Papillio Gizeh Animal Print Thong Sandals
I have many many pairs of Birk's. The thongs are now my favorite. I love this print. Please bring us more printed thongs!
Bought this shoe for use on a trip to Thailand/Malaysia/Singapore. Definitely needs a week or two of break-in time - I thought I'd return them after first use but they break in quickly and are SO comfortable. I'd love if Paillio/Birki made a more narrow shoe but it still works wonderfully for me and I love them. I get lots of compliments on my "hippie shoes," as my husband calls them, and they look really cute with capri pants, cargo skirts/pants and chinos.
I usually wear a 9 1/2 american and a 38 in Danskos but needed the 40 in this shoe, so I'd err on the side of the larger size.
I bought the Snake Thong Sandals. I just love them, they feel comfortable, and look great!!!
Really wanted to wear these!
I loved these sandals, but just couldn't stand the strip between my toes.
Sadly I had to return them.
But anyone who can wear a thong and doesn't mind that both sandals aren't exactly matched - go for it!
I am so disappointed that I had to send back my Papillio Gizeh Animal Print Thong Sandals they were so beautiful! Literally, the perfect sandal for my foot, they look fabulous on, but the reason I sent them back was because the thong piece was so uncomfortable in between my toes. It would hurt a lot when I would try to walk in them. I really did try to make them work but I just could not get over the discomfort. It is just so unfortunate, I really wanted to keep these beautiful sandals, but for the price I paid, I expect them to be perfect and pain free. I will continue to buy from Birkenstock, hopefully they fix the thong piece so that they are comfortable to walk in and I can own a comfortable pair of Papillios. Overall, the quality was great except for the plastic thong piece, I hope Birkenstock addresses this problem so that I can own a pair of Papillios happily and comfortably.
This is one of the best papillio sandal I ever bought! Love the design.
Love these sandals!
I have both the snake print and the animal print and I LOVE them. Comfortable, cute, fit well and supportive.
I would love to see them in different color animal and snake prints.
First time I have worn this name brand sandal. Nice look and feel, however, they are a little short for a 81/2-9. I never wear a size larger than a nine ever. These shoes around the toe is a little too short. Trust me, I do not have long toes at all, but I feel like I need to cut my toe nails short until they hurt. Otherwise, the shoes feel good. I would recommend them but warn them about the length of the shoe.
What's not to love?
I just received my shoes in the snake print and they are SO cute. I hesitated because of so much pattern but I can see they will got with lots of outfits. I have been wearing Burks for over 25 years, both sandals and closed foot styles, and would not be without them. The Gizeh style is my personal favorite. I currently have 10 pairs and still need a black Gizeh. They conform perfectly to your feet and last forever. I recommend them to everyone and suggest QVC because of the excellent prices and great return policy. Thanks QVC!
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE THESE SHOES!
When I ordered the shoes (I chose the leopard print style) I was a little hesitant just because of the reviews, but I am so glad I went with my gut feeling and purchased them. The shoes look beautiful! Although one should be aware that each shoe has different leopard print printed on the straps, but it gives it character and unless you really look at it you can't really tell. I have a pair of Birkenstock gizeh and it took me about a week before I completely felt the shoe to fit comfortable, but with these pair of papillo ( first time buyer) I was able to feel comfortable and break them in from day one. I love these shoes and since I've gotten them, I have received compliments left and right. Also, I did read in the reviews that people didn't not like the shoe because the thong of the shoe is plastic and hard which makes their feet hurt, I've worn these shoes for several days now and I have not had any problems. I just love these shoes!
Received these yesterday, put them on and wore them in comfort all day. Since they are black and white, I only need to bring one pair of sandals instead of two when I travel!
Not the same
I have a pair of this style in the original Birkenstock and they fit me well and are so comfortable that I jumped at the chance to order the same style in the animal print. Unfortunately, for me the fit is not the same nor is the comfort so I had to return them.
