I Thought I’d Regret Buying These $45 Sandals, But I Wear Them All the Time Now

Ronald A. Hurley

As I highlighted recently, I honestly never thought I’d lean into the double-strap-sandal trend so much. In the sandal realm, pool slides reigned supreme in my eyes. That said, after spotting a few of my favorite style setters going all-in on the Birkenstock look, in particular, I started warming up to the idea. Yep, so much so that I just purchased the $45 Birkenstock Arizona sandals.

While there is a range of Birks out there, I liked this specific style best because the price point was just right. Plus, they’re comfy and classic yet modern, and I think they bring a cool twist to a look. In fact, I particularly like pairing my Nike crew socks with them for a fresh vibe. They’re now a permanent fixture in my summer shoe rotation.
