I love these slides! It's been a full year since my purchase and they go with everything (got mine in black). These have turned me on to Birkenstock shoes and I can't wait to get a pair for winter! Also, much more modern style than the usual Birkenstock. I would recommend them to anyone with plantar fasciitis (heel spurs), as the patented heel cup allows for all four arches of the foot to be supported. I cannot say enough good things about these shoes! If you're thinking about it, buy them! You (hopefully) won't regret it!

I have plantar fascitis, high arch, and narrow feet. The arch on this shoe was not supportive enough for me. I usually wear size 8.5 narrow - this shoe fits short for longer toes, and longer at heel end.Awkward feeling and looking. Although you can tighten the straps, the bed of the shoe is still wide and shoe looks clunky on my narrow feet. Really wanted these to work, but, alas, they didn't.

This was my first Birkenstock purchase in 14 years. I had no idea they had updated their styles! These are cute...comfortable and a good price. I had to purchase a size 9 narrow and they ended up fitting just fine (I am normally a 8.5 regular).

These are very cute, especially for Birkenstocks. Usually they are quite masculine, but the color and style of these is quite feminine. I love how comfortable Birkenstocks are!

I have a narrow foot and these are the best, long-lasting shoes that also come in very cute colors. I live in the Southwest so I wear them most every day. They are well worth it! You should definitely buy a pair!

I have two pairs of the Madrid...the onyx and the silver. Onyx is good all around color with denim, black, gray, even khaki. I wear silver when I want to jazz it up a bit. I love them. Very comfortable. Nice casual sandal that looks much more feminine that the usual Birkenstock, kind of retro like the Dr. Scholl's exercise sandal from the '70s. Runs a bit large, had to size down from usual 39 to a 38.

I have several pairs of the Madrid style, and about fifteen pairs of Birkenstocks in different styles. The Madrid is my favorite. They are cute, comfy and can be worn with almost everything. The Madrid is true to size. Try this one, I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Sleek and comfy! Runs big - First, I wish I had read the reviews before I ordered (duh!) because these do run a size too big. I always wear a 7.5 wide or even an 8 wide, and the 38 was way too big. The 37 is a great fit, with room for my feet and toes spread out a little. And, I've received a lot of compliments on these already. Several people have said, "THOSE are Birkenstocks?" The black patent really spiffs them up.

I'm pregnant with severely swollen feet, and needed a pair of shoes to wear at work (flip flops weren't cutting it). I got the black patent leather since I felt like they would look a little dressier... and they're pretty nice! The strap completely accommodates my swollen feet, and the arch support is nice. They do flop a bit - so going down stairs can be a loud endeavor. Still - it's a small price to pay for comfort & style.

These sandals are absolutely the BEST...cute comfortable, can be worn with almost anything, and what's not to like about red patent leather. I just love mine and wear them almost all the time. I do think that European shoes run a little wider as well as a little bigger than the shoes I usually buy so you might think about ordering a size smaller than usual as well as a narrow rather than a medium. With Zappos incredible service the shoes that you order generally arrive the next business day and exchanges are a breeze. Zappos is without a doubt my favorite web-site.

These Birks are exactly what they look like on the website, or actually better looking in person. They fit nicely and are so comfortable and makes your feet look nice at the same time. I am very happy with them and the colors are amazing!

I have worn Birkenstocks for years now. I do not wear or buy any other sandal. They might seem pricey but once you put them on your feet you will never want to take them off! They last for years! I walk in mine 5 miles everyday during the spring, summer and fall, winter I must wear sneakers in PA. Don't need sneakers as they have so much more support for your feet than the high price sneakers do. The quality is great; you can't go wrong with Birkenstock. I own 14 pairs, and they are just like new and I wear them everyday. Have most styles they come in. Money well spent on these. Will not buy anything else.

On this site looking for a new pair. Mine have worn out and have a hole in the heel. I will miss them and will have to get a new pair. They have molded to my feet and after a year they feel wonderful. They are the only shoes I can wear for long periods of time with comfort.

I can't say how much I love this shoe. I have plantar fasciitis and Birkenstocks were recommended by my podiatrist. Not wanting to invest a huge amount of money I bought this show in the patent brown color. I then bought another in the gold. I liked the gold band even better as it had more give. I have a narrow foot and the narrow was perfect for me. I plan on investing more in Birkenstocks since I am on my feet a great deal for work. Wonderful shoe.

Love these slip ons. After a hot summer in Austin wearing flip flops every day, my feet could not handle anything more between my toes. These are heaven...and the grayish, bluish, silveryish color goes with jeans, black pants, or white. The color is kind of metallic without being over the top. Thanks Zappos!

The Madrid slip on was a perfect fit for me - not too narrow or wide. Reasonable price and love the black patent and enjoyed free shipping. And would buy from Zappos again.

These are awesome, but they are a full size bigger than posted. I am a 6½ and I am swimming in the 37. I am ordering a 36 now. The onyx color is gorgeous. And they are not too flip-floppy. It does not smack too much when I walk and is very comfortable.

I am very happy with my Birkenstock Madrid slip-on shoes. They are easy to put on. I have bad knees I can't lift my left knee. They slide on easily and are comfortable to wear.

I love these Birks. I bought them as an alternative to flip-flops, for a cute, summer casual sandal. They've taken a little longer to break in than my previous Birks have, but they're still super comfy. The pewter color is great! It goes with everything, but is still a unique color.

Have worn Birks for many years, these are a very comfortable sandal, they do not move around on your foot; however, they do run a size larger though. I had to exchange them for a smaller size, which was no problem for Zappos. I have been shopping with them for more years than I care to remember and I have never had a problem with them ever. More companies should take a page from their book.

I’ve been living life in flip flops for the past couple of months and my knees and back are paying the price. I got this new pair of Birks to get a bit more arch support, but still keep the style and simplicity of my flip flops. The color (which I thought was a weathered brown in the picture) is actually a somewhat sparkly golden hue. I probably would have gone with another color, but they’re comfy and do the job: happy feet, knees, back.

Excellent shoes!! I bought them because a friend of mine had them and I thought they looked nice so I got them in red patent. I didn\'t like them that much, I returned them, having to experience the EXCELLENT, USER-FRIENDLY, return policy of zappos and I got the golden-brown ones. They are extremely comfortable, it feels like they\'re massaging my feet!! And I am not a sandals person, I always considered them un-elegant but these ones look pretty! Got them half size smaller than my usual size and they fit wonderfully.
