To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My first pair of Birkenstock’s. Comfy after a couple of weeks, I followed the advice of wearing with socks for short periods of time to start with and now really enjoying them. They arrived just a few days after ordering and appear to be true to size and good quality.
This brand has a reputation for needing to be work in but I am left wondering if I haven't in fact been sold a pair of chins knock offs. I began to wear them in at the end of last summer, this led to a lot of blistering on the top of the foot under the white "leather" strap. They were not work over winter and this summer I have continued to wear them in, as advised by many a blog, and have been patient. I have worn these sandals for as much as 30 times and still they have not got to a point where they do not significantly cut my feet - to the point I now have scars on my feet just from these shoes.
My takeaway: The soles are very comfortable. The leather top is not fit for purpose. Try another material.
I choose apart slightly bigger as my feet swell. I wanted another pair of these sandals ( I bought 2 pairs one black one white ) as I bought my last pair of broomstick Madrid sandals back in 2011 and I'm still wearing them , have worn them every day actually wear them as slippers now. So happy when I've been out and get home the first thing I do is out my broomstick Madrid sandals on. I am extremely pleased with my purchase
I bought my first pair of these sandals a few months ago and found them really comfy,so decided to buy another pair in a different colour. I usually take a size 6 but when I read the reviews I decided to order a size smaller so I would advise anyone to do the same, as they do tend to be larger than the normal.
Tried all sorts of other sandals and always come back to these. Comfy, classic and wear well. The white goes with everything. I have even been able to get away with them at work occasionally. Some years ago my arches started to drop and my feet were rolling inwards because of flat shoes, these were recommended and they have solved my problem.
