I had bunion surgery four months ago and am having a difficult time finding any type of heel that is comfortable. This shoe runs a little large so it is perfect for my left foot. I will probably have to get an insert for the right one, but that is ok. The shoe also looks very graceful on!

These boots are great - super comfortable! The boots go well with formal work dresses. Highly recommend it!

I have finally found a shoe that feels wonderful from the get go! I usually get size 71/2-8. Size 8 fit perfectly with and without my orthotics. They are light weight and super comfortable. I like the way the black suede matches the black wedge heel which is the perfect height. They are very slim looking with plenty of room in the toe box. I cannot believe I found the perfect shoe!!! I have RA and am very picky!

The opening was too large that I could slip on the boots without using the zipper. They did not feel like theywould stay put because of this problem. There is not much arch support, but you can put in some orthotics (you cannot remove the insole, though). I do like the style and suede, though. I returned them and bought Munro American Robyn instead. Same design but without the flaws.

I actually purchased these boots from a store here in Chicago about 3 (possibly 4) years ago. Guess what? They have been the most comfortable, warm, waterproof, and amazing boots I've ever had. And the price might be high, but they lasted over 3 years!! Only now is the gore-tex worn down and they are no longer waterproof. But my oh my these boots got me through blizzards, -35F days waiting at the CTA for the bus or train, and walking miles through the city! Super comfortable- and I had bunion surgery and have poor arches. I also thought they were sleek and cute enough to stay on all day with jeans, leggings, or tights/skirt. I'm considering buying them again as I hunt for new winter boots!

Holy moly! I have never worn a shoe quite this comfortable. I read the reviews and decided to give this shoe a try and I was not disappointed. It truly feels like you're wearing a slipper in terms of comfort. There is no "break in" time required. They are stylish and trendy looking and perfect with jeans or pants.

I ordered a UK size 7.5 (US size 10), the box said Size 8, the shoes themselves were stamped a Size 5. They were very small (my guess is that they were a true US 5) so I could not try them on. They look lovely - perhaps because they are so small!? I will reorder.

These are great shoes on all fronts - style, comfort and fit. The color is also great - beautiful chocolate brown.

Loved this shoe for comfort and classic style. Had to special order one size lower than normal to get them small enough to fit. Bought grey and black.

These are great shoes but I had to return them because overall they were too large, yet not long enough. I usually wear a size 10½ which is their UK size 8. If I went up to the UK size 8½ the shoes would fall off. I loved the padding and feel of the shoes, but sadly they were too big yet not long enough.

I love these shoes! They look great and feel wonderful on my feet. I particularly like the pillow-like insoles. They have a metallic finish on the non-patent part that does not show up in the photo. They run a little narrow.

Love this show for business, casual and for art openings,etc where I do a lot of walking plus stairs, into and out of taxis. The shoe is super comfortable and attractive, the mix of learner both reptile print and sold smooth leather gives it a classy look. Wish there were boots with similar style.

I don't have a review but I have a question? How tall is the boot? Does it go just below the knee or mid calf? Thanks

I normally wear a 9 1/2 or 10 in flats. I ordered the 7 1/2 and they are perfect! They are a little big but I always put a breathable innersole or orthotic in my shoes so they are just right for me. They are so classy and pretty on my HUGE feet that I feel like a princess! My feet look narrow and smaller. I haven't worn them yet, but I expect them to be very comfortable.

These are exactly what I was looking for! When my old pair of black sling-back shoes wore out, I was afraid that I would not be able to find any to replace them, but these are just right! They are comfortable and stylish. The rather low cut in the front is perfect for people with a high instep and the sling backs allow me to adjust for the fact that one foot is a little bigger than the other. They are a little expensive but worth it because they are well made and will last a long time.

Pros: Very comfortable shoe, the patent leather is very nice quality, soft, feels like calfskin leather. Tailored to my foot and gave this a feminine twist to the "masculine" shoe. I tried the Black. Cons: It didn't have much arch support for me (who has fallen arches and plantar fasciitis) but I'm sure if you don't have issues with your arches they will work well. Ara makes good quality shoes, mostly in suede, and usually very comfortable. I was going to swap out the laces but due to the arch support not 100% there for me, I had to let them go, but they are a good quality shoe.

My poor 18 year old daughter with an 8½ wide feet lucked out with these! Great quality. She put them on and said they were comfortable from the get go. She wore them all day to school and still really liked them. I think she would have liked a little more style in them but overall they are good. Thank you, Zappos!

These boots run true to size and are comfortable. I usually wear Sam Edelman boots but I love the patent leather trim on these.

These are beautiful shoe. However, I must return them as they run at least a half size too small. I take a 5½ and the equivalent is so small my foot will not get into it.

I have a hard time buying nice boots in in a wide size. I usually end up having to size up to accommodate my orthotic. These boots are great as they are wide and stretch a little with wear. I was able to buy them in my true size and still use my orthotic. And they are very cute! This is a miraculous feat given my wide flat feet, and bunions. To find a shoe that actually fit that wasn't hideous is great.

More impressive online. Ordered my normal size and width but too wide and too long. Have slingbacks from this maker that fit true to size. Back to Zappos.
