Birkenstocks are just great- here’s why. I’ve always loved the look and feel of wearing flip-flops but the one big problem with them is that they flip and flop. While flip flops are great for the beach or around the pool, they’re not so great for walking. Even just a 15 minute walk to class in flip flops is a bit too much (by my judgment). Birkenstocks solve this problem for me. They still have that same sweet look and feel of flip-flops but without the flopping problem. Because of the second strap they stay on feet much better and once they’re properly broken in and molded to the foot they really feel nice. I also think they look cool. They’re pretty awesome.
