Shoes had been the family business since 1774, but Konrad Birkenstock took a new spin on his ancestors' business by creating the curved-to-fit Birkenstock shoes sold today.His idea came just in time to rival mass-produced factory footwear.
On the "Kayt Was Here" blog a woman expressed her dismay at flying through Denver International and seeing several men wearing the short pants with birkenstock sandals, calling it the "pants of the devil".
Birkenstock Cozumel Birko-Flor Sandal: This beautifully elegant sandal offers all the creature comforts of a Birkenstock; its synthetic upper, rubber sole and platform bottom are just made to be walked in.
Birkenstock Boston Clog: What's great about this shoe is that you can choose among an oiled leather, suede or fabric upper and still get a manmade sole, adjustable straps and a shock-absorbing heel.
Huggy: Similar to a classic Birkenstock, especially if you choose the caramel color option, the Huggy is an open-toed slingback with an adjustable buckle on the ankle strap and layered top straps.
Not only will you be able to compare prices as you shop, but you'll be getting the same quality and design you'd expect from the Birkenstock brand, only at a cheaper price!
Unisex Medical Shoes: Just as we saw with the Little Kid Skorpios Sandals, no one, not even those in the medical field, need to feel left out of the Birkenstock craze.
Birkenstock Madrid Birko-Flor Sandal: Love this Birko-Flor sandal for its water resistant synthetic alternative to leather; it's a fabric that won't fade or stretch.
Riviera Brown Pebble Grain Birkoflor: For those that like to keep things classic and simple, the Riviera Brown Pebble Grain Birkenstock is the perfect choice.
Slides: Again, looking a lot like a classic Birkenstock, these low-heeled suede slides feature open toes and three fully adjustable buckle straps.
