Birkenstocks are Hot — But How?

Barbie can even make these sandals cool
Fri 15 Sep 2023



This month, Google searches for Birkenstock sandals went up by 300 per cent. Birkenstocks are all the rage.

Wait, but how? When I wore Birkenstocks 20 years ago, they were super daggy. I scared away people, especially if I wore them with socks and cargo shorts.

But they're all the rage because Margot Robbie wears them in the movie Barbie. It's as simple as that.

What makes something fashionable isn't the thing itself, but who wears them.

Sadly, that means that no matter what I wear, I will be out of fashion. The problem isn't what I wear, the problem is me.

Society will never see me as fashionable.

But the Bible says that we are treasured by Jesus—He sees us as fashionable. Jesus wants to be seen with us.

But more than this, Jesus fashions us to make us fashionable.

So go out and rock the cargo shorts, socks and sandals Not even Margot Robbie can make that look cool. But you'll always look fabulous in the eyes of Jesus.
