Love these sandals. My daughters were so impressed with style that I bought them each a pair and they wear them all the time. Very comfortable with little wear in time.

I have a huge number of Birkenstock sandals and clogs and have worn them comfortably for years, but I think the quality had deteriorated. All of a sudden they are killing my feet. The sole seems harder. And if I get them wet, it seems that all the support disappears and the sole seems even harder. It seems like the quality of everything is deteriorating due to corporations hiring cheap offshore labor, so I wonder if Birkenstock has lowered their standards for profit like everyone else. Whatever. I'm being forced to switch to Naot because I can no longer wear this brand.

Huge, my foot was swimming in the front straps, had to go back. It is a little weird that the upper is lined with felt so it was soft. Probably can't go a size down because it was the proper length. Sad because they might look nice and are the style I was looking for.

Been wearing Birks for years. This shoe continues the experience of comfort and support. Great for high arch and heel Spurs.

Best-looking Birkenstock sandals I've worn, and most secure for walking. I am totally satisfied with them. Even the buckle works well - it's substantial leather, but softens enough that the buckle is easy to fasten. The support for my size 9 high-arch foot is perfect. I like the oiled brown leather color, which is a middle range brown with some life to it. Very good shoe, and I've tried many other sandals with not nearly the look and fit of these.

Well, you can't really go wrong with Birkenstocks. One of my other pairs is 20+ years old and still going. These are quite a bit more stylish and seem more streamline. A bit thinner than my Arizonas, they still fit my slightly wide foot perfectly. I did not have a problem/pain with the toe thong as others have mentioned, but I do notice it's there. These are very attractive and look great with anything: from shorts to a summer dress. They feel quite secure when they're on unlike some other shoes in this style.

Love these. I need lots and lots of arch support. These have it and are super-cute too.

I bought this product based on the glowing reviews. Unfortunately the horizontal strap near my ankle cut into my left foot until I had to bandage the area. The situation has improved now that my foot is developing calluses.

I love, love this shoe, why not give us some colors in it besides just neutral colors; I wear a narrow width and it is so great to find a shoe that fits right out of the box. thanks, but do try to talk them in to some pretty summer colors.

These are definitely not narrow and I took a gamble that these would be more like "regular" width shoes since Birkenstocks are too wide for me. Well it was a good call. These still have some extra width but look and feel far more like normal width shoes. I am not a fan of Birkenstocks normally because they're sort of too "granola" for me but these look a touch more sophisticated than most. Just comfy, walkable slides. Good arch support for those of us with abnormally high arches.

I always use the Gizeh regular footbed, which fits me perfectly in narrow. Since I have extremely narrow feet, I thought the Arizona would not fit, but to my surprise it does. It is a bit more loose than the Gizeh but it works fine. Love the soft footbed, super comfortable. Both models do wonders for my back, and feet.

I had to order three pairs of these shoes before I got the right fit, but it was worth it! Many reviews say that this shoe runs big, so I ordered a size smaller than I normally would. For me the length was true to size. However, I do think they run wide. I know I have narrow feet, but I do not generally buy narrow shoes - they simply don't make that many, so I ignore the issue and wear the regular shoes. The narrow Birks are perfect for me, though! I can tell that the break in period will be a little bit of a struggle - these shoes are stiff, and have a lot more support than anything I've worn before. Last summer I broke in a pair of Rainbow sandals, and it was well worth the work.

Higher arches beware. With these I've learned that soft footbed Birkenstocks are for folks with flatter arches. My high-arched feet felt no support whatsoever in these. These were also slightly shorter in length than any of the original footbed Birks that I've ever owned. These sandals look great but I'll be returning them for the original footbed Arizona.

I have the regular sole Birkenstock Gizeh's for a couple years and love them! When I saw these, I thought they would be a fun alternative to my silver gizeh's, but unfortunately, so not true. I knew that the Papillio's have a lower arch, but it's as if the whole footbed has raises and dips where my foot does not. So uncomfortable on my high arch foot. And to make matters worse, the platform does not allow for the sandal to flex, so you have an awkward stride. Uncomfortable Berks. Boo! :(

I knew the Birko-Flor would not look exactly like leather. But it is really tacky looking - it is shiny and plasticky. It looks cheap and the shoes do not feel like they would hold up to much walking.

These were not for me, I ended up getting the Birkenstock Mayari and am very happy with those. So the Gizeh we're my first try at Birkenstocks and as soon as I put them on I knew I wouldn't be keeping them. I'd read all the reviews about the plastic toe piece and since so many people were still happy with them I decided to get them anyway. It wasn't the toe piece that made me send these back though, it was the thong flap. On my foot the loose flap of the thong strap just looked weird and made my foot look kind of wide and naked, it's difficult to describe but they made my foot look ugly. I didn't even get to walking around in them to test the toe piece because I was definitely not going to wear these all summer. The Mayari look great on my foot and with all my clothes, jeans skirts shorts, doesn't matter the straps look and feel great! Glad I didn't settle for these.

So very happy with this shoe, I've worn it every day this week and it goes with everything! This is exactly what I was looking for, with summer temps here I found it just in time. I started with the Gizeh in blue Birko-flor and I just didn't like how that style looked on my foot, the weird flap of a thong and the plastic toe piece just didn't do it for me. I knew I wanted a pair of Birks (finally) so went back to the drawing board and found the Mayari. I love the adjustable straps as I have a very high instep and arches, so it's nice to be able to loosen it to the perfect tightness, not floppy, but not cutting off my circulation. The shoe is super comfortable, and I wear them to work in a casual office and they are well above a flip flop especially in the oiled leather, which is gorgeous. I usually wear a 9.5 and went with the 40 after reading other reviews, it fits perfectly. I have average width feet I would say, but my toe area is definitely wide and I'm glad I went with the regular width rather than the narrow. Highly recommended!

I was really looking forward to these sandals, I saved up my money for them (like a little kid)! But when I finally got them, the sandals really hurt my big toe. I even limped around in them. I know Birks take time to break in, but the problem is the thong. I didn't return them because I knew they wouldn't be reused, since Birks mold to your feet. I am going to keep wearing them, and I hope I can break them in, but I would caution anyone who buys these as their "go-to" everyday sort of shoes.

Love these shoes! They will feel stiff at first. Wear them around the house for a few days (for a few hours at a time) to break them in. Once you break them in and get them molded to your fit, you'll be hooked!

These shoes are great! I was nervous at first because they gave me blisters when I first started wearing them but as other reviews say it took about 2 weeks to break them in and Bam, they felt like magic! These are going to be the perfect shoes for my study abroad program in England this summer.

I have flat feet, and these sandals are the only ones with a truly supportive footbed. I had to size down, but that wasn't a big deal.
