Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I am writing this review because I know how difficult it is to order birkenstocks on line, especially if it is your first pair. The size conversion, footbed, medium or narrow- there's too many options and how are you supposed to know any of it if you have never owned a pair?!?! Since these are my first pair, I'm glad they arrived perfect and perfect fit. :)
To begin with- I ordered a pair that were sold by amazon.com to be sure that they were real. It was more worth it for me, and the size conversion would be easier knowing it was a real pair of birkenstocks. I was really confused as to ordering a size, but I am a perfect 8 usually, and AFTER DOING SOME RESEARCH (reading reviews, calling some local birkenstock retailers... Etc) I decided to order a 38 instead of a 39 because everywhere said they ran big, I even called a BEN LOVELL shoe store and the associate said she is an 8 but wears a 38 in birks. So I decided I would chance it and order the 38. Next, I had to decide...
The threat of buying fake Birkenstocks is always out there. As the attached photos show between the black (fake) and brown (real) pair, one can see the differences. The black leather is clearly thinner and less supple ("full grain leather" at best rather than Birkenstock "top grain"), the footbeds aren't Birkenstock and packaging aren't Birkenstock (though convincing at quick glance): compare the footbed printing, product tags, and Birkenstock watermark on the real Birks v. the gray paper included with the fakes. Since real soft bed Birkenstocks cost $135, it's perhaps no surprise that fake versions would saturate the market.
Too large. Waiting for smaller size. Had to pay international postage to return to Germany. Next time buy in a store.
