Best Sandals Ever - Since I bought my first pair I have only bought Mephisto's Helen. I have 5 pairs and hope you never discontinue the style. They are a perfect fit for my feet.

Great shoes but watch the sizing! I have always worn a euro size 38, in dansko, birkenstock and other euro brands. I bought the size 8, and I find the arch is in the right place but is much narrower and shorter in the toe box. I'll try a size 9 the next time I order, and I definitely will buy more Helen when my size/color is available. No more aching calves, no more waking up in the middle of the night with cramping feet and calves!!! Hurrah!!!

Great arch support! I now own a number of Mephisto & Birkenstock products, due to high arches, among other things. This particular style has the highest arches of all footwear I've bought, owned or tried on!

Great sandals - This shoe has become even more comfortable by wearing since the leather softened and adjusted to my foot especially between the toes. I like the soft footbed.

Whidbey Island Walker - I've owned a pair of Mephisto Helens for about 5 years and they are my favorite sandal - period. They look good, feel good, and are well worth the price because they just get better with age. I recently bought a pair for my sister's birthday, and she is now a big fan, too. I'd recommend these to anyone who is interested in a great all-around sandal - they are simply the best!

Mephisto Helen - LOVE IT, LOVE IT. The only thing wrong with this shoe is that I can't wear it year round. Most (I repeat) most comfortable shoe I have ever worn. I am ordering my 4th pair - not because they wear out but because I want a pair in every color. It does run a little narrower than most but that is great for me since I have very narrow feet.

Most comfortable sandals ever - These sandals are super comfortable. I've bought them before, wore them almost everyday in the summer for 3 years then had to replace them. They are really durable and well worth the price.

Helenistic comfort - The Helen is a shoe that makes me feel as though I'm not wearing shoes. It gives great arch support and fits to the foot as though it were part of it. One of the greatest Mephisto I've tried.

Very comfortable! These are great shoes for everyday and my feet love me for it. I bought a the correct size for my foot, but these are alittle bit loose on the strap, the adjustable strap helps.

from philadelphia, pa

Attractive and comfortable. These have great arch support and look good on the foot. I did have to order a full size up, which I don't normally have to do. I think it's because of the heel cup. I probably could have worn a half size, but mephistos don't seem to come in half sizes. Pricey, but worth every penny. I ordered a second pair soon after the first.

Favorite all time shoe - The first time I ever bought a second pair of the exact shoe! The first pair lasted about 7 years, then I still loved the style and feel...bought it again. very comfortable and the patent leather is dressy enough to wear many places.

Brands I'd also recommend: sarto, pliner, birkenstock

Mephisto Helen Sandals - I have a couple pair of these sandals and they have excellent arch support, and are very comfortable. Every time I wear them I get comments on them. And I have had many people tell me they have them and love them.

Mephisto Helen - I just received my fourth pair of Mephisto Helen. I can't say enough about this shoe! I have totally flat feet, a horrible back, a knee that needs surgery and this shoe almost makes me forget all of it!!! I love the terrific arch support! I wear them almost all of the time--even in the winter--and we live in the mountains!!! Zappos has great service and an awesome selection!!

comfortable - Mephisto Helen are the most comfortable shoes, you can wear them all day. Living in Arizona, I've found them to be the best sandal for this climate. I own five pairs of them, my husband also owns four pairs himself. Please don't ever stop making them. We love them.

Brands I'd also recommend: Just the Mephisto so far.

Why not offer a wide width, Mephisto? I really wanted to love these shoes--the lavender color is gorgeous, the straps fit and they look so good. But the sole is too narrow for my toes, and I know the pinky over the edge will lead to blisters, corns and cranky were (especially at these prices). Couldn't Mephisto make these in wide?

Great Sandals!! This is my third pair. I love them. They are so comfortable. You can walk all day in them without knowing you actually have them on! They are a must have! Order a size larger then you normally wear due to the lip around the shoe.

Paradise for your feet - I have hard to fit feet. They are narrow, bony and my right ankle was seriously injured some time ago. I also walk about six miles a day in NYC and want to be sure I can walk home in an emergency, such as a blackout. Oh yeah, I love beautiful shoes and was craving gold leather sandals. These shoes are extremely comfortable and also very attractive. I don't like to wear anything else. The strap adjusts to fit a narrow instep, the thing between the toes softens up fast, as do the straps. No blisters, just bliss. Better than Birkenstock. Better than bare foot. Buy them. Well worth the money

Brands I'd also recommend: Anything with adjustable straps -- narrow feet have it rough
