I loved the look and feel of this boot BUT the calf is definitely not as stretchy as advertised. I don't have tiny calves but they're not gigantic either. I was finally able to zip them up on my bare skin but that was with a struggle and then it felt like a tourniquet. I'm sad that I have to return them but hopefully I find a pair like them but with a wider calf.

I ordered these and the Bella, and while I usually go for a full rubber sole, I kept these and returned the Bella. The Bel is more youthful and the small heel elevates the shoe to paraphrase another reviewer, they look more expensive than they are. I really needed something for interviews and more formal days at work, and am avoiding heels due to a recent injury. These really fit the bill and I think they are dressy enough to wear with a skirt or dress.

Very comfortable. I take one star away for the glittery area at the top. I'm not one for that but the rest of the shoe is great. The leather is soft. The zipper, which was another feature I thought was just for looks and a little iffy in the style front, is actually very handy. No need to unlace!

These boots are fabulous & so comfy. My feet never hurt. My feet felt as they do, after a day in comfy sneakers. Love the little heel and sleek design. The shaft was very flexible. I wore them in NY. Walked over 15k steps per day for an entire week.

Great shoe. Attractive and comfortable right out of the box. You can dress it up or dress it down.

These boots are comfortable right out of the box and super cute. However, I do not like the laces. They are long and slippery and came undone while just trying these out in the house. I will exchange for a zipper model.

I was all set to really love this shoe based on the reviews I read, but i thought it looked a little matronly when I tried it on because of top of the shoe covered quite a bit of the top of my foot. The shoe is comfortable, although it was about a half size short for me...however, I am finding that in all the brands of ballet flats that I have tried, so maybe it is my problem and the not the shoe sizing.

I was all set to love this shoe based on other reviews, but when I tried it on, I thought it looked fairly matronly because the top of the shoe covers much more of the top of the foot and somehow that is less fashionable. The shoe is comfortable, although it seemed shorter than my usual size 10. I found that was true with all three brands that I tried in this type of flat, so it may just be me.

I love ara shoes so much I have Rachael in both colors and am on my second pair in the brown. The fit, style and versatility of these pushed me to jump on the Phoebe when I saw them. Unfortunately the first pair I got had the right insole glued into the left shoe, which made for a pretty confusing fit! Zappos quickly exchanged, and I got my new pair within a week. What a bummer - the same size that fits perfectly in the Rachael is too short and too narrow in the toe box. Love the way they fit, but sadly back they go to Zappos.

I have been searching for the perfect black shootie for a long time, and believe the search is now over. These are very comfortable, sturdy, and stylish. I have high arches and these provide plenty of support. I also have a skinny ankle, and these don't slip off. I wear them mostly with skirts and dresses, especially for work. I'm usually an 8 in shoes. The 8 was a bit snug, so I bought an 8.5.

These are the ugliest shoes I've ever seen, honestly. The material is that of a rain jacket, gortex. These have no real structure and the front it like a square.

I hate to admit I've ordered over a dozen winter boots from Zappos and finally found the perfect fit and look. I'm shoe comfy picky and these are so comfy! Easy to put on! Warm enough and waterproof. And good looking with leggings or slim pants. Stylish. Love!!!

Comfortable right out of the box! And, CUTE! I needed a pair for work that were sneaker comfortable but didn't look like a sneaker. These look great in a business casual wardrobe. The navy looks nearly black, and is a great neutral. Thinking about ordering them in brown. My first pair from Ara. Will definitely consider again. A little expensive, but worth it. also designed in Germany and made in Portugal, if you are looking for shoes made somewhere besides China.

I love love love this boot. I am so lucky that when I bought it from a local store years ago, it was the perfect boot at the perfect price. I wore it to Iceland and I was warm, not slipping around on the ice, and felt comfortable walking throughout all of our day walks/casual hikes. It is also my Fall / Winter rain boot for the city as it completely repels water and snow. I wear it with a skirt and leggings to work, and it is just fine for an evening out for dinner / drinks. Very comfortable, easy to walk in, and I am probably going to cough up the money and get a second pair.

I bought these for my 95-year-old grandmother. I got them with 2 other models to see which she liked best. Although these were by far the most expensive, she chose these. They go with everything and most importantly, give her the comfort and stability she needs.

Comfortable and Attractive. Great for work. Only problem is the tie on top is adjustable and hence constantly comes undone and needs tied. With elastic you don't need the tie to be adjustable - should have just been decorative.

These are very comfortable shoes, with excellent arch support. I can walk in them all day.

After trying about 10 pairs of winter short boots they Zappos these are it! So comfortable, warm, can wear all day and I am very "comfy" shoe picky. Super stylish. Great with leggings, jeans, any pant. Love them!
