Love all of my ARA shoes and was specifically looking for this brand.Loved the look, but with high insteps, the flap rubbed my ankle, so back they come...

I thought this shoe was really cute, but the top cut into my skin when I walked and was uncomfortable, so I returned them.

These are nice classic loafers, like a penny loafer but with a little more drama in that Neverending Story-like emblem on top. Very comfortable too. The leather is good quality and soft, and the shoes are neither too tight in the toes or too loose in the heels (typical problems I have with most shoes). The insole doesn't provide much support, but they're fully removeable and can be replaced with an orthotic.

I have these shoes in a hard sole, in this size and I love them. They are worn out, hence my needing another pair. These are too tight in the toe box.

These shoes are very beautiful but SUPER narrow. I could not even get my feet into them-- had to send them back. They don't come in W sizes. If you have wide feet, or anything other than very narrow, these shoes are not for you.

Super comfortable shoe with excellent footbed support. However, the sides of the shoe bump up against the bottom of my ankles and rub. Sadly have to return them.

Heel wasn't high enough & I have a fused ankle.

Just received these boots, & I'm very impressed! They are light-weight, stylish & very comfortable. I love the material. The full length zipper made getting them on & off, quick & easy. I have skinny calves & they fit perfect. I live in Florida, so I didn't buy them for warmth or walking on snow or ice. The heel height is perfect, as I dislike totally flat heels. They are flexible & soft, but stand up great, without slouching. I wore them with skinny jeans & felt very chic.

I usually wear an 11 1/2 medium but, depending on the cut of the shoe, the bunion on my left foot sometimes causes a problem. These shoes were fine; very comfortable as far as width and support. It's a very pretty blue for Spring, will look great with jeans or casual pants. I plan to wear them flying to Europe next month as they are easy to slip on and off and yet still look stylish. Altogether, I am very happy with this purchase.

Attractive shoe. Elastic fit my foot well. Didn't seem to have enough a high enough arch to support my foot, though. Will have to keep looking.l

The shoes I received are stamped 8; however they are much larger than that. Please check the ones you send to ensure they are actually size 8.

I loved the look and feel of this boot BUT the calf is definitely not as stretchy as advertised. I don't have tiny calves but they're not gigantic either. I was finally able to zip them up on my bare skin but that was with a struggle and then it felt like a tourniquet. I'm sad that I have to return them but hopefully I find a pair like them but with a wider calf.

I ordered these and the Bella, and while I usually go for a full rubber sole, I kept these and returned the Bella. The Bel is more youthful and the small heel elevates the shoe to paraphrase another reviewer, they look more expensive than they are. I really needed something for interviews and more formal days at work, and am avoiding heels due to a recent injury. These really fit the bill and I think they are dressy enough to wear with a skirt or dress.

Very comfortable. I take one star away for the glittery area at the top. I'm not one for that but the rest of the shoe is great. The leather is soft. The zipper, which was another feature I thought was just for looks and a little iffy in the style front, is actually very handy. No need to unlace!

These boots are fabulous & so comfy. My feet never hurt. My feet felt as they do, after a day in comfy sneakers. Love the little heel and sleek design. The shaft was very flexible. I wore them in NY. Walked over 15k steps per day for an entire week.

Great shoe. Attractive and comfortable right out of the box. You can dress it up or dress it down.

These boots are comfortable right out of the box and super cute. However, I do not like the laces. They are long and slippery and came undone while just trying these out in the house. I will exchange for a zipper model.

I was all set to really love this shoe based on the reviews I read, but i thought it looked a little matronly when I tried it on because of top of the shoe covered quite a bit of the top of my foot. The shoe is comfortable, although it was about a half size short for me...however, I am finding that in all the brands of ballet flats that I have tried, so maybe it is my problem and the not the shoe sizing.

I was all set to love this shoe based on other reviews, but when I tried it on, I thought it looked fairly matronly because the top of the shoe covers much more of the top of the foot and somehow that is less fashionable. The shoe is comfortable, although it seemed shorter than my usual size 10. I found that was true with all three brands that I tried in this type of flat, so it may just be me.
