Best sandal - I have about 8 pairs of Helen's. They have the best arch support for those of us who need to take the stress off our heels. My heel spur has not hurt in years. I use these sandals for casual and dressy....all year round!

The Perfect Sole - The soles of these sandals are heavenly! They're soft, but supportive, and quickly form to the shape of your foot. Plus, they DON'T STICK to the bottom of your foot. I'm still getting used to the strap rubbing across my second toe, but am determined to conquer this small annoyance because the bottoms feel so good.

2nd Pr of Helens As Great as the First - I wore my first pair of Mephisto Helens for about 4 years and though they are still the most comfortable shoe I own, they started to look a little ratty in nubuck. This time I picked a smooth leather finish that will be easier to clean and will probably still be wearing them 8 years from now. Love these shoes. They are a little stiff at first but loosen up quickly and become like your own feet.

These shoes were comfortable first try but my little toes were rubbing on the lip of the side of the shoe, was afraid to keep them for the price if they never broke in. Otherwise they would be good, Mephisto needs to make them more flat, get rid of the deep lip around the edges. I also ordered the 40 previously then ordered the 41 which fit better, did have to go up a size. Still, that stupid lip edge!

The arch support is wonderful! These feel delightful on and under my feet! I have various troubles with my feet and am always in search of the perfect shoe. These have perfect arch support, are soft and were blister-free right out of the box. I bought the camel and like the color with jeans and with khakis.

Not very sexy, but gets the job done in style - If you are looking for a supportive, sturdy, comfortable walking sandal that can take some abuse, look no further. I have high arches and wear orthotics in the winter and these are the only sandals I've found that I can both wear to walk my dog and go to the mall and not be in pain or feel like a total fashion loser. If they feel stiff at first, hang in there, they'll soften with only a few wearings. Order your normal sandal size and you should be fine.

These shoes are very comfortable to wear and look great on the foot. I have narrow feet and narrow ankles and hesitate to wear a shoe like this with a skirt. They look great.

Mephisto's Helen- These shoes come in wonderful colors and are so comfortable. Sandals with arch supports, an oxymoron! I have very narrow feet and can strap them down to fit, another reason I live in these all summer.

I love this sandal!!! I now have 5 pairs of the Helen. I first bought a pair in a pricey shoe store 6 years ago. I walked all over France in them. These are the "shoes" I have with me all the time. I'm a teacher and I have years of constant standing. My arches are shot, my heels painful. The arch support is the saving grace. I feel like I'm getting a foot massage at the end of the day when I slip into them. If your feet hurt, you'll love them too! Plus they look great and are well made. My chiropractor told me that the cupped heel is also necessary for problem feet.

Very Pleased- This is the third pair of these shoes I have bought over the course of about 5 years. I love these shoes. They are very good for those with foot problems. They have excellent arch support and I think they are way better than Birkenstocks. I personally purchase these shoes a full size smaller than closed toe shoes. Zappos service is awesome!

I love Mephisto's Helen! This is the fourth pair of Mephisto Helens that I have bought. They are so comfy that I wear them in preference to any other shoes. They are comfortable enough to walk a couple of miles in- and are great if you are in a job which needs you to be on your feet for long periods!
