Naot Kumara - Most comfortable shoe ever. I have 2 pair, well worth the price. Very supportive footbed and kind of becomes "one" with your foot, yet the soft leather upper allows for all the bumps and bunions. I don't need my orthotics in them because they are so supportive Dressier than tennis shoes. I have had LOTS of positive comments, and I would buy another similar Naot styleRead more » « Show less May 20, 2007 by Anonymous

Looks good, but no comfort - I really loved the look of this shoe, but the back was too high. It rubbed & irritated my foot. NO arch support-couldn't believe 88% said it had excellent support! I tried to fit an arch support in, but it made it too tight. I wear a 7 1/2, and usually a 38 will fit (if it is wide), sometimes I need a 39. This one was a 39, despite what the manufacturer said about it running large. (I wish European's came in half sizes.) Anyway, the shoe just didn't work for me, so it's a return.Read more » « Show less April 15, 2008 by Anonymous

Kumera - This shoe is magnificent. Great arch support and light weight. You barely know you have shoes on.

Great working shoes. Very comfortable. I have been through three pairs of these already. I have long, bony and narrow feet, so it is very hard to find shoes that fit right. But these shoes work great for me since I am on my feet at least 8 hours a day. Expensive shoes, but I take it as an investment for my feet. My feet deserve to be comfortable.

Thanks to Zappos' "Notify Me" offer, I was able to snag a pair of these beauties in my size in the steel grey/black combination, which actually looks more like a low-sheen dark denim, very snazzy with blue jeans. This is my fourth pair of Kumara: does that tell you anything about comfort? They're glove-leather soft, require not a moment's breaking in, and cushion your every step. I do appreciate the laces, since the leather's softness means it tends to stretch out some. But day in, day out these are my go-to choice for casual good looks with walk-all-day comfort.

This shoe is beautiful; it is a dark metallic blue, not a light denim color like the implies. It's very soft leather so it requires no break in time, but also doesn't have the support of other Naots. I can tell it will be the shoe I put on at the end of the day when I travel, but probably not for all day wear.
