It's no wonder these shoes are made by New Balance. They are incredibly comfy and the footbed is a work of art. I've had serious foot problems for years and haven't been able to wear anything but tennis shoes and custom orthotics but these are wearable with or without my supports for a good mile and more! If you are a half size go up. Cork insole with memory foam....you can't get any better than this, trust me.....i've thrown away hundreds of dollars on shoes that weren't good enough.
Buying a shoe style I have never tried on and finding it is a really good fit is something I have never been able to achieve. Fortunately, luck was on my side with the Aravon Clarissa. I have 'skinny' feet across the instep resulting in my foot always slipping forward causing a lot of toe pain but not with this style. The ankle strap holds my foot in place and the shoe accommodates my custom orthotics plus being able to buy a narrow fitting I do not have any 'gaping' at the top. I was able to wear these shoes for most of the day the first time I wore them. I will just have to stretch a couple of little areas slightly with my shoe stretcher which I need to do with every pair of shoes I buy anyway. However, the stretching with these shoes will be very minimal. I found them to be very true to size, for me anyway. Intend to buy same style in at least one other colour. I am very, very happy with the shoes.
I usually wear 7 1/2 B. When I put 7 1/2 B into the size recommendation chart it recommended I order the 7B. It was way to narrow and the edges of the insole cut into the bottom of my feet and made them sore. I returned the 7B and exchanged it for the 8B (I was fearful it would be too wide.) Surprise! It fits wonderfully and feels great. The shoe is very comfortable in the arch where I need a little extra support. The straps do not pinch or rub across the top of my feet and still hold the shoes securely. The toe and sides of the shoe are just right and do not pinch or rub the sides of my small or large toes where the openings are or where the leather crosses. I wish the heel were 1/2-3/4 in. higher, just for looks. But comfort and quality are the most important factors...and these are comfortable, quality shoes.
