Def big, am usually a 5 1/2 to 6, the last few I have ordered in a 5 this is in the Madrid style so maybe they vary.

i'm nomally a 5/6 and my birkies are a 37 which according to the inside is a 4.5

it depends on your foot shape. i have got very long toes so i need bigger ones or they rub on the bed bit. if you have daintier digits then smaller will be good.

gizeh are for wider feet/high arch, madrids for narrow. no idea re arizona, they look like they'd hurt though so prob narrow feet.

They come up big - I am always a 5 but only a 4 in the Madrid birkies. I have narrow feet.

Im a size 7 - 7.5. I got size 7 madrids and they fit fine.

Tahnks all. I'm a 5 sometimes 6. Some UNWORN ones have come up on freecycle just down the road from me shock - lady said she'd wonr them around the house but they weren't comfy. They are a 4, so I'm hoping they'll fit. IF nbot, they'll fit my sister.

I am anywhere between 6 or 7 depending on the make. I have the Madrid in a 5.

Go for it!

If anyone else is looking Jones Bootmakers and Sole (both instore) have £5 off the Madrids and Gizeh at the moment.

Always go down a size in Birkies.

BTW I've got shiny rose pink Madrids and I'm danger of having an accident due to not being able to take my eyes off their unbelievable gorgeousness

If I die in summer, bury me in Birkenstocks!
