Like most items in fashion, after they are temporarily forgotten... they eventually have their updated look in the spotlight cycle again. Lately, the Birkenstock sandal has been on the style radar, only this time they managed to make a re-interpreted entrance into the world of high fashion. The updated version has been featured in fashion editorials, on style editors, and style setters lists all over the place, but this time around styled with a much more chic approach. I recently read this article in Vogue about the reappearance of the Birkenstock, and found it interesting that so many people have different opinions about the original hippie sandal.
As a 31 year old woman, I can say that I now fully embrace the easy style and simple comfort of the Birkenstock and am happy to see it’s new found presence on the chic side of fashion!
These editorial images of model Miranda Kerr sporting the "newly revised look" of the Arizona Birkenstock sandals, are proof that they can be chic when styled so.
