Oh how I wish I could wear those cute strappy sandals but its Birkis for me also.

6-7 years ago developed bone spur rt. foot and one developing on the left. Xray showed spur on underside of heel at faschia insertion site....caused from foot flattening down the arch and stretching the faschia.....my podiatrist said I could have cortisone shots but that would probably be temporary and painful or eventually surgery but first try a pair of birkenstocks and see if it helps as she herself had a spur and it helped her......it worked, took a few months and I don't know if the spurs are still there or not but have had no pain since.

Downside, burkis or walking shoes with high arch support are all I can wear now.

My first Birkis looked like the hippy shoes of the '70's ....but at least they are making them with a little more style now and more colors available.
