Awesome shoe with fantastic arch support. My feet feel much better and I have only been wearing them for 3 weeks! Well worth the price.

Love this shoe!! I first stumbled upon the Mephisto brand when seeking a sandal that was not manufactured in China. Never having heard of this brand I was a little wary at first but, as the footbed is similar to a Birk, I thought I'd give them a try. Glad I did! Well made, comfortable and worth the money. Two thumbs up!

My favorite summer shoe - After wearing this shoe virtually every day last summer, I decided to get it in a second color. I have a narrow foot with a high arch and these Mephisto's are one of the only styles that fits me well.

Favorite sandals - I love this shoe--this is my second pair of black ones. It offers me the needed support as I stand on my feet to teach. While it is expensive, my feet are worth it.

Very beautiful sandal - I bought the orange struzzo and it is very sharp. Not as comfortable as the softer leathers, but they will soften with time and wear. The fit is as noted; you need a size larger than you would normally wear. I will probably buy another in a softer leather.

This sandal is wonderful - I'm on my second pair. My first pair lasted for several years, even with lots of wear at a job where I was on my feet for several hours a day. I've sold shoes (including this brand) for five years, and I do not think they run small. I think they run a little long, if anything. They're just not a very wide sandal, and there is a ridge along the edges of the footbed. So, if you have been trying to squeeze into a sandal size that is really too small for you, these may not work or you may have to go a size up. I'm a true 7.5, and the 37 fits perfectly in these, but my feet are on the narrow side.

I LOVE MEPHISTOS. I used to be a diehard Birkenstock fan, and a lady at a locally owned store convinced me to try the Mephistos. I have loved them (and worn them most days) ever since. Very little break-in time. I bought my second pair from Zappos. Longer sole life than Birkenstocks, and I am a heel-dragger! Mephistos mold to your feet over time and feel just as awesome when they are a few years old as they did right out of the box.

\r\nSince I bought my first pair about 8 years ago, these are the only shoes I wear for six month of the year. They look beautiful and are super comfortable - and they are very durable. I got my first pair for half price, otherwise I don\'t know if I would have tried them. But once I did I was hooked. These are one of the few things in my life that I don\'t mind paying full price for. They are absolutely worth it. \r\n\r\nI would be careful of the suggestion to order a size larger than your normal shoe size. Last year was the first time I had ordered them on line and I could not remember what size I had worn in the past - I usually get them at a shoe store where I try them on, and the size had had worn off of my most recent pair. I ordered a size larger and spent a wretched couple of months last summer feeling like I just couldn't break the new pair in. It dawned on me slowly that I might have ordered the wrong size. I just ordered my usual shoe size, and to my delight they fit perfectly - no breaking in required. In the meantime I have a barely worn pair a size too big - a very expensive mistake! I guess the lesson is that they should feel exactly right, right out of the box. If not, send them back and try a different size. Zappos generously pays postage both ways, and although their website says delivery will take several days, I have never had it take more than 2.

I have these slide sandals in black patent and they truly are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. I usually take size 7, but was told to buy size 8 and the 8 fits very, very well. The soles mold to your feet after a few weeks of wearing. I truly cannot say enough about this particular Mephisto. The price is well worth paying, for the comfort you will receive from these shoes. I am now going to buy the red patent shoes and may buy a pair in brown also. These were the first Mephisto shoes I ever bought and I love them. For a comfortable and light weight slide, this is the one to purchase.

This shoe is so cute and so comfortable. I ordered it in the yellow and decided to order the orange, too. I’ve only worn them around the house so far as we are still dealing with the flood. I know some have suggested ordering them a size larger, but I ordered the size I normally wear and they fit perfectly. Zappos is the greatest.

The best sandals ever and even better service from Zappos! I ordered my sandals yesterday evening and they are already here when I am done with my breakfast! This is my third pair of Helen, this time in gold etna. They are not too bright and shiny as I was afraid they might be but very pleasant shade between gold and bronze. They feel too tight at first (my feet are a little swollen today) but are exactly the same size as my other pairs so I hope they'll break in a bit. I am ordering next size up (37) to try just to make sure I get the right size. With easy no-hassle return process this is probably the best shopping experience I had online.

Most comfortable sandal in the world - I'm really big on having comfort and style combined and this sandal is it for me! I own about 8 pair in different colors and wear them for work and around the house. It gives my high arch more support than any other sandal I've ever owned and I can walk all day in them and feel great...even taking trips where I walk a lot like Vegas. The black ones are my staples, but I love the gold and brighter colors for social occasions. White ones are great with black pants. For the ones that have stiffer leather than others, I break them in by wearing them around the house a couple of hours a day. No problems after that. I really love that they mold completely to your foot shape and always feel like they were made just for you. They cost a lot but they are totally worth every penny.

Mephisto Helen - This is a great shoe. I had my first pair resoled twice, only giving up when the strap broke after several years of wear. Also thrilled to find the blue color at Zappos.

You cannot go wrong with Zappos! I have ordered (7) pair of shoes different brands, different styles and have never been disappointed. Mephisto's Helen are stylish, comfortable, and great. It was recommended I buy a full size larger than I wear, which was just perfect. All my shoes from Zappos are top quality. I had the opportunity to visit the Corp office while in Vegas. First-Class operation for sure. You will always get my business for sure. Go Zappos.

Try this if you want a cool look, great comfort, and support - For dog walking and climbing the dirt hills of Sayulita, also looking all dressed for evening, this is the best sandal. Most others are too frail or too stout, this is perfect. I wait to get other colors. I started with orange because it goes with nothing, therefore everything. Surprising support for a sandal.

Best sandals I have owned - These are the best sandals I have owned and feel wonderful on my feet. We used to live in the midwest so only wore sandals a few months. After moving to the southwest I noticed my feet getting sore from my sandals b/c that is all I wear. These have wonderful arch support, mold to your feet, let your feet breath and are just plain comfy. I would love more colors! Buy up one size. I am a 9 but wear a 10 in these.

Walking on a Cloud - My feet have been given a little slice of heaven. I have been wearing them around the house because they are so comfortable. I will be going to Disney in March and look forward to wearing them while touring the parks. I know my feet are going to be happy, happy! I usually wear a 10 so I ordered a 40...to small! So I called Zappos and easy as pie it was to reorder a 41 and I returned the other pair for free in the mail the next morning. When I arrived home from work that same day there was a Zappos package with my Mephisto Helen's. Amazing Customer Service.

Everyday comfort - I have several pair of Mephistos Helen. They are my favorite everyday casual shoe. If my feet are hurting from a long day in heels I put these on when I get home and my feet instantly feel renewed. Luckily I live in the South and I can wear these year round.

Mephisto Helen sandal - I love this sandal. I got a pair at a department store about four years ago and wear them all the time. They are just starting to wear out. Saw them on Zappos and decided to get a pair for next summer. Total comfort and better price.

Had to break this pair in... This is the third pair of "Helen" sandals that I have owned, and it's the first time I've had to break them in. The leather between the toes was so stiff that I thought my bones would bruise. I finally wet the leather thoroughly there, and that pretty much took care of it. And once that was accomplished, I got to enjoy the best arch support of any pair of shoes I have ever owned. I hope they make this style forever!
