Katie Harkerwrote a review of Birkenstock Arizona Soft Footbed Suede Narrow Sandal - Women's on June 8, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I have worn Chacos exclusively for my sandals for 4 years now. I love my Chacos so much that I was skeptical to try anything else. But, I bought a pair of these for the days when I wanted to let my feet breath, but also look a touch more dressed up. I've worn them 8-10 times so far and still deciding how I feel. Overall, pretty comfortable! With my Chacos, I could stand for 8 hours at work with no pain. Not able to do that so far in my Birks. I probably am still breaking them in though. I understand that Chacos and Birks are for different purposes so keep that in mind.
Overall: they have done what I needed them to do, provide a fancier sandal that is still pretty comfortable.
Sizing: I have never thought of myself as having a narrow foot, but I read the reviews about the standard running big so I gave these a try. They fit great. I wear a 7-7.5 in every pair of shoes. At the widest part of my foot I measured 3.5" straight across. No pinching or odd hot spots. Seems the narrow was perfect!
