Birkenstocks may be a "controversial" item in the fashion industry - and a little bit like Marmite in that you either like them or you hate them - but there is no denying that Birkenstocks are witnessing a style renaissance. The Celine SS13 show where models donned furry Birks certainly got everyone thinking that maybe the shoe once unarguably considered the most comfortable but ugliest shoe around merited a moment of fame. I am personally for any shoe as comfortable as this and love that they add a bit of edge to an outfit.
I ordered mine (here) online from Zalando, a website that I have grown to love because of their super speedy delivery and hassle-free return policy. What are your thoughts on Birks? Toujours a fashion faux pas? I'm already thinking of ordering my second pair. I kind of like these ones. They are a little simpler than the three strap ones I'm wearing here - maybe a good way for people to ease into the Birkenstock trend?
