When it comes to treating your toes, it doesn't get much better than classic Birkenstocks — they're incredibly comfy and supportive...but they're not cheap. Have no fear: Amazon shoppers are a discerning bunch, and they've found the ultimate lookalike: The Funkymonkey EVA flip flops — one of the mega-retailer's top-selling sandals. And guess what? It's on sale starting at just $19.

Whether you wear them inside or out, we have a feeling they'll be the ones you grab most. (Doctors agree that even in the comfort of home, it's better to wear some kind of footwear than to go barefoot.)

“When walking barefoot on hardwood, cement, stone or ceramic tile, there is really nothing to absorb the shock between you and the ground,” New York City-based podiatrist Dr. Jacqueline Sutera says. “Over time, this behavior can deteriorate your fat pad, which serves as the foot’s natural cushion. Without this fat, you are literally walking or running on skin and bone.”

A deteriorated fat pad can cause serious long-term issues. So why not step into something that's both protective and extremely comfortable?

“I started wearing them around the house as slippers and they're so comfortable I can see myself using them every day,” one shopper shared. “It's like my feet are getting hugged.”

"Cute Birks dupe," said a fan. "Light and comfy."

“I'm amazed,” another added. “Super comfortable too — I'm talking serious comfort here.... Durable, easy to clean, wear them anywhere...brunch, pool, beach, park, house...bed? I don’t know, they're comfy. Haha. Will likely buy more in different colors. Yassss.”

Shoppers with plantar fasciitis particularly love these supportive sandals. One writes: “Wow! I'm really impressed. They're super soft like a yoga mat...I put these on and wore them out shopping for lawn and garden items, then planted the goods in them and no foot pain at all. This is awesome since I'm a little prone to plantar fasciitis.”

"I ordered these for a beach trip after deciding I was tired of flip-flops," says one happy shopper. "At the same time, I also ordered Birkenstocks to wear around the house. After wearing these sandals for the beach trip, I decided to return the Birkenstocks — they were not even close to being as comfortable as these sandals and they cost much more. I love that these sandals stay securely on while walking (even in sand) and the molded foot bed has arch support. I couldn't be happier with my great find and I will order more colors soon."

Another reviewer, who uses the headline "Awesome for achy feet," says: "I love these shoes! I've been wearing another brand, not at all similar to these, for many years due to arthritis is my feet. I am pretty sure these surpass the comfort of my old brand. I will be buying more very soon!"

“I have worn these every day since they arrived!” yet another fan reports. “I bought them to be like house slippers/shoes that could also be washed easily. But I have found myself wearing them out to run errands because they are so comfortable! I have bought them for my mom and sister for a little gift because I wanted to share how awesome they are! I will def be buying another couple of pairs. They would be great for gardening, pool, beach, boat and more!!!”
