Comfort walking shoes. Both feet should be measured, as most people have one foot which is larger than the other. It’s also a good idea to measure your feet at the end of the day as they are usually slightly larger at that time. Please keep in mind length is only one dimension. Feet are three-dimensional, so width and thickness of the feet should also be considered.
This casual oxford from Mephisto is a perfect Match. The durable leather upper and laid-back style are great for relaxed outings and everyday wear, while the Soft-Air Technology and Caoutchouc rubber sole give you comfort and support where you need it most.See all Product description

Update: after 9 months of intermittent wear, these shoes are still really comfortable and good. However, they are starting to look run down. I am not sure if the nubuck will ever look good enough even after refurbishment. If all you get out of the nubuck is 9 months, then these are grossly overpriced. I am wondering if the regular leather version would have been a better idea.
I do a lot of walking on pretty rubbish feet, and I bought this pair to replace my old Mephistos, which I owned (and used a lot) for nearly ten years. In a search for variety, I would quite often walk into good shoe stores wearing them, and ask to try their best shoes. Invariably, the response was pretty much, "You're wearing them. Do you want to try a different color?".
I am desperate. So I have purchased this pair I am currently reviewing, the Men's, size 6, supposedly the equivalent to the women's size I have always worn. I have tried them on. I think they will do. They feel a bit wider, especially in the heel. There are five metal lacing rings in addition to the lacing "eyes" near the toe as opposed to four on the women's model. I suppose that's why the shoestring seems so much shorter and harder to tie. I have not yet worn them. I am hoarding them for "special" occasions. I also fear that they may slip on my heel. All told, it is still a superior shoe: quality materials and good craftsmanship. The proof will be in the wearing. I gave them a 4 because I just don't know yet. I only wish Mephisto hadn't forgotten women.
Mephisto's are more costly but worth it. I also learned I can send them in for re-soling when required and when they are returned they are basically as new. The cost is roughly 50% of the cost of new. Trouble is the shoes never seem to wear out.
The minute I picked up this pair of shoes, I suspected there might be a problem. These shoes weight about half as much as my old pair of Match shoes. I suspect they use much less material and much lighter weight material in the sole. This is beneficial to Mephisto in terms of production costs and shipping costs, but does little to benefit my feet. My old ones were made in Portugal. This pair was made in Bosnia.
I have been a loyal customer of Mephisto for over 20 years (despite the high price) because they were so comfortable, never caused pain and were good for my high arches. Sadly, that is no longer the case. This pair causes me heel pain, knee pain and makes my walks less enjoyable. If I wanted that, I could go to Payless Shoe Source and get two pair for $20 instead of spending over $300 for one pair of shoes. If Mephisto's production costs or labor costs increased, I would have much rather seen then increase prices, than lower the quality of the product.
I must go sit in a hot tub now and soak my aching body. Goodbye Mephisto.
What a shame.
1) The reason people think these shoes are more comfortable than normal shoes is because the sole is too soft. But that also reduces the support to the food. Secondly, it increases the amount of movement of materials around the foot.
2) In addition to that, the insole has perforations. That increases friction of the insole with the base of the foot.
3) On top of these two flaws, the shoe is sized weird. If 11 is not 11, then why are you marking it 11?
