This is a cute shoe but I need a wider width than this. Also, I didn't see it in the picture but the arch between the black heel and toe is visible and the cork look. Seems odd on a dress shoe but it does give very good arch support. Have to return them, though.

This was a very nice shoe, but I had to return it as it was too high for me. I am not that stable on my feet and did not want to take a chance that I could fall.

Beautiful shoe in all ways. It's my buniony feet that are the problem. Wide was sold out so I gave the M a try. Unsuccessfully. If your feet are anywhere normal you'll love these.

Luv these shoes! I have very flat feet and have to have good arch support in my shoes now. Tried many different brands but none felt as good or looked as cute as these. They get two thumbs up ??

Wanted shoes to wear in the house and these are the winners. Comfy, wiggle room for busy toes, support for major ankle reconstruction, velcro fastener, heel strap w/ leather covering elastic, footbed is oh, so nice. Suggest trying a couple of sizes. I hope I am as pleased a week from now. Have never heard of this mfgr. but I'll be watching for them now. They are also quiet on wood floors.

I have very problematic feet, and need arch support along with metatarsal support in my shoes. I had given up on any sort of heels, and had resigned myself to life of orthotic sneakers and Dansko clogs until I tried these on. They are narrow, but stretchable. I usually wear 9 in sandals and 9.5 in closed toe shoes. These were narrow to the point of pain, but I got out hair dryer, blasted them, then wore them with thick thick socks, repeat. They stretched just enough to fit me like a glove. I can wear them the whole day. They are classy enough to wear anywhere, very nice with low heel, and quirky with the stitch pattern (I hot gray red black one, its gorgeous) no keep things interesting. VERY comfortable.

These boots are really stylish and very comfortable. I was worried due to other reviews about the elastic on the back and having my jeans show through but haven't had any problems. They are a little more challenging to put on because they are elastic in the back, but other than that they are comfortable and I've received many compliments.

These shoes are VERY narrow towards the toe area. I have plantar faciitis and these shoes supported my arch very well. The velcro strap across the front works well to adjust the fit. The height of the heel was just right. I was disappointed that I couldn't keep these shoes because they were too narrow and I'm not sure that ordering the next size up would help that at all.

I bought these shoes because I have plantar faciitis and needed good arch support. These shoes fit the bill! They are so comfortable and stylish. The velcro strap really stays put. They feel much better than Birkenstocks. I wish I could wear them all winter long but the open back prevents that from happening. The leather is very soft and the shoe is lightweight. I get compliments on these shoes often.

Clunky look, wide footbed. Velcro strap is not a strong enough fastener. Very light and very comfortable. Not my favorites but a useful change off pace as a casual supportive Saturday errand day shoe

The material used looks inexpensive on uppers almost stiff like plastic. But more importantly strap too short & does not overlap Velcro securely. Foot bed feels narrow to size of shoe.

I'd read some really good reviews of this boot in a few blogs so I gave them a try. They definitely fit my 15.5" calves with lots of stretchy room for pants. The zipper made putting my legs in with pants a little bit of a chore. The zipper is a half zipper at the bottom of the boot so you have to dig around in there to move your pants/legging around so you can't seem them bunching around the ankle area. The ample accommodation for wide calves comes from the stretchy, sweater-like, material around the back of the boot. Because it's not leather, I could really see where my pants were all squished around my ankles. I'm a teacher and I stand all day, so I'm not sure the soles would be forgiving after the 7th hour standing, and my left heel was slipping in them when I walked around so I'm sure a blister would've been imminent. So glad for the easy return process from Zappos so I'll keep looking for the perfect boot!

I have very low volume feet, and these sandals are excellent for that. Because the straps adjust over both the foot and ankle, the shoe can be tightened snugly enough to be secure. The sandals are quite comfortable, and have excellent arch support. They are also fancy enough to be able to be dressed up. Great sandal.

OK. So these are super cute! The heel is a little tight and rubs a bit but I'm hoping they will loosen up as I've decided to keep them! The fabric is a really nice rich look and texture! and is very stretchy so a larger calf should not be an issue. Also, it adds a twist of brown to the black boot that will allow brown clothing to match. The boot looks well made and with a nicely gripping bottom. This boot could be dressed up or down. Again, super cute!

Aetrex is my go-to brand for shoes because they have good arch support and are quality materials and style. This boot, however, really missed the mark. It looks cute but I could hardly get it on because the zipper was too short, although placement might be the issue here. I did like the sweater fabric on the boot, gave it a cute and casual look good for everyday wear. If you have a narrow foot this would work better than for those with normal or wide feet. You may consider sizing up a half size when ordering.

Nice boot but it felt too tight around the arch towards the toes; it was also a bit large in the ankle which caused my feet to slip. The leather is nice and the style is okay, a bit more of a rounded toe than I prefer. Aetrex is my go-to brand for shoes but this one just missed the mark for me.

I tried literally four other similar styles before I finally settled on these AMAZING shoes. They have fantastic arch support, look adorable, work with pants or skirts and were comfortable to wear right out of the box. I have arthritis in my feet and have a hard time finding comfortable shoes that I can wear for business or a date night that don't look clunky. These are the only shoes I can wear for a 12 hour day and still feel like a human being at the end of it. I had an all day event at the Museum of Natural History (marble and terrazzo floors!) a few weeks ago, and got through it without even thinking about the pain in my feet - because THERE WASN'T ANY! Others have complained about the high zipper in the back; this hasn't bothered me at all. I am buying these shoes in burgundy as well before they are sold out.

I discovered Aetrex this past summer when I tried a pair of sandals. I suffer with bilateral plantar fasciitis and HAVE to wear supportive footwear. As fall approached I needed to find a comfortable closed toe shoe to wear. Since I had such good luck with their sandals I decided to give these a try and they didn't disappoint. I generally wear a wide width but can wear the standard with in this brand. These shoes are very comfortable and offer enough toe space. The shoe required no break in time. Will definitely buy more from the Aetrex family and Zappos!

very nice shoe, good quality, good insole, sadly too small and too narrow for my slightly larger than average size 11 foot. Of course, no one makes womens 11 1/2, so thanks zappos for a great return policy-- I can keep HOPING that some of the size 11 shoes are a bit larger rather than smaller and every once in a while I do find a shoe that fits!

The shoe looks good but the Velcro strap scratches my foot and the arch support seems to be off a bit for my comfort.
