I love these shoes! I ordered these shoes after finding nothing that was comfortable to walk in with Plantar Fasciitis. These are a godsend, and I love the metallic silver color! I wear them with everything. They take a few weeks to break in, but once they're broken in, they are absolutely amazing! I love them, and I wish they had shoes for me to buy for winter! They were there for me when my Keens weren't doing the job!

I was so excited when I ordered these and promptly received them the next day! however, my excitement quickly turned to disappointment. The gold buckles were tarnished black all over! Upon further inspection, the gold was worn off the strap, where it connected to the footbed. These are beautiful sandals, but they are in horrible condition. This was my first bad experience with Papillio. I will definitely reorder from Zappos again. They allow very easy Returns.

My favorite shoes are Birkenstock - I have many colors and a few different styles, these are beautiful, the silver will be my new 'dressy' Birks! They're comfortable, and I'll wear them often! If you've never worn Birkenstock's, you have to break in a new pair. I wear them an hour or two at a time, a few times, this allows the cork to learn you foot, and adjust without tiring your foot too much. After a few short wears I can go all day without any discomfort. I will say that the Papillio styles seem to be easier to break in and quicker to wear out...not sure why, usually they are the more stylish looking, and at the same time thinner or more cheaply made. but I love them!

Felt shorter than other Birkenstocks I've worn. Also didn't like that silver was so shiny. Would have preferred more of a dull/pewter color.

I ordered these because I love my Birenstock Arizonas and needed a dress sandal for a wedding in Cancun. These looked dressy enough to get away with no having to wear uncomfortable heels. Sadly, they look very cheap; almost like aluminum foil. The silver color is very shiny and doesn't have a classy look to it. Paipillios in general are not as comfortable as the real Birkenstocks, but I could have worn them for a few hours had they looked better. I ended up wearing a new pair of Arizona's in taupe color. Of course with Zappos, nothing is lost, as they are fabulous about returns and thus there is no such thing as taking a risk w/a new shoe.

I'd also recommend: Birkenstock Arizonas, Fitflops
