Birkenstocks

Seven years ago I bought a pair of Birkenstock sandals, to wear to a Roman feast at Andrew’s house. (What else does one wear with a toga?) They became my regular shoes for wearing around the house and garden, and for walking into town. Seven years later they are beginning to fall apart; the soles are heavily worn and the heels are crumbling. So when I passed by Country Casuals on Market Street I couldn’t resist seeing if they had some replacements, and I was delighted to find exactly the same kind of Birkenstocks that I’d bought seven years ago. I walked home wearing the new sandals, happy with the thought that I’ll be buying another pair in seven years time.

Did you know you can send them in and have the soles replaced? This way you don't have to break in a new pair! I have to get mine sent it, but keep forgetting. :)

I didn’t know that! I found info about repairs on the Birkenstock web site, so I’ll get my old ones sent away. The order form is printing out as I type this…
