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.
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.
