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.

I absolutely love these sandals. I like them better than Birkenstocks. They are way more comfortable. And, while some Mephistos look like old lady shoes, these are very cute on. Every time I put them on, I go sigh because they feel so good. I am ordering a pair in another color for an upcoming trip. And of course I'm using Zappos because of their free shipping and free returns, not to mention great customer service. Thanks Zappos!

Very supportive and comfortable. Minimum break-in time. This silver color is spot-on! Goes with everything. I ordered my usual size. Strap is adjustable.

Shoes made noises -- definitely defective! Am returning these and repurchasing same shoe! These shoes are awesome but shouldn't squeak when walking!

These are great! I bought a pair of Mephistos last year and loved them but didn't get a chance to wear them that much due to the color not being neutral. I decided to go for this style in the Silver Nairobi color and I love them! The color of these are very cool - depending on the light, you can pick up a purple or a variety of blues in the leather. They will go with a variety of things I have and are incredibly comfortable. I can't wait to wear them on my upcoming trip to the Caribbean! I also love the fact that you can adjust the buckles to your liking. I feel like buying another pair.

I have purchased a pair of Helen in waxy black every year for the last 6 years. I wear them every day when it's warm here. I pretty much live in them. they take a little time to break in as they come very stiff and it makes you feel like you will have discomfort wearing them, but before you know it they are fitting like a good friend. I have a wide foot and usually wear a size 9 in shoes. I have had foot reconstructive surgery years ago and this is one of my favorite brands - Mephisto. In this brand I wear a 39. it fits perfectly. Do not let them get wet! They will stretch out and be ruined. and make sure you buy some cork life and apply whenever you see the cork look dull. This will prolong life.

I'd also recommend: Birkenstock
