Shoe stores in Virginia Beach, VA
Virginia Beach, VA 23451
How much money have I spent at this store? Enough to send several small children through at least two years of college. In state tuition, of course. Anyone who has bad knees should make an immediate start to Birkenstock Footprints in Hilltop East Shopping Center. Be there when they open tomorrow morning. My discovery of the Birkenstock store decades ago allowed me to throw away the hated knee braces that earlier orthopedists promised would help, but didn't. The shoes didn't make the pain go away. But they helped more than anything tried previously. One's foot sits differently in the footbed of these shoes, taking pressure off the knee joint. I discovered this miracle on my own, with no co-pay. The Hilltop East store introduced me to the fact that there were Birkenstocks, and other European brands, in every style. They aren't just clunky clogs and sandals. You can't imagine how many times I've heard "I can't believe those are Birkenstocks!!" At this store one isn't just a person who walks in and makes an impulse purchase. Their computer has a record of every shoe I've ever bought, including the size. It's extremely helpful when the European size of a previous purchase doesn't immediately come to mind. If you see something cute, buy it!! Some styles are offered for a limited time only. I've had people who admired my shoes go to the store hoping to buy the same style. They were very disappointed when told "discontinued". The shoes last almost forever depending on the level of care. A favorite pair can be sent off to be re-soled. Even though the shoes are pricey, the orthopedic benefits quite overshadow the cost. After all, it's about being able to walk. Also remember, they last forever. I've only thrown away a couple of pairs in decades. The great news is that I have new titanium knees that cost a whole lot more than the Birkenstocks. So you can take my place at the check out counter. You'll never regret it.
Super friendly staff! I wanted a new pair of Birkenstocks and they had exactly what I was looking for! The man helping me was very knowledgable and even after I had purchased the shoes we talked for a good 45 minutes. Would recommend to a friend
Drove from Richmond to Virginia Beach looking forward to purchasing a Birkenenstock sandal for my teenage daughter. Long trip, asked if we can use the restroom... The store owner was reluctant for us to use it and only wanted my 4 year old to use it so he won't pee on his floor. He says if people come to his store and ask to use his restroom first, they will not purchase. Maybe we won't purchase because you don't have our size or color or rude customer service. He didn't smile, was not really attentive, did not provide much options. Felt like we were shopping online. He didn't even pop up to check on us. At least we get more pop ups online. Other worker was very attentive to her two customers. Another customer walked in, he was not even greeted. Customer had to go find him for help. It wasn't even busy. We were one of two customers in there. Wow! Will not waste my trip there again. Birkenstock is a very good brand and long lasting and perhaps that is why he didn't care about providing great service to us because he is already making enough business from other people. Found a really nice pair there. Fits perfect. Will just have to order it online because I only went in to use the restroom.
This is a great shoe store. They carry several different brands along with lots of Birkenstocks, both women's and men's. The staff is very helpful and friendly.
Love this store so much! We actually live in SC, but we have reason to go through Virginia Beach every so often and when we do, my husband knows I'm going to want to make a stop at Birkenstock Footprints! He's never surprised when I ask. The last time we went was in late Sept. of 2014 and the woman who waited on us was so very kind. I had been trying to get my husband to try the sandals to help with his foot issues and she explained so much about the footbed and why they were so good for your feet that he finally took a chance and tried a pair. Needless to say, he bought a pair and I bought two. This is a great store with knowledgeable staff and I hope to get back there again soon! Thanks to the staff for being so helpful! :) Marjorie S.
Call me a dirty hippie, call me a lesbian, call me whatever the hell you want, but I have and forever will, love my Birks. This is obviously an emporium which sells my beloved shoes but they also carry other brands I didn't pay too much attention to. Anyway I came in here the other day to see if I could get my old Arizonas re-soled but unfortunately, they do not do this here. They refer you our to some shoe repair joint that was totally out of my way, so I just said screw it and went home. I almost bought another pair, but im pretty sure my husband would have thought about executing me for spending $120 on another pair of my "dike sandals" as he calls them.. Anyway, this place is awesome for new stuff. They have everything your BIrkenstock loving heart could ever desire, sandals, clogs, shoes, shwag.. you name it. The employees were super awesome too. Glad this place is here!
