While I was scanning through the numerous S/S 14′ RTW collections, I noticed a reoccurring theme. Models were no longer strutting down the runway in 7 inch heels. Instead, they’re appeared to be wearing what looked like Birkenstock sandals. No, that is not a typo you just read. Every runway from Céline to Givenchy, models appeared to have resorted from gorgeous snakeskin heels to sporty, Birkenstock-like sandals.
It would appear that this particular runway craze has turned into a full on Spring trend. Now I’m not 100% ready to toss my heels aside just yet. However, I will say that the trend is slightly more comfortable than my pair of 6-inch Manolo’s. And I guess if brands like Marni and Giambatista Vali are among the many to get behind the trend, then it has to be chic right?
