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 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!

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.

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.

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 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.

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!

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!

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!

from New York City

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.

Great purchase! I just had my hip replaced and I needed sturdy, supportive, and comfortable shoes. I prefer slip-on versus sneakers so I opted for these. I'm glad I did. I find them perfect for the reasons I just stated. Highly recommend.

I've always wanted to try Birkenstocks, but have a narrow foot so thought it wasn't meant to be. So when I saw these in narrow, I had to have them. Once I figured out how to wriggle my foot into the right spot, I liked them. They are very stiff so I can't wear them all day or out for major walking, but they are great for around the house. The color is nice, a dark gray with blue tint.
