These are the most amazing shoes I have ever worn! I am 53 and about 5 years ago the padding on the soles of my feet began to get thinner. When I would go on walking vacations during hot summer months, I began to get blisters for the first time (prior to this, I could walk for miles with no problems at all). I tried every shoe out there - Mephistos, Eccos, Clarks, Pumas, etc. -but nothing worked when walking in Europe on hot days, especially over cobblestone streets. I was the band-aid queen, and by the end of trips my feet would be covered with them. A few months ago, to prepare for a 4 week European trip to England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, and Poland, I ordered a gazillion shoes from Zappos and finally settled on these based on the positive reviews, hoping they would do the trick. I am happy to report that I have just returned from my trip and did not get a single blister or have any discomfort! These shoes were absolutely fantastic! They felt like cushy pillows and comformed to the shape of my feet. I actually looked forward to wearing them every day. I didn't even break them in - just wore them right out of the box! One VERY important recommendation that someone gave me and I am glad I followed - buy smartwool brand peds and put them around the inserts that are inside the shoes. That is, take out the insert that is in each shoe and put each ped around the insert (as if it were a foot) so that the bottom of the ped (the part that would be on the bottom of your foot if you wore the ped) is on the top of the insert so that your foot sits on it when you wear the shoe. This way, if your foot sweats, the smart wool ped will wick away the moisture. Also, the nice smart wool ped provides a cozy and soft base for your foot. As for size, I am usually a size 6.5 and one of my feet is a bit bigger than the other - I took a size 36 in this shoe and it was perfect.

I wear a true size 12 medium, complicated by hammertoes on both feet. Neither the medium nor the wide would offer the comfort all rave about. Pressure on toes too uncomfortable. So disappointed.

What a great shoe! have ordered 2 pairs within a week. Have plantar fasciitis and foot doctor recommended this brand. This style is so cute and not orthopedic looking. First ordered the black, wore to work for one day and almost had no heel pain, the shoe molds to your foot like a glove! Is more comfortable the more you wear the shoes, the 2nd pair came this afternoon (only took less than 12 hours to get the shoe) put the shoe on and thought it didn't fit like the first pair, wore around the house and can feel it molding to your foot! Can't believe I have had to spend this much on shoes, but am getting rid of all my other shoes that don't fit, better to have a couple of shoes that are good for your feet, than 10 pairs that cause pain. These are very cute and not ugly and old lady looking, no offense to old ladies as I am one. Please note, run one size smaller than marked -- if you are an 8, order a 7.

I never write reviews online for products. These shoes have moved me to do so. They are fabulous. I walked around Europe for 2 weeks with them, with nary a problem. They're light, fit perfectly right out of the box, and look good with skirts and pants. I'm ordering them in another color. Buy these shoes. You will not regret it.

I have traveled over 3,000,000 air miles internationally and I can slip these on and off at security, be comfortable on my flight and then put on my other heeled Naots when I arrive overseas for a formal meeting. Naot -- any style -- and Zappos are the best! What would I do without you?!

I got thee shoes in the peacock/purple combo. I just love them. I wear them with tights, skinny jeans, and long sweaters. The sparkle adds a little fun. They are so comfortable. The toe box is a little small, but this does give a smaller profile and a more feminine look than some similar Naots.

I love this shoe and it is flattering on; however, sizing down one size as Naot suggests did not work for me. I usually wear a 9 1/2 M but the nine was just too short on one foot. I instead got another pair of Matai in a 9 which I can wear very comfortably. Perfect and so very cushy!

I bought these shoes two weeks ago and have worn them every weekday since. I take the bus to work and want comfortable shoes that look decent with a suit. These are perfect! They are so comfortable from the first time that I put them on. I liked them so much, that I ordered another pair in the brown/tan shade - they arrived yesterday and are just as comfortable, and also way cuter in color than the picture shows. I am a size 7½ and got size 38.

I love these shoes. I now have four pairs: navy, black, silver, and brown. They are beautiful enough to wear with nice clothing, yet comfortable enough to make me think I am wearing my running shoes. I no longer wear any other "nice" shoes in my closet.

Oh, my freakin' Lord, I love this shoe! It was like a cozy nest for my feet from the very first time I put them on. Great support, but still very light-weight and flexible...plus they're really cute on. I'm on my feet all day and have arthritis, so a comfortable, well-made shoe is critical for me. I want these in every color and never want to be without them!

I have 2 pairs of Naot sandals that I wear all the time and 1 closed toe shoe that is only marginally comfortable. Because Naot does not do half sizes there is too much difference between sizes in the closed toe shoes. For instance, the Kirei strap on the 38 barely covered all the velcro on my instep but the strap on the 39s was a full inch longer and hung almost to the floor. The style is cute and I liked the purple color, but I wondered how well the sparkly leather would hold up to scuffing. But both pairs that I ordered had to go back because of fit issues.

This is perhaps the perfect shoe. I am overweight with extremely sensitive feet, high arches, and a painful heel spur and these allow me to be active all day. I bought the black pair 6 months ago and they were comfortable right out of the box with no break-in period needed. And these are so versatile I can wear them walking nature trails or dressed up for the holidays. Even as summer rolls around I am finding they look great any time of year.

I bought these in black and taupe. Love these mary janes! They are incredibly cute and stylish. Felt great from minute one to all day and evening too. I live in Florida and bought them for winter. They are perfect. I kind of wish they did not have a strap over top and were slip on, but they feel so good on my feet its not too big of a deal. The black can go very dressy, I wore my black ones to a holiday party with black pants, my feet did not hurt one little bit the whole night. The taupe color is so neutral it goes well with almost any color, I wear them with jeans and khakis.

The most comfortable shoes I've ever worn in my life. I've never bought such an expensive pair of shoes before, but I got tired of my feet hurting all the time. I have a very narrow heel, high arch, and wide front due to bunions. It is generally impossible for me to find anything that is comfortable. These were great, right out of the box. To be truthful, I find them a little ugly because of the mary jane strap going across which secures with velcro. I will probably mostly wear them with pants, as the pant leg will cover up the strap. But they are so comfortable I actually don't care that much how they looked. I think they run a little big, as I took a size 39 when I usually wear an 8 1/2 or even 9 shoe.

These are the most comfortable shoes that I have ever worn. They are very pretty. I am on my feet most of the day, and these feel great all day. I have even worn them at home when I do not usually wear shoes, to give my feet some comfort as I am cooking. They are squishy soft inside, like padded slippers, but still provide good support and are not sloshy like slippers or ballerina-style shoes. I have a high instep, but the band along the top is plenty big enough and does not pinch.

I bought a pair of these shoes in the brown and the black since I am on my feet all day at work. They are very comfortable and look cute with pants or a skirt. My only issue with them is the fact that after just a few times wearing them, the soles began to squeak pretty badly, that's not something I feel should be happening given the price of the shoe. Besides that, I couldn't have asked for a more comfortable shoe for work!
