Since it looks like we might have one last week of summer – here’s a quick note on Birkenstock sandals!
I first discovered Birkenstock when I needed something cheap and last minute to take on my honeymoon a few years ago. I discovered a pair of lemon print Birkenstocks in the TKMaxx clearance for £7 – pictured left. I was surprised how comfy they were, but I have to say they haven’t had much wear back home, given that they don’t really go with much!
Then the following summer my friend bought me a pair of cute clogs, and I like these very much, but they’re really only suitable for spring and autumn in those few short weeks where it’s too warm for shoes but to chilly for sandals!!
Last summer I decided to go the whole hog and get a classic pair of Birkenstock sandals (the purple ones). Oddly, they took a little longer to break in than the other two, but after a few wears they became really comfy. They look great with summer shorts and trousers and I think I’ve finally discovered the perfect pair
One of the things I really like about the Birkenstocks range is that they do a narrow fit and a wide fit – the narrow fit is perfect for me, yet they’re still roomy around the toes, perfect!
