The question of whether or not I should get another pair of Birkenstocks continues to pop into my head. I keep going back and forth trying to decide if I really need a pair? Or if I’m just inspired by the pretty pictures and outfits I see of them on Pinterest. I had a pair of purple suede Birkenstocks back when I was like in the 6th grade, I remember wearing them a ton and enjoying them, they were easy to slip on and off. If my memory serves me correctly I may have even rocked my purple suede Birkenstocks with a pair of overalls, which is funny now because some of the pictures I see online are of people wearing overalls and Birkenstocks. Am I getting old enough to see trends circle back from the past? I guess so.
Like all things in life I’ve found that people have very strong opinions one way or another on this style of shoe, it’s either a hard yes wear them or a set no way don’t even think about it kind of no. I get that some things should be locked away and never brought back (mullet haircuts and dresses) but with these I’m just not sure, for now I’m on the fence.
I’d love to know what you think about this style of shoe and if you plan to get yourself a pair of Birkenstocks? They’re great for summer now being able to wear them barefoot, dare I even ask if people will continue to wear these into fall with socks?
Here are a few styles of Birkenstocks I’m interested in:

I feel like I’m an in between-er! I have totally mixed feelings about these shoes. I used to absolutely hate them, but you are so right when it comes to Pinterest inspiration. Seeing the way they can be styled definitely makes me want a pair. I just don’t know if I could pull it off so well. 🙂
I’m leaning toward yes more myself. May need to go to Nordstrom and try a few pairs on. We’ll see! 🙂
I bought the Birkenstock Mayari in Antique Lace and love them. I’m actually debating another pair, but trying a different style like the Arizona. They’re so comfortable and go with almost everything!
Oh awesome! Will have to check out the ones you mentioned. 🙂
YES! I want a pair. But they have to be the right ones. They need to look as classy as Birkenstocks possibly can. 🙂
Love the classy! I am definitely feeling like I want to try them out. 🙂
I JUST BOUGHT A PAIR!
Oh my god. I literally had a pair of purple suede Birks that I wore until the sole fell off one pair. And I wore overalls. From Gap Kids (until I was 15). Hahaha love you!
Gahhhhh! I love this! We were definitely the stylish trail blazers. 🙂 LOVE YOU!
Birkenstocks are always a good idea! I fully support this purchase!
Woo hoo! Glad you think so!
I’ve been having the same debate. I must have made my way to Nordstrom to try them on at least five times now and can’t seem to pull the trigger. I just keep feeling like they are the UGG of sandals. Not all that attractive but so comfortable that I will totally regret if I miss out!
I adore Birkenstocks. Last summer I went to Holland for a month to visit friends. Of course, I purchased two pairs of Birkenstocks – white patent and leather jade gizehs. They are fashionable and stylish. I wear them all the time and get tons of compliments. Also, they are less than 1/2 price in Europe than they are here. Thanks for the post!
Hi Rebekah! Thanks for your thoughtful comment, glad to hear you’re a fan of them. 🙂 I’m excited to get a pair myself.
