I wasn’t sure this day would ever arrive, but it has. I finally caved and got a pair of Boston Birkenstocks. It took me a while to warm up to them but they’re casual and comfortable and the shearling-lined style is basically a house slipper you’re allowed to wear outdoors. I LOVE. But here is a PRO TIP! If you are struggling to find them in stock (they're sold out everywhere), here's the shopping hack that worked for me: You'll notice that this style in stone is sold out in all regular sizes, but if you click "Narrow" there are several sizes left. My foot is not particularly narrow (I only ever purchase the standard "medium" width shoes) but by selecting the narrow option and going up one full size, I somehow was able to get a pair of Bostons that fit perfectly. No, this does not make any sense to me either. I'd heard this for years and thought it was an urban legend until I tried it for myself with these and it worked perfectly.
