I bought this after hearing, by and large, positive things about Birkenstocks from people who have plantar fasciitis, which I struggle with. I went to an orthopedic shoe store and was sized appropriately. The salesman kind of raised his eyebrows when he saw my arches. Apparently, they are quite high. However, that store did not carry the high arch support Birks so I ordered them here at Zappos. They arrived quickly and in good condition. They were not as ugly on my feet as I had feared. Actually, in their way, they were kind of cute. It was a new experience to wear a contoured foot bed. The arch support extended the entire length of my arch, rather than a little lump near the front or back of my foot. The first days my feet were achy and swollen before the foot bed conformed to my foot. Now, my feet are in happy harmony with the Birks. I got back from a trade show in San Francisco this week. I wore Mephisto Helens during the day and they did quite well for me, but at night when we walked all over town to eat and take in the sights, my feet felt great in my Birks. The straps did not rub anywhere and it almost felt like I did not have plantar fasciitis at all. Amazing product. I drank the Kool-Aid. I am going to wear Birks wherever and whenever I can get away with it from now on.

This shoe is okay. I liked the arch support and ordered a 37. It was a tad bit long and had to have more holes put in the straps. I wear a 6 WW and while this shoe was wide enough it was a tad bit long. Also it is not flattering on a wide foot. I kept it because of the arch support and will wear in when I just want something to slip on and off. Am not as impressed with this line as most seem to be. The women's shoes are not as wide as the unisex shoes, and therefore do not work for me.

My comments are directed to those with plantar fasciitis: This is a great shoe. Both the longitudinal arch and the metatarsal arch are larger than almost any other shoe but not as large as I would like them (I've never worn a shoe with too much arch support). The heel cup feels better (smaller) and there is greater pronation control than with my other Arizona Soft Sole Birkenstocks. The floppy uppers are comfortable on your skin but collapse when your foot is out of the shoe. I think that I would prefer traditional leather uppers which are not available on the high arch version. I had to make an additional hole in the straps with a hammer and nail around 2 cm more medial than the most medial hole (size 13). I find it hard to believe that many have feet large enough to use the lateral holes in the strap. For plantar fasciitis, buy these: HTP heel seats and Orthaheel sandals (flip flops). I will also try the Vasyli medical sandal which is a variation on the Orthaheel sandal. I am still evaluating but have high hopes for the Alzner orthotic from Ebay. Read about the theory of this orthotic which is designed as a form to which your foot should conform. I tried the Moszkito Archy flip flops which are supposed to be "archy" and the Sole flip flops but they do not have the support that the Orthaheels have. I try to buy all of my shoes from Zappos because the return policy is about as good as it can get and I like the shoe reviews.

I'd also recommend: Orthaheel, HTP heel seats, Vasyli medical sandal

Without a doubt the most comfortable Birkenstocks I've ever worn. This is my second pair of the high arch model bought from Zappos. Be sure to order narrow if you usually wear the medium width, as the high arch medium seems to be floppy compared to medium in the regular arch models. Zappos' service is legendary; I just wish they carried a wider selection of high arch Birks.

These sandals are amazing. Bought these at the recommendation of podiatrist. I have very high arches and with age the muscles and tendons have stretched and I have become flat footed. Ankles are rolling in big time and it was causing pain in knees, hips and feet. \r\n\r\nNormally I wear an 8.5 Medium width so I ordered a 39 regular, I did have to exchange that pair for a 38 narrow because the 39 regular was huge on me in both width and length. Strap adjustment was initially a nuisance and now that they are adjusted they are perfect. Pain is improving and these are very comfy. No pinching, rubbing or slipping. They are not the most attractive sandal but for comfort, I will live with that. Will certainly purchase other Birkenstocks.

I'd also recommend: Dansko, some Teva

My podiatrist recommended that I get high-arch support Birkenstocks for my plantar fasciitis. My foot is very narrow and this shoe - in narrow - is still big and floppy for me. And ugly for my taste - very, very ugly. But my, oh my are they comfortable. I wear them as house shoes and get immediate relief for my heel pain. I would defintely buy these hideous, expensive, too-wide-despite-their-sizing shoes again. Thanks, Zappos, for carrying them!
