Birkenstock Gizeh Birko-Flor|

Reviewer: Rebecca from Oaxaca, Mexico
This was my first Birkenstock purchase. I needed to find sandals that would be comfortable walking in all day, but nice enough to be appropriate for work. (I'm a teacher in a hot climate.) A few co-workers recommended these to me, so I decided to try them out. I wondered about the part that goes in between the toes, based on some reviews here, and almost backed out of selecting these because of it. However, while it is a bit thicker than other flip-flops and felt a little weird until I got used to it, they didn't hurt at all. The sizing was perfect; I wear a 10 (U.S.) and the 41 fits beautifully. I wouldn't size down unless you like your toes and heel to reach right up to the edge of the shoe. The footbed started to mold right away, and is extremely comfortable. The soles stained some during the first wear, but I expected that to happen with the material. I know you can't wear these with socks, but if you're unsure whether you like these, be careful since they won't look new after long. I walk around in these for miles at a time around the city, and all day at work, and they haven't caused any blistering or discomfort. I'm very happy with these sandals. :)
