I have to admit… I Love Birkenstocks! I Loved them when I was in high school, and I am happy to say Birkenstocks are back, and have been reinvented to be Hip not Hippy! The Iconic sandal has gone from Granola to Glam! The Birkenstock is no longer just a brand name, but a style of its own; and the hippest (not hippie-est) of designers all have a version of their own for spring- Givenchy, Giambattista Valli, Lanvin, Isabel Marant, and of course Céline- who's fur-lined Birkenstock was last spring's most-talked-about shoe.
The Birkenstock is like the most comfortable sandal in the world with its squishy cork footbed, roomy toe box, and thick buckled straps. In a previous post, I talked about the importance of barefoot-like shoes for children because of their still growing and developing feet. The contours of a Birkenstock mirror the foot's natural shape, which encourages proper growth! Yet another reason to Love the Birkenstock for your Little One! I have been living in my Birkenstocks since this past summer, and now it is time to buy a pair for my son, Mario too--below are some of my favorites!
Another Unisex and Mini Me Style, Soooo CUTE, I Love when my son and I can wear the same trends!
