We all know that Mephisto makes an incredible, ultimate-comfort shoe that beats out all competitors. So when the Mephisto Allrounder collection came out, I wanted to check it out. I could assume it would be a high-quality shoe, but what would make this collection unique from other Mephisto shoe collections? Why did Mephisto design the Allrounder, and would it really be that much different or better than any other Mephisto?
The Allrounder absolutely delivers on the promise of a Mephisto shoe and more. This collection is truly different from other Mephistos, and it is not just a gimmick to get you to buy another pair. From the technology, to the fit and comfort, to the style and design, the Allrounder exceeds the standards of a Mephisto shoe. And that, my friends, is really hard to do.
Tracking Down the Allrounder
With so many incredible features to check out with the Allrounder, I did not want to waste time finding a great retailer. So I headed straight to My Favorite Mephisto Retailer. Here, I know I will get great prices, superb selection, and knowledgeable staff. They also always has the newest styles for the upcoming seasons so I can get what I want before I need it.
Mephisto Allrounder Technology Difference
Essentially, the Allrounder collection improves on Mephisto's already state of the art shoe technology.
- Engineered with newer designs, these shoes expand on Mephisto's commitment to quality
- Allrounders are designed specifically for outdoor activities - different activities get different shoes - very few companies understand the importance behind this
- Advanced cushioning materials, design, and padding
- Improved insoles - both permanent and removable - for support and fit
- Improved durability with an understanding of the kind of wear different activities will command of the Allrounder
- Quick and efficient lacing systems
- Shoes designed for any weather impact in addition to activity
- Stability control techniques
- Air circulation systems
- The best traction and grip I have ever found in any outdoor performance shoe
- Each pair is hand-finished for thorough detail and originality
There are other performance outdoor footwear manufacturers, but Mephisto has really cornered the market on understanding the very specific needs of each activity. A walking shoe is not the same as a water shoe, which is not the same as hiking boot, which is not the same as a winter hiking boot. The Allrounder combines extensive research and creates a shoe that is engineered and produced for the activity you love - and since it is a Mephisto product, you get the same custom fit that comes from the contoured elements, design, and materials of any Mephisto shoe or boot.
The Mephisto Allrounder Fit and Comfort Difference
Using the above improvements on understanding the different needs of the shoes, each Allrounder is designed for maximum comfort and performance fit. These shoes will feel so comfortable on, you may never want to take them off. With contoured insoles and cushion technology, these shoes end up feeling like custom fit shoes every time!
Style and Design Difference
These shoes are just about the edgiest, hippest collection to come out of Mephisto - especially their newest arrivals. These shoes look and reflect the technology behind them and incorporate some really unique and, frankly, just cool aesthetic elements.
- Mesh over leather
- Silver stitching
- Patterned cut leather
- Fur accents
- Reflective accents
- Multi-colored laces
- Cut suede leather with metal embellishments
- Brushed patent leather
- Metallic leathers
- Plaid fabrics
- Hi-top styles
- Colors like rust, coral, and rose
- Streamlined designs for function and cool style
Clearly not your standard Mephisto, these shoes reflect the sporty, active, fun, and fresh style and outlook of their wearers.
Allrounders Rounded Out
Any outdoor activity or sport requires footwear that is specific to the activity. Mephisto took that knowledge and created the Allrounder collection. With all of the best of a Mephisto shoe and more, this collection will exceed your expectations and, unlike other "performance" shoes, the Allrounder will improve your performance.
"Maybe it's a little boring to say that the Niro is the best shoe I've ever owned - it is the most popular Allrounder - but it is true. This shoe can't be beat for comfort, fit, or appearance."
"The Teramo is the best shoe out there for walking and hiking. It is a low-top so a lot of folks might not choose it for hiking, but I wouldn't trade the traction, support, or custom fit for anything."
"It was sort of a no-brainer for me to get the Camper. I camp a lot. But this shoe was not just great for the campsite - set up, work, etc - it was great for hiking, exploring, and trailblazing - all of my favorite camping activities. Worth the price tag for sure."
Well, folks, the Allrounder is pretty impressive. It is not a cheap shoe in price, but then again, it is not a cheap shoe in quality either. The Mephisto is well worth the investment, and if you go to The Top Mephisto Retailer, you'll get the best price. Don't go another season without a pair.
