Great summer shoes! I have about six pairs of Birkenstock sandals, but all are slides or clogs. I wanted to try the Kairo because slides can be inconvenient when you’re running around in the summer. (Slides fly off on roller coasters!) They are very comfortable, but the strap above the toe hits in an entirely different place than the Gizeh & seems larger. Also, when you bend your foot, the long straps gaps up. Not irritating, just very different than Gizeh. I love them, though!

Super shoe - I love this shoe because of the adjustability of the ankle strap. This holds the shoe in place so my foot does not slide forward and touch the toe piece. Great for walking. Wish they came in a beige or light natural color.

Ouchs! I love Birks and so I was rather surprised that these are kinda painful for me. The shoe itself is perfect except that the piece that goes between the toes is hard, stiff plastic and feels very odd after a while. I am hoping the shoe will soften up with use but that toe piece will stay hard, I fear.

Comfy - need them in every color - A great comfy walking shoe that you can wear with anything including walking the cobblestoned streets of Europe. This shoe was the rage in Europe last summer.

Not as good looking as in the picture - You have to have a certain type of legs for these shoes to work. I think, these shoes will only look good on tall people with very long legs, and certain type of feet with long toes. On my feet, they looked disproportionate. The middle strap covered my big toe completely, which freaked me out.

Great shoe for bad feet - I have not worn any shoes except tennis shoes with arch support and mesh sides for 2 years. I have bunions and very high arches. I can finally wear a classy looking sandle and have comfort!!! My feet are nice and cool and incredibly comfortable. I chose the Kairo because I like a strap to help hold the shoe on and for the looks of it. Yippee! Can't say enough about this shoe! I was also elated to get it so quickly. I ordered on a Sunday night and UPS delivered Tuesday afternoon!

Fantastic shoe! I brought these shoes with me on my recent trip to Asia. I hiked to the top of Lantau Peak in Hong Kong in these shoes and my feet were comfortable the entire time. This was the second time that I had worn these Birkenstocks. And, I looked stylish while doing it. Just wonderful, I recommend these shoes to anyone and everyone. Also very light, great for hot climates!!

Great Barefoot Thong - My husband and I are active nudists. This barely there thong is the perfect sun worshiper sandal. You are barefoot with a sole. My husband wore flip flops until he tried this thong. Looks great with shorts, skirts or just a smile.

Hot shoe for the season - This is a sandal that has it all. The comfort and arch support of the classic Birkenstock bottom. The style and freedom of the thong sandal. The security of the back strap. This is a style that looks great on men and women and is this year’s must have look. My husband and I both wear this and we get a lot of great compliments.

Love them!! The strap makes all the difference. I have 2 little kids and feel secure that they won’t fall off when chasing them around. Nice thong design. Hoping in the future they come in more colors.

Another Great shoe for her and him - This is a great shoe that offers it all in a comfort sandal. You get the classic bottom of the Birkenstock bottom. The comfort and style of the thong sandal. The security of the back strap which fits so loose that you hardly feel it. This year back strap thongs are all the rage. My husband and I both have the same pair. We get a lot of great compliments and have fun with them.

Very Nice! Like all Birks, these are very comfy. I love how the t-strap fits so comfy and snug against the top of the foot. From what I've heard, these are limited with the back strap. So if you're thinking about getting them you'd better jump on it fast.
