red velvet birkenstocks with large gold buckles

Something on your mind? Chat about it here.

If you’re fan of colorful Birkenstocks, you know that now is the time to get some of the best colors before they all sell out. (The neutrals are always in stock.) I saw these and immediately wanted them, even though I’m more of a Gizeh girl myself — the bold color, the big buckles, they all look great.

I should note that these are velvet, not leather or suede, which was a bit of a surprise when I realized it — velvet + sandals seems a bit weird to me, but I guess if I think about it so does suede. There are also a ton of shearling-lined Birks sandals out right now!

Readers, what are your thoughts — would you wear velvet Birks? For my own $.02, I think I would, but more for errand shoes than walking-everywhere-on-vacation shoes, if that makes sense.

The sandals are $160 at Zappos and Nordstrom; there’s also a lovely midnight blue velvet option.
