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 look but, unfortunately, even when widened to the last hole, they are not wide enough for my very small, very wide feet...

Great color, comfortable and well made. I got the narrow as this type of shoe can sometimes feel like they're "swimming" on my foot and it's perfect. I was hesitant to keep the sandal at first because the top leather was a bit stiff but, it relaxed after one wearing.

I bought two pairs of these as I have had another pair for over two years and wear them all the time. These are great for my arch support and never bug my feet. I wore them walking for 12 hours on vacation and never had blisters and did not have to worry about the slit between by toes as it is very comfortable. There is no breaking these in, like some shoes, going from winter to spring. These are ready to go and completely comfortable. You won't regret walking your legs off in these. I put a lot of miles on mine and I love them!

I was so excited when I read all of the reviews about how great the arch was and how comfortable this sandal was, I couldn't wait to get it. It took 3 steps after I got it, to decide it was nothing short of walking on a board with very little arch support. I guess my high arches are higher than everyone else's. Comfort to me, means that the shoe bend with the foot. This shoe has absolutely no bend in it at all. By the way, it won't let me change the stars for overall, as I accidentally clicked on 3. It should be a 1 or 2.

I'd also recommend: Mizuno, keen

Really nice sandals. Stylish plus good support. Love that combination! And Mephistos tend to last a long time. My only issue: Zappos was out of the nubuck in my size, so I tried 2 pairs. One in my regular size in nubuck and one in the the black waxed leather in a size larger. The larger size fit, but the waxed leather rubbed my foot uncomfortably around the toes. The nubuck was much softer and more comfortable, but the foot bed was too small. And yes, these do run small.

I'd also recommend: Think!, Sofft, Taos, Naot
