I wear a narrow birkenstock but opened my box today to find a regular width, super wide birkenstock. So strange! I was looking forward to a nice neutral colored birk in a soft footbed and hope they find the right shoe! (I know it wasn't a narrow b/c the narrow birks have a filled in little pic of a foot under the heel.)
True to size if you have a narrow foot.
I didn't notice that the website calls out a narrow footbed, so, I was disappointed to get them and find that out. I have been wearing Birks for years and have actually had this exact model before... and I loved them. I HIGHLY recommend them for anybody who has a narrow foot. But, for me, these have to go back. :(
Reviewing the Habana Birks
I got these in the habana color which is the brown color. These are pretty well made, impossible to find any mistakes in the construction of the shoes. There's a distinct leather smell but that's usual with anything made with real leather. The buckles are adjustable and there's a lot of room for the top and sides of your feet. The only downside I noticed is that these are the narrow width shoes and could be uncomfortable if you have wider feet. I don't think I have wide feet, but even I had to adjust the straps a little to get a nice fit. Usually wear a 7.5US and got these in the 38EU, so it was a little large, but my feet fit snugly on the sole when bare and if I wear thick winter socks, it's perfect.
