Got these for my 95 yr old mother. Fit, style and comfort all good. Quality also.

Comfortable right out of the box! Not the sexiest but great for work with both pants and dresses.

Nice shoes. Would keep them but there is no buckle on the heel strap for adjustments.

The toe box was too shallow and felt like it pushed down on the big toe nail. Very uncomfortable for that reason.

I love these shoes. I have a pair in black which are from about 2 years ago, I recently purchased a pair in mocha/brown Please, I would like a pair in Navy blue. Do you make them in Navy Blue? Please let me know.

These did not work for me. My heel slipped out of the show when I started walking as I do have a narrow heel. Also, they were so so so stiff. They felt like a cheap pair of shoes not made for comfort. I would expect more for this brand at this price point. Thank goodness Zappos has such easy returns.

Loved the shoes, they were very pretty. Needed to return, the strap across the top was cutting into my foot.

Fit and size were OK, the shoe seemed like something that my grandmother would wear, rather matronly looking. Not my style after all.

I wear 41 in Dansko Professional. 42 in Naot, Dansko sandals, 11 in Earth sandals. I had to order three times to finally end up at 43 to fit in the ARA Bailey. LOVED the Blue. Heartbroken to in the end to return because the toe strap isn't adjustable, and was too loose.

Cute Cute Cute. Got the blue to start with. Sparkly, without being "too much". Soft to the touch. Supportive. Will probably order the blush tomorrow. Cute Cute.

This is my second pair of these shoes. They have worn very well, and are comfortable. My feet are starting to have bunions, and these are a good choice and also look good.

Looking down at shoe, it's too oval for my taste. Fit-wise, it's 'gappy' on top of ball of foot. Also, a bit tight on big toe. But I have arthritic toes ... Hope this works for you!

First shoe I bought from Zappos and was pleased. Shoe fits, is comfortable and great for work, where I do a lot of walking. New to this brand but will consider it in the future!

I've been buying these shoes for years because of the hand-made quality, fit and good look. Right out of the box I could tell that things have changed. The leather inner liner is now some man-made fabric and the soles are different. I've always worn a size US 8/ Euro 5.5 and they always fit perfectly, but these are big and wide and do not have any contour. These feel like $29 shoes from Payless. They are going back (thank you Zappos for the return policy) and I am mourning the loss of my favorite, go-to shoes.

The boots felt very soft, held my heel very well but were a bit narrow at the ball of the foot. The sole felt firm but not cushiony enough. The workmanship seemed excellent. FYI, I am in my 70s, have skinny feet with a high arch and instep, narrow heel and wide forefoot. I am sorry that I will be returning these but I fear the slightly tight forefoot could re-trigger a Morton’s neuroma.

The nine is just a tad too small and the 9 1/2 a tad too big, but I would definitely keep them. They are stylish and comfortable, but the suede looked old when the shoes came in and I've only worn them around the house for a few hours and the shoes look like I've had them for 6 months. i have seen this problem in other suede shoes and don't know what to do about it. I'd like to keep them, but they don't look new...and will no doubt look OLD very soon. I know ARCHE has found a way for suede to look good for years, but Arch is so soft they no longer flatter my old feet.

This is the cutest shoe!! I love love love it. But it was just a little too narrow. And they don't offer it in wide. Sadly, I will be returning this pair of shoes.
