I have these shoes in both black and red. They are the perfect summer comfort shoe and style is, in my opinion, more attractive than the Birkenstocks.

I usually wear Birkenstocks in the summer but decided to try these. I found them to be firmer and more supportive than the Birks. They're also turning out to be more comfortable although I haven't gone on any real long walks yet. I normally wear a 7 narrow and got them in the 37. They were just big and narrow enough. I don't think someone with a wider foot could wear them. As others have said I wish they came in 37.5. All in all this is an attractive shoe and I'm happy with my purchase.

I love these sandals. I have an old pair that I have been wearing for over 4 years and it was definitely time to replace them. After researching my options I decided that I simply wanted the same sandal again.

I really love these shoes, however I wear a womens 12 and I ordered the 13 and it was to small. So I would say that these shoes run 1 to 1 1/2 sizes small.

from castle rock, co

This is a beautiful sandal especially in this summer wear-with-everything color. Unfortunately one of my feet is a little bigger than the other and these are not quite long enough. As others have said, inside the shoebox it notes recommended roominess; my toes and heel were where the room should be. Too bad, not available in bigger size. Order early!

I got the platinum/gold shoe and they were beautiful! The leather footbed was heavenly but the upper was rigid and cut into my foot after only wearing them around the house for a few minutes. They're headed back to Zappos and I will try a softer leather style.

The arch support is the best and really helped my feet. I used to beat myself up over the price but now realize women spend a lot more to destroy their feet. Mephistos keep my feet going all day and my plantars at bay.

I have several pairs of Mephisto sandals. They are wonderful, comfortable and have great arch support. Zappos has a great selection and I received my order very quickly. I also appreciated the coupon which helped make the shoes more affordable.

I am not impressed with these shoes. They are giving me blisters and are not as comfortable as my much cheaper Teva sandals. I am really disappointed.

Just wanted to say how much I enjoy shopping with Zappos first of all and then to let everyone know if they are looking for beautiful yellow sandals, this is the one! The color is perfect...not too bold and the fit is amazing! This is my 4th pair of Mephisto sandals and they are so comfortable right out of the box! Quality is superior and price is very fair. Don't be afraid to try these...I think you too will love them!

I love these shoes but I really need a half size. They are cushy and supportive but just a little too small in an 8 and a little too large in a 9. I would have bought them in a couple of colors if they had fit properly.

Love these! They are probably my 15th pair of Mephisto Helens over the past 10+ years - and currently pair #9 in my closet. Comfortable, reliable, & lots of choice in color, texture, & leathers. I have wide feet & high instep - but these work wonderfully. I get compliments on the style all the time.

I was looking for a supportive indoor shoe. I have a wide foot and a very high arch. These aren't the cutest but they look okay and have nice arch support and are comfortable. The thong isn't as annoying as on flip flops because the strap goes to the outside of your big toe as well as the thong between big and second toes. Mephisto makes high quality shoes and I expect these to last many years.

This is my third pair of Mephisto Helen's. I have to have a very supportive shoe (I wear an orthopedic insert in my daily shoes). These sandals feel almost as good as my inserts. I hope I haven't made it sound like these shouldn't be worn by someone with normal feet. I feel they are excellent footwear for anyone.

My favorite shoes. I have been wearing this Helen style of Mephisto shoes for 19 years. They are the most comfortable shoes. They are great for walking or just standing. The arch is perfect for me.

I chose the silver Nairobi and love the pattern. Classy with a tiny bit of bling. I measure 6.5, ordered the 7 & they fit perfectly. They're light and the support feels especially great under my arch. On the expensive side but fits the bill for what I wanted in a sandal, so I'm happy.

I wanted to keep these as the footbed felt absolutely wonderful. However the toe strap cut into my foot and felt uncomfortable. I couldn't risk waiting to see if the leather would stretch so sadly I had to return them. Thank you Zappos for the easy return.

I was recently diagnosed with plantar fasciitis and was looking for a comfortable sandals with good arch support. These are nice sandals but there are not quite supportive enough for my feet. I bought the snake pattern with gold and they are super cute. As others have mentioned sizing is very small. I normally wear a size 11 or 42 in European sizes but I had to size up to 43 and they're a little bit long but the 42's just barely fit. As far as wearing them in- I did get a blister on the top of my foot after I wore them for a few hours. Since then I've been wearing them around the house and they're okay but I was expecting more for the price and the rave reviews.

I own several pairs of Mephisto Helen sandals. They are the most comfortable sandals that I have ever owned, and love them all - until I ordered the off white Helen! It is unbelievably uncomfortable, I did not want to walk further than across the room in these. I don't know if it was the stiff leather, or the fact that they felt a size bigger. Even the footbed felt uncomfortable. I exchanged for a nubuck leather in camel, and I am sure that I will love those.

Brands I'd also recommend: All other soft leather or nubuck Mephisto Helens! (I particularly like navy nubuck)
