Cooler than Crocs, Havaianas and Teva combined (or that’s how it’s playing out in my mind anyway) is Birkenstock’s unisex Arizona Eva, their rendition of a rubber sandal in a classic Birkenstock style. Available in Black, Blue, Khaki and White, they are supremely lightweight, waterproof and yet still remarkably stylish (can you imagine a pair match with say, cuffed chinos and a simple white top?). They are also well-priced, with a pair of these retailing for SGD49 in Singapore, and are most definitely a step-up from rubber thongs that are the bane of our local streetscape.
Available at Birkenstock boutiques across Singapore (or, what’s left of them anyway since they have been selling really well), the harder they are to get just makes me even more obsessed with collecting the ones I really, really want.
One more thing before I go. Sizing is a tad odd as far as these sandals go, so do take note especially if you are ordering online. I’m usually a 42, but for these I’m a 40. Weird, I know but if the shoe fits…
