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.
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!
The shoe is beautifully crafted, but my feet spilled out of the sides. Also, the cork footbed is quite visible from the side.
The most comfortable shoes I ever put on my feet! Plenty of toe room, support in the ball of foot as well as in the arch. Got them yesterday and wore them all day today. My feet felt great at the end of the day. Getting them in black too.
FINALLY! A shoe with everything I need AND it FITS! I love these shoes! I have wide feet (C-D width), size 9.5 - 10 and NEED super strong arch support. Cushion is not as necessary for my feet as much as an aggressive arch support is, but it is an added bonus! These shoes got all that!! They are very supportive, soft and comfortable. I do not have or wear very many closed-toe shoes because there are so few that have a spacious enough toe box and these have plenty of room in the forefoot area. The size 41 fits my feet very well and are very roomy. I can wear these with OR without socks. They go great with jeans. The only thing I would say should be changed in the design of these shoes is the adjustable strap should be just a bit wider, more robust, since it is having to be the primary component of what is holding this shoe on your foot. Other than that, these shoes are perfect and seem to be very well made and durable.
Wanted to love these shoes: they were so pretty, the arch support felt so good,they were just the right color. Alas, the toe box was just too big for my feet.
Love the support of this shoe, Comfort too.
These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn!! I am a big fan of Born and Clarks. These needed no break in period. Need some arch support and these are great. Normally wear a 6.5 and these ran true to size. They are pricey but when your feel are happy it's worth it. They are very flattering on. Love them!
Like other reviewers, I found these shoes to be super cute, but the leather was very stiff and the edge of cutout over the base of the toes rubbed a blister within the first hour I wore them. I got several other blisters along the sides and back of my feet wearing them one time for only 5 hours, due to the stiff leather. I have found their sandals to be super comfortable and wider than regular width, which I love. These shoes have the leather stitched into the top of the foot bed, making them a whole size less wide. If you have narrow feet, this would probably be fine. The footbed is very comfortable and, while I have a high instep and high arches, I found the strap to be plenty long. The arch support was not initially there, and I know it would have developed over time with the cork footbed. Unfortunately, I only wore them one day for 5 hours and returned them, due to the narrow width and the stiff leather beating up my feet.
Arch support not as great as picture portrays. Memory foam footbed interesting feel, but not much cushion at ball of foot in comparison to regular workout sneakers. I like the style of the outside of the shoe, but white on the outside of shoe is a magnet for getting dirty and shoes will not look new for long.
Not enough footbed support. Back paneling is stiff.
