Great shoe. Fit my narrow foot like a dream. I usually can't wear Birki's because of the width. Then my long middle toe is just not made for the way the end of the Birki shoe has been made. Whatever Birki has changed, this shoe works and is a keeper. The floral pattern is really cute too. Yay Birki!

Love! I've only had these for a few days but I can tell they will be on my feet nearly every day this spring/summer. I needed a slide-on sandal (I have 3 kids...who's got time to put on strappy shoes after wrangling 3 squirts into theirs?) that was more supportive than a rubber flip-flop. I knew I'd love this shoe as I use to have a pair of Birks that I loved. Great support, great comfort, great looks. They are a teensy bit heavier than I was expecting, but I attribute that to me wearing cheap rubber flip flops the last couple summers. Sizing is perfect. For years I've purchased size 8 shoes and was recently measured and told I should be wearing 7.5. Funny how wearing the proper shoe size these days is also increasing my comfort!

Papillio Tabora - Very comfortable around the big toe in the Birko-Flor, but not as comfortable in the leather. The suede was comfortable, but the Birko-Flor was the best. Papillio shoes run the same as Birkenstocks (order one size smaller than the size chart indicates)

Papillo's Tabora is a well-designed style - The Tabora style by Papillo provides two nice features - the front straps that go between the big and second toes (and at least for me are perfectly comfortable), and buckle strap behind the front part keeps the sandal from slipping and can be adjusted. I really like the overall look and appearance of Papillo's Tabora sandals.

Brands I'd also recommend: Any and all Papillo sandals!

Blue/green - Well this turned out great. The sandal is comfortable and cute. Depending on the light, it looks all blue or all green. Glad I bought it. No break in period needed. Wore it on vacation walking the hills of San Francisco.

The BEST shoes you'll ever buy - Birks are the best. When you are wearing them it's like you have nothing on your feet, because you’re in total comfort. I recommend them to everyone. They are pricey, but worth every penny!

Cute, cute, cute! Still breaking them in. Expect that the comfort level will improve with time and wear. Mixed bags of colors go with anything and everything!

Colorful - As with every Birkenstock, this sandal is very comfortable. If you're ordering the Aqua Sun Day color--it's alot brighter than the picture shows. I thought the color looked like "water color" in the picture, but it actually pretty bright--cute, but bright.

Yes, Birkenstocks CAN be beautiful! The China print is even better than it looked on the website. I received many compliments the first day I wore them. Match them with khaki capris or shorts and you'll be stylin.' Fit is superb as always, but it is the first narrow width shoe I've ever worn-- normally I need a wide or C width. My other Birks are mediums. Thanks to Birkenstock for the exciting new prints and colors this year!

Great Sandals! I am a teacher and on my feet most of the day. I joke that I would be better off without the right side of my body for various reasons-- including back, hip and foot aches. I decided to try Birks. I recently worked a temporary job on my feet for most of 8 hours on a hard floor. The only thing I wore were Birks and I know I felt better at the end of the day and the beginning of the next day than I would have wearing any other shoes. I have received many compliments on how cute these are! The front toe strap is a little loose, so I had to adjust the arch strap to fit. Otherwise, these are great!!

love, love, love - love these shoes, they are so cute. I never really liked the look of Birkenstock until I discovered the cute prints that are available. They take a solid color shirt and denim capris and add a little "UMPH."

Best Sandal for every day! This sandal is not only good looking, it's comfortable! Many colors to choose from. I own them all. One had a small cut on strap, so I sent back and they replaced them. They do run a little larger, so I would opt for the narrow size when available. Can't wait for next summer when I can wear them all again!

Brands I'd also recommend: not sure

I am forever looking for cute "feminine" good sandals. A tall order in my size. I tried the "Arizona" birks before and they were so uncomfortable, I gave them to my daughter to break in...she kept them. No loss. But these sandals fit the bill. They are feminine with their bright colors and pretty flowers. The cork sole is stiff as I am breaking it in, but not at all uncomfortable to wear. I have arthritis developing in my right foot and was looking for a sandal that could handle the orthotics I have to get. I think this sandal will work. My only concern: the colors were faded on the left shoe. But it didn't bother me enough to send back. :)

Sandal review - I'm still working on breaking my Tabora Birkies in (about 5 days so far). I liked the toe grip when I was climbing a steep hill. Uppers are loose fitting and my feet are somewhat wide.

Birkenstock Tabora China Blossom - I like the unique pattern on this shoe. It reminds me of a cover of a Joni Mitchell album my parents have. The shoes are big and clunky, and do not flatter my big feet, but they are very comfortable. And that was the point, comfort!

Cute, but fit weird. These shoes are cute as a button, but when I tried to wear them, I kept tripping over my own feet! When I tightened the strap the upper half (toe portion) was too loose and slid around (I bought the narrow style). If I loosened the strap my foot just did not stay comfortably put. It's unfortunate though, because these are really great sandals! Maybe if they tightened the Birko-flor on the upper half, especially on the narrow styles.
