My new ugly shoes.
It is the first pair of new Birkenstocks I have bought in five years.
I know they aren't the most attractive pair of shoes but they are comfy.
And for some inexplicable reason - trendy.
I have already had to rescue them from my daughter's wardrobe.
Go ugly!

I wore:
Sandals - Birkenstock
Trousers - Gap
Top - Ghost


  1. Haha, I take it she would have never stolen your old ones?
    I can't explain the trend, but I'm sure a lot of birkenstock lovers are rejoicing.
    Chic on the Cheap

  2. Berks never went out of style with a certain group here in Berkeley. Just don't join the Birkenstocks and wooly socks band of folks, LOL!


  3. Personally, I love the brand unfortunately my soles beg to differ! X

    Love ur outfit btw:)


  4. I love them and have three pairs, but no Arizonas. I love the Madrid style and I have a pair of Gizehs too. They look fab on you! Lynne x

  5. Am I the only person in the world who doesn't own a pair of Birkenstocks?! As with all trends, they come and go but if you like something, you like it regardless.
    Hope your presentation went well. xxx

  6. I have to admit I am not a fan of the Birkens but you look fabulous Jane.

  7. Not ugly, stylish, and perfectly combined

  8. Ugly but comfortable and actually so ugly they're fab - I own some so I can say that without appearing rude!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. haha, Go Ugly! Yes, is it that time finally? I've had to wear some ugly shoes for years now because of a bone spur on my heal so I have to baby my feet. I feel like I've missed out on a whole world of shoes I would rather be wearing. I love Birkenstocks that are colored like yours. I think the light brown suede ones look a little dumpy. But you're lucky you can wear them really. I have to wear super supportive soles like Danskos all the time. Have a great week!

  10. I too have bought a pair of ugly sandals this year. And I just don't care because they are sooooo comfy and I could walk miles in them. I can easily just not look at my feet, simple!

  11. I agree, they are so comfy. Perfect for a day at work :-) xx
