durable i would say yes, any worn out part can most likely repair. But one thing I do not like is that after some time it will turn black brown (the sole, from stepping on it with ur feet sweat)

Birkenstock is meant to be wore in door. They are very comfortable especially walking on carpet. This thing doesn't cost that much in its home country. When sampai malaysia jadi mercedez and every retard is wearing them outdoor not because they have the best cushion, but to show off that they can afford birkenstock.

My first pair already 5 years, not a lot of cracks but still wearable.

Now total got theee pair, I am die hard red color fans.

Then I just wear it like normal slippers, don't care if it's wet or not, just walk only.

I saw a lot go shoeless and hug their birkens during rain, the what is the point u buy? Shoes should wear like a shoes.

When you buy expensive sandals like this you never want to go the place that you mention above.

Even you have Clark sandals you need to maintain it like leather shoes.

Get which part repaired? I know you can buy the shoe outsoles (black part) from them but they don't do repairs, you need to get a cobler to do this for you.

The footbed gets dirty (blackish) after a while but you can reduce it by washing/brushing it with a solution of some sort?
This is what I gathered from researching on the internet smile.gif

It's meant for indoor wearing. Mat saleh got carpet at home. Cushioning is practically non-existence. Only sohai wear them outdoor all day.

Even asadi slippers have better cushioning. All the hypes on Birkenstock , topkek.

Judging by all above ignorant negative comments, how many of you really owns a genuine pair remains to the question. Sour grapes. If u don't understand and can't afford the high price for such sandals, suggest u to dig some research before making a fool out of yourself.
Regarding the "this shoes meant for indoor" comment, I find it hilarious. No European slippers or sandals are specially made for indoor or outdoor purpose. Just wear it whenever and whenever u like. Birkenstock comfort emphasize on arch. It is design to fit perfectly on your feet. Not for cushioning purpose.

Extremely durable. It's not water proof. And most expensive shoes are not. Hot weather wise is also non-relevant. Don't forget, there are few months of summer all over the world. And the heat can be higher than Malaysia. Oil application, I haven't done it, so no comment on that one. It might help applying. But I had mine for 4 years and counting. Love it.

Yes, it is very durable. My first pair i wore it for 4+ years and the tread still got 75%. Now my 2nd pair already near 2 years. At first u will feel uncomfortable and a bit of hotness due to the cork, but after awhile it will be very comfortable and you wont go for other type of slippers. Trust me, it worth every penny of it.

Usually the sole tanggal from the cork base. But ours bought in Europe, dunno if same applies to those bought here.

Honestly not worth it la. Long lasting also how many pairs of slipper you can buy for that price? Slippers are not meant for you to give a fuck. With these you scared they get dirty la, cannot go hiking la, cannot leave at masjid la. Passing fad, like crocs.

Birkenstock is meant to be wore in door. They are very comfortable especially walking on carpet. This thing doesn't cost that much in its home country. When sampai malaysia jadi mercedez and every retard is wearing them outdoor not because they have the best cushion, but to show off that they can afford birkenstock.

Judging by all above ignorant negative comments, how many of you really owns a genuine pair remains to the question. Sour grapes. If u don't understand and can't afford the high price for such sandals, suggest u to dig some research before making a fool out of yourself.
Regarding the "this shoes meant for indoor" comment, I find it hilarious. No European slippers or sandals are specially made for indoor or outdoor purpose. Just wear it whenever and whenever u like. Birkenstock comfort emphasize on arch. It is design to fit perfectly on your feet. Not for cushioning purpose.

Usually the sole tanggal from the cork base. But ours bought in Europe, dunno if same applies to those bought here.

Honestly not worth it la. Long lasting also how many pairs of slipper you can buy for that price? Slippers are not meant for you to give a fuck. With these you scared they get dirty la, cannot go hiking la, cannot leave at masjid la. Passing fad, like crocs.

overrated slipper...

if using it daily, expect it to last less than a year.

dont buy it with a mindset that it will last forever.

the supporting arch is less effective than those at myfeet

buy it if you wanna be in fashion, just like them crocs..

fanbois will protect their brand of choice till the end of time just like android/ifags

I got one and I can tell you the repair thing is a gimmick la. My dog ate that shit and instead of clubbing it to death I basically got very proud as I always believe dogs should end up either dead or in the hot pot.

Its so hard, it forces your foot to stay straight, the comfort isn't there. And due to the hardness, its not even comfortable or fun to walk at faster speed.

I dint choose the Birkenstock , the Birkenstock choose me.

Hujan lebat gila in Tokyo Disneyland and since I dont want to waste my 1 day pass, I just brave through it. Back at the hotel, I asked the concierge to help buy a pair of slippers since my only pair of shoes is soaking wet and busuk. The concierge got me the standard Birkenstock for about 11K yen gg

Initially not much different from any slippers I have but now it kind of adjusted to my feet.

Mine tahan for 7-8 years liao!!!

one way to take care of this slipper is avoid getting it wet, that would spoil the birkie

treat ur birkie like a nice leather shoe but in a casual wear

flipflop r more for the wetmarket, beach and etc

just like ur clothes, u need a pair of flipflop for different occasion and birkie for another different occasion

NEVER CHOOSE TO WEAR BIRKIE WHEN IT IS RAINING OR WHEN U KNOW IT WILL MOST LIKELY GET WET

mine lasted for 7-8 years and counting. the soles grip is still good

i'm those who don't wear slipper or sandal since i was in secondary school. Solely shoes. I have been doing this for the past 10years.

but ever since i tried on birkenstock for the past 2 years, now i'm wearing it for most of the time/ocassion. Trust me, it is expensive but worth every penny of it.

Buy for the comfort not just bcoz it is birkenstock.

Mine tahan for 7-8 years liao!!!

one way to take care of this slipper is avoid getting it wet, that would spoil the birkie

treat ur birkie like a nice leather shoe but in a casual wear

flipflop r more for the wetmarket, beach and etc

just like ur clothes, u need a pair of flipflop for different occasion and birkie for another different occasion

NEVER CHOOSE TO WEAR BIRKIE WHEN IT IS RAINING OR WHEN U KNOW IT WILL MOST LIKELY GET WET

mine lasted for 7-8 years and counting. the soles grip is still good

selipar and avoid getting it wet.. dafuq doh.gif

now ayam understand why some ppl hold the birken in their hands and walk barefooted on rainy days.

initially i cannot fathom why ppl spend so much on such ugly pairs of selipar.. knowing about this water issue ayam lagi speechless..

anyways, birkenstocks are one of the easiest way to differentiate a malaysian from singaporeans here in SG laugh.gif

Someone Forward me this thread.. So here I am.

I used to think Birkenstock is so expensive. And I don't think I will get them..

But after I start selling ORIGINAL Birkenstock since 2015 (until now still selling) Hahaha.. I get to know the sandals in details and when they launch the EVA version .. EVA is very popular and So I've decided to get a pair of Gizeh EVA Red Color.

Why I decided to get them?

1. I sell Birkenstock so I think I should try them so I will know how it really feels to wear them

2. My old cheapo slippers spoiled very fast. All those Rm10 slipper spoil in few months.. yea I had problems with shoes -.- So I wanna try invest on a pair of slipper that will last longer.

3. My feet is sweaty and I can't wear those leather, cork or cloth type shoes/slipper. I need to wear those material that won't get smelly.

4. Since EVA is rubber and it can be wash.. can kena water and won't get smelly.. EVA is what I need.

So once I got my Gizeh Eva Red color.. On the 1st wear I could feel that it is very comfortable! I wear it with any clothes.. feeling cool at the same time.

Attached Image

I wore it for a year until 1 of my customer wanna buy my red pair.. sleep.gif I had to sacrifice my Pair because Red color was out of stock and she really want it and coincidencely same size with me..and my pair was still in very good condition so she agreed to get it in 2nd hand price.

But after I sold out the red color.. I got another pair of Gizeh Eva pink color instead and I've been wearing it until now.. Happy feet~!

Attached Image Attached Image

-------------

Anyway for those that afraid the shoe will get smelly and the Sole will turn black... Don't worry if u get EVA that won't happen.. haha.. only the cork type will. Oh but the EVA wordings at the sole will be dissapear after sometimes wearing depend on the feet.. Due to sweats and feet rubs again the sole.

i have flat feet and i find birkenstocks makes it even worse... as it causes even more severe overpronation for my case when i look at my heels from the mirror when testing it.... so better check properly weh.

for me i either pick selipar/shoes with super thin soles (barefoot feel) or with lots of supports like nike basketball shoes and asics gel kayano (recently felt that nmd is not bad as well)

i confirm its usefulness for a flat footer like me. after i wear birkenstock and change shoes to more support type for running shoes, my knee and lower back no more pain. Last time wear crocs will feel pain especially after standing for quite long.

Cos last time i owes got lower back pain, but go doctor do mri xray no slip disc, doctor say maybe becos muscle strain due to flat foot, ask me change to flat foot footwear.

Yes, it is very durable. My first pair i wore it for 4+ years and the tread still got 75%. Now my 2nd pair already near 2 years. At first u will feel uncomfortable and a bit of hotness due to the cork, but after awhile it will be very comfortable and you wont go for other type of slippers. Trust me, it worth every penny of it.

I owned 5 pairs of them. They are very durable, and they are meant for indoor. You can of course wear it anywhere you like, even go diving with it. Your money, your sandals. That thing is not designed for outdoor due to the non-existence cushioning and the material used. I lived in where it is made for more than a decade. and yes, there are sandals deigned for indoor and outdoor.

flipflop r more for the wetmarket, beach and etc

just like ur clothes, u need a pair of flipflop for different occasion and birkie for another different occasion

Birkenstock is meant to be wore in door. They are very comfortable especially walking on carpet. This thing doesn't cost that much in its home country. When sampai malaysia jadi mercedez and every retard is wearing them outdoor not because they have the best cushion, but to show off that they can afford birkenstock.

Same thing with Crocs slippers over conventional slippers.
They're expensive because Birkenstock is light and new.

When the copies start to get the design and idea,
you'll regret paying that much for the brand.

Take Adidas NMDs for example. Now in the market flooded with NMDs replicas which are equally light and comfortable for half if not a fraction of the price.

owned a pair of teva with Spider Rubber. Tested in river/stream really got grip on stone.
however.. due to malaysian weather the outsole separated sad.gif

I've been wearing Birkenstock for 3 years plus, every day (except I'm working). Durability wise I would say each pair will last me one year plus. Hope this helps

Keras is for arch support. For light European fella which usually they are, suitable for their support. N their body contour are better. U ask Malaysian to wear this? Walk a bit also cannot, must double park. This sandal is not suitable for long shopping journey for land whales.

Yes don’t buy Birkenstock if your bone density not good and strong. My Swiss friends are all light weight, carry big backpack at the back and could hike wearing sandals. They eat less and no issue. Kesian msian, because of branding. Just die die follow

U have to break them in. First time wear memang sakit because its hard and the arch contours. After ur feet n brikens break in...they're damn comfotable. U will feel wierd wearing other flat slippers after that. Not advised to kena water..because of the leather/suede. Feels geli wearing it wet. But didn't rosak la..just dry it slowly.
