I wanted to love these, but did not. First, the good. The upper has a nice shape and the stone color is perfect. I liked the oily moleskin type leather and while it was more plain, the shaping and good leather made it nice. It also hit at a nice place on the ankle. Unfortunately, below the upper it wasn't so hot. The insole was not great. If the price point had been about $30-$40 less, then sure, it would have been a fine insole, but at this price point you're competing with Born Crown, Clark Artisan, Sofft, Spring Step, Dansko, and Rockport, all of which have a much nicer insole with more cushion and support. Not to mention Vionic who has a footbed with orders of magnitude more support (think orthopedics without seeing a doctor) and is starting to make some good uppers. The sole tread is rounded at the edges of the toe / ball of the foot. I can see it now in the photos because that ever so slight roundness makes for extra motion and instability. If the tread in the front had been just flat, the motion wouldn't be there. Also, while the heel is made of a really nice and solid stacked heel, the heel is set forward just enough where it seemed to add to the motion. If you have sensitive ankles or knees, you're going to feel that instability. It frustrated me because all they would have had to do is make the front of the tread flat and set that heel back just a small bit. In all, I was disappointed. I had ordered both the 7 and 7.5. The larger size would have accommodated a thick sock. But, they all go back. Of course, the praises sung for Zappos can't be overdone. Excellent.

I got these shoes for a trip to Europe - I anticipated a lot of walking and didn't have any really good shoes, plus I knew it would be raining a lot, so I wanted some short leather boots for comfort and for wearing in rain. These arrived in two days, right before we were to leave on our trip. I was a little worried about breaking them in, but from the start these were super comfortable! I have very high arches and these were very supportive. I also worried that the heel might be too high for doing a lot of walking, but no problem from that quarter either. I wore these every other day so as to give my feet a rest in case they should start hurting; towards the end of the trip however I wore these five days in a row due to rain, and only experienced discomfort on the evening of the fourth day (and in the morning I was fine). I don't know that any shoe could be worn five days in a row without any discomfort! I love the style too and have gotten many compliments. Great purchase and good pricing.

I wear an 8.5 wide w/ neuropathy in my feet and these are the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. I have a very high arch and was worried about support, but the heel is just the right height to hug my foot perfectly. There was a very short breaking in period with them being a bit tight across the top of my foot; 15 mins with thick socks on had them fitting like a dream. Great rubber sole for traction and steady heel. Not too hot or too cold - perfect for fall and winter. Love these.

I have gotten tired of shoes with bad support, and decided to invest some money in some shoes that are stylish and comfortable. A recent appointment with the podiatrist made me realize how much damage all of those flip-flips, flats and cheap heels have done - bunions (at 25!) and pronation, which were contributing to my knee problems! So you can imagine my extreme excitement when I found these shoes, which not only look awesome but are seriously comfortable. Even with my narrow foot they have awesome arch support, and the inside of the shoe is nice and springy while the sole is still hard and thick enough to walk around a lot and not make my bunions hurt. The heel is very slight, so it gives a nice feminine touch without really even feeling like a heel. I'm in love! I'm thinking of getting more pairs because I can't even bear to think of having to stop wearing these. All in all, a stylish and comfortable investment!

This is my first pair of Cobb Hill shoes and they are wonderful. I'm 5'11 and never wear heels so I was a little nervous about these, but they are so comfortable I won't go back to cheap flats again. I have a high arch, but there is enough support in these. I highly recommend them. So soft!

I love these shoes! Bunions and Rheumatoid Arthritis make it extremely difficult to find comfortable shoes. These are wonderful! I normally buy half a size up to ease discomfort. Not this time! I am buying another color today!

I love almost everything about these super-cute booties. The suede leather is incredibly soft and comfortable right out of the box. My one complaint is that the lacing is not as shown in the photo and video. The laces are quite long, so when you tie them there is a bog, loopy bow on the outside the kind of messes up the sleek look of the shoes. I couldn't figure out how to tuck this bow inside as shown in the pictures, and if you cut the laces to make them less prominent they are going to fray.

I ordered two sizes hoping one would fit. The 8 D was too large but the 7.5 D fit perfectly. (7.5D is my normal size.) I have a wide forefoot with bunions and a narrow heel. The laces allowed me to tighten up the ankle area so the heel doesn't slip.I was so happy to find a cute shoe for my extremely hard to fit feet. The smooth toe box and soft leather allowed comfort for my "lumpy" forefoot.

Very comfortable ankle boots; like walking on a cloud. Also the low heel gives a little lift without tiring my feet. True to size. Very cute. Highly recommended.

Shoe/bootie is darling and I love the oiled leather. Soft and supple. I have 2 pairs of Cobb Hill and I love them for their comfort. Alas, I cannot say the same for this bootie. I ordered my usual 8.5M. The bootie felt like an 8 Narrow. Extremely narrow and somewhat short. I suppose a 9 Wide might fit. Also, the placement of the heel made me feel unstable while walking around the bedroom. I will be returning these.

I absolutely love this shoe, and wish I could buy it in more colors! They're cute and stylish, and most importantly, incredibly comfortable. I wore them almost new to a conference, and spend multiple days walking miles in them- not one blister or mark! Which for my sensitive skin/feet is practically a miracle. Love, love, love.

I typically wear a women’s 10, occasionally veering into 10.5 / 11 sizes. That said, I ordered size 10, medium width and am pleased with the fit! They felt comfortable on first try, and I was surprised that they were big enough to wear thicker socks with, too. The cushioned insole and rubbery heel is a welcome reprieve from hard-soled flats I usually wear. I walk ~5 miles a day to/from work by don’t want to carry a change of shoes to my job— and I’m hoping to use these daily for both traveling to and wearing at work. Per usual, because my size is a bit bigger than the example shown on Zappos, the style is bit blunter/wider than I anticipated. That said, they’re still adorable, comfortable, and practical shoes.

Unbelievably comfortable. I have sensitive feet with a number of problems and it's very difficult to find shoes other than sandals that still feel comfortable after hours of wear. Heel height is perfect and so is the style. Only wish Zappos would stock this model in more wide-width sizes (right now, Size W only comes in black). I had to go up a whole size to make it work.

After ordering 12 prs of shoes, Cobb Hill Aria won the test! I also love Naots for fit but couldn't find the style I wanted. I wanted a comfortable shoe, emphasize comfortable, for a 9 day trip in December where I will be doing a lot of walking. My foot is a problem -- long (size 11 or 12), narrow heel, and bunions! I also wanted a shoe with some style but not too high. I'm already tall! Packing lots of shoes for this trip is out due to a 40 lb weight limit. This shoe will work with skirts, jeans--boot cut or skinny. So...this shoe in the black is comfortable because the leather is a soft suede leather and has some give to it. It fits snug but doesn't hurt and I believe it will stretch out a little. Not sure about the other colors---looks like regular leather which might not have as much give. Might try ordering these in red and see. Anyway, my bunions are happy! The length was perfect in a size 11...like I said sometimes I have to order a 12. The laces will allow me to tighten the fit after the shoe breaks in. It makes my foot look smaller too. But the main reason I kept these is the comfort and style. Thank you Zappos for the impeccable service! You always save the day for me!

I was able to wear these shoes all day long the first day I wore them. It's winter so I had a somewhat heavy sock on. The only thing that's not great for me is the heel--for mobility reasons I would do better with a wider heel. I worry a little about turning my ankle. But so far so good!

The fit and size are right on! The material is comfortable and it is wonderful that the laces offer a change in the fit with socks or tights. I have purchased one pair already, wore them right out of the box, all day, with no discomfort! The best, most comfortable shoes I own. So much so that I immediately ordered another pair as a "back up." Next pair will be brown, when or if they become available.

I already had a pair in a different color, so I knew I loved them and which size to order. I sometimes fit in 9.5 and sometimes 9. These are 9.5 and fit well. These shoes are very comfortable, and the style is versatile.

These are very comfortable boots. The medium width, which is what I normally wear, was too narrow, but the wide width fit perfectly.

Very comfortable, stylish, and goes well with skirts, jeans, and tights. I love them, I have been wearing at work since i recieved them. I have bunions, and it is hard to find comfortable and stylish shoes. These are excellent, and zappos services are outstanding!

I have a very difficult time finding shoes due to my bunion. However these are very stylish, and very comfortable. I feel that the padding is good and equal to that of the Dansko. I would definitely recommend!
