Every summer, a sandal trend emerges from the trenches of winter. Last year, sporty sandals under nineties-popular brands like Teva and Chacos made a comeback. The year before that, pancake-flat slides of every color and brand were everywhere. This summer, the classic Birkenstock sandal we know and love gets a facelift: These Arizona-style platforms are the perfect mix between sophisticated and playful. Plus, you know they’re comfortable because they’ve got Birkenstock’s signature cork footbed above an ultra-light and very elastic platform that adds extra cushioning and a stylish lift.
