New York Fashion Week brought some of the big trends for Spring/Summer 2014 into focus. Get ready for Birkenstocks!

Looks like the fashion world has fallen for these German sandals. We’ve seen them on Heidi Klum, the Olsen twins, Drew Barrymore and on the set of Gossip Girl. We’ve seen them on the runway at Trina Turk, Shades of Grey, Edun and Celine (who is partially responsible for the revival), who introduced us to the cozy fur-lined slip-on in her Spring 2013 show. We’ve even seen them with socks..

I’d been thinking about them for a while but just couldn’t get around the ugly factor. But I gave in on the weekend. I joined the fashion editors at Vogue who have been rocking these in their hallways for years and are only just bringing their secret love into the light of day. And my feet are in heaven! 

With the squishy cork footbed, roomy toe box and thick buckled straps, this sturdy, sensible sole should be embraced by all. The classic Gizeh and Arizona styles seem to be the most popular and we’re seeing them in glossy blacks, metallics, fresh whites, classic tan/mocca and bedazzled and embellished styles. I settled for the Gizeh in Mocca (seen on Heidi Klum) as they’re versatile and will go with everything.

A fresh pedicure is a must if you’re going to rock these!

No matter how you feel about them, they’re back and totally in style.

Feeling em?

If you’re in Sydney pick some up at Birkenstock Junction in Paddington or theiconic.com.au.
