Sandal Season

Let’s play a little game of fashion word association. Teva. Go! Birkenstock. Go! Orthopedics. Go!  Chances are words like granola, grunge and granny come to mind faster than “must-have item for spring.” Fret not our fashion savvy friends, we’re going to change your perception to ensure that when you think sandal, you think chic.

No longer do you have to sacrifice style for comfort thanks to the resurgence of, and seriously upgraded style of strappy sandals and fat-flat bottomed shoes that were once relegated to Phish concert-goers and nurses.

Yes, Birkenstocks are back and they are paving a fashionable way for luxury designers. The brand’s iconic styles that are now offered in patent hues, metallics and denim camouflage prints (we’ll admit, we’re adding the latter to our spring shopping list must-haves) are inspiring similar foot fashions with designers like Givenchy, Celine and Jil Sander. Take a look at Lucky magazine Editor-In-Chief and designer darling, Eva Chen’s shoefie collection on Instagram – that’s a selfie for shoes – and you’ll see her coveted all black Birks as well as encrusted Teva-style Prada's.

Slip into Sandro’s rock inspired pair or fasten the straps on Marni’s bejeweled ones and your feet will be heaven and you’ll look flat our fabulous.

So go ahead and jump feet first into this trend.
