These shoes are simultaneously too big (in the heel) and too tight (over the forefoot). I had to look to see that I hadn't accidentally bought a wide (I hadn't). They look sloppier/more casual in person than online.

This purchase was my second pair of Berries. I have a difficult time with finding a shoe that is wide in the right places and that offers support. I have custom arch supports that fit well in this shoe. Heels are not an option for me, so this shoe goes well with dresses or slacks. I am highly pleased with my purchase.

I love these sandals! I was looking for very comfortable, supportive sandals for a trip to Disney World, and these were perfect. My feet never ached or felt tired, even after hours and hours of walking. And they're cute too! I can wear them with casual and dressier clothes. The arches on some of the orthotic sandals are too high/uncomfortable for me, but these sandals give me just the right amount of support.

These shoes are incredible. I have so many things wrong with my feet - neuropathy, bad arches, you name it. So when these shoes were delivered to me today, I tried them on, hoping against hope that they would fit -- and they feel so good, I don't want to take them off! I bought these for my go-to fall and winter shoe, and I can't wait for the weather to turn cool so I can wear them. Aetrex is a great brand for good quality and support. The arch support is so good that I won't have to wear my orthotics. They're a little pricey for me, but they're worth every penny!

Attractive just didn't fit my foot right. Too narrow in the heel. I was able to get them on, but I wouldn't want to walk long distances in them. Just not right for me, but with Zappos return policy, might as well give them a try since they are so pretty.

I like the style and at first it was fairly comfortable, although a bit tight across the instep buckle. Left them on while in the house and they began to hurt quite a bit where the strap crosses. The strap seems a bit too short and if not for that, may have been a keeper. The leather is soft and there was no rubbing. The width seems fine and the shoe was a good fit, other than the strap. I do have a fairly high arch, so with that info, this may fit someone with a normal or lower arch to their foot. Sadly, not these feet.

Did not fit like the other Aetrex sandals. Hard to walk in on carpet. Wish the foot-bed was removable. Might have worked. If you like a heel, this would be good. I just felt unsure in wearing it.

This is the most comfortable shoe I have ever owned. As a runner arch support is very important to me, plus they are cute enough to wear with skinny jeans. Highly recommend.

I wear between either 8.5 or 9 and I ordered 8.5. This boot fits if I don't use thick socks but it's snug. The problem is that it is tight through the calf and I don't have large calves. I decided to return them even though they appear to be of good quality.

Best shoe ever. Ultra comfortable, great arch support - I didn't need my orthotics thanks to the great insole. I only wish it came in a slightly more dressy version.

I desperately needed an ballet flat for commuting to work that had arch support and enough cushioning for trudging around NYC, while looking polished in skirts and pants. I had high hopes for this shoe, since I love the Aetrex sandals with the orthotic memory foam footbed. When they arrived, they were attractive and had the look I wanted, but I was disappointed that they didn't feel more cushioned in the footbed. The sole felt flat to me, like I was too close to the pavement. However, they were fine. Had the story ended there, they would have rated a solid 3 stars. The real disappointment came about 2 months into using this shoe when complete inexplicably and out of the blue, they gave me such a bad blister during my morning commute that my heel was bleeding by the time I got to work. Since I didn't have anything else to wear instead, I slapped a bandaid on my heel and wore them again the next day when, for some reason, the opposite shoe kept falling off my foot. I had to do a bizarre foot clench/limp to walk the final few blocks to work so I wouldn't lose the shoe (mind you, with the other shoe rubbing up against my bandaged heel). All this drama from my "comfortable" commuting shoes. I wish I could return them, but I've worn them for a few months. No idea why they would turn on me all of a sudden, but now I must resume my search for a decently supportive and attractive ballet flat for commuting in, money in the hole for these now useless shoes. I gave them two stars because they look totally fine, and I did get a couple of good months out of them.

Ordered these to accommodate my neuropathic feet need room in the toes. Ordered an XW but did not do it. Loved the shoe but had to send it back. Love Zappos - extremely fast shipping, great staff - but wish I could find a shoe that would accommodate my toes!

I tried so many stores on and off line. I wear an 11WW and bought the above shoes. They fit well could be a little wider but am finding them comfortable now. If I could get an 11WWW, that would be great, but I don't think you make that size. Otherwise a 12WW might be a possibility. They are well made and flexible.

A great sandal! Comfortable and stylish, just the right heel height for an old fogey like me. The arch support is also very handy to have since I always "slip" off my slides (I'm a klutz, okay?).

I would have loved these shoes but the instep was not very deep and they were tight on the top of my feet. Perhaps an elasticized top or deeper instep would be an improvement.

The padding is very soft, nice cushion. The fabric does provide a lot of stretch but I still felt secure walking in them. My only complaint is that there is a seam on the inside that runs across the side of my baby toe, and it starting digging by the end of the evening. I have a really hard time finding shoes that are wide enough, so I will be looking at this brand in the future.

I love these shoes. They are comfortable and make my size 12 feet look smaller. I have fallen arches and stand all day. When I wear these shoes, my feet are NOT tired at the end of the day. The only drawback is that the Velcro has been rough on the hems of my pants with lighter weight fabrics.

These shoes are so comfortable that I wear them in lieu of slippers. No breaking-in period needed; they're good to go, from the get-go. I would recommend these shoes to anyone who suffer from bunions and hammertoes.

Ditto what previous reviews said about a very plain, not very stylish appearance. It's not so bad, but there are other, cuter shoes out there. Also ditto about the soft leather. They are crazy comfy though, and offer really great inner arch support.

I always wear a size 8M in shoes. After buying the Aetrex Lori and thinking they are the most comfortable sandals I've ever worn, I decided to try the Aetrex Berries Bungee Oxford. I bought them for a trip to Italy that I will be taking. NO go; I will be returning them. They are quite narrow in the forefoot and rub my large toe. I might try the Wide width, because they are a very lightweight, supportive, comfortable shoe, and a slight bit on the rigid side. I just don't believe in "breaking in," shoes at all. They have to feel 100% great right out of the box.
