Ugly Sandals Trend-Birkinstock
When I saw this trend last year, I thought “Oh, it is just one of those crazy trends, it will go away after one season”. But it hasn’t. Instead, more and more fashion designers have brought out chic versions of these “ugly” yet comfortable sandals. Sorry, girls, it looks like they are here to stay. When I first saw them on Celine’s last year’s show, I thought “I wonder if I will ever wear Birkenstocks, I probably won’t. I am more of a high-heel girl, afterall”. I did. Now, before you judge me, you’ve got to understand that I was in Hong Kong in mid July, where it was extremely humid and hot. My sandals were killing my feet, so I had no choice but to try my brother’s spare Birkenstocks. They were so comfortable. My feet were finally in heaven and the “ugly” sandals didn’t look bad. I think anyone can pull them off with a clean pedicure and a summer dress.
For all the Birkenstock lovers, there is so much variety of them this season. From the pretty Givenchy, Isabel Marant and Calvin Kliens to the more affordable Asos and original Birkenstocks. I’m not saying you must buy a pair of Birkenstocks, but you should definitely try them and see if you like it. Trust me, your feet will thank you :).
