Great Sandal - The Helen is my first pair of Mephisto sandals. Wore them straight from the box. LOVE THEM. Nice quality leather. I have long narrow feet with high arches. The 9 1/2 fits perfectly. They're light too!

Love at first step - Talk about happy feet. These are lighter than air, so comfy, but firm, and the bottoms of my feet don't get hot. Have literally worn them (except to bed) for 2 days straight now. No blisters, no signs of potential blisters. This is the shoe that keeps this hippy from going barefoot. Still love my Earths, and Birks but Mephisto takes it to a whole 'nother level.

Great sandal - The recommendation to get one size larger was good. The shoe fit very well except for my foot having a slight shift with a bunion that made it move my heel on that foot slightly into the "cupped" area of the footbed. It/I am adjusting to that and the shoe is comfortable.

No more heel spur/plantar fasciitis - I had problems with heel spurs and was fitted for orthotics, which did somewhat help. But when I started wearing Mephisto "Helen" sandals my problems disappeared. I have had NO pain since. I have recommended these sandals to several people who have found immediate results.

Great support. Great look. The Mephisto Helens are flattering to the foot and have almost as much arch support as my custom orthotics. The width across the toes is a tiny bit narrow for me so I've needed a half size larger to compensate. They are so wearable that I now have multiple pairs in various colors.

Working out well - I'm recovering from plantar fasciitis and I finally found one that seems to be working! I've only had them for about a month, but I haven't been feeling any tenderness since wearing them. My foot is also pretty flat on top, so the adjustable strap really helps! They seem to fit well with my high arches and the soft padding is nice as well. It's nice to finally get out of my sneakers fitted with custom orthotics and wear some sandals!

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE THEM! Ok, I just received my Mephistos Helen shoes and I LOVE them. They are so comfortable that I am wearing them around the house like my slippers. Now I have a very high arch which leads to a lot of pain if I don't have enough support and these fit the bill. I am actually surprised at how cute they look on. Nothing against Birkenstocks (sp??) but they look ugly on my feet, these look cute. I am normally a 7 1/2 and I ordered an 8 and it's like they were made for my feet. I'm very happy with my purchase and as usual with Zappos!

Super Sandals!! I have been wearing Mephisto "Helen" sandals for the last 11 years. My city feet needed comfort, a reliable footbed and help for my burning heels. The Mephisto sandal has never let me down. I, as well as my orthopedic surgeon, recommend this shoe for anyone who likes their feet and want to take care of them for the rest of their lives. Size up though, Mephisto european sizes are a size smaller.

Brands I'd also recommend: Nothing but Mephisto, all summer long!

Great sandal - This is my 2nd pair of this particular shoe. I bought the original in 2004 for a trip to Italy when I had a broken toe. I wore it exclusively for 24 days under all kinds of conditions. Even with the broken toe, I was able to keep up and keep going for the entire trip. It has a wonderful footbed and a sturdy sole.

Best sandle - I bought my first pair over 10yrs ago because I liked the look. I have been addicted to them ever since. They are the most durable, comfortable, quality sandle I have ever worn. Mine have been through everything and they hold up beautifully.

Aaaahhh, perfect right out of the box - This shoe is great the moment you put it on. I ordered a 37(size7) which is my normal size and I find it fits fine, really hugs my foot better than my Birkies ever did. I got the khaki exotic for a little flair. I have high arches and I find the arch support very good.

Sandals - This is a shoe I have worn out before and I was thrilled to find it on your website. I have a very high instep and have trouble finding a sandal that fits. This one is the only one that stays on with no effort.

My Favorite All Time shoe - I first discovered this shoe about 3 years ago. A gentlemen who I was involved with introduced me to it. He bought me my first pair. I no longer have him, but I still have the original pair and I have not used any other for casual use ever since. I will never be without them for the rest of my life and can't imagine traveling anywhere without my Helen Mephisto! I love them! I love them! I love them!!!! Thank you Mephisto for creating these wonderful shoes and thank you Sy for introducing me to them!

Great shoe - I love these shoes because they have more padding than Birks, but it has taken a while for them to mold to my foot. The first week was a bit uncomfortable, but they now fit like a charm. The run a little narrow in the toe area.

Mephisto Helen - These are the greatest sandals I've ever owned! I've worn out (2) pair over the past 10 years, walking throughout Europe, the US and French Polynesia. You can dress them up or down...they're perfect in most circumstances. The foot bed is a dream! They're my favorite travel and everyday sandals. I hope Mephisto never stops making them!

Wisconsin buyer - I have only worn these shoes one time but they seem very comfortable. I love Birkenstocks so thought I would give these a try as I’ve been trying to find some brown sandals for a long time. I have the distressed brown I think and they are a little shiny but still ok. Look good on and easy to walk in. I do wear a size 8 but ordered a 9 and they fit just fine.

Mephisto/Helen - I broke my foot last summer and had foot pain when I switched to sandals on vacation. I bought a pair of Mephisto/Helen sandals with orthotics support built in to the shoe and the pain went away. I loved them so much I bought a second pair.
