I really like this style; I have several different colors. This style is one of the few sandals I can wear that does not bother the bunion on my big toe. I teach in these and can wear them all day with ease!

Love, love, love the shoes. I looked all over trying to find these shoes and Zappos was the only place that had them in my size. Super comfortable and pretty too!

These sandals are so cute and comfortable. I purchased the snakeskin and the white ones and I could not be happier. I am looking into other colors. They run true to size.

Read the reviews and ordered my usual size (40). Never tried the "thong" in Birkenstock before and was pleasantly surprised! They were warm from being in the hot UPS truck and when I slipped them on, they felt like an old pair of slippers but with support...a perfect fit! The thong feels great between my toes, hardly noticeable. The yellow flowers are subtle but pretty and the bronze buckle and "button" on the thong really add to the shoe. Will buy another thong Birkenstock in the future. Thanks for being so quick Zappos and nobody beats your price!

I typically wear an 8.5 and I ordered the 39. The fit is good. My foot is on the wide side so I probably should have gone up one size. I took about 1 week to break in the shoes. They are very comfortable and supportive. I have to wear supportive shoes and this is a great pair. Stylish and supportive. They appear more black and gray than brown.

I love these shoes...they are so comfortable. I was a little worried because I have a flat foot & I thought the structure of the sandal would kill my flattie. I was wrong. I highly recommend this stylish and comfortable sandal. It comes with the beauty of some flip flops, but without the aftermath of foot pain! Oh, & I wear them for hours no problems.

First pair of Papillios (Birkenstock soles)! I love that Zappos has such great selection in my size (11)! These are quite comfortable, and I love the leopard pattern. Only note is that the front strap extends father than I expected - covering just past the cuticle bed of my big toe.

This is my 2nd pair of Gizeh sandals. I won't tell you how many years I've had the 1st pair. These new ones are wonderful, like walking on air, so comfortable.

I bought this shoe because of the deep foot bed, especially in the heel. It feels safe for walking ie my heel wont slip to the side. I have had this style before so I knew how it would fit. Also like the bright, youthful print which goes w. most of my casual summer clothes. It was on sale, how could I resist?

I love these shoes. They look as they do online. They arrived within a week. They are comfortable and just as I had hoped. The fit exactly as my size '39' did that I bought from a store front. They were also this same style of Papillio. Only I pd less here on Zappos! :) I read that some thought these were a bit too narrow. That is not the case for me. They fit great and I have wide feet with a high instep.

I absolutely love these shoes. I had knee surgery a few months ago and because of the knee pain Ii was having severe pain in my foot. A few years back I had worn these shoes and said that I was going to get another pair. So I ordered another pair and I promise the pain was gone almost immediately after I put them on. I love the feel and comfort and I am saving up so I can get me another. I wish that I could buy a pair for everyday.

Brands I'd also recommend: This is the only style I've worn. I love them so much. I've only purchase them.

From the picture I did not see that they were metallic, so keep this in mind. Beautiful blue and fit is wonderful. I have gotten compliments and asked where did you get those from young and old. With the metallic I am wondering if they will crack or rub off. Would not buy from anyone else because Zappos believes your shoes should last a year at least! Will keep you posted...tossed the box and not normal for me with a shoe purchase at this price.

These are cute Birki's and I never thought I'd like this shoe. The footbed is super comfortable right out of the box. I think I have found my latest shoe obsession! I will definitely be looking for more colors and prints in this shoe! And by the way, Zappos is sheer awesomeness!

I love these sandals! The floral design is pretty, but I like its subtlety. They are comfortable. It takes a few weeks for the foot bed on Birkenstocks to mold to your feet. I have had a pair of Papillio sandals in the past - and the piece of material that goes between the toes used to be leather; on the new pair, this piece is a flexible plastic. It is taking a little time for my toes to get used to it, but I'm sure I'll adjust. I would highly recommend these sandals.

I originally purchased these as it was one of the only pairs of sandals that my orthotic (for plantar fasciitis) would fit in. It took a while to get used to the shoe itself, but once I did, I loved them. I wear them with everything. And, if I don't wear the orthotic, the shoe still provides great arch support. I now own 3 pairs.
