We’ve got nothing against Birkenstocks, the comfort-first shoe brand has been around for more than 250 years and going stronger than ever thanks to a few loungewear-centric years and a major ugly sandal trend. Since the clunky sandal and clog trend is here to stay, we thought you may need a few alternatives and these are some our faves…
5 Sustainable Chunky Sandal Alternatives To Birkinstocks
ALOHAS Harper Sandals | Don’t sleep on the Alohas brand. We’ve been shopping the brand head-to-toe lately and their Harper sandals are a best-seller. We love the gold details and sleek, layered footbed to ground down almost any outfit.
Jamie Haller Double Buckle Sandals | Fashion insider, Jamie Haller can do it all. Her timeless shoe designs are made of the finest materials and beloved by girls in the know. These buttery leather sandals are a sleeker take on the heavy sandal look for those who just can’t deal with a shoe that weighs more than their handbag!
M.GEMI The Matilde Due Sandals | M.Gemi makes classic Italian leather shoes and accessories and their Matilde sandal is almost too pretty to wear. Leather-covered buckles give this pair a super-sleek and monochromatic look we love.
Jenni Kayne Oiled Leather Moc Clog | More of a chunky clogs person? We’re loving these Jenni Kayne clogs in a neutral color that’s easy to wear and will streamline your silhouette more than most other ‘ugly shoes’.
Freedom Moses Two Band Slides | Freedom Moses makes vegan, fair-trade and sustainable slides that are near-irresistible to shop. Check out their full line of fun prints for women and children. We’re partial to this splatterpaint moment, but check out their tie dye collection if you want to go full crunch.
Finally, there’s nothing wrong with an actual pair of OG Birks. Add these classics to cart for the ultimate transitional weather pick.
