This Gizeh sandal is super cute in the metallic pink and I really tried to like them. The plastic widget between the toe took a long time to feel normal but never became comfortable. When I go back to my Birkenstock Mayari, my feet give a big sigh of relief.

I got my sandals super fast because Zappos is absolutely amazing! These sandals are SO cute! I love Birkenstocks and have several pair. I got the pink ones just to be different. Sizing on Birkenstocks can be a bit tricky. Here is a simple way to be sure to get your correct size; Just add "3" in front of your regular size and if you are a half size, always go down in Birkenstock. For example; I am a size 7.5, so I got a size 37. If you are a size 8 get a 38, a size 9 get a 39 and so on. This is a pretty good way to make sure you get the correct size every time! Thank you so much Zappos! The best/only place to buy shoes!!!

Okay...I had to say Moderate arch support because of the kind of sandal they are other wise for me they have no support. But I bought these because I have 3 pairs of Birkenstock Gizehs and I love them. It seems that they are making less and less of the Gizehs in real leather so when I found these I thought I would get them as everyone else I have talked to says they are the same and Birks, just trendier. Well...wrong. I have flat feet and wear orthotics in my shoes and I wear only Birkenstocks for every day sandals and these have way way less arch support than every other pair of Birks I own. Besides the 3 pair of Gizehs, I own 2 more pairs of Birks. I love the look. I love that they are real leather, but I was very disappointed in the lack of support compared to their Birk counter parts. I got them when I was traveling so I ended up wearing them too much to return them, so I only wear them for short periods of time, not like my others. So if anyone tells you that Papillio's are just trendier Birks...don't believe them. Make sure you are happy with them before you settle on them if you are used to the arch support of main line Birkenstocks.

The Papillio Gizeh in Silver Metallic are super comfy, without looking frumpy all the while maintaining a stylish look. A perfect pair of sandals to walk to/from the office before slipping on those sky-high heels.

These were the "It" sandals in Denmark when I visited this summer; I was DYING for a pair. I could not find any in Copenhagen, so I ordered them from Zappos for arrival when I got home. The style is just terrific. These are very comfortable. But for my truly terrible feet, I find that they do not provide the level of support I need to go for long hours of wear. If I am doing shopping or lots of walking, I cannot get by in these; ironically, a much less expensive FitFlop provides more support! If you have flat feet you will find these do offer arch support but for this person at least, not enough to get through an active weekend. My legs and feet ache if wear these for more than a few hours. I am not obese or elderly - just flat-footed! For the average person, I think these are great sandals. They work best for me at a casual social event like a backyard barbeque.
