The Starling Cheetah was my first pair of Birdies. I waited over a month to decided to order them because of the cost and being disappointed with other shoe brands. When they arrived and I opened the package I was thrilled! The quality was beautiful. When I put them on my feet, I swear I heard Angels singing! Yes! They are that comfortable!

The Starling Birdies are so comfortable that I own them in multiple colors. Felt so confident about those that the first time I wore them was for a full day of walking around the city, and they did not disappoint! Perfect sizing, no break in time and so very stylish!

These shoes are amazingly stylish and comfortable. One of my classmates in my doctoral program introduced them to me and I now own three pairs, personally! I recently wore them to a Mother’s Day brunch with my four sisters and our mom and they loved them! I went online and ordered six pair for each one of them…and an extra pair for me! I highly recommend these shoes for all women to wear to any ev... Read more
