I bought these Birkenstock's to wear as house slippers on the suggestion of a friend who owns a pair of the sandals.
I am a diabetic and suffer from (neuropathic?) cramping in my feet, because of poor circulation in my lower limbs. These Birkenstock Clogs have made an amazing difference. The first couple of days of wearing them I found them rather awkward, bordering on uncomfortable, but I was warned about this and also advised this would pass after a day or two and it did. Now I find them incredibly comfortable.
If I am sitting with my feet up and cramp strikes I walk around in these clogs for a couple of minutes and the cramping eases (usually immediately), before no amount of walking around would ease the cramping.
The sculpted insole really does promote circulation to my feet I can't recommend them highly enough, especially to anyone who has cramping or circulation problems in their feet or lower limbs.
I did note the other reviewers commenting on these being 'large' for their size, so I ordered a size smaller than my usual shoe size and they fit perfect.
I could not be without mine now and I even take them with me when visiting friends to slip on when in their houses.. Brillant product
Edit: 2 plus years later and my Birkenstocks are still going strong :-)
