If you love the Birkenstock Gizeh, be advised: the Papillio version has a lower arch and a less tapered strap - it looks a bit clunky and covers more of your toes. It also fir smaller in the toe area, somehow. I really wanted the gold Gizeh, but I didn't like this shoe. I'll hold out for a Birkenstock (non-Papillio) instead.

I love the look and fit of this shoe and was so excited when it finally came back in stock but the plastic piece between the toes makes these impossible to wear. Why wouldn't Birkenstock make this piece out of another material that is more flexible? I don't know how anyone can wear these. Sadly, I will be returning them.

Found that the secret to being comfortable in the Gizeh is to have the strap tight enough so that it holds your foot back/ keeps it from sliding forward. When I made this adjustment, the toe piece is virtually unnoticeable. Perfect fit in the footbed and seriously felt immediately comfortable for long periods of walking!

I live in NYC and I walk a ton (about 7 miles a day) and I have to say I've been secretly pumped about the Birkenstock making a comeback this season in the fashion world, even though I'm definitely not your typical Birkenstock owner/wearer. The original two strap style doesn't particularly flatter my foot but I love the Gizeh, and it was my go-to Birk back in junior high and high school in the 90s. And now you can get it in Metallic gold - amazing! It goes with everything! I have no problem with the strap between the toes and do not find it uncomfortable I typically wear a 7.5 or 8 depending on the shoe and my foot is a touch wider than the average foot. These run big so order a size down. I got the size 7 and they are perfect. Couldn't be happier with my purchase. And the Zappos customer service was just as awesome as always - free and super fast shipping. I don't think my feet have been this happy since 1996!

Love these shoes - especially the colorful flowers! This between the toe style of Birkenstocks took me a few wears to get used to - but after wearing just a few times, are as comfortable as can be.
