So I see the Birkenstock style sandal popping up everywhere. I want to give it a try but on a budget. I'm afraid the feeling for this trend will pass quickly for me, so I would like to try the style for less. Any ideas where I can find a similar style in black or white? —Monica
I was really hoping we could avoid having this discussion, but I'm here to answer your questions, so here goes! Birkenstocks have become a hot shoe trend for spring, having officially made the transition from fashion "don't" to fashion "do". We've seen them on celebs such as the Olsens, Heidi Klum, and fashion blogger Leandra Medine from The Man Repeller for a while now.
For those interested in the real thing, you can find Birkenstocks for under $100 on sites like AMAZON.COM, ZAPPOS.COM and 6PM.COM (this pair of Gizahs is unique and just $37, or the Kairo in white for $58.)
Now, on to some looks for less:
