I love these shoes!

by -

I must admit I was a bit skeptical, no I must admit I was a lot skeptical. But my skepticism was for naught because these shoes are nothing short of amazing. I disabled and a Navy Veteran from the Viet Nam era. I have hip pain, leg and ankle pain to the max.....I put these shoes on and haven't taken them off since except to go to bed, because they have relieved a good bit of my hip pain. These are absolute most comfortable shoes that I have ever owned in my 66 years of life. So, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for making my life a lot less painful....It is greatly appreciated.



I loved these things, they gave me the ability to defy gravity, and do things, only honest people wish they could do. For instance, all I had to do to get my feet off the ground was lift my leg, and... surprise! It went up! In fact, my feet are off the ground as of this moment, while I sit in my chair. Worth every cent 10/10 would fly again

The most comfortable shoes


These shoes are very comfortable. Very good feel from the first time I put them on. Be nice to your feet and get a pair for yourself. Great company to do business with.

Gravity Defyer Show Made a HUGE Difference


I am retired, but very active playing pickleball, line dancing and golf, not to mention walking. When I ordered my first pair of shoes, I was using expensive ($275) orthoyics based on my chiropractor's scan of my feet. Although they did help, there was still something missing. I decided to give these Gravity Defyer shoes a try based on ads I had seen on TV. Upon receiving them, I felt an immediate difference and as I wore them (without the orthotics), and noticed even more difference in terms of comfort. They have made a HUGE difference in comfort and I have found that if I don't wear them, there is something missing in terms of comfort. I have much less pain in my feet when I wear the Gravity Defyer shoes. Just think, they cost less than my orthotics and they are so stylish! I even had one person ask me about them as I was standing in line as he was so impressed with them. I've just ordered a pair of loafers and my wife just ordered sandals and flats. Obviously I am a big believer in Gravity Defyer shoes and willing to tell others because THEY WORK! Thank you, Gravity Defyer, for developing such a shoe and thank you for advertising!

A very comfortable shoe

I truly like this shoe. But, to make it perfect I would make the tongue of a little stronger material. The material is very light weight and flexible allowing it to get tucked inside the shoe when putting it on.

Mesh by big toes wears out quickly


Just like other customers have said, the mesh develops holes very quickly, by big toes, on the Ion gravity shoes. Otherwise the shoes are comfortable.



I like these but they run a little small. I have a size 13 and my right foot just makes it. I have a shoe stretcher in them and am still breaking them in. I think they will be okay after a while but would purchase a bigger size next time. Other than that I can see where these will help with foot issues. BTW I have the Cafe sandals and they are fantastic.

Best walking shoe ever.


Love these shoes! Just got my second pair, and they feel just as comfortable new, as the worn out pair I had to give up. I'm 65 y.o. have a neuroma in one foot, and walk 3.5 to 4.5 miles on most days. Sore feet are one thing I don't have to worry about. I've spent a lot of money trying other "walking" shoes, but for me, none compare to the comfort of G-Defy.



Bought these in November and have only worn them at the gym. On both shoes the ventilating nylon is cracking at the point where my foot bends at the toe. For the cost I paid for these shoes I would have expected them to last longer than two months...They are really comfortable, (which is why I gave them four stars) but I've had other brands that were half the cost and lasted for a year or more...
