I wore a pair of bronze Birkenstocks whilst travelling in 2006 for an entire summer. I loved them and possibly couldn’t have seen all that I saw if it wasn’t for those sole saviours.
7 years on, and I’m back in them again…but for some they still have the backlash of naff tourist about them. I posted a photo on Instagram and got a real mixed response.
It’s shallow, I know, but the real reason I bought a pair was not because I suddenly remembered how comfortable (and useful) they were but when I noticed them in the Celine S/S 13 show…
