I love Aquatalia and own several pairs. I had already ordered a pair with very similar style from Nordstrom (Oralie) but wanted to try this one because I liked the 'quilted' styling on the heel a bit better. The two are almost identical (same heel, sole, dimensions etc.). But I noticed that the elastic part of this boot is much less high quality -- just a piece of fabric rather than the much thicker 'quilted' elastic that seem much more durable and seems to have higher craftsmanship. I think the fabric might fray at the ends at the top after a short time; it's also kind of stiff and doesn't conform to my calves as well. I hope Aquatalia is not skimping on the quality material and construction that I love (especially for this price).

I love Aquatalia shoes but these are not comfortable. The foot bed needs to be deeper and the toe box felt too narrow (and I wear narrows!). I wanted them for walking so they definitely won't work. Would probably be OK otherwise. Returning them.

This is an incredibly stylish flat boot - and what I liked most about this vs all others I've tried is that the ankle is narrow enough to fit well under skinny or very straight leg pants. They are also water resistant and while I never 'tested' this out by stepping purposely in a puddle, I did wear them in the rain and they didn't spot (or leak) - so looked great when I got to my destination. I got the black and liked them so much, I was going to get the brown but the brown is a challenging shade and didn't match any of the browns in my closet...so back they went.

I just ordered this boot to replace the Aquatalia Biker Boot that I purchased two years ago and wore out (loved them!). Unfortunately, I cannot get my foot into this style. (Sherry) Called the Vendor directly, and they said "scrunch them down" to get them on. No luck! I do not have an unusual shaped foot, so this must be a design flaw.

Love Aquatalia, Have quite a few pair of shoes and boots. Comfortable/stretchy. The style could be a little more sophisticated. The small opening in front definitely adds to sexy look

This is my third pair of Aquatalia boots and they never disappoint. These particular boots are beautiful in their simplicity, and were comfortable from the first wear. I wear a 9.5 or 10 depending on shoe style/brand, and a 10 in Aquatalia always fits perfectly. They are a little tight, but not uncomfortably so, which tells me that, with wear, they will stretch to be just right. Fantastic purchase!

Great boots. Comfortable right out of the box. Beautiful highest quality leather and finish. You get what you pay for with this boot!

These shoes are very attractive. I wear a size 7 1/2 and based on the reviews I ordered the size 7. The size 7 fits like a wide size 8 shoe.

Shoe seems heavy especially for walking all day. Foot didn't fit down in shoe very well. Like the style but it just didn't work.

Bummer that I have to return them but they just hit wrong. They rub under my ankle bone. Very cute booties though!

Sadly I have to return these. Finally shoes that fit my high arch and narrow heel, but I now have to wear an insert in my right shoe so it makes the shoe too tight.

These boots are beautiful in person. However, they felt a half size smaller than normal. If your foot is on the wider side, I would recommend ordering a half size up.

I love these Aquatalia shoes. I now have them in both black and navy and they are the only shoes that I will travel in. They are so comfortable and easy to wear. I can walk in them all day, they are so comfortable and durable. I added my second pair in another color only recently but the first pair are still like new. I will say that I am usually a size 8 in shoes but took a 7½ in these and they fit perfectly. Also the style is a snug fit. I am not too sure how they would do on very wide feet.

Great style, terrible quality. Thin leather, flimsy footbed, no padding, no arch support, cheap synthetic sole. After one day of work wear - front door to driveway, parking lot to office, normal walking around carpeted office, office to parking lot, driveway to front door - the sole was pitted and visibly worn down at the heel. After careful consideration I decided to keep them because it's very hard to find shoes with a low heel and a style that works for dressy, professional, and casual needs. But I immediately spent $50 to put a good quality sole on them and will need a cushion insert in the toebox. I bought these on sale but they were still seriously over-priced for the quality. They do look great, and feel great as long as you're sitting.

So hard to find the right shoe! I tried on 17 pairs of black shoes before deciding on this one. (Zappos is the best store in the universe!) I usually wear 7 or 7 1/2 and at first I thought this pair was too short. But I kept trying them on with all the other pairs that came in and went back, and they relaxed enough in the right place to now fit just about perfectly. The cut-outs are really pretty and it's a quietly classy shoe. I love the black suede. there's no arch support but I'm only going to wear them occasionally. I've never had this brand before (who can afford it) but I think I'm really going to love this purchase. Too bad I didn't need the red ones - aren't they gorgeous!

Fit is just odd. The footbed itself is narrow, I would say on the slim side of a B width. However, the bands across the toe and instep area are for a wider foot, I would say a C width. So cute, but had to return.

My normal size is 7 1/2 for 90% of shoes out there and I have wide feet, though I frequently squeeze them into normal width shoes due to the lack of selection in wide widths. These sandals are longer than the average 7 1/2, and the strap that runs down the top of the foot bulges up. Surprisingly, they are wide enough for my feet. Because of this I am returning the 7 1/2 I ordered and trying a 7. It is a beautiful and very comfortable shoe, so I hope going a 1/2 size down will solve the problem.

These are stylish and beautiful, but they run very narrow. I wore them for a day and had terrible blisters by the end. I would have returned them had I known ...

These booties are exactly as pictured, very classy and comfortable - the quality is evident! My feet are on the narrow side and I can feel my small toe along the width, but no rubbing or blisters. I ordered my normal size and am able to wear a small heel cup, which is normal for me, not the result of the shoes.

Shoes are beautiful and look stunning on but they run big. Can't really tell on the comfort because they slipped in the front and at the heel. due to the strange sizing, I will not order this brand again and back they go.

Not comfortable. I so wanted to like these cute shoes. I thought it was a size issue so I ordered a different size. I tried them on twice - once at night and once in the morning and no matter what - they were stiff and uncomfortable. Had to return.
