Having owned a pair of these brown leather sandals before, I was thrilled to see them online. I had my previous pair for about 8 years and gave them up reluctantly when they were worn out. the new pair is the same quality and style, but the size is a bit too short and narrow in the front. I am going to keep them and hope they stretch out some, but for now I have to wear them only a couple hours before I change into another pair of sandals.

These shoes have been part of my life for 10 years, but this pair did not fit properly. I could barely get my toe into the proper place and the cross band was way too tight. I am hoping it was an aberration because this is a favorite sandal for a number of reasons.

These shoes are absolutely gorgeous, and the leather is very soft and forgiving. They are versatile: you get the style of a brogue with the comfort of a sneaker, and the metallic color is stylish but not flashy. The soles are comfortable, especially under the heel, and the length is perfect. However, they run extremely narrow. Maybe they were not sized up proportionally (I wear a size 11/41, but I never need a wide width). The heel fit me just fine, but my toes were squished in the narrow toe box, and the front sides of my feet made the flexible leather bulge out. If you have narrow feet, I absolutely recommend these shoes.

My second pair of the Mephisto Helens. Great fit and very comfortable. I ordered my daughter a pair. Her feet are flat and narrow. They are working great for her. These shoes seem to work for all feet. Zappos' delivery system is unbelievable. I ordered one day and they were delivered the next and I live in a rural area.

I loved the look of these, but they were already gone in my size. I tracked them down elsewhere this time (though I love Zappos) and kept them (not always a given with me!). I have to say, the 37/7 fits much more like a slightly narrow 6 1/2. The ridge around the front of the shoe is soft, but if you have long toes, that could be a bother. I did like the cutouts and the color a lot, and the small wedge that adds a bit of height, while feeling like a flat.

Have worn this style for many years and have had many pairs. For the first time ever, I am sending them back. They are so tight around the toe strap that I could not get them on easy and when I did they made my toes swell, because they were to skimpy. I think that the pair that I received are probably seconds and just not cut or assembled correctly.

Fifth pair of Mephistos (third of this style, different colors). Been wearing Mephistos for twenty years. Great comfort, super arch support. I'd really like five more pairs (but don't need them). They do not cause leg fatigue like flat sandals. I like that I can tighten the buckle as they do stretch a bit with wearing.

These sandals are super comfy and your foot sinks into the foot bed and feels very supported. I received compliments the first day I wore them and continue to receive compliments every time I wear them. I highly recommend these sandals even though they are expensive.

Wow! So comfortable. I could walk for miles in these sandals. The turquoise boa is really attractive. They don't look clunky on my feet which are on the narrow side of medium. I usually wear an 8 1/2 to 9 in dress shoes, 9 1/2 in athletic shoes. A 39 is perfect for me.

Bought the black and it is a comfortable sandal. Have a medium to wide foot and usually wear a 10.5. Sized down to 10 and perfect fit. Plan to wear them on 2-week trip to Europe.

This sandal is very uncomfortable and very hot in warm weather. There are too many straps to adjust and the one across the toes rubs with every step. Very disappointed in this shoe. Unfortunately, I had to wear them for a walk around the city before I discovered how uncomfortable they are and now I can't return them. Ouch!

I am so glad to have these sandals. Due to nerve damage, surgery, and plantar fasciitis, I have difficulty with fit. These sandals support my feet well and have a short break in period. They are better feeling than my previous Birkenstocks. A bit thicker and softer. They have become my go to shoes for summer. The adjustable strap allows me to wear a slide that stays put on my narrow feet. The pricing prevents me from purchasing more colors, but I would certainly like to!

Loves these shoes. Usually wear 7.5 W or WW and the 38 is perfect with adjustable width. Bought the dark taupe and get lots of compliments, even from my 13-year-old daughter. Saving to buy another color. Worth the price.

I have this sandal in black patent and silver. I plan to order the brown as well and if it were offered in other colors, I'd probably buy those too. They fit true to size. Although I like the comfort of cork footbeds, I don't care for the casual look of cork, which is why I love these sandals (aside from the comfort factor!)...the footbed is covered in beautiful smooth black suede! I'd buy other Mephisto styles if they had the same black footbed (Mephisto, I hope you're paying attention...listen up!) These sandals are expensive, but that's because they are made in France rather than China or Indonesia where everything seems to be these days. I'm happy to pay more for products that aren't made where labor is cheap and working conditions are deplorable...but I digress! Buy these sandals...you'll be glad you did!

When I opened the box I was so excited; these are gorgeous. I slipped them on and they fit perfectly. I was ecstatic. Then I walked in them. What the description does not tell you is that that lighter piece across the arch, is stretchy so every time I took a step it felt like the shoe was going to fly off my foot. I don't know if perhaps someone had this pair before I did and stretched it out but if that can happen while they still look new, this is a lot of pay for this particular sandal. I returned them very much disappointed.

Mephisto has been hit or miss for me in the past couple of years. These are definitely keepers. The cushioned, natural rubber bottom, combined with cork and suede is a killer combination. They also lack the stiff ridge at the edge of the sandal that has always been uncomfortable for me. At first, I thought the crossed straps would irritate my skin (I'm quite a baby with shoes), but they continue to soften and feel great after only an hour in the house. Also, for a flat sandal, they're darn cute. I do have to agree that they would not work for a high instep. I have a pretty slim foot that is not at all bulky, and they fit as if they were custom made. Today I returned a designer sandal that cost about $150. more, but kept these. Much better.

These shoes are very comfortable, and I tried them in three colors: Nubuck (camel), blue waxy, and light sand perle patent. They were all very comfortable, and the fit was great. The style is a little heavy looking, which is why I liked the Nubuck camel the best--it didn't "stand out." However, I think that particular pair had a defect. The left shoe's top strap had a large gap on top, while the right one didn't. The style can be a bit slimming at the same time since the top straps go backward at an angle instead of straight across the toes. It leaves your toes rather unencumbered. One pair's thong strap was a bit uncomfortable, while others' were fine. Just didn't fall in love with them.

I'm guessing that, once I get the size of Mephisto that fits, these are going to great! I wear a 38 in Birkenstock, but I could tell before trying on the Mephistos that the size 38 was going to be too small. I'm surprised that know one else noted this. My feet are pretty 'true to size', and have never worn size 39. They just arrived today, so they'll be returned tomorrow. I love the quality, style and the color and can't wait to get my replacement pair!

I purchased my Helen by Mephisto in a two tone nubuck locally over 10 years ago. I love them so much. It was perfect when I had very large bunions and waited to have surgery. Post surgery they were the best sandal to wear with the terrific arch support. No fatigue wearing these all day. I highly recommend this style. I also recently purchased the Violette style with the flower on the front in a platinum color. Very stylish and looks great when dressing Up some. Highly recommend Mephisto!!

Great shoes if you need arch support. This is my second pair of the same shoe. I still wear the first pair but they were starting to look a little dirty. Held up well.
