Enjoy easy styling with the Birkenstock Arizona Dark Brown Natural Oiled Leather Sandals, Unisex Women's or Men's Sandals (please refer to size selection). Dark Brown leather upper with adjustable straps for a durable exterior and custom fit. Please note: Birkenstocks are generously sized for added comfort so they are intentionally roomy. Most people prefer it this way: the straps can be tightened if needed! Read these 3 Birkenstock facts: 1) Length: Yes, Birkenstocks are longer than most sandals. Birkenstocks are sized to fit the 3 arches of your feet: The medial arch (the largest arch typically referred to in the phrase "good arch support"); the metatarsal arch (the pocket between the ball of your foot and your pinkie toe), and the lateral arch (the structure on the outside of your foot, in front of your heel). Because Birkenstocks flexes, at the cost of room at the ends of the footbed, a properly sized fit includes some extra room in front of the toes and behind the heel (in a normally-proportioned foot). This maintains correct support under your arches, providing a dynamic balance while you walk. 2) Width: Yes, Birkenstock are wide for comfort reasons. Birkenstocks passively support the architecture of your feet from underneath, just as your bare foot would be supported walking on a surface like earth or sand. Conventional shoes support your foot by binding them, rendering them less mobile. Your foot is a dynamic structure that NEEDS to move, in order to function correctly. 3) Break-In Period: Birkenstocks are firm under the sole of your foot since they are made of real cork. The cork footbed molds to the individual shape of YOUR feet over time, providing an even support across the entire surface of your foot. Please allow a week or two for your Birkenstocks to adjust to your feet.
