This is my third pair of Birkenstock (1st pair bought about 13 years ago, still going strong and suede-y straps and cork sole sooooo comfy!) - only received them today and tried them on BUT soles are lovely and thick and sturdy, sizing is perfect (I'm a size 5 1/2, wideish foot and 5s are fine here) and as these are going to be used for everyday multiple walking stints in my job, they are going to be a Godsend; I wouldn't recommend them for a glam holiday evening sandal, neither would they pass muster, I think, for 'formal' situations, but I know my feet and I know these lovely soles are going to be perfect for pounding the pavements next year and the good quality straps which allow for hot weather foot-swelling will suit me fine. All round good old workhorse sandals - if that's what you are looking for, look no further!
