Best Walking Shoe Out There!
Worth every penny! I have bad knees walk and stand 11 hour days at work. If it wasn’t for these painless shoes I couldn’t do my job! Thank You is all I need to say!!!!
My feet no longer hurts
A great pain relieving shoe
Great Shoes !
Stopped knee pain
Persistant knee pain stopped me from running. I figured rest would heal my knee but it did not. Several years later, 50 lbs heavier and still had knee pain until I tried these shoes. I know have 0 pain in my knee. I am hopeful to start running again.
Love these shoes!!

I discovered Gravity Defyer almost two years ago. My feet hurt continuously and I was almost to the point that I couldn’t walk. I purchased the Ion shoe first and fell in love with it. I started walking my dog three or more miles every evening. This summer I tried the Mighty Walk and fell in love all over again. It’s so comfortable and lightweight. This is the absolute best brand of shoe ever made. I never buy anything else.
This shoe spoils you compared to all others!!!!!!!
by NM red
This shoe is a dream! I purchased this shoe first of two shoe purchases and glad I did. I have OA and now I am able to walk with minimal pain. The shoe gave me hope again. It runs true to size, good arch support and fits like a well-fitting glove. I would highly recommend this shoe. For those on very limited income as myself. Save up for a purchase. You will not regret it. This shoe has spoiled me to all others. Highly recommend.
No more pain !!!
I Love these shoes!! I have a heel spur and plantar faciitis. I have spent years having to get cortisone injections for the inflammation and pain. I discovered Gravity Defyer 5 years ago. I was able to wear these shoes straight out of the box with no break-in time necessary. I no longer have foot, hip or back pain. I am a nurse so I am on my feet for long periods of time. I have tried many different name brand sneakers but this is by far the best shoe I have ever worn. I highly recommend this shoe. I normally wear a 10 W in my other shoes. I ordered these shoes in a 10.5 W and the fit is perfect! I printed off the shoe sizing guide on this site and measured my foot to make sure I was ordering the correct size. Get these shoes if you are tired of being in pain.
Finally a shoe that works!
After doing a lot of research I decided to give these shoes a try and I'm so happy I did! I have multiple issues including knee, spinal, hip, foot issues of several kinds and I'm very over weight. This shoe has helped me with all those issues and I can walk without pain! Everything about this shoe is outstanding and I will be buying more. I highly recommend them!
I am a Medical Lab Technician. I work twelve hour shifts. i am on my feet most of that time. I was looking and researching for a shoe that was comparable to the sketcher shape ups. I am so happy with these shoes. My feet don't hurt after shit. My knee isn't killing me. I needed the high arch support that these shoes have given me back. Thank you.
Relief at LAST!!
I am on my feet all day. When I saw these shoes on another teacher, I was intrigued. She said they were the first shoes she was able to wear that did not hurt her feet. To be honest, the price was the only thing that gave me pause. However, I decided to take the plunge and...I am THRILLED to say my plantar fasciitis hasn’t made a PEEP while wearing these shoes!! These shoes look sharp and feel fantastic. I’m saving up for another pair! Thanks so much!
I have plantar fasciitis, these shoes have been a godsend for work!
Best shoe I have ever had
by Sheila Ingham
I have bad feet, a friend of mine had a pair of these shoes and she said she loved them. I went online and bought a pair for myself.
<br> These are amazing. I highly recommend these shoes!
I have been resistant to "orthopedic shoes" despite ongoing foot problems. I started reading reviews for shoes that relieved plantar fasciitis pain, and found these. Combined with a recommendation from my husband's colleague, the description (and 30 day trial period) was enough to get me to give it a shot. Well, I'm in love. While the shoes are a little "clunky" in appearance because of the stability sole, I decided I couldn't let that bother me. Why? Because I had nearly 90 percent pain relief immediately. While it will take a while for my fascia to build strength again, so 100 percent relief is unlikely right away, that much improvement cannot be ignored. I also bought a pair of dress shoes and will be acquiring another pair of athletic shoes from you soon. Thank you!
I would definitely purchase another pair!
I have really enjoyed wearing these shoes. At first I was skeptical never in my life had I ever pair over 50.00 for a pair of shoes.I had recently been dealing with rheumatoid arthritis and had a few of the nodules on my feet and toe joints and when inflamed it is painful .I have to say these shoes are true to there word about comfort . One will not be disappointed in these type of shoes. I will be looking to purchase another pair in there near future. Thank you for making such a comfortable shoe.
Love these Shoes
This is the first time that I have bought these shoes. I am very pleased that I am able to walk with no pain at the bottom of my foot. I am able to walk downstairs with no problems. I am able to put my orthotics into the shoe and have the extra comfort. I would buy another pair of these shoes in a heart beat. Thank you for such awesome shoes.
I just love these shoes. I was hoping that they would last me longer than 3 months but they are stretched out on the sides due to the way I walk. All in all, I will be getting them again. Only because they help tremendously with my pain.
When you try this shoes for the first time. You going to feel better 100%
Yes I would buy again.
I have CMT1A, The shoes helps. The only thing is the price is VERY high.
These shoes are great for planter fasciitis. I stand on concrete 10 hours a day. I love these shoes. The shock absorbers on the bottom are awesome. I recommend these for anyone with foot problems. Ive had shots, meds, insoles, etc.........These shoes help so much.
I love this shoe and would buy again. Well worth the money.
I have suffered with foot issues for the past two years because of surgery I had many years ago to correct a bunion on my right foot. My foot didn't heal correctly and here I am 30 years later with the following issues - neuromas, a hammer toe and plantar fasciitis in both feet. Although the treatment I have had, has helped the PF, I have lots of pain from the other issues and have searched high and low for a pair of shoes that are supportive yet comfortable, have a good arch support and a sole that absorbs the shock of walking. These shoes are it! They have made such a difference in my everyday life. I've barely taken them off since I received them. They are well worth the money and I would recommend these and would buy them again. 5+++ stars!! Thank you!
I LOVE these shoes!
I love to walk but the pain was just too great in my back and legs. I’ve tried numerous brands of shoes with no relief. When i put my foot into this shoe for the first time it was a game changer. I can now walk as far as i want with no pain!!!!! Thank you Gravity Defyer!!!!!!
Fantastic for tight calves!
I have struggled with having tight calves and Achilles for as long as I can remember. I have limited range of motion in my ankles, so my muscles and tendons are tauter than average - even as an athletic person. After long walks, massaging out my calves used to be incredibly painful. With these shoes, though, I get the lift and support that I need, and I no longer feel pain! I can work at a stand-up desk in these shoes without cramping, and my walks are enjoyable. 10 out of 10 would recommend to anyone with issues like mine.
My feet have never been so comfortable!
Shoes come with 3 sets of insoles to mix and match for the most comfortable customized fit I've ever had. Toe box is roomy without looking bulky, width and size are perfect. Lots of compliments on color and style. 10x better than NB for hard to fit feet! Worth every penny!
Excellent - only shoe that's provided relief!
Like so many others, I've had plantar fasciitis for years. But in the past year, I have developed other feet problems as well. I tend to underpronate & have developed stress fractures (trying to keep pressure off my arches). Alegria has always been my go-to shoe, but for walking/exercising, I needed something with more support. I bought a pair of Hoka one one shoes before a trip to NYC last year, but was in tears by the 2nd day of walking around the city. I've tried several pair from Mephisto, Taos, Vionic, Orthoheel, etc, but although they had good arch support, the rest of the sole was always hard as a rock. These are fantastic! I love that they include the additional sole for different arch heights & the spacer as well. It's so cool to feel the springy-ness in the heels. I can actually walk pretty well with out a ton of pain. These have been well worth the money!! Very happy customer!
Love this shoe!
Had an episode of mild drop foot due to a disc pressing on a nerve down my leg. My foot slapped the ground rather than the normal heel-toe placement. I bought these shoes and found they were very helpful in foot placement and the slight rolling motion allowed my foot to set down properly rather than slap. I am fine now but with occasional plantar fasciitis flareups I will buy another pair (or two!) in a different color. Very good support for my feet.
