I bought these as a replacement for my old brown, two-strap Birk's that I found I didn't wear much, simply because they weren't so pretty...these in gold are a big improvement (I'll actually wear them!) and surprisingly they stay on my feet even better than my old pair, which is a huge plus. I don't have to curl my toes to keep them from slipping right off. I took my usual 38 narrow and they fit perfectly. Comfy and actually (almost) cute. Plus, of course, I received them in record time. I don't even know how Zappos does it.

I loved these the second I saw them on Zappos. My shoe size is 8.5 or 9. My foot is on the narrow side, but I don't buy narrow width shoes. I bought these in a size 40, and they're about a half a size too big. I considered exchanging them, but I think they'll still look like skis even in the smaller size. I expected them to have a more delicate, streamlined look than other Birks, but I was wrong. Sadly, these are going back.

I want to love these shoes. I am a longtime fan of Birkenstocks, and I bought these to replace some beloved sandals that had to be retired after years of hard wear. In terms of style, these shoes are super-cute (well, as far as Birkenstocks go). I definitely wear them with sundresses and skirts, and everyone admires them. The only downside so far is comfort. I know Birkenstocks take a while to break in, so I can't expect these to be as comfortable as my old sandals right away. But it's been a few weeks, and the leather straps are still rubbing uncomfortably on the tops of my feet. I am going to persist with trying to break them in, and I hope the problem resolves itself. But so far, the strap design does seem to rub more than my old Gizeh's did.

I'd also recommend: Walking Cradles, Mephisto, Clarks, Sanita

I loved the fact that Birkenstocks can dress up and look super cute. The gold is a pretty alternative to the more sporty looking ones. I found the top part to be more restricting and causing pain after a while on my foot. There are only 3 holes to adjust the buckle and the loosest is still a little too narrow for my foot. Haven't worn them ever since and it's somewhat disappointing since the shoe runs for twice as much as the regular Birkenstock.

I can't really rate the overall comfort because my fiance ordered these for me in a 38 and they were enormous. I always wear a 7 in regular shoes and a 7.5 in running shoes but have never had to size down to a 6 or 6.5. I'm not sure if I will even try to go down to the 37 because they still may be far too big based on the way the 38s fit. Definitely could be cute, but not enough to send back and forth another two times. Also, I have other Birkenstocks in 38 that fit perfect, so this was definitely off.
