I'm not sure if I was sent a mislabled box as the size on the outside said both 8 and 10, and these shoes were huge on my feet. I usually wear between a 7.5 and an 8 and went for an 8 because of the comment on the 7.5 toe box being tight. It was a shame because it was otherwise a really nice looking shoe with great padding. I may order another pair in the 7.5 as the SOFT shoes that I kept instead have been making a very odd noise when I walk.

I had to send the first pair back to order a half size smaller. I am between a 9 and a 9.5. The toebox is sufficiently wide and is not cut too low. The shoes are attractive and appear to be well made. I haven't actually worn them out yet but just trying them on they feel comfortable. Expensive but I could not find a dressy black flat that fit the bill.

This shoe looks a lot more sleek and stylish in person. Classic black pump. Lovely supple leather, as can be expected from an ara shoe. I am a 7.5M, and the 5 (7.5 US) size fit perfectly.

These are simple, sleek and attractive. The run a bit tight from toe to calf, so they are best for average sized or slim feet/calves. I wore them all day in the city. Very comfortable.

I love the style of those shoes and they looked well made. However, for a size 10.5, I felt they were too narrow for me. I regret to have to send them back. I would love to have them in wide but they sadly do not combine the width.

I wanted to love these shoes, but the styling was just a bit off for me. The front of the shoe curled up just a bit and didn't sit flat to the floor which I thought strange. Also did not seem like something I could wear without socks.

I wear an 11.5 narrow and found the fit to be spot on - perhaps even a bit snug out of the box. After wearing the boots around the house for an hour or so, my felt settled in comfortably. The support is above average and the boot is, overall, quite comfortable. I haven’t had a chance to wear them out and about just yet, thus my four, instead of five, star rating.

It’s very comfortable. I have tried on in store and this style runs 1/2 size bigger. I usually wear 7 1/2 but ordered 7 and fits perfect.

I was really surprised to find that these boots had a yummy furry lining! They're really comfortable and sturdy to walk in on wet streets, etc. They look great with either jeans or skirts and fit my usual size really well.

The size felt slightly larger than expected, so works well with socks. Very comfortable straight out of the box. I have a bunion that really hurts if shoes are too tight or there isn’t enough padding on the foot bed but they’re super happy. I was prepared to buy an insole based on other reviews about padding but they feel very comfortable without ! Looks great too.

This is a really nice looking shoe for travel and it looks comfortable but, my narrow foot with a narrow heel doesn't work. It is probably perfect for a true Medium size. I am able to wear the brands lace up shoes very well and love the comfort.

These shoes are so snappy and cute. But I wear a 5 and they were too big. Would love to try them in a smaller size, but they don’t come smaller. Back to Zappos they go.

These shoes were "wear out of the box"! Plenty of toe space and the cut went above my bunion. Love them!

A good looking boot, not bulky looking but, could have used more padding under the ball of the foot. I will take the boots to a good shoe repair to add some good padding. I have a narrow, high arch foot so I have many problems getting shoes. I have not worn them yet but, look forward to going to snow country to use them.

Very nice looking (slimming) and comfortable boot. However,the shaft isn’t as high as it appears in the photos, and for me, the circumference of the opening is too large (12”+- to my 9”) where it hits just a few inches above my ankle. There is no video to see how it looks on a person. If this style was made with a longer shaft (to mid calf or just below), it would be perfect. My shoe size is 9B, and the size 10 was great. Way too expensive not to be 100% satisfied. Going back.

Love these boots! They are cozy, warm, and totally waterproof - can’t ask for more! I sized up a half size and can wear them with a thin wool sock. You may want to go up a full size if you plan on a heavier sock. They are a bit narrow but have some give and fit over my ridiculously high instep. They are casual boots due to the white sole, and look great with jeans and leggings. Highly recommend!!

Loved this shoe. The ONLY problem was that the sole at the ball of your feet I felt was very thin. If this is to be a cold weather shoe you need some thickness there especially if you're walking over any snow. Maybe it's just meant for rain being waterproof. Great style and comfort though.
