Birkenstock® & Madewell Kairo Sandals

Birkenstock® & Madewell Kairo Sandals is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! Just got my kairo birkenstocks in white patent! I love them. They are different than other birkenstocks - the white sole and white patent leather. Great summer staple to wear with jeans and skirts! I normally do not wear birkenstocks bit this is my third pair this summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! Birkenstocks seem to be polarizing; people either hate them or love them. If you're in the love camp, these Kairos would be a good addition to your shoe wardrobe. I got them in the white patent and think they look great with just about any of my minimalist, clean-lined clothes, but they'd look just as great with more girly, flowy items. I wear a size 7.5-8 in U.S./38 Euro and ordered the 7 from Madewell (which is a 38) and they fit perfectly. They're wear-all-day comfortable and solidly made, so you really can't go wrong with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish & Comfortable I love Birkenstocks and have owned many pairs over the years. It was always a tough decison on what color to choose and which style but when I saw the white patent leather it was a no brainer, it is an option that will go with everything. What is also great about Birkenstocks the size always fits right and the shoes molds to your foot for great support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from stylish and functional This sandal is very comfortable and very cute. I love anything that can go from city to country— and back again—and this is a prime example. I've worn these with palazzo pants, skinny jeans, maxis... and so far they are super versatile. Today I tramped through the woods with them and I imagine they're great at the beach, too. You really can't go wrong with a stylish and utterly functional sandal like this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from got so much compliment for these! I'm getting countless compliment with these... they can be dressed up and down and pair nicely with jeans, shorts, or skirts.The patented leather gives the shoes a chic look when compared to the normal Birk. I do find the shoes running a little bigger and I'd order 1/2 size down if given the option. Also it's a little annoying to undo and buckle the straps each time I'm taking them off and putting them back on. but overall, I'm very happy with the purchase and will definitely recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from are they really patent leather? I recently purchased these and very delighted with the product! However, I quickly learned that these are not patent leather, as stated on Madewell's product description. I hope that the description can be correctly reflected.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hmm... I purchased a different size online as the size I purchased in store did not fit. The Birks arrived in an unmarked cardboard box, not the authentic Birk box and no Birk tags like what I purchased in store. In comparing the two pairs, in store versus online there were very distinct and noticeable differences in the Birk footbed writing as well as the leather. As well as an odd odor. Thinking maybe it was a fluke, I went through a reorder and again, the same unmarked no tag Birks that were very different than my trusted authentic pair for reference that I had. I returned both pairs hoping to find the item in store with the proper packaging to no avail. Maybe, I'll try my luck again online as sizes keep coming back in stock, ugh. Madewell may want to check on this with their warehouse or supplier as counterfeits are commonplace and the black Birks not being a true exclusive in the market.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from extremely painful and uncomfortable These sandals arrived as cute as they looked online, but as another person mentioned, they are extremely painful and uncomfortable. I was excited when I received them, but highly disappointed when the soles and tstraps caused so much pain to my feet. I have other Birks, so I thought it was just an issue of wearing them in. But after the third time, there was no way my feet could withstand another day in these. I'm not sure if the quality was compromised because it was a partnership (and not solely a Birk product), but I wish these sandals turned out as hoped when I purchased them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Uncomfortable I never write reviews but after being promised that these were the most comfortable shoes I would ever own, I felt like I had to let others know how uncomfortable these shoes really were. First of all, the T-strap rubs against the inside of your toes, which is a terrible place for a blister, and never stops no matter how many times you wear them. The first couple times I wore them the sole was also painful and it felt like it had re-shaped the arch of my foot. Maybe another style of Birks would be better but this one is just poorly designed.
