I love the look of these shoes, I have the Maha Breath and I love them. But I am sad that these shoes have a ridge on the inside where they are stitched together that rubs and makes them really uncomfortable. I am returning them.

I was so excited for these shoes to come in the mail. I am going on a trip to Europe and thought they would be perfect for roaming the streets of Paris in something other than tennis shoes. Boy was I wrong. The heel was the first major flaw I noticed. The edge almost curves in as if it were designed to rub a blister in that spot. Just walking around my carpeted office was painful. Also, as others pointed out, the area where the leathers of the front and back parts of the shoe come together are not smoothed or covered and that too was uncomfortable. All around disappointment. I have no prior experience with Patagonia shoes, but I do love the clothing and had high hopes that were dashed in a matter of minutes. They also look weird on. I cannot explain it, but they are dorky to the Crocs level.

These shoes are casual, cute, and comfortable. I love them with jeans and my denim skirts. This is the second pair of Mahas I have purchased, the other pair being more suited for summer.

These are not high enough on the sides. The style is cute, but they are small in length and snug in width. If you are between sizes order up in both length and width.

I love my Maha Smooth shoes. They are very comfortable. I was surprised that I had to go to a 7 when my normal size is 7.5 to an 8.

These take a little bit of breaking in -- they're a little snug around the side seam and the back digs into my ankles. Also, I have skinny feet so I had to go a half-size down. But otherwise, I'm pretty satisfied. It's a good-looking shoe, relatively comfortable, and made by a great company.

Nice rich brown color - both leather and suede. Slight rough area inside where leathers are sewn together. Plenty of room inside toe box. Stylish and comfortable.

I love all things Patagonia and I am willing to spend some money because of the consistent quality of their products. These are very cute shoes, with high quality leather grippy, comfortable sole meaning that i have no worries about slipping or stepping on something (which is a concern with some flats). The purple/brown color combination works really well as it is subtle and would go well with a lot of outfits. These shoes are durable and would last a long time. Even though both shoes were a size 7, the Right shoe was significantly narrower than the left, they provide very little arch support, but there is a removable insole that I would probably switch out. So I am going to exchange these for another pair and see if I still have a problem with the width factor of the right shoe. Thankfully, Zappos makes this a painless process.

These seemed a little stiff on the sides and they dug into my feet a little bit. No arch support either.

Super-cute. No arch support or cushioning in the insole.

Brands I'd also recommend: Privo and Merrell and my first choices for cute footware like this, because they are stylish AND comfortable (I could walk and have walked in them all day).

Not very stylish. Makes your foot look wide, and indeed they feel wide too, and I don't have narrow foot. Almost okay, but not quite.

I wished I had listened to the reviewer that noted how the shoe dug into her foot where the leather overlaps on the side. It may not be the case in all of these, but it definitely was for me. Extreme pain at that point. I have to return it. There's no way I could walk in these for any extended time. It just digs in on that one point. Sorry to have to return it since they look so cute.

Nice shoes, light and wearable. They feel like sport shoes, while still looking dressy. A bit narrow, but they do stretch a bit.

Fit right out of the box and didn't even give my heels blisters, which was useful since I wore then for ten hours the next day! Doesn't really have arch support but doesn't bother my high arches, thank goodness. Great colour and I trust the company to have the shoe last for ages. Great shoe!

Can I say that the Patagonia Maha/ Maha Smooth are the best shoes I've ever owned? I've worn these shoes almost every day since I got my first pair in 2010 or 2009. They look great (not sportsy or outdoorsy) and i wear them to work or with jeans, and they always look stylish. They're comfortable, and great for walking- they're fairly flat, but I can walk miles and miles in these without any discomfort. Best flat i've ever bought. My only complaint is that they wear out fairly quickly (although I guess that since I wear these shoes 3-5 times per week, every week, it's to be expected) I've probably bought 5 pairs of Maha's and Maha smooths combined in the past 3-4 years and unfortunately, they don't come cheap. I've worn every pair down until they have holes in a year or less!

I love these shoes! I have worn Patagonia Mahas/ Maha Smooths as often as possible for the past few years. They are comfortable and easy to walk in; even for long distances, and my feet do not get sore, which sometimes happens in flats. I wear a pair of regular Mahas in the summer and the Maha Smooths when it is cooler. They look nice enough to wear to my business casual office, and I also wear them with jeans. I probably wear these shoes five days a week. The biggest issue I have with these shoes is that they are rather expensive and they wear out quicker than I would like. I have had my current pair of Maha Smooth shoes for less than a year, and I have worn down the sole so much that there are holes. I should have replaced these three months ago, but they are too expensive to buy more than a pair a year! I have always been one of those people that wears through shoes quickly, but these wear out quicker than I expect.

These shoes are SUPER cute and comfortable. I've worn them everywhere from everyday walking to a wedding. I do a lot of walking, and these are really great for that. However, I did experience some back-of-the-heel blisters the last time I wore them. I think I'm going to get some padding for the backs, which I've done on other shoes, and it'll be perfect.

This shoe is very cute but very uncomfortable even now after about 2 weeks of intermittent wear. It has a seam that hits right at the widest part of my foot that rubs. So far it has not stretched out. They are wearable not certainly are not the comfy every day brown flat I was hoping for.

These are lovely, well-made shoes. I haven't worn them out yet, but they seem stiff in the front end and will need some breaking in. I can also see how the stitches could be a problem, as another reviewer mentioned. Hopefully, with some breaking in, they will become more comfortable.

I want to love this shoe, but after wearing for two days, the lining is pulling in a strange way and the exterior of the shoe is developing strange folds. For the price of this shoe, to have it looking worn so quickly is really not okay. Design and leather quality is wonderful - but something is a little off with the overall mechanics of this shoe.

These are very cute, but they were not comfortable. The seam where the two pieces of leather meet is right where the toes/metatarsals meet and it's extremely uncomfortable. I could only manage to wear them twice, so I'm not sure if they break in over time.

I have the Maha Breathe in brown and black and have worn them extensively for the past 4 months and have loved them for travel and sightseeing. I found them so comfortable that I thought the Maha Smooth would be great for the cooler months ahead. Although stylish, nicely padded and comfortable in length for me, I found the width of the Smooth to be wider than the Breathe, enough so that I had to return them. Disappointed!

The Maha Breathe was one of my very favorite shoes ever so I bought the Maha Smooth thinking it will be great for the fall. I could not even wear them. Too tight, too short, top of shoe digs into foot. Really cute but not good.
