Everything about these birkenstock sandals is gerat. What I have found is that Birkenstocks generally are larger than they say they are and so I've learned to order a size down. Ex.- I wear US size 6W and wear 35Reg Birkenstock.

site noted that these ran a full size bigger and they were right on. i ordered a size smaller and they fit great. havent seen a better price anywhere, great even for a style no longer made. i never even think about my feet when im wearing them, which says a lot about the comfort.

Very big and wide. so sizing is the key. normally wear size 6, 6.5 or 7. this one i am going down to 4(35) and narrow. once you get the right size, they fit perfectly and they are comfortable and stylish. I tried Berks a few times and they did not feel good. now that i find the right size, they are great.

I have to order a full size below my American shoe size with this shoe and must order narrow when I normally wear medium width. Size 35 is hard to find and I was delighted to find the size at Sierra Trading post at so much less than I was expecting to pay!!

First off the footbed of the shoe was EXACTLY as expected. The sizing was typical Birkenstock. I normally wear a 36 in a Dansko, Naot or Sanita but good old classic Birk styles I wear a 35 and even though I have a pretty average width foot the Narrow fits best. I knew all of that and the fit was true to Birk. The ANKLE straps however are very stiff. The strap that goes over the instep has a buckle, however the strap that actually goes around the back of the heel was/is too big and it rubs unmercifully. Shame, they are cute but I am sending them back. The straps may soften and break in, but I am not that patient and don't want to waste the money (even though the were a great price) if the they don't. I have reordered another style and will give those a chance.
Cons: Chafes, Needs Break-in, Too Stiff, Uncomfortable
