    I had a pair till they wore out need to get more but the price is little off putting as mine were from a friend who got the wrong size when overseas and couldnt exchange them

    No. I know a couple of people who absolutely love them, and they have tried to convince me my life would change owning a pair, but they are just not an attractive shoe imo (and so expensive).

    Lol I wasn't going to reply until I knew why you were asking :P

    But now I know, i will admit I own two pairs. I have green slip on sandals which I live in during summer and a black pair of shoes for winter. I have really wide feet and find it very hard to get shoes that fit, my birkies are sooo comfy... the shoes go really well with wide leg jeans (which I just about live in). The sandals are pretty ugly though so I mostly wear them around home

    To the PP who found other peoples birkies uncomfy, after a few wears they shape themselves to your foot, which is probably why they didn't fit your shape

    Default Do you or have you ever owned a pair of

    I am wearing birkis as I write this I LOVE them! They are the shoes I wear the most. I'm a nurse so very used to wearing sensible shoes when I don't my feet try and mount a revolt!

    I don't hunk they're ugly just not dainty and pretty (my opinion is a little bias though)

    I love my birkis! I live in them over summer and couldn't care less if other people think they look ugly. I do a lot of walking and need to be comfy. Thongs or pretty sandals wouldn't cut it.

    Yes! I'm wearing them now... with socks

    Even when it's cold I want to wear them. Super comfy!

    ETA: I also think they are uber stylish (not with socks). But everyone has their own interpretation of style. Personally I would never be caught wearing a sandal with a diamonte, sparkles or flower on it.

    They're worth it and they seriously last for years. I've had the pair I'm in now for nearly 9 years and they're not really even worn.

    I LOVE MY BIRKIES i'm 22 should be all about 'fashion' but with a size 11/12 foot i go for comfort! I have a flat foot due to living in nothing but thongs

    They have some really gorgeous ones A couple of years ago swarskovski (sp) had a range with crystals on them and they were $500.. I wish i got them!!!

    I own 5 pairs I can't remember who mentioned the crocs? but birkenstock do a "chef" shoe which nurses & doctors wear at the hospital which is very similar and much longer lasting!! and also a sandal variety
