Love this shoe. As always, Birkenstock's are super comfy. Be sure to buy 1/2 size down though; I had to return my 1st pair.

I bought these for an upcoming vacation, so I have not worn them much yet. But, being Birkenstocks, I anticipate a long, comfortable relationship. I think this version is sleek and stylish, and I love the silver color. Kind of a non-neutral neutral.

Love this sandal!! Comfy and cute, can be dressed up (to a point) and dressed down. I was glad that the "gold" color was subtle and not in-your-face gold and sparkles. I wear them all summer long!

I really like these Birks. This is the 2nd pair I\'ve bought in this style. Look nice on, not the typical bulk of other Birks.

I have four pairs of these shoes. For someone who cares about fashion and comfort they are perfect. I also am able to get them in a narrow.

I absolutely love these Birkenstocks and so I have given them five stars! The narrow width is much less bulky, yet they are sturdy and supportive. This is a big improvement on an old favorite!

I love these Birks. They are just as comfortable as I expect, but look very dressy with the patent leather and thin straps. Much less "hippy" than my other Birkenstocks. I get compliments every time I wear these.

These are the best sandals I've ever worn - way better than the custom orthotic sandals I bought a long time ago. They're comfortable right out of the box. I had no break-in period as others did. They feel like they were made for my feet. My feet are a little wider than average, and the fact that these have two adjustable straps work well. I was hesitant to wear sandals without a strap across my heel, but these are fine. I am now a Birkenstock convert!

This is the perfect replacement for my six year old Florida sandal! The buckles allow adjustment for my wide forefoot and my high instep! The style is a little sleeker than most Birki sandals and the color, Onyx, is a actually a dark pewter with a little shimmer, not a flat gray.

Very nice look and feel. It's hard to see it in the photos, but this is black patent leather. It looks great. The Birkenstocks really help my plantar fasciitis. I also really love Zappos. I first ordered size 39, as I typically take a true size 8, however, it was too big. I was able to send back, and get size 38, with no shipping charges/problems. Thanks Zappos and Birkenstock!

These sandals were comfortable out of the box. I stand in them all day at work and my feet never hurt or feel uncomfortable. If you prefer the look of leather Birks but want to save and get birko-flor material, the golden color looks and feels much like a leather. The other birko-flor colors were too plastic-y for my taste. Definitely worth the investment.

I recently had a flare-up of plantar fasciitis, with a new wrinkle, concurrent pain in the first metatarsal joint of the second toe. This time I followed advice from a friend who is a therapist and bought Birkenstock. The toe bar is especially helpful for the kind of pain I'm experiencing this time. I have Birkenstock Arizonas and Bostons that I wear at home and two pairs of Mayari sandals for work. For daily activities, they give me total pain relief. I gave away 4 garbage bags of shoes, so I won't be tempted to wear "cute" shoes! The Mayaris are quite stylish with a good pedicure. I'm still looking for a fitness shoe for a walking long distances and a standing shoe for hours of cooking on slate floors.

from Oklahoma City, OK

I got this shoe before I went to Montreal for vacation. I broke them in by walking around the city and they were so comfortable even in the July heat. I get so many complements on them. They are light on the feet and go with everything such as shorts and over skinny jeans. They're a great shoe for concerts too.

This is possibly the cutest and most comfortable pair of sandals I own. I used to have a pair of the original 3-strap Birkenstock sandals, which were comfortable, but made my feet look like canal boats. These have a very sweet feminine look, and I've gotten a lot of positive comments and surprise from people when they find out they're Birkenstock! I recommend them highly!

I am delighted with my new Birkenstock Mayari sandals. When they arrived today, I put them on and have had them on all day without needing a break-in time. Fit perfectly, very comfortable and I love the style. Thought maybe the toe loop would be a problem, but it's soft and pliable so it doesn't rub even with wearing toe rings! I got the Onyx color that will go with lots of skirts and jeans. Will definitely order another pair from Zappos as soon as they get more in in my size. Ordering was so easy. Thanks, Zappos Team!

Brands I'd also recommend: Clarks, but I love these Birkenstocks.

For me it's instant comfort. No breaking in whatsoever. These are my second pair of Mayaris. I will likely purchase a third as they are a perfect fit for my feet didn't even have a problem with the toe thong. People admire the color. The Onyx color can be worn with navy, blue or black and they all match. I have very high arches and the arch support is great.

These are my 3rd pair of Birkenstocks and I love them. I have very wide feet and these fit great and they are much cuter than the traditional Birkenstock sandals. The color is more metallic than I thought it would be, but I\\\\\\\'m really liking it. Great shoe!

I had back surgery 2 months ago and am starting to walk around normally. My husband has been on my case about buying some Birkenstock shoes because he has loved them for over 25 years. This was my first pair. I felt like I was walking tall and my back did not hurt. When I put on my other sandals, my back and legs hurt. I have bought two more pairs since these.

Shinier than expected, guess I missed the patent leather part. Once I got used to that really love them! Can be dressy or casual, they work with both. Love the style!

The Mayari's are so comfortable from the time you put them on. The patent is fun and it didn't look like a true (shiny) patent online, but it is. I made a mistake and ordered one size too big, forgetting that I wear a 40 in closed shoes and a 39 in sandals. These are great for wide feet. I am likely to order another pair of the same style in the future. Took less than 24 hours to deliver with one day shipping!
