Aetrex’s mission is to create ‘the healthiest shoes you’ll ever wear.’ Aetrex footwear is designed to help align the body through proper arch support. At Aetrex‚ the belief is that proper alignment starts from the ground up. Proper arch support allows the wearer to redistribute pressure more evenly throughout the entire foot resulting in improved balance and stability, while the pillow soft memory foam cushioning provides a superior level of comfort with each step you take. All Aetrex products proudly feature the “Aetrex Healthy Three” which consists of Lynco® orthotic footbeds for balance support and alignment, memory foam cushioning for customization and comfort, as well as antimicrobial technology to keep your feet healthy and clean. Aetrex footwear provides the perfect combination of function and style that allows you to both look great and feel great all day long.
Would consider this color more of a warm wine color - not enough pink undertone for a true Terra Cotta or Brick color. Sizing is spot on - order regular size - don't bother to size down as some reviewers said. Insole is SUPER CUSHY. Narrow heel.
I ordered Aetrex Cheryl Mary Jane in Pacific Blue right before leaving for a trip. I was so glad they arrived on time. I tried them on and they were comfortable out of the box and very cushy on the bottom. They were quite roomy in the toe box, with plenty of room for the wide part at the front of my foot and my high arch. They looked boxy in the toe area, like it shows in the photo, but not unattractive on my foot, even with my skinny ankles. The strap adjusts to make them snug, which was needed for my foot in order to keep them secure. I was happy there was plenty of velcro to make that happen. So pleased to find a pair of almost-sandals for summer. I thought the blue was pretty, but might Bettie be described as blue-green. I like the color and it goes with a lot. Very happy with this purchase and will shop for more Aetrex shoes in the future.
I'm 62 with lots of foot issues yet, working in PR, I need funky/fun shoes. Though I need a stiff-soled, rocker shoe, this little shoe is AMAZING!! I put it on just to test the fit, and ended up wearing them the rest of the day! They're incredibly comfortable, have great arch support, and the cork sole and open heel make it fun!! Love this shoe!! Only wish it came in livelier colors--red, etc. I got it in the color "iron," and it goes with brown, black, gray and navy--blends with everything I wear. A+ for comfort, too! Because they're lightweight yet supportive, I can wear these for hours; like walking in pillows.
I might have gotten a half size too small. Ordered a 9 ( my usual size) in the blue. Not bad colors. I wish they had one in darker colors. I had to return them. The main problem was that the toe box seemed very narrow. The arch support was also a little far back for comfort. If you are between sizes, it might be better to order up one size. Nice and light though and soft on my toe bunions. It could work.
Love the braided double strap, the rounded toe, the stable and flexible sole, and the great arch support insole. The suede insert swoops at an angle across the toe, making my large feet appear smaller! And the forefoot bends right on top of my bunion, pinching it with every step. I could just stand still and admire them, but returning makes more sense.
Very, very, very comfortable. Looks great with skirts or slacks. Easy to walk in and my feet don't tire.
Not enough cushioning support in the heel and rubbing along inner ankles
Pros: The foot bed on this shoe was cushioned and supportive. The style was very cute. Cons: The leather was stiff and uncomfortable. The shoe ran narrow with a shallow toe box, causing it to cut into the top of my foot and leaving very little toe room.
These fit and are comfortable. I have narrow feet with plantar fasciitis, so I have to wear what fits and doesn't hurt, unfortunately. This shoe is not cute, but not too hideous. However it is taupe, not gray. I really wanted gray, but can't find anything else that fits, so I kept this. Also, the tongue on the left shoe always goes and stays to the left side of my foot instead of the middle, which is weird. None of my other shoes do that, so I don't think it's my foot. If these shoes had a little more insulation/padding or cushion, I'd give them 5 stars for comfort. I think these must run a little narrow because they fit without me having to wear thick socks or two pairs of socks.
LOVE these shoes but I am right between a 38 and 39. I will look for other Aetrex though.
