I've had these for about a month now and I love them! I have been wearing them almost all the time for the past month and I noticed that the protective covering on the cork is starting to peel away. I would recommend getting the cork protection stuff from the birkenstock website. The Birko-Flor is holding up great!! still looks just like the day I got them, so if you are super into the old leather look, I wouldn't recommend the Birko-Flor. It's very strong material though and comfortable as well. Took about a week of wear for them to break in and feel perfect for my foot. At first they kind of slipped off and were rigid, but the more you wear them around the faster and more comfortable they will feel. Great shoe! Highly recommend!

Roughly 6 months ago I decided to invest in a pair of standard Birkenstock Leather Arizona Sandals, as they came highly recommended by a friend. Being a resident of Michigan I rarely got the opportunity to wear the sandals until this past month. The sole of the shoes wore out so quickly that when I took the shoes to a repair center they said since the wear had reached the cork they were completely unrepairable. Comparably I have purchased similar styled sandals from Wal-Mart for roughly $5, these shoes last nearly a year of continuous heavy use. For this price I expect far more out of a pair of sandals. Save your time and money, the quality of these sandals is far below what I expected.

Ordered these shoes for my 15 year old son who has grown up with Birkenstocks. They were true to their reputation and size info was helpful in figuring out what to get. Fast shipping! Thanks!

After seeing a podiatrist and being fit for custom orthotics, I knew I should be careful about what sandals I was going to get. I did some research about which were best for high arches and Birkenstocks were the #1 brand. I'd never had them before but when these were on sale, I picked them up. Wonderful! It took less than a day to break them in but even doing that, they were still incredibly comfortable. I'm a 9 2E normally and the 40 in regular width fit perfect.

I love my Birkenstock sandals. The arch support is excellent. I need a wider toe box so I love the fit.

Great shoes that last and last. My son's pair is going strong after several years and after my flip flops fell apart, I decided not to borrow his any longer and get my own.

I have been wearing Birkenstock sandals for the last 15 years. I use a pair of slip-ons as house slippers. I needed a new pair urgently. I received the shoes very quickly and in good condition. Very satisfied with the service.

I love Zappos! First, your shoes come fast, second, they take returns fast, and third, they remember that you have a credit (even if you forgot, as in my case). You just cannot go wrong with Zappos! Oh, and I love my Birkenstock and probably third pair I have owned.

Great shoe, great service - I've been a Birk owner for years, and my previous pair had finally bitten the dust. Looking around to replace them, I decided to give Zappos a try. I needed the replacement ASAP, so I was disappointed they didn't have my current style (Florida) in stock in my size. I decided to give the Arizona another whirl (it was the first style I owned). The fit is great...can't beat Birks for comfort. And free overnight shipping was awesome! I'll definitely use Zappos again.

A great bargain - I have always been a Birkenstock fan and recently my dog chewed up the most recent pair. I wanted a new pair and noticed this Birko-Flor option for such a reasonable price. I was worried they wouldn't look as good as the regular leather, but when they got here I was pleasantly surprised. They look every bit as nice as the higher priced model. I would definitely recommend them.

Freedom from socks - It took me a while to train my feet to wear Birkenstocks again. The arch support is pretty severe, but I am now used to it, and the shoes fit like a second skin. I could do with a higher heel.

Great Shoe...but ran much larger than expected. I love Birkes... but this one ran a whole size too large for me. But I'll still try them again.

Awesome sandal - Super comfortable shoe. It’s my first pair and I’m a complete convert. I ordered a half size larger and they fit perfectly. I wish they made a flip-flop style sandal. I’d be set!

Birko-Flor's are a dream! This pair of shoes has been my best experience so far. I have a bad back and these have helped my pain as well as given my airy support. The straps are very comfortable and I'm glad to support non-leather uppers. Great-fantastic shoe! Would recommend to anyone.
