Women’s footwear. Ouch.
Every summer the same old thing happens to our poor old feet. As soon as the first rays of sun hit the sky, we are searching feverishly for the most unpleasant implements of torture known to man (or woman) to wear on our feet.
But what if it didn’t have to be that way?
What if, flat shoes and sandals were suddenly okay?
Well, reviewssandals.com is pleased to announce that this very thing is happening , because hot on the heels of the Ugg phenomenon, which made comfortable looking boots hot fashion items, we have found that Birkenstock sandals, long derided as being ugly or for hippies only, are stepping into the spotlight.
This, for many women, will be great news. No more stretching your poor feet into narrow, spiked, heels. No more worrying about falling off your platforms and breaking your leg. No more pain and bunions.
So, if you were thinking that Birkenstocks were the sole preserve of fifty year old German tourists or hairy old crusties, think again.
We have compiled a list of some of our favorite styles for this season…
These are what we would refer to as being the ‘classic’ Birkenstocks. They are available in more styles than you can shake a stick at.
Whether you want them in soft leather, suede or EVA for the vegan option, there is a material, style, color, size and fitting available to you.
Available in men’s, women’s and kids, the whole family can be kitted out in the Arizona!
The thing we like about Birkenstocks is that they have a full variety of widths available in their shoes and the Arizona is the most versatile of this.
Now we know that these may not be exactly cheap, but we do feel that they will last a long, long time and once you have worn them in, may find yourself living in these sandals.
MARILIA NATURAL LEATHER IN STUDDED ROSE (CLASSIC FOOTBED – SUEDE LINED)
If you want something a little more glam, then look no further. Yes, Birkenstocks can do glam!
These are cute little pair of soft pink colored strappy sandals, with studs. With an EVA foot bed for complete support, made of cork, we think you will be as comfortable as can be, in the Marilia. And look stylish to boot!
PAPILLIO ALYSSA GRACEFUL LICORICE BIRKO-FLOR
Made from Birko-Flor, which is an easy care synthetic material requiring little or no ‘breaking in’ period; the Papillio Alyssa is a sophisticated style, for those seeking a little more grace.
With a wedge heel and secure heel straps, you won’t slip about in these and every step will be pure bliss. With the cork foot bed that you come to know and love by Birkenstock, you can slip these on and forget you’re wearing them in no time.
For anyone still not convinced that Birkenstocks can do fancy, you really need to check a pair of these out!
