new Birkenstocks

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.

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.
