I have bunions, ingrown toe nails, and flat feet. I had concerns about buying these shoes based on some of the reviews and the fact they were a bit over my budget, but I've purchased Arcopedico shoes before and loved them, so I thought I would take a chance with these as I needed good walking shoes for a trip to China and loved the idea of bringing one pair of comfortable black boots with inside zippers for easy removal that I could wear with my jeans or dress pants. I had absolutely no problems and was very pleased with them. One reason they are so comfortable is they are very thin and lightweight, and I was concerned that they might not provide enough support, especially because they also seemed to fit a bit loose. However, I remedied that by pairing them up with wonderful socks (Drymax Sport Socks Hiking Crew 4-Pair Pack), and together I had the support and comfort I needed to walk the city with absolutely no aches, no pains, no tired flat feet. In fact, on the flight to China, I removed these to put on the packaged slippers the airline provided, but I ended up putting these back on for the entire flight there as well as the return flight because they were more comfortable. My trip was 13 days; I wore these every day except one day of mountain hiking which required sturdier hiking boots, the only other pair of shoes I brought with me!

Pros: Very lightweight. Cons: Material and construction look cheap, and they aren't! Synthetic material resembles cheap plastic.

These are dreamy! Fabulous arch support, and very lightweight. I need a wider toe box than most, and these fit the bill. Love them!

I have wide feet and I usually wear a 39½ or 40 in European sizing. I bought these in a 40 and was surprised that they were way too short. I exchanged them for a 41 and they are perfect. I am now wearing them every day, and expect them to be my favorite shoes for an upcoming trip to Rome. I think they look great with slacks and jeans.

I just returned from a two week trip to Italy where I did a great amount of walking (at least 9 miles every day). These boots were lifesavers! I highly recommend them!

These shoes are nice but though it's a boot, it's a very thin boot. These shoes are just a bit thicker than a sock. Very flexible and pliable. The color is nice. It has a slight sheen and glitter aesthetic. They are super comfy when worn with trouser socks, but if you wear them with regular socks they're a bit too tight. Lastly, I've worn them for two weeks and already the finish on them is starting to fade at the ball of the foot. I think they are overpriced for the quality.

Having learned that producing beef uses 10 times as much fossil fuels as raising other animals, I've decided to wear less leather. These very comfortable ankle boots are synthetic but look as good as leather. The uppers are soft and flexible and they have great support for high-ish arches.

No surprise that I like these booties as I am a long time Arcopedico fan. I wear with leggings, skirts, dresses and pant. They look very up to date and the slight lift of the heel makes them super comfortable.

A friend of mine recommended these boots. She had purchased hers prior to a trip to England. She wore them during very heavy rain, but they still looked new. I hesitated about buying "on line", because I wasn't sure about the fit or comfort. But when I received them, I got the surprise of my life. They fit perfectly and are about the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned.

Let me state from the beginning that I have a hard time finding shoes that feel right and comfortable, and that I returned these shoes. I really wanted to like and keep them. I felt like the arch was just a little off for me, which affects the comfort. For the price of the shoe, I want to slip my foot in and feel immediate comfort. The rest of the shoe was comfy and I loved that they are lightweight and easy to move the ankle in. I think the style is cute. I understand why some people thought they looked cheap, but I didn't feel that way.

I LOVE these boots. I bought them a week before I departed for a two-week trip to Italy, so I was nervous about not having much time to break them in. But these boots were perfect and wearable right out of the box. They are supremely comfortable and yet very supportive. I wore them to fly, and the zipper makes them easy to take off and put on during airport security. Then I walked all over Rome in these. They got soaked one day (not waterproof) but dried out in less than a day. I would give them more than 5 stars for "overall" if I could. The only drawback is expressed in the 4 I gave for style. I wouldn't say they are unstylish or unattractive, but there is a certain amount of style trade-off for the comfort of these boots. So they don't look a cool as patent leather boots with a pointy-toe and 4" heels. But who wants to walk around in those anyway? These are the perfect traveling and walking boots.

Ok, so I was not so excited about my first pair of these shoes in the brown textured pattern. I thought the fabric looked cheap, and I still kind of do. However, the comfort won me over. I wore my size 37s constantly and I am a teacher so I'm on my feet on concrete floors all day long. I even wore these through my pregnancy. I liked them so much I decided to buy a new pair (2 years later) in black. My only mistake was not realizing that I now need a size 38 due to the post-baby foot expansion. I usually wear supports in all of my shoes, including these, and so I need more room to compensate for that. I will be returning the pair of faux black leather, and opting for the faux black suede. Maybe I will like the look of that fabric more. I hope so.

These are beautiful but I have not really worn them yet. It is still summer time here. When fall comes I will begin to wear them. Therefore I really can't give an honest answer to the questions below.

I was so bummed that the size 38 was too tight (my big toe was right up against the front of the shoe) and the size 39 was too big. The boots are so cute and would go great with dresses, leggings, pants, etc. I wanted them to fit but I've learned my lesson several times. If these do fit you, I consider you lucky. They are incredibly light, have good arch support (if your foot doesn't slide) and super stylish. I loved the material and they had just the right amount of shine. Thanks Zappos for making the shipping to and returns so easy!

I'm torn on these. They are cute, lightweight, and feel like slippers. The arch support is good, and it feels like there's a metatarsal arch support in there, too, which is wonderful. I really like that they are water resistant because it rains a lot in the fall and I find rain boots to be gross and uncomfortable. The fabric looks a little weird and cheap up close, but on your feet, it looks fine. The downside is that these boots definitely run small, and unfortunately, I've already purchased the largest size available. The toe box is also very narrow, which crowds my toes and adds to the overall feeling of the shoe being too small. I've been wearing them around the house for a few hours but I really won't be able to tell whether they are going to work until I walk nonstop for half a mile or so. I'm loathe to lose the water resistance, but I think I'm better off returning them for the N42, which has a much wider toe box.

My foot pain when walking nearly disappeared entirely the second I zipped into these ultra sleek and cute booties. What a relief, 30 years of questionable footwear choices had finally caught up with me, now with bunions, wide, flat feet and now an arthritic toe joint, these boots help me keep it together. A lot cuter than they look and this lycra fabric is fabulous...all shoes should be made out of this miracle fabric. I feel very bad*ss space age femme fatale in these boots.

These are the most amazing boots. Really comfortable and cute. It got the size 39 for my size 8 wide foot and they fit perfectly. I have the black in size 40 and they are a little big but still ok. Love the color too. Neutral but still interesting.

These boots are very comfortable. I walk a few miles every day, and I never get blisters or have pain in my feet. I have bought four pairs of these boots so far. I also have bunions, and these boots do not hurt my feet.

I brought these shoes with me to Paris for 8 days and wore them every single day. Walked on different surfaces and found great stability, my feet were in heaven for daily 12-16 miles trek around the city. The best part is I rinsed them in the sink at the end of the day to clean off the sand/dirt from the parks; just avoid getting water on the zippers and your shoes stays dry in the rinse off.

I am obsessed with these boots! Since I purchased them, they have been my go to boots! The comfort is beyond compare! They feel like pillows on your feet. Lightweight, washable, comfortable and stylish! I have them in black and am now going to order them in brown. I travel a lot, and they are perfect for getting through airport security quickly! I highly recommend them! They are worth every penny!

I bought my first pair in a local store, the oxford style which I love. I have been wondering why shoemakers did not make more shoes with fabric that can mold around feet with bunions. I purchased a size 40 because they were the most comfortable. When I ordered two more pair, different styles online, I ordered 39 because that is my shoe size 8-8 1/2. However, both pair are too short. I am glad Zappos offers a free return policy.

These shoes are like slippers and yet they have good traction for the road, and they are stylish enough -- love them. The width is fine, but they do run a half size small. This is my third pair of Arcopedicos, and I learned after my first to order a half size larger with all future orders. I'm a perfect size nine, and this is the first time I've had to do this with a shoe, so that should tell you something.

I really wanted to love this shoe, but it was too small, and the larger size was out of stock. I can see where this would be an awesome shoe for people with problem feet - it is very stretchy, so it would accommodate bunions and the like; it is really lightweight; it has really good arch support. (I didn't mark it as having 'excellent' arch support because I felt the arch support was a little soft.) I would have loved walking around in these. I especially appreciated how lightweight they are.

This boot is so lightweight, comfortable and most importantly so well insulated that with a thick sock, your feet will be warm and cozy. I was looking for something that would keep my feet warm during the winter and this does it. It's amazing.
