A manipulation advocate will name something that which it is not in order to facilitate misdirection. Using the term police action when by all definitions it is war is a classic. The comfort in this case must be qualified in order to hold true. If you will note the toe box you will see in the top view that both straps curve inward as they progress toward the front. This pulls directly on the tarsals instead of the metatarsals. If you are a big fan of foot binding in the traditional Japanese practice or have shoved your mutely protesting foot into a pointy, unnatural shape because of current fashion or bargain you may find these shoes comfortable. As to the top strap, the two side wings stop short of the center, leaving the nylon strap to press directly upon the tibialis anterior, which as we all know flexes with every step as the foot angle becomes acute. This may be mollified if one were to wear socks. If your instep were the perfect height for the two wings to meet there would still be a space, or worse, an overlap which the flexor muscle would press against each time the foot is flexed. One other approach to achieving comfort is to simply ignore it. Shame too. Its such a pretty shoe. This is what I have found. Your results may vary. What is quality? R.M. Pirsig

I love this shoe, but like another reviewer, must return it do to a very short ankle strap. If you have a high instep, this won't work for you. What a shame, because it's a wonderful shoe.

Such a disappointment -- an expensive disappointment. Arch support is great and fit was excellent walking around the house. About 30 minutes into an urban walk about, I had the worst blister ever low on my left heel. There seems to be some irregularity in the lining that chaffed. I do a lot of walking and have owned many high end walking footwear. I never before had such a bad experience.

I loved the first pair so much, I bought a second! These shoes are Finn Comfort at its best. I love the support-especially at the heel which stabilizes the entire foot. I have custom orthotics, but I don't need them with these sandals. They ran large on my foot, so I kept the smaller size (36 instead of 37).

I bought the Samara sandals at a local shoes store in Walnut Creek CA 10 days ago with a big discount. I walk 3 miles a day, 6 days a week. I live with sandals from the Summer through the Fall. I owned 4 pairs of Mephisto sandals (Shark, Jack, Norman and Zonder). I spent a lot of money in search for the best sandals in the world to made my feet happy (65 yrs old man, required a good sandal) . And yes, I have found two companies. The Mephisto and Finn Comfort. Of course, no sandals Made in China for me, period. The Samara gave me totally different feeling compared to the Mephisto Shark when I am walking. The feeling of my feet are being massage due to the high arch of the insole. My feet have medium arch. The slightly rocker sandal also give me the feeling being pushing forward a little bit. The Samara is an excellent sandal for walking if your feet have medium and high arch. Good looking, soft leather and is a top quality sandals from Germany (watch YouTube to see how the Finn Comfort made their shoes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7N-kafQFiXY). From day one, I know that I will be walking with the Samara 3 days a week to share with the Mephisto Shark in my weekly walking. For the look and style of the sandals, I am favor the Mephisto because the Shark looks more manly. For the comfort, both sandals are the same except the Samara give your feet the massage's feeling! When you buy the Finn Comfort sandal, select the soft insole instead of firm standard classic. I returned the Finn Comfort shoes with firm insole. All the Mephisto sandals and shoes (Match) come with soft cushion leather insole. Excellent shoes but the price is too expensive for the Finn Comfort as well as Mephisto but if you want your feet happy and have a feeling walking on the cloud, these two shoes maker companies are the best walking sandal(Finn Comfort, Mephisto)/shoes (Mephisto) on the world.

I'd also recommend: Mephisto

This sandal is very will made with quality parts throughout, as you would expect from a product made in Germany. That being said, it is the most painful thing I have ever put on my feet. There is a large ridge that runs completely across the arch line of both sandals. Every step is painful. Twenty-five feet or more is agony. My feet are normal and have never given me a problem with a large variety of shoes and sandals I have purchased over the years. I cannot believe no one else brought this to the reader's attention in thirty-six reviews. Both sandals were made the same so I don't believe they were a "bad" pair. As always, Zappos honored my return request without any problem.

Great shoes, best arch support I have ever tried on. Sized down. Usually a 38, 37's work great. They are on the narrow side for me, I am considering sending them back. but I love them and don't want to. I wish Finn Comfort would come out with a truly wide sandal. These are a true medium width. Best quality.
