You cannot go wrong with Ara but especially this gortex line. Sharp, polished loafer has a European look. 1st pair lasted me 5 years. Every bit worth the money.
I first ordered a different pair of rain shoes, from a very pricey brand. They were heavy and clunky on my feet. I then ordered these shoes, and they are exactly what I wanted. I like the color, the insides of the shoes are comfortable and have soft fabric, and they do the job - they keep my feet dry, and look cute doing it!
I was looking for a woman's size Narrow with a leather upper. The product description says that this is "leather." I got the shoes and saw that while there is upper leather trim, it is also upper fabric constructed. I was a little disappointed about that - especially because I searched for leather uppers on line for 6 hours over 2 days. I did find quite a few canvas uppers with leather trims. I just kept on moving along on my search, because as I said, I was looking for leather (just leather; 100% leather) uppers. Since this said it was a leather upper and the picture looked like 100% leather to me, I purchased these shoes. These are a great pair of shoes and I would have given them a 5 star rating had they been upper. As a nurse, I can not wear canvas/fabric because a blood or body fluid spill could work it's way through the little fabric holes that are in a woven material. I wear a narrow shoe, and these come in narrow, so I thought they were the perfect pair. They come in whole sizes. Since I wear a 9.5 Narrow, I purchased a size 10 Narrow. These fit like a 9.5, so if you wear a whole size, just be aware that it may fit a half size smaller on you. Now about the comfort: These shoes are super comfortable! I can wear them all shift without my feet hurting or getting extremely fatigued! The craftsmanship on these shoes are superb!
