These shoes are very comfortable! The soles feel like they are massaging my foot with the soft footbed and the high arch support. They remind me of custom made shoes and feel nice and wide. The leather is great quality. The sling back requires zero break-in and the Velcro strap can adjust the tightness. I like the design and feel like they will go well with skirts or pants, too.

Well, I started with the medium width - I am in between a reg and width width - not wide really, but sometimes like the extra room allowed by a wide. Well, I could not even get my foot into the wide. These are extremely narrow shoes so I cannot speak about the quality or style or comfort as I could not even fit them on my feet. So beware if you have wide feet you will not be able to wear these. Yikes!

Who's that girl w/the SKINNY legs? That'd be me. Tried several pairs only to have to return some beauties. The Zappos description and the noted 13 1/2" circumference were right on. Thanks Zappos!

My feet were not happy. They were too short and too tight. My feet aren't that chunky either. There is a nice big structured insole that if it works for your feet would be wonderful.

I love these boots! They make me so happy. The stretchy fabric on the back fits great, whether over bare legs or over jeans. They are warm and waterproof but not too warm to be worn indoors all day.

The strap around the heel was about 1.5 inches too short to reach the velcro...another reviewer mentioned it but I didn't believe it was possible. Apologies to the other reviewer. Too bad too, because it feels like they would be super comfortable.

I have a lot of foot problems. It started in 2006 with plantar fasciitis. I started wearing shoes with very good arch support and it improved, but another problem developed. I now suffer from plantar fat pad atrophy. Since I have a very flexible foot, I am in near constant foot pain. One more foot problem: my feet and ankles really retain water when I travel. I bought these shoes for a trip to a tropical location where I knew I would have problems with retaining water. These shoes were really awesome! I have worn them around town and love the comfort. I took them on vacation but was not able to wear them because when my feet were swollen, the Velcro band could not fasten. If the ankle strap was a little longer they would be perfect. Having said that, I believe that it is not a problem most people would have.

I bought these shoes for a trip to a tropical location where I knew I would have problems with retaining water. These shoes were really awesome! I only had one day with a little foot pain. On that day we were walking through the rainforest on extremely uneven ground. Yes, my feet did swell and because of the style/fit of the shoe they still fit. The upper part of the shoe just covers the toe so along with the Velcro strap there was room for my foot to grow. I will buy this shoe again.

These shoes are quite simply amazing! I honestly can say this is one of the few pairs of shoes that I don't feel the need to tear off my feet at the end of the day (and I usually remove my shoes as soon as I get into my car at the end of the work day because I just hate the feeling of shoes strapped to my feet all day)... but these are different! They wear like slippers. They are extremely light weight and comfortable. You almost forget you are wearing shoes! I have plantar fasciitis and wearing the right shoes, with good arch support, makes all the difference in the world. I'm now looking to try some of their other styles because I have been so impressed with this pair! I want it in multiple colors!

These are truly one of the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. It's like wearing slippers to work! I'm able to wear them with or without socks and they look good. I ordered the blue and they look good with with about everything I wear.

This is a great, stylish boot. I have smaller calves and this boot fits perfect. I have waited a long time to find such a wonderful pair of boots. The fabric and leather are a nice contrast.

Given the reviews, I think I expected too much. These are nice and fairly comfortable, but my slightly narrow feet slide around and the arch wasn't high enough for me.

These are nice shoes. They fit a little small. They did not feel good on me. I ordered a 7 because there were no half sizes. I normally wear a 7½. The height of the toe area is a little short. There is too much arch support for me.

I have worn Aetrex for years but couldn't find my size in the style I like so I tried Zappos for the first time. It was an excellent experience and I love the shoes. They are great for people like me who have difficulty with buckles and other fasteners and the support is great. They will accommodate custom orthotics too. The ones I have bought in the past have lasted for years. Sometimes the Velcro wears out but I have gotten it replaced at the shoe shop.

This boot is better looking in person. I like the color contrast. I wear a wide and it was too narrow.

Fabulous boots for walking! They are as comfortable as my running shoes and so much more stylish for casual wear. I have wide feet and have difficulty finding cute, comfortable shoes but these are wonderful in fit and in style!

I always order a 7B (med.), but this shoe felt too short in the toe box. If I had exchanged it for a 7.5, I think it would have been slipping off my foot, because I have a narrow heel. Had to send it back.

I really wanted to love these because they have the exact look I wanted. But they were too narrow on my already narrow feet. In addition, the sole at the very front of the left boot was attached crookedly in comparison to the right boot. Too expensive to overlook the obvious error. So, bye-bye, boots.

The shoe is uncomfortable. I bought the medium width and it is so wide my heel slips up and down and I can't use my orthotics in them because they are visible at the sides. At this price I expect comfort.

I'm exhausted after trying on so many shoes, but as soon as I put this one on my foot, I knew it was the winner. I ordered 5 pairs total of similar styles (Fitzwell: Jules and Garland, Born: Jem and Aetrex: Amy and Kailey). Both Aetrex were far more comfortable than the others (as well as all the shoes I tried on at DSW over the weekend). This one was easier to put on and cuter than the Amy. I have rheumatoid arthritis, so my feet are pretty picky and need support and cannot be squeezed. I wouldn't say I have wide feet, but my bunions have grown a tiny amount and some of the other shoes were tight across the widest part of my foot. Tried them on with skinny jeans, short skirts with tights and dress pants and they looked good with all. Wouldn't normally opt for a shoe like this for dress pants, but I have to give a professional talk somewhere really cold and didn't want to wear flats. Of course I haven't worn them out, so I can't vouch for wear, but they feel like they'll wear really well.

I love these very cute shoes. They run a little short so I would recommend ordering a half size larger. I had to return them as they did not work with what I needed them for at this time. I may reorder.
