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.

LOVE the shoes, but almost returned them. I have narrow, flat feet and had to have another hole punched in the band to hold my foot. The strap now goes ALL the way to the base of the shoe, but doesn't drag.

I'd also recommend: Naot, Birkenstock

The ONLY shoe I have worn in the last 15 years is this style of Mephisto. I have walked in London for ten hours and never one twinge from my feet. I have strolled over the cobblestones in Dublin and never an ache. I am grateful to the shoemakers for their expertise. Every year I order two pair and never tire because they are so comfortable.

I love these shoes. I have a very narrow foot and they fit perfectly. What impressed me the most was Zappos customer service. I ordered a size 8 and had to return them for a size 9. I packed them up entered the return information that same morning and received the size 9 shoes the next afternoon couldn't believe the turn around service.

I'd also recommend: Birkenstocks

Okay. This is a review comparing my new Mephisto shoes with my Birkenstocks. I ordered these shoes a few weeks ago and they are the perfect summer slip on: comfortable, stylish, easy to get on and off. When you first try on and compare Mephistos to Birkenstocks, the Mephistos feel more comfortable. However, I would say that, after a few weeks, the Birkenstocks wear in better and get more comfortable whereas the Mephistos stay pretty much the same, in fact the leather that has contact with the bottom of your foot becomes less comfortable. If the Birkenstocks had looked as good on my feet (ah, vanity!), I would be inclined to return to Birks from now on. But in general, they are both awesome shoes. The question is how well the Mephistos will weather time. I have had one pair of Birks for 15 years and they are going strong.

I'd also recommend: Dansko, Giraudon, Fly London, Birks
