These shoes are super cute and most importantly: very comfortable. I recently discovered why I have so much foot pain. The genetics of poorly designed feet for multiple forms of abuse x many years working on my feet, sometimes 16 hour doubles in hotel and restaurant, and wearing the exact opposite of the right shoes... + cramming my little feet into super high heel stilettos = at the ripe age of only 30, Bunions. Ho Dang, Bummer. Anyhow, although my feet have a hard time in any shoe the Allrounder by Mephisto is about as good as it gets for me. Before bunions, I was a true size 7 and 1/2, these days even an 8 can still cause pressure in my feet; however, 8 is usually too long on my foot and an 8 and 1/2 is completely out of the question. I was worried but still opted for the 7 and 1/2 because I had read they run a little wider and they are adjustable. The 7 and 1/2 fits perfectly. They have a great insole - they are flexible. Extremely well made and worth the money. And they are not narrow which is a deal-breaker for my feet. They fit swimmingly. Wish me luck in my on-going search for the perfect fitting boot. Thank goodness for the Mephisto Allrounder. 1st time was the charm on that one.

I am only 30, but have back and knee problems from too many hours of intensive sports, and need a show with good support and cushioning. Several years ago I found an amazing (and young looking/funky) shoe from Rockport which were the most comfortable pair of shoes ever, and on which I got many compliments. Sadly, that was the only year Rockport made non-gradma looking shoes. I have since been scouring the stores for another such find, regardless of cost, and thought that I had at last found this in the Mephisto Niro (Allrounder). At first, in the store, they did not feel nearly as good as my Rockports, but I knew of Mephisto's reputation for quality, and so decided to bring them home to see how things would go. After 2 days of wearing them at home, I couldn't understand how these could be 'high quality, supportive and cushioning', except with an insert in them, granted better cushioning in the heel. The front cushioning (as mentioned in another review) is practically non-existent, and indeed, upon removing the insole, I discovered some cardboard-like material the entire length, and not much else...

Just bought another pair of these Allrounder by Mephisto, this is the third pair I've purchased. I just love these shoes, they are really comfortable and last a long time. I have walked all over Disneyland in these shoes from early morning till midnight. They are very comfortable!

Was at the foot doctor's office and found a pair on display. Looked for navy shoes that are comfortable to wear with jeans. Not too many out there. The cost was pretty hefty but found at Zappos cheaper. Love them!

They fit me perfectly and are so comfortable, BUT for one thing (so sad), the back of the heel is high, and pushes into the back of my ankle and I just can't deal with the poking that I feel back there. I so much want to be able to keep these, because otherwise they are just super. I normally wear an 8.5 or 9, and these felt great in terms of sizing.

These Mephisto Allrounder's are the most marvelous walking shoe I have ever owned. This is now my 7th pair, in a variety of colors! We do a great deal of walking, and no other shoe can compare in comfort.

This is a great shoe. I recently had surgery on my foot, and all I can wear right now is an athletic type shoe. These are comfortable and a great change from lace-up shoes. I love Zappos! They have a great selection of shoes. That is all I have ever purchased, but I have have browsed through some of the other departments and liked what I saw. Zappos' customer service is unsurpassed! Their agents are well informed, professional, polite and very helpful. The return policy is generous and very easy to utilize. All in all, Zappos gets an A+ from me!

This is the fourth pair of these shoes that I have bought because they are the best! Not only are they unbelievably comfortable but people stop me on the street to say how cute they are and ask about them. I have only one complaint - the strap over the ankle is held on by an O-ring. After a season of tightening this strap, the O-ring tends to loosen and it becomes harder and harder to get a tight grip at the ankle. This design flaw should be looked at by the makers at Mephisto. However, I would still recommend this shoe very strongly.

I wear orthotics and I wanted a light, summer shoe that would take them. And, I wanted something "airier" than a sneaker, but still good, supportive, and tough. This shoe fit the bill. I wear them without socks and have had no issues, though I've only worn them a few times. Sizing was a bit hard for me to figure out. I usually wear a 7, but the 6.5 worked better for me in this style.

Absolutely love these shoes. I usually have a lengthy break-in period for shoes but these felt like I've worn them for years the first day I had them on. These are better than true to size as you can adjust the velcro straps, front and back, to customize the fit. Entirely satisfied with this purchase.

This is my second pair of this sneaker. Besides being extremely comfortable, it looks much more stylish with jeans than typical lace-ups. The fit is great. Above all, though, the most outstanding feature is that these shoes easily accommodate my custom orthotics. I can slip them under the removable insole and then the Niro feels especially fantastic. I also like that there's a bit of height in the heel to make me feel a little taller.

What a marvelous casual shoe! Cool and suited to so many occasions. I am thrilled with this shoe because my orthotics slip in and out as needed. Thanks to Zappos for their outstanding, speedy assistance in my purchase.

Zappos and Mephisto Allrounder...It doesn't get any better! I've been wearing Mephisto sandals for years but found their closed-toed shoes to be too narrow. The Niro is the most comfortable shoe I've found next to my New Balance sneakers, and my custom orthotics fit perfectly inside. Plus, I can't believe they also stylish. What a find! The width is a half size larger than marked which is perfect for my wide feet. I love the shoe and have it in four colors. I must mention the exceptional service I continue to receive from Zappos. No other online store can compare! Zappos.com is outstanding!

Love, love, love this shoe! Perhaps the most expensive shoe I own, but worth every penny. I can't rave enough about it. The innersole is easily removable, and my custom orthotics fit nicely. I've been suffering from plantar fasciitis, and after wearing these shoes most of the time for about a week, my feet feel better than they have in over a year! They look great too...with everything from shorts to pants, capris, and skirts.

Fabulous! The Mephisto is the most comfortable walking shoe I've had. My feet hurt all the time and it is hard to buy comfortable shoes. I'm a teacher and stand on my feet a lot. When I found the all rounder I was so surprised. My feet never hurt when I wear them. I wish it came in more colors. I'd like a navy, brown or tan. I have the gray and am going to get a black next. The orange and green don't go with my wardrobe. I also wish it came in leather instead of nubuck. I got a size larger than I wear because I need the toe room so my toes won't hurt.

Dissapointed - I received this shoe as a Christmas gift from my sister. After wearing the shoe one day, the red suede is fading onto the white part of the shoe. I have e-mailed Mephisto, to see if this is a defective shoe or if there is a product to prevent this fading. I am waiting on their reply before I make my decision to return the shoe.

Wear a 9. Ordered the 40 which is a 9 1/2 thinking I'd need the space for a sock, but it was way too baggy and long. Ordered the 39 which is perfect and doesn't crowd my toes at all at the end. Very comfortable. Like the removable insole and may add a tiny bit more arch support. Kept the navy even though it's a little baggy at the sides between your two feet (to the side of the arch). Would have kept the black as well except for the baggy area plus the navy were pretty hot on a 70 degree day. Will have to wear a sock for some ventilation. Great for winter; not so great for summer without socks. Intended to use this for walking but may need to rethink that and use something with a little more support. Good for walks around town, shopping, etc but not for 2-3 mile walks.
