I miss my Birckenstock. It was my trusty companion. Although I have re-glued the sole twice already, other than that, it has remained faithful. I worn it everywhere: hiked it, soaked it in mud, washed in a river, and waddled in the sea. It looks cool with jeans, shorts, skirts, and even with a dress. It’s been with me in my most exciting adventures, relaxing afternoon strolls, and in my saddest walks.
