Discontinued. Get your gleam on with these splendid wedges from Mephisto. The patent leather Centina shoe has all the comforts of the brand wrapped up in a stylish design with square toe and touch-fasten strap.

This runs small so order 1/2 larger. These are very interesting shoes....I am not a patent leather fan, but they are somewhere between patent and normal leather and do not stand out as super shiny. The bronze glazing is very subdued....these shoes are by far the most comfortable shoes I own and I own A LOT of shoes. I had bunion sugery last year and my foot always hurts - but not in these! I also have very severe lumbar issues and these shoes seem to help with pain...I was VERY hesitant to purchase these shoes as I thought they might be a little flashy for me. They are not. The Velcro strap helps with foot swelling changes and the heel height is perfect. Looks great with jeans and dress trousers. Very easy walking shoes with perfect arch support and overall foot cushioning.....I normally wear a 7, so I ordered 7.5 and can wear them with thicker socks.

I just ordered this shoe in a half size larger, but am concerned that even that may not fit. Will see. I have been wearing same size forever, was surprised this didn't fit. Nice shoe though, I'm hoping the half size does the trick!

These were lovely shoes and well made. They are easy to get into, e.g. the velcro strap makes getting into and out of a fast. Sadly, I had to return both of the pairs I purchased due to the fact that in both of the sizes (9 and 9.5) the heel was too big and the toe box too narrow.

Love this shoe! The info on line said it runs 1/2 size small; I disagree - I think it is TTS. Because it is patent leather, it is just a bit stiff on the first wear, then after that it's great. I bought the bronze glam gloss - it goes with just about everything. I loved it so much I got the black patent. Shoes are great for casual wear, jeans, running around. Because of the rubber sole, I think they are a bit too casual for work (ie, I would not wear them with trousers); they are fine for casual Fridays when you don't have to wear dress pants.

I bought the shoe in the bronze glam gloss. It looks like a mixture between very dark brown and black, so it goes with anything and everything. I love it!! It is very comfortable, but the leather is just a little stiffer than I expected - probably because it's like a patent leather. Shoe runs TTS and width. The velcro closure and rubber sole make it more casual. It's great for jeans, rain, and walking around in the City if you want to look a little dressier and don't want to wear sneakers.
