Dear Customer Service,

The Storm Clouds were delivered this morning and – wow. OESH has changed a lot in the past 9.5 years!! Totally innovative design and springy sole – they do look great. And they feel great when I put them on.

Thank you!


Thanks for everything! I absolutely love them! My feet and knees have never felt better. Thank you all for an amazing product!


Great! Thank you so much! Your customer service is amazing!



Thanks for getting back to me, and yes, it is great that I have the coolest looking color with these OESH Blues in all of California. I’ve been getting the word out about your shoes to people I run into on a daily basis. I told a barista at Philz Coffee that he might want to check them out because they’re barefoot shoes with a great supportive sole. Which is a factor that is missing in many barefoot shoes. 

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers and motherly people at OESH!


Just got my new Townies. Love them!!! so comfy. 


WOW! Yes, the color is beautiful and the Athenas are SOooo comfy – both Dorothy and the Wicked Witch are happy!



Thank you Oesh! 

I agree your crocheters are fabulous as my 1st pair of the Salon shoes are great and were from the start of me receiving them and putting them on my happy feet. I love that they are being made right her in the US and therefore supporting our community and economy. So thank you for the guidance on this small thing and I will let you know if it ever becomes a bigger thing.

Take care!  



I’m impressed you know that!! Yes I did. I just slipped on my new OESH shoes and I am so in love. I’ll make sure to leave a review. Thank you so much for such incredible shoes that are actually good for my feet. 

Appreciate you guys!!


OMG!  My shoes just arrived and they fit!  I feel like I have a new lease on life, as this is the first time in many years I have walked without pain in a shoe other than a man’s tennis shoe!  Thank you so much!!!  I am ordering the gray and the blue right now so I have options.

This is nothing short of a miracle and has more than likely saved me from having surgery!

I can’t thank you enough!


Thank you so much for your quick response and all of your help. When you have another sale I will order another pair. Being 75, having had polio and multiple operations on both feet and legs and on a fixed income I always buy during sales. Your shoes are great. It took me years constantly searching and Oesh has completed my search. 


I have been wearing OESH shoes for years and love them! The OESH Dreams look as great dressed up as they do with jeans. The black Dream is my go-to shoe and the Elderberry color is the perfect festive touch for holidays. The Dreams wipe clean easily and look as good today as the day I received them. The Townies slip on easily, hug my foot perfectly, and are oh-so-comfortable. My OESH sneakers are perfect for both gym workouts and long trail walks. The few times I had questions regarding my OESH purchases, customer service could not have been more helpful. Whatever style you choose, OESH are healthy, comfortable, stylish shoes and I highly recommend.

Incredible comfort, fit AND customer service!
I had foot surgery a year ago and have struggled with footwear since. I contacted customer service via email and was given suggestions on how shoes their shoes fit and how they can help me (with different size shoes). Responses were quick and helpful!
5 stars isn’t enough for OESH!

-Kami (Review #501 on Google)

Received my Essential Black Dreams yesterday, I have RA and my feet are bad. These are the most comfortable shoes! I was amazed.


A special thank you from the waitresses of your corner of the world for thoughtful, attractive, & functional footwear we can actually work in- safely!


10/10 great customer service. I appreciate you!


I’m excited to get these almond rose Townies for my wedding in May!! Thank you for making a comfortable wide toe box flat!


I’ve been suffering from a horrible case of plantar fasciitis in my left foot and was a little worried about switching to a shoe with no contoured arch support, but since I developed PF while wearing a custom orthotic WITH a high arch I didn’t see how continuing to wear the same type of shoes was going to help.  After visiting your website I was really intrigued by the science behind your design.  I decided to give OESH shoes a try and I’m happy to report that after wearing them around the house for about a week I’m pretty delighted! 

First thing I noticed was all the extra room in the toe box without sacrificing a snug fit in the heel.  Historically, I’ve always had to shove my foot into a size 8.5 because in a size 9 the heel was too loose and would slide up and down when I walked.  No wonder my toes are calloused and turning inward.  With OESH my toes are very happy.  I paired the shoes with toe socks so now every toe down to the pinkie is free to move about, which I’m sure is how nature intended it to be.  I was even able to move up to a size 9.5 without sacrificing a good fit in the heel.  Now I can wear a little thicker sock which is keeping my feet warmer and hopefully improving blood circulation and healing. 

Walking on my OESH shoes has been like walking on a cloud.  That’s saying a lot since I’ve been pretty uncomfortable with the PF for four months.  I’ve been cautiously walking around in them wondering what consensus my feet would come to since the OESH shoes are so different from the shoes I’ve been wearing.   So far they are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn.  I understand managing PF can be a journey with an uncertain outcome, so I’m very happy to have found the comfort my OESH shoes are giving me while I deal with it.  I only wish it hadn’t taken a bad case of PF for me to discover them. 

Thank you Dr. Kerrigan and the entire OESH team for these awesome shoes!


y’all are THE best! best shoes, best customer service, and every interaction i’ve had with y’all has resulted in big smiles! 

as a USPS employee i feel like i am waiting at the door for my shoes (TWO pair!!!) the way my dog waits for me…..

the San Antonio Riverwalk awaits!


Just received my new Warriors AND I LOVE THEM!!


As per your suggestion below that would be the perfect solution for my 86 year-old mom…I told her that you have been the most helpful and considerate online sales and company I’ve ever dealt with.


After great experience with similar Dream size 12 Blossom I would like to order these 2 pairs also size 12 Dream+ 🙂 I am close to 44eu size and often at the end of size ranges. Blessed comfort and so grateful to OESH!


Hello, OESH!!
I just received my order yesterday and am completely in love with my Townies



I now have 2 pairs of the Dream. I have size 12, medium width, feet and it is hard to find comfortable, flat shoes that fit properly.  Typically, ballerina flats in large sizes gap in the middle when you take a step. This does not happen with the Dream style. They are super comfortable right out of the box. They fit the foot snuggly, but comfortably, because the fabric is stretchy.  Ordering and shipping to Canada went very smoothly.


Really appreciate how quickly you all respond to emails!  It is a real treat – and I just can’t believe how comfy my Warrior and Salon shoes are!  I have very fussy feet and they love OESH.

You folks at OESH really do deliver stellar customer service.  I don’t know of any other company that would actually listen and respond the way you have to my concerns.



Thank you so much for your care and thoughtfulness. I read some reviews and at least one commented on how helpful you have been and how well you treat your customers.


This is my first experience with OESH shoes.  When I first put them on I thought these feel strange and then something clicked in my brain, and WOW!  These feel amazing.  Hard to describe how good they feel.  Like I don’t ever want to take them off kind of good.  I am sure you get this same response from everyone.  


OESH Shoes,

Thank you for amending my Order so very promptly to 3 different pairs of shoes (not 4 pairs of shoes). 

Another reason to love OESH is that my order was amended correctly on the same day I made that request.  

Thank you again,


Hello OESH!

Awesome lovely footwear! Looking forward to renewed feet:)


Hi there!

Just want to say that I received my Warriors today and I really love them. 



These are the only shoes that help me when plantar fasciitis flares up. They really work.

-Milly (Review #400 on Google)

I had looked up what shoes were good for Morton’s Neuroma and OESH was recommended. I purchased
a pair and I love them! I get compliments on them every time I wear them. They feel great when they’re
on. They are pricey, but you get what you pay for and they’re worth every penny.

-Melanie (Review #401 on Google)

Hi there,

I just received my order, and I *love* the Warriors (size 9.5) – they fit great and are so comfortable! I have plenty of room for my toes, which makes these pretty much the only pair of shoes I’ve ever tried on that do that!


Salons…LOVE them! My feet thank you!






Hi again, I went ahead and did exactly what we talked about above. 


Thank you for the incredible, personalized customer care. I knew your shoes were special, but it’s clear your whole company and way of doing business is exceptional. 🙂 


Warm best wishes,





I LOVE your shoes!  

Thanks so much for making such amazing shoes.  I am a teacher and have been having knee pain- but one day in your shoes and the knee pain went away!   Telling everyone I know to switch to OESH 🙂



Thanks, Oesh Team-


My Warriors arrived and I am loving them, and believe me when I say I’ve been searching for 10+ years for you. 


-Mary Kate

Thanks, I got the new pair of Salons today and I LOVE them!



WOW!! You folks are the BEST!!!

Big thanks and virtual squeezes!!!


Please let me know if you need anything else.




Awesome!  I recommended Oesh shoes to my friend Joan in CA, who texted me last week that these shoes have changed her life!  Thanks, all!


-Jo Service –

The size 6.5 Dream + in Essential Black shoes arrived today! Just wanted you to know that you are a pleasure to work with too!




Was just thinking…it’s been 7 years since I ordered my first pair of OESH! Just before I went to Italy in 2014. Time sure flies. I’ve had many pair since then. I bought them because of the Morton’s neuroma I’d had, and my OESH helped that a great deal until I had surgery to remove it a couple years later. But I was also thinking how I don’t ever experience the leg pain/fatigue that I’d also been experiencing. I can stay on my feet for a lot of hours without issues.  Between mostly working at home for a lot of years and retiring 2 years ago, you will find me wearing one kind of OESH or another most of the time (even have a couple pair of favorite old LaVidas). 


Also want to say thanks for running sales at random times and not just for holidays or on holiday weekends. It’s helpful, sometimes you just can’t get to order at those times. 


One of these days I will get around to trying a pair of Warriors and ordering another pair of Salons


Thanks again,



Good morning!  I received my order yesterday.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new Dream+—they actually fit like a dream! 



Well, you have no idea how this has brightened my day! It’s refreshing to know you can admit to a “screw up” because, heck, we ALL do it from time to time . I’ll look forward to receiving my lovely new shoes, just in time for the holiday! Many many thanks for your quick reply 

Enjoy the holiday, be safe.



I have two pairs of Warriors and I love so many things about them, such as the roomy toe box, the bouncy soles, no more heel or knee pain. 


Thank you,





I have rheumatoid arthritis and my feet are always quite painful. This is the first pair of shoes that I put on everyday and say Ahhhh!

Thank you!



Thank you so very much! I will be ordering again after your response to my request! What a great company



Thank you for your quick and helpful response!  I ordered two more pairs.  You are right, I am absolutely
loving my Salons and Townies! I had been eyeing your shoes for some time before I took the plunge.
When I find something I like, I tend to buy in bulk.   I like to say that OESH has created a problem
for me.  I no longer have any interest in wearing my other shoes.  The moment I slipped on my Salons, I
was like, “Dear all other shoes, YOU ARE NOW DISMISSED.”  I have been telling everyone about
OESH.  My mom, my friends, co-workers, even the woman who owns my favorite coffee shop.
Thanks again,


Hello OESH Associate,
I’ve long been a devotee of your shoes, both the original Dream and the Warrior. In fact, I’m on my second pair of the original Dream as they are about the only shoes I wear – even for walking the trails in town with my dog every day. They are also superb for walking around NYC all day. And anywhere, really, and I received my first pair of OESH Dream+ yesterday!
I’m 69 with arthritis and bunions and bone spurs in my aged feet, and before OESH, only wore Theiry Rabotin or Mephisto shoes – and occasionally Prada. But none of them gave me the comfort or support, along with some style, of OESH. I still wear the others, but not often!
With warm appreciation,


I love your shoes and am so grateful for all you do for folks like me.  The Townies also work great for me,
even though they’re not listed as a shoe for neuromas.   I’ll probably purchase the black Dream for the
upcoming school year. (I’m a school counselor and am off for the summer).

Thank you!

OMG!!! Are you ever FAST and providers of GREAT SERVICE!!! Unbelievable!!!
THANK YOU. What a phenomenal company you are!!
Can’t wait to receive this order.


Received my Dream shoes last Saturday and love the way they work with my bunion.
Thank you.


I got the shoes.  I have a TERRIBLE problem with these Salons.  I don’t want to wear any of my other
shoes!  These shoes are so comfortable.
I know they are made in the U.S.  Can you tell me what is the sole made of? [OESH Ed.: A proprietary
elastomer, developed for maximum springiness and durability—100% recyclable, too!]
Thank you,


Good Morning,
I just received my fabulous second order from Oesh Shoes.  I love your shoes and the design!  The most
comfortable shoes I have ever worn!


Thank you so much for your quick response. I will try the size 12. I especially picked your shoes for the
ability of the material to stretch over the top of the foot. I have a high instep as well as swollen feet
from severe edema.
Again, thank you. Your service to me as a customer is very appreciated.


I love the new Salon.  If you rushed the order, thank you!  I love the fabric and the stitching is such a
beautiful color.


Good morning,
Thank you for the quick reply and for putting the order through so fast too! I just saw the invoice stating that I owe $10. Given that my credit was for $108.79 and the Salon shoe is $139, I was wondering about the math, but then received your email while I was composing this one stating that you honored the discount from the Townie purchase. I was not expecting that and this is so amazing of you – thank you so
much! I will process this today.
I know I’ve told you this a million times, but you all really, really rock! I can’t imagine my life with your shoes in it. These are true game changers. I know you’ve requested I review you on Google but I don’t do too much of that, to be honest. So I hope telling you here will suffice!
By the way, can I wear socks with the Salon? [OESH Ed.: Absolutely!] Thinking ahead to winter…
Best always,


I got my shoes! They are so comfortable. I wish I would have found you first. I’ve wasted so much time
and money trying to find a comfortable black flat. I’m so happy!


Back for more! 🙂
Thank you for making these wonderful shoes


Love the shoes–I have told all my friends with feet about them!


Hello!  I just wanted to thank you for the custom Artemis Sandals I bought recently, with extra infill.  I’ve
been wearing them all day for a couple days, and they feel great!  You all are truly the best.


By the way, I love my Warriors so much this is my second pair! I haven’t worn the first pair out yet but it
won’t be long. The upper is sooooo comfortable! I’m not sure they really need laces! Thanks for this
wonderful design!


You have fabulous service and communication.


Hi, I recently ordered a pair of Townies and one of Warriors.  I love them both!


Oh my goodness I love you guys!!
Thank you so much!
I am so grateful. Also super excited about your offer to customize a pair of black flatforms!! I am going
to consider this and reach out to you if I decide to do so!
Again, I am so grateful for your service! I love your company and have been a customer for several
Best regards,


You guys are awesome!  Thank you for your quick response. Mom thanks you too! 🙂


Wonderful, thank you so much!
Oh and also – I had emailed with a question earlier this year and mentioned a job interview. Someone from OESH (maybe you!) responded with some really warm wishes, hoping I would get the job. Well I did, and the folks there are also very warm and thoughtful. All greatly appreciated, especially given how tough the past 18 months have been for everyone, to varying degrees
Thank you for supporting foot health and heart health alike!!!

– Erika

Aw thank you!! The Dreams were in my mailbox and I just love them!

Happy weekend

Good Morning,
I hope this finds you having a great day!
I do have the Artemis sandal in size 7.   Also, I have Morton Neuromas  in both feet.   I have been
wearing my Artemis daily and my feet feel so much better.  I am thinking the wide sole for my toes is
why.  Is there that much room in the toe box of the Warrior?   Is the sole in the toe box as wide as the
toe box of the Artemis? (OESH Ed.: YES indeed!)
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for your help.

I love all of my Oesh shoes.  I have 5 LaVida, 3 color of elite and one dream in black.  They are the only shoes I wear and own.  Was getting foot injections, but since wearing your shoes no longer getting injections and do not need orthotics.

Thank you.


Hi there!
I have some health concerns and these Warriors are my favorite thing, ever!


I love my new Warriors!  Thanks!  There is plenty of room where my toes and bunions are.
Kindest regards.


I recently got my first pair of Oesh sandals and I love them! I have been wearing them when I exercise. I
do Barre3, a combination of yoga, barre and pilates with cardio, which is normally done barefoot. I have
flat feet and these shoes help my stability and alignment when exercising.
I am looking forward to getting more of these shoes.


I bought the Townie and I am very happy with them. I bought a size 9 originally but they were too big and when I wrote customer service they gladly exchanged them for a size 8 which fit perfectly. I was concerned at first that they seemed tight at the toes but they have molded to my feet perfectly and they are very comfortable. I have been surprised as they are an unusual shoe but I was just thinking today about how cleverly they were designed. I am thinking of getting another pair.


Thanks so much! Your shoes are the most comfortable footwear I’ve ever tried. I adore them!



I received my Townies.
I love them! The heel fits great. My bunions are happy.


Thank you!



Hi Oesh,


I’ve worn your shoes for years.  I have plantar fasciitis & I wear your shoes for that reason.  I’m looking to purchase my next pair of tennis shoes & wanted to see what you recommended.  


For reference: 

  • I started out wearing La Vidas, then I purchased a couple pairs of Lea, and I’ve also purchased Dreams as well.  
  • I have had good experience with all of these in helping to support my plantar fasciitis.
  • I transitioned from La Vidas to Lea based on a recommendation from your team that it was the newer model & would better support my plantar fasciitis.
  • I had great experience with Lea’s.  I’ve traditionally worn grapefruit.

As I look to my next tennis shoe purchase, what do you recommend for plantar fasciitis?  (OESH ED: Jen bought, on our recommendation, the OESH Warrior and she LOVES them!)


Thanks so much,



I absolutely LOVE these Townies. Hands down the best things I’ve ever put on my feet.

As someone with RA and knee issues, I’m so in love and never want to wear another shoe, ever. My knees and feet thank you!


Good evening!  Just wanted to let you know that I took your advice and now I don’t want to take off my OESH Townies.  I know that I’ll want additional styles in the coming months and I also hope that I don’t wear them out!  I’m now 62 and when I was a child, my mother used to despair about how hard I am on shoes. What can I say?  My shoes go where I go!  


Thanks for talking me off the ledge.


I have to say that with the sneakers or rather athletic Warrior shoes, the normal pains or odd sensation in my feet that I experienced walking before have all gone with my new OESH shoes 


I received the sandals.  I really don’t know how they’re so springy but that is incredibly comfortable.  Also the straps and hardware are very very nice.  Easy to get out of the sandal, too.  





Thanks for getting back to me! I absolutely love my warriors. They are perfect for my problem feet and are so cute! I’ve had strangers compliment my shoes! Very happy and looking forward to my Salons 



Thank you so much for your reply. It’s always really nice to hear back (and so quickly!) from a company. 


Four pairs in – two wonderful Dream flats, a townie, and some really super rad orange sneakers – I now consider myself a regular Oesh’er…so I will always keep my eyes open for anything new. Pardon my grammatical errors up there…


My feet, which are a wide-in-the-front 9 1/2, have never been happier! I can tell immediately when I switch to “regular” shoes – my feet let me know.  So I let everyone know too! Anyone who stops me to compliment my beautiful red flats or my funky orange sneaks always hears my praises. I am yours for life!


Thanks for taking the time. I truly appreciate it. 


-Geri 🙂

Thank you for your quick response.  I put the Warriors on again this morning to see what I didn’t like about the fit to see if it made sense to go down or up a size – and discovered I might have been too hasty when I tried them on yesterday.  They are super comfortable.  I will keep this pair.



Thank you for your quick reply and yes, they did arrive today! I can’t recall when my feet have been so happy with a new pair of shoes — I love them and just placed an order for two more pair.

Best regards,


Thank you again for working with me through the sizing test and re-test process. I have continued to enjoy wearing the Warrior, it fits great and the shoe structure around my ankle makes it feel secure and I am looking forward to replacing other shoe categories with this type of footbed and toe freedom. And in case I missed saying this before, thank you so much for having so many options for healthy comfortable shoes that don’t look like baked potatoes.

It is also rare for customer service interactions to include talk of quests; I really appreciated it and it puts a wide smile on my face every time I think about it. Thank you for sprinkling in a bit of extra magic. =)


Thank you – the Dreams arrived today and I love them!

-Linda (from Canada)

Thank you!

Yes, I wore my brand new Artemis on my walk today, and it was so comfortable – I had zero foot pain.  I always have foot pain – but not today!   It was fantastic!


I received my order yesterday. The Warriors are fantastic and I think I will live in them.


Thanks for the update. I am so happy to have found your shoes. Since having surgery on my toe three years ago, I’ve tried so many different shoes, looking for something that is comfortable and stylish. Oesh are hands down the best!



Just received my 4th pair, (first pair of Warrior) style, (3 pairs of Dream, black, blossom, cranberry) really happy with the shoes. I have a very high arch, as well as a very wide foot, so I am delighted that I can wear these ALL DAY, and my feet do not hurt.

Thanks so much!


Wow. Thank you so much! I will get them shipped out right away. The USPS label is such a blessing. Thanks again!



I just opened my order (it was in my Hub locker for a few days because I was busy with work), and I’m thrilled with my new Townies. They’re so pretty and ridiculously comfortable.

Thank you!


Thank you so much! I really love the shoes and am glad to know they will loosen.

You are the most responsive company I’ve ever dealt with. Kudos to you!



Hi there,

Just tried out my Warriors. It’s amazing that, as flat as these shoes are – and I felt my arches feeling like they could potentially cave as soon as I put them on – they didn’t once I began walking! In fact, I had major surgery on my right foot two years ago to repair a displaced fracture and have needed a metatarsal pad to shore up a weak spot, which I didn’t wear on my maiden voyage in these shoes to see how they’d perform, and I had no pain! My feet felt great and so did my legs. Walking felt effortless.

Best always,


Dear Customer Service Team,

You are a great team.  I like doing business with you.  I will order again now that I know what size and style works for me.

Have printed my label and am about to drop it off at the USPS office.



Thanks, you too! FYI – I have 1/4″ height difference of one leg and have worn a lift in the past.  So far I am more than comfortable walking for exercise without a lift and do not have the pain in my feet like I used to.  Love the spaciousness and height of the toe box.  That’s why I tried your shoes.  The pictures in the ad really showed the shape of the shoe well.   I have had big toe surgeries on both feet (I’m 70) and have some arthritis but am feeling very comfortable in these.  THEY WORK!  Please don’t alter the design of these Warriors.  I’ve lived long enough to see many styles (of everything) change and it’s usually for the worse.



I just received the Townies, and WOW. They are SO comfortable! I’ve never been able to wear cute flat style shoes because the toes have always pinched, and the heels have rubbed…so it’s always been sandals or shoes I can wear with socks. Thank you for these wonderful shoes!

Again, thanks so much!!


Well – I just received my shoes today a few hours after I sent this email. They seem to fit well and are comfortable for my first time to try them on inside the house.

I appreciate shoes that look nice and fit well for wider feet!



Thank you so much! I printed the label and will get them in the mail tomorrow.

 I am happy to have found OESH shoes and I am happy to be an OESHer!



Excellent, glad to hear that my Warriors (and Dreams) are machine washable. And thank you so much for your prompt response! Certainly wasn’t expecting to hear back on a Sunday.

Take care,


Yes you are simply awesome. Best customer care anywhere!!!!


These Warriors are a birthday present for my daughter (hence a different size than I normally get). I am so happy that she’s taking care of her feet/health by asking about my shoes (I only wear 100% OESH now) and wanting a pair for herself. Thank you, thank you, thank you Dr. K and OESH team! I appreciate you all so deeply.


Thank you for your help!

The Warrior style is truly the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn. I need to buy more!

Do you by chance ship internationally? I’m moving to Portugal soon. (OESH ed. Yes—OESH ships internationally, each and every day!)


Awesome!! Yes to the custom pink sandal 🙂

Awesome customer service, thank you so very much.


The Dream+ shoes have arrived and I love them.  Thank you!


Thank you for the excellent customer service. The shoes are superb.


My Zinc Warriors arrived yesterday and today I took ’em for a run. Absolutely awesome! OESH for the win!


Thank you!! I got my new Dream+ today and I already love them!

– Lauren

My new Warriors arrived today and they feel AMAZING! So light and comfy.

I love watching how you guys keep innovating!
Thanks so much!



Happy new year!

Just letting you know that my pair of warriors arrived yesterday and that I am already wearing them today! Very comfortable.

Kind regards,

-Christine (in New Zealand)

Dear OESH team,

The Artemis sandal is THE BEST thing to ever happen to my feet. Seriously, these are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn! Despite the fact that I pronate, my feet feel entirely supported. I didn’t want to take them off. Actually, I wanted to sleep in them. Will you please pass along my personal thanks to Dr. Kerrigan for her visionary and extraordinary work?

My next purchase will be the Warrior sneaker.

Thank you all so much for all you do!

With gratitude,


Thanks so much!

I have lots of your shoes and I love those Dreams so much!  You really do have the best shoes in the world!   I have Lymphedema on the left side of my body and when I wear your shoes, I have absolutely no swelling in my left foot, none!  In any other  “good” shoe, Dansko, etc. my foot swells up like a balloon by the end of the day.  This will be my first pair of Warriors!

Thanks again,


Thank you! I’d like the Salons in Neptune, size 9, please. I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate these superb shoes–and the best customer service I’ve encountered anywhere.




I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you working with me on this!  Even with the issues of my toe, every time I put on the shoes, it just seems like my knees and back feel better.

Thank you so very much!  We will get this figured out!

You have been so awesomely helpful!!!  Your kind customer service has been superb!


Thank you very much for getting them started. I have a number of foot problems and the comfort I experience with Oesh shoes makes a big difference.


Hey – You guys are AMAZING! Previous reviews led me to expect excellent customer service, but 21 minutes is a new level of awesome!

I’ve printed the shipping label, and the return for exchange will be in tomorrow’s mail.

I meant to add in my first note that I have been wearing some kind of minimalist shoe for quite a few years now, and my forefoot has already expanded from its formerly cramped-by-typical-shoes shape. I look forward to receiving the Dream+ size 9.




Thanks, OESH for the shoes. You are right, the Warriors are amazing! Getting ready to order 3 more
pairs now!

The OESH Warrior shoes are probably the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I walk everywhere
and often work at a standing desk, and they provide great support while also being lightweight and
aesthetically pleasing. I also have a pair of the OESH Dream shoes that I enjoy wearing in warmer

I finally received my Warriors today and they are awesome! Thank you so much! What a relief for my
whole body.

I received my Warriors right before Christmas. I’m so happy you told me to wait for this style. So
comfortable. Better for my feet than any of the other styles.
Have you ever thought about creating the Oesh Sock?
I hope you can create more shoes on the Warrior footbed. Like a slip on style. In the meantime I’m
gonna order another pair or two.
Keep up the great work. You are saving me for free from future foot surgery.

Yes yes!!
One gray for TODAY and one black for when I can get them! Both size 12.
These Dreams make my feet smile.

Thank you so very much! I received my new Warriors yesterday and they are amazing!! I literally have been unable to find any comfortable shoes besides my sandals! These new shoes are so comfortable! Plus I can wear them to Church and work! I look forward to buying more when I get a job!
I can’t thank you enough for developing these shoes!!
Merry Christmas!

Have been wearing my comfy, Yes, fabulous! Warriors ever since opening the box.
Thanks and Happy Holidays,

I just ordered and received a pair of the black ballerina style shoes, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them.
I would love to do a review if you could direct me to the best link(s). I took them out of the box, put them on, and have not taken them off!! They are chic, flattering, but most of all INCREDIBLY COMFORTABLE. I am so glad I came across your FaceBook ad and ordered. LOVING them. Thanks so much for all the work that went into R & D to get them on the market!!

You’re THE BEST!! Thank you so much! I’ve printed the stamp out. Wow are you ever so speedy with your customer service responsiveness!

Thank you!  I just placed my order.
These are the best shoes I’ve ever worn. They are so good for my feet.
Wishing all y’all all the best this holiday season.

I recently ordered the Salon shoes and they have been rocking my world! I have a very wide and square forefoot and Morton’s neuroma on my larger foot. Almost all footwear, even in wide, does not accommodate my right forefoot and still stay on my left foot. My feet measure 7 and 7.5, and I ordered an 8 in the Salon. The Salon is a miracle for me.

Love, love love my Oeshes — I used to kick off my shoes as soon as I got home and put on rubber clogs.
These sneakers are so amazingly comfortable that I wear them the whole day. All my other shoes, including those rubber clogs, are getting dusty in the closet.


I swore off ordering shoes by mail, but am giving it one last try. My size 12 feet are wide at the front (bunions) and very narrow in the heel. And the left foot is bigger than the right. I should just wear the boxes.
Hope this experiment works.

Just wanted to thank you so very much for your wonderful, professional, prompt, kind and willing handling of my return and exchanges.  Your service was superior!
I am so very grateful, and do appreciate you!

That’s super news.  Thank you so much! It’s actually my second recent Lea order – just love that Cranberry color!.  I own about 8 pairs of La Vidas and the gray Lea. I started wearing La Vida after researching good shoes for Morton’s Neuroma and Plantar Fasciitis. That’s why I ordered a couple more pairs of them.
Thanks so much for getting back to me so quickly, and on a holiday weekend as well. I really appreciate
that. Take care, stay safe and healthy.


Good Day,
Your customer service has been wonderful. I always get a response in less than a day. Your shoes are

Many thanks for your expert advice and fabulous product. I recently had complex orthopedic foot
surgery. After 6 weeks in a heel boot, I was ordered to wear a Birkenstock sandal for 4 more weeks. This
doesn’t work for me, giving me swollen ankles due to all the lumps and dips in a Birk. So I changed to
my La Vidas and my ankle swelling went down the same day!! I am going to recommend OESH to the
Orthorpedic Dept. at UVA as theraputic after-surgery shoes that they should recommend. Heaven!
Many thanks,

Hello!  We received the sandals today and my wife is very happy with them.  Thank you for handling the
return, staying in communication and delivering a great product.

Thank you for your super fast response and fantastic customer service!  I have printed the
label and will ship in the next couple of days.

I want to express how much my feet love these shoes.  After trying the sandals, clogs and La Vidas v3.01, I felt I needed a pair suitable for work.  So I purchased a pair of Lea this past Spring for wearing to work. We have a window cleaning business and I’m on my feet, bending, kneeling, reaching on tip toes and standing on step ladders occasionally.  The shoes have been working out great.  The treads don’t pick up and track dirt, my feet aren’t sore when I get home and shoes don’t come off usually til after dinner, when I switch to a different pair of Oeshes.  I am totally hooked on your footwear and the relief my feet, calves, knees and even hips have experienced this window cleaning season.
I’m sold on these shoes since I haven’t found any other footwear I trust my feet and leg health with.
Have a great day!

Dear OESH Shoes Service Team Member,

Thank you so much for your timely and thorough response! All those reviewers were right when they said you offer the best and most informed/educated customer service. I agree!
I’ll be happy to have another pair of Elites in the blue Yalie color. One for indoors, one for outdoors. The next time I order, I’ll try the Salon. When I first looked at them I was concerned that my own skinny heel might slip out of them, but I see they are angled to catch the heel so maybe they’ll work for me.
And thanks for the tips on the Athenas. I fooled around a lot with the straps, but I’ll continue to search for the sweet spot. They are very comfortable sandals.
I printed the return label and will ship the shoes tomorrow. Thanks again for the awesome customer
All the best to you,

My shoes were just delivered & I L-O-V-E them! When you have “big” feet & they’re arthritic to boot, to find shoes that are comfortable is not a fun pastime.  I will be ordering more from you in the Future when I can, these are wonderful!


Dear Oesh Shoes,
Since switching to your shoes I’ve experienced a huge reduction in upper back pain and my posture has improved.  Thank you for making shoes that make my body feel better!
-Sarah (and her mom Marsha)

Good morning,
I received my Townie’s yesterday. Good I didn’t get in the box last night, because I might have tried to sleep in them. My first impression was amazing and then I called a friend who has a history of foot issues, surgeries, bunions, etc and told her about them.

Your shoes have had a huge impact in my life and my ability to function and work. Winter is coming!
You need to make a winter boot for Canadian winters (-30 Celsius). Or perhaps an insole I can put into a
wide toe winter boot!

I loved reading the information on the Sustainability page.  Good job!


I would like to say that I love, love, love my dream flats. It is also awesome that they are made here in Charlottesville!
Thanks so much,


Great, thank you for the info! I’ll give the size 8 Artemis a test drive and see how it goes, or if I need to size up or down. An extra $80 is VERY reasonable for custom, I had thought it would be more than that.
The wonders of 3D printing! (and two weeks later…):
Hello again!  Just wanted to follow up.  The shoes fit, and they are MAGICAL.  Best shoes ever.  Will definitely be buying more soon, and leaving a review on your website.  Thank you!


Lovely! Thanks so much. I love your shoes.
Best wishes,

-Monica (from Australia)

Hello from Washington DC!
I received my first pair of Oesh a few weeks back, the Artemis style with the ice blue sole. Unusual, edgy cool, AND comfortable. A hard combo to find. I happened upon the website because I was doing research for American shoe manufacturers. After a frustrating bout of online shopping, I found, as usual, all the shoes I like don’t come in wide, and most wide shoes I don’t like the style. So I started to revisit the idea of designing my own line of shoes. I was doing a search for shoemaking classes and shoe makers, when Oesh came up in the results. Do you think some more styles are in the future? I’d love to see a boots (chukka, chelsea/platform hybrid, motorcycle, and combat) for starters!I’ll be placing another order.


Thank you very much for the speedy response. I am so excited to get my tootsies into the Bungalow. Every OESH shoe I’ve worn has been my favorite shoe ever and I couldn’t be more grateful for the whole idea behind how you all do things over there. Thanks for helping this girl get around without foot pain, and for everything you’ve been doing this year in particular. Great company, huge fan, lifetime customer.
Thanks again,


Thanks for the guidance. The Townies are so incredibly comfortable and now that I’m a mom and not a touring musician, I’ve finally prioritized foot health but have struggled thus far to find shoes that were cool looking!


Hi, Oesh Team.
I’m finally taking a minute to tell you how much I love my Oesh Artemis sandals. I ordered the Rose Quartz soles with the Robin’s Egg Blue straps and they are even prettier in real life. First of all, they arrived sooner than expected. I ordered them on Saturday, July 4, so I didn’t expect them until the 13th or 14th because I placed my order on the weekend, and weekend orders with many companies are not processed till Monday. The comfort is unbelievable! All my sandals are comfortable, otherwise I wouldn’t wear them, but these are tops! The straps are soft and comfortable, and the toe nest is comfortable too. The buckle is easy to use, so they are easy to put on and take off. I walked all over Costco with my husband on Sunday, and they felt amazing! They will be perfect at our camper, because the straps keep my feet secure and they’ll be great on the beach. I’ve never spent this much money on a pair of sandals, but they are worth every penny, and especially since they are made to order in Charlottesville. I also like the cloth bag which makes a great shoe bag and cuts down on waste. Oesh rocks!


Thank you, I have bought 6 pairs of shoes and love your product. And again thank you also for the mask donations to Health workers.


The first-generation Dreams were good, but the second-generation Dreams are great. Team OESH nailed the fit on the new Dreams. The new heel structure is perfect for securely grabbing the heels of those of us with narrower than average feet.


I think I’m in love.  My new Townies are every bit as comfortable as you said they would be and I’m so thrilled!  Thank you for your recommendation.  I will be back!


Thank you so much. Your customer service is superb.


I just received my Dream shoes and I love them! It honestly feels like I am not even wearing shoes!
Thanks so much,


Hope all is well with you.  It’s been so nice to read about all the good work you guys have done, pivoting in manufacturing and making PPE for the fight against Covid 19.  Well done!

I have been wearing La Vida’s to play tennis for almost five years now and they are wonderful shoes.  My feet are much stronger and they have helped me improve my game and more importantly, avoid injury.
All the best,


Hello service team,
Thank you for your email. I’m ordering a size 10 because I won’t be wearing two pairs  of thick socks with the Bungalows.  I hope this works. So, yes the order is correct.  Thanks for checking. So happy with Oesh.  All my shoes are oesh, and I tell my friends about these shoes all the time. Also, so kind of you to offer a discount if available.



Thank you for your prompt response to my inquiry. This is my fourth pair of OESH shoes, & I have been very pleased with both the quality of the shoes and the excellent customer service.
Again, many thanks!


I actually have all three colors of the dreams. I’m so glad I discovered OESH…it’s my new favorite shoe


I appreciate your business so much. The Ombre grey pair of your Townies that I’ve purchased earlier is my go to on a daily basis. Women around always ask where I got it from. Thanks a lot!


Dear Oeshers,
My affiliation with OESH shoes and your company is brand new and I must say how completely amazed I am at both the quality of my new footwear and the exceptional customer service you provide!  I suffer from Morton’s Neuroma in both feet and did quite a bit of research before placing my first order.  The comfort of my first two pair are beyond my expectations and I cannot wait to receive my third pair of OESH shoes.
I will be happy to share my satisfaction with others!


Thank you very much for your response and your kind note about our prime minister. We think too she has done incredible things. I hope that Covid gets under control at your end too.
And I am also very impressed by your donations of respiratory masks. Leadership is just that, taking steps to help others around us! I look forward to your email about the new shoes.

Kind regards,

-Christine (from New Zealand)

Thank you. I was so impressed when I saw you were making masks to help our very brave nurses, doctors, and first responders. I live in ma and hope someone picks up the ball here. What a great idea.


I just received my order.  Oh my gosh, these are the most comfortable sandals I’ve worn in a long time.  I have Morton’s Neuroma and I’ve been searching.  I’m looking forward to a long walk again.


Hi! My mom received her shoes! Thank you so much!
All the Best,


Thanks for your excellent customer service – I can’t wait to get my sandals 🙂
All the best,


Great, thanks! Glad you got it to work.
Took a long walk with my dog wearing the sandals for the first time this season – my feet felt so good afterwards. They’re the best!
Thank you,


I love my Oesh shoes.  My hips, knees and feet feel so much better than before.
Thank you for your research,


I am looking forward to receiving my order of the Lilac Townies and Phantom Athenas. In fact I bought my first pair of Athena sandals two years ago after having read an article about the founder of your firm in the Press, and I am glad I did.
Kind regards,

-Paraskevi (from Greece)

I just received the La Vida Sagebrush shoes, love the color, and they are a great fit. Thank you for the continued excellent service especially with the Coronavirus making life crazy for all of us trying to run a business,


Hello! I just got my very first order of OESH shoes. I absolutely love how they feel! I’ve never felt shoes like this before wow.


Dear OESH Geniuses,
OK, so I have MS, but I am still very active walking. However, my hips often hurt because my right leg drops once in a while when I walk. Lately, my right foot has also been acting up with crammed toes and a sore instep.
SO — I read about your shoes, and I knew I had to try them if I were to keep on my feet without pain. You never made the claim that your shoes could help people who have gait issues, but I want you to know that for me, these shoes, even though I have only had them one day, have been almost a miracle cure. Unless this is all in my head, my whole body has not felt better in months.

I noticed immediately how different I felt when I put on the shoes. I suddenly felt “balanced.” It’s hard to explain, and no, you did not pay me to write this. The width allowed my toes to spread. The solid sole kept me grounded. And the incredible soft inside made me feel as if I were walking on air. After about an hour, I forgot that I even had shoes on.
So, is this just a fluke? I really don’t think so. I have been “climbing up the ladder” of MS, so to speak. I couldn’t walk half a mile ten years ago, and now I am up to five miles a day. However, I am also 68, andthe walking on hard pavement has taken its toll mostly on my lower back and hips. Yesterday, after wearing your shoes for three hours, I felt as if I had a new body. I even slept last night without chronic pain.
Can a shoe do all this? I can’t say for sure. But I do know that wearing your shoes was the only change I made to my routine. So, I’ll keep in touch and let you know how the rest of this month goes. I expect I will find the same results: happy feet, happy hip, happy lower back, and I happier than ever me.


I forgot to mention that I really like the packing bags!  A nice touch and much more useful and better for
the environment.


Thank you for all you did for helping out health care workers with masks… Great community service!!
Also wanted to thank you for the redesign of the Dream!! I had been trying to “break in” my ones from last year & it just wasn’t working… I saw that you were helping with mask making & wanted to contribute! Since you had redesigned the Dream, I decided to give it another try…
These Dreams fit great from the time I got them & now are my favorite warm weather shoe!!
Thank you!!


Wow – your team is awesome! Thanks for stepping up.
Today I wore my newest OESH runners for the first time so when the La Vidas arrive I will be able to rotate them with my other new ones. Thanks for the article reference- it was helpful. At 70 I’m not running marathons but I do plan to keep on walking and nothing makes my cranky feet more comfy than your shoes and sandals!
Thanks again and I hope you all remain healthy and safe.

-Mary (from Canada)

Just got my Athenas. They couldn’t fit better! The sole has just enough cushion while still being sturdy.
And the straps are comfortable. I will definitely leave a good review on Facebook.


Thank you for making respirators to help with the COVID19 pandemic. We are grateful beyond words.


Thank you for what you are doing for our healthcare workers!!!




Hi, Oesh Team. I’ve been busy, but I want to let you know that I took your advice and ordered an 8.5 in the Dogwood Blossom Dreams, and the fit is perfect. I really appreciate the higher toe box, and the seamless design. The new material is so soft, and I even have a dress that’s a perfect color match! 

Thank you for using your technology to make washable ventilator masks. I’ve followed the development on Instagram. I’m thrilled to support a small business in my home state.




The Salon is amazing — had to order one more pair — wish I had more feet!!

Cheers and wow, they are so wonderful to wear


Also, thank you for using your resources to make respirators for health care workers during this covid crisis. It makes me proud to be an American. 

– Mary

Good afternoon,

It is so awesome to know of the masks and clips that OESH is making. I love my OESH shoes. Wouldn’t be able to walk without them literally. They have given me my life back. Hope you all have a blessed week.


Wow! Thanks, and this is just one of the reasons I am a very loyal repeat customer; the shoes are the first reason! And good job on the medical mask project!

You stay healthy too!


So grateful you are making these masks.  Thank you!


It is terrific that you are using your 3D printing capability to make masks for the healthcare workers. PROUD TO KNOW YOU.👍👍


I just received my Salon and Dream Shoes. Both are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn. 

Thanks for the shoes! 


Thank you Casey for doing this for our medical community! You rock!


I want you to know how honored and proud I am to in some small measure support your repurposing of your 3D print capability for the creation of the reusable respirator masks. I have both posted about this and personally sent the specs/url to several clinicians in other states and one business exec in the hope their contacts might help generate a multiplication of the effort!   Kudos to you all! Cheers, Casey! We’ve come a long way since meeting over the feta at Trader Joe’s!


Good afternoon,

😊I’m still learning about my feet and sizing and can honestly say I’m So happy to have come across your brand. Also, it’s pretty awesome that you are making masks to donate too. Thanks again & Stay healthy! 



Hi there.

Let me say how knocked out I am about your 3D mask effort. Bravo and thank you!


My Salons arrived yesterday and I have hardly taken them off.  They are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn I think.  

Thanks for making these shoes – and respirators.


I love your shoes and I love what you’re doing now!


Thank you, especially for using your skills to make protective masks for health care workers. God bless you.


Thank you for all that you are doing for others.


What GREAT service!
Thanks so much,


So great that you are helping with the PPE effort. I’m a 3D Printing Application Engineer and I really appreciate how you are using your company resources to do this!



Let me say that since I received your Salon shoes for Christmas from my daughter, I have praised them far and wide as the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn.

Thanks so much,


Hello OESH team.  First and foremost I LOVE these shoes.  I first heard about them on NPR on “How I Built This”.  I am an ER doc and after a knee surgery I really wanted something different than my Danskos.  Enter the OESH shoes.  I received these as a gift from my mother for my 40th Bday late Dec 2019.  I do wear them quite a bit and I have had many inquiries from friends.



Thank you for all you are doing to creatively and quickly address the needs of healthcare workers during this crisis. Thank you very much for your consideration, innovation and responsiveness to the community need.

Best regards,


It’s splendid that you’re making masks. I learned about you from a friend, who posted the information on Facebook. You’re doing the right work. And, coincidently, I needed a good pair of walking shoes.





Thank you for donating masks to health care workers!! Love your shoes!


Hi! Thanks so much, Oesh, for the masks going out into the world!

-Kirsten (in New York City)

So impressed and proud of your company’s ingenuity in these times. Hope this order helps. 


I hope that the 4 pairs of shoes that I recently ordered and received will help the cause (OESH editor: They sure did!).  You are doing a wonderful thing for our country.  I love your product and appreciate your compassion.


Only OESH forever!


Wow! Thanks for getting back to me so quickly! You are the best and were correct . I just came back from a 2 mile walk with my dog in the dreams and I am so excited! No slipping in the heel and my toes were very happy! Wish I had done the same with my black ones. Will save up $ and order another black and grey in size 10 soon! 


Good Afternoon, 

I received my 2 pair of Dreams (Dogwood Blossom and Grey) today. As with my other 3 pair of Dreams (Black, Blue, Grey) they are amazingly comfortable and a shoe I would wear all day every day without question. I am looking forward to getting the Salon and Townie’s this year as well. Those will be the only shoes in my closet. Thank you so much for making these and making it so convenient to acquire. You are awesome as usual without a doubt. Totally Recommend these shoes, if you aren’t wearing them you should be folks. Getting older isn’t easy and I like simple yet professional shoes for work. 


Thank you so much for sending the size 9 Dreams! I do prefer the extra toe room!

I agree that the back of the shoe feels wonderful! This is my first time trying an OESH shoe but I can compare to other brands that have rubbed and created blisters on my heel! It is also nice that my foot still feels secure and I don’t have to worry about it slipping out of the shoes. 

Thank you again for all of your help! The reviews mention the great customer service and I totally agree!


I just got a pair of your Townie shoes & want to order two more pairs. They are amazing!!



I received these new Dream shoes today and seriously, these are the most comfy flats I’ve ever put on.  Thank you again.  These shoes are AMAZING.


These are basically the only shoes I wear any more and I hope the size 8 in the new design will work just as well for me. I have 4 pairs of the old Dream Flats. They are the most comfortable shoes I have.

Thank you!


Thank you so much. You make the best shoes ever and I am so grateful you believe in and stand behind them!


Charlotte does indeed love her Dreams! Thanks for getting them out to us!

So far, so good, with my Leas

Thank you 


Hi Oesh!

Oh, how I love your shoes! I practice acupuncture and herbal medicine, and tell many of my patients about you. 

I love the red dreams and my pre-ordered townies!

I also pre-ordered the black new dreams.  

Thank you so much for being such an awesome company. I can’t wait to see where you continue to grow. 

-Pnina (in Israel)

Your Company Service is absolutely fantastic!!

I received the replacement Salons yesterday!!  Just put them on this evening & they are perfect!!

Thank you so very much!!


Thank you so much! First of all for your extremely prompt reply and for remedying the issue so easily!

I talk about you guys all of the time to my friends and family. They are becoming Oeshers as well!! 



Yay!! Thank you so much!  I have four pairs of your flats, one in each color, so now that makes 13 pairs of oesh shoes.  I love them so much!  You guys are the best!!  



Received my size 9 Dreams today!!!  They fit perfectly!!!  I think they will be my new favorite shoe.  Planning on wearing them to my daughter’s wedding.  I will be able to dance all night.  LOL

Thanks for making such an amazing shoe!!!


Thank you so much. Your customer service ROCKS!!


Wow, my box just arrived! The Salons are amazing…every bit what I hoped they would be. Nice to have a pair of shoes to wear in the house (think slippers) that don’t have fur in them, lol! They feel great! 

And, I’ve just taken 5 pair of LaVidas and Leas out of the washing machine to take with me. 

Thanks again. You guys are so reliable and responsive. 



My two pairs arrived this week and I absolutely adore them. So much that I ordered today another pair of the dreams (in grey this time), and a pair of Athena. I was able to use the Valentine weekend discount, so thank you!!

-Christine (in New Zealand) 

Thanks! Got the new Dreams and love them- sooo comfortable.



The Salons arrived this morning and they are wonderful. Thanks again for the quick turnaround on this. My knees feel better already!


Ok thank you very much!

I will never live in a pair of shoes other than OESH, since purchasing the sandals I have loved them, being only 30 and having bunion pain since my teens they have been a lifesaver. I’m also very excited to try the new dream flats.


Love the Salon Pebble and I’m jumping for joy with the OESH bag.

All good.

xoxo all around 



Thanks so much for your quick response. That’s great news! I’m excited to order some shoes now. 🙂

As for hearing about the shoes, it was on the How I Built This podcast. I love finding great products via trusted sources and am a huge fan of comfortable, ethically made footwear. 

Thanks so much!

-Heather (from Sweden)

My shoes arrived!  The Salons are FABULOUS, I love them.  Thanks for making it happen–


Dear Bob,

Fantastic! Loved Casey’s videos! I will be forwarding them to all my friends who still believe in arch support.



Salons are awesome!

I got my new grey Salons yesterday and they’ve only been off my feet to sleep.  I think they are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned.  I’ve been in barefoot/minimalist shoes for three years now and the change in footwear has eliminated my piriformis syndrome and chronic SI joint pain.  I’ve tried many brands, most of which have very thin soles (by design), which are not always the most comfortable for me.  I need zero drop, the wide toe box, and the flexible sole but I don’t necessarily need the greatest ground feel so the Oesh sole is perfect.  I also have the Dream flats in blue and will purchase them in black when they are restocked, along with a pair of Townies.  If you could figure out an ankle boot, I’d wear Oesh shoes every day of the year!  

Thank you!


Hey Bob,  thanks as always for your wonderful responses. I just placed the order. So excited about the Salons.  I’m now almost 100% Oesh!  

It was a quiet Thanksgiving here…. always good.  Hope yours was good too.

Best to you!


Thank you so much! I have received and printed the postage label.

And I love the Townie flats I purchased, also! They are perfect.


You are the bomb! So nice to come home to perfect size 11 townies – they are adorable. Thank you!


So happy – I just received my order!  I was unusually anxious to get the Leas because our niece, who is very ill, needs them ASAP to help her walk with less fear of falling.  As to my Salons, they are PERFECT.  They are just right to put on and take off easily when in and around the house.  I have been “barefooting” a lot around the house which has, I think, been good for a chronic pain where my second toe connects to the metatarsal area.  However, the Salons will also give me plenty of ease and roominess in that area plus they’re warm as well.  

Sorry that I was so concerned about the time it took to receive them.  I was really afraid they’d been swiped at delivery.  Hopefully you will be catching up soon after the Salon introduction.  Thanks to all for working the overtime, and for manufacturing the Salons in the USA.  They are great!  


This is my second pair of Salons. Love them. They’re good for walks and other exercise too.


Dear Sir or Madam,

This is AMAZING!  I, of course, am telling everyone what an amazing company you are.  🙂

SO looking forward to getting my new shoes and wearing them proudly.

Have a lovely holiday season.

-Amy Jo (from Switzerland)

Hi Bob, 

The grapefruit Lea’s have arrived, they are a lovely bright color! I am reminded again, immediately after putting them on, the amazing comfort they provide. For my feet honestly, no other shoe choice has equaled Oesh!

I will be eagerly watching for the future sole transformation & the opportunity to purchase, as they have been so therapeutic for my feet & knees

Your commitment to your customers is outstanding, I will continue to share my positive results with my family & friends, as always! 



I just received my size 8 Dream flats.  I wore them all day yesterday and love them!  Thanks! 


Dear OESH: The new flat I just received is exceptionally comfortable.   The thicker sole is so goooddd for my feet and they stay on and no slippage.   Wanting you to know this new design is like no other flat I have had with your exquisite sole.       I think I will be wearing them around the house alot no matter where I am.          Wishing you the best and the New Harvest Moon did shine over Oesh.   


Hello!! I received the size 11 Townies and love them!!! They fit perfectly!!! I hope that you will keep making these shoes!!💛  


Thanks! I can’t wait to get my Townies… but I must tell you, I think the Flatforms are your greatest invention thus far 😉


LOVE these Townies!  Loyal Oesher here.  You guys literally helped my feet heal from two neuromas and avoid surgery.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

And those summer platform sandals were gorgeous too 



Thank you so much for such a great and detailed response.  It was really helpful and just what I needed.  And I did already get a pair of Townie’s and am enjoying wearing them.  You have really great customer service and you went above and beyond.

Thank you,


Thank you so much for your attention and customer service. I got my shoes on Saturday and wore them to a family gathering. My sister-in-law and I had been discussing comfortable shoes the day before, as we often do, and when I arrived she took my shoe off my foot to try it on and took it over to show it to someone else! I had to hobble over to get it back from her! 🙂  An additional benefit to your shoes; I now happen to have a broken toe, and these are the most comfortable for that toe!

I will be recommending your company to all my friends.

Thanks again,


I don’t know what could be cooler than the dreams.


Thank you SO MUCH for your fantastic service as always!! I’m going to order one or 2 new pairs of OESH shoes, you’re just so professional and knowledgeable!! !  

Thanks again and again!!


Good Morning,

I received my sandals and shoes just a couple hours ago. I have to tell you I am wearing the sandals right now and am in love, love, love!! 


I am in love with these shoes. Have been wearing them for 4 hours and my feet still feel wonderful.

Thank you.


Good Friday Afternoon!

So, your order arrived so quick!  I received my shoes yesterday evening when I got home and I was so excited as they are better in person. I immediately put the shoes on and you are right they did ok for my very wide foot.

By the way I think your company has the best customer service that I have ever seen😊

Thanks So Much


Dear Oesh Team,

My shoes have arrived! The exchange process was so easy. The 9 is a perfect fit. I tried them on with no-show liners and walked on my carpeted bedroom floor. They are so comfortable and I can’t wait to wear them out of the house. The Dream hugs my foot and they stay on with no problems. I’m glad they’re washable, too. The red is a gorgeous shade, but I hope you will add some more fun colors to the Dream. I like supporting small businesses, especially ones in my home state. Thanks for having a  4th of July sale so I could try your shoes. 



Thank you so much for your amazing customer service! 


Just received my order. Thank you. LOVE THEM! Thank you!


Your customer service is super and I was easily able to exchange my flats for a larger size. The red is gorgeous. They’re so comfortable and the bouncy sole makes them great for walking everywhere. Most ballet flats have paper thin soles. My feet stay cool and comfortable even in hot weather. I’m thrilled to support a company based in my home state.




I love your OESH Dream flats. As a long distance runner for years, my plantar fasciitis can cause me pain in so many shoes, but not the Dream. I can go from work to playing with my toddler in the Dream flats and continue to be pain free since buying my first pair a while ago. I love that I can throw them in the wash too! I just bought my 4th pair from your promotion today so I can have one in each color.

My question for you all is: are you considering offering the Dream in a brown/tan/neutral color any time soon? I need this color for work and have been holding off on buying a competitor’s shoe in case you all might release something in that color in the future. Can you please let me know if that is something you are considering?

(next day)…Thank you for your prompt and kind reply! This is wonderful news for me. I will hold off longer on buying anything to see what new colors you all offer at the end of this summer so I can keep supporting a business where your customer service is so kind and thoughtful and where your product is wonderful.


Thank you!  I really appreciate that! I have not been able to purchase ready made shoes for over three years!  It has been a huge blessing and answer to prayer to find OESH shoes! 


Thank you SO MUCH! I wore my new OESH sandals all day yesterday, walking long distances and traveling in PERFECT comfort!! I’d been using orthotics the past 7 months, due to PF and Morton’s neuroma, which only gradually has gotten somewhat better… but one day with your sandals have already made a profound difference!!

Thank you again. You’ll be hearing from me again (with ONLY good news and further orders!!)



Just wanted to say thank you for exchanging the shoes to a size 9…they fit perfectly and are super comfortable!  They did arrive on Monday, but we were in NYC by then, so I didn’t get them until Wednesday.
Thank you for a great product and wonderful customer service!  I will be telling my friends!

Thank you so much. On Friday, I posted the flats back to you. I look forward to receiving the other pair
and will keep you posted. I do hope they fit correctly!
Your customer service is exemplary.
Best Regards,

Good morning,

I have been wearing OESH because of my knee arthritis for quite a while now and love them.  I wear the
La Vida.


You are correct on today’s morning delivery and I am smiling from ear to ear on my way to work flying with my new shoes. Thank you yes they are as you described Fantastic. Thank you. 

Thank you for thinking to help others like me. Be well!


Worth a try — I’ll give it a whirl!  Thank you very much for your creative efforts in trying to satisfy my request.  I can see why you won the 2018 Charlottesville Business Innovator of the Year award,



Hello, OESH.

I’m sorry to be pushy, but could you give me an update on this order? I was hoping to get married in these (“something blue”) sandals on July 5. If they won’t make it in time, I’d like to cancel the order. Thank you very much,

Thank you!! I was looking for shoes and then I thought — why would I wear anything else?


Cody and I took Willie kayaking last weekend and I wore my maroon 3D printed sandals. They worked GREAT in the water and didn’t cause any slipping when going from kayak to land! 


I am a true fan

I just received my shoes and sandals. The sandals are heaven on earth. I have a funny story to tell you about my orange shoes. My husband thought they were ugly but I love them because they are different and comfortable. We went out to dinner and I wore my shoes and he said that he couldn’t sit with me because of those shoes. I walked into the restaurant and this young woman looked at me and said those shoes are fly. We still laugh about that. I love those orange shoes and I love these gray sandals. Thank you.


I received my Oesh Dream flats today.  As someone with wide feet and a high instep, shoe shopping is a hard and frustrating thing to do.  

I love these flats.  They are incredibly comfortable and my feet are not spilling out the sides like they do on most flats.  They hug the feet perfectly and I am in shock at how comfortable they are. I am so happy I ordered these shoes!


Hi all

I just got your sandals for Morton’s neuroma and I cannot believe how much better I feel already.  



I received my first pair of Dreams on Friday. I showed them to my sister last night; she wanted a pair just like them, so I let her keep them. 🙂 So I’m ordering another pair for me!


I just have to say that I love this shoe. Not only is it comfortable, but it makes me happy to look down at my feet. They look pretty! At almost 70 years old, there’s not much to be vain about any more, but I love my feet in Dreams!


Dear Oesh,

When I finally got my dream shoe and wore it to the office the next day all I could say is, “Wow”. That was at the beginning of May 2019, and I have been wearing them 4 out of 5 days at the office. I wore them so much that my co-worker insist that I buy another pair in a different color. She even told another co-worker who has foot issues similar to mine (mortons neuroma) how happy I was. My fellow co-worker bought a pair of sandals in desperation. She was about to leave on vacation to Disneyland and did not know how she could manage walking around the park all day with her condition. She said she could not have done it without the sandals.

What amazed me about the Dream Shoe is that even though it is lacking arch support and a metatarsal support my feet have never felt better. I have no tingly toes or achy feet. The firmness of the sole was another surprise. I recall my podiatrist saying that a firm soled shoe is better. 

Thank you for creating such a great shoe!


An Update….The shoes arrived yesterday…Immediately wore them for the rest of the day…… I f I could give them 12 stars I would. On my way out today again with ‘my new best friends” on my feet….FABULOUS!!!!!


Hi, OESH Service Team!

I have previously ordered the white sneakers and a pair of OESH black dream flats and love them both.  I can go anywhere in the white leather sneakers and feel really comfortable. The Dream flats are the first dress shoes I have worn since 2005, as they are the only shoes that stop the pain from bunions on both feet. 

-Jo Anne

Got them and they fit great. Thank you for all of the help you have given me on all of my purchases. You guys are the best and hope your boss knows what a great team you are!!


Yes I have kept wearing these Celeste Artemis sandals for small amounts of time and the burning I’ve had for years is not as bad. I’m actually starting to like these shoes. However, once I’ve worn these for a while my other shoes feel weird. I guess that’s just the difference in the way the OESH soles are squishy firm. At the same time that I ordered the OESH shoes, I also ordered 8 pairs of Baretraps, 2 Oofahs, 1 fit flop, 2 sketchers and a couple of other kinds and have returned all but 1 Baretrap pair and the OESH pair. I guess that says a lot about your OESH sandals. Thanks for checking in.


How do you say OESH? Rhymes with Gosh??  Well, gosh these Oesh shoes have comforted the Morton’s neuroma with which I am plagued. Rhymes with Sheesh?? Sheesh! no more walking on marbles with the lace-ups and the sandals. Am I pleased? You bet!!! 6 STARS.

Thank you



I LOVE my Dream flats and wear them almost every day! I did purchase the gray (tines two!) and blue as well, in addition to a pair of the sandals. Most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn! 

Which begs the question…will y’all consider creating some lighter colors for spring and summer eventually? Even a taupe would help! I wear them to work as a librarian daily, even when they clash with my outfit. They’re that essential! 



Thank you I got my first pair a couple of weeks ago and love them. Great for my knees. Now I will have one in each color. I can run agility with my dog in them.



Is it possible to throw the Dream shoes into the washing mashing? What is the best way to clean them? {OESH ed. Absolutely yes! Remove the insocks and wash both the Dreams and insocks in a gentle cycle with cold water, then air dry overnight—they will sparkle in the morning!)

I wear them every single day. They are so comfortable, look nice in my professional office, and completely reduced the pain I have from a neuroma. I love them! I can’t wait to see the new styles you come out with. Can you make boots?



I absolutely LOVE my dreams!  Best, most comfortable shoe every AND it is dressy.  I was early in on the crowd funding, wish I’d bought more then!  Also my husband bought me a second pair, the grey, for Mother’s Day.  I have one request:  you need to make a pair for summer dresses!  How about a light tan pair to go with summer dresses and light pants?  I’d snap them up in a heartbeat.

Love the product!  Thanks


I really want to thank you for making such amazing shoes! I bought my first 2 pairs of OESH, La Vidas, and Artemis in January of this year and have worn them almost exclusively starting on the way home from Charlottesville where Carter was most helpful with our purchase. I am now free from my foot pain (injury plus plantar fasciitis) and knee pain. I attribute my new pain free status to the design of these shoes! Many Thanks Again!


I injured my foot over the weekend.  All my shoes were making it worse, then I tried my Dream flats and no pain!  I’ve been wearing them all week and my foot is healed.  These are really some awesome shoes!  


I meant to email you saying false alarm! They arrived here in Juneau almost right after my email haha. And I love them so much! I’ve been wearing 2-3 pairs of socks for the last 4 years due to my Morton’s Thank neuroma so these are amazing.



Hi, Oesh Service: I just received my size 9 blue Dreams and I love them. I had bunion surgery at the end of November and I can’t tell you how good it feels to be wearing cute shoes again…especially a pair that are good for my feet! I’ll be spreading the word. Plus, you made a mix-up easy and pleasant to correct. Thanks for your service.


I have been wearing the La Vida+ | Charcoal shoes for 3 months and have found them to be the most comfortable walking shoes that I have ever worn. They even mitigate the burning peripheral neuropathy in my feet.

Thank you too for your awesome customer service in finding a shoe that “works” for me.


Hi folks, 

I have purchased several pairs of shoes and sandals and always seem to miss coupons. Do you have any coming out soonish? I’d like another pair of La Vida’s before we sell our house and hit the road.

The new design for the shoe bottoms is FAR superior to the early ones. FAR more sturdy. 



Good afternoon. I received my gray size 10 flats last night. I absolutely love them. They are fantastic. And I am thrilled that I found your company. 

I would like to order another pair.

Many thanks. 


Just wanted to confirm that my order was at the apartment office. Thanks for sending them so quickly.  I love every pair!!


Well, I’ve never written a product review before, but I have to say these shoes are delightful—laced shoes that slip off easily and laces that don’t demand so much loosening and tightening to put them on again.  Not only that, they look so much nicer than any other walking/running shoe I’ve seen—neat on the foot.  Oh, and did I mention how comfortable?

Thank you.

-Mary Ann


Thanks for letting me know.

I’ll look forward to receiving the order here in Japan.  And I have loved your shoes for years.

They are the best thing that ever happened to my feet,

Best regards


I never dreamed my shoes would arrive so soon.  I ordered them on Friday afternoon and they arrived Monday by priority mail.  I immediately put them on. They feel great. I bought them after 3 months of pain from osteoarthritis of the knee.  I know that I will benefit greatly from wearing Oesh!



My shoes came and It felt like someone has sprinkled fairy dust over my feet. I tried the shoes with my
orthotics and they were uncomfortable. The next day I tried them without the orthotics and that’s when
the magic happened. I was able to walk my dogs pain free at a steady pace, without limping or my gait
being altered in any way. This is a such a big thing for me to be pain free and have my normal gait back.
Didn’t think I was going to be able to get back home before tears of joy and relief fell.
Ps – the UK do charge custom fees when items come in from abroad, this would be for all customers
across the UK. (£16.99) . Big raspberry to them but love and peace to OESH J
Thank you so much.

Dear OESH people,
Today my package arrived and I am so happy ! Both the LEA and DREAM fits wonderfully !

Thank you again for doing this for me.
Now I am ready for spring and the LEA are going with me to Portugal next month.
-Ann in Halifax

OESH shoes are extremely comfortable! I have the Elites and Athena sandals. I love the design concept
based on Dr. Kerrigan's research on feet, gait and eliminating stress to our joints.
Elites: I walked all over Italy in the Elites. Comfortable and supportive, even on cobblestones. They are
so light, practically weightless for a clog. And quiet! They're a great travel shoe.
Athena: A very comfortable and supportive sandal. I live in the tropics, and they will be perfect. They're
much cuter than they look in the photos.
For Chaco fans – I have worn the Chaco Z/1s since they started in 1989, traveling all over SEAsia, and I
swear by them. But they are also very heavy! While I'll still wear my Chacos for rougher trails and
trekking, the Athena are my go-to for everyday. They are light and bouncy and fun to walk in.
Customer service, and Bob in particular — Best in the world. OESH wants to get you into their
comfortable shoes, they know once you experience OESH, you'll be a customer for life. Bob helps you
find your perfect shoe style(s). Exchanges are painless. Love the free shipping. Thanks OESH!

Hello Oesh!

I’m majorly in love with your Dream flats! Thanks so much!


I have been searching for a place to leave a review, because I simply cannot say thank you enough or rave about your shoes and customer service. I order the dream flat during your Indiegogo campaign and have had them for a few months now.  I moved across the country after ordering the shoes, and my address did not get updated and it resulted in my shoes getting delivered to a place that I could not get them. I reached out to customer service and your team was AMAZING! They got my new address and sent me a totally new pair of shoes, no hassle no drama. Then when they arrived, the shoes were slightly too big for me, once again I reached out to customer care and the whole process was so simple, I got the shoes returned and the new shoes were at my house in what seemed like no time.

Now that I have the shoes, I want to rant not only about how great your customer service was, but also how amazing the shoes are. To do this, I think I would like to share a little bit about my shoe-journey and how I ended up backing your Indie GoGo campaign.

My husband is a marathon runner and is really really serious about his feet. When we got together and first started running together, he was always very concerned about my shoes. At the time I worked a very high stress job, and wore high heels most days. I would work 10-14 hour days, all in heels, lots of time on my feet. I was in pain all the time! I had been an avid runner earlier in my life, but suddenly my knees could not handle it any more. My husband had a strong suspicion that it was because of my work shoe choice. He convinced me to switch to wearing shoes with a foot shaped toe box. My feet and legs instantly started feeling much better (and I could run again!) but I experienced a less than warm reception about my new footwear choice at work. This kicked off my journey of trying to find a professional women’s shoe that I could wear in a business setting. I searched and search, tried on hundreds of pairs of shoes, and just nothing worked. Then, I found your Indiegogo campaign! Your shoes are truly amazing, they are so comfortable, flexible, they fit my feet perfectly, and very professional. I also LOVE the red pair that I have, because they add personality to my outfits. On a side note, my quest to find professional shoes that didn’t kill my legs kicked off another journey. As I mentioned above, my work had a less than warm reception when I stopped wearing heels. I realized that a workplace that only values women if they are wearing high heels, is not a workplace that values woman at all. So I got a new fabulous job to go with my new fabulous dream flats.

Once again, thank you thank you thank you,


Oh my god, that would be amazing! (And yes, you got the size right)

Your shoes are absolutely amazing. I tried on a pair of my back up Altras today and just couldn’t stand them… the sole doesn’t have that bouncy cushion that OESHs have. Best shoes in the world and I’ve told so many people about them already. Thank you again!


Thank you so much for your prompt and personal reply.  I am NOT accustomed to “hearing” a real person’s voice through email communication with a company!  That was a treat.

You were correct; I pulled them out of the mailbox this afternoon.  Lo and behold, THEY FIT!  I am beyond pleased.  I’ll spare you my long history of shoe grief; suffice it to say, this whole experience has been a rarity indeed.  Thank you so much!  I’ll be stalking your website to see when you offer more colors I like (teal and dark purple, please!!).

I love the free shipping.  I realize it’s bundled in the cost and nothing is free, but I LOVE seeing the total cost from the very beginning of shopping instead of waiting till some unknown point in the checkout process. J


Thanks so much!  Both pairs of these Dreams are for my mother,

And these are the only shoes she can wear now.


Dear Oesh Team,

I bought the sneakers and the clogs last Friday and so far, they’re amazing!  Have worn sneakers to work two days in a row and the difference from what I was wearing (which was still zero drop and wide toe box but not cushioned enough) is incredible.  I feel much much better so far.  Thank you for making these amazing shoes!  The guy who helped me at the factory on Saturday was also really nice and helpful and answered my questions.  Very positive experience.

My husband is interested in the shoes too but he wears an 11.5-12 in mens I believe.  It looks like you go up to an 11 in men’s if I’m converting the sizes right.  Is that correct?  [OESH ed: we comfortably fit a men’s 12 (an OESH 13) in the LV+ and Lea with a full size run in men’s Sandals, too.]

Thank you so much!!


I appreciate knowing about Shoe Goo repair and the possibility of a new pair!  I live in my shoes for walking, Tai chi and more.  It is a pleasure to do business with your company, with a great product and excellent customer service.

Thanks again,


Just received your dream shoes Thanks they fit like a Dream.

Very few shoes are comfortable and these are a perfect fit as they stretch to accommodate my wide feet but grip on my narrow heels I would recommend these Oesh shoes and sandals Thank you It is a pity you do not have a shop in England.

Thanks again



I received my purple Athena sandals and they are fabulous! Thank you so much for going above and beyond with your customer service by making custom purple sandals for me! It’s snowing outside right now, but I’m so looking forward to wearing them when it warms up! I’ve worn them around the house, and they are SOOO comfortable…

Thank you, thank you!


I have purchased your shoes in the past and think they are absolutely excellent.  Do you have an outlet in Canada?  I have many problems with my feet and there are times when only my Oesh shoes are wearable.   Thank you again for producing such wonderful shoes.


My essential black dreams size 9 arrived today and they are the perfect fit. I am soooooooooooooo
happy! There is absolutely no elegant shoe that I can wear apart from these! I have tried all sorts and
nothing was even slightly wearable. Thank you so much for your patience and for being there and doing
all you do. I am now fully an OESHer. <3.


Thank you! These shoes are awesome and different and I’m excited.


Thanks again!! I can’t wait to see my Mom wear them in France and love them as much as I do mine!!!


Dear Friends:
(I feel like you are my friends because God has used your shoes to heal my foot problems!)
Thanks so much!
Blessings and happy New Year!


I have never ever been able to wear ballet flats before, but I wore my new Dream flats all day on
Christmas and it felt like I was wearing slippers! Is there any chance you’ll make some boots? It would be
wonderful to have boots that are as comfortable as your Dreams and Elites!


Got my new dream flats today and LOVE them.  Thank you 🙂
My mom saw my dream flats and now wants a pair.
Thank you!


Thank you. I’ll ship them out tomorrow. Greatly appreciate the fantastic customer service you guys
always provide.

By the way, I recommended OESH to an older family friend who has been struggling with foot problems
for years. She bought a pair and told me she wore them all day on the first day with no pain. Amazing!!!
All the best,


You absolutely live up to your claim that emails will be answered at breakneck speed!
Thank you.


These Dreams are fantastic–I ordered several more pairs.


I just placed a new order.  I really love these sneakers.
Again, your customer service is amazing.  The sooner the new shoes get here the better.  My girlfriend
and I are taking a 2 week holiday to Italy.  So I want to get the sneakers broken in.
Thank you again.


I received my new shoes today! So easy! Great customer service. I appreciate the no-cost shipping.
The shoes are great and a good fit. Thanks,


I have enjoyed my new LaVida shoes, it made my toes so happy!


I’ve received the order below and am so pleased. Lea is comfortable and fits very well –
Thank you


Hello Oesh-

Just received my red flats that I ordered during the fundraising campaign. I have to say they are beautiful shoes!

They fit great.

Keep doing what you’re doing!


I just received my shoes today and love the way they feel!  I bought black, grey, and blue ones.



I received my shoes today and I love them! I think they should be called Heaven rather than Dream!

Thank you,


Mine have arrived just in time for the warm weather. They are just lovely! Many thanks.

Hi Bob,

I received my Dreams. They are soooo comfortable! Like a dream come true😊 Thank you so much,


I just wanted you to know that my daughter loves both pairs of her OESH shoes. She was so surprised to get them, and then was delighted that they fit well, felt comfortable, had enough toe room (she’s a barefoot gal whenever possible), are zero drop, and did not hurt her feet after wearing them for hours. She gave me glowing reports on each pair.



First of all I just wanted to thank you for making these amazing shoes. Not only are they even more beautiful in person, they are the first dress shoes in years that my feet didn’t immediately recoil from. It is so amazing being able to put my orthotic in them without it jamming my foot, so I can look forward to actually being able to stand in them for an extended period of time.

Thank you again,


Dear OESH Service Team-

I’m keeping the size 12’s Dream OESHs as they fit the best when wearing my Correct Toes.  I just can’t get over how nice they make my feet look!!!  Even though it’s a wide shoe, my foot looks tapered and feminine!!!!!!! The shoes are fantastic, the uppers are stretchy yet hold the foot in and the sole really does have width to it.  By far the most impressive thing to me is how nice they make the foot look in a flat!  My foot doesn’t look wide at all in them — great styling.


Yes, thank you, Bob! You always have wonderful customer service and I know I’ve told you this, but OESH shoes have saved me so many times with career life, being active, and general sanity!

I hope you have a wonderful holiday this week!


Hello Team Oesh,

Thank you so much for going the extra mile and providing a shipping label! I am so grateful.

Whenever I talk about your amazing shoes, I also note your amazing customer service: you all are the best!

I can’t wait to be able to model the ruby Dream around town and tell folks all about them. I want to send you lots and lots of business so there will be lots and lots of innovative and smart Oesh designs like the Dream!

Happy thanksgiving!


Thank you Bob!

So thankful for the excellent customer service you provide, quick response always & so much help with any questions I throw at you!!!

I took the plunge & ordered the 3 pair with the holiday coupon and so looking forward to receiving the Lea cranberry (8.5) LaVida charcoal (8.5) and the Dream (9) heather grey!

I had an injury jumping out of my Grandkids playhouse last summer, to escape wasps! I attempted to spray the nest and they came out with a fury after me! I probably should have let them sting me…but the Grands & I call it Grandma’s great bee rescue!

Long story short (still a bit long!) 😉 I went to a foot doctor & they told me I was wearing the wrong shoes! My wonderful Oesh LaVidas, no all around or arch support they said! They suggested Nike, New Balance, Asics, ect., I tried them for almost a year, my right foot Morton’s Neuroma stated acting up & the right knee started hurting, could have been in part from the fall but I decided to go back to my Oesh shoes and am finding much less pain!

I feel the “professionals” did not give me the best direction in my shoe selection!

So I am back as a loyal customer and appreciate so much the new selections, beautiful choices!

Very thankful for your assistance with the size change & will keep you posted when they arrive as to the fit!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving also!





Thanks for you reassurance! My shoes have now arrived  (on my birthday, so that was a nice surprise!) and I have been wandering around the house in complete awe at the comfort of these shoes!

I will be heading off to work shortly, knowing I will feel comfortable all day .

Many thanks from me in Australia!

Kind Regards,


Yea!  They are here and I love them!  They are so comfortable and I believe they are going to help my knee.  Let me know when the next sale is.


Good Afternoon,

I just wanted to let you know that I received my first pair of Dream shoes today and haven’t taken them off since I opened the box. They are amazing, in fact I just ordered two more pair. These are fantastic. I can’t wait to show them off at work to all the ladies and let them in on the secret. Thank you so much for making these. You are awesome.


My dream flats arrived today. I love them!!! Ordered all the other colors available. And if you make them in any other colors I’ll order those too. I feel like throwing all my other shoes away and wearing only these for the rest of my life!!!


Hi Bob,

I got my Dreams today, have to say that they did feel awesome.

Those Lea in Cranberry are gorgeous…I am sure to own a pair soon. Just to let you know…I just wore through my second pair of Oxford LaVidas…I will replace them as the navy is a wardrobe staple for me.

Hadn’t looked at the website in a while, looks really nice!



Wow, I received my new Dream flats a couple of days ago.  I love, love, love them!  I’m so happy I ordered them in 2 more colors too!  Great job you guys.  A home run!!!


Hi Oesh,

I just received my first pair of ballerina flats through your Indiegogo campaign.  The design is effing brilliant, and I absolutely love them.  I normally wear a D or E Width shoe, but they’re often too sloppy around the heel, and slide right off my feet.

Thank you,


I hope you are doing great.
The Dream is the dream… literally.
Allow me to tell you that you have the best shoes in the world. I always talk about them to anyone
around me with feet/ knee problems and aches. Online ordering discourages the older women in my
country. But I keep on encouraging everyone and give them my shoes to try and see how they feel.
OESH is a brand I am beyond glad it exists.
Thank you 🙂
And best of luck on The Dream project!!
Have a wonderful day


Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. My sandals order got through.
Great about the Dream shoe project. Was so happy to see and participate at IndieGoGo, look forward to
trying them later in the year. Have shared link with others.
Best wishes to everyone at Oesh. Fantastic shoes, life changing and liberating for many women


Yes, the world is ready for the Dream!!!! The world desperately needs this. I am amongst the lucky ones
who can wear the La Vida at work, as we have no dress code, but many other women cannot (and I’d
like to wear something that goes better with dresses too 😉 ). Looking forward!


I had to write back to tell you how much I love my new Oesh shoes!  I have two pairs and wear one to
work and one at home.  I live on 5 acres and am outside all the time gardening, weeding, etc.  I had the
worst pain from arthritis and Morton’s neuroma.  I tried several pairs of shoes and various inserts with
no relief.  It got so bad surgery was suggested, and I had to get carried into the house by my husband
after working in the yard too long one afternoon….just so frustrating.  Then I found Oesh! I have had
NO pain what so ever since I started wearing them.  I can be on my feet all day working at the Mayo
Clinic, and come home, switch to the sneakers and keep on going.  I have reduced swelling as well.
What a god send! Thanks so very much for giving me direction on sizes and styles.  I am an Oesher for


I love my OESH Shoes!


Thank you for sending me the Athena Sandals, which I am wearing at home, especially when doing
kitchen work.  I must say that they are a remarkable cushion for my ceramic tile kitchen floor!  They are
a totally new experience in walking, and even in standing still; remarkably, I get more exercise just from
*standing still* in the sandals than from any other shoes that I have ever had.
Amazingly, even though my muscles are tired and a bit charley-horsed after I wear them, my sore knee
feels better!
Thank you very much for this extraordinary product line and for your terrific service.


Thank you Bob for making it so easy to switch.  Oesh are my favorite shoes and I have many pairs.  I have
told all my friends about the shoes.  People who I don’t even know have made inquiries about the shoes.
I let them know about the website.
Looking forwards to receiving my other pair.
Thanks again,


THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES OVER!!  I received both my Artemis sandals and my La Vida’s yesterday.
The sandals fit so much better in the 8’s.  I wore them yesterday and received several compliments on
how cute they are!  Comfy AND cute—can’t get much better than that!!
I bought the La Vida’s for my farm shoes—I do a ton of walking on rough ground, and these soles look
like they will be perfect for that!!
Thank you again for making a SUPERB product and for your TERRIFIC customer service!  I’m so thrilled
with all my OESH shoes!!


First day of a 2-week European trip. This marker was in Barcelona. Shoes were like waking in pillows,
around town, on cobblestone streets and dusty walking trails. They still look new.
Love them. My friend will be shopping on your website.


Good Morning! I received my sandals and they feel amazing! I can’t believe how comfortable they are!
My Morton’s Neuroma is almost undetected when wearing them! Thank you so much for making such a
great sandal! I thought my sandal days were over when I developed this problem but not anymore❣️


OOOOoooh!  Super!  Thanks!!  I was just telling some friends about OESH shoes last evening!  I’m
excited to try the sandals!
Thanks again for your help!


Okay Oesh, Pencil me in as an official Oesher. 😉 I woke up and put my new shoes on first thing. I wore
them through the house with no issues at all. At first the right one seemed a little tighter, but I adjusted
quickly and realized that the shoes are wildly comfortable. …really really comfortable. I wore them for
hours until I decided to kick back and relax for awhile. I also took them for a quick spin outside and
spilled olive oil on them by accident while cooking…aka: I have claimed them as my own. Haha.
When I pondered why I had an issue yesterday I remembered that I had walked for about 4 miles shortly
before receiving my shoes. The shoes I have been wearing prior to the Oesh do little to nothing for the
benefit of my feet. They always swell and writhe in pain once I stop moving. Im looking forward to
hitting the trail in the Oesh, standing in them, and even cooking more in them…
Thank you for all the communication and assistance! I will be ordering more of these in the future!!


I love the sandals. Lightweight and a little spongy. Gives a real bounce to the foot. Just bought my
second pair. Now I have both the Athena and Artemis. Like both.


Hi Bob,

Thank you so much for your kind words. I did love the sandals and look forward to watching your company grow because you really have created a great product!


Hey Bob

Well we didn’t quite climb Mt. Everest (next lifetime) but my amazing OESH shoes took me most of the way to Mardi Himal base camp in Nepal – had to change to boots for the snow.

Pic #2 is on the trek back from the famous Tiger’s Nest Monastery, perched on a cliff in Bhutan – it’s breathtaking! Again, OESH came through!

Finally, some poolside r&r in Bali and a temple visit.

On our way home from our 6 week awesome adventure and not a day went by that I wasn’t grateful for the comfort of my OESH shoes, which now have taken me many miles and built up even more memories.

Thanks again!

🙏🏻 Namaste


Dear Bob and all Oesh staff,

Well, my conscience has been pricking me for not writing a thank-you note sooner…it is time!
Honestly I was so very discouraged about my feet and was losing much quality of life due to inability to even go for a walk. (See above letter).

Since the day that I picked up my shoes in Washington state on Mar. 26th, I have had hope!! The instructions you sent said to wear them only an hour or two the first few days, but they felt so good that I just kept wearing them! And walking! And working! And getting stuff done without pain! My foot problems have not disappeared yet because the few times I have tried wearing some of my other (very expensive) shoe brands, the pain and discomfort come right back. So now I am basically just living in my Lea Storm Clouds and Artemis sandals all the time! And coping well. In fact, just this morning I ordered the Athena sandals as well, just to have another sandal option without the toe strap. 

I know that my feet are on their way to healing and being restored to proper function, and I can’t thank you enough for your great product. Also your great customer service, responding to my email within half an hour—that also gave me hope. And the phrase you used “We know what we are doing here” has really stuck with me and I have to agree that yes, you do! When it comes to restoring problem feet through the use of proper footwear, I’d say that you definitely do! 

Thank you again!

I just bought my fourth pair of Oesh shoes. I have osteo arthritis in both knees and have had a recent knee replacement. These shoes have been the best option for me for the last two years. They have plenty of support for my feet, and being that they don’t slope up at the heal, they don’t put extra pressure on my knees so I don’t feel as much pain after walking a lot. I’ve mostly worn the LaVidas but I also wear the Elites at work since they look a little nicer for the office, and I find them comfortable as well. I’m so glad I found OESH!


Best shoes ever. As a physician who performs procedures, I need to stand in place for long periods at a time. I was having issues with my feet. It was affecting my ability to work effectively and truly had me concerned. I tried all sorts of shoes including the best sneakers, Danskos and even Birkenstocks to no avail. Then I came across Oesh and their Elite shoes. I tried them on at their local store/workshop. And the rest as they say, is history. Two years later, and far from Virginia, I recently ordered my second pair online. I will always only wear my Elites to work. Life-changing good!


Want to tell you that I do absolutely love my OESH shoes. I get people asking me all the time where I got them from and send them to your site. I quit running for a long time because my feet just hurt. I run every other day now because of your shoes. This is just one of those things that happens, these were the second pair I bought and loved my first pair completely worn out :). Was actually debating on buying a third pair in orange to wear just for running as I wear them all day at work too.

Thanks a bunch,


And thanks again for your great shoes. They are actually helping me with my IT band problem! 

Best wishes,


Hi folks,

I want to tell you that these are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn!!

I purchased your sandals after reading about the man who walked the entire appalachian trail in Oesh sandals

I was not disappointed


Great, thank you so much.  I originally purchased these shoes when I was suffering from Plantar and they really helped me.  I thankfully don’t have it anymore, I still love these shoes for Zumba – the comfort and the colors are great.

Thank you again.


My Oxford La Vidas arrived today… Annnd, my feet are in heaven…..!!!


These sneakers are the best. I got them just before a trip to Disney World and I am so glad I did! Tons of nonstop walking over 6 days and I was the only one not complaining about sore feet after the first day. Even at the end of the week, no pain. If I wear shoes with less support I generally end up with back pain as well and experienced none of that this trip. These shoes are amazing. I did wear my normal sandals out the last night and totally regret not just wearing the sneakers . Might be time to get some OESH sandals as well!


I have had painful feet for several years with fallen arches and bunions. I researched shoes that could help alleviate the pain but also look professional for work and I found OESH. I purchased a pair of the Elites in jet black and I am thrilled with them! They are extremely comfortable with or without my orthotics and they look great for work or to wear casually! I love them so much that I just purchased a pair of Elites in dark earth! They are well made shoes and very light weight! My feet are happy for the first time in years! My next purchase will be the La Vidas!! The quality of customer service is as excellent as the quality of their shoes!


My 2 pair of Oesh shoes are the only ones I wear now. my feet have improved so much that even though I may put on a more socially appropriate pair I always end up in the Oesh. hard to believe how much they have helped.

Thanks again,


My husband was suitably amazed by the 17 pairs. I had to gently explain that I bought some for other people😁I think I’ve been with Oesh almost from the beginning.

And I do mention Oesh whenever I’m with females, especially those with long work hours on their feet (nurses, teachers, etc.).

The new Leas are gorgeous and on my feet right now. These are so beautiful, even my husband likes them!

Did I mention they’re beautiful and feel great?

Still a confirmed Oesher at 67!


After a significant knee injury, I researched shoes that might help. As an RN who works 12 plus hour night shifts, I decided to try OESH. At first, I alternated “nurses shoes” with OESH. I have definitely chosen OESH and absolutely feel the difference.



Couldn’t live without my OESH!


I love my Elites. Have had them for six months now and wear them everyday to work. I stand and walk all day long and my knees, ankles and feet are not as painful as before my purchase. I have the LaVida style also and I like them as well, just can’t wear them to work.


Dear OESH team,

I’ve been thinking of you because I am living the Houston flooding. As of yesterday, my family and house are ok (live close to Brazos River). In my time of physical work, I reached for my OESH and put them to work! My feet, despite countless steps and stairs, are well. Now I head to my hospital to work…

Thank you!


Hi, I ordered these shoes a couple of weeks ago. I LOVE them, I think I can skip my Mortons Neuroma shot because of your shoes. THANK YOU!


Hi Bob and Casey,

I have severe hip pain related to my needing a four level fusion of my lumbar spine.  I also am still recovering from septic arthritis of my left knee (strep) caused by a cortisone shot.    Unfortunately, pain has become an unwanted companion.

One day I wore the Elites and really seemed to feel like the pain backed off in a very noticeable way.  I am beginning to wear the Elites around the house to continue my “study.”

I will keep you posted.  I think of the Elites as dressy shoes.

For me, the possibility that a pair of shoes will help me seems like such a godsend.  Everyday seems to be dictated by pain.

I just want to thank you for “being there” and being a part of our community.  I love your shoes.


Hi Bob,

Thank you for your clear explanation of how the custom sandal will help my toe stress fracture and hopefully prevent any future fractures.  It is really great that I will be able to wear the sandals without a lift.  And you will add a little length so my big toe won’t hang over – hooray! Love this shoe customizing 🙂

I have put the 6S sandals in the mail. I will take care of Paypal ASAP.

Magnificent customer service!

Bob, thank you so much,


Just wanted to tell you how much I love your shoes. I have arthritis in my knees as well as Plantar Fasciitis, so I did an online search and discovered your shoes. I was a little nervous to buy shoes online, but I figured I should try them because store bought shoes haven’t helped my knees much. I bought a pair of the LaVida 2.0s. I. LOVE. THEM. I can now do much more walking than I could do with other tennis shoes. My feet don’t feel cramped or sore afterwards. I also bought a pair of the Elites to wear to work. They look really good with nicer pants or with jeans, and again my feet feel so good in them. I did have to send my first pair of those back because they were a little too big (my personal opinion is that those shoes run big) so I got a half size smaller, and the new ones fit perfectly. Exchanging them was really easy. In a few months I’ll be trying out the sandals. So thanks!!


OESH keeps getting better and better.  I began wearing OESH shoes when they first came out due to long standing foot and knee pain, which are now gone.  Family members have gotten on board and now family from 20 to 90 years old wear OESH shoes.   They are so comfortable – like wearing pillows on your feet, but still supportive.  With the varied style and color options and amazing customer service there is no need for any shoe but an OESH.

Hello from Canada

I just wanted to let you know that since I started wearing the OESH tennis shoes I have lost 1/2 size in shoe size. I have worn orthopaedic shoes, had very expensive inserts fit for me over many years and had the supportive shoes that also cost a small fortune.

I have metatarsal osteoarthritis along with fallen arches and pronated feet.

Now that I wear OESH shoes I have rebuilt the muscles in my arches and because of this my feet are back to my smaller size and stronger. The osteoarthritis bothers me much less.

I am a nurse and work 8 hr shifts and they prefer I wear white leather when possible but have been wearing you tennis shoes. If you have a call for nurses shoes it would be awesome to have white leather elites.

I never leave reviews but these are worth a word from a very satisfied customer.

Thank you!
