Love these! I am not a fan of socks so these are perfect for the winter months here in the south! Wish they came in black!

I love these sandals. I wear them all the time in the summer. I have bunions but the straps on this pair doesn't rub against them. I also have a somewhat high instep and the arch support on these are fabulous. I wear them for hours and my feet feel great in them. I usually wear a 7.5 and in these take a 38. Yes, they do take a little time to get used to, but once you wear them you'll want them in different styles. I also own the Arizona in white, which are funky-nerdy, but not ugly! I get compliments on those all the time. I worried that these would come off my feet but they don't. The only issue is you can't wear these at the beach. The footbed is not waterproof. I gotten caught in the rain with them a couple of times and they were fine.

I love all Birkenstocks, and Mayari is no exception. Great shoe, great support, my faves during the summer.

These are great sturdy shoes. Be warned, if you have never worn Birkenstocks before the shoes are heavily contoured and stiff and quite painful until you break them in and get your feet to adjust to them. After that though, they are very comfortable.

Best investment I ever made. I'm standing a lot in my work and needed a comfortable shoe. Easy to slip off and on. Just great comfort.

I actually ordered these after reading so many reviews. Had never stepped in Birkenstocks before or ever even seen a pair in person. I ordered the Arizonas in black but received brown Birkenstock clog type shoes. Must have been a mistake and could've been easily rectified with the amazing Zappos service but I saw myself in the mirror and I just couldn't get myself to go out in them. Even walking in them felt a bit strange, although I have heard that they take a bit of getting used to. Maybe I'll give them another a shot but as of now...I can't do it! It took me years and several returns to accept Uggs into my life - maybe Birkenstocks will be the same case!

Ordered these in stone and I'm in love! They are so comfortable and cute! I recommend the Birkenstock cleaning kit for these and I also recommend the mayari and back strap styles. I have both and I'm obsessed!

I almost sent these back because the first time I tried them on, they felt really loose. The suede is very soft and I thought that even though I had the shoes buckled as tight as possible, they would fall off my feet while I was walking. Am I glad I gave them a chance though! They are so comfortable, and after wearing them once I realized my initial impression was wrong. I also ordered a pair with the regular footbed, and these two pairs are the only shoes I wear. They aren't the prettiest shoes, but they make my feet very happy. Great for long walks too.

I live in Chacos all summer, so when winter comes around, I'm at a loss! My hubby has has a pair of Birks for 15 years now that he uses as his indoor shoes and wanted me to have some too. Out of the box the regular width felt a bit too roomy on top, but I didn't think the footbed should be any narrower...I had read reviews that unless you have very wide feet, you should get the narrow. My feet measure 4.25 in at their widest point across, and regular width is perfect. The softer footbed is nice; it doesn't take too long to break them in. I adjusted to the looser feel in the top of the shoe, and they work great with thick socks. I even love them barefoot! So, the price is a lot for "house shoes" but I think they are worth it...especially if I wear them for 15 years like the hubs.

I bought these for my 30 year old daughter, thinking they would be plain old brown. Instead they had a bronze-y sheen to them, totally ugly. So disappointed! The style is ultra simple, Birkenstocks are all about comfort, simplicity, and functionality. A glittery bronze finish does not, to me, go with the shoe or the brand.

Ouch! Do not buy these shoes! I have worn Birkenstocks exclusively for years, and was excited to try these as they are such a cute style! I put them on and went to the grocery store and an hour later had deep cuts where the straps were! I had to go home and change shoes before continuing my day, and it is now 4 months later and I still have scars from the shoes!! After only wearing them for an hour or two! Absolutely ridiculous, horrible quality and not at all what I would expect from Birkenstock...returned these with an angry letter of course!

These are great for a little while. Then, the Shearling starts coming off, and you are left with blotches of empty spaces where the shearling used to be. So, they are not so great after all! I exchanged my first pair (with the missing shearling), for another pair (in a different color), and then the second pair had a defect. The left shoe was crooked, so when it was on the floor, it did not lay flat, it was crooked - half of it did not touch the floor (if you can understand that), so now I am in the process of exchanging the second pair for a third pair of the original color, because the second pair color is out of stock now (oy vey). I am pretty sure the shearling will come off again, but I do not care because they are comfortable, warm and provide support for indoor slippers. I will just keep exchanging them, as long as I can. Zappos is an absolutely awesome company. They are super fast, super accommodating and easy to work with. They are my go to for so many things. I absolutely love them.

These were the only pair of sandals I took on our beach vacation. I wore them everyday and also with a maxidress for a date night. So comfortable and I love the gold color! Might need to get the silver ones next summer!

Zappos has amazing customer service. Very fast, free shipping. This is the 7th pair of Birki's I have owned. I am a chef and would not wear any other shoe.I would say in my opinion they run a little small. in all other European shoes I wear a 44. US 11/11.5 Sometimes I even have work a 43 depending on the style or "shape" of the shoe. So I was aware of this. But it's a Rio for first time buyers. Zappos make it so easy. even to exchange or return. If you are looking at this shoe either for work or for play, get it. I think they even look good with jeans. Don't waste money on Croc's. this is the real deal!

I have horrible feet and Birks are great. Always looking for one that is less clunky and this fits the bill. The only grip is that the strap is so narrow and so far front that these fit and walk more like a thong and 'snap' when you walk.

I have worn Birkenstock sandals for years, but never have I had their clogs. I have flat feet and was dying to try the "soft" footbed. I ordered a 37 since I usually wear that in Birkenstock sandals. They were just too small. My toes kept bumping the edges of the clog. I exchanged for a 38 and am SO HAPPY. It is literally like walking on a cloud. My feet never tire. The taupe color does get dirty easily, and shows spots, but I don't mind. I will wear these until they fall apart!

I am solidly a women's size 7 (literally every pair of shoes I own is size 7), so I ordered the 38s. They were way too big, which I unfortunately didn't realize until after I had treated them with waterproofing. I ordered the 37s and they fit like a dream. So comfortable! I wear them all the time, especially as house shoes. I wound up giving the 38s to my mom as an early Christmas gift. Highly recommend this shoe, but definitely beware on the sizing -- if you are on the fence at all, order a size smaller than you normally would.

These are fabulous. I've been looking for the perfect house shoe/slipper and this is it for me. I am used to buying the soft footbed but the shearling makes up for it. It was comfortable from the minute I put them on. I ordered my usual size and they fit perfect. Initially, I thought the shearling was on the thin side but after wearing these for a few weeks now, the shearling has matted down nicely and a thicker shearling would probably be too much. It's a thinner shearling them the Merrell Chills I have and wear outdoors. In the past I've used Stegmann as house shoes but after a couple of years, my toes would break thru the felt. I don't expect that to happen with this shoe. Happy!

I want to say that these shoes are perfect because they are the most comfortable ever (that is true!) and because my feet are always happy when I wear them (also true). However, I got them for my work as a cook and the soles are already falling off after two months. I am not hard on my things at all, so this is a shocker. I hope that I can find the right type of glue at a shoe repair shop.

I have the Boston Soft Footbed in three colors. They are the shoes I wear most of the time. The Boston keeps my knees in line and my hips do not hurt as much. Perfect day to day comfort here in the cooler days.

I normally wear a 41 in Birkenstocks, but a 41 was too small in this style. In addition, the footbed does not have the raised toe line.
