Velcro straps cross over a microfiber inset that's soft against your instep. Textured Vibram sole is long wearing and resilient. 1" heel.

Most Comfortable Shoe

by Sissy from KS (reviewed 6/27/2015 12:00:00 AM)

The velcro straps make the shoe width easily adjustable.This is helpful with different socks as well as daily variations in foot size. I own three pairs of this style and they are in constant rotation. Very light in weight. As another reviewer indicated they do not hurt bunions or any other foot issues that may be present. In some shoes I wear an 11 but the best fit in Thierry Rabotin is 42(known as a sz 12 in usa).

best shoe ever

by Elizabeth from FL (reviewed 1/14/2015 12:00:00 AM)

Love these shoes. On my second pair. Wouldn't travel anywhere without them. Easy on, easy off and as comfortable as can be! I have a bunion and these are still comfortable! They are like wearing clouds on your feet!

Lena is a fabulous shoe

by Anne from PA (reviewed 11/30/2010 12:59:00 PM)

I have it in 3 colors, and ordered a spare in black just in case it ever disappears. It is extremely comfortable, the softest leather you can imagine, very supportive. Many shoes hurt my feet, but none by Thierry Rabotin and this shoe is the BEST of all. It's a casual shoe but I do wear it with short skirts and tights.

Measurements & Ordering The Right Size

Shoe sizes vary by style—they run long, short, wide or narrow. We test fit size 8.5 shoes, and sometimes recommend ordering a larger or smaller size. Look for this information on any product page. (e.g. Fit: Runs long, buy a half size down.)
If one foot is larger than the other, always fit the larger foot.

The letters "4A", "3A", “2A”, "B”, or "C" below the sizes refer to the width of the shoe. The following chart explains the various widths Arthur Beren carries:

4A or SS = Extra Narrow
2A or N = Narrow
B or M = Medium (Standard)
C or D or W = Wide
2E or WW = Extra Wide

Fitting Tips

Get sized regularly by a professional, preferably using a Brannock device. It is important to measure the width of the foot and to take into consideration the type of arch you have.

Wear the right socks. Consider your plans and activities and wear the most breathable and absorbent socks or stockings for the occasion with the appropriate footwear. If going bare, keep clean and dry.

Check the construction. Look at the sole and heel of the shoe to see what kind of terrain the shoe is meant to handle. Also look inside to assess the lining and upper elements of the shoe, checking to see how they will address your needs. A leather lined shoe will generally last longer than one without lining, though the unlined shoe may be lighter and more appreciated in warmer climates.

Walk around. When trying on a new pair of shoes, always try on both pair and walk around a bit - always on a clean indoor surface of course. Flex your arch and toes to see if the shoes feel good while you move about. Try shoes on in the afternoon or evening. Feet swell to their largest as the day progresses, so you will get a better reading of your true size once your feet have warmed up to the day.

Some Specifics

Allow some time to break in a great pair of leather shoes--the best ones are a little tight in the beginning. By doing it right you’ll have shoes that are molded to your feet perfectly. See the How To Care tab for advice on proper shoe maintenance.

If the upper of the shoe is made of elastic or an elastic-blend fabric the shoe should fit snugly and need no breaking in. Shoes should never squeeze or cramp your toes.

If your shoes are slightly too loose in the in-step, a toe pad can be added to create a better fit, preventing any unnecessary friction.

For more heel and arch support or extra cushioning, consider custom fitted orthotic inserts, or even some gel inserts to target the problem.

Thierry Rabotin

Why can’t all shoes be as comfortable as house slippers? That’s the question Thierry Rabotin asked himself when he was growing up in a small village in west-central France. He became a shoe designer in 1978 to answer his own question and to create shoes as blissfully comfortable as going barefoot.

Today, the Thierry Rabotin factory in Italy preserves age-old artisan shoemaking skills while maintaining the highest technical standards. Soft, premium-quality leathers are carefully inspected and matched, and then are joined to the last using a sacchetto construction that ensures a flexible, lightweight, and glovelike fit. Poron memory foam in the insole provides resilient padding; many styles have built-in arch support.

Are Thierry Rabotin shoes as comfortable as walking barefoot? Just ask the many passionate customers in our Union Square Store. They’ll tell you that once you try on a pair of Thierry Rabotin shoes, even barefoot doesn’t feel right!
