I'm a birkenstock virgin but I really can't keep my feet in trainers for another day...I walk LOADS with baby, dog etc and don't want to be in pain - can't deal with floppy offy flip flops - would Birkenstock Milanos do me do you think??

I find the Arizona & Gizeh fine for walking a lot

And really? without the strap at the back is ok?

Arizona or Gizeh here too. Not Madrids.

i have gizeh, high arch, long toes and narrow heel. madrids are for narrower feet.

you will need to break them in a bit and will probably get some sort of blister on ball of foot but i walked 4k in my latest pair direct from the shop and nothing dreadful happened.

milano is definitely sold for kids
not sure about men

Can heartily recommend Birkenstock Tanegas for walking miles in - look like Milanos but with thinner straps and soft footbed. Got mine from here. They also have a few other styles with heel straps - I couldn't walk any distance without as your toes try and grip the shoe on and it's not comfy.

I was a Birkenstock virgin til this year and can't believe I hung onto my fakes for so long...

Arizona but only when your feet and arches are used to them
