This is the most comfortable shoe I have ever owned. As a runner arch support is very important to me, plus they are cute enough to wear with skinny jeans. Highly recommend.

I wear between either 8.5 or 9 and I ordered 8.5. This boot fits if I don't use thick socks but it's snug. The problem is that it is tight through the calf and I don't have large calves. I decided to return them even though they appear to be of good quality.

Best shoe ever. Ultra comfortable, great arch support - I didn't need my orthotics thanks to the great insole. I only wish it came in a slightly more dressy version.

I desperately needed an ballet flat for commuting to work that had arch support and enough cushioning for trudging around NYC, while looking polished in skirts and pants. I had high hopes for this shoe, since I love the Aetrex sandals with the orthotic memory foam footbed. When they arrived, they were attractive and had the look I wanted, but I was disappointed that they didn't feel more cushioned in the footbed. The sole felt flat to me, like I was too close to the pavement. However, they were fine. Had the story ended there, they would have rated a solid 3 stars. The real disappointment came about 2 months into using this shoe when complete inexplicably and out of the blue, they gave me such a bad blister during my morning commute that my heel was bleeding by the time I got to work. Since I didn't have anything else to wear instead, I slapped a bandaid on my heel and wore them again the next day when, for some reason, the opposite shoe kept falling off my foot. I had to do a bizarre foot clench/limp to walk the final few blocks to work so I wouldn't lose the shoe (mind you, with the other shoe rubbing up against my bandaged heel). All this drama from my "comfortable" commuting shoes. I wish I could return them, but I've worn them for a few months. No idea why they would turn on me all of a sudden, but now I must resume my search for a decently supportive and attractive ballet flat for commuting in, money in the hole for these now useless shoes. I gave them two stars because they look totally fine, and I did get a couple of good months out of them.

Ordered these to accommodate my neuropathic feet need room in the toes. Ordered an XW but did not do it. Loved the shoe but had to send it back. Love Zappos - extremely fast shipping, great staff - but wish I could find a shoe that would accommodate my toes!

I tried so many stores on and off line. I wear an 11WW and bought the above shoes. They fit well could be a little wider but am finding them comfortable now. If I could get an 11WWW, that would be great, but I don't think you make that size. Otherwise a 12WW might be a possibility. They are well made and flexible.

A great sandal! Comfortable and stylish, just the right heel height for an old fogey like me. The arch support is also very handy to have since I always "slip" off my slides (I'm a klutz, okay?).

I would have loved these shoes but the instep was not very deep and they were tight on the top of my feet. Perhaps an elasticized top or deeper instep would be an improvement.

The padding is very soft, nice cushion. The fabric does provide a lot of stretch but I still felt secure walking in them. My only complaint is that there is a seam on the inside that runs across the side of my baby toe, and it starting digging by the end of the evening. I have a really hard time finding shoes that are wide enough, so I will be looking at this brand in the future.

I love these shoes. They are comfortable and make my size 12 feet look smaller. I have fallen arches and stand all day. When I wear these shoes, my feet are NOT tired at the end of the day. The only drawback is that the Velcro has been rough on the hems of my pants with lighter weight fabrics.

These shoes are so comfortable that I wear them in lieu of slippers. No breaking-in period needed; they're good to go, from the get-go. I would recommend these shoes to anyone who suffer from bunions and hammertoes.

Ditto what previous reviews said about a very plain, not very stylish appearance. It's not so bad, but there are other, cuter shoes out there. Also ditto about the soft leather. They are crazy comfy though, and offer really great inner arch support.

I always wear a size 8M in shoes. After buying the Aetrex Lori and thinking they are the most comfortable sandals I've ever worn, I decided to try the Aetrex Berries Bungee Oxford. I bought them for a trip to Italy that I will be taking. NO go; I will be returning them. They are quite narrow in the forefoot and rub my large toe. I might try the Wide width, because they are a very lightweight, supportive, comfortable shoe, and a slight bit on the rigid side. I just don't believe in "breaking in," shoes at all. They have to feel 100% great right out of the box.

For me, these are by far the most comfortable shoes on earth. My feet hurt really badly if I wear any other shoes. The Atrex Berries by Helen have been a life saver for me. I cannot say enough good things about them. I have not had a problem with the shoes falling apart like one of the other reviews said. I have been wearing them to work Monday through Friday since I got them a couple of months ago. I am hard on shoes. These are holding up great. I like the fact that you can order them in wide also.

I bought these thinking I might wear them for work 10-hour-on-my-feet shifts. They were too nice looking to wear to work. They are pretty comfortable, but about equal to Clarks and Soft Spots. I would recommend these to anyone. Zappos excellent, as always.

Great shoes. Comfy. Nicer than sneakers, but with all of the comfort of sneakers.

Love this comfy shoe! The stretch upper, fits great, doesn't cut into toes, great with my small bunion,perfect arch support and cupped heel for my flat feet with heel spurs! Normally wear a wide, but regular with was great due to the stretchy straps, perfect heel height too! Love this shoe! Too bad its only in black and taupe, I would buy every color!

The idea of this shoe is great, but the straps across the instep are made for a very narrow foot. My feet are on the narrow side and it was too tight for me. My mom wears a AAAA and it was holding her foot in. If you have narrow feet, this shoe is for you!

I really tried to make these shoes work but the toe box was too narrow and they don't come in wide. I went up half a size thinking that would make it better but my feet just moved around and the toe box still crunched my toes. I usually wear a M in most shoes but these just don't seem to work. Wish Aetrex made them in wide.

Whoa, these were a huge disappointment. This shoe is very lightweight and the sole is very supportive and comfortable. The fit was just a tad short in my usual size 6. I could've taken a 6.5 instead. As another reviewer mentioned, the leather is very soft and VERY thin, but only on the left shoe of the pair I received (the red). So the left shoe was wrinkled and creased at the toes (and you could see my toenails) and the right side was smooth (like two different styles). Also, I had read the review that said these were unattractive, but being older and not-so-chic I figured I'd like them regardless. The previous reviewer was spot-on and these look nothing like ballet flats; they're quite orthopedic looking (and I'm 50 and usually wear 'sensible shoes'). I am returning them.

I ordered my normal size 8B, but I could not begin to get my toes into that strap. These are cute shoes. I have another pair (last year's model) Sandalista with an adjustable strap. They are very comfortable.
