Behind the luxury footwear brand Mephisto was a passionate man named Martin Michaeli, whose only purpose and desire was to design and create the world's finest footwear. Michaeli founded Mephisto in France in 1965 with his savings from the time he spent in the USA and developed a range of superb quality shoes, including the now iconic moccasin.
As a shoe engineer in Germany in the 1950s, Martin Michaeli first travelled to the US where he was a footwear designer and footwear factory manager. In 1965 Michaeli moved to France where he assembled a small team and set up Mephisto, with the aim of creating some of the world’s most comfortable and highest quality footwear. Mephisto developed its iconic moccasin shoe which remains popular to this day, and patented a unique manufacturing method to create incredibly comfortable footwear.
As it grew, Mephisto became a world-famous brand renowned for its stylish, casual sneaker-shoe concept called Originals. The classic Mephisto style continues to this day - one of the original smart/casual crossover brands, Mephisto shoes offer exceptional quality and all day comfort that can be worn in a wide range of situations.
Every Mephisto shoe is handmade by master shoemakers inside their factory in France; that's no wonder why this unique footwear brand won the award for the "Best Footwear Brand of France" 3 times in a row. You can expect a pleasant and cosy walking experience wearing the iconic Mephisto Rainbow shoes.
So many people love these shoes because they minimise shocks whilst walking, helping relieve joint pain. Each shoe has flexible midsoles, and the soft-air tech offers protection to the feet.
What differentiates Mephisto from other brands is their unparalleled walking ease and consistently high-quality standards. Choose from a range of styles and colours to suit your fit; you can rock these shoes with almost any everyday outfit, denim or trousers.
