They have Betula sandals at Sam's club. Oh I was monstrously peeved - my son got some (the basic guys two strappers), but they had absolute not one in my size (36) but they have some really cute ones that I may have to go in search of. The thong kind (is that what you call it when it has the toe thingy?) I really want them.

My betula clogs from last fall were winners. I will definitely buy more.

I've never tried the Betula/Birki's. Are they comfortable? They look really stiff to me. :thinking:

Well all birkies are a little stiff at first - my son bought the real thing clogs though, then tried on the betulas 2 days later and said they feel just the same. I have birkie sandals too from years ago. They have blue leather straps (got them on the clearance aisle in germany years ago)....I wear them with socks as slippers in my house.

I never thought I would prefer another shoe over my birki's. I have 8 pair of various Birki's (sandals, clogs, etc.) Then I found Croc's and haven't worn anything but those and one pair of sandals since I got them! They are the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn!

I've never been able to find betulas in my size either...I've heard they carry them at payless but when I go, they have very few of them...I love my birkenstocks but they are VERY stiff at first...my fav's are the ones with three straps across the foot--open back.

I'll have to watch too...my husband has a banana when he sees the credit card bill though...they are pretty expensive...I just keep telling him that most people buy three pairs of sandles over the time that I have my birkenstocks.

You can find them on QVC and HSN (Home Shopping Network). They both sell them.

I ordered a pair last year from QVC but they had to go right back. My toes are too long for them!! :oops: I was very disappointed. But I have since found similiar ones that fit me just fine and I bought two pair when I found those. I hate shopping for shoes.

OOH, my favorite!

I have some messed up feet from my rheumatoid, and Birks are the only thing I can wear and walk in without feeling like I"m tipping over.

I just got some in Lancaster this weekend at the QVC outlet for $50.

Yay birks!

Betulas are made by Birkenstock, but are a bit less expensive, and are sold on QVC and at Sam's. They say they have the same "fussbet" (footbed) as the Birks.
