The bulbous look of the shoe in the pictures had me a little concerned, but the simplicity and reputation of these shoes led me to buy them. The upper was very comfortable, but I was surprised that the shoe initially lacked cushioning and had very little arch support. So given the fact that I did not break them in I give them a 4 for comfort. That and the fact that I was looking for a slightly more "dressed up" look, I sent them back.

We had a bad experience with the Camper Pelotas. For full disclosure we bought it from a Camper Store instead of online. But we feel compelled to share our experience here because these shoes can be dangerous! On July 27, 2016, we purchased the product after being informed by a Camper staff member that the Pelotas Ariel is one of the most comfortable and best-selling walking shoes. We decided to purchase one pair first for my man to experience it. We were not informed of any potential issues in wearing these shoes. However, our experience with the Pelotas Ariel turned out to be a nightmare. The shoes tend to SUDDENLY BECOME EXTREMELY SLIPPERY once there’s any water on most surfaces. The second time he wore it, there were some water drops on a restroom floor, and the shoes suddenly became slippery as he tried to exit the restroom. The shoe slipped again as he walked out of the restroom towards the door when there were also some water drops on the floor. I then walked in the exact same spots and didn’t experience any particular slipperiness with my shoes (rubber soled sandals from Birkenstock). We realized that the slips were not coincidental, and concluded that the shoes probably should be returned ASAP. Thus we decided to walk to the closest Camper Store to return the shoes and to buy some other shoes. On our way to the shoe store, it started to rain. Suddenly, on a regular sidewalk his shoes lost traction and he fell on his back. I was walking besides him on the same surface and did not feel any slipperiness (nor did it seem to affect the many other people walking on the street that day). We discovered that the ball-shaped bubbles on the bottom could cause people to suddenly lose balance. In addition, when we searched Google with “Pelotas Ariel Slippery” as keyword, we found that this was actually a known problem. Due to the fall, he scratched his elbow and suffered multiple bruises on his lower back. The fall also caused significant damage to our property since they were in his backpack when he fell. After this we tried to find out the contact information of the Camper corporate headquarters and was told over their customer service line that we should submit a complaint over their website about the incident. However, we have never heard from the company in the next couple of months. When we called the company about our experience, every time we were told that someone will get back to us on the same day. No message or reply ever came from Camper. When we asked them about the corporate headquarters contact information (an email/phone number/mailing address), their customer service people told us either that they don’t know or that they could not pass the contact information of their employer. We could not believe that this is how an internationally famous company treats customers so we feel compelled to share here our experience about this brand of shoes and this company. Stay away from Camper Pelotas Ariel for your own safety and well-being!

Camper Pelotas are, unequivocally, the best shoes I've ever owned. I've purchased two pairs - one more than a decade ago - and both have proven to be durable and comfortable. I wore my first pair of Pelotas five times a week for ten years (and they're still in rotation!). They're indestructible...if you think Dr. Martens last forever, you're in for a huge surprise. Pros: Exceptional build and materials. The leather is supple and the stitching is top-notch. I've worn my Campers in sand and salt water. I've spilled gasoline on them. I've tromped through mud and left them in a hot car. You cannot wear these shoes out. The sole is likewise very durable. The signature Camper "bubble" tread takes awhile to wear in - for the first few months they are very slippery on wet floors - but ten years later the tread shows little evidence of wear. Cons: They tend to run a bit narrow for my taste. I order a size up to compensate and wear them with thick socks. The Peu Cami tends to run a bit wider, and is perfect to wear without socks. This may seem like a steep price for a pair of shoes. But you'll fall in love instantly and have them forever. Do it! Your feet will thank you. They deserve every accolade.

Instantly comfortable, leather is soft, style is low key but original. I usually wear a size 10.5 and the 11 in these fits perfectly.

I'd also recommend: Blundstone
