Needed a shoe I could wear with either dresses or pantsuits. I've got bad bunions on both feet but a narrow heel. Besides that, I've forgotten how to walk in heels! These shoes are perfect: rounded toe with a high toebox and a strap so that the heel doesn't slip off. The leather's excellent. The heel's high enough to be dressy but low and wide enough to give stability. Normally wear a 9 WW but the 9W was fine. Would definitely recommend!

I was so excited about this shoe, but I'm disappointed. I kept it because I'm so desperate, but be aware that this is a very clunky looking shoe and is not as comfortable as it should be considering its lack of beauty. I walk about 11,000 steps in the course of my day, and by the end of the day the shoe is pinching my little toes -- the toe box just isn't wide enough. I do not have abnormally wide feet and am perfectly comfortable in Princess Reeboks, but I just can't find a decent dress shoe. The leather is very stiff and unforgiving. A real disappointment.

These shoes are both dressy and comfortable for my extra wide feet. They leave me feeling energized. These are work shoes that I do not take off immediately when I get home. I now own this style in three colors and wish I had more. The sole took a little getting used to as it is like walking in flexible clogs. They provide great arch support and these flex with the toes. I like them best with pants but will wear with skirts and dresses. They are not quite dressy enough for job interviews.

Finally shoes with style,excellent arch support,and perfect heel height. They go with jeans, slacks, and dresses. The roomy toebox allows wear with or without thin socks. Adjustable ankle strap and base of shoe provide stability, unlike Danskos that are more clunky and wobbly. Please Aarvon make more of these versatile shoes for the stylish older ladies who want color, pattern, stability and excellent arch support!

Love these shoes! They are super comfortable for my wide feet with long toes. Plenty of padding and support, and on top of that, they look good. It doesn't get any better than that.

This is the cutest, most comfortable shoe ever... I feel sexy in it, and yet I'm walking on clouds. I'm back on Zappos to find other Aravon styles! These are well worth the money.

These shoes were amazingly comfortable right out of the box! I was skeptical of how they would feel on bare feet, but I am so impressed. I could wear these all day without a problem. I will definitely consider other Aravon styles for my next shoe purchase.

Ordered two pairs of shoes being that I wear different sizes on each foot. Left shoe was too big but I exchanged it for a smaller size (it fits fine now). The right shoe is just fine as it was delivered. Very good shoe overall.

I needed a dressy shoe that I could walk in. This shoe is perfect. The heel is not too high, yet still gives a dressy look. I especially like the fact that the toe box is high enough to accommodate my problematic big toe. I must admit that I own a similar pair of Aravon shoes so I knew they would fit, reducing concerns about buying shoes online without trying them on. I was amazed at how quickly they arrived.

I bought these during my second pregnancy and gave me all the support I needed and still stylish to wear in the office. My feet, legs, and hips never hurt. Great, comfortable shoes. I bought the Tacco arch supports to give me extra support.

I bought these shoes for a wedding and I could have danced all night on my hammer toe feet! They seem true to size and stylish. Sometimes I have to buy a WW, but a W was wide enough. I look forward to buying more Aravon Shoes.

Give these shoes a try! They have a cool retro vibe and they are very comfortable. If you like to take care of your feet and have a wide toe area, these shoes will make you say sure I can walk 30 minutes to the restaurant! (I ended up getting 3 colors because they go with everything.) Also, BTW, they dyed the sole to match the shoe leather, much better look for this shoe.

Finally a shoe wide enough! After ordering 10 different pairs of shoes. I found them. With wide feet and a high instep I have alot of trouble finding shoes that fit. I'm a 30 year old teacher and am on my feet all day. These shoes aren't the best looking. But they are cute enough.

After my pregnancies my foot size is 10.5 WW, which has made shoe shopping interesting. This shoe felt good in the heel and the foot bed right away. The latch is easy and convenient, although I worry that the velcro will get dirty or worn, but it is used a lot these days. The only problem I had is that I had to break it in a little across the top of my foot. It is soft and does appear to be breaking in easily, but that was my one mark down. To be fair I do have a high curve to the top of my foot and a high arch.

These shoes are so comfortable! I have very sensitive toes and can't wear shows that rub. I was able to remove the insole and use my orthopedics (and the orthopedics don't show). Plenty of room in the toe box, without being sloppy feeling. It's hard to find style and comfort. But these fit the bill. They are very cute with tights and short skirts, or jeans. I wear an 8.5 and these are true to size.

These are awesome shoes - I now have three pairs. They are comfortable from the first wearing. I have multiple foot problems, and have undergone several foot surgeries, so for me to say these are comfortable is definitely saying something!

After spending a year and a half mostly wearing flip-flops and athletic shoes, I recently returned to work. My foot comfort requirements are high, but I have to look professional. These shoes worked like a charm. They were comfortable all day long, even on the days when I was walking a great deal. The velcro strap is particularly handy in that my foot is narrow.

he first day I received these shoes, I wore them for 6 hours and my feet didn't hurt one bit! The shoe fits my full sized orthotic perfectly and is stylish enough to wear with a dress! It was exactly what I was looking for and the comfort level is unbelievable.

These are the most comfortable dress shoes that I have ever owned! The first time I tried them on they were like walking on marshmallows. They heel is very stable, easy to hook the shoe.The shoes I got said they were a AA in width, but I wear Med. to Wide, so it has to be a mistake. They look like they are Med. in width and true to size both in length and width.I qualify all of this by the fact that my right leg is very weak from Neuropathy and knee surgeries, so a shoe with a heel has to be stable and comfortable!

You should care about your feet: you only get 2. That said, I'm really happy I got these shoes! Needed a 'stylish'/dress shoe for work where I'm on my feet 8-10+ hours at a time, and the shoe had to look nice enough with shorts or a skirt. I normally wear a 9. But decided to get the Aravon Maya in 9.5 (when standing, working for that many hours, your feet tend to swell and need extra room). For this reason, the 9.5 is perfect. Another note: My feet aren't necessarily wide but I'm not comfortable wearing pointy-toe shoes or styles which taper around the toe because I'm fighting off bunions. The Aravon Maya gives me all the room I need. If you're shopping for this shoe, you care about your feet and care about being comfortable. Me, too! I mostly/only wear Birkenstocks (have 5 stylish pairs of those); occasionally I wear Born when I need something cuter. (I only wear 'torture shoes' if I'm going to a party or someplace where I'll be SITTING down.)

I tried these on in a store and will buy these for fall. They fit like a glove and are so comfortable. Great heel height. They are very stylish and my orthotics fit well in them. Plenty of room in the toe.

Brands I'd also recommend: Naot has a good product also for orthotic wearers.
