Hi, Debi! Go to http://www.birkenstockexpress.com for one site. I have ordered from this one before.

Also, if you want to order from Germany (cheaper, but of course takes longer to arrive), here is the site:

Birks are expensive, but for many of us, they have been life-savers! They are well-made shoes with more arch support and better construction than most other shoes I have worn.

Good luck!
Suzanne :)

Unfortunately the german Birkenstock site is next to useless if a person is trying to locate a product by either name or product code. I went looking for the Blue Footbed which I already own. It is 'The Blue Footbed' product code 011002. Their site gives me a choice of the 'Blue Footbed Sport', code 01100 or the 'Blue Footbed classic', code 01000. Neither product has a picture, so I can't compare the two. In fact, none of the pictures are available on this site. The prices are great, assuming you can figure out what the heck you are buying!
My experience with Birkenstock has been strictly one of trial and error. I now firmly believe that they want it that. More repeat business from pilgrims searching for the holy grail.

Hi Debi, the second site is where I got my shoes last year, but you can check both sites for prices. I found the site a little hard to figure out but that is just me. duh.

good luck.

For Birkenstock customers, Footprints is a very good company to buy from. They specialize in Birkenstocks and also sell Dansko. They often have sales with very good prices and also sell 'seconds' or 'irregulars'. In those cases, the shoe structure is fine, but there might be a minor cosmetic flaw that they will describe to you in detail. It is a place to save some money on these two brands of shoes and they are very good people to do business with. You might try their website, http://www.footprints.com .
