Finding your Perfect Pair: Birkenstocks Guide
Birkenstocks: the absolute BEST sandals for comfort. I used to call these my “oats and granola” shoes – back before they made tons of cool styles, colors and textures! Birkenstocks are cool now. Or I’m just done caring what other people think if I’m wearing something trendy or not – I AM HERE FOR THE ARCH SUPPORT. The ultimate Birkenstocks Guide and Birkenstock shoe round up in the best colors!
Seriously, if any of you are thinking about a Euro summer vacation any time soon – THESE are the most comfortable sandals that you NEED to walk miles in all day! They are a bit of an investment, but I promise you they last for years and unlike any other shoe! Birkenstocks now make a cheaper “plastic version” for under $50 and are more waterproof than the traditional! They come in all the colors of the rainbow, so if budget is a concern you can start with these! I found them in a light pink blush here and all other colors here.
I found the biggest selection of Birkenstocks here. My favorite 2 styles are the Mayari or the traditional Arizona. I have both and love them! For something a little less “oats and granola” and something more “fun” I highly recommend the metallic colors!! The exact color I have is Metallic Gemm Red – which discontinued and sold out EVERYWHERE. I can’t even find it on eBay and I bought them in 2018. So if there is a metallic color you like that isn’t traditional like white or brown, I’d jump on it because it probably won’t last. The silver and copper metallics I have seen year after year though.
Below are all the fun colors and styles I recommend! Some are subtle differences – like buckle color or sole color. You can shop by clicking directly on the item!
