In 1965, Mephisto was established by Martin Michaeli in Sarrebourg, France. The founder’s motto was to create the finest footwear you can imagine. In the same year, Mephisto introduced its first shoe, a moccasin. Eight years later, Mephisto took out a patent for an exclusive production method. In the mid-70s, Mephisto benefits from the upcoming mass sports trend and had the finger on the pulse with the “Originals” concept. During the mid-80s, Mephistos successfully entered first the Japanese, two years later the US market. Just before the millennium, Mephisto already offered 600 different designs in 50 countries. 2006 was a very important year for the brand as it introduced innovative Soft Air technology that added the ultimate comfort to footwear items. With this technological innovation, the shoes adjust to the human anatomy and relieve sensitive spots, thanks to shock absorbers at the heel. Last but not least, Mephisto maintain their high standards of handcrafted excellence, uses high-quality leathers for natural breathability and offer a perfect fit. Yeah, Mephistos are truly an investment in the health and comfort of your feet, back and legs.
