We’ve been discussing the resurgence of Birkenstocks since April, and still haven’t decided if they’re fashionable, or even cute. They’ve even been compared to Crocs and Uggs by the non-normcore among us. It seems like the perfect time to make up a nickname for the formally granola-loving minimalist’s favorite shoe that is now back in style, and staying. You should be thankful, they can actually look cool and you can rest assured that what you picture the far left liberal flower child, lazy hippie, earth loving Birkenstock wearers from circa 1995, is an image that should no longer be ingrained in your brain. The unisex comfort shoe that was once considered average is now a staple in wardrobes.
