    I wear birks for style and comfort (all about that ugly shoe trend!!), so I get a couple of pairs every year, sometimes more. I don't really think of them quite as utilitarian as you do!

    Do you keep all those pairs or donate? Just curious! That's a lot of birks!

    Iím guessing she keeps them all.

    Kindra, which styles do you recommend for a newbie? I want to get my first pair but Iím not sure which ones to get. DD (13) has basic black Arizonas. But I want something more exciting, either a more feminine style or a more ďfancyĒ material. I like the look of the miyari ones, but I found the thing between the toes to be irritating, mostly in the non-leather ones.

    Default Birkenstock Fans

    Look at Yao in white (rose gold buckle) or rose gold. No center toe thing. Super feminine.

    White or tan suede Arizonas are worn by all the bloggers right now. I love them both and they are trendy (Joanna Gaines has been wearing tan suede every day).

    You canít go wrong with any Metallics.

    I love my classic silver gizeh but those might bother you.

    Take a look at anthro or free people to get ideas.

    To those asking - I canít wear cute flip flops or most (all!) other sandals. My various birks get a ton of wear.

    I love those Yao styles ones, but hate that they only come in narrow.

    I don't know if they are going to break in at all. I may play with the buckle a bit. The problem is that I wore them last week on vacation. They look great with dresses!

    Also love the white Arizonas, but I don't think I need another pair.
    I recently got Oofos after reading about them here and now I don't want to wear anything else. I have wide feet and rheumatoid arthritis in addition to extremely high arches. They are like walking on a dream. They don't lend themselves to my line of work (helping people downsize) or I'd be wearing them everyday.

    I'm glad you like them! I commuted in my gold pair today!

    Just wanted to update that I tried the metallic copper Yao and they definitely run narrow and they have a weird non suede footbed so even if they fit width wise I donít know if I wouldíve kept them because I didnít care for the insole.
