The Taos Stellar are really cute booties. Unfortunately they are a bit too flat and you have to double tie the shoe strings so they do not come untied. The bonus is that I can use my Orthotics in the booties. These are great with jeans.

I would have kept these but the ball of my left foot felt like it wanted more cushion than this shoe provided. I had bunion surgery two years ago and have little flexibility in that joint. Otherwise The arch and heel felt great. The hugged my foot just perfectly and didn't interrupt my stride. The leather was soft and of a quality I'd expect in a shoe at this price. I wish they would have worked for my feet and 10 hour standing work days.

Very comfortable, cute, slipper-like shoe. True to size, but had to return because the arch support "bump" is further forward than my arch curve.

Love it. I got taos Samba a while back in red- it was a splurge but it was just the most gorgeous shoe I couldn't help it, and glad I did. This shoe has the same lower-half construction, so I knew what to expect in terms of fit and feel. It's not super soft or padded, but excellent quality and very comfortable. I love that it has the look of a heel, but really doesn't feel like a heel and only adds a bit more an an inch of height. Being a tall woman (6 ft), this is important to me. I bought a similar pair to this a while back, wanting this same feminine black oxford look for slightly dressy occasions, versatile to wear with almost anything-- and that pair, although also adorable, just had too much of a heel to be practical and I don't wear them often. These I can walk in comfortably, my feet don't hurt at the end of the day, and I don't feel like I'm towering over people. Much more practical and still super cute and dressy. Hooray! Worth the investment.

Beautiful shoe, mink color is very contemporary. Problem: toe box of shoe is shaped for big toe being the longest. My second toe is the longest, so it bumps the top of the shoe. Returning for 1/2 size larger because I love the shoe!

I ordered this show based on (albeit only two reviews at the time) the high rating on support. I found this show to have zero arch support, I do have high arches but this shoe I could place a finger between the space of the support and my arch. I also found the heal on the shoe very "tippy" and saw an ankle twist waiting to happen. It is a cute shoe but I have to rate this per my experience.

I bought these in pewter and they are very cute shoes. I love the support too! I am going to Disney in a few weeks and want something supportive but not clunky looking. While I haven't trekked everywhere yet, I have a feeling I will be very pleased. I do wish they made 1/2 sizes though. I usually wear a 8.5 in sandals and that would have been the perfect fit. I went down to an 8 and the length fits well but I could use a few more cm of strap length so you didn't see the velcro...but they work.

These shoes were very cute and comfortable, but I couldn't get over the fact that the rhinestones stop for the "taos" on the strap. Unless you're looking closely, it just looks like the stones have fallen off. I returned and bought the same style shoe from Taos in pewter.

I have searched quite a while for a comfortable heeled shoe with a strap. I've never ordered shoes on line because the likelihood of buying just what I wanted, without trying on, seemed impossible. I think one day Zappos just popped up, with something close to what I wanted. I was so excited to visit the site and find what appeared to be several shoes in my category! First, I have foot problems, with one foot often in pain or cramps, due to a nerve problem. Also, as I've gotten older, it seems if I get my necessary size, the heel slips when I walk. I held my breath and tried them on, and presto, it seemed a mirace! I know this is dramatic, but to find a shoe with strap, that looks cute, and not "too old lady", and feels fabulous, is an answer to prayer! I soon will be browsing your site again for a brown pair and possibly a navy, if that is possible. LOVE my shoes!

Comfy, cute, the strap width is just right, and I love velcro closing. Sizing is generous. I really like the slightly distressed grey leather, with the antiqued pewter buttons. I am new to Taos shoes, but just ordered a pair of boots that are also very comfy and casual.

I love the way these shoes look and really wanted to keep them. I even ordered them in different sizes to try to get the right fit. I typically wear a 7.5/8. After trying on an 8 in a local store, and finding it tight, I decided to try out several sizes on Zappos (8.5 & 9). They have a very similar fit to clogs: tight on the toe, loose in the back. I couldn't get the balance right so that they fit the front and back of my foot equally well. Other reviewers also mentioned this issue. They also reminded me of clogs in terms of their hardness. They were very uncomfortably hard. And yet they also ran narrow; when I tried to add a more cushiony insole, the ball of my foot was squeezed in all the sizes I tried. I finally had to send them back! Such a shame. I would not recommend this shoe to people with "problem" feet as you will likely have a hard time getting a comfortable fit.

This the 4th pair of this style I purchased this year. They are the "best" shoes ever. Comfortable. Great Fit. True to Size. Worth the money. Can wear all day and not tired feet. Love being able to adjust both straps.

I waited for the Samba back in stock in my size and immediately bought these when they were available. I've never owned a Taos shoe but agree with all of the other 5-star reviews! These shoes have plenty of room in the toe box, offer great support (especially for a heel!), and are stylish as well! The leather is very high quality and doesn't scuff. I will definitely be buying more of this brand.

I absolutely love these sandals. They're extremely comfortable and stylish. I've gotten many compliments on them. Have several pair in different colors.

These shoes are just perfect for my foot. It has enough room for my arthritic toes and, yet a narrow heel for my previously narrow feet. I love it and will, eventually, get it in more colors.

Leather is very nice; however, boot fits very awkwardly. Toe box needs more height so leather top of boot doesn't rub top of toes or squeeze toes. Heel also slips as the foot never stays in place. Unfortunately, need to return this boot.

I was disappointed that the Sienna color looks more brown whereas on the site it looks more reddish. The shoe was comfortable, but the toe box seemed shallow and was pressing down on my big toes. I felt a size up would be too large.

This is a well-made, quality shoe. For me the toe box was a bit narrow and slightly rubbed he inside of my big toe, so they have to go back. If you have slimmer toes this might be perfect for you. The support was excellent.

This is a shoe that will appeal to a very specific audience. I am looking for comfort, so decided to try. It's too flat-footed, too old fashioned looking, too "hippy-ish" for me.

These shoes are very comfortable even after a long day. I usually have difficulty with med widths and need wider shoes, but these are just right. Wish they had more colors as I would buy more of this style. Just as good with pants as they are with dresses.

Love these shoes! Comfortable and easy to wear. Will definitely buy another pair when the time comes. Usually wear an 8.5 but had to get these shoes in a size 8. Thank you Zappos for free returns so I could get a better size.
