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 wore these on a trip to Italy. Felt like I was walking on a wood board and made my feet ache. The leather between my toes cut my foot and no matter how I adjusted the shoe, the shoe kept pushing my foot back due to my high arch. Horrible and expensive mistake.

These Mephistos are incredible. Fit is true to size and no breaking in is needed. My last pair lasted for at least 3 years and I wore them often. The sole is very thick and provides a lot of support for a sandal. I can walk all day in them and never tire. The arch support is substantial, which relieves the need for my orthotics - that is truly amazing. I'll wear these forever if they're available. The best sandal I've ever had.

This is my 3rd pair in maybe 20 years. They're my around the house, super-marketing, cooking shoes. Indispensable!

I'm extremely happy with my purchase of the Mephisto sandals. I have knee trouble and have used these sandals for quite a few years. They are very comfortable and offer the support I need. Though I wear them for the support, I have received many compliments on them over the years.

I'm not a sandals person but needed sandals for walking around Europe. These were comfy right out of the box. The brown saddle were not as clunky looking as other brands, like Birkenstocks, but they are just as comfortable, if not more.

Love, love, love this model Mephisto. I live in San Diego, so have few weather issues and therefore literally live in these shoes. So much so that I get annoyed when I have to "dress up" for any event and need to change shoes. A warning though: all of the soft leather Mephisto Helen models(at least every pair I have ever owned)stretch out after only wearing them for a couple/three months, however the patent leather model lasts very well. I usually buy one ever year, but again, I really and truly live in these shoes. I highly recommend them for their comfort.
