It’s time to reinvent the Birkenstock sandal with a modern twist and tie them in with your sports inspired wear. Take not from these street style taste-makers and wear with sleek monochrome pants, boyfriend jeans or dress down a girly playsuit. The simple style makes them extremely versatile hence why they are our item of the week!
