Review: Mephisto Sandals-Comfort Meets Style


Hello Ladies,

First, by the time you are seeing me below I have walked about ASheville in all it’s creative, artsy glory and my makeup has somehow eluded my face. Nevertheless, this look seemed fitting in this mountain air town with a more natural vibe. This is a pretty casual look for me, but thought it fitting with the town we are in.

There are alot of dreadlocks, no-makeup, slouchy jean and hippie wearin styles around here. It is refreshing for me at times, to not put on alot of makeup, but just enough to feel comfortable. Like I said, the Word here is ” Laid-Back”. Ok, two words. First couple of shot are the before pics, last shot is the after: after walking around throughout the day. Yes, there is a difference!

Today I am reviewing a sandal by Mephisto. I saw Dawn of Fashion Should Be Fun in these super comfortable looking shoes, in the Helen Style, so when they contacted me, the thought of air-technology certainly appealed to me.They have what is called Soft Air Technology, and this is one type of technology I can get behind.  No cables, oulets or memory needed! It makes the foot bed extra cushiony and helps if one has trouble with joint pain and sore feet as well.

I gave them a test run in Asheville, where one does a fair amount of walking! The city is spread out, so I wore my shoes to a laid back tapas bar, and decided to walk around the city afterward to check how the shoes felt. The first thing I noticed, straightaway, out of the box is they look  small in shape, not as large or wide of a foot bed as a Birkenstock, which made them more feminine and appealing to me. . If Asheville isn’t the perfect place to wear or try these, then I will “eat my shoes!” Ha!

About Mephisto shoes:

“Internationally known for their outstanding craftsmanship and lasting comfort, MEPHISTO footwear makes tired feet a thing of the past. Our revolutionary SOFT-AIR TECHNOLOGY is the innovation behind this exceptional comfort. The flexible SOFT-AIR midsole minimizes the shock from walking, offering protection to your feet, relief for your joints, and proper care of your back. The breathable nature of this exclusive midsole also enhances air circulation to ensure a healthier environment for your feet.”

I had very good communication with the Marketing Rep as well, so customer service is a priority. The Mint Narolbi was my choice in color and texture, a snake-skin look with mint and gold in the shoe. So if you are looking for comfort and style, and a more narrow footbed that looks more feminine , then these sandals might be what you are looking for. I chose to wear them with a loose fitting cargo pant, a cream lace blouse, gold leaf earrings, and the HARMONY Style sandals These are very “on trend” this season, so fashion and function is just what I look for. I also liked the mint/gold combination as that was what I chose and thought would go with much of my casual wear.

Thanks to Mephisto. Harmony style shoes c/o Mephisto








Have a great week!

    Jess, your lace top is so beautiful and perfect with those cargo trousers. They really make the whole look so feminine.
    I have to admit that I am a big fan of chunky comfort sandals….I LOVE a Birkenstock and these look very similar….and, of course, green!
    However, I have not heard of this brand. I wonder why not? I do love my shoes!
    This a a great look.
