Birkenstock sandals are the normcore trend that combines fashion and comfort. The ‘ugly’ sandals never go out of style, but right now they’re having a big moment — and they show no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
The reason for their popularity? Birkenstocks are chunky yet effortless — and take it from a sandal devotee, they’re the most comfortable pair you’ll ever wear. While there was always a healthy array of styles to choose from — suedes and leathers; browns, blacks, and whites — the selection is endless now that the Birkenstocks are more ubiquitous than ever.
Due to their chunky build and famously simple design, they look good with everything if you’re brave enough to try. Style your Birkenstocks with a gingham dress like Reese Witherspoon, jean shorts and a cotton tee like Kendall Jenner, or structured suiting like Tracee Ellis Ross. You can even go for a more controversial look like Gigi Hadid and pair them with a structured shirt dress. The options are literally endless.
