This time of year my Birkenstocks call to me. Today I answered, pulled them out of my closet, and put them on. The weather was an amazing 60+ degrees and I practically strutted as I walked my dog Henry. Nothing much better than having my favorite shoes on and not wearing a coat in the brilliant sunshine.
My Birkenstocks are exactly like the ones in the photo. Nothing fancy, basic black. They must be 20 years old. I had them completely rebuilt a couple summers ago. The leather was still like new and the size is perfect so I just had the bottoms replaced. Good as new.
My feet and body feel fantastic in these shoes. Seem to help my posture and my feet never get tired. Unless it is pouring rain or winter, they are on my feet. I did wear a pair of socks today to start toughening up my feet. But boy, it felt great. Soon I’ll be sporting Birkenstock tan lines and you’ll know life is good.
