Glad I finally got them!
I've been eyeballing Birkenstocks for so long and am so glad I finally bit the bullet! These were $10 cheaper than another site I was considering and the standard shipping was SO FAST! I'm usually an 8 and was nervous about the 39's being too big until I tightened the straps more and they fit like a glove. Comfortable and cozy, the suede taupe color was exactly what I was hoping for too! They're expensive but seem to be totally worth it so far! There's also a helpful Birkenstock sizing chart in the box that could be useful if you get these and they don't fit perfectly.
Takes a couple of goes to wear in but great after
You must wear in your Birkenstocks. The first time you wear them your feet will ache and they'll feel super strange. Bend the sole a bit when you get them with your hands to soften them up. This helps soften the cork and make them more comfortable to wear. I've worn these a few times now and they're starting to get more comfy.
Cute, practical, contours, but ouch!!
I just picked up a pair of these in black (leather) yesterday and I love how practical they are and how they contour to my feet. But the leather straps have been very uncomfortable and have broken the skin on the top of my right foot after just a few hours of use! Perhaps my strap was too tight or I'm doing something wrong, because I know Birks are renowned for their comfort. Here's hoping I eventually break these in and understand the comfort everyone boasts about!
right bigger than left
2 stars off for the right side being bigger than the left. why can't they make it the same size? it's a really big pet peeve of mine's that pairs are uneven!
I love the quality of these Birkenstocks, they are so nice! I recently bought these same Birkenstocks from another website in a 37, but they were so large it was like I was clunking around in swim fins. I know they are supposed to be a bit large, but these were ridiculous. I returned them and I couldn't find a size 36 anywhere....so thank god for FreePeople! I immediately ordered a new pair and I am currently awaiting their arrival. If these do not fit, I may have to resort to the children's sizes...(for reference, I tend to wear a size 6/5.5, but I can wear a size 5 US in certain styles) Small feet people be wary! I will update again.
Cuter than expected
I was skeptical when my sister wanted these for her birthday but purchased them for her. They are actually real cute and are true to size. She is 8.5/39 and they fit well. We were worried about "narrow" footbed but they are roomy. I cannot imagine how large the "wide" would be. She is excited to wear them in the summer and even now in the cold with cute socks.
perfect for my tootsies
I wore these all summer and into the fall and now, thanks to fp's darling socks winter. These sandals are truly the best in comfort and versatility! They run a bit wide, but I suspect I wouldn't be able to wear them with thick socks if they were more narrow. I am considering a second pair in another color so that I can wear them with more.
