Awful, no structure, no arch support. I splurged on Arche shoes because I thought they'd be good walking shoes. Wrong. They're comfortable if you're not walking. Save your money. I will - this was a mistake I won't make again.

Loved the style of the shoe, but it was just too high on my ankle and wanted to rub a spot Even with thin socks, I could tell they were not even going to get me a half day traipsing around Paris. Sorry, back they go.

I am on my feet all day - teaching first graders, and I have terrible feet. It is very difficult to find shoes to wear all day that don't hurt. These are a saving grace for me. So comfortable right out of the box and comfortable all day long! Worth every penny!

I would have this shoe in many colors if they made half sizes. I am truly between a 39 and 40. I've purchased other Arche styles in half sizes. Love this shoe, but can not buy more of these - too loose in length or too short. Dommage!

I am on my feet all day and Arche shoes allow me to look stylish -- they feel like walking on cotton. They also last a few years of heavy use looking great. I wash them and they come out like new -- I also clean the heel with a bit of oil.

I bought these for a trip to France. They served me so well that they've become my everyday summer shoe. Very comfortable, flexible and the wide elastic straps stretch for a perfect fit even if your ankles are swollen. Very pricey but totally worth it. 4 months in and the unbuckled still looks pristine -- I have the tan/black style.

Here's the thing. I bought this shoe in a beautiful dark red color to wear walking around New York City all day. Fabulously comfortable but the leather is so soft, like butter, that the booties looked beaten to a pulp two weeks later. Too fragile for reality.

These were beautiful, however when compared to the Munro, the teeny difference did not warrant the higher price. When side by side, the Munro heel is more substantial.

I'm afraid these will have to go back. The sole is very heavy and flips against your foot as you walk. They don't feel stable enough to me either, so back they have to go. Cute though!

Great shoes, beautiful colors, comfy fit -- which for me meant going up a size instead of down. Usually wear 8 1/2 M in closed flats but no way could I wear an 8 in these; size 9 fits fine for me.

I have this shoe in five colors and would buy more. I am on my forth pair of black, which is my go-to, everyday shoe. These shoes are really comfortable for me as they have an arch support which is uncommon in ballet flats. Also the nubuck is soft and conforms to the foot. I love the fact that if they start to look scruffy, I just take them to the sink, gently wet and use a soft toothbrush over the surface and ,Voila, good again. I will warn that when new, they will leave dye marks on your feet or stockings. Other than that, they are perfect.

Yes, true that this shoe feels wonderfully soft and doesn't rub or chafe. However, compared with the Munro American 'Abby' this leather is flimsy, much too flexible and too stretchy such that after a number of wearings the shoe may not fit. I'll stick with the Abby in the right size, thank you.

These are immediately comfortable and I feel very stable walking in these. I think they will work well on the cobblestones during our European trip this summer. The back strap is high but it has not bothered me.

Coughed a little at the price of these especially since I am the "princess and the pea" with feet and can't seem to find anything comfortable or supportive enough to wear for any length of walk, but holy cow these are worth every penny! Walked a lot one evening on vacation wearing these for the first time and not one blister or problem with them. Very trendy with maxi shirts/dresses or palazzo pants too. So comfortable and no slipping around on my narrow flat feet. I could take normal strides. Some color came off on my heels from the straps but that was minor compared to the comfort of these shoes.

Purchased these in black for a business trip. Very comfortable and suitable for business meetings and casual wear. Good fit in my normal size. I added an insert for additional arch support. My only complaint is that the black color of the shoe bled onto my feet. The weather was warm, so my feet did perspire; however, color should not bleed on shoes of this quality. This was a nuisance -- I had to wash the color off my feet before changing into different shoes/sandals. Since the shoe is made of perforated nubuck, it is perfect for warm weather, but beware of the color transfer.

I love Arche and own several. They are extremely comfortable, and fit my narrow, achy, hard to fit feet. I ordered this style in dove gray and love them. The black shoes are frayed and look like seconds. They are going back!

I needed a walking shoe for NYC and these were perfect, light weight, great collar and very comfortable. Love them.

Amazing comfort The Arche brand is truly unique in softness and comfort. The Exor is a stylish all-day shoe. I put it to the test walking several miles out of the box on the first day. Slight rubbing on the toes after more than 8 hours and a couple of twists of the heel were the worst case scenario. Invisible arch supports can easily lend more support if needed. Overall a 4 star, not a 5 because of these issues at this price.

Oh my goodness, I LOVE these shoes. They are stylish and comfortable. The leather upper stretches, so causes no issue for my bunion, and yet holds on so my feet don't slip. These are pricy shoes to be sure, but they are absolutely worth it.

Just got my Arche shoes. I love them! They are soft and stylish. I wear a size 8 and they fit just right. I am so happy with the color and everything about this shoe. I did buy the Munro in the same, similar shoe, they are a little cheaper but I am very happy with my Arche shoe.

Love the color as it goes with everything! Comfortable from the first steps. I wear size 7 1/2 or 8 and the 39 fit perfectly.
