I bought these cute Girzeh Sandal's because I saw a friend wearing them and thought they were the cutest shoes I ever saw! I bought the light pink color because they were on sale. I had read the reviews but thought I would give them a chance.
Like all Birkenstock shoes they take a while for your foot to get use to them, with the toe thing that gave an additional cause for pain (or discomfort). The first couple days I wore them I made sure I packed an additional pair of shoes, after getting past the initial pain (about 15 min) I found each day I could keep them on longer. I walk about 2 1/2miles to work each day. When putting them on in the morning they still hurt but only for about a minute. Now I can wear them all day with no discomfort after the first minute or so. I do recommend these shoes, but you must get through that first week or so.
I never knew I could love Birkenstocks this much! I think these are much more stylish than the shoes I used to associate with this brand. I've gotten a ton of compliments on them. They are my first pair and they are so comfortable! For me, it took about 3 days to get used to the strap between the toes. Just a little mild discomfort but now they feel great. I also like how the strap goes so far back to the ankle - making them much more comfortable than your typical pair of flip flops. And the buckle makes them more adjustable for my narrow feet.
I will be completely honest: I love these shoes. My feet are a little wide and these fit my feet perfectly. Not only do I love the style, I've been receiving compliments on the style of my Birkenstock's too so I know I've made a wise purchase. I'm an avid Birkenstock user for all of my day to day activities (work, walking around the shops, hiking on the trail) and my last pair lasted over 6 years. So far I've done some intermediate trail hiking and these shoes did fantastically...and still look great. I recommend for all loyal and new Birkenstock customers.
I got these from Backcountry, using the $20 coupon they sent, too. They cost like $35 total - thanks Backcountry!! Anyway, when I first got them they were the most uncomfortable shoes I've ever worn. I thought, "no way!" But after reading online reviews, I pushed through...and I'm so glad I did. The toe thing felt HORRIBLE. Now it's not bad at all, and the foot bed feels great. I'd say it took about a week for them to feel good. And they look so cute!! I'm happy, especially with the amazing deal! :)
I tried these on in another store intending to purchase through backcountry. I have very wide feet and they were practically spilling over the sides of these. Super bummed because I wanted to make them my summer shoe this year. Also I ran an entire size smaller in length than my regular size.
This is the first Birkenstocks I have bought. I need good cushion and arch support and these shoes have been nice. Plus these are actually petty dressy, so I can wear to church. I was initially only planning to make them my indoor shoes.
love love love these they're super rich in their color, i got the brown- i wear size 9 for my shoes & originally ordered the size 40 & had to exchange for the 39- the 39s fit like most size 9 shoes
... But I don't. The fit is fabulous, the quality is unbeatable but the color is too metallic for me. I sized up a half size and they fit perfectly, they are also just slightly narrow.
