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.

These were very comfortable out of the box and didn't require any breaking in. Just put them on a wore them all day many days in a row - a miracle for me! This shoe is a bit narrower in the forefoot than usual for this kind of Mephisto style, but the leather is soft and stretched easily. The only reason I gave it a 4 star rating in comfort is the forefoot width. I have high arches and would have been happy with a bit more arch support but not having it hasn't presented any problem with this particular style.

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.

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!

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 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.

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.

These felt great right out of the box. Needed a walking shoe for Europe that could go from trail to restaurant. Worried that they might be too clunky (what a useless video of the shoe, where the model's jeans completely obscure them!). But they are much more streamlined than they appear in the photos, and have a high quality look to them. After much searching, I've finally found my vacation shoes!

These are very comfortable walking shoes that keep my feet from getting tired even after many hours on my feet. They are wide enough for my WW foot to be comfortable. I have four pairs of these I like them so much.

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.

EXCELLENT WALKING SHOE: Up until now I have been wearing running shoes for walking because they are cushy and come in wide widths. I finally found these comfortable well-cushioned Lasers which have a roomy, wide, high toe box. I ordered them in two sizes; those in my usual size felt tight and cramped my toes so I kept the larger pair. They're perfect and I can wear them with a thicker sock. The soft leather and sporty style complete a casual outfit and I feel great not having to wear sneakers for comfort walking.

I bought these shoes, and a pair in red as well, for a trip to France that I knew would involve a lot of walking. They have a large enough toe space not to cramp and great support. The only negative was that after much walking, the balls of my feet hurt, so they could use a little more support in that particular area. At home now, they are wonderful for everything else. The red pair get a lot of notice and compliments. I have been wearing Mephisto shoes for many years and rely on them for outstanding fit and durability. These shoes are cute too!

Stylish sneaker. I wore these shoes on the first day for about 8 hours. They really felt comfortable. No regrets in spending $200 for those stylish walking shoes.

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.

My experience with Zappos has been so consistently excellent, I return again and again. These shoes are a prime example: right size; fast service; accuracy.

I wore the shoe on Italy's cobblestoned streets and found it to be comfortable despite long periods of walking. It's a good alternative to sneakers for comfort and appearance.

I bought a 10 and zappos did not have a 10.5. I must sadly send them back, because I have a bunion on my big toe. I will wait for the 10.5. A great looking shoe and very comfortable. I will buy this brand again and again. I am really impressed.

Unfortunately for me, the top of the side of the shoe rubbed against my ankle bone. This is a problem for me time to time, but I have not have this issue with my other Mephisto shoes. Otherwise this felt like a very comfortable shoe.

I was looking for a supportive shoe that had some style. These shoes fit the bill perfectly. I have gotten many compliments on them. From the first day, the fit was perfect - no "break in" time needed! I normally wear a size 9, and ordered the 39. The size was perfect. Enough room for my toes to wiggle, and the heel fit is great. I am always happy when I order Mephistos - they do not disappoint.
