When I zoom in on the 4th picture of this shoe, I see the marking for a narrow Birkenstock. When the "foot" on the footbed is solid (filled in) it is a narrow footbed. When the "foot" on the footbed is outlined (not filled in) it is a regular width. Are the shoes you are offering marked with the solid foot or the outlined foot? That would clear up once and for all the Birkenstock narrow/regular width question and we could all purchase with comfort :) Thank you!
glad to see these actually said made in Germany,since some don't say that. They will not bend enough for a comfortable walk. If I could get someone else to break them in, I could wear them....

Questions & Answers
I apologize for the confusion. We checked our stock and can confirm that this item is in fact narrow.
Is there a way to contact a supervisor? I am frustrated at the inability to get an answer, and this is not an acceptable level of service. 1. Birkenstock makes two footbeds: narrow and regular. 2. NONE of the information on the page specifies which footbed it is. One would assume that means regular 3. HOWEVER, one of the reviewers said she received the narrow footbed. Not that the shoe runs narrow, but that is is the Birkenstock narrow footbed. 4. I would like an official answer on which footbed overstock is offering. IF I order this shoe, will I get narrow or regular? 5. The correct answer will not tell me to check the size guide and will not tell me that customer reviews say the shoe runs narrow. The correct answer is either a) yes, this is the Birkenstock narrow footbed or b) this is not the Birkenstock narrow footbed.

Birkenstock makes two footbeds: narrow and regular. Which footbed are these? This is a different question than whether they run narrow according to the reviews. Instead, I'm interesting in finding out if I order this shoe, as the one reviewer experienced, I will in fact get a narrow footbed.
