Okay, maybe not actual Birkenstocks (are you kidding me? At my age, I’m a sucker for comfort, but my sense of style hasn’t completely evaporated into the ether), but a bit of a cooler, Spanish-made Birk-like sandal.
The weather has been particularly
crap volatile over the last several weeks and I’ve been wanting to wear open-toes, but I’m a little terrified of freaking frostbite afraid. Some of you have forged ahead in this endeavor, getting the first or fourth pedicures of spring and rocking some serious nail art on the toes.
Me? Not so much.
First of all, my “winter-protected” toenails have probably developed into what some might call talons. Side note: yes I am the recipient of and can do without the extra foreign-language commentary when it comes to the state of my post-winter feet. A PedEgg only goes so far…
I’m struggling to muster the courage to fully embrace the sandal with the knowledge that there’s a next-day frost advisory. That means permanently storing any footwear with fur and sock liners at the rear of my closet. Also, I’ve had enough of walking around looking like a Greco-Roman warrior in damn gladiators (see: talons). It’s officially the latter half of May, and weather be damned - it’s time to literally and figuratively jump in the pool, so here’s your Russell Crowe-free-heavy-on-the-cork-and-wedge sandal round-up.
