Love these shoes! I'm pregnant and they were comfortable from the second I put them on. No breaking in needed for me and I've been getting lots of compliments on them. Might want to size down from what the sizing chart says a size or 2. I thought I'd wear a 38, but a 36 was perfect for me.

Walking in my house they were O.K. I know they have to mold to your feet, but I was out all day and I HAD to buy another pair just to get home. They killed my feet, it felt like walking on rocks.

Bought these from Zappos over a year ago. Took a VERY long time to get used to the toe separator, even though I've had no problems with other thong shoes. In fact, initially, it hurt my left big toe, and metatarsal immediately above it, so much I thought I'd not be able to wear them (major, sharp, deep pain, which I might only feel the next day, when I put these back on). Kept 'em as I'd already worn them outside. Got used to them very, very, VERY gradually, over the course of 6-7 months. I'd wear them after work for an hour, a few hours, then skip a day, skip several days to a week, or even skip several weeks, (till pain went away), etc. Finally could tolerate them all day, every day. Now I think they're the most comfy shoes I own. They don't put pressure on my bunion like my Florida’s--which I've had for 13 years, repairing as necessary--sometimes do, when I have "flare-ups." I want to recommend these wholeheartedly, but find it hard because of the ridiculously long time it took me to get used to them. Some people have no problems with the Gizeh thong; some have minor, some have major. Remember, as with all Birks, the Narrow is actually B, or "regular" width, and their Regular is for those with truly wide feet. I feel the Gizeh looks better on those with narrow feet and ankles than the styles with horizontal straps.

Don’t give up - When I started wearing the shoes, they rubbed between my toes and gave me little blisters. Now I wear them every day. Don't give up even though they take a good 2 weeks to break in. I even crave wearing them after work for their comfort!

Great shoes! This is my first Birk experience. So far, I've been very pleased. The contoured sole cradles my arch and provides excellent support. There are a few days of break-in time. However, shortly after I purchased these shoes, I wore them all around the National Mall for July 4th celebrations. They were great. I purchased both the 36 medium and 36 narrow to compare sizes. The narrow was perfect on my foot. I normally wear a six 6 but the 36 (5.5-6 equivalent) fit perfectly. Of course, Zappos service was divine.

The first pair I ordered was too big. It was not true to size... so I ordered a size down and exchanged. And I love these shoes. I wear them with everything. The middle plastic part hurt me bad until I got the right size, then I didn’t feel it at all. I recommend this shoe highly...
