Birkenstocks have been popular among travelers for quite some time, but the classic style was not appealing to me. In recent years, however, Birkenstock has branched out into a number of great looking styles. I decided to try the Gizeh model for my first pair. Yes, I said first pair. As in I can totally see myself getting more Birks in the future..
The sandal offers some great support for my foot with the anatomical footbed. The shoe molds to your feet over time, so you will get a great fit. One thing to note is that you are meant to sit back in these sandals. If the thong style sandal is causing you pain between the big toe and second toe, your foot is likely too far forward in the sandal. Set your heel all the way back, allowing the heel cup to cradle your heel. There is great arch support and a toe ball.
Do you think these could be the perfect travel sandal? I, for one, am curious to find out!
