It has come to my attention that my feet do not want to wear heels anymore, even low ones, after a year of just wearing Birkenstocks. Can your feet, like….get wider if you don’t wear anything but Birkenstocks and sneakers for a year? Because I am going to have to figure out a way to fix that! I have a wide and vast shoe collection and at some point, I might want to wear some of my heels again. However, that point is clearly not here as I just bought another pair of Birkenstocks (in white), and also a pair of very cute and vaguely retro Reebox because even my normal sneaks feel a little restrictive. Aging is a trip!

Luckily, never have we had MORE options for shoes that hopefully bridge the distance between bare feet and stilettos.
