Extremely comfortable sandal! I debated between this one and the Birkenstock, and decided on the Helen -Mephisto is more narrow and less klunky looking. And the footbed is much more comfortable! I ordered both the size 7 and 8 and decided to keep the 7 as the 8 was just a bit big overall. I usually wear a 7.5 but unlike the other reviews that suggest sizing up if you are a half size, I feel like the half size down was best for me. I love the off white! I plan to order the black pair very soon!

I am very disappointed. I tried wearing these and something just did not feel the same as my Mephisto shoes in the past. Well, it seems these are no longer made in France. They are made in Portugal and they are definitely inferior and not comfortable at all. Back to the drawing board to find a comfortable sandal for the summer that I can actually walk in.

Will let water in. NO, not a major rain, a drizzle and some little puddle on the street is enough to get your shoes soaking wet inside.

Oh my gosh! These are my first pair of Mephisto shoes and definitely will not be the last! I was torn between these and Berks. I am so glad I chose these. A tad dressier. To me more comfortable and the arch is perfect. I have always had issues with my feet smelling with summer sandals. No smelling here! I think it's because of the holes I. The heal. It allows it to breathe. I wear an 8.5 shoe. I ordered the 9 and they fit perfectly. I wear these every single day!

I have had a pair of Mephisto Helen's for about 10 years and have loved them way past their predicted life. I wore them daily in Europe and they have been my standard footwear during summers. This pair is significantly narrower than my original pair. So disappointing! I do see that Mephisto makes a Helen Plus which is wider - I will try that model.

I have been a fan of Mephisto for years.The Helen sandal has that wonderful cork bed that molds to your foot while its underlying shape provides support. My only concern is with my new pair I have the strap cinched down to the smallest size and these are brand new. I did not have to do this on previous pairs until the sandal loosened with wear.

Overall a cute comfortable shoe. This is the first pair of Mephisto shoes that I have purchased, but I know people who absolutely love them. The biggest surprise to me was that the buckle strap has a velcro closure. The velcro holds well, but was still a surprise. I was hoping it would be a pair of shoes that I could wear all day without "feeling" the shoe, but that was not the case for me.

Beautiful everyday sandal comfortable enough to walk and stand in. I wear them to work where I stand for 9 hours without any discomfort. This is my second pair!

This was an excellent shoe for my trip to Italy. I deal with plantars fasciitis and need excellent arch support. I am an 8.5 and so I struggle with European sizing sometimes in wondering whether to order up. I ordered the 39 and the instep fit so perfectly that I went with it. I don't have a lot of extra length, but my heel is comfortably placed. While super supportive, they were dressy enough for dinner.

These shoes are extremely comfortable and I am in love with them! The footbed is soft with a cushion like feel. I don't feel like I'm wearing wedges when I have these on even though I am. I have the white which is very pretty but is not a true white and that is okay with me. There is a shimmer of gold metallic mixed in with the white which makes the color look darker. I usually wear a 36 in Birkenstocks but I wear a 37 in Mephistos.

Absolutely the most comfortable street shoe I have ever owned in my 66 years. I have 2 pair in continuous use for 5 years. Leather inside and out, breathable. Unlike synthetics, these shoes smell only like leather. On a visit to France, I tried 5 other Mephisto models: Match is the best! My only complaint: There is no reason for such a great shoe to sport a logo.

Tried these because my Harriet shoe is gettng too old. So disappointed because the big square crystals are so rigid the toe ring is uncomfortable. Please bring back the Harriet, with or without the bling, they are so comfortable. Tried the helen style, the ankle strap does not my foot in the right place.

This is my first time writing a review despite the fact I shop on Zappos waaaaay too much. I just received these shoes in the mail so this is not an experienced review. However, it was love at first try. Definitely found my SOLEmate. Super soft and cushioned support; like walking on clouds... Not too granny-looking (though not super fashionable). Not cheap at all. Will write back after I have true experience.

Beautiful boots. I got a half size larger in order to wear socks with them. Very stylish and versatile. The inner soles can be removed to create more room around the toes. The boots are very comfortable.

It was okay - I was excited that my orthotics would fit, but they were just floppy.

These are the most comfortable sandals I've ever owned. I would never consider a sandal when walking long distances or for travel, but these have proved me wrong. Didn't take any time to break in and they go with all kinds of summer clothing including shorts, skirts/dresses, capris and jeans. The black seems to be a little more versatile. Love them and want to buy another color!

I am so glad I ordered the Mephisto Harmony. I was looking for "comfort" sandals as I have RA--but still wanted something that didn't look like an orhtopedic show. I tried Birkenstocks, but alas they are not for my wide, flat foot since my foot doesn't line up with the ridges on the footbed. I read good things about Mephisto--they fit my foot wonderfully and are soft and pillowy! I've walked a couple of miles in them and my feet/knees were fine. I got the old pink verdigris which is silver with only a hint of pink. They look great with shorts and joggers. As always, Zappos has the best customer service with quick shipping and easy returns.

I'd given up thong sandals because arthritis made my feet unsteady in them. However, I recently dislocated my baby toe and couldn't stand to have anything touch it, so I shopped Zappos for a sturdy thong and found these Helens in a nice subtle red color. Skeptical about them running a size small, I ordered my regular size and the next size up. The bigger ones were perfect, and they were comfortable right away except for a slight irritation where the thong rubbed. I was able to take visiting friends sightseeing in them and managed to walk comfortably even with the bum toe. Love these sandals! They cost more than I would normally spend, but I've learned they're worth it!

Super cute shoe, but I had to return them because my toes hung over the edge. I wear a 12, but my 2nd, 3rd and 4th toe are quite long. Because of the shoe's design, the 12 was still too small.

very pretty sandals, but tend to be loose on my feet, leading me to trip over things.

These are extremely comfortable! I have severe plantar fascia pain but these are one of the few sandals that I can tolerate wearing. If you have no feet issues you will absolutely love them. They are light weight, the footbed is nice and soft, and well made.
