Take a while to get used to but then comfy!,

This review is from: Birkenstock Madrid, Unisex-Adults' Sandals (Shoes)
This was my second attempt at getting the right size, but following the advice of other reviewers, this time, I chose a softer leather style top, which is more comfy (to me) than the patent style. I also understood that the foot outline on the base of the shoe meant medium and the closed outline meant narrow so then it was easier to pick the right size. (Medium fits my feet the best). Finally I followed the instructions on the Birkenstock site... I wore the sandals for a couple of 20 minute stints with toe spacers (for nail varnish) in between my toes, and on the third wear - they were perfect, all day! It is really worthwhile unless you are used to Birkenstocks! I would recommend them. This was also my first experience of having to send back and re-order from Amazon and it was absolutely no hassle at all.
