3 Reasons Why Birkenstocks Are Still One of Spring’s Hottest Trends
Spring is here, which means it’s time to break out the Birkenstocks again! If you haven’t hopped on this trendy brand yet, don’t worry. These timeless foot-flattering sandals aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. A combination of summer style and incredible comfort, they’re fashion favorites for a reason, and have even popped up on fashion runways and on celebrities’ feet! Not sold yet? Here are three reasons why Birkenstock sandals are one of our favorite items in our spring and summer wardrobes as well as a few styles that we know you’ll absolutely love.
1) Superior Comfort
Birkenstocks are known for their comfort, their sandals included. All styles feature cork and latex footbeds that mold to the shape of your foot and get softer with each wear, providing you with cushioning and support exactly where you need it. Their deep heel cups, arch support and raised toe bars to cradle your feet and ensure proper weight distribution and posture. All these comfort features make them must-haves when it comes time to pack for your spring break vacation. Whether you’re planning on hitting the beach or seeing every tourist attraction around, these sandals will keep your feet happy all day long.
The Birkenstock Arizona is one of the brand’s most comfortable sandals and features two fully adjustable buckled straps, so you can dial in the perfect fit. Pair it with cropped jeans or shorts and your favorite tee for a comfort-focused casual look this spring. For a slightly dressier look, these sandals go great with a bright sundress or maxi dress and your sharpest pair of sunglasses.
2) Fun Colors
If you thought Birkenstock sandals only came in neutral tones, you’re in for a pleasant surprise! Birks come in a variety of bright and bold colors that are perfect for spring and summer wear.
Colorful Birkenstocks like the Arizona EVA slide add a fun finishing touch to your sunny-weather style while still offering the same outstanding comfort features exclusive to the brand. You can easily dress them up for Easter or a spring garden party with friends, or wear them casually to the park, pool, and everywhere in between. Don’t be surprised if they become your go-to everyday shoe; even the simplest of outfits become bold and unique when you introduce fun colors like these. For even more style opportunities, make sure to grab a pair of these slides in a few different shades.
3) Easy Styling
The best part about Birkenstock sandals? They go with virtually any outfit! The Gizeh sandal is among the most versatile. It features a sleek, minimalist design that pairs well with shorts, skirts, skinny jeans, sundresses and rompers. And with 10 trend-right colors to choose from, what more could you ask for? Well, I suppose you could ask for some fun details on the uppers; luckily Birkenstock has you covered there too!
The Birkenstock Gizeh Braid is just like the original except for a leather braided strap connecting the toe post to the buckle strap. It comes in neutral brown and black leather styles that go with just about everything, so you can wear them every day if you want to! If you do, though, we recommend treating them with the Birkenstock water and stain repellant kit first, to make sure that the leather stays just as beautiful and clean as the first time you wore them.
They’re comfortable, colorful and a cinch to style—we’re certain that Birkenstocks are back and here to stay!
