Are Your Feet Ready for the Birkenstock Gizeh?
Birkenstocks have an enduring style and solid construction that has been adapted to a variety of shoes and sandals. They have become an iconic, comfortable style of sandal that is worn by many. The Birkenstock Gizeh women's sandal is a particularly recognizable thong-style sandal that offers a slender profile within a supportive footbed that gives it a more enduring comfort than cheap rubber thong sandals. With a wide variety of styles, materials, and colours, browsing a store like eBay can help narrow your search.What material options are available for Birkenstock sandal straps?
Straps can come in genuine leather and swede, which is natural and strong but does tend to stretch over time. Birkenstock also offers a synthetic strap which still looks like leather but is less expensive and won't stretch. Some straps have a felt inner surface for increased comfort. Both the leather and synthetic straps come in a variety of colours so you can sport a Birkenstock Gizeh brown strap, or a more experimental Birkenstock Gizeh stone colour.What material can you choose for the sole?
Most Birkenstocks soles are made primarily out of cork, although there are some water-friendly varieties made of rubber and foam. Even in cork varieties, you have a choice of material on the foot-bed lining and sole. Foot-bed linings can be suede or leather, and the synthetic sole comes in a variety of colours. Are you in the mood for a Birkenstock Gizeh mocha colour to go with your morning coffee? Perhaps you're more of a Birkenstock Gizeh white style this year. The Birkenstock Gizeh blue strapped sandal is a solid choice as well.How many styles of Birkenstock sandal are there?
Birkenstock is always coming out with new styles, and they always produce at least a few dozen styles.
