The heat wave that has been happening in SF, has made me obsessed with looking for some good sandals. I got some Salt Water ones at first, and all though I really like those, they did not offer me any support and gave me blisters.
I caved and got some Birkenstocks! I've always wanted a pair of Birkenstocks when I was in high school. I remember wanting a pair of the Boston Clogs. They were way too expensive for me to justify to my parents as a kid though. Now, as an adult, I decided to get some birks. I don't know what's going on with my feet, but I think these birks will give my feet the rest it needs. So far, they have been proven comfy. They feel a little chunky, but I think with more wear, they'll look better.
I wanted the ones with the black buckles, but I couldn't find them in my size anywhere. I think these will do. These are the oiled leather ones. The black has rubbed off on my feet, so beware! Hopefully that will stop eventually. They were true to size for me. I read reviews that people sized down, and although I could size down, I felt like they were a smidgen too small. Any hoot, I know birks aren't for everyone, but I'm a fan! Haters are gonna hate. :)
