Love these; they're cute, super comfortable, and have very good arch support, much better than is found in most shoes(I have a med to high arch). I wear a 7W. Also, they're very lightweight, so perfect to pack for traveling, even in your carry-on. The fabric is lightweight and seems strong with a dense weave. I have worn them about 10 times already, and there are no pulled threads or anything. It doesn't seem like the kind of fabric to pull or pill. My main concern is that my big toenail is going to wear through the fabric in a short period of time, and make a hole. None of the reviews mentioned that happening, but people may write their reviews before they've had the shoe long enough (as I am doing!). For what they cost, that should not be happening. I was wishing there was some kind of reinforcement over the toe area, but there is not. I can't detract from the score for something that hasn't happened (yet) however, so will give it the highest marks.

Beautiful shoes, but would not stay on my feet. My heels kept popping out, and a smaller size would have been too small. The nubby thing that is at the top of the shoe, in the picture, is an elastic string which can be pulled to tighten the fit of the shoe opening, but then you are stuck with an elastic loop at the top of your foot, and it just doesn't look good. Also, orthotic inserts did not fit. I'm disappointed, because the shoe looks cute and comfy otherwise.

I ordered these shoes as I was going to be doing a lot of walking in Europe. When I received them, I thought they did not look like they were worth the price and figured I'd send them back. I put them in my bag "just in case", and once I put them on, I never wore another pair of shoes again. We walked between 5-10 miles every day and I never even knew I was wearing shoes. These are the best shoes ever and definitely cute! I did order in a smaller size than I normally wear. Thank you!

I am really enjoying these shoes. A lady in the grocery store stopped and took a picture of my Arcopedicos and asked me all about them. I told her they are very comfy and to buy them at Zappos. Super lightweight on my feet and very supportive. I will try another style from this designer in the near future.

I love these shoes. I have very difficult feet to fit for shoes (Rheumatoid Arthritis has caused a lot of bony changes), but these feel great! The top part of the shoe is very forgiving so my hammertoes and bunions do not hurt. A lot of shoes cause pressure spots on those areas. The shoes can also look dressy enough for work (unless your shoes need to be a polishable surface) and can be dressed down to wear with a summer dress or shorts. I only wish they came in more colors.

Arcopedicos are wonderful travel shoes. They are attractive enough for walking in cities and sturdy enough for hikes in the countryside. This particular style is completely washable--another plus. I have toured and hiked all over Greece in the same pair of shoes and they always looked good.

It's like walking barefoot with arch support. I did have to re-order next size up - so they are not quite true to size.

I purchased these shoes just before an international trip, and they arrived just the night before. I didn't know if they would even fit, much to my relief, they fit well and I wore them on the plane. The only thing is my feet , on arrival, had swollen from a combination of the extreme heat and too many hours on my feet (I had worked physically for about 10 hours before leaving for airport and counting the hours in the air, it came to about 18). But a day later, my feet were back to normal and the shoes were once again perfect. Have I mentioned how light they are? These are comfortable for anyone with flat feet (and high insoles) and if you have a bunion, in other words, less than perfect, feet.

Brands I'd also recommend: Arche (except they are far too expensive)

Love these shoes! The first day or so, it took a bit to get used to them. My feet kind of ached, and I thought maybe it was because the inside of the shoes aren't super squishy. I assumed they were just too hard, but I kept wearing them every day, and now I wear them all day with no problems. I'm a teacher, so I'm on my feet for pretty much 8 hours a day, and these don't hurt my feet at all. They're great, not to mention very cute. I get compliments on them all the time! Just make sure you wear some sort of sock with them, otherwise your foot will slip around inside of it because it comes with an insole that is separate from the shoe.

Excellent shoe, comfortable and lightweight but has good arch support, looks good with skirts or pants, adjustable drawstring buckle is a bonus for customized fit, famous removable Arcopedico foot bed, too.

I really wanted this shoe to work out, but I have to agree that the arch was too high. It feels like there is a super ball in my shoe. The flexibility of the material on top was great though. The size was perfect.

These are really fun shoes! They are very comfortable and good for feet that need room in the toes. They run a little large and I have been wearing them with thin dress socks.

I really liked the color and comfort of this slipper. When I read all the reviews and people referred to this as a slipper, I was thinking "ballet slipper." But it really is like a house slipper, and that is not what I wanted. So thanks to Zappos wonderful return policy, I am returning this shoe. I'll continue to look for something as comfortable as this Arcopedico L14, but more shoe like.

Brands I'd also recommend: hush puppies, merrill, keen

I was surprised by how much I like these shoes! They are really comfortable out of the box, though I'm not sure how they will be out on the street. Very little padding under ball of the foot and more arch support than I prefer. But boy, they look good (better than you would think from the pics), and feel as comfortable as bedroom slippers. I wear 11 to 11 1/2, and I would have been happier with Euro size 43, but the 42 works.

I bought these shoes to wear in Israel and Greece this summer, 2011. I wore them every day every where. My feet NEVER got tired, and if you can walk the streets of Jerusalem in these shoes and not hurt at the end of the day, they are a must buy. They were so soft, light weight, and cute. They were soft like a glove on your foot, I got tons of complements where ever I was. I bought the camel color, and it went with skirts and capris which is all I wear when traveling in Europe in the summer.

These shoes are my best friend. Walking shoes are not my thing but these are so comfy I forget to take them off. They also go with everything, they are sort of inconspicuous. I'm so glad I found them! Plus they are completely free of animal materials!

I love these shoes. They feel like wearing slippers but I think they are very cute in an ugly duckling way. I wear them for San Francisco evenings combining walking and going to dinner. I am hoping to wear them in Italy as a primary walking shoe, and will have to see how that goes. They do not hurt a bunion I have. They may be a little loose for some people if you want shoes with lots of hold/support around the top, but they work well for me.

I bought these shoes for traveling to Israel and Greece. These were the best shoes I ever had for walking. They were so soft on the feet, gave great support, and were totally cute. I got lots of compliments from the people on the tour group. I bought the camel colored and it went with everything. Walking the cobblestones and the back streets of old Jerusalem is not easy and these shoes made it a breeze. I am so glad I found these.

I like this shoe - absolutely comfy for someone with bunions on both feet. I am not into risks of surgery and being out of commission and find these shoes attractive and comfy!

I wanted to love these shoes. They're so comfortable, but could never get the bungee cord to adjust quite right, the elastic was always a bit too loose so it made the shoe unstable inward and outward. Bummer.
