01 Jun Trending Now: Birkenstock Style Sandals
Would I ever have thought I would be doing a post on Birkenstocks or Birkinstock-like sandals? Probably not. Even in my college days, I never wore them. I was always turned off by the people that wore them with socks! More guys then girls, but don’t we know this is a fashion faux paux, socks with open toed sandals?
To each their own , I say!
Mine here are the Cognac brown leather color by Sam Eldeman.
This recent trend has me interested. When I saw a pair on Trina of Tea Time With Trina, HERE, in blue floral, well of course I liked them. Floral and I go together like peanut butter and jelly. Laurel and Hardy, Batman and Robin.. Ok. You get the point. The large selection that is now on many retailers sites and stores has made me rethink my aversion to these sandals. I actually do like them! Yes, they are causal and you really shouldn’t wear them out to an evening at the Symphony, but so fun and comfortable with a pair of jeans, shorts, or perhaps boho floaty dress. There are so many styles, one can really find what they look for, and the comfort factor, I am told, can’t be beat!
I know when I tried on Birks before, it felt like I was slipping into some high-grade cardboard, but I was told that they take a bit of time to “break in”. So, I am thinking I might have to give it another go! Women and men swear by the comfortable broken in wider footbed, like they are walking around barefoot.
When I first saw them, years ago, I think I thought to myself, I would rather walk around barefoot, then wear them! However, they have grown on me, although I just remember my art college, where some wore them, with the stereotypical musician look, I think they really DID GROW on them, an actual extension of their appendages!
They are fun, and causal, and I really think they look great with a laid back feel of a boho look or flowty summer dress.
Now, that is appealing to me!
