Best shoe in the world! I have never worn a shoe as comfortable in my life--and I do love my shoes. As I turned 50 my feet "shifted". I found my first pair of Arche's when I could barely walk anymore in London. I wear a 71/2 but went to an 8. Now I will never go anywhere with out a pair. I even threw a suede pair in the washer on gentle, put shoe trees in them to dry-like new

This is a nice, simple little ballet, but I wish the soles would have been more substantive. They are fairly thin. I didn't think I would be able to walk in them for a good part of the day, so I am returning them. Many have commented that the shoe runs small; I normally wear a size 7 or 7-1/2 and went with my normal size, 38. It was a little snug, but jumping up to size 39 might not have worked. This shoe would be more successful if it came in half sizes, as ballets are sometimes hard to fit anyway. For a shoe of this price range, you'd think Arche would care enough about fit to offer half sizes.

I wish I could wear these all the time -- well, I practically do. I have foot problems (bunions and poor arches), and a teaching job that involves standing and walking all day long. The Arche Laius are soft and flexible, and so comfortable! Their classic ballet style goes with everything from jeans to evening clothes. There's no question that they are expensive, but absolutely worth the price. In the long run, they have proved to be a much better buy than the many pairs of cheaper and less well-made shoes that end up sitting in my closet.

Nice shoe but not narrow enough for those of us with narrow feet.

I purchased this shoe right before I went to Paris! I don't know what I would have done without it. It looked so good with capris, and I felt like I fit right in with the Parisians. Most importantly, it was so comfortable. I have a rather large bunion, but it fit right over it. I did not feel like there was any problem with the arch, which I thought was going to bother me. I wore them every waking moment for 8 days. I just ordered another pair in another color as they are on sale. My shoe was the one that kind of looks like faux lizard skin, can't remember the name of it.
