Cute design and color but I was disappointed with this shoe. I've worn Mephisto sandals for many years and have always found their leather to be soft and comfortable right out of the box. These were very stiff leather and my feet said "Send them back" right away. For the price, I can not risk a break-in period that never ends.

Super comfortable - maybe the most comfortable sandals I have ever worn. I have worn other Mephisto styles, but I love the height on these and that they're still so comfortable. Pricey, but so worth every penny!

This sandal has the dreamy footbed that I expected from Mephisto and also was even cuter on than I expected (in black). I am not sure that this is the shoe for walking for miles given the narrower straps, but very comfortable nonetheless. The embellishment on the front jingles when you walk. I would have kept them but they were made very narrow.

These are the most amazing sandals EVER. So comfortable. It's like walking on air. They are also beautiful. I *LOVE* the metallic glisten of the taupe sandal. It gives it some "glamour." They are pricey but worth it. Mephisto has the best shoes for feet that need some love.

These feel like you are walking on clouds. They are also attractive and well made. I have flat feet and I over pronate. I have foot pain as a result. These shoes feel like they are protecting and cushioning my feet. It is lovely to have a pair of platforms that are not dangerously high, have style and are so comfortable. You can wear these with anything. Mephistos are costly but worth the price. I have tried all the other orthotic brands and these are the best. I wear about a 9┬Ż and the size 40 fits great.

Best shoes ever. Like walking on air. Comfortable right out of the box, as others have said, but this is very rare for me. The padding around the ankle is great. I love that the laces stay tied. Totally worth the money.

Mephisto shoes fit my feet like they were made for them and these shoes are no exception. They are comfortable, well made durable, and these have style!!! Received scores of compliments the first day I wore them.

One major thing I like about Zappo's is their speed of delivery. I ordered 2 pair of these shoes (different colors). I received this shoe order in about 2-3 days - the other in 2-3 weeks. This shoe is a winner with nice arch support and they are long wearing. I started wearing the plain leather brown (still wear them), then a black pair. I wore the brown to Africa where I worked for 1 month and my feet swelled horribly. This is the only shoe I could wear because it adjusts. Thanks for always carrying it in many colors. I have red, orange, blue, pink snake, gray, a pair of hot pink ordered from England, now this camel and a brown with turquoise highlights

This is a handsome looking sneaker, but is too narrow for my feet. Previously sneakers I bought from Mephisto were fine. I will try a 7, and see if it fits better.

I like these shoes. I have trouble walking with knees and leg problems. These were comfortable and went well with my black pants for a dressier look for a night out.

I guess I'm joining the chorus about the toe ring being too tight. The right shoe fit fine but the left shoe big toe area was about a 1/2" smaller and felt like a toe tourniquet! I have regular Mephisto Helens but thought I'd try a pair with a little more room for toe spread. Had the big toe area not been so tight, these would have been great. After reading other reviews, this seems to be a common problem with Helen Plus and is either a design or manufacturing flaw. Don't recommend.

This is my second pair of Mephisto Peggie. I bought the same style in black about 3 months ago. For some reason the black one is more comfortable than the camel. I love the black pair because of the softness. Both have great arch support and that is the main reason I bought them along with the nubuck material. I have difficulty finding comfortable shoes and these seem to be the best I could find. Hopefully, as I wear the camel, they will feel better in the toe area. I have a hammer toe. I get many compliments on both of these shoes.

These are fabulous sandals. The color and style are beautiful! I have a high arch with foot issues from working on my feet for years. The arch support of these sandals is perfect. I wear a size 10 and a 41 fits me just right. It stays on my foot easily even when walking fast. The inside of the leather of the top of the sandal is soft and easy to break in.

This sandal is very comfortable right out of the box. The Nairobi print is gorgeous! I have purchased both the dark brown and silver Nairobi prints and I love them both! Sizing seem true. I usually wear between 8 and 8.5 and the 39 fits me perfectly.

I really like the style of the sandal, and the comfort of the rubber sole however the sizing is off. I normally wear a 9 or 9.5 shoe in a medium width but have slightly narrow feet. When the previous reviewer stated that they run narrow I expected the sandals to be a perfect width. I ordered a size 40 which is the size that I always wear in European sizing. Zappos has the 40 listed as a size 10 (not sure why) so if anything these should have been a little large but instead I found the length to be 1/2 inch too short and the bands very tight across the instep. If not for the too short length (my toes were extending over the end of the sandal) I would have considered keeping them as the bands would probably loosen some with wear - instead I am returning them and will look for another brand in a similar style. I do not think the tight bands is a width issue because the band that goes across the lower foot was somewhat loose, I think the issue is simply that I have high insteps and am large boned. The sandals would probably be perfect for someone with a smaller frame.

Purchased these to travel to Ireland with the anticipation of a lot of walking. They are one of the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn with great arch support and a cushion heel. My feet are battered from years of being a runner and they never felt better nor felt tired. I wasn't crazy about the style but after wearing them and feeling how great my feet felt, it didn't matter, it's all about comfort.

This is my second pair of this shoe. The first I've had for a few years and literally wore them to death. So glad they still make these same great shoes which are so comfortable for walking and wearing around all summer. I always get tons of compliments as well!

These shoes are so comfortable! I have high arches and the arch support is perfect. The straps are comfortable and don't rub anywhere. The footbed does live up to the advertisement of being a "shock absorbing" sandal. My first pair of Mephisto's and I love them!

Too constructed, everywhere impinging on my feet. I could feel all parts of the shoe. Tiring and inflexible Toe box is too narrow for me. I would advise getting half a size larger if you have moderately wide feet in the front. Nowhere near as comfortable as my Sam sandals, which do not have such inflexibility and narrowness of construction. I like my Patagonia Maui chukkas (discontinued) much more. That sole does not offer arch support, but it and the entire shoe are pliable and conforming, which the Match is not.

These shoes were so stiff that after I put on one shoe, I did not even bother putting on the other. Both the strip across the foot and the piece against the toe were so uncomfortable! I feel like there would be so many places to rub and blister! And the shoe itself was very stiff - there was almost no bend. I agree with other reviewers that these were very narrow. If I were keeping them, I might consider a wide width, which I very rarely need.

I usually don't feel comfortable in sandals with a thong between my toes, but these are really comfortable. I usually wear an 8, but on the advice of other reviewers, ordered a 39 in these, and am glad I did. They're perfect! Love the style and the color, and plan to take them on vacation to London and Paris. I have some 15 year old Mephisto sneakers, and aside from a few scuffs, they're still comfortable and in excellent condition. You get what you pay for!
