Taos Footwear

Taos Footwear Logo
Founded in 2005, Taos’ footwear was born from a simple idea: create stylish and comfortable footwear without compromise. Designed in Southern California and produced globally in countries like Spain and Portugal, Taos’ influence remains tied to its namesake city of Taos, New Mexico, for its serenity, artistic nature, and casual lifestyle. Signature touches include but are not limited to natural stones, metal ornaments, and playful embroidery, all referencing the area’s natural heritage.

Taos believes comfort is built from the inside out. Their DNA is felt through signature footbeds, which are all anatomically designed, supportive, and comfortable. Innovative comfort technologies like Curves & Pods® design, an orthotic–friendly removable footbed that contours to hug the foot and provide shock absorption at every step, or Cool Recovery Foam®, a memory foam footbed with proprietary gel for lasting cooling comfort, are some of the ways we continue to broaden our appeal to devoted fans. Adjustability plays another important role in what Taos does by offering the wearer a custom-feeling fit.

Buying a pair of Taos shoes is more than just a purchase; it is accepting their invitation to Stand Up and Get Comfortable™!

These shoes were cute but so stiff with no padding in the sole. I usually wear an 8 B but tried these in an 8 wide as the reviews said they ran narrow. They were very difficult to get on and seemed to rub everywhere. They are cut very high on the foot so the shoed rubbed around my ankles. I also tried the 8 1/2 wide which were too long and not comfortable. Had to return.

I so wanted these to work, since they were so cute. But the 9.5 was too small and pinched my toes, while the 10 (I never wear a 10) was too large, and the heel slipped when I walked. Back both pairs went.

I am returning these. I wear an 8, and these were maybe 1/2 inch too short. These are beyond my budget to begin with, so they would have had to be perfect. Since there are no half sizes, I'm afraid the 9 would be too long.

Super comfy and was able to wear them all day immediately . I love the grey leopard’s muted tone, which goes with everything. Not the sexiest shoe, but definitely one of the most comfortable ones!

This shoe looks cute enough for a comfort shoe and has decent arch support. I usually wear a 9, but the 9 was much too big. I exchanged it for an 8.5 which was still a bit on the wide side but okay because I could tighten the strap as much as I wanted. Unfortunately, the heel of these shoes is really, really hard. If you take out the thin insole, it seems they're made of plywood. I deal with plantar fasciitis, and I'm a teacher so I'm on my feet about 4.5 hours every work day. One day in these shoes caused a terrible flare up with my plantar fasciitis and made my feet just plain hurt from how hard the shoe is. I don't recommend these shoes if you need something to stand up in most of the day.

I ordered both this and the Dansko Fawna, and I'm keeping the Fawna as it was just a little more comfortable. My toes seemed to hit the front of the shoe on the Taos and it just didn't feel like it would be comfortable for a full day at work. Both shoes have a little more of a heel than I normally wear for work but for some reason on the Taos, it just felt like my foot was sliding down more to the front of the shoe. I typically wear an 11 in dress shoes and ordered the 11 in the Taos. It was probably a little cuter than the Dansko, but with my bad feet, comfort is more important.

I really like these sneakers! They are very comfortable, great support, light weight and stylish. My regular shoe size is 6.5, my regular sneaker size is 7.0, for the Taos Star I needed the 7.5 size for full comfort. They look good too!

Even though I have a Wedge Taos (3 straps over foot but NO heel strap) in a 39, I found these "Luckie" to run a little long! I was going to return & order a 38. Meanwhile, I wanted to try on a brand that Zappos does not yet carry (Waldlaufer). It has Narrow heels & wider toes. I order 90 % of my shoes from Zappos. At this point there are ALMOST no more brands of sandals for me to TRY!!! I took a very LONG drive to a store for Waldlaufer. They also had Luckie in a CUTE Blue design. YES: I need a 38. SO Sorry Zappos. I LOVE your WONDERFUL Customer Service....but I got the last pair of Blue in 38. I am SIGNING Up for email notices for New Styles of Taos. I hope you get MORE colors in SO I can buy another pair of Luckie from YOU!

These sandals are as comfortable as all the reviews say they are! Took them out of the box yesterday and wore them to a concert that I stood for the entire time. The arch support is perfect, and the thong between the toes is very soft! I have aged into flat feet and have dealt with plantar fasciitis on and off....this pair of Taos will be the first of many to be purchased!

These sandals are wonderful! I have trouble finding comfortable shoes. As soon as I put these on my feet, I knew Taos has a customer for life. Out-of-the box comfortable and I love the style. The first time I wore them was to a wedding and they felt great all day. When I finish this comment I am shopping for sneakers.

Comfy right out of the box! I'm mostly a 9 and in rare cases a 8.5w - this 9m fit perfectly! Easy to wear and goes with everything.

I love these sandals. From the first moment out of the box, these are comfortable, and I can wear them all day long! There is good arch support, and I can adjust both straps, on the toe and around the ankle, to have a really nice fit! This is my second pair! Love them!

This shoe is true to size or may run very slightly large. It is completely adjustable, provides a surprising amount of support, and feels great on your foot. It looks good on. I am 59, with bunions, wide forefoot, narrow heel and flexible flat foot -- and I walked all over town the first day I got these. This is my favorite sandal this summer -- goes with everything (I bought camel color) and feels wonderful on.

I am normally a 7 1/2-8 and I ordered a 7 and it was a tad too short, but the width was perfect and the leather is so soft which wouldn't cause blisters. I returned and ordered an 8. The length is perfect, but the width is a tad too wide. I think I may have to return these also, because I'm afraid if they stretch they will be way too wide.

I wanted to love these sandals but the piece that is near the toes seemed to be a little too far forward so that it would rub my toes. Otherwise they fit fine and felt good. Unfortunately they are going back.

These are the most comfortale sandals I have ever owned. They have three adjustable straps, which makes it easy to get the perfect fit. I'm seriously considering buying an identical pair because I'm afraid by the time these wear out, the style might be discontinued.

Overall these are very comfortable, although they felt quite narrow out of the box. They are leather so I’m hopeful they will stretch to comfort. I have an average to slightly wide foot.

I had high hopes for these sneakers as everyone raves about them, but I just couldn’t handle the arch support. It felt strangely hard and lumpy. I didn’t think I would be able to wear them long enough to see if the insole would break in and conform to my foot. The black tropical print was really cute too.

Just got these shoes. Have not worn anything but flats because of my bunion, but I thought I would try a wedge. I love them! I wore them around the house for an hour and my feet did not hurt. It’s so nice to know that I can wear something that doesn’t make me feel dumpy. Another great pair of Taos. So worth the $$$.

These sandals are very comfortable. I have ordered a dozen pairs to try on, these were the keepers. There is Velcro that allows you to adjust the top strap. I had to order a size up. I would call these brown, not Gray. I am very happy with this purchase!

adorable shoe, but not wide at all. Why not offer a wide option? Usually I fit an 8 w (wide) just fine, but with this shoe it is too narrow and tight for a wide size. I need a double wide in this and it is not available. So people with wide feet near the ball of the foot may not fit in this shoe good. too bad. nice color sage distressed and cute style, but I have to return it

Trophy 2

Taos is my go-to brand. They are so comfortable. I have difficulty finding shoes. I have very high arches, hammer toes, different leg lengths and spine pain. I love the adjustable hook and loop closures on the flats and sandals. I can insert my orthotics and still keep the shoes on my feet. The Trophy 2 sandal is just like the old Trophy except the Tstrap is narrow at the bottom and wider at the top (the old version was the same width). I have them in 4 colors and wish they'd make the metallic gold again. I don't know if they use a different last, but I have to buy a size larger (42) in the flats than in the sandals (41).
