This is a beautiful boot, and I liked it a lot. Ultimately I did have to send it back due to the leather sole which I had forgotten to look at before purchasing. Hence overall 4 stars instead of 5.; I prefer a rubber sole for non-slip walking. But if you don't mind a leather sole, I think you will do very well with this boot. There isn't much if any arch support or foot-bed cushioning, but that is pretty standard with a dress boot. It is very nice looking, though, and works well with both pants and skirts.

Really LOVE these boots... except for the circumference only being 15 1/2". Im guessing these shoes are for people who are very thin-model types. I was able to get the boot zipped up with only 1 1/2" remaining and although I should return them because of this, I decided to keep them and hope that over time my calves will shrink. In the meantime, I will be wearing this cute boots with longer dresses and skirts, and jeans to find the part that isnt zipped up.

I loved these shoes! They were comfortable, classic, and the fabric was awesome. The only problem is that they run large! I am a size 5 so I can't go smaller. I even tried putting in a little pad and they still slipped off in the back when I walked. I am so sorry I have to return them!

I felt the quality was not great! I guess I didn’t love the suade for buckling the shoes. It felt kind of flimsy and hard to buckle.

Super cute boot. I was so excited when it arrived but broken hearted when I tried it on and found that it was too small. I usually wear a size 7.5/8 but ordered a size 9 just in case. Sadly Im returning them in hopes of getting a larger size (10, as that was the largest size available). Im keeping my fingers crossed.

The Alexander shoe is the most comfortable shoe I’ve ever worn. It has a nice padding and that makes it a comfortable shoe to walk in. I bought my first pair in Nordstrom’s but when I needed another pair I found them on this website but they were out of stock. I check marked an area where they offer to let you know when the shoe is back in stock and when it was they notified me as they had said that they would so I ordered another pair. I was very pleased with the new pair I had ordered.

These were cute and comfortable, I liked the mesh tops and heel height. However, the bottoms were hard plastic and offered no traction on a hard floor. I nearly wiped out in them upon my first step on my hard wood floor after trying them on. Obviously not practical so sad to have to return.

The stretch material across the top of the foot is very comfortable. But it’s a very hard sole with no padding. The shoes also make a loud flip flop sound. So the wood-sounding clomp of the hard sole and the flip flop sound of the slide combine to make for a very noisy shoe. They look super pretty on my feet, so the verdict is still out if I’m keeping them. You

Very cute - looks exactly as they do in the picture. I bought them for my daughter to wear as a nice, neutral casual shoe, but you could dress them up too.

The sandals fit just fine, but when walking, they make a klop-klop sound which is a little annoying if you are in a place where it is quiet and You need to walk across the room, especially on hardwood floor. They are man-made souls so they don’t feel like a natural gait when you walk as opposed to leather. I only wear them at home

Runs small compared to other shoes of the same brand. I had to return and exchange for a half size larger.

Very pretty and stylish slide. A bit narrow - beware if you have even small bunions or just wide-ish foot. Not for long walks around town. But they are great for work or casual errand runs, especially if your foot is narrow to medium in the toe box area.

The main issue I have with these shoes is that they are SO squeaky. It's obnoxious wearing them, and I would probably return them if I could. They will also rub your toes the first few times you wear them so beware of that.

These are very pretty shoes. They fit nicely but do not have good parch support. My foot feels like it would be more comfortable if the rise to the heel height started much further forward. Of course then my heel would be off the back of the shoe. I also ordered a pair of Naturalizer Valerie and I am keeping the Naturalizer and returning the AA Shelter. Thanks Zappos for your return policy.

The shoes are true to size. They are comfortable. They have a soft, padded sole. They work well for what I was looking for: versatile casual black shoes with a comfortable heel that can be worn with shorts, jeans or skirts.
