At first try-on, they seem snug for an 8½W, but the leather is so nice and the shoes are so well-made, that the feeling passed quickly. I am looking for comfortable, stylish walking shoes for an upcoming trip to Europe and I feel as though these fit the bill, being made by New Balance. I was expecting a brighter red from the picture, but the true burgundy/oxblood that the shoes are, is quite suitable for fall.

It's probably best to go a half size up on this boot. It has a nice soft interior lining, but I didn't really like anything else about it. I didn't like it enough to exchange it for a half size up because of the style. It's a bulky boot, and makes the foot and leg look wider than it is, with the lines going across it. I kind of figured that might happen, just by looking at it on the website, but I wanted to try it anyway.

Best fitting shoe ever! And that's from a pair of size 10.5/2A feet for which I have terrible problems finding shoes. Love the look, feel, fit of these. Getting a back-up pair right away. New Balance/Avaron had better keep making these types of shoes in my size. I feel like I've hit the jackpot!

Love these sandals. They are very comfortable. I have all sorts of foot issues and I was able to wear these sandals all night with no problems!

I stand for 8 hours at my job; by hour 4, my feet would start to ache. Yesterday, I tried on a pair of these shoes and they felt wonderful! This is amazing...I have wide feet and bunions too. Shoes usually hurt until I break them in. Today, 8 hours later...my feet feel tired, but don't ache. I highly recommend Aravon Farrens.

I needed a walking shoe that would fit with my orthotics for a trip to Paris. This shoe fits 1/2 size larger, even with orthotics. For a walking shoe, it's a very nice looking suede walking shoe and very comfortable!

Aravons are great! They are made by New Balance. I have had plantar fasciitis three times and am now flat footed with weak ankles. I am 64. It is no fun and not worth buying shoes that just look good with an outfit. I have now learned my lesson that arch and ankle support are a must with these foot problems. Luckily, New Balance which also makes Aravon knows how to do it right. They make shoes/sneakers with style, and support (roll bars and good arches) that in my opinion, are not beaten by any other footwear company. I do buy half a size bigger than I measure when I get Aravons or New Balance athletic shoes and then it is perfection for me. You may pay more buying New Balance or Aravon but truly they will last longer, provide you with comfort and quality, and not look like old lady shoes. You will notice comfort as soon as you put them on. Sometimes you can get them on sale too. Amazon will notify you of sales if you give them your email. I, and my feet, could not be more pleased with Aravon shoes. I own two pairs and am ordering my third.

This is my third pair of these sandals. I practically live in them. With three adjustments, they are easily adjusted to my feet. Also, they are very comfortable. I will buy them again.

I bought an Aravon shoe and it fit perfectly, but this one was short. Also the strap on one of the shoes was poorly made and it rubbed against my foot and was uncomfortable.

I need the width in the toe box to accommodate my orthodics. But the heel cup was also so very wide that I could not keep the shoe on my foot. Unfortunately I am returning it.

I am so sad, as I love the shoe and the way it felt on my feet, but the chemical used inside the shoe (made overseas) was so strong on both colors that I bought, it caused the top of my feet and around the top sides to break out in a rash and very itchy. Had to return them and am upset that when you pay that price for a shoe why can't it be made in the USA which has never caused a problem with my skin. But every time I get a New Balance shoe with a dark color made overseas I end up at the dermatologist.

My first thought after trying these on was my how comfortable these are! Now lets hope they fit, and they did. Wondered why with my narrow long feet I had not heard of these. Looked closer at the box and saw they are by New Balance. Now I know why they fit. So far very happy with this purchase. We will see how I feel after vacationing in them.

I wear a 12EE and it's very difficult to find shoes that are truly wide enough. These are perfect! So comfortable, plenty of space in the toe box, and very cute.

I ordered these shoes in a 7.5 because of other reviews saying these run big (I am usually an 8). The 7.5 fit well in the length but I ordered a regular width and these were much too narrow. Comfy and cute, but the toe is just a bit too pointed for me. I liked these shoes and considered reordering a wide size but I think I will keep looking. They are a good shoe, just not for me.

I recently bought these shoes in an 8D. They are true to size, very stylish, smart, and comfortable. I have many pairs of Aravon shoes and was so pleased to see this lovely snake print in white and tan. The white is not a pure white but rather a soft off-white. They still match my white pants and skirts. Love.

Wonderful shoe, my 3rd pair. I have very narrow heels and sensitive feet and these are very comfortable and wear well. They look good. Forefoot padding is excellent, straps are really adjustable and arch support is okay.

Absolutely gorgeous and seemed like they would be the perfect shoe until I walked five steps in them. IMMEDIATE and SEVERE heel blisters on BOTH sides of BOTH feet! Maybe I have weird-shaped feet, but this was abject torture!

These are incredibly comfortable and I love that the insert is removeable. I have full length custom orthotics so I can switch them out if I know I'll be on my feet a lot.

Unfortunately I had to wear these 2x to figure out they were a problem, so I won't return them. I buy tons of shoes and clothing from Zappos and like 99% of it. Just wanted to warn others the sole is like a rocking chair! It is totally round, more so than any Earth Shoe I have ever owned. It gave me sharp hip pain after 1 day. Waited a week and wore them again, the sharp pain was back by 3PM. So sorry I spent $75 on these! They are also tight, and not very attractive. I do not recommend this shoe. New Balance did not come through with this one.

This is an update to a review I wrote about a week ago. I love the shoe but it is tight around the toes, it's not wide enough. I'm really sorry I didn't get them a half size bigger. Another very important point, I mentioned that you can take out the insert and use your own, but if you don't, the insert that comes with this sandal/shoe is so warm, it's soft, but my foot gets SO hot that I have to take off the shoes every time I sit down. :(

Very comfortable and nice looking shoe. I have been suffering back, knee, ankle, and foot pain. I was told the burning, needling pain in my feet was diabetic nerve pain, but was not diagnosed with diabetes. The foot doctor said neuropathy. He recommended New Balance shoes. This sandal is made by New Balance and offers the same footbed construction. Three adjustable straps allows me to adjust the shoe to my foot.
