Anyone have these Birkenstocks? What did you think?
I don't have the ones you linked to, but had some fake ones from debenhams a couple of years ago that had the same straps, and they were v comfy. I got these this year and they're super comfy, agree that having a strap across the arch of your foot makes them stay on and not slide around.
Thanks ladies. I am indeed embracing the Birkis eyeballs I am still wearing in my gizeh ones. I saw the florida ones yesterday but didn't get them, but am considering nipping in this morning to buy them. Then even if i don't wear them in this summer, they'll still be new for next year (Although i am hoping my gizeh pair will last longer than a year!)
swissmiss - have crocs also, been wearing crocs for about 3 years now and still love them as they are soo comfy.
I only just discovered birkenstocks at the weekend when someone had a pair on at a bbq - i also saw another pair of gizeh with tiny pink flowers on. Am going to stop myself from buying those but might have to before the summer is out as i guess they don't do the same designs two years running do they? <<hopeful emotion>>
I've got pink ones I got off QVC a few years ago. I've worn them to death but they are extremely comfy. I really love the patent colours around at the moment but they only seem to be available in the Madrids which I don't like the look of (need more foot support) or the Gizehs which are OK but again don't look as if they'd give as much support.
