"...place. I've heard a lot about Birkenstock sandals but never really investigated further as I thought they were some sort of glorified Scholl sandal which I can remember from days of old. Great heavy lumps of wood which were supposed to exercise the feet while you were wearing them. However, when I actually got to look at a pair I found to my surprise that they were amazingly light, didn't look too hideous and I was assured by the salesgirl that ..." Read review

Birkenstocks give your feet the support they deserve!

AdvantagesExtremely comfy, last years, good for your feet

DisadvantagesNeed to regularly apply cork sealant in order to make them last longer

"...anymore. I went to the Birkenstock store in Covent Garden to have a look at the full range and came across the 'Mayari' style. I thought they were the most attractive pair in the store, and more feminine looking than a lot of their sandals. Copy and paste this URL to have a look: http://www.birkenstock.co.uk/index.php?m=catalogue &a=vw_prod&wprid=693 I tried on several styles and found the 'Mayari' to not only be the most attractive but the most ..."
