I am SO VERY UPSET!!! I bought these less than 2 months ago! A week after the 30 day return, I noticed that the cork soles had cracked and separated all the way around!!! The leather straps have started to also separate from the sole! And the bottom has worn down like they've been worn for years! What in the world!? I'm so very very mad! My last pair of Birkenstock's lasted 22 years! But my new pair, not even 2 months! :(
In addition the arch is so high on the right foot (and I have high arches) hurts so bad I can barely walk or put weight on my foot. I'm so very very disappointed! You expect to get quality for $90 shoes and the brand. Then to have a crappy warranty too!? I didn't have $90 to throw away. The only reason I had to break down and buy a new pair is because some how the leather on my straps ripped on my old pair. I'd rather put duct tape on them and keep going. :( However I will say, I like the back strap this time. It keeps my feet from sliding back and forth and giving me little shreds of skin on my foot. That part was nice. I actually really liked the fit (except the arch), and all was great until the soles started cracking and the rest started falling apart. :( Also the color looked much darker online, but I could deal with that.
