This was my first orthotic shoe purchase to help with my plantar fasciitis and I was not dissapointed! This shoe is not only attractive and extremely comfortable, but most importantly, it completely stops my foot pain when I wear them (which is all the time). Every now and again I may walk for a few minutes barefoot in my house, which causes my feet to hurt. I put these on, and literally in about 10 steps, I have no more pain! They are the miracle I have been looking for...truely amazing. I have not used my custom orthotics in them yet, because I only have 3/4 lenth orthotics and have to go to my local orthotic store to have them made into full length orthotics. I don't think I'll need to use them in these shoes, but it'll be nice to have a spare when I want to wash the removable soles of these sandals. I bought the cigar luxory color, and they do not match the color on this website. I looked at the actual Finn website before ordering and saw that the color was a very dark brown (which is what I wanted) so I went ahead and ordered them . I love the color. In darker lighting, they could even pass for black sandals. I love the little rhinestones on the sandals. They add a little bling and feminine touch to these beautiful sandals. These are definatley expensive shoes, but if you have foot pain, they are definately worth it. Can you imagine NO PAIN...just buy Finn shoes and that will become a reality. I have already bought 2 more Finn sandals (they haven't arrived yet) because of how wonderful they are! So worth the cost!!!!
