I have a hard time with shoes, namely with size and comfort. I can never seem to find summer shoes that don't give me blisters. I have a pair of go-to summer sandals that are beyond comfortable, but they're ancient and look terribly out of place with what I usually wear out of the house. I'm more mindful of this now that I have to teach a few classes in the warmer months. I've been meaning to try a pair of Gizehs from Birkenstock, so I decided to go for it when I saw them on super sale on Amazon. I bought 2 pair: orange patent leather and black patent leather. Incidentally, the black pair was only 26 Euro.
This is not a fashion blog (clearly), but I thought I'd share. This is probably the only model of Birks that I see Germans wear outside (most other models are for house shoes only), so I hope I don't get any tickets from the fashion police! I really do like their shape and form and I think the orange pair will be fun. Fingers crossed they're as comfy as my other Birks!
What about you? What are your go-to comfortable shoes? I'm a longtime fan of Birkenstock, Keen, Born and Privo. With all the walking we do here in Germany, comfort is key.
