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.

I love my Birkenstocks. They are great for walking distances and standing for periods of time. I purchased my Birkenstocks May 2015 and I just noticed that the shoe is beginning to crack right near the ball of my foot. I am also disappointed because I missed the return policy [within 365 days of purchase] by 2 weeks. Ughhhhh. So now I have to pay to have them repaired and I have only had the shoes for exactly one year. I believe the shoes are very comfortable and sturdy. However, I must have gotten a defective pair as they should not have began to come apart so quickly and I have not worn them every day. I have only worn them when I travel which is only twice per year. So, I caution you to thoroughly check your new purchase that there are no cracks on the sole of the sandals!

My 1st pair of Birkenstocks! I love them! I normally wear a 7-7.5 and I bought the same regular width. Fit was perfect. Toe thingy not uncomfortable at all for me. I do wear a lot of flip flops. My toes seemed to land in the perfect place and they were great from minute I put them on. I can't wait to buy another pair!

White looks great! Almost can't tell they are Birkinstocks. I am a size 7 1/2-8. Size 38 fit perfect. Never realized how comfortable these sandals are. First pair!

I bought these Birkenstocks for my daughter who wears a size 6. But, the 6-6½ were way too big. They fit me perfectly, and I wear a 7½-8. They are really comfortable; they form to every curve in your foot, but I just cannot get past the "Bohemian-hippy" stereotype of Birkenstocks. My daughter loves them though.

So I am a student at California-Berkeley, and as people around there might know, a lot of walking is needed to get around campus. I have always been a sandals guy, but I did not really get to know Birkenstocks until my boyfriend John introduced them to me. So I bought a pair of Gizehs, and two months later, I have got to say that I love these so much! The comfort is like no other sandal, even though during the first few days, it was kind of hard to adjust. Now, I literally wear these all time, the cork footbed is great! I would highly recommend these Birkenstocks to any other guy!

I love these shoes so much! They are extremely comfortable, very cute and unique. I have gotten tons of compliments, even from strangers. They take maybe two dedicated wears to break in, but I never got any blisters. I am considering getting another pair to have on hand when these go. This is probably my favorite pair of shoes that I have gotten on Zappos to date. Do it.

These are outstandingly comfortable after a week or two of breaking in. Love the style and the more open air feel of these. The leather upper is so soft you can step right out of them if you try to run or if you catch the toe end on a step. Only issue I found with them, being leather, the black straps heat up if you stand or sit in bright sunlight. Couple of times the toe straps felt like hot coals sitting on top of my feet. Easy fix is to take them off and turn them upside down to cool off a bit.

Soft leather, bright, clean white color. Takes a little bit of breaking in, but overall super comfortable like all birkenstocks. Some have said the plastic toe divider is uncomfortable, but I haven't had a problem with it.

Love, love, love! I got these in the Flower Crush Mocha color. There was a brief break-in period with the plastic bit on my right toes, but after that they've been great. They molded to my feet quickly, and are comfortable enough that I want to wear them every day. I get lots of compliments on them, too. These were a bit narrower than the Arizona style, but that was fine for me. I'm a size 9, and the 40 fit perfectly. (There's supposed to be a bit of room for the toes and heel.)

I wear an 8 in a sandal and the 39 fit perfectly. This is a beautiful shoe that makes me feel like I'm taking care of my feet (which I haven't always done). The strap is adjustable and I was able to find a comfortable width by adjusting the strap.

These shoes are amazing! I had some Papillos from a few years ago and decided to try these. So cute, so the first day I wore them to a Meghan Trainor concert with my daughter. They first went through the rain getting to the line. I stood in line for an hour and a half. Our tickets were in the pit and standing only. I stood another 4 hours. My feet felt great. I thought that I really took a chance on these and they served me well! Again an awesome looking shoe that molds to your feet. I wear a 9 or 9 1/2 and. The 39 fit great.

I normally wear a 7-7.5 and I ordered a 37 and 38. The 37 fit perfectly so I'd say the sizing guide is off. I also have fairly narrow feet and the regular width was just fine. Love these - so comfortable!

I had previously bought Birkenstock Jakarta sandals, and did have a breaking-in period--blisters and sadness were involved. So when I got my first pair of Gizeh sandals, I was pleasantly surprised when it seemed they didn't need much breaking in. Let me rephrase: no breaking in. I put them on at home in the evening just to get them fitted, and I pretty much haven't taken them off in the month since. I wear them all around the house, in the yard to take the dogs out, and then to work where I'm standing at my desk 8-10 hours. This morning I totally intended to wear my gold Jakartas to go with my outfit, and halfway through my commute I realized I'd forgotten to change out of my now-default Gizehs. Other bonuses: shiny, fun, walkable, standable; soft footbed and moleskin-like upper lining. Not a single blister yet!

I am a size 7 and typically wear a 37 in European sizes. I went with this rather than the 38, as the size chart suggested, and I am so glad I did. The 38 would have been way too big. These fit well and are very comfortable. I also love the color of the silver metallic! I have not had any problem with the plastic toe piece. I honestly don't even feel it.
