Reviews for FUNKYMONKEY Women's Comfort Slides Double Buckle Adjustable EVA Flat Sandals
People say Funkymonkey is really similar to Birkenstock.
Light & cute
I don’t know why I bought Birkenstocks before!! These are way better and doesn’t cost as much. It’s light and cute! Runs a bit large tho. I wear EU size 37, so it’s 6.5 or 7 in the US. I got these in size 6 and fits perfectly. So it’s about 0.5-1 size smaller. Very happy with the purchase. I’ll get different colors :)
BUY. THE. SHOE!!!
For what I paid for these shoes, I did not expect much beyond the fun style. Instead, I’m pretty sure I just found my favorite summer shoe! These are insanely comfy and pretty darn cute too! They sort of feel like the materials that Crocs are made of, and look just like the Birkenstock shoe of the same material, except with no name printed on the side. (I prefer the look of the sandal without the name, personally.) If you’re sensitive to chemical smells, open them outside and leave them there a while. They come in a sealed plastic bag and the odor is strong at first, and I’m not even sensitive to that normally. I wear a true 9.5 with a medium to narrow width and the 10 fits perfectly. I tightened one strap a notch and it’s great. I feel like it would fit any width foot thanks to the adjustable strap. There is support in the middle of the foot all the way across, not just in the arch. I suffer from plantar fasciitis and I expect this will actually help that. But mostly it’s just a super soft waterproof shoe that will go everywhere with me except maybe a formal dinner! Then again, if the dress were long enough, I might even consider sneaking them in... LOL. Buy the shoe, you won’t regret it.
I ordered these for a beach trip after deciding I was tired of flip-flops. At the same, I also ordered Birkenstocks to wear around the house. After wearing these sandals for the beach trip, I decided to return the Birskenstock sandals - they were not even close to being as comfortable as these sandals and they cost much more. I love that these sandals stay securely on while walking (even in sand) and the molded foot bed has arch support. I couldn't be happier with my great find and I will order more colors soon.
Secretly love them!
I guess I should start off by saying that my husband HATES these shoes! He thinks they look ridiculous so if you are looking to impress a guy, these are probably not the shoes for you! Onto the pros, though. I am a kindergarten teacher and with in-person instruction coming back in to stay soon, I needed a pair of easy shoes I could throw in the wash with some bleach and a few towels on the weekends because let’s face it, kids are germy (I would know, I have some) and I don’t want to bring any nastiness home to my infant. Enter these shoes! Friends, let me tell you...I secretly LOVE these shoes and I cannot admit it to my husband or my friends because I am not within the generation who thinks Birkenstock’s are cool again and let’s face it, I probably look a little ridiculous wearing them but they are AMAZING! They are comfortable and true to size (after a couple babies I lean more toward a 7.5 but the 7 fits perfectly) and they are super lightweight. Think a really light flip flop. It’s like you are wearing no shoes at all! I loved them so much I just ordered a black pair as well and will most likely order a pair for every day of the week! They come in so many colors, the options are endless!!!
These puppies will surprise you!
Initially I bought these to be waterproof Birkenstock-style sandals. Upon opening the package and pulling out the items I thought, "Oh NO! Stupid ultra light pair of Crocs!" They were so light they couldn't possibly offer any support... and yet: THEY DID! They are very light, but due to some magic (scientific) process, a change in density in different parts of the sandal results in a form fitting footbed with a little arch support. They feel like a dream; nice textures and smoothness-es, actual working buckles, and they are waterproof and float. The fit might run a little larger than the charts says. I wear a size US Women's 8 and chose the corresponding size from the chart. They are kind of big, both in length and width. The good news is that the buckles work and tightening the straps helped a lot. However, sweaty bare feet tend to slip around or fall out of the shoe. For the price, color, and intended use, there was better-than-expected support and, overall, the sandals really impressed me. I will update/edit my review if the shoes end up breaking down. If you're worried about fit, you could always order 2 sizes and keep the one that fits. Return postage, if paid by you, is less than US$0.35. Actually, I think I will order a different color in the smaller size and see how they work!
Great support sandals!! My mom’s friend recommended these shoes to her bc of the support. She now has them, my sister, and now me as well. I’m normally a 7-7 1/2. I originally ordered a 7 and returned for the 8, which fit me perfectly. I used to wear the shade and shore version of these sandals from target, but my brother’s dog got ahold of them, so I needed a new pair and had tried my mom’s on before. These are softer (I feel like the soften with wear) than the target ones. In my opinion they are more narrow too. Where as the shade and shore do remind me more of the width of my actual Birkenstock’s. I hope any of that info helps!
Fit as expected - way more comfy than expected
I was kind of surprised when I opened package, they looked and felt so cheap. HOWEVER, as soon as I put them on I was surprised by how much support they had and how comfortable they were. Honestly, unless you are way up close to them no one can tell how 'cheap' they look. Wearing them out I have gotten several compliments and questions as to wear I purchased them....I think assuming they were the more expensive Birkenstock version. I actually got them super dirty one day. I used some dawn dish soap, a little brush, and some water and they looked brand new again with minimal effort.
Glad I Bought Them!
I wanted to buy some high end designer black Birkenstocks but couldn't pull the trigger because they were stupid expensive. So I thought I would try these reasonably priced rubber versions (the matte black) and I am so glad that I did. They look GREAT and are extremely light in weight and very comfortable to walk in . Love the fact that I don't have to worry about them getting wet and this definitely satisfied my desire for the high end designer version ! Couldn't be happier with this purchase.
These are a must have for summer!
These look just like Birkenstocks, but a fraction of the price! So comfortable as well!!! At first the arch support felt like a lump under my foot, very prominent. But, as I wore them more and the material started to “mold” and soften around my foot, these have easily become my most comfortable pair of sandals. I bought them with the intention to replace my house slides, but these are so comfortable I wear them everywhere!! Foot bed is wide but the straps are adjustable, if needed for narrow feet. The material feels much like Crocs. I’m a half size (7.5) and went down to a 7 and they are a perfect fit. These are a must have for summer!
Old vs new B style - definately get the old for a more ergonomic birkenstock footbed
I couldn't find any clear comparison so I purchased both the old style and the new B style in black. I am usually between a 9 and 9.5 or between euro 40 and 41 and I sized up to a 10 based on other reviews which was a perfect fit. I would say they run about half to 3/4 of a size short. Both were stamped with "41" on the sole for those wondering about corresponding euro sizing. The new B style (left in pictures) had better traction and smoother outer uppers without plastic molding seams. However, the old style has a much more supportive footbed with similar toe bar, metatarsal arch support (the ball people in other reviews are complaining about), and heel cup to the birkenstock Arizona EVA which they are imitating. The old style is slightly softer than the similar birkenstock with less need to break them in. If you are not used to wearing this type of supportive footbed, it can take some time for your feet to get used to it. The new B style lacks support and is mushy. I tend to get plantar fasciitis and I found that it shifted my weight to my heels which was painful. The new B's are getting returned. No idea on longevity - if they break, I will update review. Funky monkey - Please please offer the old style in the light brown copper color!!! Also, why is 10 (which is really closer to 9) the largest size offered? Please extend the range!
More comfy than Birkenstock
I love that these are less than half the cost of plastic Birkenstocks, and twice as comfortable. They are awesome beach, pool, river, or tool around the house shoes. This is my second pair. I’d say they run big, as I normally wear a 6.5/7 and a 6 works freest for me. I have high arches and these a comfortable to wear all day. Durable enough for the cost (if you wear daily, they’ll last a year).
Better than Birks
Much better than Birks! My Birkenstocks always cracked by my big toe after a few wears and the bottoms wore out really fast causing me to slip on wet ground. Writing this after 6mo of wear and tear and the bottoms and toe area are still as good as day one. Will definitely purchase again
I bought these as yard shoes
I bought these “ Birkenstock “ looking plastic shoes to go out and water and do around in my yard. But they are cute and so comfortable that I tend to wear them out to shop or visit and sometimes as slippers. So obviously I am loving these shoes. I have now bought them in a bright Red color and they just scream CUTE. Super comfy and so cute. That is what you get with these little shoes.
I was unsure whether these shoes would be comfortable and wearable in a variety of situations. They are lightweight, flexible, stay on your feet, and adjustable. Adjustability is important if one foot is wider than the other. The material is soft and strong. Unlike the classic Birkenstocks, there is no cork base to crack and break apart. Excellent value for the price.
Love them so much I bought a second pair!
I wanted to buy some high end designer black Birkenstocks but couldn't pull the trigger because they were stupid expensive. So I thought I would try these reasonably priced rubber versions (the matte black) and I am so glad that I did. They look GREAT and are extremely light in weight and very comfortable to walk in . Love the fact that I don't have to worry about them getting wet and this definitely satisfied my desire for the high end designer version ! Couldn't be happier with this purchase. UPDATE: I bought a second pair in a different color (khaki green) and couldn't be happier. I am a size 7.5 and got the 7 which were a perfect fit for me. They are super comfortable and really practical. Funny how a shoe that we used to all laugh at is now worn by many a fashionista and thought to be chic!
OK, so I am a hard-core Birkenstock girl! I didn't have high hopes for these, but I needed a pair that still had support without the cork footbed. It rains A LOT in Central Fla in July - Sept and my expensive Birkenstocks got rained on one too many times! So I set out in search of fake birks that I could slip on easily and that are waterproof. For the price, I decided to give these a try. I have wide feet and always must order a wide or shoes typically do not fit. These fit! Yay! I did have to loosen the buckle a smidge, but they work. I will say that in Birks, I typically order a 9.5. I ordered a 10 and was worried they'd be too big. They are not big!!! They barely fit around my foot - any smaller and I'd have had to return them. But they do fit somewhat snugly, and that actually feels pretty good. They expand under your weight, and they are so soft you can feel them expanding! I'm not used to that, but it doesn't bother me. Overall, they seem terrific! I'm excited to have a new pair I can wear when I know it's going to rain, and also wear comfortably around the house. Excellent value for the price.
Cute and easy
These were great for about 40 days, then they broke, but it's not their fault. I took them off by the poolside, and some kid came by and violently tripped onto/into my shoes (the kid was fine), broke the buckle on my right shoe, and then walked away. As you may have noticed, I'm still not over it LOL. I taped the buckle (super classy) and they're holding up. About a week after that, I had another incident where I tripped and did the thing where the front of your shoe folds under, and it tore my shoe (same shoe with the broken buckle) but it's not very noticeable -yes, I'm still wearing them. If I'd had Birkenstocks, I probably would've taken better care of them, and hopefully, they wouldn't have been as susceptible to damage by errant children. However, for $20, these are really great. I'll probably buy another pair.
This is my second pair
This is my second pair. I bought the first pair a couple of years ago and loved them. They are comfortable and inexpensive. I like the shape of these a lot more than the birkenstock brand plastic sandals. My one big complaint is the material seems to have changed. The original pair I bought were a more rigid type of plastic material similar to crocs, these new ones are super soft like a yoga mat material. Due to their super soft and stretchy material I've tripped over the toe getting bent back under my feet while walking quickly. I don't think I'd buy them again because of this new material.
Decent house shoe for the warmer months.
These lasted a year, and then developed a split on the right lateral side close to the front buckle. They were my go-to house shoes. I did not wear them outside. Reasonably comfortable for house shoes. They are not Birkenstocks, but, for the price, and, for what I wanted them for, they worked out just fine. I am about to order another pair.
Amazing - I’ve been recommending them to everyone
I get complimented on these shoes every time I wear them! I bought them to see if I like them before buying Birkenstocks and if Birkenstocks are as comfy as these, I’ll def be buying them. Get these shoes!!
