After years of abusing my feet in narrow toed shoes I discovered these and am on my third or fourth pair, not because they don\'t last but because I wear them so often. Not terribly stylish but they go with just about anything and when my feet are comfortable I realize I have my priorities right.

It was the darling floral pattern that attracted my attention to this shoe, and was happily surprised to find, that this is not only a pretty shoe, but a comfortable shoe. pretty enough to go out at night, and comfortable enough to walk around the neighborhood. I am happy with this purchase. Zappos always delivers the goods!

My mother introduced me to the mesh Arcopedico flats (with which I instantly fell in love), and when I discovered these trim leather maryjanes, I just had to have them. They go with almost everything except formal wear. I have worn mine to events ranging from meetings to my high school reunion. They are extremely comfortable, like all Arcopedico shoes, and very stylish in a classic mode. *A note on the sizing: These run, like all Arcopedico shoes, absolutely true to their European sizing, which does not match up exactly to American sizing. If you are American like me, you need to know your European size; it is important if you are to get the right fit in European-made and -sized shoes.

Great shoe and so fun in the flower. I really like it. But jury is still out as to whether I will keep them because of the strap. I wish manufacturers wouldn't make the strap so that it doubled back over itself to close. First, I have a high instep and the straps look bulky over the top of my foot. Second, the velcro used is extra strong and if the whole velcro is not perfectly matched or to fit the strap doesn't cover all the velcro you, are left with scrapey velcro that can shred the bottoms of pants-especially knit pants.

I bought my first pair of Scala 6 years ago at a store in Santa Cruz. Having been able to try them on, I lost my apprehension about spending so much money on one pair of shoes, but they lasted 6 years, were comfortable from the first step with no break-in period, and I wore them just about every single day. I work in a toy store, on my feet all day, and when my beloved shoes finally gave out (small hole in baby toe area) I knew I wanted to find a new pair. My daughters have purchased from Zappos in the past, so I found what I wanted, they shipped within a week, and on Saturday morning I said goodbye to the old pair, put on the new pair, and my feet never knew the difference, working retail the weekend before Christmas. I want red ones next! Pro-rated over time, the price is well worth the long-term comfort!

I'm on my feet from 10-16 hours a day at work so I need a comfortable shoe with arch support, these did the trick. No break in time and very cute. Worth the money. Only problem is the velcro will snag pantyhose if not careful.

These shoes are so comfortable I can wear them all day on my feet at work, or walk long distances while traveling. I highly recommend them.

The shoes are so comfy and so soft that I can work/stand in them all day. They look classic and work perfectly now for winter. I would definitely recommend.

Like walking on air! The Scala is great to look at, incredibly comfortable, true to size. I'm making this as my main Europe trip shoe. I'll write more when I return in May...

It is extremely rare when I buy a shoe online that does not fit but this shoe does not fit at all. In addition to being too tight, it is made of a hard and very uncomfortable material. It is a beautiful show in the picture, but when you receive it, you will be disappointed. Just looking at it in my closet makes my feet hurt.

I wore this shoe to hike around tombs and temples in Egypt, then polished them up and wore them to work when I got back. They are great. They are great, though another time I might buy the Shawna shoe instead since it looks like the strap falls further down the foot.

This is a very comfortable shoe that works well for everyday or dressier use. Since I cannot wear high heels of any kind this is a nice "stand in" for a dressier look - its simple style works with everything. This was a replacement for the exact same shoe that I wore out. I also have this in a nubuck.

At last a comfy and pretty shoe in my size. Arch support was not quite high enough...but I need a very high support and this was remedied with an insert. What I really liked was the low cut throat and the Velcro straps; both of which allow for my personal comfort. I plan to get a couple of pairs in different colors.

This is a really cute shoe. It runs quite wide but that's a good thing for me. The problem for me was that one of the straps was shorter than the other. Since my instep is very high, the shorter strap left some of the hook and loop fastener showing on the side and that looked funky.

Great shoes. Great shopping experience. My sister recommended these shoes after I admired them on her. I'm an exact size 8/39, medium width. These fit perfectly. I predict they'll be my go-to shoe: everyday, lots of walking, good construction, and go with everything. Bonus: easy on and off. Quick delivery. Good price.

Zappos.com is amazing! I checked its website when I was looking for a pair of comfortable but chic flat shoes, found a large assortment, edited this down to the most perfect black suede Mary Janes, and placed my order (which arrived the next day). The shoes are so great that I'm now going to order another pair from Zappos!

This is the most comfortable pair of shoes I have bought in quite some time. I have a somewhat wide foot so the toebox usually a problem. But the leather of this shoe has molded to my foot in no time. Very pleased with this shoe.

I can't describe how good they feel-like going barefoot but with support! They are cute and not clunky. I have a narrow foot and the M width fits perfectly. I have them on with a denim skirt and tights, but could easily have worn pants. I just ordered the black suede. My feet thank you.

I had a pair of these last year and my son's dog ate one so had to buy another pair! They are wonderful, supportive and cushioned in all the right places. I wear them when traveling and having to run from plane to plane. They are so comfortable and light. I am on my feet a lot and I can truly wear these all day with no problem.

These shoes are incredible -- the next best thing to wearing slippers -- supremely comfortable and enough support. I'm also delighted with the whimsical design. The velcro is a nuisance -- I'd much prefer a strap with a buckle, but I don't wear stockings very often. I think it will be okay as long as the velcro is carefully lined up so that there's no overlap.Regardless, I love them. They're the most comfortable, satisfying shoes that I've had in decades. All hail Arcopedico!

I love these shoes! They fit me perfectly and have wiggle room for my toes. I am very happy with my purchase and would buy them again, in a different color, of course! Thank you Zappos for the more than excellent customer service.

I purchased these beautiful, comfortable shoes two weeks ago. After three days I sent for a second pair in the same color. I love these shoes! They offer tremendous support and I wear them daily. I was told "if the shoe fits buy another pair!" Of course, my husband doesn't quite agree and has been calling me Imelda for years now.

I had problems finding comfortable shoes for a long time. A friend suggested that I try European shoes. I did find a store that carries European shoes. I like the Arcopedico Scala, but their exchange and return policy was not customer friendly. I decided to search online and found Zappos Shoes. The staff I talked to were all so helpful and friendly. What I like best is their 365 days return and exchange policy and free shipping both ways. After I ordered the Arcopedio Scala shoes expecting two days delivery, but it came less than 24 hours. The Arcopedio Scala shoes are very light and comfortable. The left shoe was a half size bigger than the right shoe. Returning was very easy. The next pair, both shoes fitted perfectly. I didn't find the velcro on the strap a problem. What I did is after I take off the shoe I stick both sides of the velcro of the strap together, this way it stays out of the way when I need to put it on, it doesn't snag the hose. I highly recommend these shoes and Zappos Shoes' excellent service. Thanks very much Zappos.

Perfect shoes with the velcro strap, especially for someone with 1 size 9 1/2 narrow and 1 size 8 wide feet, post surgical. Love Zappos, the best company to work with!
