Great for the stage

As a violinist, it’s hard to find elegant shoes that are comfortable enough to stand and balance in while performing.
These shoes have really come in handy! They are so well balanced that I don’t feel like I’m wearing any heal.
I recommend them for anyone who has to be on their feet for a while, and is not willing to compromise comfort or range of motion.

The shoes looked a bit more delicate in the pictures than they are in real life. The leather is thickly layered and stiff. The height of the toe box seems a little excessive. I had to wear substantial socks with these, which is not what I had envisioned.
But these are small issues when compared to the high quality of these shoes!

Feel good, look pretty

Good arch support and they stay on my feet when I walk because of the straps. The color is a little darker in person than the photos show, however. This may be the result of using flash to take the photos.

Absolute perfection

I've been wanting a pair of navy shoes for awhile and these are just perfection. The lower heel means they are very comfortable. Even wearing them a whole day my feet felt just fine which is rarely the case for any obvious heel for me.

Of AD shoes they're on the narrower/tighter end, similar to the Mae style rather than the Pompadour. But wearing them for a day with a thick pair of socks they fit just fine now. Definitely not enough to size up unless you plan to wear these with thick socks/inserts. Oh and get the button hook tool if you don't have it already. It makes life so much easier, though once you do up the buttons a few times the button holes break in so they're easier to do.

Best shoes ever

These are, hands down, my favorite pair of shoes ever. They are comfortable, cute, and versatile; I can wear them with jeans at the grocery store or with a dress for a nice dinner. The straps adapted to my high arches after only a few wearings, and my toes never feel cramped even though my feet are a bit wide. After two years during which they've been worn at least four times a week, I had to have the heels replaced - mostly because I walk on the outsides of my feet and had worn the heels unevenly. An unexpected benefit is that leather soles mean that the bottoms of my feet don't get chilled walking on frozen pavement. Worth every single penny I spent and more.

Also great for your real-life office job

These are by far the comfiest nice work shoes I’ve ever had. The toe box is large enough and the height is just right for 8-hour wear. Plus, compliments for my snazzy footwear from coworkers.
