Birkenstocks making farting noises

Does this mean they are too small? Too big? Just not a good fit for my feet?? I got a smaller size than I usually do as they looked better and I had been told I'd likely need to size down.
But when I walk its like air is being trapped between my foot and the shaped sole and it makes a fart noise sometimes!!
Hopefully it's not just me :-S

Fraid it is, mine don't do that.

I wear them all the time, and have never suffered from farting sandals.

Are your feet sweaty?

Mine do this from time to time (long time Birkenstock wearer here - 26 years).

Keep wearing them - the cork bed will adjust PDQ and it will stop.

Mine fart when I first wear them. Once they're worn in about they'll be fine

Germgirl Thu 26-Jun-14 16:04:11

About?! A bit!!

BeCool Thu 26-Jun-14 16:04:30

it's a sign of having extra beautiful feet grin

Ah good to know! My right foot is much more farty than my left!!!
I'll have to wear them round the house till they are worn in to save embarrassment!

BeCool Thu 26-Jun-14 16:14:28

Your right foot must be VERY beautiful!

Haha. My feet fart in mine berkies too. wtf
Mine are quite loose so maybe that's it, my feet dont fart in any other shoes hmm

Mine do too sometimes - I agree with becool I think it's to do with having fabulously high arches, and just overall gorgeous feet grin

Mine fart. Fit very well. Have had them years. They still do it. I have super high arches so maybe that is why.

I'm glad I'm not alone. I have a beautiful pair of sandals and as I walk I parp parp parp down the road. I can't wear them sad

Mine fart. I bought a size down, as Birkinstocks are massive. Great for disguising a crafty one, though!

BeCool Thu 26-Jun-14 17:22:55

I have high arches too!

I've got some cheapy Birkenstock-style flip flops from Sainsburys. They fart quite badly - I can't wear them anywhere quiet!

Ah I have a high instep/arch.
Maybe that's it.

Yep my birkenstock fart too classy

FYI- Birkenstocks are on offer on eBay at 25.99 delivered. About 5 different colours smile
