I love Birkenstocks and have worn them for yrs. Worn Betulas for quite some time.
Anyone know if they are still made in China or Germany? Where was Stefan, any mention of him? I'm missing the 2 strap and 3 straps. I heard them say they are re-launching and they haven't been back in a year, but wonder why they are doing all slides with rhinestones, cutouts, etc. bejeweled stuff. I like plain basic shoes, nothing that draws attention to my feet....like their original but with a few splashes of color. Just had to ask what do you think of Betula? Thanks for your time.
I have worn Betula's for many years, but when they returned with the Today's Special and ALL the other styles, there was something missing....MY SIZE! Betula has always come in sizes 5-12, but this time they did not bring size 5 or 12. I need the 5 because the 6 is too big. I was very disappointed that I could not order any of them. Who thought it was a good idea to eliminate 2 whole size groups?? Oh, and Betula are made in China now. It's still the German designed footbed, but like everything else, they are being made in China.
I would also like to see some of the original designs as well, like the suede clogs and 2 strap designs.
I have posted under Betula Sizing so you might want to read that. Yep, box does say "made in China" as did tag on Roman sandals. Box also has info. about Germany. I appreciate the "bling" factor to go with DG2, etc. clothes. I hope they will address the sizing problems and also offer styles some of you like that don't have so much "bling." Overall, I am thrilled to see Betula back!
Glad to know that the sizing hasn't changed for betulas. i haven't ordered, but i'm hoping they are here to stay at hsn. thank you to everyone who was so kind to post their thoughts and helpful information. i appreciate it. let's hope they bring in more variety of sizes so everyone can enjoy these wonderful shoes.
I am so disappointed that the Betula sandals do not come in size 5. What happened? I purchased two pair of size 5 in the past and would like another pair for this spring in black. Who can help with this problem?
Betula's were on again today and still no size 5. HSN, please bring these back in size 5. I would love to order, but I can't wear the 6. I don't understand why you stopped offering the popular size 5. I hope you will reconsider in the future.
For the longest time only the upper was made in China- and the footbed in germany. Now the footbed is made in China too? On line it just says 'imported'. I've noticed a difference in the thickness of the cork, maybe that's why.
