Shoes seem a quite a bit larger than expected. And they're heavy. Nice shoe, but not for me at the price.

I tried the Mephisto brand because I always saw the shoes beautifully displayed at a retail store I used to frequent. I do not have any orthopedic issues. I just love comfortable shoes, especially when I have a lot of errands to run that require a lot of walking. I would describe Mephisto as a high end Birkenstock (due to the price point and style). Mephisto sandals are so comfortable. They feel great and they look nice, too, particularly on people who are casual dressers but still wear nice clothing. They are a mature, sophisticated shoe on even a young woman. Unlike a previous reviewer, I never noticed any problems with the smell of my shoes. Quite the opposite. Fit wise, it is my experience that they pretty much run true-to-size. At best, you may need a half-size larger. (Thankfully, Zappos has no-hastle returns!) If I had to choose Mephisto vs. Birkenstock, I would definitely choose Mephisto, but Birkenstock is also a good option, just not my preference in this instance.

There are 2 major flaws with this shoe. The "buckle" is not a buckle, the strap is a velcro close strap. At this price point I expect a real buckle. Also major deal breaker for me, on the strap of each shoe the brand "Mephisto" is printed. Looks ugly and again at this price point, I find it tacky.

This is my second pair of the Helen sandals. I love them! They are my everyday comfy sandals & the Silver Nairobi is my favorite. They are padded & super comfortable & they last & last!! Great quality. It's hard to find a good supportive sandal like this that is also good looking!! And this one is!! I get complements all the time wearing these. They've got a luminous look to them & are pretty! I normally wear an 8 in sandals but these I wear a 9 to fit properly with a little toe room. This time the inner leather around the toe area was a little rough, so they'll either wear in or I'll put some kind of tape/bandaid to soften it a little,. But they are worth it. Best shoes ever!

Yes Pricey!! Yes edgy!! Yes Comfortable! Yes waterproof!!! Yes WORTH EVERY Penny!!! I wore these boots all winter. In every imaginable weather crisis, I had my feet firmly planted in these amazing boots. Don't hesitate !! These boots are made for walkin, and that's just what they'll do!!!

Great shoe! My 5th pair, so something must be working! I have Plantar Fasciitis and flatter than flat arches, so most sandals are out. These are perfect! I even wear them in the house all winter instead of slippers, which lack support.

I REALLY wanted these sandals do work; they're just what I'm looking for: a pretty wedge with a slight platform, criss-cross straps and comfy but supportive footbed with good arch support. I was even willing to bite the bullet on the high price tag, but alas, the footbed is just a hair to narrow for my slightly wide foot. I can usually get away with wearing a medium width in most styles, so I was disappointed when these did not work. PLEASE TELL MEPHISTO TO MAKE THIS SANDAL IN A WIDE WIDTH AND THEN I'LL BUY AT LEAST TWO PAIRS (every season)! Please!

I've taken two trips in two different pairs of Mephisto Yaels - they are supremely comfortable right out of the box. I walked 5-6 hours a day in them. The toe is slightly tapered so they don't look too much like bowling shoes. I can't say enough good things about this shoe!

I have ordered several white leather Athletic shoes and returned several. Finally decided to order the Mephisto Hawai, I won't be returning this shoe. Comfortable from the time I put it on. If you try it you won't be sorry.

Same size I;ve always worn in Mephistos but too big in this one. Also the upper straps were so stiff they would cut into my foot. I'm very disappointed.

Not much support or cushioning for an expensive shoe

Cosima (white) I have been looking for a plain white leather sneaker for quite a while and here they are! No squiggles, stripes or oversized logos! I have been a Mephisto fan for a while and a Zappos fan for a lot longer. While the shoe is expensive you absolutely get what you pay for. The leather is beautiful (I always spray my shoes before the first wear) and they are comfortable out of the box. I have been wearing them since first thing this morning and there isn't an "ouch" anywhere and my feet love to complain. The shoe is rather light so it will be a good closed-toe option for warmer weather with capris, shorts, casual skirts, etc. The toe box offers wiggle room too. There is a "keeper" for the laces so the tongue won't slip to the side as you wear the shoe. If a sneaker could be elegant this would be the top candidate.

Beautiful shoes, but too wide -- C rather than B-- and though a 5 too big overall.

I really wanted to like these! Sadly- the black from the straps was wearing off on to my feet the first day, arch support wasn't nearly as good as Birkenstock or Vionic, and the thickness of the leather strap was significantly thinner than other comparable sandals. For the price I expected to like these just as much or more than Birkenstocks. And really wanted to! But sadly they will be returned. I have to add- I can't say enough good about Zappos and their mind-blowing customer service! You guys ROCK!

Most often a "40" is translated into a size 9, so that's what I ordered. But it was a whole size too long, so I have exchanged it. I gave the shoe 4 stars rather than 5 because of my personal preference for a slight heel - when I wear a flat shoe for a long time one ankle, once broken and never properly set, begins to ache. But if you can wear flats, these will be fine. I also liked the soft toe thong.

LUV these shoes! Immediately comfortable right out of the box. The buckles don't actually work - it's a velcro straps. I like being able to adjust the strap for a perfect and comfortable fit - easy on and easy off! The footbed is really comfortable and I can walk in these all day without my feet hurting. Shoe is great for "older" feet -- it's nice having the height without feeling like walking at an angle. The only thing I wish they would have done is made a more rubbery sole for slicker walking surfaces -- otherwise they are fine.

I sent these back because they were just too generic-looking. They'd be great for someone who wants a very versatile shoe. They'd be great for going to Europe and walking a lot. They're quite narrow. Tjey would go with anything.

I'm totally in love with these shoes! The grey is terrific and a nice variation for my black-based wardrobe. I get a little tired of wearing black shoes all the time. They fit amazingly well and look great. I can imagine these will be good for summer because they have those small perforations to ventilate my foot, and they'll look good with shorts. I want to use them for my trip to Peru this fall and for hiking in the Sierra. The fit and comfort is what does it! I'm a narrow and they snug up nicely.

this sandal felt a little smaller than my other 6 pairs of size 38.
