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 with diverse fashion personas ranging from the Olsen twins to Christina Hendricks (shown above).
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:
