Ordered Birks

Posted by john h on 12/07/02 at 16:35 (102118)

Just ordered a pair of Birkenstock Maderia shoes. At my local shoe store the price was $160 plus 6% sales tax. From the German web site they were $91.60, no sales tax and free shippng. They have changed up there web page some and are offering free shipping (4-5 weeks).

hi John.

That's a great price even in USD. I can't find anything lower than $189 and that's CAD before 14.5% taxes added. Do you have the full website address so I can have a looksie.

thanks

I think this might be the URL he was talking about:

http://www.birkenstock-cn.de/

They've changed the look of the site since the last time I was there.

John, you may have to keep after this firm. A friend of mine in England is still waiting for a pair of Birks she ordered from them (on my recommendation, alas) last May. They have never arrived, and they have never replied to her emails. That may be a fluke, but make sure they don't charge you before you get them.
