    22 Reasons Birkenstocks Are The Absolute Best Shoe Ever

    This one’s for us millennial hippies!

    I don't get Birkenstocks because I was in high school when they were cool and they remind me of being a nerd. I just don't understand how they made such a comeback so quick.

    Miley couldn't be more wrong! Here's why Birkenstocks are totally awesome:

    1. First of all, you can get Birkenstocks in a ton of different colors or styles, there are literally hundreds of options.

    The footbed contours to your arches, and gives you the perfect amount of support.
