Comfortable, except for the back

I had a similar experience to the other reviewer, Holly. I love these shoes. They're comfortable, provide enough arch support, and look gorgeous with skirts, dresses, and pants. They are the first pair of flats that I've been able to wear comfortably. HOWEVER (and it's a big however), the back of the shoes rub my heels raw within the first 5 minutes of wearing them. I've had to resort to wearing bandaids on my heels every time I wear these shoes. Not even mole skin has solved the problem. Due to the shape of the back, a regular insert to stop the rubbing doesn't work. I'm currently exploring other options so I don't have to wear bandaids every time I wear these shoes.

I recently found out I have arthritis of my big toe. It has been painful and I have been searching for comfortable shoes. I bought the Essen in the plum color. The first wearing the elastic was a little tight but it has loosened up. These shoes are very comfortable, you can tell the are made in a way to help with foot problems. I can wear them all day without any discomfort. Plus, they are really cute, I have gotten lots of compliments in them! I am planning on getting the black ones next.

Beautiful shoe, but gives me blisters

This is a gorgeous shoe, and like most Earthies, it feels like your feet are getting a cozy hug when you try them on, they are so comfortable. The colors are perfect for fall and the style looks amazing with both skirts and pants. However, after walking some distance, I found that the back of the shoes are too high and hard and give me blisters on the back of my feet, especially where the top of the back of the shoe meets my ankle. I am hoping that over time they will soften up, but I need to protect the back of my feet in the meantime and only wear these for walking short distances. The crossover stretch band is very attractive, but it does dig into my feet a bit - it doesn't hurt but it leaves a figure 8 mark on the top of my feet.

Do these shoes run true to size or big/small. You don't have my usual size in stock. Trying to figure out if I should go up or down a size. I have extremely flat feet. Thanks

The Essen runs slightly small, we often suggest going up a 1/2 size.

Are the footbeds removable? My right leg is shorter than my left so I need to add a lift under the footbed.
