I wanted to keep this shoe...it is beautiful and I love Arche style...but the rubber bottom is so squishy that when you walk your step wobbles...and the sole is so heavy the shoe falls off your foot. Sadly back it goes.

This is a beautiful and comfortable shoe. You would think the wedge sole would make it heavy or awkward but that is not so. It is very soft and steady for walking. In an accident I ruined a pair of Arche loafers with this sole years ago and have regretted ever since that they could not be replaced. So glad to see this wedge returning.

These are my favorite summer shoes. I walk a lot in the city so need something sturdier than flip flops. I and go through through 2-3 every summer and while they are not inexpensive they are worth the cost.

These are simply great shoes. So comfortable, even on my difficult to please feet. Wedge gives a good boost in height yet very stable, and they look fabulous day or night. Perfect for travel. I understand that they are rain resistant...will find out during my week in London.

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 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.

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.

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

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.

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.

The Arche Satia is expensive but worth it. Not only is it elegant and chic, but unbelievably comfortable. I love these sandals and highly recommend.

I have several pair of Arche shoes and boots, so I ordered these in my usual size. I could barely get my foot into these! They were not only too short, but super narrow in the toe box, which is odd for Arche. I would say they were a full size smaller than my other Arche shoes. The top of the shoe is shaped strangely, as well...at least on my foot. The "u" of the top did not sit at the center of my foot top, but was skewed to one side. These went back to Zappos.

This is a super comfortable shoe. While not exactly 'jazzy', it's not as matronly as the picture shows it to be. I've been buying Arche shoes for close to 20 years and the quality is outstanding. Definitely thinking of getting another pair of these in one of the bright, groovy colors they come in!
