The shoe was too wide. It was very uncomfortable and I needed a comfortable soft sole shoe because I am on my feet all day and needed a lot of support. My massage therapist referred these shoes for me and I am very sorry they didn't work out. I am so sorry but I think it is my feet rather than your shoe.

My absolute favorite shoe is the Birkenstock Arizona soft bed. However, there are times when needs a slight more elegant casual sandal - doing business in Austin TX or even Clearwater FL requires slightly upscale comfort, even for a crazy cat lady artist / writer of a certain age. This fits the bill. Not quite as perfectly comfortable for my feet as the Arizona, but damn close.

I always love Birkenstocks. Have had multiple broken bones in both feet -- Birkenstocks and New Balance are the only shoes that I can wear. With all that said -- I did not like these Birkenstocks at all. I was specifically looking for the two separate bands as my bling-birkies from about 6 years ago are starting to look a little, ummm, worn-every-day-looking (just because they have been is irrelevant!). These Birkenstocks were miserably uncomfortable from the instant I put them on. The bands are extremely hard leather and would have created blisters on my feet within minutes had I allowed them. I adjusted the buckles several times thinking I just wasn't getting them settled correctly onto my feet. Nope. The leather from these shoes were made from some dang tough cows is all I have to say. Sad about returning a pair of Birkis but these ones were unlike any other pair I've ever owned. I gave them one star in everything.

Love the silver metallic, but I do not really like the Birko-flor material. This is my 10th pair of Birks and these are replacing a pair of Arizona's I purchased 14 years ago. The quality is still there and I think it is worth the extra money to get the real leather uppers. I am going to exchange them. Zappos got them to me next day! Awesome.

Love these sandals, but I have narrow feet and these don't come in narrow; too wide. Also, the strap around the ankle was way too big. Maybe for another girl, but not this one. Darn! Also the leather around the toe is thick and not soft. Beautiful looking, though.

I love Birkenstock and these are pretty stylish and comfortable on. They look exactly like posted on the picture - shiny silver. I'm not brave enough to wear silver so I'm exchanging them for pewter.

I have a chronically sore right foot. As such, I always have to wear shoes. Even inside. I have tried a multitude of "house shoes" and Birks are my go to. They may not always be the cutest, but they sure do feel good. I normally wear a 9.5 or 10 and have a narrow foot. I bought these in a 40 narrow and they fit perfectly. The great thing about Birks is they get better with time and wear.

I bought these to wear as house slippers. Having many foot problems I don't take a step without good support and have found that supportive slippers just don't hold up. They have great support and run true to size. Not the most stylish, but I was after function so they are perfect!

Loved the sandal and also the toe. Unfortunately the top strap hit my foot too high, almost to ankle, was uncomfortable. Had to return.

Took me a minute to LOVE these. Wasn't sure about the hard plastic toe piece. I wore them inside for a few days just to break them in. They are my favorite pair so far & I have 6 pair of various styles. I'm glad they worked out for me, I hope they do for you.

I just purchased these a couple of weeks ago. At first, they were a little uncomfortable, but after breaking them in, each time I wear them they feel better. I read online how to break them in so I understood. I am starting to love them now.

As a chef on my feet 50-60 hours a week, I'm pleased to say I've finally found the ultimate kitchen shoe. They're very comfortable, in usual Birkenstock fashion, and I find my feet stay drier in these than the rubbery Birki style. And they're way less narrow and constricting than Danskos. The only downside would be the air vents on the top of the foot...these could be sketchy should hot liquid be splashed on your feet...but they're so comfortable, I'm willing to take that chance. Just bought my second pair, but not my last, not by a long shot.

I got these last summer (at a retail store, and not from Zappos, but I wanted to leave the review in case it might be helpful for others), and I've worn them several times. As suggested, I tried wearing them for a short amount of time the first few times I wore them. They were always comfortable, but once I'd worn them enough to get them to really start molding to my feet, they were even more comfortable! I think you have to make the commitment to give them a fair chance. This is probably true for other Birkenstock styles also. I initially tried one size smaller and I thought it looked like it fit, but the sales associate said I'd need more room, otherwise my toes would bump up against the front edge of the footbed. I went up a size and there is a little room at the front and back of the sandal. I checked with the Birkenstock website, and this is appropriate for sizing and fit for these sandals and shoes. Overall, I'm very happy with them! They're cute and comfortable! Also, be sure to get some of the Cork Life cork sealant (nobody told me about it, so I'm trying to help you out).

Was a little disappointed in color. Is really a dark navy and I have other Birks same size. This one my toes set on the ridge in the front.

I haven't owned Birkenstocks since 1990 and purchased these to help with my plantar fasciitis. Wow, these are awesome and look really cute with everything. These will be my go to shoes this summer. Had to return for a size smaller but they fit perfectly now.

I got these shoes because I heard it helped with plantar fasciitis. You really need to break them in before going on a whole day wearing these shoes. I started off by wearing these in the house (it was too cold to wear outside anyway!) and as the weather got warmer, i started off by wearing them to the store, then to the park, and then managed to finally break them in to wear it everywhere (i live in new york). overall, i think the arches really help me walk better but be warned-- they hurt like hell when you first wear them

I love these shoes! Exactly as pictured. My usual Birkenstock size fits great like always. Unfortunately the rainbow stripes are being returned. They are super fun but I've discovered they also come in beige stripes (Zappos does not currently carry) and I will be able to wear those much more. Maybe I will purchase the rainbow stripes next summer! I really want to wear these colorful shoes right now and own both pairs but Dave Ramsey says one pair will suffice!

Bought this after a friend recommended this for a comfortable and supportive footwear. At first when I received it, it was so hard and uncomfortable, it took few days and it broke in, I've never sworn to a shoe like this! Great for driving, walking and just strolling to my local shopping! I'm definitely investing in a few more of other styles from this company!

I am so pleased with these. If you are on the fence about the faux leather, the Birko Flor seems of good quality and feels good, like new unbroken in leather. I am replacing a suede version that I wore for 20 some years, even resoled, they do not last forever. Pleased to feel these are supportive shoes that also tell me my others were very much past their prime.

Just wanted to give people a heads up to size down in this. I'm an 8 and ordered the 8-8.5 size and it was way too big. I wouldn't have kept it anyway though because they look like clown sandals they're so chunky between the width of the shoe and the size of the straps. Not at all a dainty shoe but it probably would be comfortable.
