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.

These are typical Arches - cute, classy, comfy and well made. They look better in person than in the pictures. I'm very pleased. They're also on sale now so go for it.

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.

Fabulous shoes, very comfortable and stylish. I receive lots of compliments when I wear them. I own many of the Arche shoes and boots because of their comfort and casual elegance -- also they look good for a long time.

I love this brand but disappointed in this shoe. If you don't mind having circles on your feet when you remove these shoes then buy them. Perhaps this will change when I break them in. The design should be improved. I like the Arche shoe with more support when walking. Arche should make their shoes in half sizes as the open toe is sometimes too long. My favorite Arche shoe is open toe, it has leather around the elastic and wears so well. They discontinued this style and replaced it with another shoe that has elastic and doesn't hold up as well. I wish Zappos would carry more styles in Arche.

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.

This is my third pair of Arche. I purchased my first pair in the lime green Exor style and loved them. Then I ordered the Exyna in Carmine unbuckle and another Exor in black nubuck. While shopping the site, I noticed a pair of Munro in a tan that looked very similar to the Exor - but about half the price! My mistake, I ordered them. They arrived, were far too narrow (I ordered a medium width as usual). And the quality of leather and workmanship was nowhere close to the Arche. I love bargains, but in this case, you get what you pay for. The Munro pair is being returned and another pair of Arche has been ordered.

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!

These Arche shoes, size 6 are perfect for me, who typically wears a size 6.5. They felt comfortable right out of the box (which not too many shoes do) I tried these after a disappointing experience with the Sesto Meucci Evonne (where the 6 was too small and the 7 too big)!

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.

These are wonderful shoes. I'm a 1/2 size so ordered the size down as well as the size up. There is a zipper in the back with a leather lining that protects your foot from feeling the zipper or any seam and it's wonderful. There's no arch support so I added a heal and arch support and it fills extra space in the shoe for my narrow foot and feels like I'm walking on a cloud. Going on a 3 week vacation with lots of walking and these will be my every day shoes making for happy feet!

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.

Love this shoe. Fits perfectly. But be careful. Arches uses two very different lasts. In my case one is always just right, the other just wrong.
