There are a few things in this world that just make sense like late-night $1 pizza, great finds at sample sales and Ugg boots in the winter, but these shearling lined Birkenstocks do not. For years, girls around the country (even in Florida) have been slipping their feet into Uggs when the temperatures drop in the winter. These furry hot boxes are the epitome of warmth, comfort and basic b***h-ness. They may be Ugg-ly, but one thing is for sure–they keep your feet warm and toasty. These Birkenstocks, on the other hand, will not.
While they may be lined with shearling, these shoes will not keep your feet warm in the seasons to come. Whether they’re covered in fur or not your toes will still be exposed to the harsh winter weather. So why is Birkenstock doing this? Well, I think its their last attempt to keep the ugly sandal trend going. They probably thought “Why not make our Arizona Sandal and the shearling trend have a baby? Maybe people will be dumb enough to think these will keep there feet warm (and dry) in the winter.” If this is in fact what our friends over at Birkenstock thought, then they were right. There are already reviews on Nordstrom.com about how great theses sandals are for fall and winter. Ha! Give us a break. We’ll be sticking to our Ugg BOOTS this season.
What do you think of these new shearling lined sandals? Let us know in the comments below.
