Great customer service. I ordered the wrong size and customer care shipped my right size to me the next day! Even before I was able to return the wrong size back. For the Birkenstocks, they are my favorite shoe right now.

Didn't think I would like these as much as I do! They are super comfy and mold to your feet. My daughters both want one! I am a size 8 and the 37 fit me well. Zappos is the best!

I had a pair of Birks 12 years ago when I was in high school, and I wore them almost every day in the summer for 3 years until they fell apart. I had totally forgotten about them until they started showing up again all over the media. Thanks to their recent revival, and my impending foot pain, I figured I would order another pair, and my feet are loving me for it. These are the most comfortable sandals I have ever worn. How have I been wearing regular flip flops and sandals with no arch support for so long?! I prefer to shop locally, but when I checked with the 2 local retails that sell Birks, they only had the Arizona in stock and I really wanted the Gizeh. And Zappos, bless their hearts, had these delivered in 1 business day. How is that even possible?! I also love all the reviews Zappos provides; it makes shopping so easy. Big thanks to Zappos for their amazing service and Birkenstock for making amazingly comfortable shoes.

Love these shoes and have been wearing them every day since they came in the mail. I generally wear an 8.5 and these are supposed to be for 8/8.5 and fit perfectly.

Comfortable and stylish. My 55 year old feet have a hard time being comfortable in most modern shoes, These are so great! I like the modified flip flop design. Took me a few tires to find the color I liked. This neutral color does not draw too much attention to my feet.

Quite possibly the best money I have ever spent. It took me about a week to get adjusted to the arch support, during which the shoe was uncomfortable in a good-for-you way. I've been an avid barefoot walking (at home) or minimal shoe advocate for years, but don't anticipate ever buying anything except for Birkenstock shoes for comfort oriented tasks from now on. Simply superb!

These are great. Order a size larger than what you normally would. They hurt for about a week while breaking them in, but after that they are great!

Love these shoes. I normally order size 7 in most shoes, however, I went to a Birkenstock retailer and was fitted for these and ordered a size smaller. I'm glad I did, because I would have ordered wrong size. Retailer didn't have color I was looking for in my size. Thanks Zappos. Quick shipping as always.

I'm incredibly picky about shoes -- style, comfort, color, you name it. As basic as these are, I'm madly in love with them. Timeless, incredibly comfortable all day, subtle color that matches everything. Expensive for sandals, but worth it because you'll wear them every summer for ten years.

As someone who stands all day and needs to be able to take shoes on/off all day this are a life savor! They reduce the pain of standing on hardwood for hours. I highly recommend them!

These sandals are extremely comfortable! I love them! And the material is wonderful. Because it's not real leather I don't worry as much about getting the shoes wet or dirty or scuffed. Not to mention they look awesome.

I ordered these sandals because of bunions. Going to my church conference, I wanted to be comfortable so that I could concentrate on each speaker and their message. I wore them all day and often in the evening. I was comfortable and grateful I had bought them. I will confidently recommend them to my family/friends.

After flip flops left me with tendonitis and plantar fasciitis last summer, I refused to wear sandals with poor support this season. I wasn't sure about this style, but liked it much better than the traditional Birks. These were beautiful on! Wore them with everything this summer. I am a woman who appreciates good style, but never felt that I sacrificed style while wearing these. My feet and ankles were very happy.

If you have never worn Birk's, it may take a few days (and 2 not painful blisters) to break them in. I have plantar fascia and my feet feel great in these shoes. They have a very high arch. I just purchased a second pair! (GO DOWN A SIZE.)

Amazing shoes! Have not worn anything else since I bought them. It took about a week to break in the toe part, but after that they are pure comfort.

I have worn Birkenstocks and Birkis for over 25 years. They are the only shoes that are comfortable for my feet. I bought a pair of these Giji style yesterday because they were so cute and I thought they could be worn with a skirt or dress, as well as with slacks. I walked around my home and the thong between my toes almost made me lame. I was thinking they just needed to be broken in, but after reading the first review, I am returning my first pair of Birkenstocks. I cannot pay almost so much for shoes that are excruciatingly uncomfortable.

Brands I'd also recommend: Birki's or Mephisto

I admit, the older I get the more I like comfort - and this sandal offers that and more. I find that I can walk longer without foot fatigue. It took a bit of getting used to the look on my foot, but in the end - my comfort won.

Shoes are so comfortable yet fashionable. Walked many miles in Spain in these - no blisters, no achy feet. Plus I could wear them with a dress as well as jeans.

I LOVE these shoes. This is my first pair of Birkenstocks in almost 20 years and I couldn't be more happy with my purchase. I bought them for traveling and walking around the city and I find myself slipping them on to do random stuff around the house. They are just that comfortable, offer plenty of support and a pain free back after walking all day long. They took a little getting use to, I had a little bit of soreness on my shins initially but wow, so worth the breaking-in process. They style is great, too; modern hippy is what I like to call it. They look great with a maxi dress or cuffed jeans and a t-shirt. I won't be without a pair anytime soon.
