When I saw the Mephisto Helens both my daughters were wearing, I had to get a pair for myself, and I am so glad I did. They are without a doubt the most comfortable sandals I've ever had.

Wear Mephisto Helen every day so I like a variety of colors. Prefer leather uppers, but I needed a pair of orange. Love the arch support for my high arch. Can add holes to the strap for my narrow feet. Wish the company would keep tangerine and green in the leather colors.

For those of us with major foot problems, Mephisto is the way to go. There is a lot of support, the foot bed is firm but giving. The toe leather is rolled so you don't have any rough surfaces touching your toe. I dinged it one star for style as I find it a little basic in design. Very comfortable sandal!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the incredible arch supports in these shoes - if only Mephisto incorporated the same diligence of creating support in their other shoes. Had purchased a pair last year (or the year before) in metallic blue and dawdled at the orange they had last year until they were no more. So when I seen this patent leather bright orange it was a hit the buy button for me. I have very problematic feet (broken foot remnants), super sensitive to sock seems, etc. These are the best summer shoe for me and I don't have to where a closed shoe to get my custom orthodics, they're already built into the shoe. Now I'm spying the wine colored ones :)

When I first put these on, I thought I would have to return them. I have a bunion and thought it was going to be a problem, but, I loved them so much I started wearing them around the house. I am not having any trouble, they have become more comfortable and I show no signs of blisters or rubbing. The toe rubbed at first but has since stopped. I love them and would recommend them.

LOVE LOVE LOVE these sandals. Bought a pair ten years ago, wore them heavily every spring summer and fall. They finally wore out, and to my delight I was able to order the exact same ones from zappos. Co.Fortaleza right out of the box.I couldn't be happier.

I bought these to replace a pair of the same design that finally started to look a bit frayed after probably 10 years of wear. Wonderful footbed. For such a simple sandal, it's amazing how often I get compliments on them.

I love the Mephisto Helen! I have a very narrow foot and I can adjust the side buckle to make the sandal fit my foot well. (I wear a 10N in most shoes - a 40 in the Mephisto Helen.) The width of the sole is narrow enough for my foot too. I can walk miles in the Helen (literally have) without slippage or feeling like my foot will come out of the sandal. I have arthritis so the cushion and arch support are perfect for keeping my hips and knees pain free. And best of all, I love all the colors offered in the Helen! There are other companies who make a "knock off", cheaper version of this sandal, but they just aren't the same as a Mephisto. Yes, these are expensive sandals, but the comfort, fit, and durability of this Mephisto sandal makes it worth it for my finicky feet.

Very comfortable shoe. I believe it runs a bit small I ordered my regular size but had to return and order next size up because my heel hungover the end. I have had 4 foot surgeries and it has been very hard to find shoes that work with my feet. It has great "Cush" and enough of a heel that my back does not hurt.

This is the single WORST purchase I've ever made on Zappos. No idea how ANYONE is able to walk in them, but they are so uncomfortable that I literally wore them once to walk around the mall, ended up in excruciating pain and can never use them again...so am now out a cool $148 bucks. Worst part is that NO WHERE in the description on Zappos does it say to order over a full size larger! I only noticed after wearing them around and being uncomfortable and then googling the shoe fit info, that you're supposed to have a certain amount of space in front of your toes, etc. A friend mentioned that inside the box, on the inner lid, there is an explanation of this - but I'd already thrown the box away (who reads the insides of boxes??). In addition to the fact that these hurt the feet, they're not very visually flattering when wearing anything other than skinny leg jeans (awful with sundresses and skirts). I'm livid, and super disappointed in Zappos, which I usually swear by, in how they did not represent the proper guidelines for fit on their site. Absolutely massive waste of money.

I love this shoe! They were recommended to me by a neighbor who is a kindergarten teacher with foot problems and she was right on the mark! I have at least eight pairs of them in different colors and I keep very old pairs around for gardening or dog walking. I just spent 10 days in Portland and Seattle and walked all around both cities several days in a row in a new pair, not even broken in yet, and they were wonderful! I normally wear an 8 or an 8.5 shoe and I wear an 8 (EU 38) in these, I do not feel that they run small. These shoes last for a long time, they are much more stylish than a Birkenstock, but have high comfort level. They can be dressed up or down and the metallic ones are particularly beautiful. I find the metallic and the waxy leather styles to be the most comfortable. I did end up returning the ones I ordered in Nubuck as the floppiness of the Nubuck leather thongs irritated my foot.

Love these shoes. They are super comfortable, fit well, and look great. The best part though is the customer service at Zappos. What an amazing business model. They just kept working with me till I found the perfect sandal. Can't recommend them highly enough. (I'm even saving the box--"Imnotabox" for my grandson to play with when he visits!

Thrilled with my new Mephisto Helen sandles. Slipped them on and was ready to go. They fit just like my first pair, purchased 3 years ago. So glad the style is still available and still fits exactly the same. Did not realize from the website that the pattern is a bit glittery, but it's fine - I was looking for something to go with light colored summer clothes.

I love these sandals, although after wearing them for a few days, they gave me blisters on the top of my foot under the cross strap. Overall they are extremely comfortable and I would recommend them despite the initial trouble.

Best supportive sandal ever made. This is my 6th pair. I love this particular color, very neutral and i like that the sole is lighter color as most of the styles have a black sole. If you have problems finding a sandal with a lot of support, I would highly recommend this style. I wear a size 11 in US women's sizes and I buy this in a 42.

These shoes fit so well and look great. I wore these shoes for several days prior to taking them on a trip and they felt fine. However, I have to admit that the leather that separates the toes does rub when walking for hours in them. I'll still wear them and like them, but not for hours of walking.
