Love It Or Leave It: Birkenstocks

Birkenstocks are making a comeback, and no, this is not a joke. Those chunky, strappy, and usually very comfortable sandals have been seen on runway models and fashionista's feet lately. But personally, I just think they're ugly, so I say leave it. 

I'm not a big fan, but I think this fad won't last too long. I'll give it a little more than a year, but I just don't see it sticking around for much longer than that, and I don't think it will catch on nearly as much as high-waisted shorts or fringe bikinis. They made a short appearance over the summer in 2013, but probably won't really catch on until this summer. 

Growing up in Florida, it's naturally a sin to wear socks with sandals, and that will immediately show a red flag for tourists, but that seems to go along as part of this trend with some Birkenstocks.

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen were spotted rocking their Birkenstock inspired leather sandals with socks.

So what do you say about Birkenstock-inspired sandals? Love it or leave it?


  1. I really don't get this trend either. Admittedly, I wanted some years ago. but solely for "I'm just going to the grocery store and don't feel like putting on real shoes" days. And even for that I realized Rainbow sandals are a much better choice!

  2. I wore these like they were going out of style in high school (uhhhhhh....yeah). I couldn't see wearing them again until something oddly clicked in my head about two days ago and now for some reason, I want them again. But not to wear with socks! I don't think I can ever do that!

  3. Leave it. But if you have to, please NO socks. Yikes.
