The time is now to stock-up on Birkenstocks. Whether you have a love or hate relationship with the infamous lazy day shoe, Birkenstocks have made it back into the fashion limelight. While some question the taste of Birkenstock-believers, no one can deny their comfort. Authentic Birkenstocks have rubber or cork bases that form to the wearer’s foot overtime; like a tempurpedic pillow for your soles. Still not enough to compensate for the lacking aesthetic value? Look at recent Runways to see that major fashion houses agree that this footwear trend is big. To name a few, Celine, Marni and Isabel Marant are partaking in their own brand-relevant ways. Fitting in nicely with the athleisure trend, Birkenstocks are most easily styled with a sporty flare. Try yours with a collared shirt and trousers for a sophisticated, preppy look – fit for the croquet field. On your feet all day doing chores, but don’t want to sacrifice style? Complement a summer dress with a pair of Birkenstocks. Designers are churning out every creative iteration of the now-classic shoe silhouette. From fur-lined, to bedazzled and printed, Birkenstocks are no longer meant as a service business, but as an exciting addition to your wardrobe.
