One year on... I am a baker and I was blowing through two or three pairs of crocs a year before I found these puppies. I spend about 50-60 hours a week on poured cement and bad linoleum floors carrying 50 pound bags of flour or dough. While it did take a bit to break in the foot bed I think that they are possibly the best things to have happened to me (workwear wise) since the invention of shorts. Having fewer days with sore feet is a luxury and I appreciate that there is a company like Birki’s that cares about its customers enough to provide a shoe that is this substantial with a replaceable foot bed. The shoes themselves are in great shape and I have only had to replace the foot bed recently. A little hint, the Profi-Birki foot bed fits into this shoe and I have found them to be both more comfortable and more durable than the one that comes with it. Finally, I have to say that being able to toss these into the dishwasher or washing machine to get them sparkling clean is a huge plus. Way to go Zappos for carrying this awesome work shoe.

Found the sizing to be a little large, especially the width. I wear a 10.5 standard width dress shoe. Sole, particularly the outer portion of the small toe pad, takes some time to wear comfortably. Sole seems firm compared to my Quarks, which these replaced. Style is typical clog. Ugly but functional.

Not a pretty shoe, but a very comfortable one - I have to be honest this is not the best looking shoe in the world. However, it is one of the most comfortable shoes I've worn. When I first looked at the shoe I contemplated sending it back. I had a choice between this shoe and the Crocs Professional. I choose the Birki because it looked sturdier. Not only was it sturdier but also a heck if a lot more comfortable than the Crocs. I'm very happy with the choice I made. I would definitely buy it again.

Covered in flour and still comfortable - I am a baker in market that is housed in a warehouse-like building with a poured concrete floor. I have to say that after the Crocs I wore for the first few months these shoes were really, really hard (kind of like walking on poured concrete). After a few days of breaking in the shoes started to mold to my feet and I have to say, I haven't thought about the shoes or my feet since then. If you have the time to break them in they are worth the price. My one suggestion is to order them one size larger than the size chart says to (I'm a size 13 U.S. and I got a size 47).

Great, but needed more padding - I wear occupational clogs everyday and have tried nearly every brand. I am on my feet at least 10-20+ hours/day. I thought the overall fit was good, easy to clean, etc, I just put some nice soft arch supports in and that made all of the difference in the world. Now they are perfect.

Great work shoes - I'm on my feet for 9-13 hours a day and they are great. As a chef, these are great work shoes; they just wipe off and they are ready to go. The shoes are marked 7 and 7.5 to 8 and 8 so there is a two-size width, but they give plenty of breathing room and stay on my feet without stepping out of them, even when walking backwards.

I guess I'm different! I've worn Birkenstock's Arizona sandals and Boston clogs for years now and I've always worn the same size in them. From all of the reviews here I thought I'd be fine ordering my regular size for the Super-Birki, and maybe they'd be a little big, but that's fine. I got them and they felt about a half size smaller than all my other Birks! My toes felt like they were hitting the upper edge of the insole. So, I'm getting the next size up and hopefully they'll be fine. I really love all my Birks and I am really looking forward to these!

Wonder full shoes but are much wider than the original Birki's. I have worn my original shoes until they are tread less. But the new shoes do not fit.

Contrary to other reviewers opinions, I ordered these 'Birkis' because I thought they looked like clogs are supposed to look. I started wearing clogs (with wooden soles) back in the late '60s. These are more primal looking than the 'pimped up' ones you see today. I wondered if these expensive Croc-like clogs wouldn't be more comfortable than my $20 Crocs + $7 Dr. Scholls inserts. They came, I tried them on, I sent them back. Stick with Crocs. Of course, they were prettier than my black Crocs.

Not for everyone - I just purchased a pair of these shoes and have been pretty disappointed. The insoles are so mismatched to my feet that my feet felt bruised after wearing them for only a couple of hours. I like the actual shoe, it's easy to clean and seems durable but the comfort level leaves a lot to be desired, at least for me. On the up side, the insole is easily removeable and you can insert a different insole, but that kind of defeats the point of the whole Birkenstock ideal.

I've had my Super-Birkis for a couple years, and a few months ago large cracks developed on the bottoms of the clogs. It is impossible to wear them in any wet weather now. I am disappointed that there is not a longer warrantee for these shoes.

Not that great - These shoes are only good if you walk around all day. I work in the operating room and stand for hours at a time. They provide little comfort.

I purchased these after seeing the plentiful stellar reviews, and after having found comfort and good quality in Birkenstocks in the past. I honestly have no clue how 200 of you think these shoes are comfortable, because they have absolutely no cushioning or shock absorption. I feel as though I am walking around with two bricks as shoes; they are hard and unforgiving. After an 8 hour day at work as an RN, my heels are throbbing horribly and I can't walk comfortably (and I am 31 years old). They also don't have any ventilation so your feet get sweaty pretty qucikly. Sorry Birks, these shoes just don't work for me. I have a pair of Birkenstock clogs with the normal cork sole and suede upper that are very comfortable and supportive. Guess I'll have to stick with them.

I have had 6 pairs of Super-Birki. None have fit as poorly as the new pair I am returning. The insole was too short by 3/4 inch. The arch was too high. My feet slipped out the back. I checked all the numbers with my current Super-Birkis and they were identical. What has happened to Birki's?

Very stiff plastic feel to the shoe and very uncomfortable. Hard inner sole. Can't imagine how these could be good for your feet, particularly if you're standing all day as most chefs do.

I can't believe how many people like these - I wore these for my 12 hour shift at the hospital and it was awful. The floor is comfier than these shoes. My feet actually swelled up and the next day I could barely fit these into my well-worn casual clogs. So painful. My feet felt bruised. To put the truth out there, the insole is a piece of cardboard with a foot imprint on it. Not my idea of support. That is how the shoe is constructed: plastic shell + cardboard insert. Now you can decide if you want to buy these fully informed.

As a nurse I buy shoes for comfort and longevity. I bought a second pair for gardening and camping. They initially feel hard and uncomfortable. I continued to wear them around the house and found they conform to your feet and are sooo comfortable. I love these shoes.

This is my second pair of Birkis. I'd worn out my first pair. I wear them with heavy ragg socks for walking our dogs. They are super in wet weather, as long as really deep puddles are avoided, and even in shallow snow. My feet wouldn't tolerate them without socks, but my husband wears his without sometimes in summer and is fine. We both love them. My new blue ones feel a bit classier than my old green ones, I'll admit. Different vendors seem to offer different colors, which is just weird. But I digress. These are great knock-about clogs, easy to get into and out of. I can't imagine life without them.

This will be my 3rd pair of these. I work in kitchens, so I'm on my feet a lot and sometimes experience wet and slippery floors. They are great at being non-slip. They are very comfortable even after 14hrs on my feet. They are easy to clean, just take out the insole and wash the shoe. to top it off, they last me about 3 years of heavy wear. Worth every penny.

Hmmm, like another reviewer I have squared-off toes, and flat feet into the bargain. I was a little apprehensive at first because Birkenstock shoe tend to have high arch support. But these shoes were comfortable immediately, my feet indicated a good fit after several hours of walking, and I expect them to stay that way. Every foot is different, but these work for me.

I bought these to replace my 25 year old Birkenstock garden clogs which had finally started to crack. These are wonderful garden shoes! I keep them by the back door so I can slip out of my regular shoes and into my Birki "garden shoes". They are comfortable. The outside is hard enough to protect my feet if I drop pruned branches. They provide great support. I can wear them into a rain wet back yard to put out bird feed or make a trip to the compost pile and I am totally dry when I return. I even washed them off and wore them with black slacks to an evening affair where I knew I would be standing a long time.

I have bought two pair of super burkis because I am so pleased with them. One pair is for outside work and the other for in the house. They do not slip when mowing the lawn on an incline. They hold my foot in a stable position.
