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.

My first pair, LOVE them! I normally wear an 8 in most shoes but am noticing that I need a little wider width. I ordered these Helen Plus's in a 38, gray. They fit perfect! Love the color, which is more of a metallic color and will go with everything. Wish the wider ones were cuter and not so earthy/birky. But the comfort is worth it. Very pricey, but I think they will be worth it.

I guess I'm joining the chorus about the toe ring being too tight. The right shoe fit fine but the left shoe big toe area was about a 1/2" smaller and felt like a toe tourniquet! I have regular Mephisto Helens but thought I'd try a pair with a little more room for toe spread. Had the big toe area not been so tight, these would have been great. After reading other reviews, this seems to be a common problem with Helen Plus and is either a design or manufacturing flaw. Don't recommend.

I've worn Mephisto shoes for almost 20 years. Originally made in Belgium and Portugal and were wonderful. Now they are made in France (so they say) but narrower. I placed a very old Helen shoe's base to the newer ones and there's 1/2 inch on each side narrower now. I ordered the wide (Plus) here and they are the width of the original shoes but the toe is curved inward way to far and has no arch support like they were famous for. The toe opening is tight and the shoe is stiff.

These are my favorite. I needed a good walking sandal for an upcoming vacation. I ordered the regular width which were slightly too narrow. I was hesitant to order the wider one after reading reviews that the big toe area was too tight. I ordered anyway and they fit great. I'd say my big toe is 'normal' in size. I wear them all the time. They're very comfortable. I do wish they offered more colors.

The width is so perfect. for me, what is considered a wide width is perfectly normal width, I wish ALL shoes were this width and I would buy them all. However, the 38 length compared to all my other 38's was longer end to end. My foot did not sit right in the back or up to the front. and the 37's were too short? Really wanted them to work. sent them back. nice quality and comfort.
