Birkenstocks for Comfort

If you have sore feet and you have not tried to wear Birkenstocks, you may want to give them a try. These shoes have been popular for decades with people who love casual, comfortable sandals.

One of the most common health complaints in the United States is foot problems. When I began to develop frequent foot discomfort after a long day of walking and standing, I talked to my friends about the types of shoes they preferred to wear to deal with their foot pain. One brand that was mentioned repeatedly is Birkenstock. Since my conversations with my friends, I have learned that these open sandals really do help me suffer less foot pain.

However, I wasn't satisfied to simply report on my own experience and that of my friends. I thought I would also check out the reviews on sites like Amazon, where people are encouraged to report on their personal experience with any product they purchase.

Although not everyone finds them comfortable or thinks these shoes are attractive, in reading a number of online reviews I discovered that Birkenstocks seem to be popular with the vast majority of people who purchased them. In fact, there were 67 customer reviews of the Birkenstock Arizona Soft Footbed Sandals on Amazon and, of those, 50 people rated them 5 stars, and 7 rated them 4 stars. One buyer actually commented that they own 30 pairs of Birkenstocks, but this was the first pair they had purchased with the "soft footbed." They were thrilled with their choice.

If you have been suffering from long-term foot pain, try a pair of Birkenstocks. If you are like the majority of purchasers of these sandals, you will be happy you did.

Unisex Sandals Available in a Variety of Colors and Sizes

Birkenstock Sandals for Men and Women

Birkenstock makes sandals for both men and women. While you may believe that they only sell leather sandals in a variety of shades of brown, they also sell women's sandals in a selection of colors, including green, blue and red.

The Birkenstock Women's Granada SFB Sandal shown here received several good reviews on Amazon. Out of 18 reviewers, 11 gave it 5 stars. Only one person gave it 3 stars, and no one rated it lower than that. The sandals were not only comfortable, but one reviewer mentioned that the sandals seemed to help control her pantar fascisitis, as well. In addition, buyers seemed to appreciate the fact they they looked stylish.

Birkenstock Unisex Sandals

The Birkenstock Unisex Arizona Sandal is one of the more popular designs they have on Amazon. In fact, out of 170 customer reviews, 120 have rated it five stars and only 7 people rated it one star.

One customer said that he has big feet and has trouble finding comfortable shoes. He had just purchased his fourth pair of these sandals. One of the few complaints I saw was that the sandals tend to run large. You may want to keep this in mind when ordering.

Have you ever tried Birkenstocks?

      Time to get out the sandals. These will help prevent sore feet so if a person doesn't have sore feet, wear these shoes and don't get sore feet. :) Time to air the pinkies out. Spring has sprung in North Texas . . .

      @WriterJanis2: Birkenstocks are not "cute" in the traditional sense, but they are comfortable, practical shoes.
