These are the best summer sandals, once you break them in. They are totally worth the money since they last for years. The only reason I didn't give them five stars is because I've been hearing from friends that some of the newer ones aren't holding up as long as the older ones do. When it comes to styles, I prefer the thong sandals (Gizeh) made from the vegan (Birko-Flor) material. My favorite color right now is the metallic stone black. If you are looking for a sturdy, comfortable show, I recommend giving Birkenstocks a try.
Absolutely LOVE these shoes. Maybe they aren't the most gorgeous but they definitely feel incredible and I think they lean into a functional ugliness that becomes funky/chic/stylish. At least in my personal and highly sought after opinion (jk jk jk). There's nothing to improve upon. Perfect as is. I wish they made a platform in the rubber Arizona slides. I need a little height!
I love my Birkenstock! They took a little while to break in, but once they did, they become super comfortable.

Hilarious that Birkenstock is even on here. I feel like their reputation has already established itself. I have owned 4 pairs of Birkenstocks over the pasts 2 decades. The last pair lasted about 7 years. I didn't wear them to walk a lot, they were more for running errands or going to yoga, but they lasts! Just purchased my 4th pair. Love that arched sole! Yes they are a little granola ugly..... but I think that is part of their charm. Love love love.
Comfortable and in style. I have 3 pairs and they are my go to summer shoe !
I have worn Birkenstocks for a couple of years, and I mean, they are so reliable and great slip-on shoes. I have a color block pair that I get so many compliments on. Although with the smooth soles rather than the usual suede, they squeak for a while but eventually break in. I would love more platform options, too.
I have the Birkenstock Arizona Evas and I do like them, I feel like maybe they are not as high quality as the leather versions. I've had them for less than a year and had some issues with them ripping a bit around the toes. I do like them as an easy shoe to slip on and wear for errands or to the beach.
I have had 2 very comfortable Arizona Birks so far in my adult life. My first pair lasted me almost 3 years and were the MOST comfortable shoe I've ever owned. I wore them 95% of the time. They kind of mold to your feet so fit perfectly. The second pair I got was fully black leather and I had to break them in, which took about 3 weeks. I was concerned at first because they gave me blisters on my toes (unlike my first pair) but was told by an associate to give some time for the leather to soften up. I paid about $200 for the leather ones but many of my friends have the plastic ones which are much cheaper and still SUPER cute! Not sure about the comfort level. I have my eye set on the slip-on clogs as a future purchase!
I had to ease into the birks game over the last few years. My first pair were ugly and ugly in a bad way as opposed to a vibey way... That was on me. I learned what to do. The wife helped me get my game together and now im all in.. I have the bostons, the arizona and even a cozy pair for the cold... Cant imagine a week or world without these in my rotation. Big change this year was accepting socks are ok to wear... That was big.
Classic and always high quality
