Best shoe in the world! I have never worn a shoe as comfortable in my life--and I do love my shoes. As I turned 50 my feet "shifted". I found my first pair of Arche's when I could barely walk anymore in London. I wear a 71/2 but went to an 8. Now I will never go anywhere with out a pair. I even threw a suede pair in the washer on gentle, put shoe trees in them to dry-like new

While you will fall in love with these shoes the second you take them out of the box, don't get too excited. Mine wore out 6 months after moderate wear. They look so shabby now I am frustrated that I spent so much on them. Also, the heel progressively started digging into my skin, causing blisters. These are undeniably adorable, but I don't think they are worth the money at all.

I wish I could wear these all the time -- well, I practically do. I have foot problems (bunions and poor arches), and a teaching job that involves standing and walking all day long. The Arche Laius are soft and flexible, and so comfortable! Their classic ballet style goes with everything from jeans to evening clothes. There's no question that they are expensive, but absolutely worth the price. In the long run, they have proved to be a much better buy than the many pairs of cheaper and less well-made shoes that end up sitting in my closet.

I labored long and hard over the decision to buy these shoes at this price. I value comfort and decided to go ahead and give them a try; after all, every girl should have a great pair of plain black skimmers (and not enough shoes come in fabulous nubuck). The shoes are absolutely gorgeous and the quality seems to be impeccable. Unfortunately, mine will be going back to Zappos. I typically wear a 38/39 and I heeded the warnings to buy a size up, so I got a 40. Though the length was fine, the width was simply too narrow to be comfortable. I have an average width foot and typically fit normal width shoes. These shoes go into a point and have a very narrow toe box. I suspect they would only really be comfortable to someone who would be considered a narrow width foot. If you are that guy, these are beautiful shoes (even for such a hefty price).

Nice shoe but not narrow enough for those of us with narrow feet.

I purchased this shoe right before I went to Paris! I don't know what I would have done without it. It looked so good with capris, and I felt like I fit right in with the Parisians. Most importantly, it was so comfortable. I have a rather large bunion, but it fit right over it. I did not feel like there was any problem with the arch, which I thought was going to bother me. I wore them every waking moment for 8 days. I just ordered another pair in another color as they are on sale. My shoe was the one that kind of looks like faux lizard skin, can't remember the name of it.
