Wonderful shoes, although they are very narrow. I ordered wide width, which is normally comfortable for me; however, the wide width in these shoes was still narrow. The insoles are great! Wish the width had worked for me.

I really wanted to like these shoes and expected them to be super comfortable. But no; all I can say is that they felt weird on my feet. Hope others like them better.

These shoes are incredible. I have so many things wrong with my feet - neuropathy, bad arches, you name it. So when these shoes were delivered to me today, I tried them on, hoping against hope that they would fit -- and they feel so good, I don't want to take them off! I bought these for my go-to fall and winter shoe, and I can't wait for the weather to turn cool so I can wear them. Aetrex is a great brand for good quality and support. The arch support is so good that I won't have to wear my orthotics. They're a little pricey for me, but they're worth every penny!

I always wear a size 8M in shoes. After buying the Aetrex Lori and thinking they are the most comfortable sandals I've ever worn, I decided to try the Aetrex Berries Bungee Oxford. I bought them for a trip to Italy that I will be taking. NO go; I will be returning them. They are quite narrow in the forefoot and rub my large toe. I might try the Wide width, because they are a very lightweight, supportive, comfortable shoe, and a slight bit on the rigid side. I just don't believe in "breaking in," shoes at all. They have to feel 100% great right out of the box.

Great shoes. Comfy. Nicer than sneakers, but with all of the comfort of sneakers.

Trial and error pays off! I've ordered quite a few pairs of shoes from Zappos and have found the shoe for me. I have two other pairs of Aetrex in the Mary Jane style. I wanted something equally as comfortable but more for informal wear, walking, hiking, etc. The Aetrex Berries Bungee is the perfect shoe! It has a lot of style, fits like it's custom-made for me and is like walking on air. I have flat feet, hammertoes and bunions, need I say more about how hard it is to find a comfortable pair of shoes for all-day wear? The shoes have excellent arch support, snug up using the bungee concept and the microfiber stretches where the bunions are and doesn't compress them. I volunteer at a local hospital and these are now my "go-to" shoes for all day wear. Like Dr. Seuss might say, "I can wear them here, I can wear them there, I can wear them anywhere!"

I love these shoes! I have not had a pair of shoes this comfortable in years. I can wear them all day and they stay comfortable with great support. I have fallen arches and other issues with my feet, and it is truly hard to find shoes this good.

I love these shoes. They are comfortable, accommodate my orthotics, and look great. My reason for only 4 stars is the excess bungee sticks straight up in the air.

If you like a very snug shoe, buy these! I wear and ordered a 7-1/2 wide. The photo above is an optical illusion! There is absolutely NOTHING WIDE about this shoe. If you have a high instep or "the top of your foot is highly sensitive", you will not like these. Very stiff, well constructed shoe, excellent quality, gut for narrow flat feet ONLY!!

Brands I'd also recommend: Currently searching... Timberland, Dansko and Orthoheel were the best for me!

I love these shoes. I have uncomfortable feet! and the only shoes that I have been wearing are sneakers. These are just what I needed. I can put my custom orthotic inside if I want, but their insole and arch is quite comfortable for me.

I got these shoes in black for a trip to New York. I have to wear comfortable shoes that don't look too much like athletic shoes since I go to the theater and nice restaurants. The shoes were so comfortable that I even wore them in the Macy's parade for my stint as a clown. We had to jog to keep up but the shoes felt great! They can also be stretched to accommodate thicker socks.

This is the first time I've ever written a negative review about a product from Zappos. The shoes are much more attractive in the picture than they are actually. I thought, from the picture, they would be more streamlined than they are, but they are, for lack of a better term, clunky. They're pretty comfortable and I bought them a couple of months after foot surgery and they fulfilled that purpose.

After much searching for a comfortable and attractive support shoe, I finally chose the Aetrex Berries Bungee Oxford. I need a wide width with a roomy toe box, due to bunions and arthritis. The bungee tie expands when I have swelling later in the day. The shoe is very lightweight, and was comfortable from the first day, after wearing them for over 8 hours.

I love this shoe! I bought these a year ago in August and wore them walking all over NYC over Labor Day weekend. In fact, every time I go to NY I wear these. (Also, wore them to San Diego - perfect for the long plane trip, too.) They work great for summer, spring and fall - not the dead of winter or heavy rain. They are incredibly comfortable,lightweight, really supportive and I can walk forever in them. They breathe, they stretch, the bungee cord lace is easy to deal with (easy on and off so great for plane trips, too). No break in time was needed. They are true to size. They are a simple, casual style and I have them in black and this summer found them in a "cappuccino" color with orange bungee laces. The blueberry is very tempting. Definitely makes me want to buy more Aetrex shoes. Maybe something for the winter....

Bought this as a work shoe after suffering from a complete ACL replacement and meniscus repair. Very comfortable, alleviates pain from my plantars fascitis, and has decent arch support. I do wear an additional insole due to my knee repair, but overall well worth the money.

I thought this shoe was too light and flimsy feeling. The arch support is supposed to be good and this brand was recommended by my podiatrist but I just didn't see it or feel it. I could have worn with my orthotics but felt the sole was also without any traction and that it wasn't supportive or cushioned enough on the bottom.

I have these shoes, I bought them as I have neuropathy in my feet, these shoes are helpful. They do not solve the whole problem and probably won't but for the most part my feet feel better when wearing them. They are very comfortable, much more than many shoes I've tried. My foot doctor has recommended this brand to wear when I don't wear my inserts that are custom made for support and comfort.

I was excited at first, but I need a 9 instead of a 8.5 but currently the only option is for a 9.5. The area under the ball of the foot seems too thin. Everywhere else there is good thickness. I like the style and bungee cord shoe lace. Cute shoe.

After years of tennis at the collegiate level osteoarthritis continues to plague my left great toe joint. It makes it virtually impossible to find comfort in a shoe. I just grin and bear it when I go to work every day, but not anymore. I think I may have just found a line of shoes that has potential. I spent a week walking the streets of Ireland and never had to come back and take Ibuprofen as a result of foot pain. Thrilled with these and they do have a decent amount of arch for my very high arches. I'm hoping I can find some decent dress shoes that will keep my feet as comfy during the day as they are in the evening.

I love these shoes! I have chronic foot problems and have had surgery. I also have orthotics, but I'm not crazy about them. These shoes fit great! They are comfy and true to size and width. Best of all, the arch support in the shoe works better than my custom orthotics.
