If you know people who are positively in love with their Birkenstocks, then you probably don’t need to be told that Birks are so much more than just a comfortable shoe. They’re the basis of an entire way of life. The Birkenstock brand has been around in one form or another ever since the late 1700s, so you’re talking about a name that’s as timeless as it is popular.
Birkenstock wrote the book on comfort footwear that’s actually good for your feet. They look amazing with everything, and they’re completely symbolic of the laid-back, world-savvy way of life. Birkenstock products also make amazing holiday gifts. The following are just a few tips to consider when shopping for the Birkenstock-lovers in your life this season.
1. Try a sandal that breaks the style mode.
We personally think that it’s not possible to own too many pairs of the classic slides, but at the end of the day, Birkenstock might have too many styles to try them all. That said, the holidays are the perfect time to treat your favorite shoe-lover to a new Birkenstock sandal that’s a little different.
The Mayari Birko-Flor sandal in antique lace is a gorgeous example of the different Birkenstock styles. It features their signature cork footbed but adds additional visual interest with thinner straps and a graceful toe loop. In other words, these are perfect casual shoes that offer style and comfort. Plus, they come in lots of color options. From moss to hot pink to fire engine red, there’s a beautiful Birkenstock color to match every personality.
2. Keep their feet cozy this winter with a Birkenstock boot.
At this point, Birkenstocks are such an iconic part of pop culture that everyone associates the name with their signature sandals. What you may not be aware of is that Birkenstock also makes great boots as well. In other words, the Birkenstock-lover in your life no longer has to either wait patiently for summer to wear their favorite brand.
One of our favorite offerings this season is the Birkenstock Sarnia. It comes with all the same comfort and support you’d expect from this label, but this stylish little bootie will see you through the fall, winter, and early spring with ease. Surprise that special someone in your life with a pair underneath the holiday tree this season!
3. Try a clog that redefines an iconic style.
These days, clogs are for more than just puttering around the garden or doing housework in comfort. Over the past few years, they’ve graduated to an official style status as well. Today’s clogs aren’t just comfortable and supportive enough for practical wear. A growing selection of styles, colors, and patterns has turned them into a stylish fashion choice as well.
That said, can you think of a comfort shoe that could possibly be more appealing than a Birkenstock clog? The Boston Birkenstock is a modern answer to the classic clog, and anyone who loves Birks would be thrilled to own a pair. Consider choosing a versatile color that blends with your recipient’s wardrobe.
4. Take comfort to the next level with some Birkenstock socks.
How do you top a Birkenstock boot you’ll want to wear all winter long? We think a couple of pairs of Birkenstock knee-high socks to go with them would be absolutely ideal. Yes, Birkenstock does indeed make socks, and they’re every bit as comfortable and wearable as you’d hope.
Birkenstock socks are made from a premium cotton-poly blend that’s equal parts breathable and durable. They also feature ribbed shafts for a secure fit that’s just right—not too tight, but not too loose—and a beautiful brindled knit pattern that looks as good as it feels. Last but not least, each pair features Birkenstock’s trademark logo to finish it off to perfection. What Birkenstock lovers wouldn’t love to find pairs of those in their holiday stockings? Pick up a pair or two to add to their stocking to keep the holiday season merry and bright!
