Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Reviewed by Art Teacher from Florida on Sunday, December 15, 2013I am on my feet all day and need a quality shoe with good support. I usually wear Birkenstock but wanted something a little more dressy. I loved the high quality and support these shoes gave but the color was not right. It looked as though I were not wearing shoes because the color is so close to skin tone. I couldn't imagine wearing them often enough to warrant having them.
Reviewed by anita from oakland on Monday, April 22, 2013They look lovely but the biggest problem is the hard, too flat, toe box and presses down on my big toe.. The strap across the top is too tight, especially since I have a high instep. I was so looking forward to wearing them. If they don't feel perfect when I put them on, there's no point in buying them.
Reviewed by STP Shopper from Ohio on Tuesday, April 2, 2013After trying four pairs of shoes, I finally found a pair that fit. I wear 5.5 B and the 36's work well. I tried a pair of 37's, but they were too large. The leather is soft--inside and out and the front of the shoe is 'tough," giving support and protection. The pair I received seemed a bit used--scuffed somewhat--but I'm not going to worry. Just glad they work well.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by wilderness gal from central oregon on Wednesday, February 6, 2013Love Birkenstock comfort and thought these would be cute & comfy shoes for work. After trying them on, seemed they're too narrowly shaped for the style & detailing: they look more like granny's orthotics than cute, nice shoes. Maybe especially so in the tan color.
As others stated, order up. Not sure why the product description instructs half sizes to order down. These run small. (Usually a 40 in Birk and ordered 41. Fit fine.)
Verified Buyer Reviewed by SissyMyDear from Savannah, Ga on Thursday, January 10, 2013I am almost always a 9 however I have a fairly narrow foot. These shoes didn't have one uncomfortable pressure point. The arch support was a little strange at first but after two hours it molded to my foot. I typically wear stylish low heels by Biviel, Seychelles, or Fluevog and these are a bit bulkier than I am use to, but overall very happy because they feel sooooo great on my feet.

“On the width the shoes say N. My width of my foot is average. Will the N on the width be too small for me?”
The "N" classifies the shoe as a narrow shoe, we also recommend that half sizes order down. In general the shoe does run a bit small.
