I Bought the Gemini for. 2 week touring vacation to Hawaii and the shoe did not disappoint me. I used my custom orthotics with them and the shoe gave wonderful support. I bought my usual size and they were perfect! I have overpronation issues and a totally flat arch, plus issues with plantar fasciitis in the left foot. This shoe worked well for me and kept my feet comfortable. I will buy another pair soon. And they looked great!
About This Item
Perfect for me in every way
I am a type 1 diabetic with Charcot foot in both feet. My foot specialist wants me to have a rocker bottom. . I have tried so many shoes that were just okay, but the rockers made me very unstable. With these I didn't even need a break in period. I could have walked a mile right from the start. I am sold. I will be buying more in colors other than white. I do love the white though. These are 100% better than the Drew Tuscany. Just the shoe I've been waiting for. Thank you Drew!
I have various joint problems and need a supportive shoe. I fell in love with Drew sandals last summer so decided to give the walking shoe a try. So comfortable! They look great too. I wear them to school (I'm a teacher) & have gotten many compliments. I bought the grey and am considering getting the white too.
This is my second pair of the Gemini walking shoes. Last year I bought them in white, and wore them very often. So often they were looking a bit dingy! So I tried the pair in gray and I'm very happy with them. Honestly I think they do look better in white, but gray is a nice change. To me they are very comfortable and offer lots of support.
Perfect for my needs
This is my second pair of these shoes. I remove both insoles to use my full length orthotics, and these shoes are comfortable for my toes. I have used my first pair for routine wear outside the house, including travel with a lot of walking. I bought the second pair to use as my "house" shoes, also with orthotics, and they're filling my needs nicely.
Interesting mix of fabics and nice selection of colors
I had trouble getting into the shoe and I purchased a wide. I have always found Drew shoes and boots to be easier to get into and love the way they cushion my feet. I have hammer toe, so I need a large toe box, both wide and deep. Drew gives me that, except for the Gemini, which I have a hard time cramming my feet into.
Too narrow in the toe box and really wide and even puffy in the middle
These shows look cute in photos, but are really rather old fashioned looking once you wear then. They feel very awkward with the narrow toe and the really wide and puffy looking middle. Very uncomfortable. Really unattractive especially once worn.
