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.

For years I have wanted a pair of Mephisto Helen but always hesitated because of the price. But, I finally decided this was the year to give them a try and I absolutely love this pair of sandals. The Desert Buffalo Leather is just lovely and the comfort is outstanding. I regret that I did not try these sandals sooner. I wear an 8.5 and the size 39 was perfect.

I need a shoe with good arch support. I have a bad back and a pronate. You can tell it's a well made shoe that will provide arch support for a long time. The sandal is a little heavier and stiffer than some sandals, but that is due to the quality materials used. Still a much better option for me than wearing a tennis shoe to the zoo or the park.

I have worn these shoes for years., I think these are slightly more narrow and have less arch support than the ones I have purchased in the past. My hope is that the manufacturer is Not starting to cut corners. If this becomes a trend, I will not buy their product.

It's not news to Mephisto customers that these sandals are the most comfortable on the market. I have a high arch and these are much more comfortable than its competitors. I did want to say that I took a chance on the grey etna and it is fabulous. It has a subtle shimmery surface that makes it much more versatile than a flat gray. It works much better for a slightly dressy look than the more basic colors I usually get. And about Zappos - what can I say? I ordered a 39 instead of a 40, and it turned out to be a bit small. I did the easy exchange in seconds. Zappos just has the best service of any on-line company - and I buy everything on line! Another plus: I rarely find that the shoe or boot I want is out of stock. Zappos does a great job of maintaining enough inventory for its uber-fast service. Keep up the good work!
