I love these and was really hoping they would fit, but they just aren't wide enough for my foot. I usually wear a 7W so these will have to be returned.

This is my favorite sandal-I have worn it for several years. I'm on my 2nd pair of black patent now. I have also purchased the silver metallic(2pair) and the gold metallic, and I love them all. I especially like the metallic and am very disappointed that they have not been available this year. I have a problem with my left foot, and this shoe remains comfortable no matter what. I LOVE THEM

I love this shoe. I found my black pair in Seattle and my bronze pair in Prescott. I wear them almost every day. Not only are they great looking they are the most comfortable shoe I own and I have a lot of shoes.

I love my Mephisto Sydels. I already have them in other colors, but couldn't find black anywhere. They are the most comfortable sandals I own. Plus, they are so cute! They are pricey, but worth it! And, Zappos got them to me the day after I ordered them, even though I live in the boonies! Wow! Thanks, Zappos!

This is my favorite shoe. I get a new pair every year, to replace last year's. Super comfortable. Easy on and easy off. If I had a dollar for every compliment that I receive on these, I could pay for another new pair.

If you are looking for a truly comfortable sandal that supports every contour of your foot and looks good at the same time, then this sandal is for you. I can wear these all day, walk for miles and still feel good. The suede lining is an extra addition to comfort and does dress the sandal up. Now for the negative: The straps are man made material. Didn't notice this until I had worn them and fallen in love with them. Disappointing for the price and the Mephisto line. I love these anyway and will keep them. Normally I wear a 38 and these are true to size.

I absolutely love these shoes. This was my sixth pair of this style. I wish Mephisto would bring back more colors. My first two pairs were beige and green. I had them for five years and wore them untill I wore a hole in the top side of sole from wearing so much. These shoes are so comfortable you can literally walk in them all day.

These are the most amazing sandals ever. I would not have made it in Las Vegas without these. I have tried many, many other supposedly comfort shoes but these make it possible for me to walk long distances. Much better than athletic shoes! Get compliments all the time too!

These shoes are worth the big price tag. Support is amazingly good. The straps are adjustable which works well for bunions and larger arthritic joints. Placement of the straps are good, too...you don't feel like you're "working" to keep them on your feet. Overall, they're worth the money & I'd definitely recommend them!

This is my favorite sandal ever! The Most comfortable Mephisto. I wish they made more with the foam sole. Perfect for arch support without Too much arch support like most of the others. Great for flat feet. And so pretty! I get compliments all the time on them. Have other Mephistos but these are perfect for my flat feet. The soles are not hard like the cork Helen.

These shoes are mostly about comfort, it is a brand I have come to rely upon. But the patent leather and rhinestones make these comfort sandals a little more fun and dressy. If you have issues with arthritis in your feet, as I do, these are always comfortable to wear.

Buying these sandals came about after a lot of research. I was considering ordering huge, expensive gel mats for my kitchen due to a severe arthritis in both back and knees. Daily life is pretty miserable and so cooking is always a trial for me with the added pain of standing during prep and so much walking at one time. Then I thought, "What about getting some shoes that give the feeling of the gel mats without the great expense and are literally portable?" That's when I discovered these sandals made by Mephisto. These sandals are among their shoes which have their special "Soft Air Technology" which relieves pressure on knees, hips, and lower back. They are ones specially made with a thick layer of natural latex foam mousse crafted to provide ultimate cushioning and shock absorption. So not only are these sandals a tremendous amount of money less than ugly gel mats, I can wear them anywhere I want! I can honestly say that these sandals are going to change the quality of my life greatly! The shock absorption is absolutely unbelievable! Order up a size...it felt funny to do that, but enough reviews said that and they were right! These sandals are a great solution for anyone who needs cushioning as they walk, especially those of us with typical aging joints!

I love Mephistos, especially the ones with adjustable straps. I have a narrow foot and I can make these fit me. And I love having diamonds on my feet!

These are the most comfy shoes I have ever owned. If I could wear them year round in the snow, I would. These are more than just shoes, but an investment...a wise investment.

First of all I want to say that Zappos is a fabulous company to deal with. I order something on Sunday and it arrives on Tuesday, with no shipping charges. But the best thing about Zappos is their president who really believes that happy employees are great employees. He does not have an office, but works alongside everyone else. They have parades all the time and so much fun, while they are working. What a concept. Treat people well, and they will be loyal and happy. A great corporate model. It's important for our economy to support such a great company. And, by the way, I love my Mephistos!

I walk all over NYC and able to wear these shoes day and night. They are so comfortable that I forget to take them off when I come home. The white does get dirty, BUT all your have to do is take a paper towel and wipe it off!

It took me quite a while to pull the trigger on buying such expensive sandals. However, I absolutely love them. They become more comfortable every time I wear them (footbed continues to mold) and quite delicate looking for comfort sandals. Definitely less German grandma than most. The lining absorbs sweat very well - never feel swampy and never slick.

Pretty and comfortable sandals - The shoes are beautiful and comfortable. I did get a blister on my toe when I first wore them, probably because the straps are narrow. I ordered a size 8 but they feel slightly smaller and narrower than other size 8 shoes.

Very cute alternative to the "comfort sandal" selection - I have really high arches and would dread summer's arrival because I could never wear cute flip flops. Thankfully, Mephisto has come to the rescue. The Sydel is really cute and gives nice arch support. My only complaint is that I sometimes trip over the front, but that might be because I'm not used to wearing them yet. Another one to check out that is even more comfortable, though in my opinion not as cute, is the Helen. In short, I highly recommend the Sydel for those with high arches...and a sense of style!
