I have been wanting a pair of these since last summer. These shoes are beautiful and comfortable and I cannot wait for the warm weather so I can wear them. Also, they are on sale for just slightly more than the birki-vinyl material!?! That deal cannot be beat! These do run a full size too big.

I'm so disappointed with the poor comfort level of these shoes! I only purchased them because Zappos stopped carrying the Mephisto Hale in any nubuck models. What a mistake for my feet are these Birkenstock Gizeh sandals! There is zero cushioning and the are super hard and I hate and I mean by that my feet, ankles, knees, legs and back HATE the low heel cup. What was I thinking? The only semi-comfortable Birkenstocks I've enjoyed are the Bostons with the soft footbed and the narrow sizing for women's feet (regular width just swims on my feet in the unisex sizing.) For my comfort I can't say enough how much Mephistos get my vote. I could wear Mephistos for the 14 hour days I sometimes work and feel great. I have bunions and knee and lower back trouble and Mephistos are the most comfortable shoe for me ever! I wanted a simple thong like the Hale and I ought not to have purchased these Birkenstocks just for the similar look. No comparison in comfort. Stiff and the toe piece cuts like a dagger between my toes. I also find the dansko sandals very well cushioned for a clog type of sandal. Forget these if comfort is what you're after. So what if they look ok if you're in pain! Will never buy this shoe again!

My first Birkenstock sandal and what an amazing shoe this is! I was definitely missing out all these years. And with my super sensitive feet I was prepared to suffer for a few days while I break them in. But they were so comfortable on the very first wear. My feet feel amazing in them.

I ordered two pairs in different colors and kept this one as the dark oiled leather looked great with the dark sole. The sandal fits as expected, I have not owned a pair of Birkenstocks in 15 years or more but they really are built to the same standards. I only wish they came in half sizes since I am in-between a 40 and a 41. This is not a big deal, though. The only downside to this sandal is the blisters I got in between my big toe and second toe where they rubbed up against the thong during a long walk. Just needed a few days break to heal up and am now good to go. I am so glad to have a good looking, comfortable sandal for the summer.

I'm super excited. Received my Gizeh's today! They fit like a glove and are very lightweight. I have wide feet and they aren't an issue. The arch support is great. The best part is Zappos service! I ordered Saturday night and received them Monday! Plus it was free! I am very pleased!

These offer the best support while also looking fashionable and not too utilitarian. I see them on other ladies all the time. They match so many different looks!
