I purchased these shoes because of the multiple adjustments to fit arthritic, swelling and shrinking feet. The adjustments are easy, so that the shoes always fit. The uppers can pass reasonably well for shoes for an office environment, and the soles are athletic-shoe style, providing stability.
On the down side - for shoes that are supposed to be Mephisto quality, the insoles were chintzy - VERY soft surface and very cushiony, what there was of them, but they are extremely thin and provide ABSOLUTELY NO arch support whatsoever. I pulled them out in short order and stuck in a pair of insoles from my Keen shoes until I can order a decent insole for the Mephisto.
The nubuck stains easily, but I expected that since they are a light beige. I don't think any other brand of light-colored nubuck shoes would do any better.
I mark this as "recommend" but solely because of the adjustability and stability. Are one of only two pairs of shoes I could find with the adjustability - and when you need it, you need it.
