    Like all Birk's, a bit larger than the size chart says, but that's fine because the break-in effectively makes it smaller but deeper. Also: they are not kidding when they say a Birk Regular width is a US "Wide" but that's part of why I buy Birk's: no need to upsize for my fat feet. I was initially concerned that the ankle strap would be a chore to get on and off, but they wisely put a hinge on the inside rear that makes it possible to slip them off and on without undoing the buckle. An excellent sandal for activity that needs better foot stability than most Birk's.

    After many failed attempts trying to replace my favorite most beloved Birks (over 10 years old), finally success with the Rio. I have tried different Birkenstock brands (Betula, Papillio, etc.) and styles and materials and lengths and widths and foot beds, and was starting to think that maybe I would never find other Birkenstock sandals that would work for me. Too long, too short, too narrow, too wide. The Rio worked for my just about size 9 duck feet (wide across the toes, narrow heels) in a 39 regular (not narrow - despite the fact that all my other Birkenstocks are have been narrows). I wore them right out of the box on a Disney World trip with no regret, no blisters, nothing but happy feet. I wanted a more feminine style and the Rio are nicely styled and flattering. Absolutely satisfied. Would order another color if one was offered. Also worth noting: this is my fifth pair made with Birko-Flor and it is great wears well and feel soft.

    These sandals are cute! They are also very comfortable! They are not real leather, which was what I wanted. They do run big. I always always wear a 7.5 in all shoes; however, with these a 37 worked for me which is indicated to be 6/6.5.

    I love Birkenstocks! I have had plantar fasciitis, and use Birkenstock inserts in all of my shoes to help support my high arches. I have several pair of Arizona, but wanted a somewhat dressier version with an ankle strap. These are fantastic. Although I sometimes buy a wide in other shoes, I bought both the regular and narrow widths to try with this style. The narrow was perfect. So these do run wide. I've read some reviews that say this style can be unsnapped from behind so you don't have to buckle the ankle strap every time you put on the shoes. Not so with my pair. But the buckle is very easy to work with. Love these sandals. Wore for hours walking around right out of the box!

    Love the ankle strap- they won't come off while walking! These fit perfectly after a day or two of breaking them in and they're also really cute.
