These are beautiful! I always love the Helen's. I saw a similar design in another brand, tried them, not the same as Mephisto! Thick leather, thick anatomical footbed, firm support, great arch. I had intended to send this pair back simply because I bought another pair with these, and only needed the 1 pair, but I gotta have 'em. They are gorgeous in this color, pictures don't do them justice. I can be comfortable & stylish at the same time. Thanks again Zappos, you are winners!

I am on my fourth pair. I have narrow feet that are very flat. I was suffering with plantar fasciitis. These were recommended to me and they saved me. Even with flat feet. It made all the difference. They have great arch support. Now I keep buying them over and over. I live in Florida so I am in sandals year round.

This is the first time that I have bought from Zappos and I could not be happier. I have a wide toe, narrow heel, super flat feet and bunions. These provide great support. My only complaint is that the arch hurt my feet; but my back, legs and hips do not. So it is a trade off. I am usually barefoot whenever possible, so I am sure that my feet will adjust. These shoes are like walking barefoot but on soft surface. I absolutely love them!

Most comfortable sandals ever. I have had foot pain and some foot issues and these sandals eliminate that completely, when I try to wear other sandals, my feet are very unhappy. I have multiple pairs and love them so much, I only wish they made this foot bed in some more cutting edge fashion styles. I don't think they are very stylish, but I can't give up the comfort they give me. I hope they make more stylish options soon with this same comfort! I thought the width was perfect, I think I have a normal width foot.

I've been wearing these sandals for 15 years, one of the best on the market. My podiatrist said they were one of the best shoes I could put on my foot! They are very comfortable!

I had a pair of these sandals about 10 years ago but somewhere along the way they were sent to the thrift shop. While visiting my married daughter I saw her own 10 year old pair of these and borrowed them for a few hours. I had forgotten how comfortable they are! I mean, really comfortable. But here's the reason I bought a new pair: except for the inner sole which looked worn, the outer sole and the leather straps looked brand new. I actually thought she'd just bought herself a new pair of sandals. When I realized how the trustworthy Mephisto brand looked so good 10 years later, I knew I wanted an investment in a good shoe that supports my plantar fasciitis and my arthritic toe, is super comfortable, and must be attractive enough that my very cool young daughter also wears! And this time, they won't be going to the thrift shop. I'll probably get tired of them before they wear out in which case, I'll retire them to the back of the closet, only to pull them out 10 years later!

These are super comfortable! I absolutely love them! They run a size smaller, I am a 7 in sandals, but got these in 8 and they fit perfect. They are very soft and more flexible than the other similar sandals that I have tried. The strap is what holds the foot in perfect place, it does not feel like you have to hold the sandal it holds itself. Great design, look, and comfort.

These are very comfortable. Excellent quality. A little bit of break in time for the toe area, but fine after a day or so.

These are a cute, comfortable, well made shoe and there's a reason that the reviews are so vast & so positive. Try them, I doubt you'll be disappointed. I wish I hadn't waited so long myself!

These fit like a dream and are so comfortable. They look so sophisticated too and very grecian. I sent this pair back only because I already had the bronze color and these were just a tad too close in color to them.

Love this shoe - it is even nicer now (due to a cushioned insole) than when I first bought it! However, I now have bunions and the strap that goes around the big toe rubs it and boy, is it ever uncomfortable!

I love these shoes! I wore Burks for many years and I feel like I've graduated to something more comfortable and more padded with similar or better support! I consistently wear size 40 in Mephistos when I wear a 9N in other brands.

This is my third pair of Helen sandals. I wear other styles/brands too, but these are so comfortable that I almost use them as slippers. My defaults seem to be Mephisto Helen in warm weather and Sanita Professional in cold weather! The stellar Zappos service is beyond words!

First of all, Zappos is great, professional and helpful. I purchased Helen in a size up, wasn't sure about the fit, but everyone said they run small so I went with it. Decided to try the smaller size, much better fit. The tan ones I got started to squeak, I believe that means the shank is broken, Zappos returned and replaced. Love my new shoes, very comfortable, great support, color is just like the pic. and no squeak! Also got the black waxy leather, very classy!

I love Mephisto and these are my favorites. I'd wear them year round if I could. And one of the best things about Mephisto is that when the shoes finally get old, you can send them back for a refurbishing and get an essentially new pair of shoes for a little more than half the cost.

I was very impressed with my experience at Zappos online. I purchased shoes I was familiar with and knew my size and what I wanted, but was confused as to color and finish/texture. I ordered what I thought I wanted, but wound up not liking the finish and Zappos paid for the shipping to/from on both shipments when I returned them and reordered. I ended up using the chat with a sales person feature. He was extremely helpful. I would definitely use Zappos again, not just for shoes but for other products.

I normally wear 11 narrow (42 in Birkenstock sandals) but thanks to other reviews I ordered 12 (there is no narrow) but interestingly enough they fit perfectly. I have worn Birkenstock sandals for several years because they were the only ones that had good arch support and fit my long narrow foot, but based on reviews for these shoes saying that they tend to run narrow, I decided to try them out. They are worth the price as they are very comfortable and well made.

I'm on my feet all day at work on a tile floor. I wear orthotics with closed shoes. I love Mephisto. They provide great support for my high arches and, on the Helene sandal, the band across the top of the sandal provides additional support. Not for a wide foot. I would highly recommend them!

I was replacing a Mephisto Helen that I had worn out. Zappos.com had exactly what I wanted in the size I wanted and shipped right away. I was delighted with both Zappos and my new Mephistos.

I have been having trouble with my feet. Getting mid-aged is no fun but I figured maybe these would be an alternate to what the Dr. recommended. Certainly less unattractive. The came and they are actually kind of cute. Even my 17 yr old thought they were cool. I have worn them every day this summer and they have great arch support. A good choice.

This is my fifth pair of these sandals. I have them in different colors and a variety of leathers. I could wear them every day. They are not as big around the toe as Birkenstocks, and the overall effect is a little more refined as a result so they do not look bad with a sundered during the summer.
