eh... not as comfortable as I expected
I jumped on the Birk trend when I went for a weekend in NYC, thinking they'd be a comfortable shoe to walk around the city in. I wore them all over, even in the rain. They held up ok, although the black bled all over my feet. The first day, they felt fine, but the second day, the top of the straps cut into my feet (and I don't have wide feet or a high arch) and they hurt. I ended up trading them for my TKees, even though those aren't really city shoes, bc they were more comfortable.

Takes me back ...
My last pair of birks was in highschool back in the 90's...I loved them and wore them to death. I am thrilled they're back in style so I can proudly rock birks again :) I like this black matte color, the sizing is the same as it's always been. I wear a 9.5 pretty much across the board, but a 10 in birks.

Love love love
Patiently waited for these to come back in stock, and they are so worth the wait. I get complements every time I wear them. Takes 2-3 wears to break them in, but then they become the most comfortable shoe, ever.

Comfortable (after a few wears)
This is my first pair of Birkenstocks. Living in Madison, everyone always told me how comfy they were. They do take a while to break in (1-2 weeks) and the black bleeds onto your foot a bit. But stick it out, because they are well worth it! So comfortable now. They run big I'm normally a 8.5 and the 38 fit perfectly for me. The 39 was too big.

Comfy Birkies...and cute too!
Love my new Birkenstock Gizeh sandals. They are so cute on my feet and they fit perfectly. They are great for walking and took only a day or two to break in. Very well made (as I expected from hearing rave reviews from my friends), fits the foot bed perfectly and are great for those who have issues with their feet, ankles or legs.

Cute and Comfy - run a little big?
I'm still wearing-in my Birks - read the birk website, it tells you how to wear these in comfortably. It takes a few wears to mold to your foot and become dreamy comfortable. I thought they ran a little long. I'm a 8 wide and the 39 seems a bit long. If you think your foot is narrow I highly recommend buying the narrow size from Birk. Have gotten tops of compliments, these are so on-trend this summer.

Essential
In theory, I own far too many pairs of the Gizeh Birkenstocks. Once broken in (takes a day or 2), they are more comfortable than bare feet. Luckily I live somewhere where I can wear them 8 months a year. The silver has been the most versatile colour for me.

Felt cheap
These definitely were not real leather and were very uncomfortable and felt super cheap. I ended up buying the Arizona silver ones and the teal soft beds from Nordstrom... a little extra cash but definitely worth it!

Good but LARGER than expected
I went off the size chart advice and sized up for these shoes however they were clunky and huge! I am a size 39, which advises to go for a size 40 in Birkenstocks. Annoyingly, I had to send back the 40 for a 39, which fit much better. Warning that they are not a large fit!

Oldie but Goodie
These are such a throwback! Great sandal for spring/summer. The first wear is uncomfortable, but as your feet sweat the footbed molds to fit your foot PERFECTLY. To avoid an uncomfortable first time, wet the inside and then wear them. Runs true to size. Will last years and year.

Thankful for the Birk craze!
I wear a size 8.5 and the 39 is great. Love the bronze color. I've gotten many compliments so far. Comfortable, chic, hippie!

As well-made as a sandal can get!
I wore Birkenstocks all throughout my childhood, so I know that they are quality sandals with great arch support. I had to bring them back for this summer! I got them with Shopbop's 25% promo code which made the purchase even sweeter. I'm tired of spending $100+ on sandals that are not comfortable or well made. I wish the thong in the front were a little more flexible and/or thinner, but that's a small flaw to an otherwise excellent purchase.
