|How cute are these?!|
|These were a brand new pair found on eBay for $30 #steal|
|scalloped AND jeweled! How cute?!|
|The pair above is one of my favorites...|
|These are waterproof and covered in vines and red hearts!|
"When I was in college working at Mountain Sports I got my first pair. One of the few places that sold Birks in the area. I really wanted a pair of the "New York's" so I saved up and got them!"
"They [Birks] are amazingly comfortable"
My Momma also mentioned to check out the Betula and Papillio branches of Birkenstock. She owns pairs from both.
She also said "Because it's not in the store, does not mean that it doesn't exist. Go to the store and get sized (make sure they know what they're doing). Once you know the correct size for heavens sakes go to the Birkenstock site or better yet, go to eBay1 A lot of times people will buy them, wear them for a day, and then sell them. You can get some amazing deals."
I asked why my Momma enjoyed wearing Birkenstocks and why she owned so many pairs: "Comfort for one. They're just really comfortable.I like the slip in slip out style. They also wear really well. When I was teaching, I wore them everyday. My students thought I was really poor because the only shoes I wore was my Birks.. [which is funny because it's like $90 a pair]. They're just the type of shoe that goes with most everything."
Hope you enjoyed this post, and thanks Momma for letting me steal all your shoes and photograph them and ask you questions!
Here's some of my favorite pairs.. Don't worry they're not the classic "Jesus Sandals" you keep seeing everywhere.
