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.

Arche is superb! Very Euro looking. So comfortable. I have very narrow ankles with a wide toe area. Arche shoes fit fantastically and are the most comfortable shoes around.

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.

These are fabulous -- except the elastic over the arch is too tight. If you have a high arch, it might be too too tight. But these are great for walking on cobblestones or uneven pavement. They're the only platforms I find that have both height and are flexible.

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!

I bought these shoes to wear with jeans. They were very pricey but I took the plunge! They are probably the most comfortable sandals I have due to the give of the suede uppers. However there is no "give" in the heel. If you have to walk all day in these I would not recommend but if you are in and out, sitting, etc. they will be fine. Probably not worth the high price tag but I kept them anyway…plus have received lots of compliments!
