A215874 - Birki's Soft Footbed Leather Double Strap Sandals
Loving the soft footbeds
This is my second pair of the soft footbed sandals. Very comfortable. I would rather have the leather straps, they seem to last longer and form to your feet better. I also like to stiffer leather straps on these as it makes them easier to slip on.
Able to wear Birki's Again
I live in a desert and used to live in Birki's before I got foot problems. The soles on the other type of birki's were too hard for my foot problem. However, I have been wearing these shoes two or three times a week since I got them and no problems. I would recommend giving the soft foot bed a try if had problems with Birki's in the past. I also love the black and white color as it goes with everything and the pattern is cute.
I'VE NEVER HAD TO RETURN BIRKI'S
THIS PAIR IS GOING BACK AND THAT IS A FIRST. THE UNDER SIDE OF THE STRAPS ISN'T FINISHED. THIS ISN'T MY 1ST PAIR OF BIRKENSTOCK S, BEEN WEARING THEM FOR 40 YEARS, SO I'M RATHER SHOCKED. I THINK THESE ARE TOTALLY COMFY, BUT THE STRAPS LOOK FUZZY ON THE EDGES AND THE UNDER SIDE JUST ISN'T RIGHT. I ALSO AGREE WITH THE REVIEW THAT SAID THE COLOR ISN'T EXACTLY TURQUOISE. IT'S MORE GREEN. I WILL ORDER AGAIN. JUST WON'T BE THIS SHOE.
Love the soft foot bed...
...but the straps seem a little tighter than my other Birki's. A few of the reviews stated that they stretch after wearing and I'm hoping that's the case. I have them both on the last hole and with all of my other Birki's I'm right in the middle. Maybe it's the soft foot bed pushing my foot up a little higher than on a regular Birkenstock..?? I ordered the Sage and it's more of a Taupe but I love it. I live in these shoes all summer...they make my feet happy :)
The 3rd Time's a Charm!
I tried Birki's or Papillo twice and I just could not adjust to the hard footbed. I wanted to give the brand one more chance so I chose this soft footbed and it made all the difference. I have a wide foot and at first I thought I would need to have another hole punched in the straps. However, now that I have worn them for a couple of weeks they seem to have stretched a bit and they don't feel as tight across my foot. It will be bad for me financially but I have found the solution to my Birki's dilemma.
First Birki I've Ever Returned!
This shoe's straps are too stiff and uncomfortable to wear. I've been a Birki wearer for so many years I just click, buy and wear without thought. I love this product, but this particular shoe is not one I'd recommend.
I'M A BIRKI FAN
THIS MAKES MY 23 PAIR OF BIRKI'S SO COMFORTABLE.LOOK NICE. I HAVE REALLY PROBLEM FEET SO I WEAR BIRKIS YEAR ROUND.
I love the softbed and the adjustable straps to fit my weird foot. Now if only the clogs came with the softbed....... I am 8.5 Wide, and size 39 is perfect.
This is the second Birki I have sent back in a month. I own lots of them, so don't know what is going on with the Birkis QVC is selling. This one has the soft foot bed I like, but is so full, it feels like a pillow and secondly the underside of the the strap scratches my foot and the straps are so big for the shoe that I have had to use most of the holes and does not leave much room when they stretch out. I am tired of the return shipping charges so it may be more cost effective for me to buy at a brick and mortar store.
This is the first pair of Birki's I have owned and I am so glad I purchased them. I have problem feet and these shoes are just the answer. I wore them for hours without the pain I would have in other shoes, sandals and sneakers. They cradle your feet. I was a little hesitant to order them at first because I usually have a problem keeping shoes that are not completely strapped or tied to my feet from flinging off but these shoes stayed put. Birkenstocks will definitely be on my list of shoe brands to own. Since I live in Upstate New York with harsh winters I am now hoping to find Birkenstock loafers.
These are my first pair of Birki's and I love them. I get lots of compliments on them and the soft sole is comfort at it's best. The green is more of a taupe color but it goes so well with everything. I work on concrete floor and my feet do not feel tired at the end of the day like with other shoes.
The Soft Footbed is the greatest!
Love the Soft Footbed. That is all I will purchase from now on. The others took me a long time to break in. I think the style is very attractive. I choose the brown. I may get another color as these are so great.
