Against advice from some of our best shopping buddies, but fueled by the fact that we love a good fashion challenge, we tried the Birkenstock trend recently. Since then, our Birks have lent support as we navigated Parisian cobblestone, climbed San Francisco hills, and turned the heads of convention questioners who’ve also hopped on the Birken-bandwagon.
Hesitant to try the trend that’s got fashion bloggers, off-duty models, and poet/artists striking a pose for lenses on the street, poolside, and at the hottest Coachella parties? Slip on your first pair of shiny silver-strapped Birkenstocks and you’ll want to walk more than a mile in these shoes. The comfort factor speaks for itself, and as for the way you update this beloved sandal for summer 2015, that’s up to you. With cutesy dresses, slim trousers, or an all-white monochromatic ensemble, your pristinely pedicured feet will be thanking you for treating them right this season.
Where do you stand (and how comfy are those shoes you’re wearing?) in the Great Birkenstock Debate?
