The nine is just a tad too small and the 9 1/2 a tad too big, but I would definitely keep them. They are stylish and comfortable, but the suede looked old when the shoes came in and I've only worn them around the house for a few hours and the shoes look like I've had them for 6 months. i have seen this problem in other suede shoes and don't know what to do about it. I'd like to keep them, but they don't look new...and will no doubt look OLD very soon. I know ARCHE has found a way for suede to look good for years, but Arch is so soft they no longer flatter my old feet.

This is the cutest shoe!! I love love love it. But it was just a little too narrow. And they don't offer it in wide. Sadly, I will be returning this pair of shoes.

I recently had ankle/foot surgery and needed a comfortable flat to wear as I transition from my walking boot. I went up a half-size so I wouldn’t need to squeeze into them with my still slightly swollen foot. These will fit the bill! They are beautiful, well constructed and comfortable.

These are so disappointing. It’s not even good leather if it’s leather at all. When you rub the toe of the outside it bubbles up like it’s going to tear. The boot is lined with faux fir if yoy like that for cooler weather. Would not recommend these to anyone.

I've just bought my second pair of these boots. The first pair lasted seven years. They are the most comfortable boots I've ever had. They are warm, but not bulky, and look good with both pants and skirts.

I have to say felt true to size because there is not a category for "roomy." They are not TOOO big, but they are roomier than other 9 and a halfs. I could probably fit into the 9s but these do stay on my feet (which is a big deal because many shoes that are comfortable in the front of my foot are too big in the heel. In this case, without any pinch, they stay on my heel) . and I was in them for a whole day (trying them out around the house) and they were very comfy.

Really like these, however, difficult to see that they are blue unless you hold them next to black. Very dark dark blue.

The sizing was good,left shoe felt a bit snug, but my left foot is somewhat larger than my right foot. This is a beautiful shoe and i am very pleased with this selection as I was looking for a dressy low heel shoe.

Shoes fit and look great. Size bought was 11.5; I usually wear an 11, but sometimes need larger. Love the square toe style. Comfort is good, except I find the ball section of the sole to be somewhat hard (not enough cushioning). Still, will keep them. Great price. Quick confirmation and shipping.

This shoe is really cute, but I wear a size 7 and this pair had to be at least a 9 (even though the shoe says its a 7). I could easily fit two fingers between my heel and the back of the shoe. I think this pair must be mis-marked, so I am returning them to Zappos. Since the shoes did not come in a box, I'm guessing I'm not the first person to have discovered this problem. Hopefully, Zappos does not keep sending this pair of shoes out to customers wanting a size 7.

Only Zappos knows how many dozens of boots I ordered before finally finding this perfect pair. I was on a quest for a low-heel, comfortable, stylish walking boot that looked decent with my stick legs. They will be the shoes I take to Italy.

I'm not sure if I was sent a mislabled box as the size on the outside said both 8 and 10, and these shoes were huge on my feet. I usually wear between a 7.5 and an 8 and went for an 8 because of the comment on the 7.5 toe box being tight. It was a shame because it was otherwise a really nice looking shoe with great padding. I may order another pair in the 7.5 as the SOFT shoes that I kept instead have been making a very odd noise when I walk.

I had to send the first pair back to order a half size smaller. I am between a 9 and a 9.5. The toebox is sufficiently wide and is not cut too low. The shoes are attractive and appear to be well made. I haven't actually worn them out yet but just trying them on they feel comfortable. Expensive but I could not find a dressy black flat that fit the bill.

These are simple, sleek and attractive. The run a bit tight from toe to calf, so they are best for average sized or slim feet/calves. I wore them all day in the city. Very comfortable.

I love the style of those shoes and they looked well made. However, for a size 10.5, I felt they were too narrow for me. I regret to have to send them back. I would love to have them in wide but they sadly do not combine the width.

I wear an 11.5 narrow and found the fit to be spot on - perhaps even a bit snug out of the box. After wearing the boots around the house for an hour or so, my felt settled in comfortably. The support is above average and the boot is, overall, quite comfortable. I haven’t had a chance to wear them out and about just yet, thus my four, instead of five, star rating.

It’s very comfortable. I have tried on in store and this style runs 1/2 size bigger. I usually wear 7 1/2 but ordered 7 and fits perfect.

I was really surprised to find that these boots had a yummy furry lining! They're really comfortable and sturdy to walk in on wet streets, etc. They look great with either jeans or skirts and fit my usual size really well.

The size felt slightly larger than expected, so works well with socks. Very comfortable straight out of the box. I have a bunion that really hurts if shoes are too tight or there isn’t enough padding on the foot bed but they’re super happy. I was prepared to buy an insole based on other reviews about padding but they feel very comfortable without ! Looks great too.
