I have found these to be immediately comfortable, very versatile, and true to size. The UK size 8 was listed as 10.5 US, and that's what it turned out to be. I have wide feet, so that half-size above 10 and the forgiving elastic straps work for me. They look very nice and feel great.

I think this was the third time I bought these shoes. Perfect fit, look great, wear them all the time. Just a terrific buy!

These shoes are cute and pretty comfortable but just didn't work for me. The leather was soft but a tad too pleather-like for the price. I have narrow-ish feet (although I usually wear M, not N width shoes) and my foot felt a bit loose. The footbed was quite comfortable too. As I was looking for an exceptionally comfortable shoe, these didn't make the cut. I would recommend them as a cute shoe for regular wear, but not if you need something for major city walking.

So not only did it take several day to get this shoe.The size had to be missed marked. No way was this 8 1/2. More like a size 10. Not sure what happened here.

I absolutely love these shoes! Comfortable and cute! Receive compliments every time I wear them. Wish they came in more than 2 colors.

REALLY cute. A little long and wide, but I got some heel inserts because I thought the next size smaller would be too small. Also, with thin socks they fit snugly enough.

I chose this shoe because I liked the adjustable straps at both the ankle and toe. My left foot is a bit smaller then my right. Very comfortable and love the silver button trim. The only thing I would change is having it in smooth leather not nubuck. Nubuck is not my favorite because it scuffs to easily.

I really wanted for this boot to work for me. Although the length felt true to size I found the toe box area to be more narrow than most shoes in a medium width and sadly had to return them. I would have re-ordered in a wide width had it been available. I purchased the micro-suede boot and thought it looked quite sharp. The fabric does stretch as you zip them so wearing them over leggings or skinny jeans is doable.

Beautiful shoes, but, they made a loud squeaking noise when I walked on the floor indoors. Really annoying. Otherwise, very comfortable and pretty.

These are nice shoes but they did not fit. The length was fine, but they were too big in the width which surprised me since I do not have narrow feet.

Comfortable right out of the box. Love the block heel that is not too high. The only issue I have had is that the lining of the shoe came out the first time I wore them which I am not happy about for this price of shoe it should not happen so I am wondering how long they will hold up.

Definitely a roomy fit - I always go between 6½ and 7 but the 6½ is perfect. They were comfortable the second I put them on. I love them!

This is my second pair of these shoes. They are marvelously comfortable and aregood walking shoes. Mu earlier pair has gone hundreds of miles and have heldbip well. These are on the way to soing so also. They run true to size and have some support. Not a lot but adequate.

Thank you, Zappos, for sending the Ara Bella in time for an out of town function. I love the fit and they were comfortable immediately and I wore them the entire day. I will be looking at Ara again!

The outside part of the shoe near the ankle is cut high, and rubs on my foot. Returning a really cute shoe, that I know I would find irritating to wear for a long period of time.

Banished old lady shoes that carried orthotics. Ordered these. Low profile, snazzy looking and I walked, FAST, all over Dublin. Zappos did it again!

Very soft and well made. I usually wear an 8.5, sometimes a 9, but as the 8.5 was unavailable I thought I'd try the 9. It was way too big so I will now order an 8 if it's available. Would love to find my size in this shoe as it is just what I'm looking for.

I've had 3 foot operations so I need comfortable shoes. These fit the bill! For a ballet style shoe, these were the best, and I've tried many.

These were stylish comfortable chunky heeled pumps that were very comfortable, but just a little too high for me working as a flight attendant. Very comfortable, just not for me and long periods on my feet.

I'm so happy to have found this shoe again. It is my second pair and I wear them all day long. They are well made and very comfy on my feet. Even in hot weather like Calif. they feel so great. I just love them. H. M.
