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.

I have had these shoes for about 3 years. I am clearly a minority opinion, but I found these shoes disappointing. They have zero support. The band on top digs into the top of my foot, they come up too high and they are moderately uncomfortable after a fairly short time. I bought them to do extensive city walking on a trip to Europe, but cannot recommend. On the plus side, they are cool and lightweight. But for the high price I expected more. My cheaper Kaydee Crocs are much more comfortable.

I love these sandals! They are very comfortable & with the small platform & heel they look a little dressy. They will be my "go to" shoe for summer.

Love this shoe! I have three pairs. Dressier than most Arche and yet good with casual clothes too. Runs a little small. Color may be a little off. The red is not quite as red as the illustration. My Zappos black shoes are really navy blue but the same style from Nordstrom is a true black.

This seems like a pretty good shoe, but I do not think it is as great as others, especially for the price. I thought the sole and cushioning was great, but there is no arch support. The heel has elastic which is curved in, causing it to dig into my heel. I can't understand why shoes are designed like that. The also squeaked when I walked. Those issues may have gotten better with time but for the price I wasn't going to take that chance.

Oooh, this shoe is perfect. Comfort out of the box, true to size. The color is a soft slightly metallic gray leather with black accents, but it would go with anything. It looks very modern, not dowdy or clunky, and the vertical black zipper makes your foot look slim. They fit perfectly and are snug enough to give support but not pinch. You could seriously wear them just about anywhere except black tie. I do not want to take them off. And of course Zappos got them here in record time. You are the best.

Wearing these shoes was one of the most painful experiences ever. I have high arches and so my feet roll slightly toward the outside. These are designed for people who do the opposite because the soles of these shoes are thinner toward the outer edges. With each stride, my foot would roll out causing awful pain and instability (and risk of ankle injury). These are not designed for people who have high arches. So, if you tend to wear the outer edges of the soles of your shoes, be careful.

Love this shoe! I've been looking for a comfortable sandal to wear walking around Europe for an upcoming trip. This shoe is incredibly comfortable right out of the box which is a rare thing for me to say about sandals. The color, Zinc, is versatile and the style, although casual, will work for some dinners out as well. The wedge sole is flexible and doesn't feel terribly clunky. I'm typically a size 9 with a slightly wide foot. The size 40 fit well. I also have a high instep and the top part of the shoe is comfortable.

I wear a size 8.5. Went up a half size as recommended. Love these shoes. Yes they are pricy but well worth the comfort. Grigio is taupe color which I love.
