This is the first pair of Birkenstocks I have owned. I love them The fit is great, but it did take about a week for my feet to adjust to the correct way of walking! Don't let it discourage you from getting your pair. You can adjust quickly!

I've just thrown out my second pair of these sandals. I thought the breakdown with the first pair was an aberration but the second pair of these beloved shoes did the same thing...(both right & left). Given the nature of the instability of the shoe, they were no longer safe to wear. I have older Birkies (Arizona) that have never had this problem.

The Toe loop takes a little while to get used to it. Still after wearing the sandals for a few weeks, I sometimes notice pain in the big toe. So, I alternate with the other pair I purchased. I have had plantar fasciitis for 7 years or longer. I was advised by my Mom and Uncle to try Birkenstocks. In the past, I always wore running shoes just about every waking moment. Since I developed plantar fasciitis, I was advised to wear orthotics in my running shoes. I did this religiously for a year and a half. The condition only worsened. I am hoping that I will have good results with these birkenstocks.
