My feet hurt in most shoes and I've found Naots to be a wonderful brand that, after a short break-in time, are very comfortable. This style is very good looking and I've had many compliments on them since I purchased them. I have fairly narrow feet and find the velcro adjusts for a perfect fit. They might be a bit tight around the arch for some people. I love the red, colorful but not too flashy, a great neutral that seems to go with most of my wardrobe. They don't look "orthopedic" but seem like I've chosen them because of their style rather than for comfort. Great for walking. I like them so much that I'm contemplating purchasing them in another color.

I genuinely wish I hadn't worn these outside so I could return them, but it is what it is. First, the shoes are not comfortable - not by Naot standards. They feel a half size too small, but at the same time they rub on the heel (you'd think with all that padding in the back, they'd be fine, but no). I'm also not wild about the way they look. I wanted something more closed looking than a Mary Jane, but these seem to be a step back. With black socks you can't see any detail, and with colored socks they just look funny. Sending them off to my local thrift shop now.

As is usual for most Naot shoes, these were comfortable and wearable right out of the box. Sizing is excellent with very good arch support. The red is an excellent color that goes with just about everything. My only caveat is that the shoe has a wide band of elastic underneath the criss-cross design that is not adjustable, but is sewn in. I have a high instep and do notice that by the end of a full day I'm ready to get the shoe off as the elastic starts to get just a little tight. If you have a normal foot, you won't have any trouble with it. Overall I'm very happy with both the style and the color.

I'd also recommend: Danskos, Finn Comfort

Love em. So comfortable. Great arch support. Bought my first pair of Naots two years ago. Quite a splurge. Thought I would never love a pair of shoes as much as those white oxfords. Still wear them. Still love em. Replaced the foot bed this year and they are like new. But the RED SHOE. What comfort! What style! Can't take them off. Neat shade of red. Goes with almost everything. All day on concrete - no problem. Skirt , leggings, trousers- look great. Going to put them on now.

The elastic in the instep straps does not return to shape when stretched. The multiple straps all bump up, bunch up and do not lie flat.
