Papillio by Birkenstock Gizeh Floral Print Thong Sandals
I have always liked Birkies. I ordered 2 pairs pink and black. I would have also liked to have gotten the blue but was sold out. They are very comfortable and especially I like the Thongs because the way they are made. I also ordered them because my one pair that I have is starting to get wore out. I usually can't wear thongs because they bother my toes. Birkies are different they don't bother my toes. I would recommend them to others and I have,

Just got it in and love the fit order another pair in the browns can't wait to get it in
I love Birkenstocks---they are comfortable and last forever!! These sandals are expensive;, however, they last for many seasons. This was my first pair of the gizeh style and it took a few times wearing them to get used to them. Now they are great! I love that they come in so many different colors and prints.
I love these sandals. I have two pairs , one I ordered last summer and this summer I ordered a second. While the first were a little hard to break in (3 days max) when I received the second this was not necessary. I plan on buying a third pair. So ladies don't give up on them I wear mine almost everyday, I live in Puerto Rico, and they've gotten soaked and are still great!
Great but please make a thong in the soft footbed
Birkis are my go-to shoe and have been for years. I have several pair of the thongs, since they are so comfortable. However, now that I have my first pair of the soft footbed I want that in all my shoes. Of course, I still wear my old Birkis but really want a pair of thongs in the soft footbed. Please!?!?! BTW - I wouldn't recommend this as a gift because how can you buy shoes for someone else??
lots of compliments
They're very comfortable and go with a lot of my clothes because I like the color blue. They hold your foot snug in the shoe and it's a very comfortable walking shoe. I've gotten lots of compliments, and the price was a good one too. It looks like I got a size 71/2-8, and I think it's because that's what they had because I usually use 8-81/2, just to be sure of comfort. I think the size ran the 1/2 size to the next larger size and the representative said to order that way. It worked out well for me. These fit very comfortable but your nails should definitely be cut otherwise you'll feel a little pressure.
This is my first venture into the Birki's line. I bought mine last year and I love them. I normally wear a wide width and have had no problems wearing these shoes. I have them in black, pink and white. They are so convenient to slip on and comfortable to wear that I miss wearing them when it gets cold.
I forget I'm wearing them!!
Soooooooo, so, so, COMFY!!! I am normally a barefoot girl when home but jump in these to run errands/store etc. I come home and COMPLETELY FORGET that they are on my feet!! For HOURS!! Only little complaint is that the inside soles turn dark after just a few wearings. And I don't know why~ I don't have sweaty or dirty feet. And have not worn them gardening. I think it makes them look dirty but remember that my sisters 10 pair of Birkenstocks did the same thing so I am guessing its "normal"?? I just, personally, don't like it so much but deal with it and still wear them all the time!!. Just an FYI for other buyers. Otherwise they are lovely!! I am ordering 2 more colors next paycheck!!
I am still trying to get used to these shoes. Have never had Bircks before but know you have to get your feet accustomed to them. I am trying them a little every day and can't wait until I can wear them ALL day! So easy to slide into!
love my Birks!
As usual, these Birks fit like a dream and feel fabulous on. I love this style because it goes so well with all the black and white in my summer wardrobe. Thanks for making such adorable prints! These are going cruising down the Danube with me!
Toe Bar too high
I love my Birkie's! But not the thong sandals. The toe bar is set too high and is very irritating to walk on. I wanted to love these, but just couldn't.
I really like these BUT ...
If there was ever a cute Birki's style, the Gizeh is it. Im getting older, so pounding the city pavement in heels is a no go, and I was looking for a cute sandal with orthotic support to give my feet a break.The only problem is the size 42 fits more like 11.5 than 12. The fit was just a tad too short. Too bad QVC doesn't carry the 43, which seems to be the true size 12. Based on the style, I ordered two pairs from Zappos. Oh we'll, sending the QVC pair back.
