#Trending: Birkenstock

Birkenstock are *the* shoe of summer 2021!

Some people call them an “ugly Dad shoe”, but I think they are one of the best pairs of shoes I’ve ever bought and I will die on a hill defending their honour.

Birks have been popping up all over TikTok and Instagram as an essential summer shoe and I am here for it!

Why are they so popular?

One word: comfort.

Wearing Birkenstock is honestly like wearing your slippers outside. They really support your foot so it feels like a hug when you walk.

I know I sound like an old lady talking about the comfort of shoes, but I really do think my mam might have been onto something when she used to admonish me for buying cheap flats that “wouldn’t support my feet properly” when I was younger. Just don’t tell her that I admitted it.

How To Style Them

I really do want to make a strong case that Birks should be your go-to this summer. Not only are they comfy out, they also go with everything. From jeans, to shorts, dresses to midi shirts, I dare you to find an outfit that they don’t work with.

Birkenstock are a timeless addition to your wardrobe

Birkenstock are a great investment pieces for your wardrobe as they are truly long-lasting. I have a pair of Birkenstock for about 10 years now and they are still absolutely perfect.

I know there are places doing similar version of Birkenstock for a lot less, but I really don’t think you can beat the original in terms of comfort and quality. Black ones will last you years saving you more money in the long-term and it’s also better for the environment to buy quality pieces once instead of cheap shoes that will fall apart.

This pair of Arizona Eva’s, which are only €44, are half the usual cost of Birkenstock, so if you’re looking for a pair, I’d start with these.

I will probably invest in a new pair to have as well this year, but my trusty pair are ready for another summer outing now. I think I will go for something like these with a back on them – I don’t like wearing my Birkenstock when I’m driving for fear of them sliding off, so they are perfect.

Will you be wearing this trend this summer?
