If The Shoe Fits...

This past weekend I bought my first pair of genuine Birkenstocks. (I've owned sandals of a similar design in the past, but never the Thing Itself.) I can't say that this officially makes me a genuine granola-eating, NPR-listening Liberal -- I think that's been more or less a given for quite some time now -- but it certainly contributes to my looking the part.

And, yes, they're very comfortable.

you DO got to Folk Fest ... I think you were half-way to Birkenstock already. :)

I have a pair of these too, but I don't often wear them out of the apartment (partially because of the connotations, but moreso because the sidewalks in my neighborhood are dangerous). But, they are comfortable.
I did wear them once as part of a "European tourist" costume, with black socks, of course.

Yes, Dave, that should have been the third in the trio of signs.

I guess mine were poorly fitted.. because they were the cruelest shoes I ever owned.

Which is why, after years of them gnarling my feet like claws, I left them atop a bag of trash at Fest. And took photographic evidence that I did, so I wouldn't forget (which I did, until I saw the photo).
