You Should All Own a Pair of Birkenstocks

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Muhlenberg chapter.

As college students, we do A LOT of walking throughout our day. When I began college, I knew that I would have to invest in a nice pair of comfortable shoes that I could easily throw on. So, I decided to get myself a pair of Birkenstocks. Now, don’t get me wrong, I used to think that they were the most hideous shoes ever. However, I have now been converted to a Birkenstock lover and they have become a footwear staple in my wardrobe! 

Here are many reasons why you should own a pair of Birkenstocks: 

They’re comfortable!

Yup, that’s right! Birkenstocks are great because they mold to your feet. Birkenstocks provide your feet with extra toe room that allows your toes to move naturally. This helps promote better balance and correct foot alignment. They’re also designed with a contoured footbed with four arches to insure even weight distribution and better posture. 

They’re super versatile!

You can wear with anything, whether it’s jeans and a t-shirt or even a dress. They look great with anything, and they can definitely add a unique touch to your outfit! My personal favorite way to wear them is a simple, basic outfit and some cute or funky socks.

You can wear them every season!

Whether there is rain or shine, Birkenstocks are perfect for any weather. They’re perfect for the beach during the summertime. I have even worn them in the snow, and they have yet to disappoint me.

They come in different patterns!

Birkenstocks are made for anyone and everyone! You heard me! They come in many different styles and patterns from the classic black and brown to polka-dots, glitter, metallics, Disney characters, and much more. I guarantee that there is a style made for everyone.

They’re durable!   

Birkenstocks are a such a great investment because they last forever! No matter how much you wear them, they will always remain comfortable. 

Lastly, no matter what anyone says about Birkenstocks, don’t be afraid to rock them! I promise you won’t regret getting a pair. After all, they do birken-rock.
