What is elegant, versatile, unisex, crowd-favorite, fashionable, and modest all at once? You guessed it right, it is the much-loved, stylish, and functional BIRKENSTOCK Gizeh. Launched in 1983, Gizeh was a forward step in fashion by BIRKENSTOCK for the first time. And we haven’t looked back since.
BIRKENSTOCK Gizeh: The Origin
Inspired by the oldest sandals in the world, Gizeh was the first thong sandal to be launched by BIRKENSTOCK. With an ergonomic toe bar and a distinctly minimal look, Gizeh marked a confident step forward that combined both fashion and health. Since then, Gizeh has become a wardrobe staple in the shoe racks of both women and men. And there are kiddie variants too!
Gizeh features the iconic BIRKENSTOCK footbed responsible for the unparalleled comfort you experience while wearing any of our sandals. With its anatomically shaped design derived from a foot imprint in the sand, the rises and indentations of the footbed help maintain a natural stance and gait. It promotes good foot health, aids in the rolling motion of walking, and prevents ankle twisting.
