The first pair of these sandals I ordered were irregular. The leather straps by the toe were different widths and lengths. Although it was just slightly, it was noticeable that one strap covered more of one toe than the other.
I returned them and brought it to STP's attention.
They sent me a new pair that are perfect.
This is just about the only Birkenstock I think I could wear. they are very cute and borderline sexy for Birk's.
I find them to be very comfortable except for my heels and achilles tendon feeling sore after wearing them for 8 hours or more. I've read that this is due to the cork foot bead making you walk properly, therefore stretching out those tendons that are tight from improper shoe support. When wearing them on a daily basis the sorenesss goes away.
Birkenstocks seem to run a whole size bigger than indicated. I'm between a 6 and 6 1/2. I ordered size 36 and there was quite a bit of room behind my heel. I then ordered the 35 which is said to be a size 5, but they fit just perfect, no toe or heel hanging over anything just completely right.
