I have seen these shoes for decades and wondered if they're as great as their aficionados claim. I had a pair of Birks fisherman sandals years ago, but found the footbed fatiguing for serious walking. This softer one conformed quickly and feels more forgiving. While they aren't serious walking shoes, they are very comfortable, and I haven't wanted to take them off. I particularly love traveling (which I do a lot) with them, I love that they are equally comfortable with socks and bare feet, and I think they look cute with either long pants or cropped. I normally wear an 8 1/2 and consulted with the company to be sure about the size. Definitely order a narrow unless you have very wide feet. As for length, a 39 which I tried on in a store was much too big; the 38 which I ordered is just barely the right size. My heel sits in the cup, but with no length to spare, so I don't wear thick socks with them. However, the company told me it's fine as long as my heel doesn't strike the edge. My toes are also at the end of the front with no extra space, but because the toe box is so wide, the suede so slipper-soft, and my foot hits all the right supports in the footbed, they feel great.

OK, I'm now an expert in the sizing of these shoes. At first, I ordered them in my usual Birk size (39 regular, I usually wear a woman's US 9) from a different place and they sent me a narrow even though that's not what I ordered (teaches me to not stray from Zappos!). I didn't notice at first that they were narrow, and thought they didn't fit because they were soft footbed. So I ended up ordering a size up (40) in both narrow and regular from Zappos. Then I figured out that the first pair I had were narrow, so I reordered from Zappos my normal size (39 reg). Now I had 39 narrow and regular, then 40 narrow and regular. Of course, the 39 regular were perfect. So turns out after all this, I'm the same size in the soft footbed Bostons as I am in all other Birks (including the regular footbed Bostons). However, I read here that some found them smaller. If that's the case and you need to order up, definitely order up in the narrow. If you order up in a regular it will be huge (unless you have majorly wide feet). I also found that the narrow versions of my 39s weren't just narrower, they were a lot shorter. The soft footbeds are lovely, they add a hint of extra comfort to the shoe, and there is a lot shorter break in time. However, if you're looking for these to be super cushioned, they aren't. I love Zappos, fast free shipping and returns makes them ideal. If it weren't for them I would have had to go through a lot more expense returning these shoes when looking for my size, since no place around me carries soft footbed Bostons in store. I love you Zappos!

I am a long time Birkenstock fan. I have considered these clogs for a few years and finally sprung for them. The soft footbed was a new adventure, but based on the reviews, I gave them a try. Pure heaven! Soft, supportive and totally dorky! If you are going to wear Birks, you have to decide to overlook the style issue and just stomp out there with pride. I actually had several people compliment them. They do run wide and big; my regular shoe size is 7 1/2 or 8 B and I always get Birkenstocks in 38 Narrow and there is still room for winter socks. I love them!

I really like the Soft Footbed shoes. I wear these in the house as slippers since I need a more supportive shoe than slippers can provide. I tried the regular Birkenstocks, but since I had foot surgery my super sensitive feet can just not do the breaking in they require. The Soft Footbeds fit the bill. They are really supportive and require no breaking in.

My teenage daughter loves these. They are super comfortable. Run large. She is typically a size 7 1/2 and the size 37 fit her in these.
