Top critical review

I recently researched the best footwear for the foot issue metatarsalgia, which I suffer with. Birkenstock’s are supposed to help people who have this condition, as well as other foot problems.
But I have an issue. I ordered my size, which came no problem. But it’s like trying to walk around the house with a canoe strapped to each foot! They’re massive!!! In fact, they are that big, you could strap one shoe to each end of a pole and go sailing in a real canoe!
Don’t get me wrong, these are fairly well made, and if they were fitted properly they might have been good for my feet. But only if the buckles were fitted properly! When I first put them on, I was cut by a sharp piece of metal sticking through the strap from the buckle!!
So, if you order a completely different size to yours (just guess, as it will be closer than your actual size) and you get lucky and they fit properly, and if they don’t shred a layer of skin from the top of your foot, these might be a decent buy. But these have already made my feet worse.
