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 6th pair of Helens. While I ordered the same size, these are roomier across the the foot than all others. The shiny material (man made) is also the stiffest and least foot friendly. I have worked the underside edges with Vaseline as recommended by our cobbler and have even used a soft emery board along the under edges in an attempt to soften the top strapping. Thus far, little has helped but I love the glamour factor and will keep at it.

I just love this shoe. I wear it every day during the summer days. I can walk far like amusement parks and festivals feeling more comfort than any other summer sandal I own.

I have worn Fitflops for the last 3-4 years and wanted a change in style. The Mephisto Helen is a nice break yet feels about the same with regards to being a flip flop with arch support and one that actually stays put on your foot. I usually wear an 8 to 8.5, and found that in this case, the 8.5 was perfect for me (I recommend going up the half size if you are in the middle.) I love the assortment of colors/textures. I did not experience any rubbing or redness even on the first day.

I'd also recommend: Fitflop, Birkenstock

Comfortable, true to size, I wear 8.5 /9 medium size and I purchase a 38, after the second wear you don't want to take it off. Worth the money. If you have wide feet, get the plus size not one size up.

Most comfortable shoe I've worn. Just came back from a trip where we walked at least 10 miles per day and wore these every day.
