I like the sandals but the front bands felt a little tight. One size larger might have worked better, but I decided that the style was rather child-like. I wanted more elegance, especially at this price. They were very light and comfortable, though. In the future, when I am more eager for ease and comfort, I may try the larger size.

They fit me well and were comfortable and secure, but I felt that the band was a tad too wide. Otherwise they were close to what I was looking for.

I tried many styles, from Arche and another brand, to find the most comfortable and stylish black sandals that are versatile. These are not exactly the kind of sandals I was looking for (I had lower heels in mind), but they are the best looking as well as comfortable. The only issue is the price, but I agree that it is better to have one expensive pair that works than to have two or three that only marginally work. I disagree with some reviewers that the similar style that Munro American makes is almost as good at a significantly lower price; theirs may look similar but the material feels a lot stiffer.

This is a great shoe, comfortable and works well with all my clothes. You would love Arche shoes! The leather is so soft; there is nothing to hurt your foot. A great shoe!

Absolutely stunning and as comfortable as my slippers. I debated whether to invest in these or buy the Munro Abby for half the amount. I made the right decision. The Exor is soft and just lovely. Very classy. These are all-season shoes and I think well worth the money. I do not have a lot of shoes and I am very careful about choosing just the right shoe. I buy about two pair of pumps annually. These are perfect. Not too dressy and fashion forward.

The stunning sapphire blue (Venezia)hue of Arche's Obela sandal is breathtaking! I usually take size 8, but had to exchange for size 7 because the sandal is so long in front. Comfortable lift in heel, attractive style. The practical hook and loop closure is secure yet enables me to get in and out of the sandal easily. I would have appreciated more cushion in the sole, but otherwise this sandal is perfect. I purchased two pairs!

Absolutely lovely. Beautifully made. Soft yet substantial. I ordered the other brand with the same design at half the price at the same time, but returned those. There is no comparison. These are worth twice as much. The Arche Lily fit me in size 37, but the Arche Drick fit in size 36.

I have purchased a number of pairs of Arche shoes (4 pairs within the last 3 years)and was pleased with them. However, in all cases, the rubber soles, formerly black, have acquired a greyish patina like the rubber has oxidized. I have given them a low rating in all categories because I don't think any one will find them comfortable or stylish once the soles have turned grey. These are expensive shoes and should last both structurally and visually. Some pairs were seldom worn and are less than a year old; others were worn more frequently. The discoloration is the same no matter the rate of usage.

I love these sandals: they felt soft and comfortably cushiony. However, the back zip portion comes up a little high for my taste, and feels a little odd.

I LOVE wearing this shoe. I bought it in March and have worn it so many times. The comfort is wonderful: the sole is both a barrier to the hard city sidewalks as well as a cushion for my foot. The leather is soft and supple and conforms to my foot. I've easily worn these boots in hot weather. They look fabulous with so many different outfits and I get many compliments on them. Like other Arche shoes/boots - a few wears are needed to get that exact conforming to my foot. Then it's like heaven.

I have Plantar Fasciitis and this is the only shoes I can wear that does not hurt my feet after just a few minutes. I actually used this to go dance the night away and not feel like crying due to feet pains at the end of the night and the next morning! On top of this I get complimentary comments on the shoes and I would get queries on the name brand. The shoes felt wider than marked I think because of the softness of the material. I bit the bullet and ordered another one, in black. Thank goodness my climate allows me to wear this footwear practically year-round.

I think this is the most comfortable pair of shoes I ever owned. The style is very cute, the fit is perfect. I feel like I am wearing slippers.

Absolutely fabulous shoe. Wear it right out of the box. Fashion meets comfort and function. True to size. Lightweight and flexible.

This wonderful shoe has already garnered many compliments from friends and family. A bonus to the real value which is comfort, comfort, comfort. A wonderful summer shoe that can be worn barefoot with casual sporty outfits and still has style. Good footbed, just the right snugness around the heel and toes. I love Arche

I love them. I have a pair I wear to the dog park, a pair for everyday and a pair for when I want to dress up! They're classics, and they're beautiful, graceful like Grace Kelly or Jackie Onassis.

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.
