All about Arche

Arche shoes are made exclusively in France by a team of craft artisans devoted to bringing you the quality you deserve. Arche brings you a rich and inviting color palette gathered from the latest fashion trends. After much research into contours and shapes, Arche has devised shoes, boots, and sandals that will provide you with hours and hours of comfort and well being. Modern, simple, and durable, a timeless classic that has made Arche a "trademark" of great style. Arche brings you the best in supple European leathers and the softest nubucks. Arche´s unique care with the traditional tannery process allows these leathers to maintain their authentic look and feel.

Arche was established in Paris in 1968 by Pierre Robert Helaine with the philosophy: “If you can´t think, walk. If you are thinking too much, walk. If you are thinking bad thoughts, keep walking.”

Paris is where fashion begins and where all Arche products are designed. As a result, these Arche shoes, boots, and sandals easily accessorize and relate to the most current ready to wear, outerwear, and swimwear trends.

Arche begins with the belief that black and brown do not go with everything. Every Arche collection of shoes, boots, and sandals are then offered in a myriad of coloration that correspond exactly to fashion enabling our customer to always look her best.

All Arche shoes, boots, and sandals feature 100% natural latex cushioning for maximum durability, flexibility, and unrelenting shock absorption. Supple water and scratch-resistant nubuck leather repels the elements while creating a cozy and breathable home for the foot. All Arche shoes, boots, and sandals provide instant comfort that will create a bounce in each step.

For 40 years, Arche has been assembling its shoes, boots, and sandals in the Chateau Region of France, not far from Paris. Every pair of Arche shoes are handcrafted to perfection with the goal of providing the absolute best product possible.

I bought the white ones first and loved them so much that I got the black ones too. For some reason they were a tad to snug so I reordered and the second pair were perfect! I wear a 8 1/2 or nine in other brands, in Arche a size 39 is perfect for me. Arche has become my favorite brand of shoe! Quality materials, great style and the most comfortable shoes ever! I just ordered the Antico/Blush color too.

This is a lovely shoe but unfortunately too narrow for my feet. As always, well crafted and designed. Sadly it doesn’t look good or feel right on my feet.

Unusual for me but this sandal was too wide while the footbed was too short. My foot slid off the front of the sandal right out of the box. I love the style and Arche sandals but this did not work for me. My search continues...

The fit is about equal to US sizes, both in width and in length. I wear 8.5 in US sizes, medium width -- In Arche shoes, the size 39 fits perfectly in sandal and Bibiki boot styles. In flats, I find they run very narrow and short - - I've settled on size 40 for these, although for me, the style is problematic for one foot. It's not the fault of the shoe, however. I ordered the Satia in black nubuck and find it very comfortable. The sandal grips the foot so that there's no sliding around in the shoe. The heel height is great for me, higher than the Arche flats and the Bibiki boots. It's a comfortable height to wear for hours. My two slightly negative comments are: 1. It takes a little time to put the shoe on with all the elastic -- can't just slide into the sandal. 2. The black nubuck dye rubs off onto the foot, kind of a problem, but not big enough to dissuade me from keeping the sandals. One of Arche's most comfortable styles!

Wow, these are amazing. Comfortable right out of the box, and the bronze color is classy but understated. It goes with everything. I hope they last a long time, and it seems like these shoes are made extremely well.

Lovely shoe, but I've had surgery on one foot and the foot bed is too narrow for comfort, while the heel is too loose. Sorry to have to send back.

These are my third pair of this style Arche sandal purchased this summer. Have black, mustard suede and now these. As a 60+ former athlete, these are my go to shoes for walking about site seeing or shopping. With my AA foot and narrow heal, love the adjustable strap and top of shoe holds narrow foot in place. Usually wear 71/2 but the 7 or Arche 38 fits perfect. If you have wider foot -go for next size. These have better arch support than my newer Nike knit running /walking shoes.

As another reviewer noted, the velcro on the heel strap ruins this shoe. It looks cheap and clunky. For the price of this sandal, a well-made strap and buckle seems appropriate!

My usual size is 81/2 or 9. The 39 is perfect. My feet have about every unattractive problem possible, bunions, hammertoes, narrow heels and a wide forefront due to the bunions. These are so comfortable and the cutout pattern seems to disguise my foot problems. They feel stable when walking and are easy to put on due to the zippers. I love them so much I may order in another color!

This my third pair of Lilly from Arche and in spite of being marked as a 41 on the sole they are constantly slipping on my foot. I should have worn them more when I first got them (have only worn 6 times) and I would have sent them back. Now I fear it is too late.

I LOVE Arche' shoes. Various styles fit differently. I feel like some styles are too slim and narrow for my foot. So I can't always just buy any Arche' shoe. I have been wearing this style for several years so I knew this one would fit. Wear them every day, like walking bare foot. I work with Alzheimers patients and they have sensitivity to discomfort. Have recommended these shoes to numerous people. Everyone has always loved them. Be careful though, once you wear a Arche' shoe, you won't be able to wear another shoe... nothing compares. And, if you're a fashionista they go with everything.

Beautiful leather--soft. supple and very comfortable. I purchased the bronze in 41. The problem is aesthetics: the leather in the forefoot comes up too high and unless you have perfect, thin ankles (which at 65, I don't--I've got some puffiness) the cut of the sandal makes you ankles look even wider than they are. Too bad, I really wanted to make this work because It was so comfortable. But at this price point.... nope--they need to be perfect.

These were my go to shoes all winter when boots weren't needed. I have bunions and hammertoes, so finding shoes that are cute and comfortable is a challenge. These conform to all the bumps and the the suede texture makes them not so noticeable. They are cute with leggings or pants, and got me many compliments. A light wipe with a damp cloth and they look like new.
