A223371 - Birki's Catalina Coral Print Single Band Sandals
Very cute for a Birki
I ordered the pink and with the colors in the print they match just about everything I wear during the summer. This is my first purchase of any Birkenstick style shoe. I rate this larger than sized because I know that I wear a 40 in other european sized shoes but these were obviously too big. I wore them around the house for one day just to be sure, but exchanged them (no questions asked) for a size 39 which was perfect. I have plantar fascitiis and, in my case, these were OK for that but I wouldn't plan to wear them for a full day of walking. I have received several complements on them.
MY VERY FAVORITE
THIS IS MY VERY FAVORITE!!!!!!!! My first pair of Birki's was this style and they made a believer out of me. I have four pairs of this style but am finding that it is becoming harder to find. Would like to see more of this style. I was initially reluctant to try Birki's, to spend so much, not knowing if I would like them. That was several years ago and I will never be without my Birki's. They have, literally, been a lifesaver. I have severe arthritis in my ankles and feet and I give a lot of the credit of Birki's for keeping me on my feet. I'm still wearing my very first pair, however, they are showing a lot of wear. They are my house shoe and my go to shoe and have really been good to my feet. Love, Love, Love These Birks
Just received these single band Birkis in turquoise and I love them! I've worn Birkenstocks off and on for 40 years and thought those days were over until I spotted these at Qvc online. They fit perfectly (not too narrow as the last pair ordered thru QVC) and just a great contemporary look that doesn't scream "aging hippy chooses comfort over style.". These are just a really cute sandal that happens to have the added bonus of Birkenstock comfort. I will wear these to work which I would not do with any other pair in this brand. If you have never worn Birkenstock I highly recommend you choose these as your first pair. And remember, even these will need time to conform to your foot before they ate truly comfortable. Once fully broken in you reap the benefits of the cork footbed.
Beautiful colors and print
I just received the blue and the salmon color. They are both gorgeous and the colors are beautiful. Perfect for Spring/Summer and the single band style is a big plus. They fit true to size and feel very secure on the foot but maybe just a bit wider then the ones I ordered from the 'papillio' collection. Will be wearing them a lot.
Love this Birki!
This Birki runs true to size. It is very comfortable right out of the box! The color blue/green is the perfect compliment to a summer outfit! I am very pleased with this purchase.
Can't Get Enough Single Bands
Single band Birks are my favorite! Got these in white - a great contrast of rich colors that tones down the bright white. The coral print reminds me more of paint splashes. Typically, the single bands are narrower (Madrid styles). So this wider band is a great change providing more foot coverage and comfort than you usually get in the single band.
My Summertime House Shoe
Love this Birki style, although I don't normally wear this wonderful brand, the single band style is flattering, yet wide enough to stay on your foot without flopping around. My foot is on the narrow side but the buckle adjustment makes the fit perfect.
Speaking of fit however, being a 6 1/2, I purchased the 37 in the recent TSV style but they were big and floppy on me so I actually sized DOWN for these, contrary to usual Birki advice. The fit is now perfect, they are comfortable, and for me they are a house shoe that stays inside most of the time, but is certainly allowed outdoors on occasion. :-)
I will vouch for the turquoise. They are fresh and pretty and they go great with almost any color of nail polish on your tootsies.
I love the Birki line, especially the single band sandals. I think they are the most flattering. These are SO COMFORTABLE, and really look great on the foot. I got the salmon and love the color. The band is a perfect width. These sandals are comfortable right out of the box. Highly Recommend.
I hope QVC brings in more SINGLE BAND selections.
beautiful color and perfect fit
I have fat feet so I worried these wouldn't fit because I saw the solid footprint on the footbed, which is a symbol often used to show "narrow" fit. However, these are perfect. I love the salmon color with the other colors within it. I think the salmon color will actually act as a neutral on my foot so it will lengthen my look. Love the shoes.
