I’m planning to wear my Arizona Birkenstocks all over town this summer. I’ve had them a couple weeks now and they have taken a little longer to break in than my older Gizeh Birks that were soft and comfortable right out of the box. I’m breaking them in with the straps set really wide, and then as they get more comfortable will slowly loosen the straps. I got the straps in Black Oiled Leather since I thought they looked a little more polished than the more hippy traditional tan suede, and I am pretty happy with my choice. I’m picturing these both with army pants (pictured above) and with a sleek patterned pencil skirt. Bring on the summer weather!
