Viva La Birk!
Love love my AZ Birks! These feel great and I love the arch support. After a month of wearing, they've softened up and I may need to create an additional hole so they are not so loose. If you get the right size, Birks are the best for arch support. I live in these things...except work, of course. I would recommend and plan on buying another pair, just different style. Get ya sum and get your Hippie on!

Great shoes- leather stretches a bit, so may be wide for some.
These Birkenstocks are your standard suede/leather ones, and they are great quality- Made in Germany- and the color is perfect and neutral. The only problem is that the suede stretches quite easily, and my daughter had to make a new notch to keep the shoe fitting (and she has a wide-ish foot), so I would say they run a bit wide and about right for a 39; however, if you are more of an 8 than an 8-1/2, they would be a bit big, I think. We got these for a good price, and I would recommend them, just knowing that they might run wide (or stretch wide).

this is my 2nd pair of Birkenstock. I guess ...
this is my 2nd pair of Birkenstock. I guess due to the leather is different than the one I used to own, this pair hurt my feet so much...I got the Black Oiled leather. After wearing them for a day to a museum, I came home with bruises (red/purple) and black stains on my feet. I seriously want to return them, but wondering if it will be soften if I wear them few more times?

Literally clouds for my feet
You cant beat the best, and this is the best. Birkenstock is my favorite shoe and if my work allowed it I would wear them 24/7 (literally I could sleep in them). Not super comfortable for the first 6 months, but once you break them in, then the real fun begins! These are perfect in every way.

Finally the right size
Finally the perfect fit. Good thing theirs free returns. The "regular" is too wide and my foot is definitely not narrow but the "narrow" fit perfect. Also I purchased the 39 when size 40 was what was recommended. So imagine my regular size 40 was swimming on my foot. I love them now! Can't wait to get other colors!

Never thought I'd own a pair...
I never thought I would own a pair of these shoes. When I first saw them as a small child I thought they were hideous, just like the Teva sandals. However I have spent the last year traveling around the world and have needed some good walking shoes. My friend recommended I buy a pair and I finally splurged. They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned once you break them in. Their appearance has also grown on me; I may end up buying another Birkenstock product in a different design!

happy in the end
So this was the first time I purchased a Birkenstock, so it took a couple tries to find the right pair, but all is forgiven and forgotten now that I have the perfect Birkenstock for my feet! So the first pair I bought, I ordered according to the size conversion chart. I'm usually a 7 (women) in slippers, so I ordered 38M. They arrived and were way too big, both length and width. I found out AFTER ordering that M is actually for wide feet, whereas N is for normal feet. What?! So I returned and ordered a 37N. This time, the size was perfect, but I found out that birko-flor is not real leather. So I returned again and ordered the leather ones (black oiled leather).
I hated the process of returning and waiting (TWICE!), but in the end, I was happy. Returning was free and relatively easy (drop off at UPS store), which I appreciated. Birkenstock Arizona sandals look awesome, seem sturdy, and are comfortable (so far - I've only had them one day). I can't believe this is only my first pair. I guess I couldn't bring myself to pay $100+ for a pair of sandals, but I was rewarding myself for something, and now that I own a pair, I feel like it's worth the money.

Weird that it asks how long these can be worn comfortably and the choices are all day then down to 2 hrs. Well, I hear they get more comfortable over time. These are popular sandals so I'll believe that. I've wanted a pair for a while now and tried these on in a local store before buying here for $35 cheaper. I really like them!

Overall, Great Purchase...
I purchased these sandals because of my past experience with Birkenstocks, in particular Arizonas. Birkenstocks are well worth the money spent, and AlumiGogo offers them at a discounted price. Unfortunately, the first pair I received was damaged. However, I contacted AlumiGogo, and actions to resolve this issue were initiated immediately. I received the new pair within a few days, and then I shipped the first pair back using the supplied shipping labels. I also received a confirmation email when AlumiGogo received the return, and therefore I am pleased with the outcome. I do feel the product should have been inspected, for with the damage that was there, it was evident that these had previously been returned. Overall, though, I would recommend purchasing through AlumiGogo, and the shoes are a great purchase, as expected!

Birkies run large but still perfect when you get the right size
I'm a women's size 7 and ordered an "EU 38" according to the guide provided. Clearly too large, but AlumiGogo is amazingly quick and convenient with free returns, and had sent me an "EU 37" within the week -- the very day I took the original pair to UPS. 37 fits perfectly. Something to note: My "Betula" (a Birkenstock licensee) version of Arizonas fit perfectly as a 38; the Birkenstock "lasts" must just run large -- I noticed this earlier this year when ordering the 'roman sandle' version of Birkenstocks vice Betulas; seems consistent throughout their range of shoes. So get the "normal" size with Betulas and a size smaller with Birkenstocks (and no hassle swapping sizes through AlumiGogo). Excellent quality; my husband loves his so much that he just sends them back every few years to be re-soled.
