new BirkenstocksPosted: September 3, 2018 Filed under: SoCal Life Leave a comment
I had my most recent pair of Birkenstocks for a very long time. I don’t know how long, probably ten years, perhaps more. They are made to last.
Recently, however, I noticed some nasty chafing on the top of my right foot. Taking a look I saw that the leather had worn through, exposing the underside of the buckle. Yikes!
I don’t make purchases lightly these days, and Birkenstocks are not cheap and rarely if ever on sale. They are an important part of my day, however. I put them on each evening. I knew that buying a cheaper brand of sandal simply would not be the same.
So I chose to spend the money, and I’m glad I did. I’m expecting another ten years out of this pair.
