Papillio by Birkenstock Gizeh Floral Print Thong Sandals
Toe bar took getting used to
I really liked this style and the price. Was hesitant to try based on reviews about the toe bar being uncomfortable. It took getting used to during the breaking in phase, but now I don't even feel it. That's the only reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5. If it's not causing pain, then hang in there for a day or two. I've never had more compliments on a pair of Birkenstocks like I have these! So glad I kept them.
I wanted to like these
When I saw these I thought they were the coolest shoes ever,, but when I received them and tried them on the bar that goes between my toes was too uncomfortable. I am returning them in the morning. I am very disappointed that I can't wear them, as they really are very cute.
What a shame they couldn't have made that toe bar more comfortable.
I haven't worn Birkenstocks in years but I was having a problem with my
foot hurting. So I thought I would try these. They have worked great..
My foot doesn't hurt anymore, even wearing my other shoes again.
The only thing I have a problem with is in between the toe on the
right foot only. It does hurt/rub sometimes.
I wear a size 10 and I purchased a size 41(euro size) 10 1/2 and the fit is great.
Toe Bar Painful
I bought these shoes two years ago. The toe bar is very painful for me. I tried putting a silicone pad around the toe bar but it didn't help. Love the shoe but can't wear them. My only regret is that I did not return them.
Love My Birks
I have over 70 pairs of Birks and love them all. This pair in black goes great with all my clothes.
Great Casual Sandals
I have the Gizeh in both the pink and black and I really like them. They are comfortable and stylish. I have worn them to dress down Capri's and to dress up my casual shorts. They are cute and fun to wear. The thong is comfortable and provides enough support to walk distances while wearing.
I had a pair of navy like these & wore them for several yrs. This pair hurts really bad .Still trying to break in . I love this style of sandal.
Let me start by saying this shoe is adorable! However…..the toe bar is painful. Had to send them back and will think twice before ever ordering this style online in the future. For myself it might be best to try on in person.
Fit well, very comfortable. Will order more. Love the feel of the Birkenstock shoes.
Didn't know if I would like the flip flop style I do
Really Cute shoes
I loved the way the foot bed felt and they would have been great if they didn't hurt so badly between my toes. Had to return them unfortunately.
The plastic hurts my feet between the toes,I even put cotton and a band aid on the plastic but still hurts....
