The Lust List: Updated Birkenstocks

Birkenstock Sandals in Paradise

You may remember birkenstocks from the ’90s, but the sandal first gained popularity in the late ’60s and became a festival staple for much of the ’70s. For years, the molded cork footbed and clunky double straps were considered the “ugly shoe,” the shameful footwear secret that dared not leave the confines of your home. But in recent seasons, a revamped version of the sturdy slide-on has emerged, and it’s no longer solely about forgoing style for comfort. This summer, don’t be embarrassed to rock your updated birckenstocks to the beach, the pool, or a barbecue. Look for styles emblazoned with prints, metallics, and even a mini-platform.
