So so comfortable. Lightweight. Real support - can tell when I take them off as well as when I wear them. Do make my feet hot on the bottom but I can live with that as long as the material is not harmful to my body. Don't know the research or details on that. Have four pair in various colors and wear them all the time. Did make my leg muscles sore at first but getting better. Do make me stand up straight which is excellent. White soles have to be cleaned often vs. the black soles. Sit it came in Navy Blue.
Wonderful and Versatile Shoes
The color is gorgeous, but wish you would add a metallic shade... pewter, silver. gold or bronze.
They do run very wide, so I have them strapped as tight as possible. They’re also long. I normally wear an 8 1/2 or 9 but take a 10 in your tie shoes. So I ordered a 9 in these and they are a little long. But I LOVE them! I was worried because I need rigid soles and these bend a bit. No problem. I can walk for miles in them and my feet and ankles are fine. Have never been able to wear Birkenstock’s but these were comfy from the moment I put them on. They are perfect for travel. A single pair of shoes for beach, shower, slippers and casual sandals in one. Thinking about getting an additional pair in black as it’s more neutral for travel, but would far prefer a metallic shade which would be both neutral and chic.
Great Casual Shoe
This shoe is wonderful in lots of ways! The width is adjustable. I was afraid an M width would be too narrow for my W feet, but I needed a "knock-around" sandal; so I thought I'd give it a try.
The sole offers stability. I
Great Casual Shoe
(great casual shoe, cont'd) I don't usually buy slides, because of their instability. However, the heel cup in these really helps with the stability, and my feet stay put.
The cushioning is top-notch. I get a "springy" feeling when I walk in this sandal.
I am 54 years old and overweight. I'm amazed at how good walking feels in these sandals.
Today, I am buying my second pair. I chose the pink shade.
I think the name UpBov is weird and a real turn-off. You have to change that.
Most comfortable sandal EVER!
I just ordered my second pair. I got the pink for Spring & Summer. Just ordered the purple and I am sure they will be just as comfortable as the others. I have diabetes & severe neuropathy & these sandals cannot be more comfortable. Love the sale!
Comfortable with an ok fit
I have only worn these for 3 days since they arrived. I like the comfort, so far so good. I will say I am a size 6.5 and got a size 7 and it barely fits, in case anyone is wondering about the fit.
Glad I got them!
I have bilateral achilles tendonitis and pain. These sandals make standing and walking around the house much more comfortable. Initially I wasn't thrilled about the light weight, now I like it very much. I just wish there was another hole in each strap for those of us with narrow feet. I put one in myself, but....... I purchased an 8.5 in the walking shoes, but an 8 in the sandals, and the half size down was perfect for heel and arch.
Comfortable and helpful
I'm impressed with how comfortable these sandals are. This is my first pair of gravity defyer shoes. I have knee pain, especially when standing up or putting weight on the knee while it is bent. After walking in these shoes for a few days it seems like the alignment of my leg is better and everything works somewhat smoother. I was also surprised to find that I walked much faster while wearing them, until it dawned on me, that was because I was slouched and it made me chase after my balance, so now I know to stay straight and slow down :) I am planning to get more pairs in different styles.
These arrived in the mail yesterday. I put them on immediately when I got home from my work day. It was like they knew where my foot hurt and went to work instantly, well w/I a short period of time. I wore them till bedtime and all day today. Totally forgot about the heel pain I’ve suffered with fore the last 8 months. Going to buy another pair.
Made my poor feet feel wonderful straight out of box. Already a lot of compliments.
I have a lot of problems with my feet, have tried many kinds especially in Sandals. I decided to try these, received them Monday put them on and they are Wonderful! I have wide feet also nerve damage in right which moves up the leg, this makes it hard for me to walk & I fall often. These shoes feel WONDERFUL! I did not even have to adjust the straps. I had been thinking about trying a pair of their athletic shoes I know I will now. Thank you Amazon for carrying them & really for the display on my site. The color is also great.
Love them but hot.
These shoes are so comfortable. Very soft and springy. I would call them perfect but they are so so hot! Because of that only 4 stars.
A Pair for Every Activity
I bought 3 pair in case they fit. They fit & feel so incredible that I came back for another pair for gardening. The fit, function, & benefit of these shoes far exceed UpBov's wallet-friendly price.
My 1 beef has nothing to do with construction or function; It's about who gets which colors. ‘Women’s” are lighter colors, usually with a pink-ish option. “Men's” have navy & brown, with no cute color options at all. I wanted brown ones for gardening, but no women's shoe in this model are in darker colors except for the ubiquitous black. I wish GDef would get over their silly gender biased color lines & make shoes in all colors for all people. Some men would appreciate a pink & some women would prefer a darker, not-black, option.
This simple, lightweight, supportive shoe will give your feet some sweet summer soul. You'll need more than one pair, because your feet will want
Soles are covered in stiff plastic bumps that unfortunately add to foot pain
I so wanted to love these sandals! I needed a slip-on with no heel for the extreme Plantar Fasciitis pain I now have. These sandals would be great if only the sole were not covered in dozens of very stiff little bumps. I guess someone thought those plastic bumps would have some kind of massaging effect or serve to make the shoes more slip-proof. But for someone with heel and sole pain, they unmercifully add to the pain. I tried putting orthopedic insoles inside but of course they won't stay put. I can wear these sandals for a few minutes with heavy wool socks that have padded soles, but that is all. So disappointed!
Purple color wears off
These are very comfortable shoes BUT after 2 months of owning them the purple is wearing off! I live and Florida so I switch my flip flops every day so I don’t wear the upbov everyday for them to look as they do. It is disappointing for the price people pay that this happens!
COMFORTABLE BUT QUALITY DISAPPOINTING
These are very comfortable, and I love the color, but was disappointed in quality. There is a little tear in the one strap and the purple coloring is coming off the sandals. This started happening a little after I bought the shoes.
