It's a very well made shoe. I wanted a decent looking shoe with very good arch support. In my size (13) this is hard to find. Being black leather, they look nice enough to wear for work but still casual for play clothes. This shoe doesn't have as much arch support as I was hoping for, but better than nothing. The nice thing is the insole can be removed if you have your own orthotics that you want to use. All three straps have velcro so they can be adjusted for differences in your feet.

Really disappointed in this shoe. The seam on the top strap (over the toe) was badly sewn with sharp edges. The bottom of the foot deck was not connected to the sole of the shoe. Horrible quality for $the price. I cannot recommend. Not Zappos' fault - this is all on Aravon.

I purchased a pair of these sandals in June from a local store. They are the most comfortable sandals ever. Wanted to purchase another pair and the store did not have them, so they recommended I go online. I found Zappos and they had my sandal, at a lower price. I ordered them immediately and now have a second pair for next summer. I would live in these sandals if it were not for the winter months with snow.

My first Katys were WW. Now I have a pair of 8W. Instep straps are gigantic. A broad forefoot doesn't mean that we have elephant ankles. That said, my blue suede 8W Katy sandals are my favorite sandals. I must wear orthotics. As long as I can add my orthotics I will have the support I need. I need matte silver. I have white hair so I wear silver all the time. These sandals would be more worth the price if the strap problem was solved. I have read the same complaint on this sandal from other people.

I'd also recommend: Drew

The product was just as I expected and fit well. I packed them for vacation. When wearing the I found a manufacturing flaw on the left foot on the seam near the big toe. Worried that this rip will expand. Not acceptable for a shoe at this price.

I am facing foot surgery to correct a condition where my arch has totally collapsed. I need an orthotic to walk which has meant only enclosed shoes which were hot and ugly! Thanks to this sandal I can now have cool feet because I was able to remove the footbed and insert my own orthotic. By the way the sandal was deliciously comfortable out of the box and my feet would have loved it if I hadn't been so limited because of my bum foot. I also loved that the sandal is so adjustable with three adjustable straps. Thank you Aravon!
