Is it 1996? Nope, but Birkenstocks are having another moment nearly twenty years on. We get it, you said you’d never go there again, and so did we. But the ugly shoe reigns over all others in 2014, and it starts with the Spring/Summer sandal – the Birkenstock.
There were versions seen all over SS14 runways at Giambattista Valli, Marni, Givenchy and Celine, and bloggers galore are tapping into the season’s comfiest trend, be it through designer footwear re-makes or the classic brand itself. Sure, you can get platform versions from Topshop, and jeweled studded ones from Giambattista Valli, but Birkenstock has remained popular due to it’s unbeatable comfort factor. And this is something we love for those long summer days; your feet will thank you for it.

The Clothes Line has had a brand new pair of Birkenstocks donated this week, and they are just what you need to stay on trend and comfortable this summer. The gorgeous patent purple pair are bang on trend (hello, did you see those glittery purple Marni sandals above?) and in a UK size 7. They’re brand new, too, which means this pair will honestly last you a lifetime – lets face it, this is one trend that’s bound to come round again and again.
