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.

I own five pairs of these. They are wonderful functional shoes, albeit pretty unsightly. They are so functionally perfect that I am willing to put up with how they look (my family hates when I wear them!). Despite the other reviews, these are the least durable shoes that I own. That is why I have five pairs. The soles wear out in about three months before I need a resole - and that is with routinely switching pairs. The Mephisto representative at one of their stores finally agreed (after getting over his brand loyalty) - the entire sole, while thick, has a very thin layer of base rubber. Once the tread on this base is quickly gone, if used more, the shoe will be useless if you got through the first layer before resoling them. Thankfully, for a resoling fee I routinely have new shoes. They are entirely comfortable but hideously ugly!

I'd also recommend: Finn Comfort, Dansko

Too constructed, everywhere impinging on my feet. I could feel all parts of the shoe. Tiring and inflexible Toe box is too narrow for me. I would advise getting half a size larger if you have moderately wide feet in the front. Nowhere near as comfortable as my Sam sandals, which do not have such inflexibility and narrowness of construction. I like my Patagonia Maui chukkas (discontinued) much more. That sole does not offer arch support, but it and the entire shoe are pliable and conforming, which the Match is not.

I'd also recommend: some offerings of Patagonia

The most comfortable casual shoe I have ever worn. This is my second pair. Great support. Just came back for a month long trip to Asia and, even with all the walking and stairs they were perfect.

Comfortable. Breathes well. Heavy shoes due to thick rubber sole. Can wear all day long without any discomfort.

Yes, very good shoe, unique, light, you forget you even have it on. It feels like you are seating with your heals on a 1 inch door threshold and the rest of your foot is on level ground. I could see the improvement in posture after prolonged use. Negative would be obviously the price, which i have to say Zappos agreed to make a one time courtesy price match, and that made push the buy button. Is it worth it? I would have to say no, but yes in the $200 range. If you look at Rockport World Tour shoes you will see the 95% resemblance for $100. I also own that shoes and must say feels identical to Mephisto except the sole is more inflexible. Cheaper, almost as good shoes out there, but if you want to try the best and then look for an alternative that could be a viable option. Overall, i would recommend it!

I'd also recommend: Rockport World Tour and Hush Puppies G Zero
