Birkenstocks have seen their fair share of highs and lows in fashion. They’ve been on the receiving end of jokes, as well as the trendy side of footwear, with being considered a joke sticking to their reputation. However, I am here to convince you with two reasons why you need a pair of Birkenstocks in your closet!
Most guys have a pair of Nike or other brand sandals in their closet – which is okay. However, a pair of Birkenstocks not only provides a greater level of convenience, but the ability to adapt to your look for the day. Think about it – we have this “get up and go” approach to things. We want something that we can put on to run to the store or run to the mall or go to meetup and hangout with some friends. The traditional slide-in rubber sandals don’t always provide that versatility. Birkenstocks offer various styles and materials for something as casual as sweatpants and jeans or sandals that can be worn with jeans, chinos, or even certain styles of dress pants. That is something that you cannot pull off with a pair of rubber sandals. But, if that is your thing, they offer similar footwear at a lower cost than their traditional leather.
Birkenstocks’ origins date back to literally centuries ago. It would be an understatement to say that the company had time to test materials and the durability of the sandals. The soles of Birkenstocks are designed to mold to your foot’s natural shape over time – something that traditional rubber sandals cannot do. The foot-beds are made of thick cork screw which also makes it harder for the sole of the shoe to be impacted by an accidental scraping, scratching, or any other incident that would scuff a normal sandal. All proving that not only is there great durability, but comfort and conformity in them as well.
By now, you should have reconsidered purchasing a pair of Birkenstocks. With the footwear coming in so many different styles which provides versatility, and with the material being so durable, they are worth a second thought.
