I can't get on with that style. The gizeh ones, however, are rarely off my feet in summer. I love them. It's only fair to warn you that there is no way back though. Once you have worn Birkenstocks, pretty much all other sandals and flip flops feel horribly uncomfortable.
I live in them in the summer. Mainly because they are the only sandals I have found which don't rub. Who wants to be too hot AND have blisters on their feet? Just bought a pair of white madrids to add to my collection.
Love mine! I have them in purple. I would break them in though - wear them round the house with socks on .. I had to make an unplanned long walk in mine the first or second time I wore them and my feet were in bits! Once they're broken in, they are very comfy. (Although mine do tend to get a bit smelly too - is it just me?!)
I love them, got about six pairs in different colours. Love the patent best. My only complaint is they (well mine, anyway) get a bit smelly towards the end of summer. I'm hoping its because I'm always greasing up my feet with cream as I have a deep loathing of cracked heels. Agree TK Maxx is a good place to buy them. I saw a lady wearing turquoise patent ones last summer in France and would love a pair like that this year. BTW my family hate them and call them 'Mummy's Beaverbrooks'. Weirdos.
I must be the only person on earth who can't get them to stay on my feet. I was constantly tripping over the pair I had and they took forever to wear in, oh the blisters. I stick to my trusty Reefs now.
If you are a costco member they usually get them in about this time of year. I have a few pairs and they are so comfy. I hated them at first, but they work in summer. The black ones and about 6 pairs of havianas are my staple 'summer' footwear.
And the person who does my pedicures said they are the best to slip on and off and not touch varnish.
