The Search For A Sexy Pair Of Birkenstock Sandals

I’m not sure if ‘sexy’ and ‘Birkenstock’ are two words that people would assume go together, but hey, I am a sexy babe on the hunt for a pair of sleek Birkenstocks for both spring and summer.

I’ve been a Birkenstock fan since middle school — back when all of my friends and I were rocking the classic clogs. The brand has always been what I would consider good ol’ reliable: hella comfortable clogs, slides and sandals. But to call Birkenstocks sexy…that hadn’t ever been a thought that crossed my mind when thinking of the tried-and-true classic that is the Birk.

Sexy Birkenstocks? I Found 6 Pairs

This year, Birkenstock is taking new risks with their spring collection, and while I have yet to get my hands on a pair of the new Arizona Split Nubuck Leather Sandals, I did find some seriously stellar slides, that (yep, you guessed it) are sexy!

The Birkenstock Madrid Torty Slide Sandal is simply stunning and beyond comfortable too. They come in this gorgeous almond leather and are accented with oversized tortious shell buckles that make the sandal feel sleek and sexy. They were the last of the seven pairs of sandals to arrive to my door, and let me tell you — it was worth the wait, because they were love at first sight. I love that Birkenstock is developing new sandals and slides! All of the slides I found are perfect for a spring sandal refresh!

You all already know that I’ve fallen for one sexy pair of Birks, but let’s get into all the other seriously good sandals from Birkenstock! I found six pairs of Birkenstocks that all have varying levels of that va-va-voom sex appeal.

Maybe it’s the sleek almond color, maybe it’s the tortoiseshell accented buckles…but there’s something about this color combo that I think is so sexy. I love that the slide has one thick velvety leather strap and these are absolutely my vibe. Get ready y’all, because I am quite certain these will be one of my most-worn pairs of sandals this upcoming spring and summer. The Madrid Torty Slide is both trendy and sexy for the season, while also simultaneously designed with Birkenstock’s legendary footbed for time-tested comfort.


2. Papillio By Birkenstock Daytona Genuine Shearling-Lined Platform Sandal

Two things I am a total sucker for: platforms and anything that is lined with plush shearling. And these have both! I personally think part of a good sex appeal is how the material feels to you, and these shearling-lined platforms feel silky soft. I am rating these as a B+ on the sexy scale.


3. Papillio by Birkenstock Soley Wedge Sandal

I love a good wedge sandal, and these are beyond comfortable. They aren’t too high either, which is ideal for a long night of dancing. I personally think the ginger brown I ordered is a perfect nude color for my skin tone, and these also are available in soft pink and black. The outfit I am wearing above is exactly what I like to strut in when I am headed to brunch with my besties.


4. Papillio by Birkenstock Namica Rivets Wedge Slide Sandal

I really loved the look of these when I ordered them online, and loved how they look in person, but unfortunately, they are quite snug on my wide feet. I do think the soft leather would eventually stretch and believe that these would be much more comfortable and a few wears. This wedge slide sandal has comfort in mind. I personally think the mini gold studs add an extra element of va-va-voom to the sandal!

5. Birkenstock Yao Slide Sandal

The Yao Slide feels the most similar to the classic styles of Birkenstock, with a slight twist. The angular thin straps paired with gold detailing elevate the look of the slide. Would I call these sexy? Most likely not, but I do think they are sleek and cute.


6. Birkenstock Honolulu Flip Flop

Can flip flops be sexy?! I would argue yes. I had a sexy pair of Tory Burch flip flops for years, and every time I wore them I felt so good. These Honolulu flip flops don’t give me the same butterflies as my old Tory’s did, but they are definitely a sleeker take on the traditional flip flop. These are waterproof and feel like a great walking sandal.


Well, I have to say I feel like I found a few sexy pair of Birkenstock slides, and the clear winner for me are the Madrid Torty Slides. So I have to know, do any of these slides speak sexy to you, and which pair are your favorite?

  1. Thanks for these try-ons. I’m in the market for new Birks this year, and I’m trying to decide! I wish the Yao Slides came in more colors. The Tortys are really good.

  2. I’m also curious about the Madrids – they’re so cute but I have a narrow foot and they just look like they’d slide out when I walk. Do they stay on your feet pretty well?
