Birkenstock – its back, and its big

birkenstock

When we think of fashion, it’s not only about how glamorous and sophisticated it looks, it must also considers comfort, so you don’t just get to be stylish and fab, but also laid-back and feeling good at the same time.

Birkenstock was a simple invention that made feet undeniably comfy for over 200 years ago. It was first made in Germany with very little designs. Indeed, it has a very long history in the shoe making trade; considering the fact that up until now, it is still much considered by people from any gender and of any age because of it being an almost homey looking sandals designed to bring comfort and happiness to your feet.

It had made its huge boom in fashion now when famous celebrities are spotted wearing these classy yet comfy sandals. From Ashton Kutcher in his movie “Jobs” where he is seen wearing these to the appearance of Miley Cyrus in Good morning America wearing the newly revolutionized Birkenstock sandals with fur linings which were immediately nicknamed as “Furkenstock”.

Sure enough, they have been mounting on sales and have been everywhere especially during summer when everyone tries to look classically laid-back. The secret, is that when you walk, it’s like the sandals itself bends for you, because every Birkenstock is a roomy toe case that has a deep heel cup to ensure proper weight distribution and alignment which really adapts to your foot’s shape.

But Vogue warned us that “the trick of riding the current comeback is NOT to dredge out old Birkenstock at the back of your closets” it is practical to re-use you old ones, but it would be nice if you buy crisp-new ones that can be found in the department stores near you.

It’s time for you to forget all the ugly insights you might have heard past few years ago about Birkenstock. They are back, they are big and they will be staying with us, as long as we seek not only for aesthetics, but also for practicality and comfort.
