This shoe is pretty comfortable. The arch support is good. It fits my narrow foot ok. The double wide straps give the shoe a clunky look on my feet.

I really wanted to love these Ara sandals. They are very attractive and the support level is fantastic. Unfortunately the straps hit my feet in the wrong places and because they are synthetic and not natural materials I'm not confident that they will break in to the point where they won't cause blisters.

I wear an 8.5 B width shoe and sandal, but many if not most shoes seem to be cut on the wider side. These (size 39) fit beautifully out of the box. The leather is soft and smooth. The soles are attractive. The foot bed is a bit short but my toes do not hang over the edge, and I'm sure a 40 would be too wide. I've been wearing them around the house, and they feel excellent. No rubbing or pinching or slapping. They are expensive, but sandals that hurt are the worst! I've got a closet full of them. These can be worn with skirts, pants, or nice shorts. I think they are just right for me!

Run very big. Even the suggested size was a half size too big. After finally finding the right size, I have an extremely comfortable pair of shoes for work. I spend my days running from client to client in the city.

I first discovered Ara shoes while on vacation in Canada. Their comfort is unmatched. I now have Ara loafers, boots, pumps, high tops, sneakers & sandals. Did I mention the great style & quality. My go-to footwear.

Zappos suggested size 6-6.5 but it was too small, am a 6.5. Ordered a 7 and hoping for the best.

These are gorgeous shoes! Soft and buttery leather! The other reviews had said that they were too large....I disagree, I ordered 1/2 size smaller to allow for the large size that was stated. They were too small for me so I'm back to ordering my usual size of shoe! I sold my order to a dear friend that said thanks for shopping for here again!! No return here!

It's a beautiful leather pump and was just what I was looking for; unfortunately, the shoe is extremely narrow and I could not wear the shoe. If I could get it in a wide fitting I would buy it again.

Bought these for my 20's daughters in sizes 8 1/2 and 9, M width. My younger daughter has a narrow foot and said her foot slips out slightly in the back, but both women love the shoes so much that they're keeping them and my younger daughter will use an insert to close up the small gap in the back.

I wear a 7.5 shoe. I ordered the 5. It was too big, so I sent it back and ordered a 4.5... Still to big! I really like the shoe, and will try a 4. I have NEVER had to do this before. I will update when the size 4 arrives.

surprisingly comfortable pumps, stylish enough for work, squeaked a little at first but stopped after wearing them around the housefor a few minutes.

Perfect flat for walking with the padded sole. I wear them often when I will be doing casual walking and don't want a bulky shoe. Have warn them for years.

Bought these to replace the exact same boot that I have had for many years. The original boots still look great but the inside sole has just worn down due to years of wear and no longer felt comfortable when worn all day. Deloghted that I could get a replacement. Felt great right out of the box. I am sure they will last for a long time.

I had to return due to the sizing issue only. They were way to large for my size 8 foot. If ordering again, I'd go at least a half size smaller.

These shoes are way overpriced. They are cheaply constructed and felt awful, cutting into my feet, from the moment I slipped them on. I was surprised when I double checked the price.

The fit seemed smaller than the 8M I ordered. I never did get my foot in one of them, so I can't determine whether or not the width or length was not true to size. Leather uppers were very stiff. Style is just ok. They're plain without much styling.

These shoes are truly remarkable. They are really stylish, in a rather understated way. They are also very flattering and amazingly comfortable! I have trouble with a lot of shoes that tend to have smaller toe boxes. This shoe doesn't bother my wanna-be-bunion one bit! What was even more amazing is that I put them on when they arrived and promptly walked out the door for an all-day meeting. They were still comfortable when I got home at 9pm. That says a lot for any shoe, but especially one that is as attractive as this. Great arch support and nice leather lining. AAAA++++

I had never tried ara shoes before but liked the design...simple but classic. I have a difficult time finding shoes that fit due to a bunion on one foot. These fit beautifully with plenty of space in the toe box to accommodate the extra room I needed but snug enough in the rest of the shoe to keep my heels from slipping. And the cushioning in the sole is extremely comfortable. I ordered two other similar styles at the same time but the look and feel of the ara Gabrielle sold me immediately.
