I sooo wanted to love these sandals. I'm on my feet all day at work, and these strike the perfect balance between professional but approachable. I'm a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, and I love funky sandals. The kids also seem to like them. These would have been a hit but... I usually wear a 9-9 1/2. These are a 10. The inside lid on the box states there should be 6-7 mm between toes and end of shoe, with same at heels. Nope, foot right up to the top of the sandal. Also very narrow. I don't usually have a problem with medium width - my foot was hanging over the sides - kind of like muffin top of the feet! I even went to a local department store that carries the Mephisto line, to try another 10 to see if it was just this pair. Nope. They didn't carry 11's, which I have never in my life worn. I tried on all their 'comfort' shoes, from Ecco to Dansko, to Alegria to FitFlop. Nothing at all fit. Got an email from The Walking Store. Ordered a really cute, funky pink/purple swirly strappy sandal - the 9 1/2 fit perfectly. I think the brand, Abeo, is a TWS exclusive, otherwise I would have purchased it from Zappo's of course! My husband has a probably 10+ year old pair of Mephistos that he sends in to Mephisto to get rehabbed every few years. That process is about $150, but the shoes are now over $500, but are the most comfortable shoes he's ever worn.

Loe the shoes right out of the box. Absorbs all the little bumps and lumps on cobblestone and uneven sidewalks.

Absolutely beautiful and comfortable. Same size I always order. I am so glad Zappos still had my size.

Cute, but don't like white sole and lace. Dresses them down. Not much padding.

Not for those with bunions! Lovely shoe but rubs against big toe. So sad, I'll have to send them back!

Typical Mephisto, comfortable and fits. I ordered 1/2 smaller than normal.

So far, so good, but haven't gone out of the house yet! I love the sparkles, but am kind of fearful, due to all the people who,have had issues with them falling off. Also, don't know whether to keep this pair or size up. I usually wear a 9-9 1/2. These are a 10. The enclosed info with the sandals sat they should have a few mm of space in front of and in back of foot. I don't know that I have much room. If I size up to an 11, I think I'll break my neck by tripping over them. So far my left foot (my smaller foot) is sitting further back than the right foot, which is causing a rubbing between my toes. I'm not worried about the rubbing, b/c most sandals do this, then they are fine. But it feels a little strange to not have the stem jammed right up against the base of my toes, like it is on the right. The left shoe gives me the space Mephistopo states I should have, but only with the shoe being worn in an awkward way. Since I bought these a few days ago, they have gone up dramatically in price. I don't know why. I may just send these back for another size 10. If the fit isn't better, I'll just send them back as well.

Love that these sandals have a an adjustable width strap - I have a narrow foot which makes finding sandals I don't slide thorough difficult. also love how the cork foot bed conforms to your foot. I own 4 pairs of this style.

This shoe fit perfectly, as if it were made for my foot. However, there is far too little cushioning under the ball of the foot so back they go.

This time, I bought the "Old Pink" color - it's my 5th pair of the Mephisto Beauty. My 65 year old feet still have a desire to look fashionable but need to be comfortable while doing so. The Beauty is just that - well fitting, supportive, and the ankle strap holds the shoe securely to my foot so walking is easy, even on cobblestone streets here in the South. The Old Pink color has a bit of peach tone in it and on my fair skin it looks like a nude color, it is also suede. I hope Mephisto continues to offer this style - I would love to have it in a brown leather!

Awesome shoe and a great fit. I had to go a size smaller. The detail in this shoe is worth the price. I have another pair of Mephisto's and they are awesome.

The leather of these seemed too hard to break in and be comfortable. The shoe also seems a bit tight. I usually buy a 10 but ordered both a 10 and a 10.5 to try. If I had decided to keep them, I would have kept the 10.5. I just didn't see how they were going to get super comfortable to justify their high cost so I'm returning them.

I believe this shoe far exceeds the Mephisto Match. AS a matter of fact this is one of the most comfortable shoes that I have owned ...I am 70 yrs old with peripheral neuropathy. I am considering purchasing another one in case they discontinue the style...price aside try them.

The heel was WAY shinier and more reflective than I thought. I was expecting a more subtle contrast. Also didn't feel the quality warranted the cost.

I love the style of the shoe. Unfortunately, they had no arch support. I had to return them because I had ankle surgery and need the support.

Comfortable enough, but no better than a much cheaper ECCO in both comfort and apparently quality. They also looked slightly more casual (without any added benefit in comfort)

I was looking for some everyday shoes that I could wear to the office or with a pair of jeans. I ended up ordering both the Edlef and the Adelio from Mephisto to see which I liked better. The Edlef is definitely dressier, though it isn't a dress shoe. It really does fit your foot like a glove, and it's very light, but still feels substantial. Pricey, but absolutely worth it if you're looking for a classy yet comfortable slip-on. Ultimately, I ended up returning the Edlef, because the slightly more casual look of the Adelio was what I needed, but I did it with much reluctance. I really wanted to keep these, and might be purchasing a pair in the future! Kudos to Zappos for the amazingly friendly return & exchange policy too!

I normally don't pay this much for a walking shoe, but this is a Great Shoe! I was looking for a walking shoe that didn't look like the typical white soled walking shoe. I love that this color is a bit flashy. And the comfort is great right out of the box.

These are my absolutely favorite sandals. If I lived in a warmer climate, I would likely toss all of my other shoes! I started wearing these sandals in 2007 and have never looked back. I walk a great deal and have found that they support my feet better than any other shoe or sandal that I own. When I travel, these are the only sandals that I pack. I do recommend that, prior to walking any distance in them, the new owner should break them in so that the strap between the toes becomes softer.

Pros: The shoes look good Cons: very expensive, they wear easily, uncomfortable in the heel/Achilles area. They also fit very big.
