I’ve been wearing Birkenstocks for a couple years. In the 90’s, I fell in love with them at a church retreat when I tried on my cousin’s pair. They were so comfortable!
Fast forward almost 1.5 DECADES ( ! ) and I finally get a pair. My black single straps, the Madrid. You have no idea how much slack I got from my girlfriends for wearing these (and my FitFlops but that’s another story to tell haha). But now I have the last laugh because all the style mavens are sporting Birks and they’re coming back!
A few months ago, I bought some oiled blue leather Gizeh’s and have to break those puppies in. If you’ve never owned a pair, they may feel uncomfortable at first. But they are wondrous for your feet after they soften up and mold to your feet. And this girl, right here, is about comfort AND chicness. Plus, they’re German. Love anything German engineered and crafted.
The newest to the collection are my silver and white Arizonas. These are what typically come to mind when people think of Birks but how cute are they? They also come in gold, which I’m tempted to get. I plan to wear them with a summer dress and a jean jacket. Or my newly acquired boyfriend jeans from Zara.
Wish I could wear them to work!
