I finally found sandals that fit and I can walk in all day! For me, that is terrific and I thank Zappos for their return policy and patience, with me. I love you guys. I had to order two sizes larger than my usual size but it finally worked. I wish that they had a slide heel buckler even elastic, but the Velcro will work. Yes, they are very expensive but I usually cannot walk in most shoes. As a nurse, I need to walk and these worked. Thanks, Mephisito, and Zappos.

Loved the soft leather, the wonderful tread on the bottom, and the potential for a great cold-weather shoe that would be on and off in a snap. I found that when I had the correct length, the shoe was much too wide for me. I'm a 7 or 7 1/2B, ordered the 37.5, and was swimming in it. I may try a 37, but I think my sensitive, long toes would be unhappy.

Very comfortable with soft feel. The contrast sole gives a more casual look, but not so much to prevent wearing to work.

I needed a good looking shoe for casual wear that could accommodate an orthotic. This shoe did just that. It has a removable footbed and with my custom orthotics, it felt wonderful. This is a beautifully made shoe and I love the oxblood color. I have a wide-ish foot with short toes and a high instep. This shoes was particularly long in the toe part (I had about an inch extra) and it looked better in the picture than on my foot. My friend said they looked like bowling shoes when I tried them on. Other than that, they are gorgeous.

LOVE the shoes, but almost returned them. I have narrow, flat feet and had to have another hole punched in the band to hold my foot. The strap now goes ALL the way to the base of the shoe, but doesn't drag.

I was extremely disappointed with these shoes. I bought them hoping to wear them on a trip to Italy. This is my first pair of Mephistos and I was expecting incredible comfort for the price. But they are completely uncomfortable. There is no support or padding and zero arch support. Also, the inside of the shoe around the heel has a seam which rubbed me raw. The shoes are totally adorable and I wish they worked. If you don't mind spending a ton of money for adorable shoes that will hurt your feet, then these are for you.

I am also a pharmacist on my feet over 12 hours a day. I am very particular about the shoes that I wear. They absolutely have to be comfortable and provide support. If they look good that's always a benefit. I've worn Mephisto in the past and have always found them to be a reliable shoe. That is until I bought this pair These shoe really are quite stylish but not the least bit comfortable. I was even thinking about buying Dr.Scholl's insert to make them comfortable because I liked the way they looked. Bottom line is that if you spend this much money on a pair of shoes you shouldn't have to put inserts in them to make them comfortable. I had to send them back and I got the Mephisto "Match" in place of the "Cap Vert". Although not as stylish they were very comfortable. Maybe the pair I got were defective but there wasn't anyway I could wear them to work and stand for 12 h

I'm struggling to adapt to this shoe after owning three pair of Mephisto Cap Vert which I love. The Edlef seems narrower and has an uneven heel strike; as if the outside rear corners touch first and the heal rolls. I do like the look and quality, and want to like the Edlef, but slip on my Cap Vert if I want comfort.

I bought these shoes for long vigorous walks in the city and was disappointed because they do not provide much support or protection from impact on hard surfaces. I do not recommend them for that type of use.

This is the best sandal, in my opinion. This is my second pair. Unmatched comfort, far superior to Birkenstocks. They are definitely worth the money.

I have been searching for a walking shoe that would allow me to walk in comfort. That sounds like a no-brainer but not really. I have a very troublesome right foot after 2 surgeries that I think did more harm than good. To find a shoe that allows me to walk reasonable distances without discomfort is a challenge. I think I have found the shoe. Mephisto, as a brand, has been very friendly to me and this is no exception.

Love the shoe. I have a bad back and I find nothing compares to a Mephisto shoe! Fit great and give the best support. I can walk miles without pain in a Mephisto shoe.

Finally, after trying out a total of five pairs of shoes, I've found a pair that will work while I'm rehabilitating a bone ub nt left foot that is healing from a break. These shoes feel fantastic and seem to be passing the "walk" test. I tried another pair of Mephistos that looked very similar to me and they didn't fit at all. This is a splurge for me in terms of price, but I think it will be well worth having an excellent shoe, especially during this time of healing and even after I go back to my regular shoes. It pays to try shoes on and I appreciate that Zappos makes this process doable.

Throw away your Birk's; these are the cat's meow. No nasty toe grabbers and they're cushioned nicely with great arch support. Overall outstanding although somewhat spendy, but then, so are Birk's!

Although the shoes technically fit, I really could not get into the look of the strap across. I know about mj's, but these were just too clunky. And they did not have the comfort level of other Mephistos I have owned.

How fantastic! You actually carry Mephistos in a wide width. I love these shoes but they are narrow so a wide is perfect! I have rheumatoid arthritis in my feet and these shoes are so comfortable. I wore them before the RA too. Love them!

As always with Mephisto shoes, light, comfortable and elegant. My last pair is still in use after 8 years and I ordered this new pair out of sheer boredom.

The ONLY shoe I have worn in the last 15 years is this style of Mephisto. I have walked in London for ten hours and never one twinge from my feet. I have strolled over the cobblestones in Dublin and never an ache. I am grateful to the shoemakers for their expertise. Every year I order two pair and never tire because they are so comfortable.

Great shoes. Size 9 was just a bit too short for my longer foot. May try the 9.5!

I have had one pair of these for 10 years, and they are the best walking sandals I've ever owned. No cutting straps, enough support that your feet don't get exhausted, a little wedge so you don't feel/look dumpy, and a nice, feminine shape. Last year I got Achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis. These were the only shoes I could bare to hobble around in. I bought brown and pewter to support my summer wardrobe and I wore and have continued to wear them every day it's warm enough ever since. I walk the dog in them, visit museums, and hike around shopping malls without ANY discomfort. I even use them as bedroom slippers, because they're more comfortable than going barefoot! You cannot go wrong by investing in these lovelies!

I love these shoes. I have a very narrow foot and they fit perfectly. What impressed me the most was Zappos customer service. I ordered a size 8 and had to return them for a size 9. I packed them up entered the return information that same morning and received the size 9 shoes the next afternoon couldn't believe the turn around service.
