before our trip to Florida, dlb bought a pair of Birkenstocks. I’ve been a little jealous ever since, wanting a new pair of comfortable sandals for myself. the weather hasn’t been just right yet, but I know it’s coming, and I need sandals.
I’ve had, what one might call, a love affair/dorkathon relationship with Birkenstocks. in 7th grade I got my first pair. I loved the cork of off them. then I wore my second pair all the time up until high school when I heard that “Birks were dorky and no body wears them anymore”. so I tossed my beloved shoes for something new because we all know how high school was: if you weren’t cool, you were just plain dorky.
so now that dlb has his new pair of Birks, I’ve been intrigued again, remembering that soft suede and cushiony cork that I loved so much. I checked out the site, and you know, the Women’s sandals really aren’t that bad if you steer clear of the ones with the big straps. but I’m still not convinced. I’m going to try some on this weekend and report back.
so what’s your opinion readers, Birk or no Birk?
