I acted like I was 18 and bought a pair of sandals from American Eagle (ae.com) a couple of months ago and I love them. So, I went back to the site today to order another pair because I was positive they’re on clearance and I live in perpetual summer. As it turns out, they were and they’re gone.
But anywho – I was pleased to see this when I visited to the sandals page.
The return of birkenstocks.

Call me a crazy hippy, call me a nerd, I prefer you call me, “retro-hip.”
I LOVED birkenstocks back in my high school/college days. LOVED them. I remember saving up pretty much the entire summer my freshman year of high school for $110, 3-strap, cocoa brown “nubuck” birks. By them time I got them, I think it was late August. Then two months later it snowed. Ah, the brutal weather realities of living in Ohio.
I’m happy to see that Generation Z’ers (or whatever they are) have the opportunity to fall in love with them. However, on behalf of all Generation X’ ers – I implore you not to wear socks with them. Ever. Even really cool wool socks.
