The Essential Summer Sandal

Ladies, meet my new love... the Birkenstock Arizona*. My word, these shoes are glorious.

If, like me, you're a bit of a Pinterest fiend, you'll have spotted these sandals on the feet of Hollywood actresses, supermodels and fashionistas around the world for around a year or so.

The Arizona is the epitome of ugly pretty. Technically it shouldn't work, but somehow, it just does. 

With it's moulded cork footbed providing actual arch support (an unusual feature in my shoe collection), these shoes are literally the most comfortable thing I have ever put on my feet. On our first outing I did more than 15000 steps walking round Pompeii. The next day I put them on and happily walked around Naples for 12 hours, which incidentally left them filthy. Fortunately they're easy to clean...

I've been wearing my Birkenstocks with everythingJeans, shorts, maxi dresses, sun dresses. In fact I've just ordered a new skirt which I think will look perfect with these beauties.

I'm usually a 5 or 5 1/2 and have fairly broad feet. I picked these up from Gemini Woman online (link!) in a size 5. They're the narrow style and fit perfectly. 

I was lucky enough to meet the Claire, the owner of Gemini Woman and her lovely team at a blogger event back in February. You can read all about it here. If you happen to be in Stratford upon Avon be sure to pop into the shop and say hello! 

Have you invested in a pair of Birkenstocks yet?
