Ara Bella (graphite/black) just arrived and they are "out-of-the-box" comfortable. The graphite is darker than depicted -- a great shade of metallic gray (a good thing!) and the leather is soft without appearing to be too delicate. The shoe clears the bunion area with no seams inside the shoe transitioning from patent toe cap to the body of the shoe to irritate those of us with "Princess-and-the-pea" feet. I had no problem with the sides hitting my ankle bone. I wear a 7 1/2 (Paul Green shoes) or an 8 and the 8 was perfect. The cut of the shoe is more of a skimmer than a ballet but for those of us that find a ballet irritating to delicate spots this is a delightful compromise. It's a wear-with-anything at any time kind of shoe and I look forward to more color options. The arch support seems to be good although not in the same category as Mephistos. Adorable shoe/great color combo/Zappos service equals a winning combination!

Fabulous quick delivery and customer service from Zappos. In the photo the body of this shoe looks creme and gray. In reality the body color is more bronze/black. Cute shoe on and off foot. The footbed is very comfortable. But it is cut high around the ankle and rubs uncomfortably on this bone. This isn't usually an issue for me, so I concluded this shoe does have have a "tall" height cut from heel to below the ankle bone. Unfortunately I'll be returning them.

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.

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.

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.
