Best Shoe Ever Made! I've tried so many brands and I always come back to my "Birkies." I have MS and my PT and 3 different docs ORDERED me to wear Birkenstocks. Also, to never go barefoot. I'm one of those thick socks in the house gals (or used to be...) Birkenstocks have no equal. The support and the comfort are incredible. And I say, "Anything this good and comfy IS beautiful!"

Brands I'd also recommend: Only Birkenstocks!

The best sandal ever - I own 6 pairs of Arizonas in different colors. They are by far the most comfortable sandal ever. I prefer the soft nubuck leather. It's so comfortable, it's better than going barefoot.

My feet feel great - My podiatrist prescribed Birkenstocks to wear instead of those flat non-supportive slippers. There are great--I wear them in and out of the house. Will probably buy an additional pair soon to keep just for slippers. My feet never felt better.

Very comfortable - Fully adjustable to fit different feet, and all the usual Birkenstock comfort and durability. The pink is just as soft and muted as in the picture--don't expect a strong color.

The most Comfortable Shoes! I bought my first pair of Arizonas in 1975, and they remain my favorite of the Birkenstock styles. Birkenstocks have been keeping my feet pain-free for almost 30 years now and I own at least 20 pairs!

Love these sandals. I purchased these sandals in a Birkenstock store in Myrtle Beach, S.C. and wore them out of the store. Total comfort! I suffer from plantar faciatis, and these sandals relieved my aching feet from the moment I put them on. Don't be afraid of the colors, they're darling. My only regret is that I didn't come to this site first. I paid full price, what a bummer.

I purchased these Birkenstocks from Zappos because they had the best price online. I wanted Birkenstocks in particular because I have plantar fasciitis and was told Birkenstocks were the best sandals to wear to not aggravate it. The process was quick and painless, I needed to get them before I went on vacation and they arrived just in time.

This is my 3rd pair of Birkenstock sandals. My shoe size is 7, for Birkenstock sandals, size 8N is perfect for me. I really liked that the sandal comes in narrow width. The two stripes provide better support for my feet; no flipping like the single stripe one that I used to have. I will only buy this style of Birkenstock sandal in the future.

Birkibuc w/standard footbed - I love Birkenstocks, but my favorites are the soft footbed in the Arizona and Boston styles. It seems this Birkibuc w/standard footbed feels a bit narrower at the back of the arch and heel area. I don't get that feeling with the soft footbed. I will probably wear out the Birkibuc's just like I wear out my more favorite choices. I have enough pairs to keep an extra in my car in case I need a quick change.

I normally wear a size 9/9.5 in most shoes, and a 9 in Birkenstock's is a bit big, so I ordered the 8. Well, the 8 was a bit small. I really wish these came in half sizes, as 8.5 would have been perfect. Also, I ordered the M, as I have bunions on both feet. The M was fine across my bunion areas, but the other strap was too loose. I guess I could have taken it to someone to have more holes put in, but that seemed a bit much for a new shoe. The materials were very nice, although this style is very clunky looking on my feet. So, they are being returned.

When these Birkenstock Arizona;s arrived, I thought I might not like them because they were stiff. I wore them for several days and they have started to soften into comfortable footwear. I have had them for only a few weeks, and the weather has been cold enough that I haven't worn them a lot yet, so the final verdict is still out. Sam

I bought these with the idea that they would be made with a 100% leather foot strap - as I knew a Birkenstock should be made and even assumed that that was the deal when I started wearing them. After a few days I noticed, they barely have any leather on them at all! There is a thin layer of that cheap leather that a bad couch is made of over felt. I am really disappointed with this cheap quality when ordering Birkenstocks.

I bought these to wear as house slippers. Having many foot problems I don't take a step without good support and have found that supportive slippers just don't hold up. They have great support and run true to size. Not the most stylish, but I was after function so they are perfect!

You really can't go wrong with a traditional style pair of Birkenstocks! Incredibly comfortable, easy to adjust for wearing both barefoot and with socks (socks with Birks is totally acceptable), and they are built to last! This is my second pair and I just can't get enough. Be sure to locate your nearest retailer to check into re-soling and having the cork re-sealed as you wear them down.

I have been buying Birkenstocks for a. few years after getting expensive orthotics for my running shoes. I have run many marathons and ultra marathons over decades. These sandals have corrected all foot pain I have experienced. The size is not accurate as they need to fit your foot without typical shoe space. Suggest you try sizes in stores before ordering online.

This is the second pair I have bought from Zappos and the shoes last a long time. I would definitely order a size smaller than what is shown on the size chart. The chart showed I should order size 42 and I had to send both the 41 and 42 back. My husband wears a size 9 shoe. The 40 is a perfect fit.

I was given a pair as a gift years ago and they lasted and I still wear them! So...I took the plunge and paid the high price and got a new pair; expensive but they fit well and last!

I bought these for my boyfriend, he is a size 8½M, and 41M is a little wider for him (should try 41N instead). The color (brushed brown) looks great on him. The drawback is the glue was not holding well, it may not be supposed to wear in water, but it is summer and it rains a lot. But I think it could be easily fixed. All in all, I am happy with my purchase, and do hope that Zappos can ship internationally, there are not only loyal customers in U.S., count me in!

This product offers comfort and a custom fit at a reasonable price. The cork bed molds to fit your individual needs. I never thought I'd be wearing such an unfashionable item, but now I'm a convert. Git it a try!
