At 57 with rheumatoid arthritis, plantar fasciitis, spurs and blah, blah, blah, it finally dawned on me that high-heeled, pointed toe boots were out and that I presented a danger to the public in anything other than a shoe with training wheels even while using my dashing leopard cane. However, I REFUSED to wear my Grandma's deep toe-box, hideously clunky shoe. Heck, she refused to wear them over 30 yrs ago and would hide them from us. Smart lady. I knew if I had any chance at luck it would be Zappo's. Did I fail to mention I also have a high instep and wide foot? Well, I came across the Aravon Mona and figured it would look ok with tights for skirts and fun socks with jeans. Upon a little more research, I discovered the shoe was made specifically for some of my issues. On a fixed income, they certainly dented ny budget, but with Zappos policy thought I'd give it a try. I ordered my normal 8-1/2 ww and two days later was in nirvana. I ended up replacing 1/2 size up just in case I wanted to wear really thick socks but think I probably would have been fine staying with the originals. I think I've forgotten what it felt like to wear shoes this well made. The toe box is perfect, no pinching but not so much room my foot is swimming. The included support is heavenly. It really helps align both feet properly which in turn aligns knees, hips, back etc. It hits the arch perfectly. The heel to platform ratio is just right for keeping my heel the little bit elevated that is needed. I walked 4 hours in the mall yesterday and can't remember the last time I did that with anything resembling comfort. I'm actually looking forward to holiday shopping this year. And, yes, it looked smashing with my leopard cane. I actually am making a wish list for Aravon shoes, boots and sandals. Santa, you reading this?

I'd also recommend: Soft spots, Klogs (though heavy, and Dansko if u can find wide enough

I LOVE these! They are a little more taupe than brown, but that's ok by me. My orthodics slide right in (thank god) and I have been looking for a shoe I could wear with a dress with the orthodics. This has been a battle, everything is so big and clunky. These are great, feminine, and the velcro on the side has just enough give to make up for the two different sized orthodics I have (I hate my feet, I hate my feet). Anyway...I slid these on upon arrival at work, and wore them the rest of the day. Super comfy, great style, turned around and bought them in black the next day, with the same result. No need to break them in, was just put on and go! :)

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! I have been wearing Aravon Mayas for years with great comfort and modest style. I decided to try the Mona style and it seems a bit more dressy and more modern than the traditional Mary Jane look of my other shoe. The local shoe repair shop owner told me that the Aravon shoes are the best looking and healthiest to wear of any all around shoes she has ever seen. This black Mona has a nice textural embellishment that makes them interesting. I thought the 10 M felt a bit stiff almost tight across my arthritic metatarsals, so tried the 10W which were longer in the foot and the straps. They were way too big and my foot slopped around in them. I just wore the 10M around my house a couple days with thicker socks and now when I wear them out to a dressy event at night, they feel great for a very long time. I also have orthopedic problems with my feet, hips and spine. I can take out the footbeds on these and put my orthotics in. They are just great shoes!

I'd also recommend: Clarks, Naot

I have bad feet, lost the fat on the ball of the foot. This brand and these shoes are fantastic. I can stand at work, wearing heels, all day long.
