Zappos does it again - never fails to come through with accurate descriptions, size recommendations pricing and prompt delivery. Thanks!

I liked the shoe...just had mixed feelings about the v-for the vamp. I would also prefer leather -- even patent leather.

Okay, I'm an outlier here -- a 77-year-old woman with narrow, arthritic feet. I am on my third pair of Sams and I intend to keep wearing them until I can no longer walk. For reasons of aesthetics and foot architecture, I can't wear open-toe sandals, and these provide the perfect combination of coverage and air. I just came back from a two-mile walk on New York City's concrete streets. In sneakers or any of my many "comfort" shoes, I'd be suffering forefoot and hip pain. In these, I'm fine. They are a bit wide, and I wish Mephisto would make them on a narrower women's last, but no problem, really. And they get bonus points for looking good with skirts and dresses (sorry, guys).

I love the Mephisto Helen, however, after wearing them just two hours, the silver along the sides was coming off. I am returning them with a tear in my eye because I love the color, fit and comfort. I am going to order a different color - fingers crossed.

I've been wearing dress sandals for decades. I've purchased a wide range of brands. These are by far the best made, most comfortable and IMHO best looking sandals in the market. My first pair finally wore out. I just bought a new pair. Yes, they're pricey but they are a pleasure to wear every day. I wear them with every kind of attire.

I ordered a size larger than I normally wear and they were too small. What's with the quality control with Mephisto. Bi can't rely on their quality or sizing any longer. Don't know which brand to try next.

I usually wear a 37 in Euro sizing. I had to return this sandal for a 36. Great support and virtually no break in period. Can dress this shoe up or down!

These are beautiful shoes - Mephisto is branching out. However the fit is off from their former sizing. I ordered a 9 from Zappos as reviews suggested a half size smaller than I usually wear (9.5) US. When I put them on they were tight and pinched on the top of my left big toe. I returned them (Thank you Zappos for your great return policy). I wanted to get the 9.5, but Zappos didn't have that size in stock in the Hazelnut color. I got the hazelnut 9.5 from another website and they were way too large, so returned them too (had to pay the return ship on that other site!) I heard that Mephisto changed their assembly manufacturing and hope they can get the sizing corrected. Till then I'm out of luck.

I love these shoes. I bought a brown pair 2 years ago and love them, too. Zappos delivered on time and it was so easy ordering on line and tracking my shoe delivery. I will definitely order from Zappos in the future and not mess around trying to find a store close to where I live. I tried to buy these shoes at a store on Pearl St. in Boulder, Co but the man working there could have cared less about selling me ANY shoes and only had 2 styles of the Helen but neither in my size. Why bother and I would have had to pay their sales tax. So I saved $$ by ordering from Zappos not to mention the hassle of navigating in Boulder which is a nightmare with no parking and the new bicycle paths.

This is my second pair of Helen shoes. My first pair were as good as new after 4 years till my new puppy found them as irresistible is I do. My new pair will be kept behind closed closet doors. After sever wearing shorts these shoes form to your feet. Great support and comfort while walking. I'm a 7-7 1/2 but an 8/38 are the perfect fit.

OK I've only walked around the block a few times, so they're still not fully road tested. But they fit exactly like my crumbling 20 year old Mephistos -- the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. They're true to size, at least for size 9. And the strap even adjusts to cradle my rather fat feet. I ordered Silver Venise with my heart in my mouth, fearing that the shimmery color might make me look cheap or gaudy. But the flat, practical style prevents that. Instead they make me look like Superwoman or a very athletic angel or like the yogini I truly am. I can't see myself taking these shoes off... EVER!

I am a Mephisto Hale devotee so of course that style isn't made anymore. These were the closest I could find but they seem to run narrower than the Hale. I wanted to love and keep them but had to send them back.

I love the shoes that Mephisto so carefully makes, and it is with regret that I am returning the Ella (size 9.5, my normal size), it was much larger than their description of how a shoe ought to fit. It was just too floppy on me, and my heel came up and out of the shoe when I took steps.

As usual, Mephisto products are wonderful. These shoes are beautifully made and offer support for the whole foot. I like the European styling. One would not look out of place when traveling abroad.

I absolutely love these sandals. They are my go to sandals when I want comfort and bling. The arch support is excellent and no sliding around of my foot. If you have a wide foot, they probably won't work for you though as they fit snugly with my average foot.

This is my 2nd pair of these. They are my go-to footwear for good weather. They dress up and down, and no matter how tired my feet are, they feel good! Glad they didn't change the style.

I love these shoes except I wish the leather did not stretch so easily. For as much as Mephisto cost, I think they should use a better quality of leather. I have only had them for a month and already have had to move to the next hole on the strap and I only have one more to go.

First I will say that these are not the shoes that I would take out of the box and wear for a long period of time. I originally ordered them in Grey Etna. They were stunning, but after a couple of hours wearing them around the house, my toes were blistered. I returned them. (Thank you, Zappos!) But I couldn't stop thinking about the comfort of the footbed or the elegance of the design. So I ordered them again, but this time in black nubuck, thinking that a softer leather would be good. We had a longer courtship this time. I wore them for shorter periods around the house, allowing my feet to adjust to the straps. Then I wore them to the store, etc. Now I don't want to take them off. They are outrageously comfortable. I'm so glad I gave them a second chance. They are the most comfortable sandals I own. Someone with tougher feet than mine would probably be able to wear the harder leathers. They certainly are pretty.

My Mephisto shoes were delivered exactly as I ordered them. The order was filled immediately. I can definitely recommend Zappos, and will use them again.

I love all my Mephisto shoes so I thought these would be perfect for my weightlifting. But there's not enough arch support. Love the looks though.

Amazing sandal! Wear them every day, even at work. I did get a huge blister after the 2nd wear, but we were in the rain. So after it healed, I tried again, and have worn them ever since.
