I'm a nurse and got these to wear at work where I'm on my feet a lot! These are great! I have plantar fasciitis and my expensive custom orthotics don't work in these shoes. I actually added top of the line orthotics from Walking Co. on top of the shoe liners in these shoes for a great combo. I have a pair of Mephisto Rush that I usually wear at work (with custom orthotics) but needed a back up pair of shoes. I can wear the Rush for days on end without any issues at all. Next to the Rush (much more expensive) the Laser Perfore is the best! I have a narrow foot and these work for me, especially with the orthotics. Don't know how this would work for people with wide feet - may be not wide enough.

This shoe is wide and big. Even with the laces at their tightest, the foot moves around inside the shoe. It breaks at the seam separating the toe and the rest of the foot, and the shoe rubs painfully against the base of the toenail. Although the insole says "Rush", there is no relation to the really supportive and comfortable Rush walking shoe. The outer sole is also very thin in comparison to Rush. I had high hopes for this. I thought Mephisto had finally come to the realization that walking shoes shouldn't have pointed toes.

These are super comfortable shoes. I took a two week trip and walked all day, every day in these shoes. They could not have been better.

I wore these shoes tromping all over Italy for two weeks. Besides the fact that they were my most comfortable footwear and looking reasonably stylish, what really surprised me was that they did not get covered with dirt and marks. They stayed pretty darn clean, even after tromping all through the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, and the streets of Pompeii. I bet we walked 50 miles, yet these shoes still looked nice and clean. That's unusual for such a light-colored shoe. They look fairly slender on your foot.

Have always liked Mephisto shoes, but these did not have the ankle pronation support that I need. I liked the light weight and soft leather shoe, but have to send them back. Not quite the shoe for the enormous price.

Finally, after trying out a total of five pairs of shoes, I've found a pair that will work while I'm rehabilitating a bone ub nt left foot that is healing from a break. These shoes feel fantastic and seem to be passing the "walk" test. I tried another pair of Mephistos that looked very similar to me and they didn't fit at all. This is a splurge for me in terms of price, but I think it will be well worth having an excellent shoe, especially during this time of healing and even after I go back to my regular shoes. It pays to try shoes on and I appreciate that Zappos makes this process doable.

Brands I'd also recommend: Clarks, Merrells, Dansko, the Earth line.

I love these shoes. The red is my second pair. They give support and cushioning while giving me the look that I want. I wear these with my rolled up jeans, shorts, skirts and capris. They are worth every penny!

I bought these and a pair of Ecco shoes (Ecco Sport Biom Ultra Quest Plus) for a trip to Florence to visit my daughter who is studying abroad and was surely going to walk me to death and I didn't want to wear heavy sneakers. After day one of insane walking, the Eccos had rubbed the side of my foot raw. I had planned on them being my main pair and the Mephisto for back up - as they seemed to have less support. As it was I never went back to the Eccos. I wore these Mephistos all over Florence, a ton of walking, stair climbing, chasing after a 20 year old with boundless energy. I only changed shoes for a few dinners out where they were too casual. So that was 8 days, walking almost non-stop and running through train stations (okay, walking very very fast) and airports. I could not recommend these shoes any more highly. I came home with slightly sore feet, but no shock there for the huge amount of unaccustomed walking. But no blisters, no flair up of Plantar Fasciitis, no sore arches. Awesome little pair of shoes. Will be getting another pair in a different style if possible for summer. (originally ordered a 9, as I wear 9-9.5 had to go up to 10). I note "moderate" arch support below-just because if I was currently having arch problems I'm not sure it'd be quite enough. But I'm prone to plantar fasciitis and these did not trigger any problems, despite all the walking.

I have feet that are on the narrow side and Mephisto is a brand that I have bought in the past that runs a little narrow. I think these shoes are great looking for walking on a future trip to Europe. I like to look a little dressed up but have sturdy shoes for cobblestones. These will look good with skirts and casual dresses. I wish they had left the fake snake skin trim off, but otherwise well worth the price.

These are marvelous shoes. I have difficult feet to fit because of arthritis and Achilles tendon problems, and these shoes fit the bill right out of the box. They gave me perfect arch support, and the backs of the heel are low enough so as not to interfere in any way with my Achilles tendon. They have enough padding on the soles so you do not feel little stones or the ground underfoot. I will order another pair soon!

Love these shoes. This is my second pair. They are completely comfortable from the first time you put them on. I wear size 9 medium and ordered size 39. They fit perfectly. I cannot say enough good things about this shoe!

Great casual shoe. I wear this almost daily with my custom orthotic inserts. I like that this shoe is cute without looking like many of the clunky shoes made for people with feet issues.

This is the best fitting and looking shoe I've owned for many years. The leather is beautiful, the fit is perfect and more feminine than most walking shoes.

I bought one pair and then another pair of these shoes to replace walking around in white tennis shoes when I travel -- you know what they say, "You can always spot the Americans because they travel in white tennis shoes and carry around a bottle of water!" These are very comfortable walking shoes that easily replace tennis shoes for a much more sophisticated look.

I'm still on the fence about these. They're very cute, so looks are not the problem and looks are probably why I haven't returned them. But this style runs strangely long and narrow - a salesman at an orthopedic/comfort shoe store even confirmed this to me. As a result, I'm truly an 8-1/4 so 8.5 is usually what I order, but these have an odd amount of extra room in the toe. Yet I tried the 8 and my longest toe was bumping up against the front edge when I walked around. The extra length in the front is only a problem because the toe box of the shoe flexes a bit forward of where my actual ball-of-foot and toes flex, making it slightly uncomfortable. I have shoved ballerina lambswool into the toes to keep my feet from sliding forward. A strange necessity, but it seems to work. Bottom line, the shoes are medium-narrow, and ordering up a half size to compensate for narrowness may not work as well as it does with other shoes.
