the thing about the "Birkenstocks" that are on the feet of so many Hong Kong kids these days is...they're not real birkenstocks! LOL I was surprised when I went back last summer at how they caught on like wildfire...before realizing that a lot of local brands have been making variations. The flip-flop model seems to be the most popular.

I bought a pair of Birkenstocks a few years ago, spent a whole summer trying to break them in after I followed the instructions the guy at the birkenstock store gave me, and they still hurt like hell, I think they don't fit the structure of my foot, so I ditched 'em. Nowadays I wouldn't be caught dead wearing these, they're a bit hippie/librarian for my tastes. Actually nowadays you would never catch me wearing a pair of sandals, period.

They are quite unattractive, but last summer everyone had a pair, so I wanted some. I went in a store, tried them on, AND OOOOOOWWWWW, they hurt like an SOB. I know most ppl say they are the most comfortable shoe ever right, b/c they have raised areas that fill in the crevasses and arches in your feet, well for flat footed ppl like myself that raise in the shoe pierces the bone in your foot where instead of an arch its just flat, so it feels like someone is taking a knife and stabbing it into the soul of each foot. So i ditched the trend and bought a pair of Converse next store, HA HA So WARNING, anyone with flat feet don't buy Birks

I have to agree with Fade to Black and MZ Bloom that these "shoes" aren't comfortable at all, at least not on feet that don't fit to their footbed. And I can say that they don't mold on my feet, even after years! (My mother kind of forced me to wear them as house slippers, so I have experience...)

I love to have the sole simple flat, so that only the areas that are intended to touch the ground get touched by the shoe.

And BTW, as a german often getting an aesthetical shock by seeing them on peoples feet, I would like to have them banned by the government, only nurses, cleaning personnel etc. should get a special licence that allows them to wear them.

And they won't look any better when you spray tons of gold and silver on them..

(ok, this was a mean post, but you have to understand.. I'm traumatized by my childhood experiences..)
