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 have only been able to wear these shoes in the house because it is cold outside. I feel like they give me better posture and seem to be a great walking shoe. Can't wait for spring to start wearing them everyday. They will go well with capris and summer pants. They do not look clunky at all. I love them!!! They fit true to size. Do not size down.

This is my second pair - so comfortable right out of the box, durable and nice looking. I can walk many miles in these sandals because they support my foot so well. I'm normally a size 10, with a narrower foot. I went up to size 11 and they fit perfectly. The bigger size gives my toes the room they need. I tried a 10 and my toes rubbed on the upturned front edge. The foot bed turns up around the edges. You have to be inside of that upturn or your toes will get sore.

This is a very nice shoe! Looks very sharp! Mephisto is a very comfortable shoe. I have a very hard time finding comfortable shoes. I had a knee replacement 2 years ago. Merrell shoes also are extremely comfortable. I can not say enough how wonderful Zappos are to deal with. They go out of their way to please you! Always when I call Zappos, the sales people are so nice. It a real pleasure doing business with Zappos. Great company!

I'd also recommend: merrell

I have been wearing 'Helen' since 2005 and it's predecessor with the same footbed before that. I have owned seven pairs. I just bought two more, and they and the pair I bought last year are of much lower quality from my older ones. There is much less cushioning and support, and the top straps are thinner. Some of my very old worn out 'Helen's' have more support and cushioning and arch support than these. I'm saddened by the deterioration and that the esteemed brand Mephisto would lower its standards.

Wanted this shoe last year and didn't order it but decided to do so in anticipation of an upcoming trip. Like how they look and they fit me much better than the Birkenstock sandal that I was also tried. Thanks, Zappos for making it so easy to compare sizes and styles.
