Arcopedico

Arcopedico Logo
From the beginning, there was only one goal for Professor Elio Parodi - create a piece of footwear that would be synonymous with the word "comfort." In 1966, Professor Parodi succeeded in attaining his goal and Arcopedico® footwear was born. Our feet have been thanking him ever since.

The Arcopedico brand can be identified by three basic traits: the Techno-Elastic upper, an anatomic footbed, and the twin arch support system. Due to its patented design and cushioning system, an Arcopedico shoe offers benefits that other brands simply cannot. Wearing an Arcopedico shoe will actually exercise your foot, strengthen the muscles, and ensure more comfort in walking. The tops of your feet will breathe easy and your soles will want to keep walking long after you've stopped.

Arcopedico not only offers an exceedingly comfortable shoe, they also offer many different styles and colors. You are sure to find something that will fit your casual lifestyle, whether it is an open toe sandal or a stylish Mary Jane. All Arcopedico styles are manufactured to provide you with industry leading comfort and durability. You owe it to your feet - try out an Arcopedico shoe.

I want so badly to keep these shoes. They are so lightweight. I travel a lot and I can imagine these in my carryon as my second pair that can actually be worn with a dressier pant. My left foot is slightly larger than my right and if the toe box were just a tad rounder, I would definitely keep these. I prefer more arch support than these offer, too. I'm wearing them around the house now and will decide shortly. I may try them in the next size up.

These shoes might be the most comfortable that I've ever had. I haven't had them on long enough to say that unequivocally...I'll have to get back to you. But when I put them on, it was an aaaahhhhhhh moment...like putting my feet in some soft, comfy place and then finding out that there was actually some support. I wore them to physical therapy this morning, and they're still on my feet and will stay there all day. I think I love them.

I was disappointed that the Velcro did not completely loop through and around like in the arcopedico L18 shoe. I go up and down a lot of stairs and it seemed like the Velcro would come undone.

They're really cute shoes. A little too soft for me .. in other words, looking for more stability. They also felt a little narrower than I usually get with Arcopedia.

I normally wear a size 9 and occasionally an 8.5 so I thought the 39 would be perfect for me. I was wrong. It’s too small. I’m sending back for the 40 and hope those work better because these are reallly cute. The suede is so soft but not flimsy and the insole is padded nicely with a slight arch support. I ordered the red which is a true red. I may get the blue instead. They didn’t have the blue in the 39 so I got the red. I love red but I feel I’ll get more use out of the blue. Thank you Zappos for the great service as usual.

This is the third pair of these shoes that I have purchased. Third pair because I wear them out, I wear them so often. They are perfectly comfortable and look pretty good for a casual, comfortable shoe - not clunky.

These are So Comfortable, much like 2 pairs of flats I have from Arcopedico. I was starting to miss arch support in some of my other shoes now that I'm doing more lifting, and these boots are very welcome in time for colder weather. The style of them is a bit dull, but at least they blend in well with a lot of outfits. The vegan friendly materials were also a big reason for me choosing this shoe and brand.

I originally bought the size 41 (9.5 US) as my right foot is nwo longer than my left and my big toe is enlarged due to arthritis. I have other Arcopedico shoes in the 41 but this ran too large for either foot. I liked that style and the soft leather over the top of my toes enough to give the size 9 a try. Luckily the insoles come out and I was able to try different inserts in each shoe so my right foot was comfortable and my left foot did not did slip out of the shoe. The wide strap helps keep both feet comfortably in place and the angled strap adds a nice bit of style without making them looks like every other Mary Jane style shoe. Thank you to Zappos for making it possible for me to find shoes that work with my troublesome, aging feet.

Well, these shoes are not winning any awards for good looks. Sort of old-lady. But even though I hemmed and hawed about keeping them for this reason, I ultimately decided to because of the comfort. They are crazy comfy, and the looks are not as noticeable when I wear pants (I would probably not wear these with a skirt or capris). There is NO rubbing (I am crazy sensitive to rubbing, especially at the heel) and the footbed is so soft and supportive. I am about to go work a trade show that will probably have me walking 10+ miles/day, and I have confidence these are up to the job.

i would have loved these, but they just weren't all that great. they were too big and a smaller size would have been too small. i really liked the quirky look/style but they just didn't make.

I bought the Arcopedico L19 in black and it was a great short boot. Very comfortable on my bunion. Also very durable in the rain and mud. I liked it well enough to buy the brown boot and will soon buy the red. Excellent all around boot for comfort, style and durability. It would be nice if the same boot came in a knee length to wear with skirts. Thanks.....

I love these flats and they were terrific on their maiden voyage to the streets of Oakland and San Francisco city streets. Originally I ordered a size 37, which I found to be much too loose for my 6.5M feet. The 36 was perfect and no breaking in was needed, despite having had foot surgery on one foot with a large scar on top of the foot and 3 screws. I could move swiftly, with confidence, and they simply slipped off during the flight. I'm totally in love with the sweet sparkly design of the fabric and the navy color was perfect for me. Highly recommend. This was my first pair of Arcopedico shoes and hopefully many more to come. Thank you Zappos for getting the exchange done so quickly and efficiently so that I could take the right sized pair on my trip.

I can’t say enough about these shoes. I have arthritis and these are one of the few brands I can wear. I own some styles in different colors. People compliment them frequently and ask for the brand.

Had to exchange my recommended size for a full size larger. Have noticed this with some styles in this brand. My bunions love the stretch in the toe box, and the instep comes up high so shoes fit snugly on heels. No arch support, unfortunately, but with an added insert these are definitely comfortable. What I like best is the style. Old(er!) age foot problems have confined me to boxy-toed New Balance sneakers for all occasions. Nice to have a more stylish shoe to dress up. Not enough support overall for long wear or long walking for me, but these fit my needs for an occasional dress up.

My main issue with these shoes are the insoles which immediately bunched up inside both shoes after only a few minutes of walking. And the process repeated each time I took them off to straighten out the insoles. I suppose the problem might be fixed if I buy fabric glue and permanently attach the insoles myself - but I think the shoes are pricey enough that one would expect the manufacturer to take care of the issue before shipping to customers.

I didn't realize these boots were plastic and unfortunately it is why I am returning them. They look like leather, fit like a glove, are adjustable in the back for your calves to a point, and are a great style but they will not last. I can tell already they are going to fall apart with regular wear, and the idea of wearing these for long periods of time is suffocating. Plastic doesn't breath.
