Got these just in time for socks and cool weather. I wear a 10-10.5 in most street shoes and the 43 worked well. The narrow is better for my foot even though I'm not normally a narrow in other shoes. I also recently got a pair of Arizona style and the 43 narrow was good their, so these are consistent. I've had the regular width in both styles and know now that I need narrow. My feet swim in the regular width.
These are my first soft footbed Birks. They are comfortable, but not a game changer. I'd be happy either regular or soft footbed.
As for the color, they are a darker cocoa-like color, and a little rough finish. I couldn't find anything that really helped me know what I was buying so at first I was a little surprised when I saw them. They aren't flimsy and plush like normal suede, nor are they stiff and slick like he normal leather. The leather has some texture to it and it seems substantial, somewhere between the two styles I mentioned above. After a day or so, I decided I like them even though it is not exactly what I thought. That's not a bad thing because the color is pretty normal but I've never seen anyone with this exact style/color.

I really really wanted these to work,, I have always wanted to wear Birkenstock. After reading all the reviews, decided to try them. First let me say, I have always had trouble with Euro sizes, and I was hoping these would be different, but they weren't. That being said, IF they would have fit correctly, I think they would have been very comfy! The soft footbed was wonderful, but my toes hit the front,(I am a true 7.5) so I tried size 38 Narrow,,, once again, from the reviews, everyone said medium width on all other shoes, Narrow width in Birkenstock. Don't believe everything you read. I loved the bright green color and the soft wool and the soft footbed,,, they just didn't fit me correctly.

Ran,|you letter made me laugh!But, unfortunately I would not recommend ordering a narrow pair of shoes without trying them on first. Fortunately I have a simple solution for you! Here's what you do, find a shoe store where they sale narrow widths Briks, go and try them on and see how they fit. If they fit drive home as fast (safely) as you can, turn on your computer, come to our site and order yourself a brand new pair of Briks at a great price! Have a good one!
