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.

Boot is true to size with a sock. Which is fine for me. The leather is incredibly soft, nice little shoe.

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.

I recently had ankle/foot surgery and needed a comfortable flat to wear as I transition from my walking boot. I went up a half-size so I wouldn’t need to squeeze into them with my still slightly swollen foot. These will fit the bill! They are beautiful, well constructed and comfortable.

These are so disappointing. It’s not even good leather if it’s leather at all. When you rub the toe of the outside it bubbles up like it’s going to tear. The boot is lined with faux fir if yoy like that for cooler weather. Would not recommend these to anyone.

I've just bought my second pair of these boots. The first pair lasted seven years. They are the most comfortable boots I've ever had. They are warm, but not bulky, and look good with both pants and skirts.

I have to say felt true to size because there is not a category for "roomy." They are not TOOO big, but they are roomier than other 9 and a halfs. I could probably fit into the 9s but these do stay on my feet (which is a big deal because many shoes that are comfortable in the front of my foot are too big in the heel. In this case, without any pinch, they stay on my heel) . and I was in them for a whole day (trying them out around the house) and they were very comfy.

Really like these, however, difficult to see that they are blue unless you hold them next to black. Very dark dark blue.

The sizing was good,left shoe felt a bit snug, but my left foot is somewhat larger than my right foot. This is a beautiful shoe and i am very pleased with this selection as I was looking for a dressy low heel shoe.

Shoes fit and look great. Size bought was 11.5; I usually wear an 11, but sometimes need larger. Love the square toe style. Comfort is good, except I find the ball section of the sole to be somewhat hard (not enough cushioning). Still, will keep them. Great price. Quick confirmation and shipping.

This shoe is really cute, but I wear a size 7 and this pair had to be at least a 9 (even though the shoe says its a 7). I could easily fit two fingers between my heel and the back of the shoe. I think this pair must be mis-marked, so I am returning them to Zappos. Since the shoes did not come in a box, I'm guessing I'm not the first person to have discovered this problem. Hopefully, Zappos does not keep sending this pair of shoes out to customers wanting a size 7.

Only Zappos knows how many dozens of boots I ordered before finally finding this perfect pair. I was on a quest for a low-heel, comfortable, stylish walking boot that looked decent with my stick legs. They will be the shoes I take to Italy.

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.
