Birkenstock: anywhere, any age

November 22, 2010 1 comment

There’s really no better traveling companion than a good old pair of Birkenstock. I’ve had mine for 14 years and counting.

In preparation of our RoundTheWorld, yesterday we took a mini family trip to the flagship store in Covent Garden in London to get a pair for Marcelo and for my husband. Yes, even for Ceki! Ever since I saw some cool dudes in Aix en Provence shopping the market with their brown Birkenstocks, I’ve put behind the idea that they’re not sexy shoes. Too bad my little Amalya is still a size 23. They start at 24. More on what I am packing for her later…

This photo of my right foot was taken in Sulawesi, Indonesia, backpacking in 2003.

Did you know that Birkenstocks have been around for over 200 years? And did you also know they have a vegan line?
