Needed a shoe I could wear with either dresses or pantsuits. I've got bad bunions on both feet but a narrow heel. Besides that, I've forgotten how to walk in heels! These shoes are perfect: rounded toe with a high toebox and a strap so that the heel doesn't slip off. The leather's excellent. The heel's high enough to be dressy but low and wide enough to give stability. Normally wear a 9 WW but the 9W was fine. Would definitely recommend!

When I originally purchased these I gave a rave review. Over time wearing them I began to have excruciating metatarsal pain wherein it was painful to put any weight on my left foot as it felt like my bone was actually pressing on floor. I finally decided to stop wearing Maya as my theory was, they were so large, my foot , the front part especially, was spreading out way too much combined with the lack of arch and slight heel was causing my foot to slide forward, exacerbating the pressure on bottom/front of foot. I did try on the smaller size in the hopes that foot would not slide/spread so much. I do like the look after all of the Maya (I might have liked to try same size in narrow, but I believe Maya didn't come in narrow). Bottom line is I wish to revise my previous 5 star rating to a one. Since eliminating Maya from my wardrobe, my left foot metatarsal pain has all but disappeared. I have even been able to wear a small heel (an old pair of Ara brand - the Jenny...wish it came in plain black or navy these days so I could get a fresh pair). On another note, it seems that Aravon has sadly stopped making the Tammi, which was the perfect pair of maryjane with a low wedge heel. I am trying my hardest to take care of my one and only pair of Tammi's...they are light, padded around ankle and toe box, absolutely no pain whatsoever, with decent arch support and no buckle. The strap has tiny bit of elastic so the shoe stays on but is never tight and is great at airport security (am flight attendant) slips on and off, no need to mess with buckle. I went a half size up but in narrow 11N to avoid any problems as I did with Maya...if you can find a pair left on amazon, I strongly encourage you to do so. I would be buying a few pairs right now if I could find them in my size in black. Will be writing Aravon to complain. Anyway, hope this helps.

Love these shoes but the heel is too big. I'm sorry to say that they are have to go back. I may try another pair if aravons in a different style, in case it's unique to this particular style. LOVE LOVE LOVE Zappos! Best customer service ever.

I'd also recommend: Any brand that offers style in a wide width. Their so hard to find. Thanks for,

I was looking for a pump with a wide toe box and removable insole due to wearing of orthotics and having bunion These pumps fit the bill beautifully. However I have to return them because my particular orthotic does shoe fit properly into the shoe! Better luck next time.

Dealing with chronic PF I was desperate for a shoe I could be comfy in for occasional business meetings and conference. I was thrilled with the comfort !! Style is very matronly and frankly dorky but ah the comfort made me ignore it. Since I only wore them about 20 times I was shocked when the upper inside part of the heel that doesn't contact the ground completely disintegrated. I called customer service at new Balance that owns Aravon and was told too bad so sad see ya. I asked a cobbler to do anything to bothe shoes so I could still use them since they are still barely used. He said they are un fixable. So after $149 I have a pair of very gently worn worthless shoes. #NewBalance #Aravon shame on you

I'd also recommend: Allegra Cobb Hill

I have wide feet, bunions, and high insteps, but normal-width heels. It is a real challenge to find shoes that actually fit and feel good and don't look like something prescribed by a physician for a medical condition. After several buy-and-return-because-they-didn't-work experiences, I tried the Aravon Maya and finally found success! These shoes are not ready for the runway or the Academy Awards, but they are about the best looking dress shoes I have found that actually fit completely well and don't hurt my feet at all. I have tried them with and without socks, equally successfully. They are awfully expensive, but for me, worth it.

I'd also recommend: Alegria, Sanita, Dansko
