I love Mephisto Helen and have in black, brown and tan. I don't get the plus either but has been a few years since bought my last Helen so don't know about their sizing. My new ones are definitely stiffy thus the four stars and will have to be broken in. I love the color so going to keep them. They last me forever so they are an investment for me in shoes. If this is your first Mephisto try the suede leather it's worth every dollar.

I ordered both a regular Helen sandal and a plus one to compare. I currently wear a regular Helen, but wanted to compare the two sizes. The regular width that I ordered was definitely narrower than the current pair I own. But the plus size, although just the right width, had a perhaps more serious problem: the leather around the toe was too tight and when I compared the two sizes it was apparent that in the Plus size the space for the big toe was much tighter. It seemed odd really in that the plus size should have been a bit bigger all around. I ended up keeping the regular size hoping they would sort of flatten out at the edges and returned the plus size, but in reality neither one fit that well. I am disappointed that the sizes are not more true, as my first Helen sandals, ordered a year ago, fit like a dream.

There's not a better, more comfortable sandal than Mephisto Helen. I have several pairs and wanted to move up to Helen Plus, ouch! the toe thong must have been designed to fit the index finger. It is much, much too tight and would cut into the skin if I were to wear them. Usually it's put them on and go. But not these and aren't I sorry.

I'd also recommend: Mephisto Helen but NOT the Helen plus

I usually wear a 38 (7-7.5) in European sizing and was surprised to see that the sizing chart for Mephisto indicated I should order a 37. I did and the shoe felt short, tight and uncomfortable. I returned the 37 and ordered up. The 38 is just a tad long, but otherwise fits great in the "toe-box." And after a short breaking-in period, it's now hugely comfortable.

Other mentioned that they felt the strap was too tight. I did not find that to be true with sandals. In fact, they fit just right. Just wish the wide came in more colors like the regular width.
