When you spend as much time on the internet as me, you can’t help but notice the new Birkenstock inspired summer trend. I’ve never been the biggest fan of this type of sandal so I was a bit surprised when this shoe-trend took off. What surprised me even more is that I was really drawn toward looks incorporating this pretty-ugly shoe. My favorite outfits are in combination with ripped denim (go figure) or with a dress. Preferably with a little bit of leg showing, as this breaks the look.
This shoe has been around for ages, more specifically from the brand Birkenstock but this revival started with the Céline SS2013 show of Phoebe Philo (aka the women that starts just about all trends). If you’re into this type of shoe, Birckenstock or Céline are no longer your only options. Isabel Marant, Givenchy, Miu Miu, Giambattista Valli, Marni, etc. all have their take-down (or take-up) version. One thing is sure, this is a trend that is here to stay (maybe because it looks so comfy). I’m thinking of buying my first Birkenstock pair of the model Arizona on Zalando, what do you think? Are into this trend?
