Fabulous shoe! This is a wonderful shoe. The fit is true to size, and the quality of the workmanship is superb. Very comfortable with a molded foot bed. I give this a rating of 10 out of 10!

I have 2 pair of Mephistos and like the support. This shoe has a suede leather foot liner and after a couple of weeks wear my foot began sliding and calluses developed. I am totally sold on Zappos. It is the only shoe store I use anymore. I use Zappos for my grands as well. They can get on line pick the shoes they want and "Walla" they usually arrive the next day. What a great way to gift.

Elegant yet practical "flip flop" These are shoes you can wear all day, and they are very flattering. They will be one of only 3 pairs of shoes that I will be taking to Hawaii. I usually wear a 39 in European sizes, which accommodate an 8 to 8 1/2, but the Mephisto 39 is more like a size 9, so I exchanged it for a 38.I had the 38 at my doorstep immediately after having dropped off the 39 for a return! And the 38 fits perfectly, considering that I am a true 8 1/2. Zappos service is unbeatable. The service personnel are always friendly and accommodating. And I also want to say that I love the enlarged images of the shoes and that you can look at them from all angles, that is a big plus and it really helps the decision process. I think shopping with Zappos also keeps impulse buying at bay, for me anyway, because I spend a lot of time perusing the shoes and reading the reviews which help me to make thought-out choices. Thank you Zappos, Aloooooooooha!!!

Comfortable and cute - Good arch support and comfortable. Having plantar fasciitis, it’s hard to find cute shoes that give good support but these do!

The most comfortable sandal ever! These are so comfortable!!! The footbed is molded to your foot. Have had other Mephisto sandals before, they are worth the price, but these are the best. Also, Zappos service was fabulous! I’m going to get all my shoes from Zappos now!

Great-looking but uncomfortable - I got these sandals for a Hawaii trip, they have a great "aloha" look. The footbeds are very comfortable, however, being made of cork, they are rather inflexible. The leather on the uppers is very stiff and cut into my feet. I wore them once on my trip and wore band-aids on my feet for the next week.

Mephisto Violette in Black - This Mephisto offers excellent arch support and is a great shoe for traveling. They can be worn with jeans, skirts, dresses, etc. so this sandal will eliminate the need to travel with multiple shoes. The one complaint that I have is the black bands left on my feet each time I wear them. I don't know if the other colors have this same porblem. I am hoping this will go away with time.

will never wear these shoes again-wasted $$$ I was so excited about these shoes. Went to NYC and wore them the first night and got blisters on my feet and ruined my whole trip. I had worn the shoes a couple of times before but they stretched out so bad. I can't even wear them again. I love the Mephisto Helen. When my blisters on the top of my feet healed (liquid bandaid), I was able to wear the Helens on my last day in NY.

Mephisto needs to make these sandals in half sizes, I will be returning the sandal as this size is too big and the next size down which I tried at Nordstrom is too small.

STYLISH and COMFORTABLE SHOE - I bought this pair in green, because I have this pair in beige. I have plantar facitis and these are very comfortable. In fact, I wear them every day. They have great arch support and look cute as well! I give them 5 *'s!!!

Violette runs very large!! This is my fourth pair of Mephisto sandals and the first time I am disappointed. They run very large and wider than my other Mephistos. I do love the look of the Violette, though! Also, there was a flaw on the leather where they glued on the flower decoration which causes a blister on the top of my foot.

Very Cute! I bought these with a couple other pairs. These are very cute. However, I am a medium-to-narrow foot & these are a bit loose on me. I kept them, though, as I wear them casually anyway.

Sandal du jour - but I hope they make it forever! Very attractive, and the footbed is very supportive - comfortable for standing long periods of time! For me, it is the perfect solution to dealing with plantar faciitis and my desire for feminine summer sandals. I am used to flat shoes whose soles flex, so this type of shoe felt clunky to me. For now I cannot walk at lightening speed, or great long distances in these shoes, but otherwise, no break-in time was required. I found that they were somewhat narrower than the Helen, but more comfortable. I liked them enough to buy more ... in several colors. Who knows ... I may never go back. And just as important, buying from Zappos.com has been a first class experience!!!

Cute... After looking at all the Mephisto shoes I settled on this one because it was the cutest of the lot imho. It did rub a slight blister on the top of my left foot but after that it broke in quickly with no more problems. I love the arch support as I have very high, although collapsing, arches and the support is a God send. I normally wear an 11.5 but I ordered the 12 and it's good that I did because they seem to run a bit small. I'll definitely order more Mephisto brand shoes.

Cute and comfortable. First, let me say that I never purchase shoes from any place but Zappos; their service is terrific and the selection incredible. Second, I just got these Mephisto sandals in fuschia and they fit so perfectly,were very attractive, and so incredibly comfortable that I am placing another order for the black sandals. You will love this sandal; it is everything a rather expensive sandal should be and more.

Too Small - I love the style but the sizing is very deceptive. I have returned them twice and finally gave up. They are very small about a full size and a half smaller than average. I read the other reviews but they didn't help with th decision.

Super, as always! If you've never worn Mephisto, you are in for a treat. I prefer their shoes over Birkenstock's, when I wear this type of shoe because they are narrower and more sleek-looking. I have a medium width foot, so my preference is not because I have narrow feet, but because Mephisto shoes are easier for me to walk in: their soles aren't as wide as those of Birkenstock's. And this shoe in particular has a lot of style! However, be sure to order one size up: I normally wear a US size 8 and I needed to get a size 39 in this style.

I Love Them! This is my second pair of Violettes, and I love them. I have them in black and in magenta and I wear them all of the time. I've not been able to wear Mephistos before, and I think it's because I was trying to wear a size too big in them. These are great!

Mephisto Violette - This is a very cute shoe, as well as a great walking shoe! I usually wear a 39 in a Mephisto shoe, but, in this shoe I needed a 38 and that was a perfect fit. I purchased the bright green, and it is vibrant. Violette is rather pricey, but, it is worth it to have fit and comfort that will last.

Feminine Comfort - If you're like me, and you want comfort with feminine style, these are the perfect combination. For me, thong sandals can mean blisters between the toes, but not with these. The leather thong is soft. Here style and "flirty feminine fun" meet casual comfort to create a great all around sandal for the beach, or park or anywhere. I purchased the tangerine color which looks fabulous with or without a tan.
