When I was a junior in college five years ago I bought myself a pair of Birkenstocks that I loved. I wore them until they were perfectly conformed to my feet but were also getting slick on the bottom and didn't look good either. I almost took a picture but then I thought who wants to see my crappy old shoes? Probably nobody.
Anyway, it was time for a new pair but Birkenstocks have really fallen out of popularity over the years, giving way to Rainbow flip-flops, Earth Shoes and Danskos. I couldn't find another pair even similar to my old ones--and change is sometimes good. I'd seen someone at church wearing a pair of really cute mary-jane style clogs and she'd told me they were Danskos. I thought they'd be perfect for me because I hate shoes that come up behind my heel.
So when I was buying Suzi some shoes, I ran across these on sale. They normally run in the $100's, but I would never pay that for shoes. They were (and still are) 35% off with free shipping, which is part of the reason I am writing this. They only have black ones left though.
I was so happy when they arrived and they fit. They are perfect because they not only look nice but are also comfortable, which makes them a popular choice amongst women who work on their feet all day. This is the best deal I was able to find. I always check around before buying something.
