No arch support and didn't find these to be very comfortable at all.

These shoes were uncomfortable. They felt too narrow and didn't support my toes in the shoe. I will be returning. They had good reviews, so I was expecting comfort. The only thing I liked was the heel shape and height but if my foot hurt, the heel doesn't even matter.

These shoes are a lovely soft leather. They run large. I usually wear 10.5W. I returned those for 10W and returned those for 10M. The 3rd time was the charm??

I like these! I’m back to see other colors. I’d like a tad more arch support but for now they seem fine. I need upscale comfy shoes for my job as a real estate broker, and heels just don’t work for me anymore. These fit what I’m looking for!

Frustrated beyond reason about the wide calf size inconsistencies. Size 8 wide calf, which was too large for me overall, had a calf circumference 1-1.5 inches larger in places than my 17” calves. However, size 7.5 wide calf was easily 2 inches too small. Do the math - going down a single half size resulted in the calves being 2 inches smaller. Totally unreasonable!!!!

I loved the look of these boots. The leather was extremely soft. The width felt a little tight at first, but because the leather was so soft, I think it would have given a bit with just a wearing or two. The issue I had with the boots is that the heel was too loose. I slid out with each step. Had to return them which was disappointing as I loved the look and they were a great price.

I'm 5' tall, and these boots have a tall shaft. I should have measured that. The top of the boots irritated the back of my legs when I sat down. The were also too wide at the top. I needed the wide-calf, but the top was too wide while they just fit my calves. The real problem is that they were bulky at my ankles. I have larger calves, but my ankles are much smaller. So as attractive as they are the proportions weren't right for me. They're on their way back. Good thing I bought them from Zappos.

I LOVE these shoes and I think they have converted me into a bootie person. Are all booties like this!? My god. I have really, really difficult feet. They are WW with narrow heels (so I require Mary Janes [or BOOTIES] basically because my feet fall out of every shoe), super high arches and insteps, and tall toes or something (I don't know how to describe it. But I need a roomy toe box.) Oh! And they're two entirely different sizes! Super fun. Shoe shopping isn't agonizing at all. These shoes are cute (my boss called them "sharp") and disguise my alien feet. This is an almost impossible combination. A+, 10/10, I should probably buy a back-up pair.

With David Tate I can usually buy my true size, yay! I am a size 6 WW. Width is perfect; heel height is not too high or too low. The fabric is very soft.

The first time I've ever had a boot that fits and is comfortable right out of the box. I actually have room left over in the calf which is astonishing in itself because most boys, even the ones that say extra wide calf still won't zip up and if I could get them to zip up then they'd scrunch down and look awful. But not these. I live them. They feel great and look great. The leather is butter soft and the lining keeps my feet and legs warm. The price was just awesome as well because other places for the same pair of boots wanted well over $200 or more. Thank you Zappos for always meeting or exceeding my expectations.

Love this shoe! I have a difficult time finding extra wide shoes that are stylish and feel good on my bunion foot. These shoes are just that! I had a first ordered them in my usual size of 8.5WW but they were too tight and too short. I reordered them in a size 9WW and they fit perfectly!

My feet are narrow but I have bunions, so I got the medium width in this shoe. The length and width are true to size and the toe box has enough room to be comfortable. For my feet, the diagonal elastic holds my feet in place while the other elastic straps are decorative. For a wider foot, all the elastic straps could hold the foot in place. These shoes are stylish enough to wear with pants or a casual dress or skirt, yet they are comfortable enough to wear all day. They are well made and worth what I paid, especially since I bought them on sale for under $100.

I bought these shoes specifically for the wide width and to accommodate bunions. These are the first career shoes I’ve ever owned that I would describe as a hug for my feet. They are extremely comfortable and I love the bootie/pump crossover style. Highly recommend!!

These David Tate sandals were purchased to replace my Andre Assous espadrilles. The leather is not nearly as soft resulting in an uncomfortable fit.

I found this shoe to be well made and stylish. Unfortunately the 11M, the size which I wear in other brands, was too long and wide, and the smaller size I needed was not available. Had to return them.
