The most comfortable sandals you'll ever buy. I have wide feet and a very high instep and after having foot surgery this is the only sandal I can wear. Great arch support. Lots of great color options. After a while they loosen up but that's no problem because you can just adjust the strap! I've worn Mephistos for years; however, since my surgery I've had to switch from the Ularia to the Helen. Mephisto sandals are the best and last forever. It's just a matter of finding the right one for you!

I have worn Mephisto Helen for more than 12 years and have always loved them... until the last purchase I made. My feet stink every time after wearing them and they have literally disintegrated (both pairs, purchased at the same time) within 6 months. Extremely disappointing given that they have been my all-time favorite for years, but I won't order them again.

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 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.

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'd also recommend: Naot, Dansko, Wolky

I now own four pairs of Mephisto Helen sandals. They are the most comfortable sandal I have ever worn with an excellent arch support due to the cork layer. I definitely recommend these shoes.
