I am so disappointed that these are not going to work for me. They are cute and likely comfortable like my other Arche's, but that's all the good. The bad is that the sole is extremely narrow, yet the band on the front top is too wide. The elastic straps don't hold my feet back from going over the front edge of the shoe. Something is wrong because I even stand crooked in them. And... they have no arch support. Sorry, cannot recommend. However, I HIGHLY recommend Zappos for their excellent service and speedy shipping.

I took this shoe out of the box, put it on and said "aaaah". No other shoe feels like Arche right out of the box. I bought my first pair 15 years ago because I was walking around Boston and my feet hurt and passed the Arche store and went in. I bought two pairs, a sandal and a heel. I am usually very hard on shoes, but both pairs still look and feel fantastic. They are very pricey, but totally worth it.

Lovely shoe, but I had to return it. I wear a U.S. 9 1/2 or 10 and almost always a European 40. Arche is marking their Euro 40 a U.S. 9 and it felt true to a U.S. 9, which is too small for me. This shoe was very small in a Euro 40, and very narrow as well. I am going to order up a size, because it is a very attractive shoe.

I think that I could stand or walk all day in these! I don't wear heels very often because they usually hurt the ball of my foot, but these are very cushy, while still looking sophisticated.. And the soft leather will not cause blisters. Expensive, but worth it to have feet that don't hurt.

I already had these in the "fauve" (camel) color, and decided to order them in black as well (even though I already have the Arche Exor in black). Unfortunately, the pair I received was a little off. The strap that fastens with velcro -- which is already on the short side -- was especially short, and the edge of the front section rubbed in a way that I just know would give me blisters. The first pair I bought has neither of these problems. I'm sending these back and re-ordering, in the hope that a second pair will fit better.

The best feature is the thicker sole that these ballet flats provide. They seem to be one of the few ballet flats that actually provides some shock absorption. Unfortunately these do not come in half sizes, and there wasn't a size available that would fit my foot properly. Also, the back of the shoe comes way up on the back of the heel, and it wasn't comfortable for me.

As always, Arche is on the pricey side - but well worth it. These fit like slippers straight away, but look stylish and not run-of-the-mill. Would love a version with a slightly higher heel, too.

I loved this shoe but it did not feel like other size 39 Arches I have gotten in the past. It was too tight, sad to say. I loved the color which was to be black but in fact is a beautiful midnight blue. Sorry to return them and sorry Zappos did not have size 40 which I found elsewhere and they feel as all my Arches feel - delightful on my feet. And, the black turned out to be a true black and would have liked the midnight blue. oh well. Thanks Zappos for making shoe shopping a good experience.

It is very comfortable to wear this pair of shoes. It's stylish too. However, I noticed I had tripped a few times since I got my pair last week. Perhaps the reason is the thick sole. Just need to be careful about it. I had same issue with Arche Malyak. Thought to put my concerns in the review to see if anyone else had the same problem.

What to do? I adore Arche shoes, when they are good they are the best. These are awesome in many ways - silky soft bottoms, beautiful design, no-rub leather...but...not only are the elastic bands too flimsy to hold up the heavier shoe, when you wear them they turn your foot black! The dye rubs off, very unattractive when you are out for the day and see your toes black. Haven't decided yet whether I can keep them. Too bad!

This shoe by Arche is quite comfortable with soft nubuck upper and cushy rubber sole. The cut looks strange from above--until you put it on and realize how flattering it is! I have a long, narrow foot, and these shoes fit very well and are nice-looking on. They are expensive but, if they hold up well, worth the price.

Wow. Super cool and so comfortable right out of the box. I don't normally do reviews but I am so impressed with the style and comfort. Worth every penny. Invest in good shoes and you cannot go wrong. Thank you Zappos, you treat me so well with your awesome customer service. This is my second pair of Arche's and I am so happy.

This is an amazing shoe! I have very thin feet and it fits perfectly. It is also very comfortable. I own 9 pairs of this shoe in an array of colors.

The strap hits too high on the ankle. I hope they can get the design alterations modified. It is a beautiful shoe. Sorry I have to return it.

I ordered these shoes because I loved the dark navy and the reviewer raved about the comfort of the shoe. I only have one other pair of Arche that I now wear, having tried several different styles over the years. I am usually between an 8.5 and a 9 or 39 or 40 in European size. I followed the advice of the reviewer and ordered the 40 although my other Arche is a 39 (it is an open toe style). These new Arche were comfortable right out of the box. I wore them for an entire day and had no issues at all. There is no arch support but the shoes are completely flexible and feel part of your feet. They feel like slippers but are much nicer looking, of course. I can't wear shoes with a stiff sole so I have been hoping that I could find a pair of Arche that would work well. These fill the bill and I highly recommend them. Yes, they are expensive so I understand someone's hesitation to buy them. But they are worth it for the comfort and they are very attractive too.

This shoe is amazingly soft! It is worth your investment. Unfortunately I was looking something for my arthritic feet. Not enough cushion at the front. I will have to send it back and it makes me feel really sad. Anyway I feel lucky that Zappos is getting this European brand available to us. Never fail with Zappos.com. I would like to see more Arche models in all sizes. I have recommended this shoe to everybody I know but not all sizes are available. Please please please get more sizes available. ;)

Oh my goodness, I was hoping these wouldn't be quite so perfect because they are really expensive, at least to me. The leather is soft, the soles are cushy, the elastic wraps perfectly around my skinny ankles, and the front part is just right for my narrow feet. They are elegant, but casual at the same time, shiny but not too much. This is a great summer splurge.

Fabulously comfortable shoe! Size ran small so I had to order up a full size, which actually only ran about a 1/2 size larger, but fit perfectly. Time will tell if the shoe's wear & tear is worth the price!

Nice shoe but expensive for what it is. My foot was slightly too narrow and elasticized straps didn't hold my foot in, but if my foot was slightly wider would have been super comfortable.

I just got my Arches. Love them. Put them on right away out of the box the most comfortable shoe I ever worn, stylish. Love them. I definitely would buy a second pair

I have had Arche shoes that I loved so much that I've worn them till they practically fell apart but not so much these. While they looked cute in the photo, they sort of look like grandmotherly bedroom slippers, at least in black. What I really dislike about them is that the dye comes off and your feet and toenails look filthy, even after numerous wearings. The first time I wore them, I was going to yoga and it was so embarrassing to be in bare feet, especially with the snarky comment that 'that's what happens with cheap shoes' (namaste, to you, too). Since I live in Asia and any time you go to anyone's house you have to take off your shoes, I can only wear them when I know I won't have to do that, so they tend to sit gathering dust and they are too expensive for that.
