Very disappointing, 14 Jun 2014
I read the Birkenstock site to ensure an appropriate order. I've been a size 11 for 25 years and, while they didn't have a size 11 in stock, they did have a Euro size 45 which, according to the Birkenstock site, is a direct swap for a UK 11. It also says on their site "Birkenstocks are designed to be roomy" so i thought I'd be fine. I tried them on around the house and they felt like new shoes: not comfy, not overly sore, but I trusted the Birkenstock website. Unfortunately, I wore them outside for a couple of hours and realised that they're just too small with 2 of my toes on each foot rubbing against the forward rim when walking. Horrible. And now I can't return them. That's the best part of £50 down the drain. Buy big or don't buy at all. And don't trust the manufacturer's recommendations.
