Top reviews: "Love these Birkenstock clogs!! It's soft and fuzzy, looks cute when you wear them with long socks! Purchased them in the black color! However, they do kinda run small so I suggest going a size up!"online Nordstrom customer

"I ordered these and they happened to arrive right on my birthday. They are soft but stable. If wearing my long puffer coat is like wearing my down comforter to work on winter mornings, these clogs are like wearing shearling slippers with good arch support and the classic Northwest Birk look. So happy with my purchase!!"online Nordstrom customer

Top reviews: "I LOVE this shoe! I would highly recommend it. There was no need to break them in because they are already so durable. They go with all my casual wear. I am a 7.5, so I tried on an 8 in stores. The 8 was a tad too big, so I ordered the 7 shipped to my house and they fit like a dream! I plan on having these shoes for years to come!"online Nordstrom customer

"Great for your feet! Everyone must own a pair of Birkenstock shoes. They provide better support for feet, which helps my feet feel strong enough to withstand wearing high heels long hours."online Nordstrom customer

Top reviews: "I absolutely love these slippers. I was looking for something very comfortable, but sturdy. I like a sole on my slipper since I have wood floors and my feet and legs get tired when in socks or an unsupported slipper. I love the red color (fun when wearing with boring loungewear) and the way they make my feet feel. I am going to buy a second pair to wear in my office."online Nordstrom customer

"Love Birkenstock’s, but this was my first pair of slippers. Thought they might be too hot because of the shearling, but they’re not. Glad I gave them a try!"online Nordstrom customer

Top reviews: "These sandals are exactly what I was looking for. It has the comfort that Birkenstock is known for without being too bulky, which is my main complaint for some of the other styles."online Nordstrom customer

"Absolutely LOVE these shoes! I have gotten so many compliments on them! I think because the footbed is white they are more flattering than most other Birkenstock sandals. They seem more narrow which also makes them not look like your typical Birkenstock. The footbed is super soft leather which makes them super comfy! I have a ton of Birkenstock sandals and wear them all but these are my new favorite! I also have them in silver!! Love them!!!"online Nordstrom customer

Top reviews: "I am so glad I made this purchase! The T-strap makes them less "crunchy" looking and they are incredibly comfortable. Like clouds for your feet! I wore them for the first time on a trip to the zoo and packed tennis shoes just in case which was totally not necessary. This will definitely be my go-to sandal this summer!"online Nordstrom customer

"These sandals are comfy! The high arch makes this sandal easy to walk in, as I have high arches feet. This has become my dailies. I get asked a lot of those were comfortable and without a doubt I recommend them to my friends and family."online Nordstrom customer

Top reviews: "What's always nice about Birkenstocks is that they are classic. They have adjustable straps, which are great. These fit very well, and I expect them to last for 10+ years as my previous pair did. I love to wear them while cooking or ironing, as they support my feet well. The only disappointing thing is that the uppers are NOT leather. Some parts of the sandal (maybe the lining?) is leather, but not the straps. Too bad."online Nordstrom customer

"I have been looking for these sandals for a long time, having worn out my last pair. I was hesitant about ordering them, sight unseen, but they were the perfect size. I adjusted the straps to my feet and off I went. I like that they are different but you can wear them all day and not get tired! Love them!"online Nordstrom customer

Top reviews: "I've always heard good things about this brand but never liked how they looked on my feet until I found these. Can't believe I've gone this long without owning a pair because these are by far the most comfortable sandals I've ever worn. I work 10 hr days and had no issues by the end of the day and didn't need to break them in. I normally wear a 6.5 but went a size down based off reviews and the 5/5.5 fit perfect."—online Nordstrom customer

"Very comfortable. Straps were soft and adjustable. I bought them for better support for my feet since I developed plantar fasciitis in my left foot. In just the first week of wearing these, my foot was better and the pain went away! Loved the style too!"online Nordstrom customer

Top reviews: "What a fantastic sandal! They are comfortable right out of the box, so much so, that I forgot about my problem feet the first time I wore them, which is saying something. Comfort doesn't mean sacrificing good looks though. These sandals are very attractive on the foot. They don't look clunky like so much of the comfort footwear out there does. I'm glad I bought both the black and brown pairs. They are going to be my go-to sandals this summer."online Nordstrom customer

"I got these in the gold and they are awesome. They go with everything and are very easy to wear. I need the arch support so I can wear them all day. You can dress them up or down. Very happy with this purchase."online Nordstrom customer
