Okay, here's the deal...these shoes are magic! I suffer from plantar fasciitis, which is very painful tendinitis in the bottom of both my feet. For the first time in 2 years, I can function normally without pain. I am seriously contemplating replacing most of the shoes I own with Earths, and I'm honestly not exaggerating! Today is the second day I've worn them and I feel a little sore in the back of my calves, but it's a "good sore," like I've done some exercise. I'm sure that will be gone in a few days as I get used to the negative heel. My back feels better and my feet feel fantastic. I cannot recommend these shoes highly enough for anyone who suffers from chronic pain, or wants to improve their posture. They are well made and don't look "orthopedic," though they have a thicker heel than a regular dress shoe. These are totally work appropriate for me and I wear them with a suit. The only drawback (which I will gladly trade) is I have to re-hem my pants! They feel very true to size and the adjustable strap is a nice feature, too.

Earth Solar - The right shoe has already lost its support in one area and is causing me to have pain in the ankle and a little way up the side of the leg. I am also disappointed in the craftsmenship of the strap. It is very poor quality. The velcro is not completely covered so it grabs hold of my stockings and destroys them. Also the leather of the strap appears to be flimsy and unfinished. I like the style of the shoe very much which makes the disappointment of these two problems even more keenly felt. I am noting that the size seemed to be a half size larger than marked which is good because I really need a ten and a half but Earth does not make size 10 & 1/2.

I took this brand new shoe with me for 10 days in Italy. I wore them every single day with miles of walking. No pain. No blisters and I didn't wear socks! I have bad bunions and haven't found a shoe that doesn't give me pain after some where (Birkenstocks and Chacos have come close). But this shoe is awesome! I don't normally get a wide, but I did and it was perfect. I'm an Earth shoe convert. They looked great with linens pants and all my skirts.

I'd also recommend: Chacos, Birkenstocks

The mahogany color has more red/purple tones and more sheen than the product photos indicate. These pinch a little around the heel until you break them in, but they're otherwise very comfortable.

Very comfortable shoe right out of the box. I have not had the nerve to wear them to work due to the negative heel. My feet love Dansko best. However, this shoe offers a pressure break to my feet and the styling is very cute. Thumbs up for the decent arch support for my high arch/instep. I also think the strap is too thin and too far back. I find it can be slightly cutting.

I'd also recommend: Dansko, Birkenstock, Merrell, Jambu

Absolutely love these shoes. Comfort is truly wonderful! My feet are so happy! The arch support is perfect. Color & size run true! The rate system below only allows for 5 stars -- I would actually give it 12 stars overall!
