This is the second pair of Birkenstocks that I have purchased - both within the last few weeks. The first pair is the Moorea from the TSV - these were slightly on the large size but still very comfortable on my feet. I went down a size for these Papillio sandals and they fit like a dream. No need to wear them in and they get even more wonderfully comfortable as you wear them. I found, with both pairs, that they needed the straps adjusting after about a week of wear (time to let your feet and sandals adjust to each other), and now they feel as though they were made just for my feet!
I have a troublesome Morton's Neuroma on my right foot and my podiatrist recommended Birkenstocks as being the best footwear I could possibly wear for this particular problem - now I don't like taking them off. Wish it wasn't so wet outside :(
Looking forward to the next TSV in July.
I really cannot recommend these sandals highly enough.

Wasn't sure about the 3 straps but loved the colour so i thought i'd try. In real life they are stunning. I'm tanned skin and against that the colour just pops. The 3 straps are very comfortable and secure. I didn't need to break them in but i've been wearing birkenstocks for over 10 years. For a gorgeous pop of colour in the sun these are the ones :)

I am a big fan of Birkenstocks anyway, but usually have to wear them in a little bit, which is really worth doing. However these sandals did not need any wearing in at all! They were comfy on first wearing and I never had them off my feet when the weather was good! The colour is gorgeous and I just can't wait for summer now to wear them all the time. I really hope some other colours come in stock as they are just lovely shoes.

What took me so long...........!
These sandals are sooo comfy (surprised) I've sat on the fence with Birkenstocks for a long time - I'm not a mule or flip flop thong sandal girl and don't like too much exposure on my feet but still want an airy feel, these sandals tick all the boxes for me and I love the coral its not a neon colour thats around at the moment they are such a beautiful colour and have I just said they're soooo comfy they will go with everything in your wardrobe well worth the money. If anyone who like me was not too sure with this type of sandal give them a go as there is so many differant styles in the range and these will certainly not be my last. The recommendation of getting used to them around the house is good advice, but can honestly say that there really isn't any need.
