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.

These are sincerely the most comfortable sandals that I have ever worn. I am an 8½ or 9. I purchased a 39 which is my normal Birkenstocks size. These are a bit more narrow and a smidge shorter in length than Birkenstocks but still work. Well worth the price; in fact, I am ordering another pair in a different color! I have been a Zappos friend for 10 years, they cannot compare to any other online shoe company.

I'd also recommend: Birkenstocks, Born, Clarks

Love these shoes! I have been able to wear them all day from day one! I'm not sure that I agree with their sizing recommendation of going up a full size, I think a half size would have been fine.

The most comfortable sandal I've ever worn. Strong arch support, absorbent insole, adjustable strap for narrower or wider feet, great colors, and they look pretty too. This is my fifth pair. I wear a size 10-10.5 and the size 41 is perfect.

In response to the lady from Columbus, Ohio, who said she found the sandals to have an odor after a while....You can clean the foot bed. I washed mine with an enzyme cleaner and a brush, allowed them to dry overnight, and they were like new. Don't be afraid to wet the suede. When they are dry and you first put them on, they will feel a bit stiff. They soften up very quickly. Get those shoes out and enjoy them again!

This is my fifth pair of Helen sandals. I bought the black patent in the late 1990s and wore them for 14 years. I finally had to replace them. I also bought them in blue nubuck, red patent, and now the sparkly metallic. Comfort, comfort, comfort! I plan outfits around these shoes because they feel so good all day long. I can run in them! These sandals are truly worth the money..they last a long, long time. I'm a 7.5, and buy these in size 38. Perfect! Also, you can adjust the strap. 5 gold stars!
