I’m not going to lie to you guys: I used to own a pair of Birkenstock clogs in elementary school back when clogs were the thing. (Remember when all your classmates wanted to own a pair of Crocs?? Those are the days I’m talking about.) After they went out of style, I tossed them to the side and never owned another pair of shoes from Birkenstock again. Well, that was the case until recently.
No, I didn’t buy another pair of clogs. I’m not ready for that…yet. Instead, I bought a pair of pink suede sandals from Birkenstock. I’ve been wanting a pair of comfy, durable slip-on shoes for spring and summer without sacrificing style. The outdoorsy style of sandal such as Chacos or the original Birkenstocks have never really appealed to me, but the rosy pink color of these really caught my eye. It modernizes them and makes them wearable with the items I already have in my closet!
What really takes the cake, however, is the comfort. The sandals are soft, cushy, and offer a lot of support for your feet. Though they look a bit clunky, they’re actually very lightweight (which was a surprise to me!). I also like that they have adjustable straps so you can make them as tight or as loose as you wish. They’ve been an absolute dream to wear!
They’re a bit on the pricey side ($135 to be exact. Sorry bank account…), but I think they’ll last me a long time. Overall, I’m really happy I decided to purchase them and have been wearing them frequently since! If you’re in the market for comfortable summer shoes, I highly recommend these.
What types of shoes or sandals do you love wearing in spring and summer? Let me know in the comments!
