Perfection !
Granada Soft Footbed Review:
I have been trying to replace my old granadas which I have turned into yard shoes finally!! It was difficult to find leather ... everything seemed to be made of synthetic and hard edged... did not seem that comfortable. I was so happy to find just what I wanted with Online Shoes. They will be my source going forward.
Birkenstocks back in style and worth it!
Arizona Soft Footbed Review:
I have very narrow feet, I normally have trouble finding shoes to fit but these narrow birkenstocks caught me by surprise. I really wanted a pair of birks but figured they would be too wide. These not only fit but are extremely comfortable with the soft footbed. They go with everything and are very comfortable to walk in. I believe these are well worth it for girls with narrow feet like me!
Still Reliable
Milano Soft Footbed Review:
Not very pretty and very expensive, Birkenstocks are good for my feet and my back.
Very Comfortbale
Arizona Soft Footbed Review:
These Birkenstock sandals are very comfortable and support my foot just like I had hoped. In the past I've wore cheaper flip flops all summer but they were bothering my feet. The Birkenstocks provide more support and I can wear them all day without any issues. I am a size 9-9/1/2 and ordered the medium. At first I was worried about ordering the regular rather than the narrow but they are perfect. I really don't see a huge difference between the narrow and regular (I have the silver narrow Arizona's too). The soft bed foot is great - no break in time required. Also, the color is great (Tobaco Oiled Leather), they go with everything.
Arizona Soft Footbed Review:
I have two pairs of the Suede Arizona and I was looking forward to a third.....but the pair I ordered in Mocha the suede was smooth on one sandal and nappy on the other so I returned them. I think Birkenstock needs better quality control, I ordered a tan pair from Nordies and they looked like nubuck they didn't even look like suede.

About Birkenstock

The Birkenstock clogs and sandals that are fashion and comfort staples today have a history that dates back to 1774, when Johann Adam Birkenstock is registered in a small German village's church archives as "subject and shoemaker."

In 1897, Johann's grandson, Konrad Birkenstock, theorized that curved shoes would be more comfortable than flat shoes. He developed the first contoured insole. In 1902, Konrad developed the first flexible arch support, to be inserted in factory-made Birkenstock shoes. In 1964, Konrad's grandson, Karl Birkenstock, integrated contoured arch support directly into the footbed, and the Birkenstock sandal was born.

Birkenstock USA began in 1966, when founder Margot Fraser visited Germany. Seeking relief from uncomfortable shoes and the pain of walking all day on hard pavement, she visited a spa, where someone suggested that she try Birkenstocks. Her relief was immediate, and within months of returning home to California and continuing to wear her Birkenstocks, Margot's chronic foot pain vanished. Convinced of the health benefits of Birkenstock sandals, she started a distribution business selling them.

In 1973, Birkenstock Arizona sandals were introduced. That iconic two-strap sandal has been re-invented in a variety of color and material combinations, and remains as comfortable as it ever was. Birkenstock Boston clogs also enjoy a long history; it was introduced in 1977.

Now, Birkenstock USA is 100% employee-owned, and continues to celebrate comfort with quality products that are unique, timeless and respectful of the world around us.
