Go find the most hippy person you can find. More than likely they'll be wearing a Phish shirt or an old Grateful Dead tour shirt. Guarentee they'll be wearing Birkenstock sandles, even if its cold outside, although then they may have swiched to the Birkenstock clogs. Ask them.More than once I've seen Birkenstocks described as the most comfortable sandals in the world; do they live up to that? Any alternatives available? Thank you.
My Milano backstrap sandals are very comfortable. Once you slip into them, you'll wonder why you missed them. Naot makes similar sandals, some with removable cork and latex insoles like my Lappland. Ohhh... sheer bliss. For people who prefer style over function, comfort footwear gets ridiculed. But when you have to stand on your feet or walk all day, they make a difference.More than once I've seen Birkenstocks described as the most comfortable sandals in the world; do they live up to that?

You can get the cork outer edge sealed over with a leather trim. This will eliminate cork maintainance and drying out and keep them lasting longer. Then all you have to do is replace the liner and heel sections as they wear down.I think Birks are great, comfortable shoes. I have flat feet, and found their shoes to be very supportive. And their resoling program is very good, but given the inherent nature of cork, I disagree that Birks can last a lifetime.
