Aetrex’s mission is to create ‘the healthiest shoes you’ll ever wear.’ Aetrex footwear is designed to help align the body through proper arch support. At Aetrex‚ the belief is that proper alignment starts from the ground up. Proper arch support allows the wearer to redistribute pressure more evenly throughout the entire foot resulting in improved balance and stability, while the pillow soft memory foam cushioning provides a superior level of comfort with each step you take. All Aetrex products proudly feature the “Aetrex Healthy Three” which consists of Lynco® orthotic footbeds for balance support and alignment, memory foam cushioning for customization and comfort, as well as antimicrobial technology to keep your feet healthy and clean. Aetrex footwear provides the perfect combination of function and style that allows you to both look great and feel great all day long.
Aetrex is my Go To brand, and these shoes don't disappoint. Well-made with good arch support. True to size and width. I couldn't resist the flowered design. They make me smile.
A beautiful shoe. I wear an 8 and ordered size 39. Unfortunately the top of the shoe hurt my arthritic big toe. Had to return but if your foot is not real wide would highly suggest.
Fun, but just did not work with any of my jeans. So I am returning.
These shoes are super comfortable and worth the money. The cross strap allows for a great fit-with or without socks. Style is very flattering. Thank you for great service.
Not gonna lie. I'm really disappointed. I just received these shoes in a size 42 / 11. I own 5 other pairs of Aetrex shoes, as well as several insoles - so I am a massive Aetrex fan. And these shoes are *significantly* more narrow than the Cheryls. These are not medium width, definitely very narrow. There is absolutely zero room in the toe box. In comparison, my Aetrex Cheryls in size 42 / 11 are wide and spacious in the toe box. Aetrex *REALLY* needs to make a size 43 / 12 for those of us women on the larger end of the spectrum - who are generally a true size 42 / 11 but actually don't want their toes crammed in due to poor construction. I feel really sad. I've had my eyes on these shoes for the last year, and I'm going to have to send them back. And they're so gorgeous. Shoes like these just make it heartbreaking that I'm a size 11 and companies don't make shoes large enough for me. Very sad.
I just got these and tried them on: very comfortable right away and they fit well. I got them in grey flannel and they kind of look like slippers. The arch support hits at just the wrong place- not immediately uncomfortable just strange but I think they will work well for my week of yoga retreat, so I'm keeping them
I adore my Aetrex Cheryls. They are the most comfortable shoes I own. I'm in love with Aetrex and the footbed on these shoes are so blissful and luxurious to walk on. Truly, these shoes are a Holy Grail item, one that I hope Aetrex continues to produce for decades - because this style is classic and perfect. I have 5 pairs of Aetrex shoes / sandals, plus several pairs of insoles. This company has better comfort shoes than Naot, and that's saying a lot imho, considering they're more affordably priced.
These shoes are so comfortable that I immediately unloaded about a decade's worth of shoe purchased in the unfulfilled hope that they could be comfortable. The shoe gives the height you might want with a dress or trousers, but isn't as severe of an incline as it might otherwise be if it didn't have all the great padding on the ball. So, it offers arch support and metatarsal cushioning in one. Also, I think it's pretty fashionable looking for a "comfortable" shoe. I purchased these in my standard size, USA 7, but when I went to Aetrex website to try ordering other styles, a 7 was too small.
Based on the reviews that indicated this shoe ran large, I ordered a 40 instead of a 41. It felt a full size too small. I love Aetrex sandals and this is very nice shoe, but the toe box is too shallow to accommodate my toes, so I won't order the larger size.
I am so sad to have to return this shoe! The foot bed is so comfortable, the heel is a good height and feels secure, but the shoe cuts into the top of my feet right over the big toe joint. Just too uncomfortable to wear. Also the strap just barely meets the velcro closure after it crosses over my very high instep. The 38 was too big and the 37 almost short. Thank you, Zappos, for making returns so easy. I'll keep trying!
