Reviews for Women's Cushionaire Leah Cork footbed Sandal with +Comfort
People say Cushionaire is really similar to Birkenstock.
Great value but size up if you are a half-size
I wear 8 1/2 wide, size 39 in Birkenstocks. The 9 wide in this shoe almost exactly matches my Birkenstock Papillio giza-style thong sandals footbed, size 39. I bought these to replace my beloved Betula sandals of the same design which are trashed. Amazing comfort right out of the box. The pleather straps are not very thick, but they have soft flannel backing. The soft footbed is what I love about them. Also love the stone color for summer. Will be wearing them around the house as slippers. Probably wouldn't last long as outdoor hiking shoes, but hey at $25 they are replaceable.
Similar to my Birks
I wanted a Birkenstock to wear indoors and saw these Cushionaire dupes. I ordered the Brown color, and the style similar to my light-color Birks. Based on other reviews, I ordered one size up getting size 8 instead of 7.5. The Cushionaire has a cushion footbed and extra cushion at the heel, unlike the Birks. It took a few minutes to get used to that, and now find it helps ease my lower back pain. I am happy these serve my intended purpose.
Pretty impressed with these sandals!
I'm so impressed with these sandals! I was debating buying the Birkenstock Gizeh's, but I just bought another pair of shoes and I felt guilty spending so much on shoes in one day :) Still, I love this casual style and wanted to try it out, and I figured at this price why not?! The quality is so much better than I would have expected for the cost, and the footbed is SO comfortable for me right out of the box. These do not look like a cheap imitation of Birks at all- I really don't think anyone will have any idea they aren't the real thing. I chose a 7 and it's pretty true to size for me. I could almost go to a 6.5, but I'm worried my foot wouldn't be cradled in the foot-bed correctly anymore if I size down. So I personally feel these are TTS, despite many others here saying size up. Shoes are just different for everyone. Very happy with this purchase.
I love that Birkenstock-type sandals are trending again as I was a big fan in the 80's. The Cushionaire sandals are a comfy, affordable option. I purchased the "gold" which is really rose gold. Though the top of the sandal is composed of a fabricated material, the footbed is suede. I absolutely love the cushion in the footbed. I have arthritis in my big toes and years of running have taken a toll on the toes on my right foot. I have such a hard time finding comfortable shoes that are also somewhat stylish. These sandals are a big win for me. I wear a 9.5 or 10 in running shoe, but I thought I could get away with a 9 since the 9.5 was not available. They are a teensy bit short but still very comfortable. In fact, they are so comfortable that I just ordered a similar style in blue. I recommend!
Comfortable and look very nice on feet.
WOW! Just wow! I’ve read very good reviews, but for this price I wouldn’t be surprised of disappointment. But I’m exited! The quality if perfect, and footbed is SOOOOO comfortable! I was a little skeptical about that plastic thing between toes, but it’s perfect too, smooth and comfortable. This shoes the same level of quality and comforting as Birkenstock. Don’t hesitate, buy them! I highly recommend them! P.S. I bought recently another brand of footbed sandals because of footbed and because of top leather, and it was on sale. Terribly uncomfortable footbed, wear them on more 1 hour is challenge. Cushionair I can have on me 5-6 hours. Ver comfortable. The top is not leather, but it’s soft and for comfortable sandals fake leather is acceptable.
Great fit, quality and style for the money.
I ordered these in a 7 1/2 even though I very typically wear a size 8. I have the cushion air sandals that look like the more traditional Birkenstocks with just the two strap and buckles in a size 8. The very comfortable and I absolutely love them however, after considerable where I feel that they just flopped around too much and I really didn’t wanna have to research the buckles. I don’t have overly narrow or wide feet I think my feet are pretty average so I think I’m going to be really happy with the fit that the 7 1/2 is going to offer. I just got them today and have worn them for a couple hours so far and plan to do an updated review after they are broken in.
First of all, somehow, I ordered a size larger than I wear, but they fit perfectly. These are extremely comfortable, so much so that I put them on straight out of the box and I've worn them hours every day. The only thing is, if you have bunions, the ridge on the edge of the sole can be very irritating. I tried Birkenstocks and absolutely loved the look. I tried the breaking in period, but my iliac crests, hips, feet, and back hurt so back after the 5th day that I had to send them back. I have feet that are not flat, according to my podiatrist, but they look flat. Arch supports actually hurt my feet. These Women's Cushionaire Leah Cork footbed Sandal with +Comfort are exactly what I've been looking for. I love them.
I got these because I love Birkenstocks but they are pricey and uncomfortable to break in. These were amazing right out of the box. I am a size 9M and these were a tad snug so I just adjusted the buckle one notch and that was all I needed to do. Perfect width and length and so very comfortable. No breaking in needed. I am eager to see how they stand up because I plan to pretty much live in them.
Softer than Birks
As others have described, these may run a little on the small side, both in length and width. I am usually a 6.5 or 7 in shoes, and wear a 36 in Birkenstocks. I ordered these in a 7W and the length is ok but they are still a little narrow but work. Other than that, the footbed is super soft, more so than my Birkenstock Arizona Soft footbed sandals. While the sole appears to be genuine suede, the upper is vegan and maybe not the best quality so I don’t know how long these will last — but for now they are pretty darn comfortable.
