I love these shoes! Not only are they stylish but their comfortable, every time I wear these sandals I always get compliments. I going to buy another pair in a different style for the summer if it ever gets here.

I was looking for a cute, yet comfortable sandal that offered arch support. I had tried another brand that is well known specifically for its arch support, but I found that sandal to be uncomfortable. I think this sandal is a great compromise. I have a low arch but I can wear these all day. I think after a few more wears they will be perfect!

This is my first Birkenstock purchase. I have plantar faciitis and was told that Birkenstock shoes would be a great choice for my condition. So far, whenever I wear them, my feet feel fine although it is a challenge to get used to them. However, after repeated wearings, I notice that my feet do feel a little better after each wearing. Additionally, I actually do like the style and am considering purchasing the Birkenstock Dundee boot in the future.

These sandals are super cute. I got the pink and they are a little bit darker pink than they look in the picture, but still very cute. They do run a little bit large, maybe 1/2 to full size big.

It's a great choice for me , I love the colour .it runs a bit large so I ordered 7.5 instead of 8. When wearing it the first time , it hurt a little bite from the front but still I like it a lot.

I absolutely love Zappos! I ordered the Birks and 3 days later, they were in right before my vacation. No problems and they're so comfy. I'm a happy girl. :)

I sought out walking sandals for a one week trip to NYC. I researched reviews and decided to purchase these after several recommendations. I could not have chosen a better pair of shoes! These are my absolute favorite now- and I keep getting compliments & surprised reactions that they are "Birkenstock's"?!

Decided to be kinder to my feet and bought my first pair of Birkenstocks to help with a recurrent foot problem stemming from being very flat footed. Well, not only has my problem improved significantly but I think these patent leather sandals are really cute and feminine! I find them to be incredibly comfortable. I've walked in them for hours on end and my feet didn't hurt a bit. I have to admit that I've always thought of Birkenstocks as looking comfortable but unattractive so I'm happy that they're branching out a bit with patent leather. One note of caution is that they definitely run big. I sent back the first pair I ordered and got a smaller size because they were too big.

I needed to get a pair of comfortable, yet stylish looking sandals, for an upcoming trip to help with my plantar fasciitis. Well, I received my sandals today and I immediately tried them on and went for a long walk to break them in. They felt absolutely comfortable and the arch support is excellent! I read some of the comments and I ordered them one size smaller, I am an 8, but I went with the 38 and the fit was perfect! I am glad that I listened. I have thin ankles, but they do not feel loose around them at all. I have a feeling that these will become my go to shoes from now on, and I am ready for my trip. I cannot wait to order more. Oh, and Zappos' fast delivery saved my hide, so kudos to you all at Zappos land!

This is my second pair of these. They are fabulous in every way, especially if you have cranky feet - I'm a runner, so comfort is most important to me. Big shout out to the Titanium colored ones - I have a pair of the silver Gizeh sandals, and thought the Titanium would be too similar. It is not, and these shoes have turned out to be incredibly versatile. It's basically a neutral, and looks good with almost everything. It's my go-to shoe these days and I highly recommend them, and that color, in particular.

Amazing comfort especially for a person suffering from plantar fasciitis. The arch support is fantastic and let's me continue my active lifestyle. Plus, the great customer service from Zappos was phenomenal. I'm truly happy with my transaction!

The color is a bit more khaki/olive than silver. Lovely neutral metallic. This shoe has saved my back and knees from the daily wear and tear of scooting around the classroom. Even my doctor said, "you're wearing the right shoes." Thanks Zappos for making them affordable!

Great purchase! I was hesitant to order because I was unsure of the size. It's been 15 yrs since I had my last pair. I am a true 7 with a narrow width, so I got the 37 and it fits perfect. The order was fast on delivery, as always with Zappos!

So glad I bought these! Helping me recover after foot surgery. I had my big toe joint fused, and I can drive and walk with these. Leather strap is very comfortable, strap is not bothering my incision, arch support is wonderful and they are wide enough for a puffy post-surgery foot. Would be lost without them! Worth every penny!

I have gotten a lot of compliments on the look of this shoe. I recently had foot surgery and can only tolerate Birkenstocks and tennis shoes. I did buy one size up after reading reviews about the toe piece being uncomfortable. This seemed to do the trick though I do often end up with a bruise between my first two toes from it but only because is exactly at the surgical site. The footbeds are very comfortable and provide lots of support. Birks are one of the few shoes my podiatrist recommends and with good reason. I have not had any issues with the upper material being synthetic as some reviewers have complained about. There is so little material there that I don't see how breathability could really be an issue.

FYI. Graceful Licorice is NOT LEATHER. It doesn't specifically list one way or the other, but it is the same fabric as all the others. Fantastic looking shoe, but I need leather for the wear and tear.

These sandals are fantastic! I have a variety of foot issues - fallen arches, bursitis, tailor's bunions - which means I should really wear my orthotic inserts as much as possible, however, I just can't wear shoes in the summer - gotta have sandals! These are so comfortable, right out of the box. I was worried the straps would rub on the edges or some other nonsense - no way! These were comfortable for all day wear, right away. Also, a few weeks ago, I was at the orthopedist for tendinitis, and he put me in a walking boot on my left foot. I was of course worried about what to wear on my other foot. And he said these sandals were just perfect! Yep, Birkenstocks got the thumbs up from my foot/ankle doctor. I can't wait to buy another pair - just have to figure out what color I want!

I went with the consensus and ordered a half size down. I'm typically a 8.0 but I run a little below in some brands. So glad I went with the 7-7.5 and they fit perfectly. My arch lines up with the arch support and my toes meet the edge just right. These are ridiculously comfortable! Embrace the slightly dorky orthopedic look- they feel like walking on a well supported cloud.

Love these sandals! They were a bit stiff the first time on, but after that, they have conformed perfectly to my foot and are my go to sandal. They are super cute dressed up or down and I am looking forward to wearing them for many summers to come! Best part of Birkenstocks is there are Birkenstock repair shops that will replace the cork for you for around $50 - you will basically get a new shoe for just $50! Zappos recommended I get a larger European size than I actually wear, so I recommend sizing down one from what they recommend to ensure a proper fit.

Not as silvery in color (more gold) as the picture looks (and as the name Titanium implies?), at least on my monitor. I don't like gold especially so I'm returning them. But they are very comfortable. I have an old pair of closed-toe Birks that are still going strong and I can even wear them barefoot. Love them.
