While I agree with the reviewer who compared these to bedroom slippers, the heel cup is so supportive and stabilizing that I find I walk straighter and have had absolutely no foot pain whatsoever. So there is arch support, but more from the support of the heel. They won\'t be warm enough to wear in the winter, but they are perfect otherwise.

I didn't try them on before I returned them because they looked more like felt than suede. I am a vegan, so I am not interested in the suede- these guys just looked too cheap for the price.

I love this shoe. It is very comfortable. I broke my ankle twice and needed a good shoe. This one works for me.

These little boots are attractive and comfortable. I have some bunion issues, so it's hard to find a shoe or boot that works. Arcopedico is generally good for me. They also appeal to my vanity, although comfort always takes precedence.

Heel rear support not stiff enough. Concerned that the shoe would collapse over at the heel. Otherwise a great feeling shoe/boot.

I love these boots! I am going to buy the same pair again but in a brown. They are comfortable and go with anything. I am a teacher and am on my feet all day - the boots don't give me any problems. Since they are so soft, they naturally conform to the shape of my foot and I didn't have to "break" them in.

Very comfortable and cozy boot to throw on when it's cold outside. Runs a little big, but perfect with warm socks. Love that is washable, though haven't tried yet! It's not particularly stylish so I just wear it under pants; still looking for a cute vegan boot to wear with dresses and skirts.

These are fantastic shoes! They are like socks, but with support. I have very cranky feet (with plantar fascia, bad ankles, etc.), and these shoes make my feet very happy indeed. And the fact that these are non-leather is awesome.

I received these boots this week, and so far I love them. They are very light weight, very comfortable and very plain. Their simplicity when worn with a black pair of slacks is very flattering. They feel like bedroom slippers. I am sure I will be wearing them every other day this winter. That there is no leather in them and that they are washable is a plus. What I really love is Zappos. They are fabulous company!

Arcopedico boots are the most comfortable and supportive. These L8's are super cute. The brown is a really rich mocha, which matches well with anything in brown shades. I wish they came in gray, I would get another pair.

This is my go-to shoe. It's flexibility makes it totally comfortable in the toe box for my hard-to-fit short toes. The arch is high, but that works for me. The shoe description says padded insole (which it isn't) but it's supportive and flexible. The heel cup does something good for my posture. The shoe is very light and it's washable. All in all, for me it's a five star shoe.

This little boot is comfortable and versatile and it works well with jeans, dress pants, or tights and a skirt. I was looking for a waterproof, vegan boot, and I'm delighted with these.

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.

These are the best and most comfortable booties out there. I ordered mine for a trip to Paris. They are made of all vegan materials and only weigh a few OUNCES and fit absolutely true to size for me. I am a true US5 or UK3 or EU35 abandoned these are plenty big enough for socks. The Lytex material is breathable, water resistant (I sprayed them with a waterproof spray just in case), amazingly soft and feminine. I got the black suede and ordered the grey today! Zappos is am amazing retailer and I don't say that lightly. They got the shoes to me in a day! E replaced with your own orthotic if need be.FOR COMPARISON, (I wish that I had seen a comparison between the L9 and the L19 before I ordered them lol.) THE L8 BOOTIE HAS A NARROW SHAFT AND NO RUSHING. THERE IS NO RUSHING ON THE SIDE OF THE L8. THE L19, ON THE OTHER HAND, THE L19 has a RUSHED "LEATHER" SHAFT AND IT IS 1.5 " SHORTER SHAFT. I GOT THE L19 AND THE L8. I AM RETURNING THE L19 and exchanging it for another L8. It seems to me that the L19 runs a bit looser than the L8. I love shoes and these are a practical addition to my minimal wardrobe. I like that they are vegan as I am an environmental scientist and need to walk my talk. Order either one and you will not be sorry. Great arch support as well. Btw, I sent Zappos an email thanking them for their cheerful help and they responded with a PERSONAL, NOT CANNED, EMAIL. FANTASTIC customer service. If you are sitting on the fence with these in mind, don't be afraid to buy either on of these great Arcopedico booties.

These shoes are the best! Due to neuromuscular problems of my legs it is very difficult for me to find shoes that look great and are very comfortable. Sometimes I am stuck wearing athletic shoes to help with walking and balance. However, these shoes are so comfortable I want to buy them in every style. I bought them to wear in San Francisco on vacation. I wore them 2 days in a row with constant walking and loved them! I am so thankful I have found this shoe brand. The foot bed has good cushion and the shoe fits like a glove on my foot. They are worth the price paid and recommend them to anyone who is in need of a nice looking shoe but doesn't want to sacrifice comfort.

I know other people have said this, but truly I have the world's worst feet. I have a huge hammertoe that sticks up and is painful in closed toed shoes - except these boots! It is so exciting to find something that I can actually wear for an extended period of time without being in so much pain.

Hello everyone, these are the most comfortable booties I have ever worn, I have very bad feet but the softness and lightness of these shoes are unbelievable. I have a dropped arch so the support of the arch in these shoes are superb. They protect my feet, very warm you can wear them with jeans, slacks, skirts and dresses. I am very glad I purchased these boots and after the surgery on my feet I will be getting the sandals from Arcopedico. Thank You. I feel my money did not go to waste with these shoes. True to size also. Very light and they're washable (haven't washed them yet) but they feel great. Glad I found Arcopedico shoes.

Brands I'd also recommend: Not sure have not tried to many brands.
