Very nice. The fit is actually better than the other three Arizona I have. One I got in about 1990 and is well aged, and all leather and cork, and has had 2 bottoms. The other is the same leather top and about 5 years old and the other (time is forgotten) was one of the last from the plant before the fire. I haven't had the vegan style before, and I used a spray to waterproof them, and it darkened the footpad. It didn't do that to the leather. I wasn't warned about that. Otherwise, they are great. I would like it if Birk's had a little more metatarsal support. I've started wearing socks to add more arch support because that's become an issue, and I wish I was warned (maybe I was) that using a protection would darken the surfaces.

I waited a few weeks to review these and I love them. It does take a few all day wears to break them in. The straps are long and I had to add a extra hole to the strap around the ankle. I do not have skinny ankles. Every time I wear them they feel better and better. Long lasting well made sandals.

Very supportive and comfortable. I have flat feet and pronounced arthritis of the feet and these are wonderful. On the roomier side, which I wanted. They are adjustable with the strap, of course, so this is not a problem at all.

I have two pairs of custom made orthotics. These Birkenstock Arch Support Maximum Stability inserts are far better than either of my custom ones. I have flat feet and pronounced arthritis of the feet and these provide extraordinary comfort and support. I have been using them in both my dressier work shoes and my athletic shoes and feel like I am in heaven. Thank you, Birkenstock.

This is the first time I have bought Birkenstock sandals. I have a wide foot and the uni-sex sandal was plenty wide. I had to put the buckle on the tightest hole, so not for narrow footed people.

I ordered and returned two different sizes, just couldn't get the right fit for me with the Madrid. Zappos customer service is top-notch, you can't go wrong with free shipping both ways. They are extremely helpful; I highly recommend ordering from them. I ordered a different pair today and looking forward to try my new pair.

I love the sandals! Purchasing these was my final effort prior to deciding that my feet needed more support than I could get from sandals. I have all the support I need, and love wearing them all day...walking and playing in them.

I bought these for my husband to replace his Dansko work clogs. He swears by Danskos, but is absolutely insane for these. He is on his feet 14+ hours a day in a busy OR and needs a great fitting, comfortable, durable shoe. These are perfect, easy wear, easy clean, and a great pattern too! He loves them! True to size and well built as the regular Birks are. Awesome purchase.

This is my first pair of Birkenstocks and I really like them so far. They were comfortable right off the bat, in spite of what I had heard about break-in time. I did have to return them for a smaller size, however. I usually wear a men's 10.5-11 so I ordered a 43 (supposed to be equivalent to 10-10.5), but I returned them for a 42 and they fit great.

I am usually a medium width but ordered narrow as Birkenstocks tend to run wide. Having the extra strap for support is perfect. The leather is a little stiff at first...I was concerned but getting softer as they are breaking in.

I like the rear strap that keeps the sandals on when running...classic Berkenstock quality and comfort.

Zappos always delivers on time and it is amazing that postage is paid both ways, if you have to return. The return process is simple and straightforward with no hassles, and they keep you apprised of your orders, and returns, by email. They could not be easier to deal with, and their prices are good. What more could you ask for?!

I have been wearing Birkenstocks for years. The three-strap models look slightly more attractive than the wide, two-straps, but I've always worn them for comfort, not looks. I recently wore a ratty old black suede pair to the salon and the young women stylists gave me compliments! I can't believe that these things are becoming trendy now, but glad,'cause it means more styles/colors are becoming available. I bought these Floridas in silver steel as a last minute alternative to take on an Italian/Sardinian vacation--intending to wear them solely to the beach. Turns out I worn them more than any other pair of shoes or sandals I brought, both at the beach and in the city. While I normally prefer the soft footbed, these were comfortable right out of the box. I wore them loosely for a few days and then tightened the straps and it gave my feet a whole new burst of energy. I was surprised by how many miles I put on these in a day and my feet didn't hurt. The shiny metal gave me a little bling (with lots of black and grey clothing) and I didn't have to worry about them getting wet. And they look good with all sorts of nail polish colors. I'm going to order a backup pair. Worth every penny!

I love, love, love these shoes I have 4 pair 2 of them are from last year. I have wore the soles all most out on last years, but hate to get read of them. this years are going strong. My dog got ahold of one of this years right after I got them, and tore a little place on one, was thinking I would have to take them to be fixed, but I have wore them for every day all summer and they have stayed the same. the tops are really made well. I would like to see some clogs made like these sandals, would get them in a min.

I'm returning the shoes by way of exchange because they are too big. I think Zappos's sizing on these needs to be readjusted. Please note: the color description and the color photograph do not correctly describe these sandals. They have a lot more blue in the red than is either pictured or descriptive of a sun dried tomato. I'm keeping the color because it's acceptable, not because it matched something I wanted to wear.

I bought these sandals after breaking a toe. They took a bit of getting used to since the soles are very stiff. However, they gave my foot very good support while my toe healed. Much cuter than a boot cast!

I love the Birkenstock/Papillio original footbed. It fits me like a glove and gives my feet complete support all day long. The design and color of this pair in particular, are just too cute, making the "crunchy, granola" look much more feminine and hip. If you are new to Birks, know that the original width is quite wide. The narrow width is medium (B).

By far the best Arch Support on the market. I have a pair that is over 20 years old! Still going strong. Can be washed in soapy water. Have tried a least a dozen others and they are worthless within months. Slips into all shoes...casual to sport shoes. I like to buy a 1/2 size up to accommodate. Great for Plantar Faciitis issues.

SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE CHEAP DOLLAR STORE CROC TYPES THAT HAVE ZERO ARCH SUPPORT AND OVER TIME WILL HURT PEOPLES FEET. DONT FORGET ARCH SUPPORT. THESE ARE JUST PERFECT FOR BARE FOOTED AND ROOM ENOUGH FOR A SOCK!

I love these sandals. They've got the classic Birk footbed. I have ridiculously flat feet, so this is necessary. As a runner I've noticed less injuries since switching to these in daily life. The gold color might not be for everyone (my roommate gave me the "they're nice, but not for me" insult-compliment), but I've found they go with everything, and even make some things look a little nicer because of them. If you're looking for sandals that are casual-dressy (not formal though, for sure) these are a good fit. Birks always tend to run a little big, and my last pair slipped around on my feet a lot, so I got these in a size smaller (10) and they're perfect. One last note: it's going to take some time for them to break your feet in (let's be honest, that's what's happening with all those blisters), but they are the best sandals I've ever spent this much on.
