problem solved! WoW!! I knew it was what I needed the instant I tried it on. Wearing the Hurrikan is like walking on clouds. My fungus problem is solved! I no longer need to double socks or wear Cool Max socks because the shoe sucks the moisture right out of my feet. Why didn't I know about this shoe years ago? No one told me about it. Now I am telling everyone so no one will have to suffer like me -- physical therapist

Brands I'd also recommend: none other. This is the permanent one.

I'll admit, I'm a creature of habit. When I find something that works I tend to stick with it. This is the 3rd pair of Mephisto Hurrikan's I have owned. They last for years and you can mail them back to Mephisto to be resoled. When I found they were available to Zappos, well that just made it all that much easier for me to feed my habit.

Look good, feel great. I can put them on like slippers (don't have to unlace) which I like. Some might think a little "sloppy" especially if their foot tends toward the narrow like mine but that doesn't bother me because they feel so good.

Mephistos are perfect, of course. Strange thing about this, my normal size is 91/2D my old Mephisto pair was an 8, so I ordered 8 and its fine.

My Mephisto Hurrikans arrived very quickly from Zappos and fit perfectly. One of my feet is a bit bigger than the other one, so one shoe is a bit loose, but nothing worth fussing about. They have been very comfortable from the start and I'm proud to wear them.

This is the first time that I have purchased a pair of Mephistos and they lived up to their reputation. The quality and comfort are apparent immediately. I have worn the Hurrikans for about a month now and I continue to be very happy with them. As always, Zappos made it very easy. The first pair was too small. I returned them and the next pair was perfect. I do not know if the sizes run small for Mephisto but I sized up a 1/2 size and they were perfect. I will buy Mephistos again and recommend them highly.

Finest shoe I've ever owned - I recently bought my second pair of these wonderful shoes. The first pair lasted 3 years, then I sent them back to be factory rebuilt. They are still good, but I bought another pair so I can wear them every other day. Comfortable from the first wearing.

I love my Mephistos! I bought my first pair of Mephisto shoes, model Match or equivalent, while visiting in Holland twelve years ago. My "popular brand" all-purpose shoe had just separated between the heel and footbed on a walk in Haarlem. I passed a shoe store and saw this good looking shoe in the window, stopped in and tried them on. It was love at first step!! I broke the Mephistos in walking around Amsterdam, Leiden and Berlin, the other shoes having been relegated to the waste bin. Never a sore spot or rub from the day I first put them on my feet! When my Harken and later, my Timberland deck shoes became unwearable, the Hurrikan was the natural choice. I have worn the Mephisto Hurrikans on three Continents and Australia and New Zealand as well as other Mephisto models (I now own five pair including the incomparable Niels sandal). Well, my wife couldn't stand it so she bought a pair about eight years ago. Now, Imelda (just kidding, of course!) has nine pair of her own! You cannot find a better made, more comfortable shoe. We are travelling to Japan in a few weeks. My new Hurrikans and my original pair of Match will go with me! A note on sizes: These shoes are European sized and will require a bit of patience in getting the right size for your foot. Trust me: That patience will be rewarded.

My thoughts on the Mephisto Hurrkan - You'll never find a more comfortable shoe. Very long lasting, this is my third pair. Extremely pricey, but I guess you get what you pay for.

Best you can buy - Bought a second pair after wearing the first pair every day for three years. You will not find a more comfortable or better looking casual shoe on the market. At any price.

Bought these for my husband - I bought these shoes for my husband. They are the second pair of mephisto's he's had. They look nice and he says they are comfortable. Thankfully they last a long time too since they are rather expensive!

Great shoe - Im very happy with my purchase. I feel like I have shoe that will last a long time, stay comfortable, and look good. They are a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. They felt a little big at first, but are now conforming to my foot. They "squeak" a little, but that is going away as the leather gets more supple, just like a fine dress shoe...

So Comfortable! I love mocs, but they are not the easiest shoes in which to walk. Hurrikans have that Mephisto raised heel that helps propel one forward with each step. The padded tongue is quite soft and plush. One can firm up the fit so the heels do not slip and still be comfortable on top of the foot. I can see myself wearing these shoes just about everywhere. They are soft and comfortable right out of the box.

Ahhhhhhh!!!!!! I tore my Plantar Facitis and found walking and standing extremely painful. I test drove many, many shoes to no avail until I stumbled upon this shoe. The price point was a non-issue once I found I could stand and walk with these shoes. I've worn these shoes for over four years now and am about to replace them with an identical pair that looks a little less traveled. You could not find a better shoe for your feet, period!

Mephisto shoes are simply the best! I believe that Mephisto Shoes are the benchmark for quality, construction and overall comfort. The price is obviously higher but there is no other shoe manufacturer that comes close to there level of comfort and durability. The only real drawback that I can offer to a potential buyer is that the shoe widths are a little wider than most american brands, so, if you have narrow feet, you may find the Hurrikan difficult to "snug up" due to the leather lace/moc style. I currently have 3 pairs of Mephisto's (Hiker, Gifford and now the Hurrikan) and they are the best shoes I have ever owned!

Great looking, fits well, but not all that comfortable. It's a very rigid sole. Not nearly as comfortable as Ecco or Rockport. I'm kind of disappointed at that price.

The Hurrikan's are a beautifully made shoe, but the be sure to order at least one size less than your normal size and width as they are made larger than expected. I normally wear a size 10.0 medium and ended up with a 9.5. The D is also too wide but the only width available.

I always wear 10.5, medium width. But this shoe was far too long and wide. A size 10, medium was sent. This length was okay, but it is still too wide. Hence, this well-made shoe is uncomfortable.
