I just got these today and think they'll be keepers! My foot is narrow at the heel and medium in the front and I have a hard time finding shoes that fit and that I can adjust tight enough in the back. These fit perfectly and seem very comfortable plus good looking. I also pronate and need good arch support, which these shoes have. I always wear a US size 8 and in European sizes, I vary between a 38 and 39. I got these in 38 and they are just the right length.

This is the worst pair of Mephisto I've ever purchased. Within 30 minutes I had large blisters on my big toes. The leather was already shredding when I received them. As you walk your foot goes too far forward and causes the friction on the toes. The color stated is not true. They are more brown than black. 95% brown and 5% black.

These are terrific. I purchased them to wear while touring India and they were undoubtably perfect. Comfortable and stylish.

This shoe is worth every penny it cost. It's supportive, but light. I have narrow heels, a bunion, problems with both big toenails, and nothing hurts in these shoes. I love them.

So comfortable! These gorgeous sandals were very comfortable right out of the box. No break-in time necessary. They are so worth the money. I tried Birkenstocks because of the adjustability and the look but they were so uncomfortable that I had to give up. The Mephisto is perfect!

I bought these to replace my 20 year old Altina sandal. While the new one was nice looking, it seemed to be about 1/4 inch smaller in width in the ball of the foot, and 1/2 inch shorter in length although they were both 40. It is also clear that the leather is substantially thinner (about half as thick), and that the buckle is no longer brass, but is thinner and flimsy in appearance. The footbed appeared to be of the same quality, and was most comfortable and comforting. Arch support is Mephisto excellent. Bottom line: this is a quality sandal, although I don't think it will last 20 years. If duration is not a criterion, then I would highly recommend this sandal.

Having owned a pair of these brown leather sandals before, I was thrilled to see them online. I had my previous pair for about 8 years and gave them up reluctantly when they were worn out. the new pair is the same quality and style, but the size is a bit too short and narrow in the front. I am going to keep them and hope they stretch out some, but for now I have to wear them only a couple hours before I change into another pair of sandals.

I'd also recommend: Ecco
