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 love the Mephisto Helen, however, after wearing them just two hours, the silver along the sides was coming off. I am returning them with a tear in my eye because I love the color, fit and comfort. I am going to order a different color - fingers crossed.

I usually wear a 37 in Euro sizing. I had to return this sandal for a 36. Great support and virtually no break in period. Can dress this shoe up or down!

I love these shoes. I bought a brown pair 2 years ago and love them, too. Zappos delivered on time and it was so easy ordering on line and tracking my shoe delivery. I will definitely order from Zappos in the future and not mess around trying to find a store close to where I live. I tried to buy these shoes at a store on Pearl St. in Boulder, Co but the man working there could have cared less about selling me ANY shoes and only had 2 styles of the Helen but neither in my size. Why bother and I would have had to pay their sales tax. So I saved $$ by ordering from Zappos not to mention the hassle of navigating in Boulder which is a nightmare with no parking and the new bicycle paths.

This is my second pair of Helen shoes. My first pair were as good as new after 4 years till my new puppy found them as irresistible is I do. My new pair will be kept behind closed closet doors. After sever wearing shorts these shoes form to your feet. Great support and comfort while walking. I'm a 7-7 1/2 but an 8/38 are the perfect fit.

OK I've only walked around the block a few times, so they're still not fully road tested. But they fit exactly like my crumbling 20 year old Mephistos -- the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. They're true to size, at least for size 9. And the strap even adjusts to cradle my rather fat feet. I ordered Silver Venise with my heart in my mouth, fearing that the shimmery color might make me look cheap or gaudy. But the flat, practical style prevents that. Instead they make me look like Superwoman or a very athletic angel or like the yogini I truly am. I can't see myself taking these shoes off... EVER!
