I really, really want the Mephisto's to work; however, I have one foot that's a little wonky so they fit perfect on my left foot, not so much on the right foot. They might fit if I could have a different size for each foot alas, I know that's not possible. These are gorgeous, the shoe that did fit, fit perfect and comfortable right out of the box. The piece between the toes doesn't rub anywhere, the leather is very super soft. I'm deeply saddened that I have to return these.

Wonderful fit and comfort! I was needing a great shoe for my trip to Paris, Russia and Norway. Comfort was very important and this shoe will be with me every day. It isn't clunky like some other walking shoe.

Easily 1 size smaller fit than marked. I own few pairs of Birkenstock, and Birki's in 42 (11US) and these fit even smaller. Luckily I tried them in store before ordering (even though Zappos is excellent in shipping/returning) and was sad to find, no way I can have these(as they don't come in 12US/43EU). Gorgeous sandals though and very well made!

Ordered 5 pair of sandals and this pair was the best looking with higher quality leather, nice color and great fit. Expensive but certainly heads above other options. Quick delivery from Z.

Fabulous combination of style & comfort! Had to go up a little in size -- but they still don't look at all clunky, even in 41/11 -- very sleek styling (they still look too small at first glance, but fit fine). I like the soft, comfy inner sole better than older Mephistos...partly because soft, but also considerably better arch support, which I do need these days. Little elastic connector pieces ensure the perfect width fit every day (hope they hold up). Don't like to pay this much for shoes, but I think these will be worth it!

I wear an 8 1/2 in American shoes and a 39 in most European shoes, and these fit me perfectly. My feet are a medium width, although perhaps slightly on the narrow side of B, but narrow enough to call for a narrow shoe. The straps fit my feet perfectly. The shoe is stylish, comfortable, and has great support. I do think however, with the wide crosswise straps, it would be more attractive on someone with a fuller profile, less angular, foot than mine.

Stylish shoe with great arch support and cushioned sole. It fits perfectly and is very comfortable.

This shoe looks great and it is so comfortable. The adjustable straps stay put. I usually buy a 38, but needed the 39.

Perfect sandal. Great support in all the right places. The fun color (orange) makes this look like it's not an "old lady" shoe! They are very expensive, but my feet are worth it.

The photo shows an attractive shade of clear bright orange that would be great for casual summer outfits. Unfortunately, the pair I received was a much darker shade - definitely not the look I wanted. I did not even bother trying them on so I will not rate them for fit or comfort.

I very disappointed on this design. I have been wearing Mephistos for about 20 years and these are not sized well. They are short but going up a size is not the solution as they then cut into your feet, and do not fit well at all. I have to rethink buying Mephistos.

Excellent quality, solid great arch support. These are really comfortable. But, they are really heavy and don't make a great fashion statement. Would wear them on vacation if I had a lot of ground to cover. Hard to match with dress slacks for work, not bad with jeans. If you have sensitive feet, they work.

I bought these and a pair of Ecco shoes (Ecco Sport Biom Ultra Quest Plus) for a trip to Florence to visit my daughter who is studying abroad and was surely going to walk me to death and I didn't want to wear heavy sneakers. After day one of insane walking, the Eccos had rubbed the side of my foot raw. I had planned on them being my main pair and the Mephisto for back up - as they seemed to have less support. As it was I never went back to the Eccos. I wore these Mephistos all over Florence, a ton of walking, stair climbing, chasing after a 20 year old with boundless energy. I only changed shoes for a few dinners out where they were too casual. So that was 8 days, walking almost non-stop and running through train stations (okay, walking very very fast) and airports. I could not recommend these shoes any more highly. I came home with slightly sore feet, but no shock there for the huge amount of unaccustomed walking. But no blisters, no flair up of Plantar Fasciitis, no sore arches. Awesome little pair of shoes. Will be getting another pair in a different style if possible for summer. (originally ordered a 9, as I wear 9-9.5 had to go up to 10). I note "moderate" arch support below-just because if I was currently having arch problems I'm not sure it'd be quite enough. But I'm prone to plantar fasciitis and these did not trigger any problems, despite all the walking.

Felt a half to full size larger compared to most shoes I wear. Would not recommend, especially at this price point!

I did not follow the suggestions to size up and had to return. I am a solid 10 in shoes and had to go up to an 11. Very comfy to wear and no need to break them in. The nude color is very hip and virtually just blends in to your foot! I was worried they would look like old lady shoes (I am 43), but they don't.

I love the bling and simplicity of this shoe! The shoe is comfortable and eye catching and fun to wear. However...after wearing the first pair for 6 hours, the bling strap broke from its attachment. I called Zappos, and true to the great customer service, I got a replacement pair right away! I wore the second pair 10 minutes and the bling strap broke on the upper strap! I tried gluing it with jewelry glue (where the straps are attached) and hope it holds. This is definitely a flaw in the design. For the price, they are not worth the worry of keeping the bling strips attached to the shoe strap! If the bling breaks away again, I will have to return the shoes.

This is by far the most supportive and comfortable shoe, of any kind, that I have ever worn! I need excellent arch support at all times, so I wear these around the house all year 'round. I am on my fourth pair because when they wear out, I simply replace!

I bought these because I wanted a comfortable shoe for walking my commute route with no regard to how they looked (everyone is wearing wedges or sledges or boots these days). I just wanted COMFORT. Well, the Lilou was comfortable right out of the box (could not ask for a better feeling shoe out of the box) and they turned out to be really cute. I can wear them with any pants - capri or long, and I can wear them with or without socks and they work fine. I know, I know - but sometimes I have to wear socks with my maryjanes. In a pinch, they look fine with long skirts and sporty with short skirts. The black ones look fine for the office. These shoes are far more versatile and nicer looking than I ever expected. I have a narrow foot that is hard to fit comfortably, but I was able to adjust the straps of the Lilou to fit just fine. It is a more narrow, sleeker look than the clompy Allrounder style. One note: I don't know if it is my feet or this shoe, but I have worn a 10 in the past, and I wear an 11 in this shoe. I like a roomy toe box, tho, so maybe it is me. I love this shoe so much I tracked down a pair in the reddish coral color. Did I mention I love them? I love them. If money grew on trees, I'd buy every color in the Lilou series.

If you love Sydel then this is the shoe for you! They are just as comfortable with all the same strap adjustments. Great for everyday too, they have just enough glitz while not being too obnoxious. My golf shoes are 8w or 8 1/2m and I usually am 39 but for some reason my Mephisto shoes fit me better in an 8. I also have the Galina and I got an 8 1/2 and they are big in me and I should have got them in a size 8. Hope this helps.

I needed a sturdy walking shoe for a trip to Italy where I would be walking a lot. I have a 10 year old pair of this same shoe in black suede which has served me well. The thick sole is great on all those cobblestones. I ordered a 6-1/2 which were very comfortable. I usually wear a 6. Am very happy with Mephistopheles quality and comfort.

The pink Helen Perf is perfect for spring and summer - but I need the next size up and it is not available! Even that would be a risk - my medium width foot hangs off the side slightly and I am worried that it will break down the foot bed and rub the sole of my foot. Oh well - since Zappos does not have the size I need - it won't matter. These go back for someone to enjoy this summer.
