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.

Have worn this style for many years and have had many pairs. For the first time ever, I am sending them back. They are so tight around the toe strap that I could not get them on easy and when I did they made my toes swell, because they were to skimpy. I think that the pair that I received are probably seconds and just not cut or assembled correctly.

Fifth pair of Mephistos (third of this style, different colors). Been wearing Mephistos for twenty years. Great comfort, super arch support. I'd really like five more pairs (but don't need them). They do not cause leg fatigue like flat sandals. I like that I can tighten the buckle as they do stretch a bit with wearing.

Wow! So comfortable. I could walk for miles in these sandals. The turquoise boa is really attractive. They don't look clunky on my feet which are on the narrow side of medium. I usually wear an 8 1/2 to 9 in dress shoes, 9 1/2 in athletic shoes. A 39 is perfect for me.

I'd also recommend: ECCO, Clarks

I am so glad to have these sandals. Due to nerve damage, surgery, and plantar fasciitis, I have difficulty with fit. These sandals support my feet well and have a short break in period. They are better feeling than my previous Birkenstocks. A bit thicker and softer. They have become my go to shoes for summer. The adjustable strap allows me to wear a slide that stays put on my narrow feet. The pricing prevents me from purchasing more colors, but I would certainly like to!

These shoes are very comfortable, and I tried them in three colors: Nubuck (camel), blue waxy, and light sand perle patent. They were all very comfortable, and the fit was great. The style is a little heavy looking, which is why I liked the Nubuck camel the best--it didn't "stand out." However, I think that particular pair had a defect. The left shoe's top strap had a large gap on top, while the right one didn't. The style can be a bit slimming at the same time since the top straps go backward at an angle instead of straight across the toes. It leaves your toes rather unencumbered. One pair's thong strap was a bit uncomfortable, while others' were fine. Just didn't fall in love with them.

I'd also recommend: Keen, Dansko
