Mephisto has been in the forefront of innovation in walking shoe design and construction, responsible for such revolutionary features as speed lacing and air-circulating insoles. What's more, while other walking shoes are often 100% synthetic, rarely seeing a human hand in their manufacture, Mephisto remains a natural product (soft leather, latex, cork and rubber) and continues to be hand made one shoe at a time in the matchless European tradition.
Mephisto is quite simply the finest walking shoe on earth. It takes more than 90 minutes and 140 steps to make just one pair of Mephisto shoes. Mephisto spends a lot of time finding the highest quality leathers and craftsmen to make their shoes. This is obvious in the end result and truly makes a difference for anyone who is used to wearing factory shoes made from cheap/fake leathers.
Walking in Mephisto shoes has been described as ‘walking on clouds’. This French company has some of the most loyal customers due to that feeling and a philosophy of comfort and luxury. Mephisto shoes are designed to fit you better than any other shoe you have ever tried. This is because, not only will they reshape the shoe to the shape of your foot if you cannot find a correct size, but also because the shoe is designed for maximum movement. Mephisto believe that your foot should be able to have a full range of movement while within the shoe. The shoe should not be inhibiting movement, but simply supporting it. These shoes also guarantee your toes a great deal of freedom. Mephisto believes that your toes should never be locked in to each other unable to move. This is unhealthy for your toes and for your walk. The same things exist with the heel. The heel should not fit snug, but should instead cradle your heel allowing you to move freely as you wish.
Many people consider these shoes not a purchase, but an investment in comfort. This is because the experience of purchasing and wearing Mephisto shoes is so different from any other shoe you may have previously purchased. They will also last you forever. From daily painful walking and standing to feeling pleasure and enjoyment - with Mephisto shoes.
