If you follow on Instagram, you may have noticed that an old, familiar friend from college reentered my life a few months back. (Except this time I’m not wearing said friend with marbled wool socks and J. Crew rollneck sweaters while listening to Phish.) I think my Instagram comment says it best:
So here’s the thing about Birkenstocks. You buy a pair, promising yourself you won’t wear them all the time, except that they actually make your old lady back feel much better, and thus you become the chick who always wears Birkenstocks.
Yep, that’s me. The chick who wears Birkenstocks.
But, COME ON. They are pretty dang cute, right? And if you haven’t noticed, Birkenstocks are making a huge comeback right now. (Don’t just take my word for it!)
Forget the cuteness factor for a bit, and let’s talk comfort. My sore, old lady back feels 100 times better when I wear these shoes regularly, and I’m not remotely kidding. I LOVE MY BIRKENSTOCKS AND WILL SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS.
It’s summer, you guys. Get a pair. Make it happen. Your feet and back will thank you tremendously. They come in about one trillion colors, so you’ll be sure to find a good match. (I personally have the black and stone. Because one pair just isn’t enough, people. You gotta trust me on this one.)
