Rated 3 out of 5 by shoelover Cute shoe....sizing confusing
If you're not familiar with Birkenstocks, this website does not give accurate advice on how to order. Birkenstock sandals come in regular or narrow width. Since it is not specified on the website, I assumed these would be made in the "Regular" (or medium# width. Birkenstock for J. Crew are made in the NARROW width. You can adjust straps but that doesn't change the width of the footbed. Also, birks are long on me. I am a 6.5 in flats, 7 in heels and size 36 birkenstocks fit me perfectly. I probably would have ordered the 37 or 38 based on the sizing advice of the website. Sandals are really cute. Just be aware of the sizing. Debating if I am going to keep them due to width...

I was drawn to the silver Birkestocks featured in one of the J. Crew emails. But, as a Woman of a Certain Age, was worried about looking foolish. So I forwarded the email to my daughter, who said "Go ahead, Mom. They look very cool, and I bet they're comfortable too." She was right. So I bought the navy ones, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Claire These are narrow fit Birkenstocks
Please be advised that J. Crew is selling the narrow fit Birkenstocks rather than the regular width. I found out the hard way. :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by KateR Love the style, but the quality is lacking
I loved these at first! I got them in silver about a month and a half ago. Wore them almost every day- they are very comfortable and really cool! To my surprise, the sole on both sandals started cracking- right at the edge of the front leather strap! How can this be? Plus the silver shiny finish gets so scratched up! I'm a J Crew addict and have had Birkenstocks in the past, that lasted for years... but the quality of these sandals is really disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ebrady5 Summer sandal you'll enjoy for years
I sized down in these from a 40 to a 39 to get the true Birkenstock heel to toe fit. Generally, they run wide, but fit my feet well. They're crazy comfortable and the white straps and sole are a nice update to traditional Birkenstock sandals.
