Seriously, you'd almost have to pry these off my feet this week. I wear a 5.5/6 (feet slide forward) in heels, a 6 in regular shoes, a 6.5 in athletic shoes. I bought these in a 36N and they're perfect. I have a feeling for MOST women a narrow is going to look and fit better.
Let's face it, while comfortable, these aren't the sexiest shoes. But not all shoes have to be sexy.
I don't think these are hippy/clunky/ugly shoes at all. I've been wearing them with skinny jeans and cute fall sweaters all week. The last thing I feel is ugly and they're beyond comfortable - I think they're only going to get better as they form to my feet with wear.

Shoes are very comfortable and practical. I wear them in the morning when I take the dogs out. Shoes get dew on them but they look like new still (I've had them about a month). There actually have been times when I have sighed, "Ah!" when I put them on. I have a high arch and my feet are narrow, and these shoes are great. Really love 'em.

Birkenstock comfort, but in a Mary Jane style that isn't quite as clunky looking as most Birkie styles. My other two pair are smooth leather. I initially avoided the taupe suede, but decided they'd make good "house" shoes.

It's my very first pair of Birkenstocks. Because of its reputation of comfort, I was expecting that it will not need any breaking-in. I ordered R (regular width), which at first felt too narrow so that I thought I might have ordered/received a wrong size -- not so. The upper leather is stiff, but after a couple of days, it's starting to fit my feet. The arch support is "HELLO ARCH BUMP!" plenty which worried me at first. Again, my feet and Birkenstocks have gotten along since then. After a week or so, I am pretty sure that I will toss out my pair of UGG slippers and replace them with Birkenstocks (I wear these as indoor shoes).

This style was super comfortable. I was going to use them as a "house shoe" because slippers don't provide enough arch support for me. However, the left shoe was defective, and it was painful to wear (it aggravated a neuroma). Had the left shoe been properly made, I would have kept them because they were comfy & cozy. I have 6 other pairs of Birkenstocks that fit fine, & I knew this pair was not quite right. Luckily, Sierra Trading Post is so good about returns.
