Something similar to Birkies

I just don't like Birkenstocks. I have tried hard, and love the comfort of them, and the foot bed thing, but think they make my feet look frumpy and elephantine.

However I like the comfort and flatness and flippy floppy feels. I just want some substantial flip flops I think. Pastel colours because I have summer colouring

Have a look at moshulu.

Dead comfy not as wide looking

Scholl do some very similar ones but with thinner soles and a more delicate look.I first saw them in a designer clothes shop!

Yes, I've looked at the Scholl I sort of associate them with comfy little old lady shoes. I saw some wooden soled ones with butterflies on the sole. Very pretty.

That website looks good too

Try the narrow soft footbed ones and go for a thong toe design not the straps with buckles across the front of the foot when it comes to birkies.

Crocs flip-flops are comfortable and easy on the feet. Not the best looking mind but some times it's a comfort thing that's wanted.
