Sizing & fit
- Most people usually fit into the smaller of the 2 Birkenstock sizes noted in the chart above for most Birkenstock sandals, especially in the regular width. Usually you only move to the larger size in the regular width for Birkenstock shoes and sometimes clogs.
- Most people generally fit well in the regular width as compared to the narrow. If a style only comes in the narrow width, you may need to go up to the next Birkenstock size. Narrows in Birkenstock are generally similar to an American medium, so don't be afraid to try a style in the narrow width even if you are typically a regular... just try the size up.
- Make sure you position your heel all the way back in the heel cup before you adjust the straps. Many times, first-time wearers will position their toes at the front of the shoe first and not realize that there is way too much room in the heel. You will be able to visually see how your foot fits on the anatomical footbed and it will be obvious if it is not the right size.
