Latex is a chemical substance which is used to create rubber. Natural latex is obtained from the sap of certain plants and can be later vulcanized and finished into a variety of products. Latex materials are known to have many applications especially in the footwear industry where they can be used to make shoe insoles and outsoles to add flexibility and extra cushioning.
Sandals are open footwear consisting, in its most basic design; of a sole which is fastened or held to the foot by straps or thongs, leaving most or all of the foot exposed. Sandals are primarily a warm weather type of footwear and can be classified based on the function and activity for which they are intended or by their design and style. Casual and walking sandals are mainly designed for comfort, while sport sandals are mostly intended to provide support, traction and performance. Fashionable and dress sandals for women may have many of the style variations found on other shoe styles such as medium to high heels, platforms, toe covering etc. Other styles of sandals include, but are not limited to; flip flops, thongs, ankle strap sandals, fisherman sandals, wedge sandals, etc.

This is my second pair of this style shoe. The cost is a little steep for me buty last pair lasted 5 or 6 years of heavy wear. Plus ... with the crystal details, they can be dressed up or down.

These are so cute and comfy. Who knew you could have both in a shoe? As always, Mephisto delivered on the promise for comfort. I have a high arch so these have become my "go to" shoes after a long day at work.

My first pair I came by as a "pass along" from a friend. I love those shoes. Yes they are expensive...but comfort you just feel from the very beginning. I have never spent this much on a pair of shoes but I know they last a long time( my "pass along" I have had for 4+ years still look AND feel great. My new ones are great also. I would buy more if they weren't so expensive.K
Mephisto Heidi Have loved this shoe for years

Have purchased several Heidi's throughout the last couple of decades and have worn each of them completely out. They have the ease of Birkenstocks with a snugger fit and better fitting arch. Sincerely hope Mephisto continues making this style.
