Ratings & Reviews
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.
Best Atheletic Shoe I have ever owned!
I have arthritis in my ankle from a talus break about 10 years ago. I dreaded the thought of walking around Disneyland for 5 days, knowing how much pain I would be in. I worried I wouldn't be able to walk the whole time and would have to sit out. I walked the entire time! I wouldn't say I was pain free, but the pain I felt was tired "Disneyland" feet, not from the pain in the ankle from the injury. I am 100% sold on these shoes, I am back to try other types of shoes. I have never written a review, and I knew after my first day at the park I would be writing one as soon as I got back! Thank you! It is more than a shoe to me, I am making memories because I can walk more without pain!
I love my shoes!!!!
I have worn gravity defyers for years. This style in particular for 3 years. I never wear anything else. No ankle or knee pain and no more plantar fasciitis!! Your have to wear them a little at a time for a few days. I wore one pair every day for 2 years and they still look new!
Love these shoes my feet feels so much better plan on buying more
I love these shoes they help my feet I can walk again. I plan on buying more they do costs but boy they do help I am on my feet all day.
My knees are happy!
I had been suffering knee pain for the past month, and I even had to ice my knees a couple of times for the first time in my 46-years of life. These shoes truly are wonderful. I choose them very time when I go out and walk my 87-pound golden retriever. I highly recommend these shoes.
Best shoe ever
I walk 6-8 miles a day.....was experiencing foot pain and hip pain.....but no more....these shoes are the best I have ever owned!!!
Most comfortable athletic shoe I have ever worn!
by Austin Texas Native
Excellent shoe for anyone with foot problems. Love the stability and cushioning!
Best Athletic shoe there is !!
I had Achilles tendon problem. Wore a medical boot for 3 mths, I needed to find something with full 2" heel height to help ease that. These are the best athletic shoes I have ever bought & I was an athlete for many yrs, I have a high instep & arch & wide width across toe area. Also sometimes even in other popular, expensive athletic shoes, the depth of the toe box is not tall enough and puts pressure on toe nail area, even though shoe is a wide width, NOT the case with these. I ordered my regular size 9 1/2 wide and they fit perfectly. I have expensive arch inserts, but did not need them with this shoe. NEARLY PERFECTION in every way u could want.
In Love these Shoes
by Kelly the Home Depot associate
I work at Home Depot in the garden center. I've got a bad knee and by the time I get home my entire body was in pain. I did a lot research and decided I would spend the money and try them out. After one 8 hour shift it was amazing. My knee didn't hurt, I had more energy, plus it felt like I was walking on a trampoline all day. I don't feel the cement, rocks or anything else I walk over. I actually have been tell everyone I know about them and spending the extra money is well worth it.
My miracle shoes
by Patricia F
Love these shoes. I can't tell you how much pain & pressure they relieve from my knees and hips. If I could wear them to bed I would. My only complaint would be I wished that the toe area would be a little wider. Other than that, these are great shoes and would definitely buy more. Very lightweight too.
Best shoe ever made!
I have so much foot and ankle pain. I would hurt so bad every time I walked, whether just around the house or for long walks, I was contemplating giving up my walks. I couldn't find a doctor that could help. These athletic shoes saved me. I cannot wear the other styles but I love the athletic style. They are fantastic. They seem to run a little small so I order a size 10 instead of 91/2. I have recommended these shoes to others and have had the pleasure to witness the benefits when they also loved them. Eternally grateful to the inventor of these great shoes. Thank you with all my heart!
I will buy this shoe again
I work in a hospital and I am on my feet all day. From the minute I put these shoes on it was wonderful! The Iokia quick straps make it easy since I have arthritis in my hands and feet and it is easy to put on and take off. Thank you again and again.
I would definitely be buying more sneakers from Gravity Defy
Best sneakers I ever wore.Bought Ion app 2 months ago and helped my planters facitais tremendously..Buying my second pair . Would highly recommend to others..Told my knee doctor and he's buying a couple of pair and passing the word around to his patients...
I will buy this shoe again.
I love this shoe! I am buying my second pair. I'm so happy with them. I work on concrete floors full time and they lasted 6 months. Usually shoes only last 3 or 4 months. My knees ankles and legs did not ache every evening! Well worth the investment. I read reviews that they run small, so I ordered 1/2 size bigger. Perfect!
I bought these for Christmas gift for myself and I'm finally coming around for a review on them after wearing them they're comfortable and it feels like walking on a marshmallow I don't have heel pain I'm thinking of buying a second pair there one of my favorite so far I can walk fast and stay on my feet standing for hours I also suffer from Heel Spurs these are my sneakers for now on love them
At first i was not impressed. My toes were even sore, even w
At first I wasn't impressed. But after about the 4th time, my toes didn't hurt anymore and my hips didn't hurt. It was great to walk without hip pain, so I could walk longer. They have absolutely enabled me to walk longer, better and happier.
Feel great, did not hold up
These feel wonderful and helped my feet so much. I am a nurse and am on my feet all day. However, the left shoe heel had to be glued back on almost immediately, and after only 6 months, there is quite a bit of wear. They look as if I have worn them a year or more. I tried contacting customer service about the heel, and did not receive a response.
Improved knee pain
4 stars because shipping took months. They look like Frankenstein shoes at first but the new colors are cute. I am 5 ' 10". These made me over 6 feet. So if you want height...<br>I have horrible plantar fasciitis and knee pain and am desperate for a non surgical cure. <br><br>After one day of wear my knee pain was virtually gone by morning. <br><br>Heel still hurts but definitely less. And swelling is down. <br><br>Will continue to wear and hope the price comes down before I need another pair.<br><br>One note..I felt off balance a few times. Would worry about any one with fall risk.
Mesh Rips Easily
I have purchased 2 pairs of these shoes. I had horrible foot pain from plantar fasciitis and I'm a dog walker, by the end of the day I was unable to even walk to my kitchen. So I thought - let me give this brand a try because I liked the springy mechanics. I would say it took about a week to become totally pain free! I was so surprised! I quickly bought another pair of this same shoe and I also have 2 other pairs of G-Defy shoes (one of those is a bit too tight to wear comfortably all day). This particular model is the shoe I love. My only complaint is that the mesh in both pairs quickly developed rips during normal wear. I keep wearing them because they took away my pain but they look really bad! For $150 I expected the construction to be durable - and everything except the mesh has remained in excellent condition! I'm buying 2 more pair on sale but I really wish they would resolve the mesh ripping problem.
Arch : 3% said it High Arch
Width : 1% said it Feels too wide
