Comfortable boots finally - I had bunion surgery 1-1/2 years ago and have been unable to find a comfortable and warm boot as well as fashionable. Well, the hunt stops here. These are very bunion friendly. I have high arches, they don't have much for arch support, but are tolerable.

I am disappointed with this boot. I thought these would be my "go to" boot for fall/winter. The other reviewers all seemed to say comfortable/warm. I am always cold, so I need warm, even in the fall. They are warm enough for fall if I wear a thick enough sock or put in an Ugg footbed...haven't tried them in winter yet, but I doubt I'll wear them much. As far as comfort, they are horrible. I have bunions and they do not bother them...that's wear the comfort stops. There is no padding at all in the footbed and no arch support at all. The ball of my foot and my heel touch the footbed and all the rest of my foot does not. I've never had this problem with shoes (and I have many!). I spend a lot a time trying to figure out what sock/cushion/arch support combination to wear (depending on the whether and how long I'll be on my feet)...way too much thought has to go into making them comfortable each time I wear them. They are cute and stylish and that's the only reason I kept them, but I do regret this purchase.

Comfortable, Practical - I am a big fan of ARA boots, mostly because they are treated with Gore-Tex, always look fashionable and are hard "to kill". I agonized over getting these as they are "practical", something that my closet often lacks. I liked them because they are not as clunky as my LL Bean hiking boots or as fragile as my Uggs yet they are very light weight and will work with pants or even skirts on a snowy day. While I could have sized down I decided to stay with my normal size in ARA to be able to fit a wool sock in them (another practical thing I don't often do). They were a good choice. By the way, they say wide width. They are not. They are normal width.

I'd also recommend: Any Ara boots, Ugg, Luchesse, Donald J. Pliner, Cole Haan

Adorable warm boot - I have tried dozens of winter boots, and this one is both attractive AND warm. I haven't tried it in water yet, so I can't attest to the waterproof claim, but it is GORE-TEX, so that's a good thing. This one looks good with both skirts and pants. Very cute boot. I would say true to size. Plus, Zappos is the BEST!

I just love this winter boot! I have lived in Texas for many years now and haven't really needed a good winter boot. But I ordered the ara Magaly Gore-Tex boot to wear while visiting my son in Boulder, Colorado this past winter. They had a heck of a lot of snow this past year, so I wanted a pair of good, comfortable winter boots that would allow me the freedom to walk from place to place, as I usually do in Boulder, despite any amount of winter weather. These boots were perfect! In fact, I arrived in Boulder just days after this order arrived in the mail, and the very afternoon I arrived, Boulder encountered a huge snow storm! It snowed and snowed for a full day and a half. We ended up with about 13" on the ground! It stuck around for the duration of my 4 day visit. Thanks to my wonderfully warm, cozy, and supremely comfortable ara Magaly boots, I continued to walk to the coffee shop each morning, to my son's campus activities, to everything I usually walk to in Boulder -- including a few outdoor hikes! -- despite a tremendous amount of snow in a very short time. It turns out, Boulder got snow in March, April, and May during every one of my remaining visits this year! Who would have thought? But I was prepared with these smart, new boots. I was so proud of them, too! They're so cute! I wore them with my yoga pants, my jeans, and my slacks. They looked good with everything! One of the many things I like about them is the fact that they are a narrow-looking, somewhat feminine-looking boot. I have large feet, but they looked considerably smaller in this attractive boot. Which is saying a heck of a lot for a warm, cozy, and waterproof winter boot! Most winter boots are huge. I only buy comfortable shoes. It is my number one qualifier for a shoe. If it's not extremely comfortable, I send it back. These boots are exceptionally comfortable! I walked miles per day from the first time I put them on in Boulder, and I never had sore feet, sore legs, or anything like a blister. They were comfy from moment one! As I said, I walked in 12-13" deep snow each day, and other than the very small amount of snow that nestled around the "furry" top of the boot as I walked (the snow was deeper than the boot was tall), my feet and legs stayed completely dry! They also, miraculously, remained sweat-free, even after wearing them all day long! That is not often the case with waterproof shoes, which are often not very breathable. I noticed that I can wear these with or without socks. I wore them with Smartwool socks most of the time. No sweat at all! Occasionally, I slipped my bare feet into them prior to going out. Never did I have a problem with sweat or cold or damp! They're fantastically practical and good. I measure at a size 11, and most shoes fit me in size 11. I occasionally wear a 12 in a running shoe or hiking shoe. And I very occasionally wear a 10 in a sandal. These are Magaly Gore-Tex boots fit me perfectly in a size 11, which leads me to believe they are true to size. The toe bed is kind of square and quite roomy. I had no pinched toes at all. The heels never slipped. I had no "hotspots," nor even the slightest hint at a blister. I seriously love these boots and look forward to my next winter weather event so I can wear them again!

I'd also recommend: Ahnu, Naot, Clarks, Salomon, Teva, Merrell
