Zappos was great for my order (5 stars for this)! The shipping was very fast, and of course free :) The shoes, they're OK, I do not suggest purchasing Aravon
shoes that have black insoles
, as the bottoms of your feet will be covered in black and it is hard to get off with warm water and soap (2 stars). The style of the shoe is OK, I wear them about 3x a week to work, and they feel pretty comfortable. I typically wear a 7.5-8.5 in shoes, depending on the brand (I wear a size 9 in New Balance Running shoes
, which, if you are a runner you will know that it is suggested to purchase 1/2-1full size larger than your normal shoe size). In the past I was fitted to wear the size 8.5 AA(width) in Aravon's. They stretched about 1/2 size larger than what I needed, and they seemed about 1/2 size too big in width before they stretched. The Maura 7.0 AA(width), that I recently purchased, is a bit snug in length and width, but I assume they will stretch a bit, as well. I tried the 7.5 AA (width) in the same shoe style but I felt that they would've been a little too large after they stretched out from normal wear.
