Some Sandal Reviews – Birkenstock and Blahnik

Sale PSA: There are some amazing designer reductions going on around the web. I’m still hunting, but a few treasures – this super classic black cashmere poncho by Tomas Maier, now 70% off (still full price at Barney’s!), a ruffled twill dress from Isabel Marant, now 70% off/$107, a beautiful lace v-neck dress from DVF, now 70$ off/$134, and pastel suede Valentino ankle wrap ballet flats, now 70% off. Yes – all 70%!! And there’s so much more…

Today I thought I’d share some shoes I recently purchased, all three which I love. I did take modeling photos, but please have pity on my poor pregnancy cankles – to publish them would be to do the shoes an injustice, and my feet at this stage in my pregnancy are a memory I can do without.

Birkenstock Gizeh Soft Footbed in Copper. My love for the Gizeh style has been well documented (by myself) over the years, and I still haven’t found a better “multiple miles long walk” sandal. When I saw the soft rose gold color of these, I knew I had to order them – and I love that they have the soft footbed too! Why don’t more Gizehs come with these?

So far the white footbed has survived quite nicely, though I still have a beat up black pair that I use when going to dirtier destinations (like the farm with my son).

By the way, I should note that my husband is really, really not a fan of these. I usually try to consider his feelings but with these I just said – sorry!

Also, if out of stock, there are some on Zappos too, though inventory in general appears low. Continue Reading
