I am so happy with these. I wanted a pair of shoes to be able to take the 20 minute walk from Penn Station to my office in comfort and style. I have a really comfortable pair of Merrill's that I have been wearing, but they are far from stylish and I always felt frumpy looking in them. These are really really comfortable for the walk. And they make me look "dressier". They are so nice that on some days, depending upon what I am wearing, I leave them on all day rather than change into the shoes that I leave at the office. I think I. At order another pair so I have them when this pair gets worn out! I am generally a 6.5 but after reading the reviews before I bought them, I ordered both the 6 and 6.5. My feet tend to swell a little when I walk, so I was concerned with the comfort for dutPrint the walk..whether they would get tight. I walked around the office for an hour a day for a couple of days and decided to keep the size 6. I have now worn them on my walk for the last frpew days and they are really comfortable, despite my slight swelling. So if you are unsure of the size, I would suggest the smaller one. Or, do what I did. Buy both and then return the one that doesn't fit. That's what I really love about Zappos. Free shipping there and back. It allows me to test them out and keep what fits best.

A little old-fashioned for my taste. Also seemed to run wide.

Bel lacks the edging of Bella that keeps the shoe from gaping. Love the look, but the shoes lack structure to look polished. The rubber sol of Bella just isn't all that noticeable. I'd choose Bella instead.

I ordered both the black/patent Bella and Bel. Bella won out for a wedding ensemble despite the rubber sole which isn't all that noticeable. Bel was dressier due to the black patent heel, but Bel lacks the patent edge that reduces gaping with this shoe. This shoe is wonderfully comfortable right out of the box. I must have ordered a total of 6 pairs of shoes from various vendors. These were the last and the best! I heartily recommend them for medium to wide feet.

Good looking shoes but mine are marked wrong inside the shoes and on outside of box. I ordered 7&1/2 but the pair I received are enormous, at least a 9 or bigger. Will give it another try and return this pair.

Returning these because they just aren't very good-looking in person (in shoe?). They are comfortable and the sizing was right on.

Shoe is super cute. It cover a lot of the top of my foot which was a bit strange at first but they have great cushion and I love the color

lovely shoe, stylish and comfortable. Bought it for dress as it has some sparkles, but wear it for everyday. The velcro strap is a bonus as it fits me just right. Also perfect for my high arch..

these shoes have been a lifesaver. they are not only comfortable, but they are waterproof. The simple design has allowed me to wear them casually, as well as to a graduation and a funeral, both of which involved walking in the rain. In addition, Zappos one-day delivery allowed me to purchase these in time for a trip when there was a sudden change in the weather forecast. thank you, ARA! Thank you, Zappos!

I really wanted to like this shoe. I had a wedge loafer with a similar patent pattern I was trying to replace. It seems very comfortable, but it runs large. I'd over at least a half size down. The toe could be narrow for some, it worked well for me. But the shoe looks a bit matronly on the foot to me--could be fine for a conservative suit look.

Cute boot - very slim in toes and unable to fully zip on calf - recommend going at least half size bigger

I bought these shoes 6+ months ago and can't say enough great things about them. While they are pricey they are super cute, I was able to wear them traveling immediately, extremely comfortable and they are wearing well.

I wish I could've kept these shoes...the sole is amazing and would be perfect for waling to and from work. However, even in the wide width, the toe was too boxy and the right edge rubbed my small toe. ARA shoes are good, but this one just din't fit my Flinstone foot.

Ohhhhh, yes . . . beautiful shoe that conveys the look of a stylish high heel without being all that high! In the lighter color it is leg-elongating for fair/euro skin and probably flattering for a lot of skin tones. I can wear this for a party or a business reception. I am very happy with this shoe.

This shoe is almost perfect, but there were two things that made me return it. The ball of the foot lacks cushion, which is a shame given that the rest of the shoe is nicely cushioned. The real problem was the look, though. It comes up a bit high on the sides, and the toe box is very long and comes up high on the toes. That gives it a somewhat orthopedic look, which is especially noticeable as I looked down on them. I am a size 9, and my feet looked huge in these. There are more stylish options out there.

I have worn a pair of Trotters (flats) with pants sets and nice outfits and hoped to find a pair of cute shoes to start wearing. Cute they wear but I can't keep them on my feet. So I have to return.

Cute shoes - plenty of toe room, and like all ara shoes they are pretty true to size. A little wide in the heel, but nothing I can't fix. In most light it is difficult to tell these are navy and not black.

The shoe was cute but the velcro buckle fit loosely on my ankle, no way to tighten, the shoe was at least have 1/2 size long

Toe box is a little narrow and heel is a little large for my usually average foot.
