Beautiful shoe and well-made. But I am returning it because the left shoe felt a half-size larger. I love Aravon shoes and wished that this pair had fit better.

I have had hammertoe and other foot surgeries so comfort is my number one priority in purchasing shoes. I have Aravon walking oxfords that fit well and are extremely comfortable. For that reason I expected that these shoes would fit my narrow feet. I ordered my normal size, 6N, and was very disappointed in the overall fit. These shoes run extremely wide. The heel is very wide and gaps. The T-strap did not lay flat. Maura are very poor fitting shoes for narrow feet. On the positive side for those with wider feet seeking a comfortable walking shoe, the padded insole is comfortable. I also liked the looks of the slightly higher heel to wear with jeans and slacks. I will be returning Aravon Maura.

Adorable! I have wide feet and plantar fasciitis and I'm on my feet most of the day. Shoe shopping is like my part-time job. These were unexpectedly comfortable and cute. So much nicer in person than in the picture. I felt kind of 40s or a little bit pin-up while wearing them. I was worried they would look too orthopedic or geriatric. I like to look stylish at work but my shoes never live up to my outfits. I wore them with skinny khaki ankle pants and sheer ivory patterned knee highs. (Also a green cardigan, navy and white knit top, and a chunky gold link bracelet.) Next, I plan to pair them with my red skinny ankle pants. I'm feeling very 'Mid-century Nautical' this spring. I think they might also work with a skater skirt or a pencil skirt. By the way...the ability to adjust the ankle strap really accommodates the skinny heel that many women with a wide forefoot have trouble with.

These are very well made and quite cute. I felt they ran a touch big but they come with thin inserts that can be placed under the removable foot bed and the ankle strap is adjustable. That combination got me the fit I wanted. I don't know if I would have paid the full price for them but definitely a value at the sale price.

I wanted sturdy walking sandals with closed toes, but that looked more polished than most clunky sports sandals. I worried for a second at the other bad reviews - and then saw that they were all complaints about the wide width. Hooray! I wear a 10WW and have bunions, so the width is important. So I sprung for them, and they are going to be my go-to shoes for the summer. They are winners.

This shoe has a nice design that could work with pants and skirts. Unfortunately, I experienced the same problems that others have mentioned: It is impossible to find a size that fits. I tried 4 different sizes, some much smaller than I usually get, and it was still too large. It even seems like there was no difference in the length. Does the manufacturer use the same soles for different sizes? Too bad - I really wanted these to work!

Awesome! After searching for about 6 months I finally found a shoe that is comfy. I am on my feet from 9 to 17 hours a day working at a hotel plus I have bunions. These shoes are soft enough the bunions fit right in & my feet feel much better at the end of the day. I have read reviews about the shoe laces not staying tied: mine have stayed tied so far but I have a spare pair of flat laces on hand just in case. I bought the wide. The size I ordered was true to my foot measurement. Only wish there was more arch support.

I am a little in love with this sandal. I purchased them for a warm weather walking vacation. I have a wide toe box and a slimmer heel, and these fit perfectly. On a scale of 1 to 10, the cushioning is about a 5, and has seemed to hold up well so far. The leather is a bit stiff, but I think that may change with more wear.

These shoes are very comfy - the footbed is cushioned, and the rest of the shoe feels great. I did not need to break them in - they were comfortable from the moment I put them on. I ordered a 10W and they were plenty wide enough. I have a high instep, so they are a little hard to slide on, but once on, they feel great. I had tried on many other shoes for a trip to Europe, and these were the most expensive. They are worth the price. I was unsure about the styling, but my husband thought they looked great, so that helped make my decision.

I absolutely love these shoes! I am so glad that they came in wide. Thank you, Aravon! They are so comfortable for my temperamental feet.

I expected to really like this shoe because it's made by a division of New Balance, and New Balance shoes usually feel comfortable on my crummy feet. Also, this style seemed a little snazzier and a little less "girlie" and juvenile than a lot of other Mary Jane styles. So I was very bummed out when I tried on these shoes. They're somewhat stiff, and the wide is too narrow to accommodate my bunions. Walking in these shoes was fairly uncomfortable, so I'm sending them back. I'm grateful to Zappos to have such patience with my hard-to-fit feet; I appreciate your prompt shipments and lenient return policy!

Just before a trip to Europe, I was fitted by my local store with the Aravon Farren. It's the most comfortable shoe I've known. I've tried to find something else in this brand but so far no good. I bought the Whitney and it didn't fit at all. Now to the REVsync. It felt quite comfortable and a good fit, but after a half-day, it began to hurt the upper part of my foot. I tried loosening the strap, but it still rubbed my foot to the point I had to remove the shoe. I really don't know how to rate it because I think it might be a comfortable fit on someone else.

As soon as I took this shoe out of the box, I thought "This looks huge!" and it was! At least a whole size too big, and certainly wide enough for my very wide foot. I am tempted to see if it fits in a smaller size, because I did love the adjustable straps. They were big enough so that when I fixed them to fit, there was no Velcro showing - I hate it when the Velcro shows because I have to adjust it to fit my wide foot! It was a bit dowdy though, so am going to see if I can find something else instead.

Great shoes. Just bought my second pair because I wore the first so much I wore them out in three years.

This shoe is amazingly wide when it is supposed to be a narrow. Had to send it back!

The most comfortable sandal I have tried on in long time. Too bad I have to return due to ankle strap too large for me. Even with the velcro adjustment there was too much strap. If you're not too thin - this shoe is worth a try. Gave 5 stars because might be my foot and not the shoe as problem. I am 5'7", 130 lbs.

I just got these shoes and I love them. The rocker bed comes right into my arch and gives complete support. I think the rocking motion and the tight arch support will help my Plantar fasciitis. The shoe is narrow enough (medium width) so that my whole arch area feels great. I have been suffering from knee, back and foot problems - I really think these shoes are going to help - now I just need a pair to become available in black!

I have wide and picky feet, and I was (am) looking for a comfy, low-heel shoe to wear with skinny jeans. These are a bit clunky for that. But they are pretty comfortable. The toe box is high enough for me and the wides are wide enough for me. Woo hoo! The shoe is too deep in the heel, however, and I have to wear additional insoles so that the shoe doesn't hit my ankle bone. After some doctoring, the shoes are pretty good. They are a bit better looking on my feet than off my feet. To me, they are a bit expensive for all this compromise.

I like the funky style of this shoe, and the rounded toe box looked comfortable. But with 8.5W (I usually wear 8.5M, but have been trying W lately for my bunions), my toes hit the front of the shoe and I could tell it would be a problem. Also the back of the shoe gapped a good 1/2 inch.

I love these shoes. They have great support in the arches. I will buy this brand again. Very well made and not cheap feeling at all.
