I have had plantar fasciitis for 7 years. I have tried everything. I have worn running shoes pretty much all my life, every waking moment. I have worn orthotics, but the problem has never gone away. My Uncle and Mother say birkenstocks are the best for the feet, so I thought I would try them. It will probably be some time before I know if they work for me. I am hopeful. I wear an 11 AAA shoe and I purchased these in a 42 N. The fit is good. Because of the adjustable straps, they work for my narrow feet, and would probably work for someone with up to a B width. I do not even have them on the tightest hole, so a person with a more narrow foot could also wear them. I bought 2 different types of birkenstocks and have been wearing them constantly since they arrived. I sure hope they cure my plantar fasciitis.

So, I really wanted a different style of Birkenstocks, but these were so cheap, I wanted to give them a try. I have high arches and a broken sesamoid but both feet are prone to sesamoiditis. All other shoes with orthodics have been too flexible and my feet were sore and worn at the end of the day from working too hard. The stuff footbed and high arch helps so much. I thought I was actually buying the soft footbed, but hopefully, after some wear, they will be even more comfortable. The line for the toe is too high up for me, but my toes are very long.
Also, I hate this bronze color, but the price was right. Any way I can change/paint/stain this so Im not walking around in trendy shoes? I will definitely try another pair of these in the winter--and as always, I will be a loyal shopper of STP that makes me feel like I am getting a steal!

I have a narrow foot and cannot wear regular Birkenstock shoes because they are too wide for my feet. This sandal is a perfect fit in the narrow width. I wear a size 7 and ordered the size 37 and the fit was perfect. The 3 straps are adjustable which makes for a good fit. Was hesitant to buy a slip on, but this shoe stays on the foot well. Highly recommend.
