My pink item is something that I LOVE! I look forward every Spring to getting them out and I wear them until I can't take the cold any longer in the Autumn. They're my Birkenstocks! Now, I am not a crunchy, Birkenstock kind of person AT ALL. But as I've gotten older I've become more interested in comfort than in the latest trends. About 9 years ago I had back surgery twice in a two year period. The doctor kept urging me to try Birkenstocks or Dansko shoes, but I would have nothing to do with it. To me they were too pricey and I was nervous about the whole footbed molding to your foot business. What if they were super uncomfortable? You can't return shoes that have been wornThen one day I was watching my favorite channel, QVC, and they were selling Birkies! The price was slightly better than I had seen in stores, but 2 things grabbed me at once. First, I could wear them for 30 days and still return them if I wasn't happy. You can't do that with the ones you buy from the brick and mortar stores. Also, they had much cuter ones than the plain brown and tan suedes I always saw. So I got these adorable thongs with roses all over them, and I've never looked back! This is our 7th summer together.All of these other pictures are from QVC. I just searched Birkenstock and then chose the color pink and got 27 pairs of shoes! Since I bought my rose buds 7 years ago, I've gotten anotherpair in the same style with a denim colored and textured strap and I have a pair of black suede Mary-Jane style for winter.They have been so great for my back and I can wear them standing on those awful linoleum and cement floors, teaching all day.I can't say enough good things about them both for my back and for how they hold up. I know it's not too exciting, but to me these are a major pink plus in my life!
