My initial review was 4/1/2014 and I gave the Patricia a 5 star. I'm changing that to just 3 stars because after wearing inside my home for about two to three months the arch support area flattens out. My knees started to ache while walking around my home (I've never had my knees ever ache before), especially going up and down stairs so I compared the ones I was wearing to the new ones in my closet (I had purchased 3 pairs for indoor use) and that is when I really noticed how flat the arch support area had become. I'm now on my last pair of the Patricia and when the arch area flattens out they too will have to be thrown away! Out of all the styles of Vionic I've purchased over the years this style has been the only one with a problem and of course, it is way past the 30 day return policy time frame!! I guess I will have to go back to wearing the flipflop style indoors which are not great during the winter months!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

THEY ARE THE BEST
By Sassy Sue
from Nova Scotia
I bought these sandals in gold and they are just super comfortable. I have now ordered another pair in black and can't wait for them to arrive.Leather would be nice, but I am not having any problems so far. I just returned from a five week vacation and I wore them practically every day.Friends have shown an interest in buying them also.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Nice but leather would be better
I ordered these in white and they are comfortable once you are used to the built in orthotics. I own several pairs of Orthaheel and Vionic Orthaheel shoes and sandals. These are also fairly stylish for orthotic sandals. I recently went on a trip to New York City and wore them quite often and we did a considerable amount of walking. They are comfortable for the most part but if they were leather they would be more comfortable - after several hours of wearing they do make your feet fairly hot because they are not leather. I hope that they start to make more sandals in leather as that is simply superior quality and allows your foot to breath where the straps touch your foot. I agree with the other reviewer who requested that Orthaheel make more sandals/shoes in leather. Please do that and I too will be happy!! I will recommend them but with the proviso that if they were in leather they'd be better (there is no such choice to recommend with conditions ;)
I now have two pairs of Orthaheel sandals - I have the "Rosemary" model in a beautiful coral shade as well. These are cushy and kind to feet in the first wear - plus a lovely purple shade...delicate and feminine, something you don't always get in comfortable shoes! I can't wait to buy some other models.
I would buy this product again and again

This is the best sandal ever.....previous sandals I have purchased from shopping malls, shoe stores, do not compare. I have walked miles in these and they do not rub when my feet get hot. THEY ARE JUST PERFECT.

I wear these daily around the house - they are sooo comfortable. I purchased them in lavender and absolutely love the colour. Would definitely recommend these as a stylish, comfortable sandal for casual or dressy.

I purchased a size 7 in black and it fits true to size. I wore them outside recently and did about two hours of walking with total comfort. It is usually very difficult for me to find sandals (even in the Orthaheel line) that don't give me blisters or rub my feet the wrong way, so these sandals impressed me. I appreciate the soft lining on the inside of the straps. The footbed is also soft. I appreciate how the velcro stays put -- I adjusted it once or twice to fit my feet (my left foot is a little wider due to a bunion) and have not had to readjust the straps or fiddle with the straps since. I can stand and walk in these sandals without the usual ankle/knee pain that results when wearing non-orthotic shoes. Thank you for these sandals, I plan to wear them all summer!

This is my first pair of Vionic sandals, but definitely not the last! I purchased these in bronze as a Showstopper and am extremely glad I did! They are the most comfortable sandal/shoe I have ever owned. The host recommended you wear them a little at a time, but I have been wearing them around the house for hours at a time and no problems.So I decided to try them at work and they are still great! I had double knee surgery and could not find anything for my feet that would not make my legs and feet sore. These Vionic sandals feel like I am walking on clouds. They are so comfortable that you sometimes forget that you are wearing anything on your feet. My legs are no longer tired and usually when I get home from work, all I want to do is take off my shoes and relax. With my new sandals, I continue to wear them until I go to bed. Cannot wait to purchase my next pair!

Too bad they're not leather
They are comfortable and look great. It is disappointing though that they are plastic instead of leather. Plastic is not as comfortable and does nor stretch or breath. I looked at the show stopper today ( Nancy) and decided not to get it as they were not leather either. Please make these sandals in leather and you will have a great product. I would only buy again ...and would buy lots if in leather.
