Three stars to start. I will change to 5 or 1 after I wear these in the house for a day or two. I love the Iron colored oiled leather, not crazy about the purple sole. Natural would be better, but I can live with it. What I don't like is the plastic-y piece between the toes. Plastic does not mould to my feet like leather would. Why plastic? If it was leather, I wold give it 5 stars. I really want to love these, and I don't want nerve damage from plastic pieces putting pressure on the nerves between my toes.

I really didn't like these shoes. I think I had some dream about Birkenstocks that they were extremely comfortable but these were not. The thong sandal gave me a blister between my toes immediately, and I must have tripped in these shoes a million times. I would return them but I threw away the box in my excitement of having the shoes my mother once had and well now I guess I'm just stuck with them.

Incredibly comfortable and well-made shoes. I had my previous pair for about 8 years and wear them daily as my "house shoes." They would have lasted even longer if I didn't leave them outside on the deck regularly. It took me about 1 week to soften up that little piece that goes between the toes. If that is bothering you, give it a week or two and then it softens up and you likely won't be bothered by it.

What a wonderful update to an old favorite. This is the only Birkenstock style that I think is truly flattering. Until now, the plastic piece between the toes has been totally rigid and really uncomfortable. They finally are using something that is flexible. Yay. I do agree with the other reviewer who would prefer a leather toe piece - that would make this shoe six stars. I bought the iron leather and I think the purple sole is spectacular. It kind of glows beneath the shoe. I wear a narrow in these and I love that Birkenstock provides that option.

This is my first pair of Birkenstocks and I finally understand what the hype is about. They are incredibly comfortable and look great with everything. The pop of blue makes these extra fun. It did take a few days to break them in (nothing too serious, the leather is a bit stiff at first), but it was worth it! I wear these every single day.

These are a great walking sandal. They feel hard when you first wear them until your foot conforms to the footbed. From there, they are very comfortable and supportive. I have a slightly wide size 7 1/2 foot and the 38 fit perfectly. I find German made shoes just a tad wider than others which is great for me. I gave 5 stars for style based on wearing them with casual clothes.

Wow! I love the bright colored soles on these Birks. I wasn't so sure I was going to like them, but they provide a modern update on a classic style. These are so comfy, and you can't go wrong with great leather sandal.

I just sent back 4 pairs of sandals because they were costly and not comfortable. I have been away from Birkenstocks for awhile. But my feet hurt and I need something comfortable and not made in China. The Gizeh is it. Love the new colors and soles. Just bought 2 pairs and they are all I am wearing. Will order more. Just slip on and go. I order my usual size in narrow for my average foot and they are perfect.

These are great if you are walking or standing a lot. They take a bit of breaking in but they are worth it. I like the leather upper as opposed to the fabric of the Birkis.

I love these. I had to replace a pair of Gizehs that I'd had since 1996. I was initially unsure about the colored sole, but I love it. It gives them a fresh, updated look. They are still as comfortable as ever!

These are cute and narrow enough for my 4A width feet. They do require a lot of breaking in. They hurt at the base of my toes where the ridge to help you grip is located. I have read that this will go away with time. I do like them and can't wait until they are molded to my feet.

Ordered these--only my second pair of Birks--in "narrow," but found them too narrow for my medium width feet, so they are going back. Liked, but didn't LOVE, the style/color, so I will re-select/shop, and probably stick with "medium" width in the future for Birkenstocks.

These shoes seemed to fit well when I tried them on and I wore them around the house for a number of days. When all seemed well, I went outdoors, however, then the trouble began. The toe-thong became unbelievably uncomfortable as my outdoor stride took over and after a brief walk I realized that I couldn't wear them at all. Sadly, had to give them away to a charity shop.
