こんばんは。How’s it going?
While traveling, I often wore my plain rubber flip-flops, but I wanted something with a little more style, even if that style is somewhat polarizing. 😛 In Morocco, I saw a few people wearing leather sandals, and they looked comfy, but I didn’t really shop for any… however, I have wanted Birkenstocks for a while now so I kind of had my heart set on a pair.
Back in Austin, I went to the InStep store and checked out all the colors and got fitted with a pair of size 39 regulars. The people who work at InStep are extremely knowledgeable (almost fanatical) about Birkenstocks, so the service was amazing. After I bought my sandals, the salesperson even said, “Welcome to Birkenstock”. So funny!
You aren’t supposed to wear these sandals for more than a couple hours a day after you first get them so that your feet get used to them (there’s even a warning sticker in the box), but apparently, after a couple weeks, they will turn into “the most comfortable shoes you ever owned”. We’ll see!
I hope you had a nice Thursday!
