I'm a New Yorker, which means I walk everywhere. I'm always looking for shoes that I can walk long distances in comfortably, yet are not so "sneakerish" that I can't wear them with business attire (primarily slacks and blazers or pants suits and no, I'm not Hillary!). Mephisto Lasers are perfect for this purpose. I can walk long distances in them (the last time I wore them I walked approximately 3 miles) and they looked so good with my blazer and slacks that someone asked where she could buy these "magic" shoes you can walk long distances in and not be embarrassed when someone sees your feet. I was very happy to send her the url for Mephisto Lasers at Online Shoes and hope she has followed up and become a customer!
I have purchased two pair of this shoe--each for a different trip to Europe. In both cases, the shoe was perfect for the extensive walking on hard cobblestone roads that I anticipated. I wear substantial custom orthotics, and the shoe accommodates them perfectly. And they are stylish;My teenage daughters approved!
I have been wearing Mephisto Helen for years and years. It is a great sandal with fabulous arch support. Since I have a small bone structure and need the arch in the right spot, I go down one size from a 7 to a 6, and the shoe is perfect. The black patent has been a classic for me. I also got a funky irridescent silver pattern for fun. I wear them all spring and summer and in my house with socks when it is cold outside. They last a long time, but you have to seal the cork with a cork sealant and waterproof them to get them to last. Worth every penny if you have weak arches and ankles.
I was searching for a pair of stylish, comfortable boots to wear in the cold days of winter. Once again , Mephisto to the rescue. These are very comfortable, warm and good looking. The leather is very soft. I look forward to wearing these boots for many years to come.
