Unless you’ve been living under a rock somewhere, you know that the Birkenstock sandal has made a comeback as the “it” summer sandal this year. My favorite is this t-strap version, the Gizeh. I have always had a thing for metallic t-strap sandals, typically getting a new pair every season after last year’s pair was trashed. And if there’s as comfy as trusty Birkenstocks, well, then sign me up. They work great for a hippie chic look and are seriously SO practical. The only problem, is they are on backorder at many stores…order them STAT and hopefully you can get them before the season is over! They are perfect for walking around town, on vacation, and chasing after the kids. If Heidi Klum can rock them, so can you.
Funny story: I always knew Birkenstocks were quintessentially German, but my preconceived notion was absolutely confirmed when I studied abroad in the Netherlands with a German roommate. She moved in a few days after me, when I wasn’t home. I came home to find four pairs of Birkenstocks neatly lined up at the door.
Anywho, the point is, when the summer trend AND comfort align, you get on it! Birkenstocks are no longer reminiscent of old German ladies and stoner guys from the 1990s.
