Birkenstocks have been around for decades, popular among the surfers, skaters and deadheads. I personally associated them with the Haight Ashbury, a part of SF I hardly visited. Mind you not because I didn’t want to, just the places I frequented were in South Beach, the Mission, Soma, and the Marina.

I finally made my purchase, I made it right after I saw this photo. I hesitated because I have narrow feet and I’ve made many mistakes, example is the Donald Pliner version I bought many years ago, that I still own. I had to get Mr. Santos, the best cobbler in SF to pad them for me.

Birkenstocks $145

It wasn’t until the 1990’s that the fashion set finally joined the bandwagon, all thanks to Kate Moss, the ultimate ‘It Girl” about town. I always felt they were too granola for me, but I’ve changed my mind. I just wish I could wear them to the office.

Now, I just hope they fit so that I can purchase the other two colors and then maybe get creative with my choices.

Here’s to running around chic…..
