If you’re a fan of colorful Birkenstocks, you know now is the time to get some of the best colors before they all sell out. (The neutrals are always in stock.) I saw these and immediately wanted them, even though I’m more of one Giza the girl herself — the bold color, the big buckles, they all look great.

I should note that these are velvet, not leather or suede, which was a bit of a surprise when I realized – velvet + sandals seems a bit odd to me, but come to think of it, so does suede. There are also loads of shearling lined Birks sandals available right now!

Readers, what are your thoughts — would you wear velvet birch? For my own $0.02, I think I would, but more for errand shoes than go-everywhere-on-vacation shoes, if that makes sense.

The sandals cost DKK 160 at Zappos and Nordstrom; there is also a lovely midnight blue velvet option.
