These shoes have a big toe box and fit like Birks always fit under the foot. I laughed at one of the reviews where the reviewer said he/she didn't like them - felt like walking on rolled coins. Well, they do take some getting used to but they are great if you have a high arch and wide feet like I do. I wear a 7.5 M in normal shoes and a 38 in the Birks. Also, if you ever have foot surgery, these shoes will be your best friend after the "boot".

The most uncomfortable shoe I have ever tried. Wide enough, but feels like you are walking on rolled coins.

I usually wear an 8-8.5 but they were way to big. I ordered the next size down and they fit great. I did try to wear them to long at first and my right foot hurt. But, once I broke them in the way they recommended too, they are very comfy.

These are the great Birkenstock shoes that I've have always loved. I really took a liking to the color online, and ordered a pair. But when they came and I opened the box- I did a double take. They looked black. Only when you take them out in the light can you actually see the green color come through. I'm sure with some wear the color would have worn through even more. But I returned them and reverted back to my favorite saddle brown.

I stand all day at work and my feet were in agony wearing my flats, and even running shoes. So, I bought these on the advice of my dad who swears by Birks for support and comfort. They take a bit of getting used to because of the hard, thick soles, and they're a bit heavy, but they really make a difference. My feet no longer hurt even after 7 hours of standing. The only downside is that it took about three weeks before they stopped staining my feet and socks black. Even though they're not the most stylish shoes in the world, they are very supportive and comfortable even if you have wide feet (I got the wide width style). Just wear black socks for the first month and you'll be good to go!

I wear it all the time, I do not want to take them off. I work a lot standing and I enjoy every minute of it. I am grateful that they exist and I love this style.
