Birkenstocks have always been there for me. As a brand that gained major steam during my formative years, I will always have a strong sense of brand loyalty. It’s easy to love a brand that feels so good on your feet and continues to evolve over time. That being said, with all the new styles and materials being used, they remain consistent in their quality and design. When you buy Birks, you know exactly what you are getting. They run true to size, have solid arch support and the adjustable straps make it easy to fit a range of foot widths. This is HUGE for a girl with wide feet and high arches. While their original Arizona Soft Footbed style will always hold a special place in my heart – call it nostalgia if you must, I wanted to spotlight a few of their newer styles.
Birkenstock Arizona Vegan Canvas
If you don’t want to stray far from the OG Birkenstock style, but want to try something new, they now make their coveted sandals in a vegan canvas material. The soft fabric reduces “breaking in” time to essentially zero. Slide these babies on and it feels like an old boyfriend t-shirt for your feet.
Birkenstock Arizona Essentials
The gorgeous colors aside, there are so many reasons to love this style. The Arizona Essentials are extremely lightweight, waterproof, and odor neutral. They are made of EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) which is a very soft, shock-absorbing material. Oh, and they are washable! These are less than half the price of the cork footbed sandals. If you are looking to add a pop of color to your wardrobe, this is an easy style to add to your wardrobe without breaking the bank.
Ahh, the slide sandal. This is arguable the “style of the season” and I am here for it. This wide strap slide style is everywhere right now and will quickly become your go-to, leave-by-the-door sandal. Whether you are running errands to go to the beach or pool, these will instantly give you that sporty, chic vibe. Similar to the style above, these are lightweight, waterproof and washable. They also come in lots of gorgeous hues and wait for it…. under $40!
Madrid Big Buckle
Stepping back into the cork styles, the Madrid Big Buckle is a slightly more feminine take on the Arizona double strap. This one-strap style is a touch daintier but still has all of the features that make the shoe super comfortable – the cork footbed, lined in leather, deep heel cups and adjustable straps. If you are walking a lot, but don’t want to sacrifice style, these sandals are an amazing option.
