This is my fifth pair of these sandals. I have them in different colors and a variety of leathers. I could wear them every day. They are not as big around the toe as Birkenstocks, and the overall effect is a little more refined as a result so they do not look bad with a sundered during the summer.

I typically don't like shoes that go between my toes, but these shoes are extremely comfortable and I don't even notice the between the toes style. The sole of the shoe is very similar to a Birkenstock, but extra cushiony!

Love these shoes! Once again the info and pics on Zaps were dead on! Caveat: While I think wide would have been too wide for me, I don't have a truly average foot width and so these are a little narrow -- though as sandals still very comfy. Buy one size larger as suggested!

The shoe is well made. I had to send it back due to my big toe being squeezed (I have a true "big" toe).

Great sandals, my second pair. My first ones wore out after a few years of much wear. Not the best fit for wider feet as medium width is a little narrower than average in my opinion.

The off-white sandals are actually light gray, unfortunately. I'll keep them anyway. Mephisto Helens are the most comfortable sandals I've ever had. I have 3 pairs of them. Good support, clean classic lines. There's a slight lift to the heel, which is good for me, as I get Achilles tendonitis easily. I still get it if I wear these or any sandals for too many days in a row, but these are the best sandals I've found so far. The sole is flat and stable, not too flexible; the footbed is cork, molded to provide very good arch support. I usually take a US size 10, Euro size 40, but this size 40 is almost a little short for me, while a size 41 is too big. So I get the size 40.

Before wearing Mephistos, I wore a somewhat similar sandal, different brand. I had to stop wearing the other brand as my feet, in particular my arches (and they're not high) were hurting. A friend suggested I try Mephistos, and I'm very glad I did! Terrific support and very comfy foot bed. Initially, I thought the price was a bit high(especially since I went through a pair each summer). But my feet are happy, and I can wear them all day. This summer I bought two pairs. I recently noticed that a wider version is available and thought I might try it as I usually wear a 'D' width tennis shoe. But, I don't think so as new sandals are a bit smug but do give a little as they wear. I definitely think Mephistos are worth the price!

I love how this shoe looks and the color is great. I get a lot of compliments. That being said, I have a wide foot (maybe too much yoga!) so I feel like my toes spill over the ridge a bit. I'm undecided whether to keep them for that reason. The sole itself feels pretty comfortable to walk on.

I was unable to find this product in my area. I immediately thought of Zappos. The free shipping both ways policy was the reason I chose to buy from them.

The most comfortable, stylish sandals that I've ever worn! I was able to wear them out of the box with incurring any blister, rubbing, or soreness! Even the leather between the toes did not cause a problem. I've received so many compliments, I can't count them. Although I would recommend these for a power walk or a hike, I definitely can walk/wear them for longer distances, like a tour through the farmer's market or Home Depot! Thanks Zappos for your fine offerings and as ever for your outstanding service!

I love these sandals! I purchased the 'Helen' style 3 years ago in a bright silver, and they held up so well and continued to support my feet so well, that I decided I wanted to purchase another pair. The Silver Snakeskin is fun, and a little flashy, but goes well with all of my colorful summery tops and dresses. I have very flat feet, and my heel and arches are very well supported.

At last. I have very low volume, 12aa feet. The 42 fits comfortably enough two of my toes could use a little longer base, but that is always the case. If a shoe is long enough it is inevitably too wide across the ball of the foot. They look good too. These long skinny feet seldom find attractive comfortable shoes. These are great. Thanks, Zappos.

Not very sexy, but gets the job done in style - If you are looking for a supportive, sturdy, comfortable walking sandal that can take some abuse, look no further. I have high arches and wear orthotics in the winter and these are the only sandals I've found that I can both wear to walk my dog and go to the mall and not be in pain or feel like a total fashion loser. If they feel stiff at first, hang in there, they'll soften with only a few wearings. Order your normal sandal size and you should be fine.

Very comfortable! I have narrow feet with low arches, so I am on a constant quest for comfortable shoes that fit well and are supportive without being too clunky-looking, especially since I'm on my feet all day. These fit the bill! The size 9's fit my 8 1/2 AA foot well. I highly recommend them and will try other Mephistos in the future.

I now own 27 pairs of these wonderful walking shoes. I say walking because you can walk for miles in them and your feet never get tired out. I've been wearing them for several years now, and still have never been able to wearout once single pair. I Just LOVE THEM!!!

These are the best. I will wear them all summer and the two tones (taupe/ecru) I got are just beautiful and will go with anything. I feel these sandals will do my aching feet lots of good this summer! Once again, Zappos is the best on fast shipping and excellent quality and service.
