I have three other pairs of Aravon shoes that I love--8B is a perfect fit. But 8B in these (Francesca) are too small, even without socks. Also, they seem to force my foot to roll to the inside.

A great shoe for my foot! I have been looking for a replacement low black heel or flat for awhile. This shoe has arch support, comfort in the edge around the heel and toe area, padding in the sole and no toe cleavage or heel slippage. I like shoes to have a lot of arch support, and while this shoe is good, for me, an excellent arch support would have more height. But, I can still walk all day in these shoes and not have sore feet! Unfortunately, I own many pairs of shoes that do not make my feet as happy as they are in these shoes.

I wanted lace shoes (to give some additional arch support) and that weren't sneakers (so I could wear to work) and these were even better than I hoped! I have no foot pain when I wear them, even for long days. And, what's even better, no lower back pain! I do wear them with orthotics, but these shoes are the best medicine I could ask for and don't look too bad, either! I'm buying a second pair so I have one I can get dirty and one for the office. I'm looking at other Aravon shoes with hopes they'll be as well made.

This shoe had real possibilities--narrow width, elastic throat, rounded toe, reasonably attractive style. But I couldn't keep it on my foot. The elastic throat was too loose! Also, the shoe weighs a lot, so wearing it was like being saddled with ankle weights. The removable orthotic was not as supportive or comfortable as that in an athletic shoe that weighed much less. Sorry, Zappos. I have to return yet another pair of shoes. Thanks for the great customer service.

NOT orthotic compatible! I assumed that since the insert is removable these would work for my orthotics, but no, the insert it comes with is highly cushioned in the heel, and thinner in the forefoot, so there's way too much depth when you remove the insert, and the depth from heel to toe is off and weird. I also need to have a moderate heel on my shoes, and the "heel" on these is all in the insert, so when you remove the insert it comes with, it drops your heel way down. So it made my heel sit too low. Plus they are quite unattractive. Perhaps they would be cuter in the black--the stone color makes it look like a dumpy "old-lady shoe." I don't know what happened with Aravon; they used to have so much more to choose from and much cuter styles than they have now.

I am ecstatic! I never thought I'd say that about a pair of shoes, but finding a pair of closed- toed shoes has been a challenge for me for years because of bunions on both feet and hammertoes on my right foot. These shoes have answered my silent prayers! They are very comfortable and have roomy toes without looking boxy or frumpy; in fact, I think they are quite stylish. I've been wearing them comfortably for four hours since they came today. Amazing! Yes, they are pricey, but,hey, I will wear them to death! I wear a 7.5 and these fit my feet perfectly. Did I say I was ecstatic?

These shoes were somewhat clunky compared to the picture but I've worn other clunky shoes so didn't rule these out before I tried them. I must say that they were very comfortable right out of the box! I wear a narrow and these felt a little sloppy in the toe box, but the heel fit fine and the cushiony feel of the insole was great. Unfortunately, the strap has no give and was digging into my ankle after only a few minutes wear. Maybe my ankles have gotten big because a lot of the hook part of the Velcro was left exposed. In general, I'm not a fan of Velcro (hook and loop) closure on dress or casual shoes -- I hate it when it catches the inside of pants or hem threads. I understand that its intended to allow for a more custom fit, but give me a buckle and a little elastic and I can certainly find a "custom" ankle fit. I haven't decided yet to send these back, but if I do it will be because of the ankle strap.

I wear a size 13 and these shoes look great! They were comfortable the first time I wore them and required virtually no breaking in. These shoes will be my new go to when I need comfortable but fashionable shoes. The quality is what you would expect for the price.

Shoe is a whole size larger and the heel slips as you walk. I have had to trade for 2 sizes now. Hopefully going down another 1/2 size will do the trick. They seem comfortable for the little that I've worn them around the house.

These are probably the ugliest shoes that I have ever seen, if they did not have the additional stitching on the top, you would think that they were men's. When you have big feet, you would still like to look like a woman, moral to the story, these are being returned...

These are great looking shoes but the soles are so slick that I almost slipped and fell just trying them on! That is too bad because I really liked the way they look but I will return them.

VERY comfy. Looks matronly, though. I really really really need a comfy shoe - but can't decide whether to keep these or not. Kinda' clompy.

These are very comfortable. They are pretty attractive, but a little wider than I thought they'd be.

A very comfortable and stylish shoe. I can stay in it all day and not feel tired. I was skeptical about the Velcro but it worked well. Definitely recommend.

I purchased these shoes for my elderly mother because they are easy to slip on and off. It's a nice, shiny shoe that comes in a wide size. I love Zappos because the delivery is super fast and returns are easy! It's a convenient way to shop when you are unable to take a parent back and forth to the mall.

I am a Birkenstock wearer for decades now and I was always having a hard time finding comfortable "closed shoes." The Aravon Faith shoes I bought from Zappos are fantastic. I highly recommend the Aravon Faith shoes for people who like softness and comfort in a shoe and who are not really "closed shoe" wearers. Besides, these shoes look and feel elegant. All I can say: "Buy with confidence; you will not be disappointed!"

I love these shoes and I love Zappos! The shoes are very true to size. I wear a 12 so it's hard to find gorgeous shoes in my size. But not at Zappos! They have me covered. The shoes are lovely with slacks, very comfortable, could be worn also with skirts/dresses and are very stylish. The leather is soft and easy care. I would recommend these shoes and if they come in different colors, I'm going to order them. :)

The boots are very comfortable. I'm a teacher and on my feet all day. I've worn them twice, no blisters at the end of the day.

I love this shoe. Very stylish and the heel is just high enough. I have problem feet and like to wear dresses so this was a perfect match for me. I did think it ran a little big and had to return for a half size smaller.

These shoes are not the prettiest, but they are wonderful walking shoes. I bought them to wear to NYC for business, and they were wonderful. The fit is good and they kept my feet from hurting while walking 5 miles each day which was awesome. They fit a bit snug, but otherwise true to size.
