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.

Amazing! Amazing! These boots are so incredible lightweight and yet supportive to feet. For me, the 37 was a bit small and the 38 way too big,so I'm keeping the 37 hoping it will stretch a little. Even small, though, they're the most comfortable boots I've tried. They're cute enough...not stunning,but with black leggings they look good.

I had been looking for an ankle boot for over a year before I found these gems. I was a little concerned with the "slipper" style, but the look, the comfort, the warmth -- it is an incredible boot. The arch support is serious, so be ready for it. It has helped with the alignment in my legs and hips. These are an absolute dream.

My second pair love them. Arcapedico is my favorite shoe brand! If you have any foot problems or your on your feet for lengths of time this is your brand of shoe to buy. I have neurotrophic nerve damage in my feet and these are the most comfortable shoes I have found.i can wear them all day,cute too.

I love Arcopedico for the comfort and support. I am frequently dealing with foot pain from running and walking a lot. I like the bootie style of this shoe and the fit and comfort do not disappoint. The synthetic materials do look a little cheap for the actual price and quality of the shoe, but I love that these shoes are vegan and in my experience they are pretty durable.

I love my Arcopeico L19 short boots! I bought a pair last year in the a different color, and loved them so much that I bought them in black this year. I have foot issues, especially a hammer toe and the soft top works great for them. I was able to wear my boots all day on the first day! For me they are even more comfortable than slippers. I highly recommend them.

Despite the fact that these are not leather I decided to try them for the comfort factor. I just returned from a week in Portland OR where I wore them nearly every day. They are indeed the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I do not have any foot problems - I just love to be comfortable. The reason I did not wear them every day is that they are NOT waterproof despite what others have written. I even sprayed them with a waterproof sealant before I wore them. It rained every day while I visited and I did not wade through puddles in them but I did get caught in two downpours. I highly recommend them for style and comfort but don't expect them to be waterproof.

I was looking for a super comfortable bootie for long distance walking that I would also be able to sprint in if the occasion warranted. This bootie fit my requirements perfectly. The fabric looks like leather and it's slightly stretchy so it comforms to my foot. The footbed has very good arch support, and a slight heel. It felt very comfortable and there will be no break-in necessary. Love it!

Wow! So comfy! I hope it feels that when I wear them outside!Like many reviewers, I have problem feet (arthritis, bunion, metarsal issues). These cute, form fitting boots allow me to wiggle by wide-ish foot just enough to believe they won't hurt my bunions when wearing them outside, and that the soft material will also help. I do like the arch support, but we'll see. I wear custom orthotics usually. I got these not for long walks, which I wear NB sneaks for, but to look pulled together for events/functions/girls night. I'll report back after they get some use. For now, though, I'm delighted!

This is a very lightweight shoe. The arch and heel are well-supported, while the ball of the feet and toes have a lot of flexibility. This makes the shoe feel like a combination of an orthotic and a minimalist shoe. I have plantar fasciitis, and I have worn these several times with no issue. I'm a little worried about how well the seam between outsole and sole will wear, as it looks like it is already a bit puckered. So stay tuned for an update as these age, particularly after I throw them in the wash.

Lindy

I got the L8s in blue and loved them. I could be on my feet all day. I wanted a maryjane so tried the Scala. Size 39 was way too big and the leather was a bit stiff. I returned them and got the L18 in size 38. Those were way too short and big in the heel so I knew they wouldn't work out even in a 39. So, because the L series has an amazing foot bed and arch support, I got the L19. Ahhhh heaven on my feet. Again all day wear and legs don't ache. Zappos was so patient and helpful. I would never buy shoes online from anyone else.

I've loved other arcopedico shoes, but these boots were a big disappointment. The materials felt cheap, and the sizing did not fit like the shoes. I am returning, not exchanging. Bummer.

Wow!! Ok, these are not the cutest boot, pretty conservative and very basic for me, HOWEVER, so comfy!! i haven't actually worn them yet, I just received them, but let me say, it felt like I was putting on slippers! I hope like one reviewer, I will be able to use these while touring in Paris in a few weeks in super comfort!! I have a bunion, so I needed something to accommodate that darned thing! Fingers crossed!

I am so happy with these shoes. They are vegan and stylish (I have gotten many "cute shoes" from people), they clean easily (in the washing machine), and they are so extraordinarily comfortable. Whether I am standing a lot at work or walking a few miles at a large conference, I have no foot pain at the end of the day. I am a total Arcopediconvert.

Not one who usually writes reviews, but I have to share my thoughts on this boot (purchased it in the gray as well as in red). Both pairs are very cute with pants, jeans, or with tights and a skirt and are ridiculously comfortable! I've had prior surgeries on both feet and recently developed a (I hate this word--) bunion on my left foot. Finding comfortable shoes that look good enough for business casual attire @ work yet are still comfortable is increasingly challenging. The Arcopedico L19 meets all criteria. Other reviewers who stated this shoe feels like bedroom slippers were not exaggerating--they really feel that good. The machine washable part is crazy (!), and the price is reasonable. (FYI: Usually I wear a 6.5/7 shoe--got this in a 38 instead of a 37 so I can wear with socks; size 38 is perfect.) Highly recommend purchasing this style--I will likely add more colors myself before long!

Although I'm still getting use to the style - a bit thinner and smaller than what I'm use to in a boot (I like my Mucks & Blundstones) - I love these boots. They are super comfortable, lightweight so great for travel, and vegan! Feel like I'm walking on air.

The arch support is painfully high for me--I have to return these. Also, I usually wear a size 10, and ordered this boot in 41. I had tried on a 42 in a store, and it was MUCH too long, so I hoped 41 would work. (The store didn't have size 41.) Definitely too short. It seems like an awfully large difference between the 41 and 42.

I am amazed at how comfortable these are. I am prone to foot pain and I found that the arch support in these shoes completely alleviates that pain. I received them three days ago and I've already walked fifteen miles in them. My only complaint is that they run small. I normally wear a size 10.5 and my toes come close to the tip of the size 42. Luckily, the fabric stretches so it's not uncomfortable but I wish I could buy them in a size 43.

I have high arches. Super high arches. So when I stumbled across a shoe brand supposedly designed around people like me, I was pretty excited. I'd been looking for a pair of short booties for the cold months and these were just what I had in mind. Truth be told what I really wanted was something reminiscent of Star Wars and these were just what I had in mind! Anyway I loved the look right away but am far less than impressed with the so-called arch support. The shoe's arch is set in a place that doesn't actually align with my foot and it's actually quite uncomfortable after a couple of hours. I'm annoyed with myself for not thinking that this would be a possible scenario. I mean, duh! All feet are different. So this shoe may in fact have amazing arch support for those with high arches, but only if your feet are totally different from mine. It's a gamble, is what I'm saying. Don't assume these will work for you right out of the box. I had to get custom inserts. I kept the boots because I like how they look but the main selling point of the shoe was worthless to me.

I ADORE these boots!! After spending years teaching in high heels, then running (often after small children) I have abused my poor feet! These boots are like dreamy clouds! I wear them with everything, every day and they look still look terrific! If I get mud on them a quick swipe with a wet rag cleans them right up. They are wonderful!

These boots are light as a feather yet provide loads of support. They are incredibly comfortable with a soft footbed and a fabric upper that allows your toes to wiggle and breathe. I am sure that I will use them all four seasons. I know from other Arcopedico shoes that the soles will take a long and hard beating before showing any wear at all.
