Wonderful shoe. Great leather, insole, support and very comfortable. These really do come in truly wide widths including TRUE XW. I have had a terrible time finding comfortable shoes to fit my flat feet with a bunion on left (and one on the right if I don't start wearing proper wide enough supportive footwear and/or insoles in them). You do not need to order up a size. The 7.5XW instead of the 8XW fit me. I have found that many wide shoes are not truly wide enough for me. Do not hesitate to try Aravon! They are made by New Balance. I'm trying those now too.

I tied the 9.5 first because that's my normal size but the heel area was gaping and sloppy. Next I ordered the 9 and these were a bit too short as my toe slides forward and hits the end of the shoe. Weirdly made.

These shoes are great work shoes. I was fitted for them at a specialty shop (got arthritis in my feet after pregnancy) and bought them there in the wine color. Then I got them in black from Zappos. I love them!

I haven't worn them much yet, but they were surprisingly comfortable right out of the box and I can't wait to wear them more!

This is an update to my review from January 2013 - These are the most comfortable shoes i have ever worn in my life, BUT the elastic on the straps gave out way too fast. The strap on my left shoe broke this morning and the other shoe is going soon. I would have thought for the money they would have lasted longer.

Zappos was great for my order (5 stars for this)! The shipping was very fast, and of course free :) The shoes, they're OK, I do not suggest purchasing Aravon shoes that have black insoles, as the bottoms of your feet will be covered in black and it is hard to get off with warm water and soap (2 stars). The style of the shoe is OK, I wear them about 3x a week to work, and they feel pretty comfortable. I typically wear a 7.5-8.5 in shoes, depending on the brand (I wear a size 9 in New Balance Running shoes, which, if you are a runner you will know that it is suggested to purchase 1/2-1full size larger than your normal shoe size). In the past I was fitted to wear the size 8.5 AA(width) in Aravon's. They stretched about 1/2 size larger than what I needed, and they seemed about 1/2 size too big in width before they stretched. The Maura 7.0 AA(width), that I recently purchased, is a bit snug in length and width, but I assume they will stretch a bit, as well. I tried the 7.5 AA (width) in the same shoe style but I felt that they would've been a little too large after they stretched out from normal wear.

These are like the Maya, only with a t-strap. Felt about a half-size big. cute. I think I can wear them with skirts. Kind of borderline for that.

These are stylish and comfortable - dress up or wear with jeans. The size is spot on - which is not what I expected based on other reviews. My 10Medium was just that. Even with the cutaway sides the support is super. The shoe is a bit stiff - feels like there's a steel shank running through the length. Comfortable for walking - I don't think they'd be good for all day standing.

I like "normal" looking shoes with a bit of a heel for running around the city, rather than athletics. It's hard to find a pair that fits. Took these out for a fairly long walk (couple miles) my first day, and came home smiling! I wouldn't hesitate wear them for dress occasions. I wish they came in more colors, perhaps a nude, or taupe.

Love it! So excited to finally find a feminine dress shoe that fits my wide feet. It was truly a EE. Other shoes say they are, but are often not wide enough for me. I was on my feet in the office all day today and my feet felt wonderful and well supported. They are made well, give wonderful support, look great, and don't hurt my feet at all. I highly recommend these, they go well with slack pants, jeans or a dress/skirt.

These shoes are very attractive and comfortable. I needed something that I could do a lot of walking in while wearing a professional pantsuit, and these are perfect. Would also look great with jeans. They do run large, something I seldom have had a problem with since I have a 10W foot. Tightening the buckle strap helped, but I wish I had not worn them outside and sent back for a smaller size.

So, I've been wearing mine for nearly a year now, rotating with the Maya style, and I have a couple of things to report. Super comfortable, easy to wear all day, tons of room for my toes and moderately wide foot (I'm a pretty diehard bare-footer outside of the office). Style is fine, not exactly sexy with a sheath dress, but cover all the bases for business wardrobe (i.e. I can walk in them and they have covered heel and toe). The bad - the elastic thingy at the buckle stretched out in no time, I keep waiting for it to snap. I went from about the third hole on the strap to the very last hole. I'm going to try a shoe repair shop before I replace the shoe, though. Also, the leather foot bed has curled up in the heel area and makes an uncomfortable lump just at the back. This is an issue with the Maya as well. The included insole maybe would have solved the issue but it made the shoes a bit tight for me.

I love these shoes. My orthotics fit in them to make these 12 narrow shoes fit my 11 and 1/2 narrow feet. I also love Zappos. They provide excellent service that goes beyond that of any other company I've ever known.

These shoes are so comfortable! I'm a flight attendant and am sometimes on my feet 14-15 hours a day. By the end of the day my feet swell but these shoes are still comfortable. I ordered the wide so there's plenty of room in the toe box. I would definitely recommend these shoes to anyone who wants comfort and also a great looking shoe. They look great with a dress or pants.

Adorable! I have wide feet and plantar fasciitis and I'm on my feet most of the day. Shoe shopping is like my part-time job. These were unexpectedly comfortable and cute. So much nicer in person than in the picture. I felt kind of 40s or a little bit pin-up while wearing them. I was worried they would look too orthopedic or geriatric. I like to look stylish at work but my shoes never live up to my outfits. I wore them with skinny khaki ankle pants and sheer ivory patterned knee highs. (Also a green cardigan, navy and white knit top, and a chunky gold link bracelet.) Next, I plan to pair them with my red skinny ankle pants. I'm feeling very 'Mid-century Nautical' this spring. I think they might also work with a skater skirt or a pencil skirt. By the way...the ability to adjust the ankle strap really accommodates the skinny heel that many women with a wide forefoot have trouble with.

These are very well made and quite cute. I felt they ran a touch big but they come with thin inserts that can be placed under the removable foot bed and the ankle strap is adjustable. That combination got me the fit I wanted. I don't know if I would have paid the full price for them but definitely a value at the sale price.

I love my new Aravon Maura shoes; they are very comfortable and stylish at the same time. I initially ordered them in size 8 (my usual) but they ran large so I exchanged them for a 7.5. The shipping service was so fast and it was easy to do the exchange as well.

Very comfortable and cute shoe! I was pleasantly surprised by the mesh upper on the inside of the toe area - very breathable. Roomy toe, decent arch support. Looks great with pants, capris, skirts.

I have arthritis and my feet become very sore and swollen. I needed shoes for work that would be comfortable all day. This was definitely the solution. I took a second pair the first day that I wore them, but I never needed to change. I forgot that I had new shoes on! I will definitely buy more of this brand.

Great shoe for dancing on a wood dance floor and for walking anywhere. It makes the perfect transition, especially if you don't want to carry a bag with your dance shoes. They are supportive, cute and comfortable. I wish they came in a beige, creme, tan red or a metallic color. Who knows, maybe they will soon!
