I wouldn’t look like a total dork wearing a suite and tie with flip flops. When I come home the shoes come off and these come on.

La Plume Women’s Jen

La Plume Women's Jen Review

Now for our ladies, one of the best comfort shoes we’ve found during our review were the La Plume’s right here.

Not only they are extremely comfortable, but they come in tons of colors to make your choice a bit easier.

The buckle you can see in the picture is adjustable, the insole is made of rubber and the shoe of leather,

so a great material mix is included.



I have another pair of Jen sandals that I have worn close to daily for the spring and summer months for the past 3 years. I love them, they are so comfortable. I have nerve damage in my foot and toes, as well as edema. It’s difficult to find a comfortable shoe. The buckles allow me to adjust depending on the amount of pain and swelling. My pair was wearing out, these new ones fit as comfortably as the old.

Vionic with Orthaheel Tide II

Vionic with Orthaheel Tide II Review

Vionic, previously known as Orthaheel as a brand with many products in the orthotics industry.

They cover anything from bad-ankle supports to heel and plantar fascia support and are a brand name.

From our experience with vionic shoes – they never disappoint, and are very durable as well.

All in all this pair is Highly recommended.


Am currently experienceing plantar fascitis and have tried every type of shoe insert….with little or no results. We have hardwood floors in our house. Walking around in regular flip flops/slippers made my foot issues even worse. Received these over the weekend and absolutely love them. So comfortable and provides enough arch/heel support where my foot pain is almost gone.
I would recommend to anyone….TRY THESE!


Vionic with Orthaheel Bella II

Vionic with Orthaheel Bella II Review


Another Vionic pair has made it to the final, they’re really rockin’ it 🙂

You’ve got the Orthaheel technology here, a great and recommended support for your heel and arch,

a rubber insole and a metalic upper coating.

We highly recommend reading more reviews and considering these as your next flip flops.



Great for PF

Great sandals! Orthaheel was recommended to me because of my plantar fasciitis. I was having a heck of a time finding sandals that were attractive, age appropriate AND good for my feet. I first bought these sandals in black from another website (QVC). I bought these in my search for additional colors. These particular sandals are more of a coral than red. They fit great and I can wear them all day without foot pain (I’m a teacher).

Orthaheel Women’s Relax Slipper

Orthaheel Women’s Relax Slipper Review


Our last reviewed model is from Orthaheel as well (now, Vionic),

Those are more of a home flips – and boy they are comfy as they look.

They provide a necessary extra grip for your feet to align properly, and have the known Orthaheel touch to them

which provides effective heel and arch support to deal with plantar fasciitis.



I recently discovered I have plantar fascitis. After researching some shoes that are supposed to be able to help PF, I found Orthaheels… My life will never be the same! Sounds cheesy, but I’m very serious that after wearing ONLY orthaheels for a month, doing the stretches and icing, my PF is gone! I purchased the slippers a month ago after my doctor said to never go barefoot at home. These are very comfortable, I love them!



Advantages of Having The Right Orthopedics During Recovery

Having the right pair of orthopedics can get you extremely relieved and make your recovery quick and effective.

The shoes will help your feet align properly and reduce pains you deal with on daily basis – you will gradually say goodbye to that first-step annoying ache.

But choosing the right orthopedics can be tricky… so we gathered some points that you should really look into before making your choice.


Choosing the Orthopedic Shoes That are Best For you

There are some criteria that should influence your choice of orthopedics, we really recommend you

to note the following points –

  • Know your Feet – Do you have a high arch or low arch ? Are you suffering from flat feet ? Do you need extra soft cushioning ? If you don’t know how to answer those questions than you should get more familiar with your feet – do consult your doctor.
  • Size – I am always surprised of how many people simply do not know to point on their exact shoe size. Remember – for a great fit you will need to choose the best size.
  • Read Reviews – There are some real, actual people who bought pretty much every product that is offered on Amazon. Reviews there are a gold mine, you can easily find information on every mentioned model and plan accordingly.
  • Ask Questions – Have a question about a specific model ? You can ask a question on Amazon products pages – and you will get an answer from the manufacturer itself at most cases, use this powerful tool to be sure of your expectations of the product.


And finally…

You have a lot of methods that you could use to battle plantar fasciitis – and wearing the right orthopedic shoes

is a recommended action to reduce pains and allow a quick recovery process.

Please tell us which shoes helped you to get over the disease, sharing this knowledge can really help people deal with PF effectively,


And always remember, we’re here for you,
