Gorgeous and massively comfortable however the red dye came off on my feet whenever I wore them! So sad to have to send them back. Hope they correct the problem because they are super otherwise!

What a disappointment, though I can't say it was unexpected -- just about every manufacturer is cheapening its products to increase profits. In comparing earlier versions of Mephisto sandals to this current model, I noted less cork, padding, and arch support, and likely fewer/thinner inner layers. My older Heidi/Hana sandals still cushion and cradle my feet, where as these felt flat and hard -- like walking on cheap composite board. The diagonal strap fits much better in this model compared to the looser strap on the original Helen. Sigh. There are few sandals on the market that not only support but also look contemporary. No wonder these still sell in their sub par state.

Cute design and color but I was disappointed with this shoe. I've worn Mephisto sandals for many years and have always found their leather to be soft and comfortable right out of the box. These were very stiff leather and my feet said "Send them back" right away. For the price, I can not risk a break-in period that never ends.

I purchased the Mephisto Helen Plus in a size 9 wide. The width of the shoe it self was a good fit. The opening for the big toe felt snug when I tried them on. I thought that with a little wear they would stretch a little. I wore them for about 1 hour on vacation. The leather around the big toes cut my skin. I would not recommend this shoe to anyone needing a wide width. The company should adjust the toe opening and the leather softness so it doesn't do damage to the person's feet. If you need a wide width, do not order these shoes.

These are my third pair of Mephisto Helen but my first pair of Mephisto Helen Twist. Each of my older ones have lasted me for seven years - what a bargain! I was slightly apprehensive about these after seeing some of the recent reviews here, but my fears were unfounded. Yes, they did feel very snug when I first put them on, but of course my older ones had stretched a bit. After two days of wearing them, they're not causing any pain or blisters and no long feel quite so snug - although they're still a very good fit. And then I stood up. Wow - felt like the most comfortable bedroom shoes ever on my feet! I didn't find any lack of arch support or cheapness in the materials. I hope Zappos and Mephisto will alert their customers should Mephisto ever decide to stop making these. I'd start to cry and then buy up as many of these wonderful sandals as I could afford!
