I was excited about this shoe- I’ve been looking for a black sneaker. However, this shoe looked a little more ‘orthopedic’ than I was expecting. Still pretty cute. It not quite what I was looking for.

The shoes are great. I just wish the elastic wasn't so low but I kept them because I couldn't find any other Romika boots I liked. They're hard to find. I've been wearing Romika for a few years now. They're comfortable right out of the box and I have problem feet. I love the brand.

This is an attractive shoe. But, for me, the seams along the side of the foot just hit me wrong and with wearing socks. Hate to send back, they are so cute, but too painful. Bummer.

I purchased these for my husband, ordering size 10 when he is really a 9.5. It is the first time he has ever had a shoe that he felt was narrow. He does have high arches so maybe that is the issue. They are well made and look much better on the foot. Unfortunately I an sending them back and looking for something with a little more width. Since he will wear them for next ten years they have to be good.

I ordered the graphite. When I opened the box my husband said “oh they sent brown”. These are chameleon shoes. I tried them on with gray, brown and olive green. They appeared to take on the color of what I was wearing. Great neutral, comfortable out of the box, I love them.

I love the look of this shoe. However it was very loose on the inside. There is a stretch area there. My feet rolled to the inside. The shoe was not supportive enough for me.

Order the Carmel color which I loved. I then ordered the black. I wear a size eight and that’s what I ordered fit great. Wore them right out of the box with no pain. Love the flat heel. Overall a cute boot!!

Love the styling on these shoes, sleek and modern looking. Super comfortable too,although I did add a ball of the foot pad which I use in all my shoes for comfort, sole is flexible and shoes have a rubber outsole so you are not clomping around. I usually wear a 7 and the 38s fit fine. You'll love the way these look and feel.

I have 3 or 4 pairs of Romika shoes and love the way they usually fit, this style just didn't have the same toe room that l need, my other shoes seem to have more elastic. The price was worth testing , but l did return them with Zappos terrific service , credit card will be credited. Thank you . I will Oder again soon !

I have been buying Romika Mokasso slippers and wedges for some 30 years. They are still very well made. They are my bedroom slippers, but you can wear them outside too. Some people complain about the scratchy sole being uncomfortable, but I don't agree. These slippers are very comfortable. Sometimes I wear socks, sometimes I don't. The Mokassos I just received were made in Czech Republic, and the quality is excellent. I wear a 7 1/2 in a closed back and an 8 in an open back. I find the fit of European 38 my best fit. The European 39 is too long and too wide. You need to break them in a little and then they do not look too short. Hope this helps you.

This shoe was too large for my size 7 foot. I don't know whether the 6.5 will be big enough. the crinkly type of leather is interesting. it is definitely made to go with jeans if that is what you are looking for.

I own another pair of Romika shoes, also size 6. A lot of other shoes I wear a 6.5. The length and width were fine - I have a wide foot with a narrow heel. I really liked the way they looked, and the soft insole. However, there is no arch support whatsoever and the insole is not removable. Wearing them indoors on carpet for a couple of hours, my feet felt really blah and tired so I could not keep them as I need something I can do a lot of walking and standing and feel supported. I am disappointed because the other pair of Romikas I own are sandals and they have much better support in the footbed.

Very cute and stylish boot! These would be especially perfect in Europe or going out where tennis shoes are too casual. However they run narrow. I normally wear 10 or 11 and the 11's I ordered were too snug. Due to the snugness, I could feel the seams around the zipper. Toe box was good, ankle and heel areas had enough room, loved the style overall. A very well made and sturdy boot. Inside stated Germany which usually means high quality.
SandyS from Seattle WA on October 19, 2018
Purchased these in black and they look great and feel like they could be comfortable.However, the fit is a bit too roomy and there is no arch support. In fact, it's quite flat - back they go.
Comfy from NYC on October 17, 2018
This boot runs large and wide. Also, the heel is a wide fit. I would recommend ordering a size down. the leather is soft, style is good, and overall a nice shoe. there is no zipper but the elastic gusset on each side allow for ease in putting on and taking off.
Zappos Reviewer on October 17, 2018
This shoe just is not substantial. There is not enough height in the heel coverage and my foot slipped out with each step. They just felt cheap.
Elizabeth from Arvada on October 16, 2018
Very comfortable fit. Will be perfect slip on & go for cold weather days. I’m new to the brand & look forward to seeing more styles. I have high arches & prone to plantar fasciitis so I’m very pleased this is so “right outta the box comfortable “!
Barbara from Michigan on October 15, 2018
was (still am) looking for a moderate heeled shoe to wear with skirts and trousers and especially while standing on risers to sing in my ensemble. My foot is on the narrow side, but I can often wear a medium, especially in lace-ups. Not this one. Sadly returned.
Zappos Reviewer on October 15, 2018
I was not certain that these shoes would fit my partucular need at first, but there is so much to like about them. They do have a cool, sleek minimalist biker vibe about them. Lightweight yet very well made. I can feel the edge of the lining under my arch but the shoe is so comfortable otherwise that I dont think I care. A bit pricier than I would like...and I paid FULL price, but they are pretty awesome. I think they're keepers!

Fabulous fit & comfort. Chosen after trying on many brands & types. I have a wide forefoot & narrow heel, & am hard to fit, & these were great. These took me all over Rome for 8 days - comfortably over ruins, cobblestones, and many miles of walking - better than my Aravons that couldn't handle cobblestones. They're also great on 9 hour plane rides as you can loosen them as your feet swell. I recommend them highly.
Mary from New Orleans on October 12, 2018
These shoes fit perfectly. They are as lightweight and as comfortable as my favorite brand of tennis shoes, Puma. They can be slid on and off with ease thanks to the elastic panel on the inner side of the shoes. The leather is smooth and soft; the rubber sole has more than enough traction. I would definitely buy these again. I predict that they will become my new favorite shoes. :)

The "nuss" color of this shoe is fabulous ... rich and carmel like! The two side zippers make for easy on and off and the shoe is comfortable except the top opening is just too large and sloppy. I don't think thick socks would make a difference ... so sadly will return them.
Kc from Adna on October 10, 2018
Loved the shoe but it did not offer much support. The foot bed up toward the ball of my foot was like it had no insole at all.
Zappos Reviewer on October 10, 2018
I found this brand of shoes in a store. I came home and got them at Zappos. I have had great success ordering shoes. I have close to 10 pair and love them all. I wear these ones all the time. Thanks
Zappos Reviewer on October 08, 2018
Super love this super sneaker! They fit perfectly right out of the box and I was able to wear them comfortably for a two day walking trip through DC. I agree with other reviews that there isn’t much arch support but it’s a minimalist sneaker and I think there is room for your own orthotic if you need it. The toebox is lovely, it’s not overly wide but it’s not narrow so it’s very comfortable for your toes to have a little room when you’re walking. It doesn’t hurt that I got tons of compliments either! I wear a size 9M and now own the black and the blue!!!
