I have always loved a Birkenstock inspired shoe and so adding these to my footwear repertoire for this spring/summer was a no-brainer.
But for some they are ugly, clumpy and unflattering. And although I appreciate your opinion, may I convince you by telling you that these Marmite sandals are so ‘on trend’, they hurt! But au contraire, they don't hurt at all because unlike flip-flops they don't rub between your toes or wear down so thin at the back that they resemble, and provide as much cushioning as, a used dishcloth. They are ridiculously comfortable.
Give them a try if you haven’t already.
Now, whether you go for these or any other style sandal, I don’t think you’ve quite escaped the hokey cokey routine as I reckon, like me, you’ll find yourself sticking one foot out the front door and back in again trying to decide if the April sun is warm enough for such scantily clad feet.
And unless you're putting the rubbish out, in the dark, on the moon, then socks and sandals are never an option – ya hear me?!
Here are some other choices that may or may not float your boat…(or spaceship!).
