I've had to transition to comfort shoes due to a back issue. I've tried many brands and styles that were either uncomfortable or just seemed geriatric and aesthetically unappealing. I didn't have high expectations for Naot's Kata, but am I ever happy I decided to give them a try. I'm not accustomed to arch support so in the beginning my arches ached when I wore them. I found I had to break them in by wearing them for short periods while gradually increasing the wear time. It was worth the time and effort because they conformed to my foot and now I can walk all day in them. I am amazed by how many compliments I receive from complete strangers when wearing these. Not just from ladies in my 50 year old age group, but from women in their 20'smand 30's! I volunteer as a tour guide in my historic home city. Recently two women in my group approached me at the end of the tour to ask where they could get these shoes. They got out their phones, went to Zappos, and purchased them while we were standing in the gift shop. I adore the way the Kata looks and feels on my feet. They have a kind of sassy appeal that suits my artsy/boho style. They're definitely casual, but you can pull off chic casual without a problem. I now own six pairs of the Kata and only wish they came in more colors! For reference I wear a 9 - 9.5 and have a medium to slightly narrow foot. I ordered the 40 M and they are a perfect fit.

I'd also recommend: Born

I LOVE THESE SHOES!!! I have very "difficult" feet. I don't normally like flats because they either don't have enough support or are not cute. However, these shoes are cute, comfortable and stylish. I normally wear a 7N and have very bony ankles. I bought size 37 and they fit perfectly. Most shoes that wrap around the ankle are very uncomfortable, but not these. They are super comfortable right out of the box. There is plenty of room in the toe box for feet of normal width, and the ankle straps allow the top part to adjust to fit all ankle sizes. I bought them in beige and the color is absolutely perfect. It goes with everything. I look forward to many years of wearing these shoes for daily wear and travel.

After wearing this shoe on a trip involving lots of walking on uneven, dusty, cobblestones, I will choose it every time for my "go to" comfort shoe. Additionally, it cleans up with a little soapy water and a light brushing with a fingernail brush. The best shoe ever!

I love these shoes! This is my first real pair of "comfort" shoes. (I have another pair of Naot sandals that I've worn on European trips but haven't used them when I'm not traveling abroad.) I was really worried about comfort shoes looking unfashionable, but these are actually quite cute on. The front of the shoe still looks slightly clunky to me, but it's not bad. The side and the back of the shoe are extremely cute and fashionable. I've received multiple compliments on the shoes. The best part about this shoe is the comfort factor -- I never had to break it in, and wore it for an entire long work day (and I stand at my standing desk for hours a day) and my feet felt very comfortable throughout. I also love that this has good support for my feet. I bought it in the nude color and love it so much that I'm going to purchase it in the black too! This ran true to size for me, and I was able to get a comfortably secure fit by tying the laces tightly and double knotting them so the laces didn't come undone. I'd highly recommend this shoe.

Super cute - not a sandal and not a shoe! Kata is a very unique shoe = also it is from Naot, a brand that is known for true comfort. I wear a six and 37 always works in this brand. As a high school teacher I am on my feet all day - discipline by proximity. Are Naot shoes worth the price - just ask my feet? Years of wearing pointed toe/high (4") heels have done their damage to my old feet. This brand makes shoes for real people with real feet. Kata will look great with everything, from pants, skirts, and dresses. The neutral color is a plus - but I am checking out the black.

I'd also recommend: Naot, Born, Reicker, Mephisto - I love shoes!
