I really like these shoes. I ordered a US size 6. Technically it should have been a 36. 36's in other shoes fit me. A 37 was sent as a size conversion to the US6. I mention this because I would have ordered a 36 if they were available. 37's do not fit me. I am a true 6 or 36. I wish they were available here in my size. The quality was beautiful. The materials were SO soft! There was no seam on the front of the shoe which felt comfortable. The shoe was definitely not my size because my heal was rubbing even with a sock on. I'd recommend these shoes if you know your correct size.

Beautiful fit for my narrow foot. Probably the most comfortable, supple boots I have ever worn. I’ve had mine for years. They do scuff easily, so be warned, but if comfort is your thing, these could be for you.

I love this brand, I first found them in Paris back in 1983 and bought two pairs of similar boots and a bag. This is the only brand I've ever found that feels bespoke. There is no "break-in" time and they feel like gloves for your feet, the leather is so supple. I do have two quibbles: 1) the fact that once the soles are worn down you cannot have them resoled, and 2) they are trop cher. Any Arche purchase is an investment and not something to be taken lightly. That said I have never loved a brand of shoes more! This style is no exception, from the second I put them on, they felt so familiar and my feet thanked me.

Considering the reputation Arche has for being comfort shoes, and shoes that 'smart people' wear, I am extremely disappoiinted in the supposed 'quality' of these. Sure, the appearance of this boot is pretty cool. I love the somewhat unusual shape at the toe. And yes, the leather is very soft and supple. But that's where it ends. There is ZERO 'form' to this shoe. It's as if they simply took a piece of leather...cut it into a shape...added a zipper to join the two cut ends...and then simply glued it on top of a rubber sole. Let's face it...once you have the pattern design made for the leather, all it involves is sourcing the leather, cutting the shape, adding a zipper and then glueing it all to a rubber sole base. There is no real cobbler or 'shoe design' going into the making of this. And for this, they charge over $400?? This was my first time buying an Arche shoe, and perhaps my last. I only realized how bad these boots were after wearing them a few times. Like I said, ZERO support. Also, because these is no real 'shoe' here...no true form to the boot ...it's simply a piece of very soft leather around your foot...this means there is nothing to hold your foot in place as you walk. While my shoes were the correct size for me, the lack of shoe forrm and the ultra soft, pliable leather means that as you walk, your foot may shift around slightly inside the boot, which can cause friction on the soles of your feet. I do not recommend anyone buy these boots....certainly not at the $444 or whatever price. I might be willing to pay $60 or so for these (for the cute style), but at $444 is is 'robbery'.

The "moon" color is the prettiest bronze/gold color I've ever seen -- subdued but not dull, glimmery but not shiny. The cut of the top of the shoe is strikingly different -- the assymetry just cuddles my feet really well and looks great. Now to the rest: The leather is the usual very very soft and flexible Arche type leather, which means the shoes don't provide all that much lateral support. The elastic in the heels helps keep them on, but with no arch support (the insole is totally flat) I'm not sure how they'd feel after a couple hours' wearing. So . . . I don't know whether I'll keep them even tho I would like to for their elegant and simple style. I wear a 9.5 shoe, medium slightly toward narrow, with narrow heels. I bought a 9 in these and they fit, and I'd welcome a little stretching for my longer foot but not the shorter one. I love almost flat shoes rather than totally flat (ugh) and these have a tiny bit of lift in the heel. It's a grippy outsole too. Quite expensive for me too. SO, I'm undecided at this point and will decide later on.

These Arche booties are "butter soft leather"......the fit was perfect....I am a 7 1/2.....and the 38 was great. They are so comfortable and look really stylish.

This is my 4th pair of the Drick. First purchased probably 6 years ago. Extremely comfortable . Should fit snug at first but the leather is so soft that, in no time, will loosen. By the way, I am still wearing all the other pairs that look as good as new

toe box too small and shoe too long. Not sure that any foot would fit this shoe. Too bad, because it would be so much fun to wear. also no arch support and not enough padding in sole of shoe.

I love the stylishness of this shoe. Unfortunately, although I'm always a true 7 (38) it was at least a half size too big. If it stretched it would feel as if it were falling off my feet. These shoes are so appealing I might try ordering the 37, but it's hard to believe they won't be too small. A disappointment, since if they'd fit they'd have been my new summer favorites.

These are cute shoes that are very flat. Because I was having a foot problem they are perfect for my needs. I have several pairs of Arche shoes and they never go out of style but always get compliments. Comfortable, cute, little pricey, lasts forever.

Loved these shoes! The color was true to the web page and the material feels wonderfully soft. Unfortunately, the size 8 I normally order is about 1/2 size too long and the medium width was just a touch too tight across the widest part of my foot. Would have ordered a 7 1/2 wide, but they aren't available in that size. Sadly, I'm returning these.
