  • The Boston from Birkenstock® is a classic clog that will add style and comfort to your wardrobe.
  • Breathable oiled leather upper with a matching adjustable instep strap for a perfect fit.
  • Anatomically correct cork footbed, crafted from cork that is 100% renewable and sustainable, encourages foot health.

  • Raised toe bar is designed to encourage the natural gripping motion of your feet, exercising your legs and aiding circulation.
  • Neutral heel profile and deep heel cup keeps the natural padding of your foot where it belongs, under the heel, distributing your body weight more evenly.
  • Flexible EVA outsole offers lightweight, shock absorbing support with lasting durability.

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.

The finish on the oiled leather is refined and unique. If you pinpoint the correct size for your Birks, you will wear them for the rest of your life.

This is the second pair of Birkenstocks that I have owned. My last pair were the Milano style sandals. They lasted 16 years. The only reason I threw them out was I got frustrated finding someone to repair the worn-out tread. I wear my Bostons around the house often, especially for cooking. They give me a lot of support when I'm standing at the stove or counter top. The Bostons keep my feet plenty warm with the appropriate socks even in the winter in Maryland. I also got some Dr. Martens Shoe Balsam after reading the product reviews and applied it to my new Birks. They look fantastic and it helps them repel the muck. If you have never worn Birkenstocks before, wear them gradually. It takes a couple of times before you get accustomed to the footbed. I ordered a women's size 11.5 by mistake. Zappos was terrific about the exchange.

I'd also recommend: Keen, Dr. Martens

Thought I'd have an issue being that I have a high arch, but the fit is fine. I ordered my usual Birkenstock size, which is a half size smaller than my regular shoe size. Feels good for new Berk's.

I wanted to replace my first basic pair of black Birkenstock shoes that I have had for over 15 years. These seem to fit the bill and are more stylish than the first pair. I own approximately 30 pair of Birkenstock, including sandals for summer wear, and have rarely been disappointed with any of them. Birkenstock makes a great product. Zappos.com has a great selection, more than the average retail store.

I've always enjoyed Birkenstock sandals for the comfort of the footbed so I decided to try these. Same footbed, same comfort all day as I stand at my chair cutting hair. Love them! And I was blown away to receive them 2 days after ordering from Zappos! Real impressive service for free shipping.
