Birkenstocks
I want a pair! I have right now a pair of Kors gold leather t straps, but I really want to get a pair of the real Birks, Softie owns the black patent ones, and If I was going to buy a pair, I would get those...what are your thoughts about the birks?





I have these in gold

ale...i live in them...i feel like so many people are wearing them now...but the black patent are still my fave...i've never regretted my choice...

i also have these tatami birkenstocks...they are slightly less chunky than the classic birks...and super soft and comfy suede...the hardware is copper...

i highly recommend both... ...if you're into the boho look especially...

I want a pair too, like the first ones you posted Ale!

I need something comfy to walk around in in summer, but I can't find anywhere that sells them here :-(

I'm not really keen on them, they look great on other people, but they're totally not my style - i doubt you'll ever catch me in a pair of them, however comfy they look.

Everybody can buy Birkenstock online, just click on www.birkenstock.com. They sell all styles, colours and sizes. Personally, I love Birki, I use them at home and outside, for garden and when I feel a boho-hippy girl

I first wore Birks back in the 1980s (in my ultra Boulder, Colorado hippie phase ) and have recently returned to them.

I have a pair of the very same black ones you posted, Alejandro, that I think look fab on me with some of my minimalist black dresses. Birks are pretty well made, great for your feet, and embody what I think of as a nerdy "German" practicality/utilitarianism.

I think that it's all about personal style! If you're already wearing the Kors gold, hon, IMO, you can definitely wear the "original" black

My vote: stick with the Kors you already have, they have way more style. Personally I am over birks in general. I really wore in a pair of their "clog-esque" style for a couple of years. But, then i went to college and everyone and their dog had a pair, and when I saw my RA (dorm hall advisor) in a pair I was like "and those are now removed from my wardrobe". It might be because I live in the Nawth, or that I can't wear them at my job, but I am just over flip-flop/sandals in general. Though I still wear my Dolce pool sandals that I got after seeing Paris Hilton wear them on Simple Life for comfort.

I never really like the look of Birkenstocks but now I have found a pretty colored one that I really love & need help...

I normally wear a womens US 5... what size would I get? 35?

Also Im confused about if Id need a narrow. Normally I dont wear narrow shoes but one time I tryed on a Birkenstock & they seemed to wide on my feet... the size was to big too though. My foot across the ball of my foot on the bottom measures 2 3/4. So what do you think? Should I order a narrow?

Thanks for your help.
