Though every time of year is Birkenstock season, Summer is officially here, and your toes are likely ready to break free from all the closed-toe shoes you wore in colder weather.

Birkenstock sandals are the normcore trend you’ve been waiting for. To be totally honest, the trend never goes out of style and it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Birkenstocks are chunky yet effortless — and take it from a sandal devotee, they’re the most comfortable pair you’ll probably ever wear.

And 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 Birkensocks are more ubiquitous than ever.

You can shop everything from neon pink to classic black, shearling to colorblock. Designers like Valentino, Rick Owens, and more have collaborated on capsule collections. And a pair of sandals can range from $99 to a few hundred, depending on your designer of choice.

The best part is they look good with everything. Not convinced? Just check out the celebrities below. Style your Birkenstocks with a gingham dress like Reese Witherspoon, jean shorts and a cotton tee like Kendall Jenner, or suiting like Tracee Ellis Ross. You can even go for a more controversial look like Gigi Hadid, styling them with a structured shirt dress. The world is your oyster.
