In case you’ve been hiding under a rock that has blocked your view of what everyone and their mother (literally) are wearing on their feet this spring and summer, let me introduce you… or reintroduce you, as the case may be.


For some of you, Birks are new. For many of you, Birks have been in your closet for years and your favorite pair is either getting bumped up into your current shoe rotation more these days, or you’re rocking them with pride, just like you always have.

While I don’t currently own any Birkenstocks, they’ve been in and out of my own shoe closet since I was a teenager. You know, back when I was wearing perfectly ripped in all the right spots vintage, thrifted Levis and the comfiest tee I could find in my dad’s closet. Which is pretty much the same style I’ve been wearing lately. I suppose the ’90s are back after all, aren’t they?

I’ve had my eye on a few pair of Birkenstocks from the selection at to get me through a busy summer with the kids and these are my finalists.

What do you think? Do you own a pair of Birks? Which pair are your faves? Let’s vote on it, shall we?

    I almost, voted for the silver slides (black patent leather got my vote). I just got a pair of mukluk’s like the silver slides in the twilight blue and love the style. So both get my vote :)

    I’ve been wearing Birks since my college days in the 1990s — so glad they’re back in the spotlight! My fall/winter pair is the Boston (in dark gray); my summer love has always been the Arizona style (have had several earthy shades over the years). But those silver slides are now calling my name…

    I’m leaning towards the black patent, too, Breanne. I think they look cute and are a little more my style, compared to the silver pair. And, they’re a good price, too!
