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.

This is my second pair, I had my first ones a year or so and really loved them. Ordered both in Grey Etna..Love the color!! I was very disappointed though, that the arch support was not as good as the first pair. Even after being worn a year, my first pair has more support. Unfortunately I have worn the second pair a couple times, so I can't send them back. Wish I would have tested them more before wearing.

I will give them a full five stars in about a month; they are a little stiff out of the box, and while I never have trouble with thong type shoes, these cut on the strap between the big and second toe. I know they will soften and conform to my feet over time, but don't buy them to wear the first day of a trip without a backup pair that are broken in.

I'd also recommend: naot, pikolinos

The strap between the toes is uncomfortable. I love the look of the shoe and the color is beautiful. So sorry that it is not wider so that it would not bother the toes.

I took the recommendation to size up when ordering (my normal shoe size is 8-1/2) so I got a 9. Wrong! The shoe bed seemed to fit okay, but the instep was so deep that the sandals would drop off my feet when I walked even at the tightest buckle hole. Exchanged for an 8 and now I'm so happy, they fit as they should, and the brown Nairobi color is so nice, kind of a purple-ish brown, and of course very comfortable. Thank you Zappos for the extraordinary service!

LOVE these sandals. They are a bit pricey, but so comfortable and look great. I am very happy (and so are my feet).
