I love these sandals!! They are really comfortable -- they almost feel like slippers! The strap is adjustable, which is great for my narrow feet. The footbed doesn't seem overly wide, either, which is great for me. I was a little worried about the gold color, but it's not super shiny; it's really a pretty color. I'm thinking about buying more of these in different colors. I think they'll be great for walking around in Italy next month!

I just love these shoes. I have had to break in the "between-the-toe" part of this shoe. Have received compliments each time I have worn these sandals. I have terrible foot problems and have a difficult time finding fashionable shoes that my foot can tolerate. Up to now, I've been wearing Birkenstock...these are just as well-fitting and possibly more comfortable.

My wife has worn this specific model for years and when they finally wear out she just gets another pair. Obviously loves the comfort.

Just like my old pair of Mephistos, these feel awesome! The material on top is soft and the arch support is excellent. I was so sad that they were a bit too narrow and a bit too short. I've ordered the next size up and am hoping for a perfect fit.

I love these shoes. They do run a bit small, I always wear a 9 or 8.5, but I had to return the first pair to get a size 10, which fits me great. It's also a bit narrow compared to most sandals. Still fits, but just barely. Ultimately I'm very happy with my purchase. I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars due to the size issue and narrowness of fit.

I wanted to love it after reading countless positive reviews on it. But after wearing it around the house, the leather on the big toe area irritated my skin.

I've worn Mephistos for years, and was trying to replace a worn pair. I got the nubuck thinking they would be easier to break in; however, the leather around the toe is a bit stiff. I'm sure they will eventually give, and this is still the most fashionable comfort shoe company!

Although pricey, there is no doubt that these shoes are insanely comfortable, especially for someone who had had several different foot problems. They're more comfortable and a bit less clunky than either the Birkenstock or Naot versions. I think I'll be living in these shoes over the summer!

These are the most comfortable sandals I have ever worn. It's like walking on a cloud. I normally wear an 8 1/2, but this sandal only came in full sizes; I bought an 8 and it was perfect.

These shoes look great and are super comfortable. I did have a slight breaking in period, but then I started wearing them when walking 3 miles/day. I have a widish foot but they fit perfectly. I went by the European size, 38 in the US I'm a 7.

I have a pair of Hannels I bought 3 years ago in size 38. So I ordered a 38 - but my toe was right at the edge and since there is a lip on the edge, it felt weird and didn't look right. So I am following the advice of Zappos and ordering the 39. I got the Grey Etna and what a beautiful dark pewter color. It has a beautiful texture and isn't hard like some patent finishes. So, what else is there to say about this sandal that hasn't already been said? It's a fantastic sandal!

These sandals are fabulous! I have terrible feet...arch pain, heel pain, ball of foot pain...and these sandals were absolutely the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. I wore them right out of the box for several hours while shopping...not a single pain when I got home! They do run small, though. I usually wear a size 7 in other sandals but had to get an 8 (size 38) in these. (The 8s are a little "roomy" but the 7s were just too short.) Wonderful sandals...ordering more!

I knew I wanted to buy a Mephisto Helen shoe but I didn't know what color or leather type. The site was very helpful and I bought a color That I had never seen and was very pleased. The shoes arrived in just a few days.

Saw a friend wearing these shoes and fell in love so I bought my own. The nubuck version is more comfortable than the shiny (hard) leather but I'm hoping that as time goes on the shiny leather will soften up more. All in all, I highly recommend this shoe as something that can be considered dressy but comfortable.

This new "metallic" Helen looks great and feels great! I should know, as this is my 8th pair I've purchased in about 10 years. And because of that history, I also know they are now slightly shorter. This means I had to return my size 41, which I've worn for nearly 10 years, and re-order a size 42. The arch support is also not as high. I probably wouldn't even know this if I didn't have my "old" Helens to compare them to. Still the best sandal/shoe I've ever worn for my high arches and my heels that 'burn' after a few hours on my feet. I will keep buying them, but why the changes?

Exchanged the Helen for the Helen Plus (wide) because my last two toes were touching the edge of the shoe. I don't typically buy wide shoes. The Helen Plus worked fine.
