Ratings & Reviews
I love these shoe expect?
I love these shoes don't get me wrong there very comfortable and my feet dont hurt at the end of the day. They also keep my feet cool.But the netting on them started tearing I bought them in Feb 2017 and in May I notice them ripping I would think that as much money as i paid for them they would of last longer. You need to fix the netting so its more durable. I have recommended these shoes to my friends just fix the problem I had
On my second pair
I'm getting ready to buy my third pair. I have severe arthritis in my metatarsals and can only wear most shoes with my orthotics. With my Ions, however, I was amazed to discover I don't need my orthotics at all! When I wore them to my podiatrist and told him that I didn't need the orthotics in these particular shoes, he asked me what they wear and when I told him, he said, "I've heard of those. Let me see them." After examining them closely, he remarked that they really WERE great shoes. <br>Each time I get a new pair, my older pair is assigned garden duty because I find that my feet are more stable on uneven ground when I'm wearing them.
I will be buying these shoes again
Received my shoes today they really feel good have knee issues and hip issues only drawback I have is that I need a size 12 woman so I had to order a man 10 I wish you would start making a 12 women
Absolutely love this shoe!
I have plantar fasciitis and this shoe is so comfortable!
I will buy another pair
My shoes have help me. I have a bad knee and it really help. I wear my shoes from morning until night. They are light and they wear great. Planning on buying another pair. I do tell everyone about. I'm in pain management and the dr want me to bring a book. Will do it this visit.
Super Comfortable & Supportive!
These shoes are so comfortable and supportive. I hate to take them off! The only downside is that because the soles are so thick, driving is difficult due to not being able to "feel" when using the gas/brake pedal. I will definitely be buying again.
NO MORE FOOT PAIN!
by Maggie Sport
I have tried numerous things to fixed my plantar fasciitis and heel pain that I had had for more than a year. This included custom orthotics, a shot in my foot (I will never do this again) PT on my foot for 20 sessions. I was taking pain medicine every day for over a year. Still had excruciating pain. I broke down and went back to my doctor and said I have to do something about this pain. I made an appointment before I had order the shoes. They came very quickly and I started to wear them the next day. My feet were sore for the next 5-7 days after wearing the shoes. I thought oh great just more "snake oil" these aren't going to help me and I was glad that I did the 30 day trial so I could return them. But something amazing happen at about the 7th day of wearing the shoes my foot pain was much less and I didn't take any pain medicine that day. Each day that I have been wearing these shoes the foot pain has decreased dramatically. Before wearing the shoes by the end of the day my pain level was a 10 and now it has been just a few days over two weeks and my pain level is 1 maybe a 2. I decided that I would keep the doctor appointment I had made. His next step was to put my foot in a boot, and then surgery to follow if I didn't get any relief. I showed the doctor these shoes and he said that I would be much better off wearing these shoes instead of the boot. I think I have dodged the possibility of having surgery on my foot, thank goodness. Needless to say I'm keeping the shoes after the 30 days trial. I will purchase another pair when I scrape enough cash together. My daughter is a nurse and she is on her feet 12-13 hours a day. I told her about these shoes and I think she might be getting some to try for herself.
Love This Shoe So Much, Would like it in Different Color
by TRKR 2017
After My Total Right Knee Replacement Surgery a new athletic shoe would be required for my recovery. After a great deal of research I selected this shoe. I've been totally happy with my purchase. I needed a good shoe for walking, standing and overall support. Would love another pair in a different color.
I will continue to buy these shoes
These shoes are awesome. I have arthritis in my knees and could not find shoes that helped. I am on my feet 8-9 hrs a day on cement floors and the pain was getting unbearable. Within 3 days, I had no pain in my knees and was able to do things I hadn't done in years. I can go up and down stairs easily and go up and down hills when exercising. I will definitely be buying these shoes again.
So difficult to keep clean
I love the shoes, they help relieve the pain from plantar fasciitis; I don't love how difficult they are too keep clean. The mesh part traps dirt and dust and won't clean up.
Shoe seems heavy to me
This shoe seems heavy to me although another review states that it is light. I haven't made up my mind yet as to whether the shoe is helping; just ordered some orthotics and will see if that helps. I had fusion of two joints in my right foot due to arthritis and 4 hammertoes straightened out in 2014 and I still have pain in that foot - even without a shoe - due to neuropathy after the surgery. I would love it if the orthotics help me so that I can wear a supportive shoe. Wish me luck!
I love these shoes. My foot Dr. said that they were perfect.
Yes, these are so comfortable. I've never had a tennis shoe fit so well. Year ago last Feb. I broke both of my feet and when I went to the foot Dr he was amazed at the shoe and said that these were the perfect shoe to wear. He said that they were a little costly. My complaint is it takes too long to get them after you order them. But they have me 'cause I can't find any other shoes. I have tried New Balance & Sketchers. New Balance I'm buying every two months and Sketchers I have about 6 pairs that I've tried to wear & they are so uncomfortable. I guess I should have learned after the first pair!!!
Most comfortble shoes i ever owend
I am in Vegas walking 5 miles a day and I love it
I will buy again
I have had mine for a yr and there great .. I stand for 71/2 hours on concrete floors and work in a collage dinning room they need to b skid resistant my only wish is that they had more colors to choose from ...
great for walking, too clunky for running
by Crazy for G.D.
This is a clunkier shoe. It is not for athletics at all. Very solidly made for other uses.
a Godsend for Plantar Fasciitis sufferers.
This will be my second pair of gdefy shoes for Plantar Fasciitis. I had a closet full of shoes billed as good for PF none of which quite worked. This is the first pair that made me feel like a normal, healthy, walker. Not only are they comfortable, the fit is perfect (8.5xw), I can walk all day over rough terrain, they absorb shock, and they are surprisingly light for the work that they do.
I would buy this one again
by Jane Hoerner
These are the only shoes I can wear when plantar fasciitis hits. So comfy. But they are clunky looking. I wish they came in better colors too.
by Nature Girl
This is the most comfortable walking/running shoe I have ever owned. They felt great right out of the box. When I forget I'm even wearing shoes, I know I've found a perfect shoe for me. However, the fabric portion of the shoes at the flex points behind the big toes began to tear after only about six months of moderate use. Were it not for this apparent flaw in the material, I would have given these shoes five shining stars.
I will for sure buy again and again!!!
I’m in love!!!! Finally I have a shoe that works for the pain I have in my feet! <br><br>I loveeeee these shoes!!! Did I say I loveee these shoes!!! :) I will always be a return customer!!! <br><br>I did a Google search for: gym shoes for hurting feet and this company popped up.... I’m so happy I didn’t give up on looking... I love the non-impact feel on heel... and now I can get back to walking proper again... <br><br>I’ve never spent this much for a gym shoe before and yes I’ll always love a discount at times when they happen... but with this shoe it’s worth it!!! <br><br>I’m a customer for life!!!
I have lower disc pain & not able to walk far or for long. I got these shoes, put my own orthotics in & in 2 days, I was walking straight and the pain was decreasing. After a few more days I walk straight and tall and no longer have pain. I plan to order another pair in a different color. It sounds "too good to be true" & I am not easily swayed, but after trying everything else I figured I had nothing to lose & I don't want surgery. Truly love these shoes!
back to buy again
I've been buying Gravity Defyer for a few years now and I'm not even sure how many pair I've bought. At least 4. I have this style currently and it's been working so well, I got too comfortable and started wearing other shoes to work. Well, that was okay for a while but then I started having trouble with my plantar fasciitis again so I'm back in my Gravity Defyers again. And since they're a little worse for wear, I'm back to buy another pair. I'm normally pretty cheap when it comes to shoes but these are well worth the expense.
I found Comfort and much needed support in this shoe.
I like this shoe. I have weak knees and my ankles roll in, so finding a shoe that helps me walk without pain and discomfort is a pleasure. These are supportive and allow me to wear my orthotics with them. I would tecommend them to anyone who needs a lot of support.
I put it on and felt like running.
by Ms. Big Foot
I had these shoes for two days. Day one, they weren't great because I put my orthotic in without the provided innersole. My feet hurt. Day two, I put back the included innersole with my orthotics on top and spontaneously started running. Running and walking fast felt effortless. I was bouncing along the sidewalk with none of my usual foot pains. I noticed that when walking slowly in these shoes, I didn't get the bounce.Therefore, it made me feel like walking fast and I got lots of good exercise all day. When I got home, I usually leave my shoes at the front door. But, I found these so comfortable, I didn't want to take them off. The innersoles made all the difference in absorbing shock. A little heavy, but once I got used to the weight, I love this shoe. Will buy more.
I will definitely purchase these again.
I wear them most of the time. They are very comfortable, and I place great importance on comfort. Very sturdy. Someone noticed them in a store, and asked me what they are like. I told him that once you put your foot in them, you would mortgage your house to buy more. I am ordering more today. I have recommended them to everybody I know.
by Tee Tee
I needed a comfortable shoe because I suffer from Planter Fasciitis in one foot. My job requires me to be on my feet six hours a day, five days a week and I had been searching for a shoe to accommodate my needs. The moment I tried this shoe on, I knew they were the ones for me. I absolutely love the trampoline type feeling in the heel when I walk. I would highly recommend anyone to give these a try. I will definitely be considering buying another pair for outside of work as well!
