These are really great shoes, glad I took a chance on them. They are super comfortable right out of the box, no painful days of break-in. In my opinion, these run a full size big. I ordered my standard size of 11.5 and returned them for a 10.5. I wear these shoes with a suit and tie daily for work and they look fantastic.

I am normally a 9.5. I ordered down based on some reviews but ended up returning and ordering up. I adore these! Super comfortable right out of the box. Can be dressed down and worn with capris and jeans, or dressed up and worn with work slacks and dresses. I have black but want the red! Currently out but I hope they get it in stock soon. The 'Barbara' looks very similar in style so I am going to order the gray/tan in that style!

I have neuromas and have to put orthotics in all my shoes. Except the Mephisto Hannel. I own four pairs of the black patent (bought through the years) and one of the snake skin (only because they were on sale and I wear them around the house). I love these sandals and the patent made them a bit dressier and I wear them with everything from shorts to summer dresses. But Mephisto stopped making the black patent as well as other colors and the few colors they have left are not nearly as cute as what they used to offer. These are great sandals, with great reviews, and I hope that Mephisto reconsiders how they seem to be phasing them out.

Love these shoes. I ordered the light beige nubuck and the Birkenstock comparable style at the same time so I could side-by-side compare. These were noticeably more feminine and were my (and my husband's) hands-down preference as compared to the Birk. I am a size 7 or 7.5 and the 37 in this shoe was just a hair too small. My toes and heel touched the ridge around the edge and the buckles had to be on the largest notch (I have very flat/wide feet). I was going to keep them anyway but then I read the box which stressed that they highly/strongly recommend you not wear the shoes too small--and that there should be space between your foot and the edge of the shoe. I ordered the 38 and they are perfect. The light beige nubuck is so neutral and classic. They will go with everything. I've worn them around for 2 days now with only minimal "breaking-in" required. No blisters. Love these--my first pair of Mephistos.

Order at least one size up! My feet measure at a size 12, but depending on the brand can wear anywhere from an 11-12. I ordered the 13's in these and they were still too small. The toe part is placed too close to the front of the sandal. Typically if you have a long foot, you have long toes to match. Mephisto doesn't account for that. I held these up to a pair of Tory Burch 12's, and the length was exactly the same as the Mephisto 13's. HOWEVER, your foot needs to sit comfortably on the cork footbed, which is small. The footbed is not sized properly. Apparently I'd require a size 14 (what!?) to wear Mephistos, which they don't make.

Gorgeous, however, will need to size up & hope that the 40 will still adjust tight enough for my narrow volume feet with longer 2nd & 3rd toes. If the toe were even slightly more rounded, this would not be necessary. Gave 4 stars overall because of this issue (for me).

I have to agree with the other reviews that this style definitely runs short. I bought 38 and 39 and for me the 39 was right. I wear an American size 8. Very comfortable and stylish with not so high a wedge that you feel like you will fall off your shoe, but gives a lift. I wore the 39's right out of the box for a day with no rubbing or breaking in or anything. However I got it in the replet material which is leather embossed like snake skin type of material. The patent leather was not so giving and seemed not to stretch at all. The toe box is a little narrow on this style and as a previous reviewer points out the strap stops your foot from going forward and could be a problem. but I have narrow feet so it works great. I have been wearing Mephisto Helen for years in a size 37 and it is made in France. This Replet style says it is made in Bosnia. So different style made in different place reflect the sizing. Has to be tried on to really see.

I love these sandals. I have an old pair that I have been wearing for over 4 years and it was definitely time to replace them. After researching my options I decided that I simply wanted the same sandal again.

Cute sparkly sandal, and very comfortable in the foot bed. However, it was styled so that the upper strap is very close to the ankle and, in my case, was digging into my ankle. Not comfortable at all. Sadly, sending back.

I really love these shoes, however I wear a womens 12 and I ordered the 13 and it was to small. So I would say that these shoes run 1 to 1 1/2 sizes small.

This is a beautiful sandal especially in this summer wear-with-everything color. Unfortunately one of my feet is a little bigger than the other and these are not quite long enough. As others have said, inside the shoebox it notes recommended roominess; my toes and heel were where the room should be. Too bad, not available in bigger size. Order early!

After trying several different brands and styles (without success) I decided to give this shoe a try. I have several pairs of Mephisto Helen and love them, but I'm currently experiencing pain from a severe hammer toe that is made worse by a psoriasis breakout on the toe and the Helen just isn't working for me right now. I needed a pair of black sandals...The Hannel is it! I agree that the leather is thin, but I trust Mephisto to use the right leather for the shoe. They are comfortable, have a great footbed, and the adjustable strap makes this shoe perfect for me. I tried them on when I received them today, and haven't taken them off. After shopping and errands they are still comfortable. I wear a 7M USA sizing, and ordered a 37 in this shoe. Fits perfect.

I got the platinum/gold shoe and they were beautiful! The leather footbed was heavenly but the upper was rigid and cut into my foot after only wearing them around the house for a few minutes. They're headed back to Zappos and I will try a softer leather style.

While I liked the way these sandals looked in the picture (that's why I bought them), they are not the high quality construction I expect from Mephisto. The straps are too short, and overall the sandal seems flimsy and not worth the money. The "White Liz" color is not white, but rather a shiny light grey. I tried them on, then put them right back in the box to return, so I can't comment on the comfort.

I have been watching these shoe's for over a year (ridiculous I know). My hesitancy was around the thickness of the sole; what I would have preferred and still do is about another 1/2 added to the bottoms to support the front portion of my foot. Like the thickness of a good gym shoe. I did purchase, I like how they look; with shorts, capri's, jeans. They are comfortable, but I do put my own orthotics inside; right on top of the existing pad. No problems. They have a slight arch but not near enough for me as I'm quite flat footed. I rated them 4 because of the thinner sole (wouldn't be an issue for most, just me as I've quite a bit of pain in my feet).

The actual size on the shoe doesn't match the sizing on the chart. Buy one size up. Since I wore them 5 hours before I discovered the size on the inside of the strap was 10 and 41 written on the heel, I felt misdirected. My sister now owns them.

Size 41 is a size 10 in other European Brands. A size 42 is an 11 in Mephisto. They are really mismarked.

I got these as a birthday present--yay! They are a beautiful shoe, however they tend to run short in the toe box. After I received them, I checked around other sites that sold them and found this to be a common problem. Order a half to a full size up if you have longer toes! If you have cute little petite toes there should be no problem. I am at the largest size sold, 11. I took the insoles out and that reduced the pitch forward that cramped my toes. Now they work for me. These shoes have a nice feminine look to them. They aren't heavy or clunky looking.

I returned the size 37 and got a 38. (I wear a 37 in the Mephisto Helen sandal, which is my favorite; I will reorder that one which for my foot is tried and true.) I am just not wild about the Pastrora design for my foot. The bucksoft toe strap is too wide for my narrow foot and it made me feel like the front part of my foot was sliding side to side. Plus the ankle (stretchy part) rubbed my ankles. It is a beautiful shoe, just not for me. The small elevated wedge heal is great. Perhaps if you have a wider foot, this could work, but you would need to have thin ankles. Or maybe the stretchy ankle part would break in later with wear? Almost makes it, but not for me! LOVE MEPHISTO SHOES AND ZAPPOS.

The arch support is the best and really helped my feet. I used to beat myself up over the price but now realize women spend a lot more to destroy their feet. Mephistos keep my feet going all day and my plantars at bay.
