Handmade cult shoes with a touch of nostalgia
The classic that never goes out of fashion. Even after 50 years, the ORIGINAL collection by MEPHISTO consists of shoes with real personality. A shoe full of character that has people around the world talking.
When the company founder, Martin Michaeli, created this new type of shoes in 1965, it represented an innovation in the world of shoes. The quick-tying hiking and casual shoes with their unique SOFT AIR technology opened up a whole new way of walking – as soft and easy as if you were walking on moss. They enthused customers worldwide with their excellent wearing properties and hit the nail on the head in terms of modern style. Our ORIGINALS were copied hundreds of times, but remained themselves original and unrivalled.
We have further developed this cult shoe with a touch of nostalgia, now offering new designs and something for every taste: either subdued and casual, ton-sur-ton, suitable for making a fashionable understatement. Or would you rather opt for a stylish eye-catcher in versatile and colourful interpretations.
Treat yourself to originals. The ORIGINALS.
Handmade at our shoe factory.
Unique in fit and quality!
"I must have this cult shoe!"
