i settled on a unionmade version of the birkenstock boston clog
i am going to tell you why.
1. i wanted a pair of slip on shoes
i should to emphasize want because i definitely do not need more footwear but i was looking for something other than my penny loafers to slip on when i was in a rush because i feel silly when i run out of the house in sweats and penny loafers.
2. i have always wanted a pair of birkenstock boston clogs.
i don’t know if it is because of my days going to summer camp with oh so many dave matthews band loving, north shore living jews or seeing the 6 pairs of black leather versions in my dad’s closet on a regular basis but i have always wanted a pair.
3. i think they look good
okay, i said it, these puppies are a bit original and exclusive… and they look good. i know the stigma surrounding them and it was hard for me to get past it but i feel how i feel.
4. they are coming back into style
i was reminded of this wax wayne article
and it was confirmed by this recent headlong dive article
5. they are comfy as fuck
yes, they are. don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. my father always has said birkenstocks are “medicine for the feet” and i agree whole heartedly
i went back and forth on purchasing them about 8 times and i am oh so happy i pulled the trigger.
