The Birkenstock clogs are beautiful. They fit great. I love them. For some reason the shipping on these shoes was very extended. If I remember correctly, it was about a month, however, Groupon kept me updated on shipping and even gave me a $15 credit on a future purchase as their way of apologizing. I was fine with it. It was really no problem for me. I was so glad I ordered them when they arrived. They are amazing!
The deal wasn't closed for quite a while, so I guess even though I'd purchased my clogs at a certain date, they didn't ship to me for several weeks. I have other Birkenstocks (sandals), and those provide great arch support (medial side of the sole). The clogs I bought seem to have more "center foot sole, plantar fasciitis" type support. They still feel good, but it's a different feel than the sandals I have.
I purchased the shoes, they took much longer to ship than they were supposed to, they then got lost in the mail for a period and when they finally arrived, they were too big. I have several pairs of Birkenstocks and wear the same size for all of them and these ones turned out to be so big I have a noticeable gap, an issue that defeats the point in shoes that are mean to cover the whole foot.
They took a long time to ship but thanks Groupon for a $15 credit because of the delay. The shoe sizes they provided are apparently not to USA scale. I ordered what they said was my size but my feet are swimming in them. I missed the deadline to return them. It took 2 sets of shoe inserts and a heel insert to make them fit. I won't get much wear out of them :/
These clogs are OK, not great - the sides near the heal on the outside of my feet seem too high and cut into the bottom of my ankle bone, and where the strap comes across the top looks like it isn't formed exactly right. It has a slight pucker. Otherwise they are pretty comfortable and give my toes plenty of room to move around.
Its not a well fitting clog which explains why it's on sale. These shoes are normally expensive.
I thought the Birkenstock Clogs would be softer and easy to break in. However, they are stiff and uncomfortable; therefore, I have not worn them enough to break them in. I wonder if the shoes might be a knockoff, not real Birkenstock at all. I have never had Birkenstocks before.
These have all the comfort you expect from Birkenstock. They are also really a cute and fashionable shoe with the "Mary Jane" type styling that they did. I get stopped and asked where I got these from all the time. People are always complimenting me on this pair of shoes.
I love them but would probably go with a size larger in the future. Still, the fact that they are backless (with a strap) makes them more flexible for fit. This was my own error in judgement, not on the part of Groupon. A GREAT deal on these shoes!!!!
Box was collapsed when delivered however the shoes were fine. I felt that buying shoes without trying is not a good choice. This was my first Birkenstock pair. Late delivery was not a problem because the way you responded was understandable.
