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.

I must admit I was secretly hoping these shoes wouldn't fit, because then I wouldn't be tempted to buy such an expensive pair of shoes. Alas, they fit perfectly, and are so comfortable, and such a cool unusual style, that I have no choice but to keep them! I'm the kind of person who likes to go straight from boots to sandals and back to boots again. Here, I get the best of both. The style and close fit of a boot! The airiness and open-toed comfort of a sandal! I also usually find heels excruciating to walk in, but these 2-3/4" heels feel like slippers. Sigh...darn it, Arche! You've done it again!

I love Arche shoes! I save all year to buy them. However, I was deeply disillusioned to discover that the elastic does not have a long life. I tried getting it replaced at two very, skilled, reputable repair locations. They both (independently) explained that the elastic is sewn into the shoe, thus making it impossible to simply replace it. The shoe would have to be taken apart. Making a "tuck" in the elastic to shorten it, would only result in a blister from the doubled fabric and no master shoe repair expert wants the responsibility of taking a non-leather shoe apart. The shoes are too expensive to have their lifespan cut short by inferior elastic.

I have these boots in a beautiful dark red. I was in NY at the Arche store, and ordered the last pair available in red from an LA store. That's how much I knew I wanted them. The leather is buttery soft and the sole/heel are super cushiony. They what you love about a thing is also what you don't and that is the case here. If I look at this booty cross-eyed the leather tears. I have had the toe and sides of this boot glue and 're-colored' at least 5 times having only worn them 10 times. I NEVER take them to NY anymore, where the trashing is instant. As much as I love them, they are virtually unwearable due to the delicacy of the goat (?) skin. I wasted A LOT of money. I have 4 other pair of Arche in various styles and colors but all nubuck. Never again in that buttery leather.

Lovely shoe, with a rich soft suede upper (dark brown) that has special care given to the spot right at the top heel, where the edge of the shoe meets the skin. Sometimes this can have multiple seams that create a bumps that can be blister inducing but not these. And also the same area has a rise on the back of the heel so it stays on, unlike other (most shoes of this style) that I step out of when walking. The reason for the overall grade of 2 stars is after only a couple of wears the black on back side of the wedge has worn off and looks pretty shoddy. Other than that I recommend this shoe.

i love these shoes. I bought them in Paris when my Paul Green shoes failed me in the comfort department, and my dogs were barking. I wore them all day long, very comfortable, great for touring and sightseeing.no support, but like wearing a sock with a nice bouncy rubber sole.

Love this shoe. I ordered my size and the fit was perfect. Can't wait for warmer temps to wear my new shoes.

This is my perfect shoe. It fits like a glove and is soft and forms to the foot. It is so comfortable. I recommend this shoe if you are wanting total comfort.

I think these would have been incredibly comfortable if they fit properly. I am a pretty typical, standard size 8, but these left a gap between the back of my foot and the shoe. They aren't offered in half sizes and I think the 7 would be too tight - although I might go ahead and try them.

These are my favorite shoes ever. They are classy, can be worn day to evening, so comfortable (which is not a common experience for me) and they have a bit of height. Perfect.

Based on the reviews, I thought these shoes would be great - comfortable and attractive. These shoes were a disappointment; they cut into my heel and I cannot wear them for long periods of time. Unfortunately, with Zappos' return policy, I was not able to return them after wearing them. In addition, they turn my feet black when I wear them for a few hours at a time.

Love my new Arche Lilly flats. The only shoe I have found that does not dig into my bunion. Very comfortable and easy to walk long distances in. I was looking for comfort and cute and they are the only shoes that satisfy both criteria. Dealing with Zappos has been easy too. All in all a win win .
