Just purchased these a month ago in the Navy Nubuck and wore them each day of my week-long vacation in Ireland. They didn't let me down! Normally after walking on cobblestone or cement all day in any shoe, I would feel soreness on the balls of my feet, but not with these shoes. I didn't feel a thing! I felt like I could still walk, dance - you name it! WORTH the money! I kept expecting my feet to be tired and sore, but they never were. Even my New Balance sneakers or my Josef Seibel Biscay shoes do not compare to these Mephisto Laser walking shoes.

I got this shoe in red in a 10.5 so I could wear a light sock with it. I absolutely love them. They don't look bulky, as some other shoes do. I would get them in other colors as well, but it seems the 10.5 size is gone. So glad I got the one pair when I did!

Just as comfortable as it looks! Wore right out of the box without any 'break in' period. Great looking walking shoe.

I was disappointed that these didn't fit. I had my foot sized (at Nordstrom) before I ordered these. I ordered an 11 and they were to small. I think they run small, at least for me. I was disappointed as I was looking forward to wearing these.

These walking shoes are the most comfortable I have worn, including two previous pairs of Mephisto. I have a problem on one foot which affects my first two toes, causes swelling in that area and sensitivity to pressure. In these shoes, I am totally pain free. They are absolutely true to size, not clunky at all, and highly recommended!

Brands I'd also recommend: None compare.

A beautiful walking shoe. Mephisto is a great brand, but the shoe is definitely not a medium width. The last is narrow at the metatarsal arch, compared to other brands.

Brands I'd also recommend: New Balance is not nearly as attractive, but offers great support for walking.

They fit my feet - not always easy to do. They have a removable insole so I can replace it with my own prescription one. They have a good cushioned, but firm sole. I can walk a long time in these shoes. Lots of athletic shoes pretty well fit the above description, but these shoes look good enough to everywhere. That's really important when I'm traveling.

I bought this shoe for a trip to France. I knew we would be doing a lot of walking. When I first tried it on, I was hesitant. I kept walking around the house trying to determine if this shoe is going to take me for long, hard walks in France or anywhere else. I have some heal problems. achy knees, some hip and back problems. I'll have to say this shoe did great. My feet never hurt, and I had no problems with knees, back, etc. Not the most attractive shoe in the world but discreet enough not to be noticed. I also wore to dinner some nights with black pants. I feel I will get lots of use out of this shoe this fall and winter. I'm pleased with the shoe and hope the shoes will last for a long time because they are expensive.

Super comfortable. Pricey, but that's the norm for Mephisto. I haven't yet regretted paying that price or their product. I have trouble feet and I need to take care of them. I find that I need 10 1/2 when it's a closed in shoe, whereas I can wear 10 in a sandal. This shoe is so easy to tie, because of the metal rings where the laces feed through. Especially nice when you go through the airport.

With the most difficult feet to fit I find the Laser Mephisto very comfortable. Roomy enough for my hammered toes and bunions. I will be looking for other styles.

I just bought the Mephisto Laser - I'm using it as a walking and bike riding shoe. It is exceptionally comfortable and stylish. Sure beats gaudy shoes with lots of flashy brand names emblazoned all over them. Who wants their feet to 'stand out.' Nice to have conservative colors that blend in with slacks or sweat pants. Pure comfort!

Brands I'd also recommend: Michael Kors makes great handbags

I have bought Mephisto shoes for a very long time and have never been disappointed. They are by far the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. This pair was no different. From the moment I put them on, they felt like a good fitting glove - and that's why I pay the extra price. I have wide feet and these accommodate them nicely. I have Achilles heel tendonitis and the shoe has plenty of support to help me on those days when I'm very active. I was surprised the shoe ran small and I had to send it back for a larger size - first time ever with a Mephisto. However, with Zappos' excellent service, I had the right size the following day. I never thought I would buy shoes online, but Zappos has happily made the process so easy that I keep coming back to buy from them.

The shoe is wonderfully comfortable and excellent for walking but doesn't look clunky and sloppy like an athletic shoe would look.

The first time you put them on, it's like you've worn them for years--so comfortable. Not clunky, not heavy. The black buck is really good looking. I love the embossed wing tip. I have Mephisto leather sandals and when i bought those, they felt the same way--put them on and they immediately feel as if you've worn them for a long time. When you wear Mephistos, you have wonderfully designed and made shoes. Expensive, but so worth it.

I fractured my ankle and after many weeks in a cast and walking shoe, I started wearing these shoes. Plenty of support, no. Breaking in and extremely comfortable. My doctor approved and complimented me on how nice a supportive shoe it was.

This is an excellent shoe, and looks less bulky that my size (11) generally does. But that may be the source of the flaw. Although the length of the source is close to size, the width is off by 3/4 inch at least, so that what initiallly feels like great support turns out to be very constricting after an hour of indoor wear. And I do not think I have wide feet!

Good walking shoes. I have a problem with the shoe being uncomfortable because I have a sensitive spot on top of my big toe where a bone is beginning to protrude. There's a seem on the shoe there that makes it uncomfortable. Otherwise, I would recommend this shoe if you're looking for something to wear with pants for extensive walking.

I bought these hoping for shoes to wear around every day and walk in. The style is nice, but they were not as cushy in the heel and did not have as much arch support as I was hoping for, so I will be returning them. They are nice, but I do not think that they are comfortable enough to justify the price. I bought according to the European size 38 - but they ran a bit large.

These shoes were a splurge for me, but I'm extremely pleased with the results. I had knee replacement surgery last year and needed an everyday flexible-sole shoe that looked "dressier" than running shoes. A friend has had a pair for years, so I thought I'd give them a try. I have very flat feet, and I replace the insole with my custom orthotic. These fit my narrow heel fine. They're good walking shoes when I want to wear something other than my sneakers. I might even splurge again on the navy with white laces.

Due to feet with bunions and a hammertoe, finding comfortable shoes is difficult. These are a Godsend-very comfy, fit perfectly and are certainly not high style, but kind of cute.

Mephisto oxfords are my daily winter shoes, when made in Portugal or France. This shoe came from elsewhere, longer in length + lacking in arch support. Felt flatter, like sandals. Have returned them for a last pair of Mephisto store pair that, alas, is being discontinued.

This shoe is great for winter wear. Keeps my feet dry and warm. Quality is amazing. I have had these shoes for couple months now and they feel great and look great. Just a great shoe to have to wear with anything and expect your feet to stay dry.
