I used to own a shoe store and sold Mephistos. I have had both France production and Portugal manufactured and I personally have not found any great difference. The shoes I wear are the Match. I have 8 pair-7 black and one white. The white ones are 16 years old and the blacks are anywhere from 5 to 17 years. I find that when you buy quality shoes you can have them resoled and have the heel portion repaired with no impediment to the fit or comfort of the shoe. I am about due for new white ones. The economics of an expensive pair of shoes is 17 years divided into the cost is a couple tens per year. You can't even buy cheap runners for that price and have anywhere near the comfort,support or durability. A big reason is the leather and the breathabilty of the shoe. Thanks Peter J. Hebert formerly of White Rock Shoe Service!

Mephisto Match Walking Shoe - A relatively comfortable shoe, but the upper edge of the back, the part that surrounds the ankle, is a bit too rigid; the rigidness cuts into the ankle somewhat, making it difficult to wear the shoe all day.

Comfort and Style... First things first: I own two pairs; one in brown and 1 in white; but that is about style (white for summer). The main issue with the Match is extreme comfort. These are about the most comfortable walking shoes made today. They are very well made, strong stable sole, and thick, strong leather. Treated, they can last a lifetime. Always use cedar tree shoes with Mephisto. The white can be kept clean with Mephisto white polish (which is a leather conditioner and keeps the leather supple and resistant to water), and normal cleaning. These are an expensive investment and worth cleaning when you are at the end of the day. With Mephistos resoling policy, if you wear them down to nothing, you basically get a new pair for about 1/2 the price (Mephistoresole.com). Mephisto shoes, therefore, are an investment in the health of your feet, as well as your legs, back, and neck. Some with chronic headaches find that a good pair of shoes takes care of that. Mephisto fit a bit large, but this is done by design, as most Americans wear shoes too tight. After a short time wearing Mephistos, you will understand that they should be a bit larger than what you are used to. Some slight imperfections can be expected. I wear no other brand.

I'd also recommend: Mephisto Allrounder Como, Mephisto Battler

The toe space in this shoe is too narrow for me. The footbed is not near as comfortable as their sandals are (I have 3 pairs of those).

Kill the LOGO's... This is an excellent shoe. Solid, comfortable, and reasonably light. I had a pair of Ecco's previously, which were light and very easy to walk in, but they never felt solid and they leaked.. However, the Mephisto does make you wear their logo. This is out of place on a $300 shoe. If you're into showing-off, perhaps you'll be happy. But... Reflect that those who really know, don't need the logo to tell.. And those who don't know aren't worth impressing... Mephisto... Lose the LOGO!
