These shoes are by far the best sandals you can get for your feet! I have worn Birkenstocks since high school, so 15 years now, and I worked for a Birkenstock store for a year. Often, customers would come in requesting that I fit them in their first pair of Birkenstocks, at the order of their podiatrist. These are orthopedic so they support your feet in the proper way and these are the shoes that most every podiatrist agrees people should wear. For those of you getting a pair of Birkenstocks for the first time, there are a few things to be aware of. Sizing is little different since you are in a European size. I am a solid 8 in US sizing, but when I wear the Arizona style Birkenstock I have to get a size 38 (European 7) and when wearing the Gizeh with the toe piece I size up one size in order for it to fit properly, so I wear a 39 in the Gizeh. Also, it does take time to adjust to the toe piece but it should not be painful as some reviews have mentioned. If you are in the correct size, this should not bother you that much, especially if you are used to flip-flops. Another thing to note is that there are three different footbeds to choose from. Papillio Sandals have the smallest amount of arch support, Birkenstocks have medium arch support and Tatamis have the highest arch support, so one footbed might work better for you than another. I can wear the Papillio and the Birkenstock, where as Tatami is slightly too high for me, but people with an extremely high arch love Tatamis. After some time the footbed actually forms and molds to your foot. This is a very cool process because it goes from a completely flat shoe that anyone can wear to one that over time only you can wear because it takes on the shape of your individual foot and another person would not be comfortable in it. And lastly, in order to keep the cork shiny, looking new and protected, you can get cork life from the Birkenstock website. You would use this every few months depending on how often you wear your sandals. Just as any Birkenstocks last forever! But, if you ever need your sandals repaired, a Birkenstock store in your area may have trained staff who can replace any part of the sandal, including the footbed, toepiece, sole, and leather lining. So I do hope this helps any of you new to Birkenstock on sizing and keeping your Birkenstocks nice and new looking for years to come! The one and only complaint I have for the Gizeh is that I wish it could be worn in winter, but unfortunately, in Indiana that just is not possible!

Great look, but totally uncomfortable - LOVE the look of this sandal, but it has a fatal flaw: the hard plastic thong between the toes...

I love Birkenstocks. These Gizeh are very comfortable. I have back pain from time to time, and I need to wear comfortable shoes not to worsen it (papillo line does not offer enough support for me). I bought silver, and its an interesting shade that sometime looks greenish depending on the light. They are quite elegant, and can be worn with a skirt.

I ordered these sandals to wear on weekends and at work with sundresses. When they came I wore them all day at work and got a blister under my toe from the strap. Was surprised since I am used to wearing flip flops. I guess I should have taken advice on breaking them in. I also wanted brown and ordered toffee from the picture which are actually a golden brown rather than chocolate brown. I will try thrm again after my blister heals.

I've worn these for years and love them, have 3 pair currently....HOWEVER, I have just discovered that they are the very cause of my toes and parts of my foot going numb. I used to practically live in these as they are great stabilizers for your feet. I even had an orthopedic and podiatrist tell me birkenstocks were great when I had sprained and fractured an ankle. I began having my big and second toe go numb as well as part of my foot and could not figure out why. Finally one day I realized it only happened when I wore these all day. I went back and forth between this style and my old Arizona ones and realized it was the 'plastic' thing between my toes putting pressure on I guess a nerve between my toes. I checked all of the pairs of this style that I have, even the real leather ones and they all have a hard plastic thing between your toes...really? So I am done with this style until they remove the hard plastic divider and use leather that won't cause so much pressure.

This shoe is awful. So wanted to love it but the placement of the toe thong forces your foot off the edge :(
