Love this shoe! I was hesitant about spending this much on a shoe without trying it on. I am so glad I took the chance. This is one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn on my short, fat, wide feet!

It's been a few years since I had to buy a dressier shoe. Thank goodness for Zappos, with their extensive collection of wide widths. I rejected 7 other shoes before choosing these. They are comfortable right out of the box. The heel is stable but not too matronly. I found that with the previous 7 rejects, if the toe box was wide enough, my heel slipped out. The straps on this one keep the shoe firmly on my foot. The fake-snake on the side give it some hipness. And my high arches are happy to get some support. Aravon for the win!

This is my second pair of Aravon shoes, (my first pair after 5 years is still great). I could wear the Portia all day, and not even think about having shoes on. So comfortable, fashionable, and trim looking. EXCEPT... I ruin so many pairs of pantyhose because of the velcro fasteners. Hopefully my shoe repair person can change them to a snap or buckle. Will not purchase velcro fasteners again. Wish... more navy colors.

In my no-longer-endless search for really comfortable shoes - a little dressy, and with a bit of a heel - for choir concerts, I ordered a ridiculous number to try. I'd searched for brand recommendations for shoes with a wide toe area and narrow heel and had found Aravon on a short list. Well, these babies won the competition, but I had to play around with the size. Thanks to a neuroma "situation" in the last couple of years, I've gone to Wide. But I found myself swimming, lengthwise, in my usual 9W. So I ordered two more pairs, in 8.5D and 8.5EE. I ended up keeping the last one: first 8.5 shoes I've bought in many years; first EE ever. They're not quite perfect - the heel is still too roomy (duh, they're EE) - but the strap makes everything nice and secure, and the overall comfort is great. (This assessment comes following their first busy concert day, too!) And the amazing thing is, they really don't look all that wide, nor do they have that depressing long boat look. I think the diagonal lines of the strap help with this. Dare I say they're almost dainty-looking on my not-so-dainty feet? Even after paying more than I usually do, I am relieved and happy. Thanks, Z!

I'd also recommend: Clarks, Cobb Hill, Earth, Naturalizer, Sofft, Vaneli

These are one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever put on my foot!This brand is part of the new balance family so that makes sense. I highly recommend these if you plan to do a lot of walking and want a casual heel.
