Disappointment is inevitable when I’m forced each autumn to retire my most-worn summer Birkenstock slide sandals to the back of my closet and transfer over to “real shoes.” I’m never quite ready for tying laces or putting on socks…or bending over to do zipping or buckling or strap tightening of any kind. Slip-on sandals are just so easy. And my brain is always quite pleased with easy — slipping on comfortable sandals, without thinking, as part of my everyday routine as I walk out the door.
Last fall, I handled this inevitable disappointment by transferring immediately from my beloved tan Birkenstock sandals to these easy, cozy, shearing-lined Birkenstock mules.
I wore the Birkenstock Buckley mules happily on MAJOR repeat last fall. So cozy, so easy, and they met all my comfort-shoe requirements. The transition, however, from sandals to lined mules was a little too abrupt for me.
My Comfy Slip-On Sandal Solution For Fall: Shearling-Lined Birkenstocks
This year, I decided I wanted to figure out a way to wear slip-on SANDALS for a bit longer into the fall season. I’m just not ready to part ways with my fave footwear quite yet…and Birkenstocks with socks (while many people rock the heck out of this look) isn’t really my personal style.
Lined Birkenstock sandals quickly became my solution.
They check all the boxes: comfort and support (Birkenstock’s specialty), slip-on/slip-off ease as you’re running out the door… Plus, ample opportunity for my toes to breathe (and of course to show off my new, pretty fall pedicure), BUT with a fabulously furry, soft lining that feels oh-so-good on my feet on slightly crisp fall mornings.
