Would You Wear Birkenstocks?

I'll admit it, I've always been anti-Birkenstocks. When people started wearing them a few years ago, my response was similar to the Ugg trend #sorryboutit. But lately, sandals like these have been so popular and have been popping up in both my Instagram and Pinterest feeds like crazy. Then, J.Crew released a navy pair and a white pair and I'm officially obsessed. (What is it about J.Crew being able to make everything look so darn pretty?) I also found metallic and neutral pairs but definitely prefer the navy or white. The only question I have is what would I wear with them? I feel like they're not the type of shoe you could wear with anything, yet would look super effortless and cool with chino shorts and a button down. I'm definitely considering investing in a pair. What's your opinion?

Shop a few of my favorite pairs below:

Birkenstocks: are you a fan?

  2. They are THE most comfortable shoes and I've wanted them for years!

  3. My mom has a pair and she loves them, but I just don't think they are for me! These are really cute options though!

  4. I love my Birkenstocks! I've had a pair for more then ten years. I will wear them with pretty much everything except for formal wear and they are great for walking and hiking. You can also have them resoled so they last almost forever.

  5. I personally don't think they are for me, but the navy ones are a fun twist on the traditional Birkenstock!

  6. Ugh. So torn between them. Love the navy pair - but could also see the metallics dressing down a really cute and casual dress.

  7. I used to be very anti-Birkenstocks as well, but since I came to school, my mind has swayed a bit. So many people at my school wear them! But I'm with you, a little torn on how to wear them!

  8. Oh boy, this is a hard one! I've been seeing them everywhere too and I know that they are going to become "the thing to wear" very, very soon. I've always been an anti-birkenstock girl, and as much as I admire those who are able to pull off the look, I just really can't see myself getting into them! Though I do think the metallic silver one's are kind of beautiful!
