Ratings & Reviews
These shoes are totally amazing!! I could walk on my feet be
A nurse turned CEO of my own company. After years of nursing then walking in hospitals in management in heels the ball of my foot was gone and I was "walking on bones"! Ball of foot atrophy (same thing distance runners experience). I had over 50 pairs of almost new shoes that I could NOT wear!ðŸ˜• Got these 6 weeks ago and now wear 90% of the time. Have more pairs on back order that I'm waiting for. I couldn't do activities with friends or grandbabies anymore. Saw multiple doctors to no avail. Collagen injection are $15,000 for this condition! These have been life changing. Defy Gravity please make my new shoes faster!!! People are tired of seeing these. ðŸ˜ŠðŸ˜Š lol
I would buy the product over and over again
I like this shoes but they NEVER have them in stock size 6 W
Excellent shoes but
I have worked food service for 30 hrs and am on my feet all day on concrete floors. I have a lot of issues with my feet. Plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, beginning of bunions and arthritis in BOTH feet. I am a shoe returner. I buy them, try them and return them because they don't help my feet, but the Gravity Defyer shoes actually works. I thought the shoes were pricey but bought them anyway. My feet never felt so much better. It took A few days for them to "kick" in. Amazing. I couldn't believe how better my feet felt, the only issue I had was the same as another person. The netting at the front sides of the shoes were tearing after a few months. According to people I know who head the Akron Marathon, shoes are like tires and should be replaced after 3,000 miles because they start to break down and lose their effectiveness.
I difinely buy this shoe again
I wear this shoes everyday. I've had back surgery and have arthritis in hip and knees and they do help
LOVE these Shoes
These are the MOST comfortable shoes I have ever bought. I'm a cashier and standing in one place for hours on end use to be so pain full. Now I can work all day with NO pain and feel great after my 8 hour shift. I love these shoes so much, I bought another pair for weekend use and a pair for my daughter who wears them to work also.
a few yrs
I have been working food service and have heel spurs and arthritis in both feet and right hip .. I love the shoes BUT after a few month the heels wore out and was no longer able to wear them at work cause id slip .. I do wish they made different colors or different styles .. not so expensive so i could afford more to change into .. other wise great shoe
I have plantar fasciitis, and have been in horrible pain for at least 6 months. I've tried 4 different pairs of sneakers and padding. Nothing kept me from the pain. I am on my feet all day at work, and walk at least 5-8 miles there everyday. I found myself limping by the end of the day, and having to ice my heels every night. I have had these for a month now, and I don't have the pain at all during the day...no more limping. I don't have to ice my heels at night any longer!! But unfortunitly, it's only been a month and the corners were my feet bend are stating to pull apart.
by Annie the mail woman
I'm a letter carrier with arch problems. These shoes are great for work. Because I use them for work and I walk a lot they wear out quickly. Also the mesh where the shoe bends as you step, breaks easily. Other than that these shoes are the best investment you can make specially when you suffer from heel spurs.
I own 2 pair and thrilled with the shoes. Makes a very comf
I have been very happy with ALL your shoes have been a customer for several years thank you
I just received my first pair and am ordering a second pair
Usually I wear SASS sandals; however, I love to go barefoot. Lately I cannot walk barefoot or with my sandals. I put these shoes on for the first time and could walk everywhere. They are so very comfortable and I have no pain with them.
I will definitelypurchase another pair
I have issues with my Knees, Tendonitis of the Tibial and Plantars Fasciitis I ware them all day at work and my feet and legs feel wonderful at the end of the day. It did take a couple of days to get accustom to them.
I bought a pair of tennis 3 yrs ago...they are very comforta
Walking and gym on treadmill
I was able to work with my bad knees, those shoes saved me!
Great shoes for jobs that keep you on your feet all day!
Every color on the way!
Wow! I have searched all my life for a pair shoes like this. I'll probably get a pair in every color it's like walking on air it's saved pain in my foot my knee and my hip even my broken toe they fit perfectly I can walk so far in these and I'm Ia heavy person you cannot go wrong buying the shoes thank you for making them
by dog groomer
Not the prettiest shoe since it has such a thick sole but when your feet hurt, WHO CARES, nice colors but they look huge....so worth it, my feet are in heaven!!!!!
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!
