Gizeh Natural Oiled Leather in Tabacco Brown
The BIRKENSTOCK Gizeh is a stylish all-rounder: extremely versatile yet unbelievably comfortable. Its design and function have remained unchanged since it was introduced in 1983, and the classic thong sandal stands out for its timeless style. Thanks to the buckle, the strap can be individually adjusted to the wearer’s feet. The anatomically shaped thong provides additional support for the toes and guides them back to their natural position.
Oiled leathers are designed to appear stressed and rustic looking. Leather conditioner will minimise this look. A lot of this occurs when the shoes are in transit as the paper rubs against the shoes and the shoes themselves jostle one another in the box creating scratches or scuffs on the leather. This can be worked out using your fingertips. The leather can appear dryer(lighter) in patches where the oil has dispersed or darker where the oil has settled. When you bend the straps or move the leather the colour will change frequently showing up crackly as the oil disperses.
