Great Barefoot Thong - My husband and I are active nudists. This barely there thong is the perfect sun worshiper sandal. You are barefoot with a sole. My husband wore flip flops until he tried this thong. Looks great with shorts, skirts or just a smile.

The sizing on the Kairo is WAY off and the craftmanship of this style seems abnormally poor for Birkenstock. In other brands I'm an 8M/W and in Birkenstocks I've always been a 38M (I own both Madrids and Bostons). The Kairos were easily 1/2 inch too long in the front and in the heel. Oddly the toe bar was sort of in the right place, meaning I had not to size down to a 37M as it would have cut deep into my toes. As I ordered both black and brown pairs, I know it wasn't a fluke. Disappointed as I've had my eye on this sandal all summer.

I love these shoes. Instantly out of the box comfortable with no rubbing anywhere. The only problem is they are too big. I usually wear a US 7.5 and ordered them in EU 38. Too long. I need an EU 37 but Zappos does not have any more in stock. Sending them back and really sad about it.

I'm so sad. I loved these shoes. I bought them and intended to use them as my everyday sandals for school and work all summer. I have some back and knee pain from a car accident, and needed stylish shoes that offered support - and these fit the bill. I have had them for about a week and a half and have probably worn them 5 times. I wore them out today and reapplied my spray sunscreen this afternoon, and it has ruined my shoes. Something about it stuck to the shiny coating. I wiped them with a damp cloth to remove the leftover spray (as the Birkenstocks site suggests), but it stayed put, so I carefully scrubbed them with dish soap and water and it didn't come off. Tried wiping them with rubbing alcohol and the coating and sunscreen mixed together and became a sticky mess, wearing off in some places and becoming opaque and whitish in others (this is just the upper black part). I bought these because I thought they were practical and durable. What I have done is waste a lot of money on summer sandals that can't be touched by sunscreen and were ruined by less than a week of wear. They were really comfortable, but I'm heartbroken. I've used this sunscreen for two summers and it has washed easily off of all of my other shoes. I'd shell out the extra money and get leather Birkies, These were a huge waste of the limited funds I have as a student, and disappointment. The long center piece also started to crease from walking already. I expected slightly better construction for the price, but would have been happy with just a durable material that isn't eroded by rubbing alcohol or sunscreen.

Was so excited to receive this pair of sandals until I put them on. Zappos is so great had them in my feet the day after I ordered them, only to find out that this sandals will not work for me. The top flap covers my pretty summer pedicure, and the toe separator seems rough. Also seem awkward to walk in? So back they go. I'm trying another Birky since the footbed is so comfy! Wish me luck.

I wanted to keep these, they're cute! And the footbed was so super supportive for my flat feet (a good thing)...but it was also so hard, and it felt like work to walk around the house in them. Plus the toe separator on one foot was bothering me a bit. Back these go...I'm going to try the soft footbed Birks, and a pair of Vionic sandals, and see if those are better. Love Zappos fast service and free shipping back and forth, it's like having a shoe store in your home. Terrific company!

I haven't worn Birkenstocks since I went through a '90s grunge phase, but I missed my Birks. These are so cute, and like all Birks they get more comfortable with more wear. This one looks great with sundresses. Love them!
