This is my 5th pair of these
shoes. I got the soft footbed model, which is really nice.
However, they turn into the regular footbed after a short
while. The only problem with Birkenstocks is that straps do
not come with enough holes punched in them. I must have twenty
pairs, and I needed to take every one of them to the shoemaker
to get holes punched to make a narrower, tighter fit. I
ordered these for a friend who has rheumetoid arthritis and a
lot of foot problems. She loves the comfort and fit of the
website was easy to navigate, shipping was free, and delivery
was prompt. The shoes were a gift for my husband, and he was
very pleased with them. This is a very comfortable shoe. I
consider my foot wide, but the straps are in the last hole and
still feel a little loose; otherwise, it feels perfect.
Excellent arch support. I have several other pairs and this is
definitely the most comfortable. I've tried different sandles

them on, and my feet feel releaved. They last forever if you
take care of them, and I don't care if they're not the
prettiest shoe on the market. They are the best! The Lombard
Sprinter Shoes were just perfect. I want to order another pair
for my son in the same size. (the exact same shoe.
