In 1965 Martin Michaeli founded MEPHISTO with the sole intention and his deep rooted ambition to create the world’s best shoes.
The unparalleled comfort, perfect fit, unsurpassed comfort features and unique Soft-Air technology of these shoes, which are valued and loved around the world for their unique features, guarantee a super-soft and tireless walking experience - even after many hours you will feel fit and full of energy in MEPHISTO shoes.
The innovative SOFT-AIR TECHNOLOGY is the secret behind the extraordinary walking comfort when wearing any MEPHISTO shoes: the flexible, permanently elastic and extremely soft SOFT-AIR midsole reduces the shock from walking to an absolute minimum.
This relieves the joints, vertebrae and the spine - it is like walking on a soft carpet of moss, making you feel fit and full of energy even after many hours of wear.
In adapting to an upright gait the human foot is highly anatomical and functionally complex. A quarter of the approx. 220 bones in the human body are located in the feet.
In order to protect the particularly pain sensitive feet from the hard impact of daily walking, MEPHISTO has outfitted every one of its shoes with the internationally patented SOFT-AIR TECHNOLOGY.
Our feet spend long hours inside shoes every day. For many people this leads to increased perspiration - the climate inside the shoe is similar to a sauna, which often leads to uncomfortable side effects!
The SOFT-AIR TECHNOLOGY along with the all natural inner linning, ensures a healthy and constantly pleasant foot climate.
Hard treading impact of walking constantly puts a strain on the whole body. Joints, vertebrae and the spine are subject to this unnatural stress while walking on hard surfaces for a lifetime.
Special shock absorbers in the heel and the soft, shock absorbing SOFT-AIR midsole in all MEPHISTO shoes and sandals reduces this damaging impact to an absolute minimum.
