Do you or don’t you (wear Birkenstocks that is)

On my recent trip to Florida there was one thing that I had in common with four out of six of the other bloggers. We all wore Birkenstocks. All the time. Now I really, really love my Birkis. I have terrible feet (I’ll spare you the gory details) but these stylish slabs of genius are the things that keep me comfy all summer long. I have four pairs in various colours and right now I have my eye on some more – I’m particularly taken with the plum ones (£35, available from John Lewis) but honestly, any shades will do. What about you – do you own a pair (or two) of Birkenstocks, or do you think they’re the ugliest things ever? written by Liz Jarvis
