Amazing sandals! I had my last pair for over 6 years. These wear exceptionally well and are super comfortable. I wore them brand new, straight out of the box, for a long weekend in Las Vegas recently. Even with all of the walking and sightseeing you do there, my feet never hurt and I did not get any blisters at all. I highly recommend them!
I wasted a lot of my life wondering whether my feet would ever live happily in a heaven sent shoe. Finally, after an eternal 28 years, my feet have found true love with a shoe so comfy it can only be sent to us from high on mount Olympus. I am positive this is the shoe Achilles wore and I too have achieved god-like speed and stamina with my beloved Birkenstocks. Please treat yourself to these wonders of mankind.
Real are the BEST footwear ever. I have plantar fasciitis and really struggle with fit. I wear them year round b/c I have to wear shoes (not slippers) in the house and I cannot go barefoot. Slip on and off. No hassles. If your feet are in pain, TRY a pair. You will never regret it.
I am an average women's size 8. Based on the reviews I ordered smaller, a 38N. My big toe touches the lip in the front (barely, but still) and the sides go right to the edge. Not uncomfortable at all, however, this in NOT how Birkenstock explains the fit. I had no problem returning and I am ordering the correct size per the Birkenstock sizing chart for a US 8M = 39M. I hope this helps someone.
Took two tries to get it right. I'm a size 7, but the US size for 6.5 and 7 are on the same size. Order based on the European size and you'll get the right size your looking for. Super cute and comfortable.
