These are my absolute favorite pair of sandals. I wore them almost every day for two months travelling all over Europe! The sole really conforms to the shape of your foot, and they feel very supportive. I love this style, as it's a more feminine take on the original Arizona style. I chose this style over the Gizeh because I didn't like the idea of having the "thong" part of the sandal be made of plastic, and those seem more like flip-flops. The Golden-Brown Birko-Flor color has a pretty golden sheen to the natural brown, but the metallic glittery is not flashy or anything. I got a size 36 Narrow, which is half a size smaller than my regular shoe size (US Women's 6). I also chose the narrow size because the style of Birks are a bit wider and I do have slim feet, though I don't normally buy other shoes in a narrow width. Overall, I highly recommend this great, comfortable sandal for summer that's perfect for walking and travelling!

After being diagnosed with tendonitis in my ankle, the doctor told me no more flat shoes. With my flat feet and bunions, I wasn't a fan of them anyhow. So, at his suggestion, I decided to give Birkenstocks a try. I was looking for a sandal in something other than brown or black. Out of the box, these were cute. On my feet, not so much. I'm a B width, but there's something about the way the footbed is cut, that causes it to cut into the bottom of my foot. Back you go. I should have gone with my first choice, the FitFlop Frou in cosmic purple.

I love these sandals! They are the first Birkenstocks I have ever owned and I have ordered more. I have plantar fasciitis and these have helped me get much better. I like the secure footing they give.

Love this shoe! This was my first pair of Birkenstocks. Ordered size 9 (my usual size) but had to return for and 8. So easy! And it took about a week to break them in good, but now they are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. Just ordered another a pair of the Madrid style. Cannot wait for them to arrive...tomorrow! Love Zappos.com. Love!

Bought in silver in narrow. Arrived lightning fast. Put on my feet and can't force myself to take them off. My feet are in love. They look much cuter on than I was expecting. Very pleased! I ordered the same size as a pair of Naot shoes I have and the fit is perfect. Thank you Zappos for offering narrows and such cute color options!

Great sandal! The patent leather makes it a little more dressy than other Birkenstocks. I would recommend ordering a 1/2 size smaller. I had to send back my first pair b/c they were too big.

All flip-flop/thong sandals hurt my feet, so I did not have high hopes when I ordered the Mayari sandals. I wanted a pair of black patent sandals for the summer (and Zappos is so great about returns) that I figured I did not have much to lose. I was shocked when I put these on and they did not irritate the space between my first two toes. It is going to take a little while to break these in as they do not have the soft footbed, but I am absolutely thrilled with this style! I always take a 40N in Birkenstocks and these fit perfectly. I have thin feet with high arches and long toes and these sandals actually make my feet look feminine. I am thinking about getting a second pair in a different color. Thank you, Zappos!

This shoe has the great arch support and comfort that all classic Birkenstocks have. What's nice is that the straps are sleeker than the more clunky styles, such as the Arizona. You get all of the support with a minimal amount of shoe. The sandals are very cool in the hot summer. The straps wrapping around my big toe took a little getting used to, but they aren't at all constrictive.

I love this shoe! Beautiful color. I have a very narrow foot and was concerned about how wide Birkenstocks were, but the narrow width fits my foot well. I ordered down a size. I normally wear a 6 1/2 - 7 sandal. The 37 is perfect. So comfortable!

I bought these to wear while walking all day on vacation and they did not disappoint. They are very comfy although the large arch support takes a bit of getting used to. These shoes are true to size or maybe slightly big.

It finally got warm enough to be wearing these around! They are very comfortable - Birkenstocks have a good amount of arch support for me. The straps are snug but comfortable which makes for comfortable walking. Once in a while the strap between the toes digs a little, but it is very minor, and probably because my toes are too short. I got these in the onyx color, and I was a little surprised when I saw them. I thought the photo made them look more blue than they are. They are actually a silvery grey color which is very pretty. I am very pleased with these!

The day they arrived I packed them in my suitcase and left on vacation. Once I arrived at my destination, I went for a nice long walk! Great comfortable fit - no blisters or sore feet. I can only wear Birkenstocks as they have great arch support. These feel great on my feet.

These are comfortable, really well made shoes! The arch is very supportive. I have plantar fascia with one foot and the shoes seem to make it easier to be on my feet during the day. The style is a little funky but having a German background, I'm OK with that!

The narrow Birkies are fabulous. The Mayari style gives me such a good fit for my long, narrow foot with high arch, that they are my go everywhere shoes. I can wear them with fairly snug straps, and they are so comfortable and stable that I have replaced all of my expensive golf shoes. Look great with capris for the mall. The secret if the two adjustable straps.

Brands I'd also recommend: used to buy Ecco, but Birkies are better!

My podiatrist recommended Birkenstocks to relieve the pain I had from plantar fascia, and they work! He suggested wearing them approximately 70% of the time. (I wear mine almost all of my waking hours.) I now have no heel or arch pain. The uppers are personal choice of course, but it's the sole bed with the great arch that does the work. Be sure to get a proper fit, then start by wearing them an hour or two a day for the first week or two. After that you won't want to wear any other shoe. The only difficulty for the sandals is cold weather.

I have feet problems and not really supposed to wear sandals. But I saw the arch support and decided to give them a try. They are so comfortable and do not cause me pain - now I can wear sandals.

I have been wearing Birkenstocks for my whole adult life. When I used to teach, I loved that I could be on my feet all day and never be sore. Now that I am a mom, I love that I can slip them on quickly and be comfortable chasing my kids around all day. I was looking for a pair of more feminine looking sandals to replace the New York pair that I have had since college. The Mephisto Helen shoes were recommended to me by a friend, but when I bought them and tried them on, my feet were too wide for the tops. My toes were spilling out over the footbed and it just looked terrible. I also bought the Birkenstock Gizeh but had to return those as well because the rounded leather part above the thong extended out on top of my big toenail and just looked silly. The width of the Birkenstock was perfect, though. So I was happy to find the Mayari because I felt like they were a great combination of smaller, thinner, more feminine buckles and straps, with a wider footbed. I guess I never realized how wide my feet are. I normally wear medium width shoes, but for some reason my toes are happy spreading out in these. If your feet are narrow, you probably would have to make the straps very tight. I do not know how comfortable that would be, or if it would compromise the look of the shoes. These are super comfortable for me and I do not think I have taken them off all day. I love the Golden-Brown Birko Flor color. It is just a little fancier than brown leather flip-flops. I am really happy with these and I know now that I will always own a pair of Birkenstocks!

I have bunions on my feet from wearing heels all my life, so find it very hard to find sandals which do not hurt my feet. These, however, feel very good.

My fourth pair of Birkenstocks! I have issues with my feet and need all the arch support that I can get when I don't wear close-toed shoes, and these are great and comfortable. I wear them to work where I stand all day and afterward I am not sore. Love these shoes!

After surgery on my ankle, I couldn't find any shoes that were comfortable for walking long distances (I live in NYC, so I walk at least a few miles each day). These have been the only shoes that are supportive and comfortable enough for me. When my ankle starts to hurt from other (non-supportive) shoes, I come back to these and it feels so much better. Now I'm looking for my next pair of Birkenstock's to last me into the fall.
