My company sent me and Amazon gift card. And for a while I couldn’t decide what to spend it on. I was thinking about getting a microphone for podcasting. But it will probably be a while before I do anything with podcasts. So I’m thinking about shoes.
I’m sort of a fanatic when it comes to Birkenstock shoes. They are the most comfortable footwear ever.
I have some rules about Birkenstocks. Mostly one main rule. Never ever let anyone wear them in the first three months. They have cork footbeds that conform to you foot individually. I believe that it takes three months of daily walking for the shoe to conform to your foot. In the three months, the cork under goes a process of shaping.
If people must wear your shoes after that, I would still not recommend it. But after the three month period, their wearing it won’t ruin the shoe. I suspect that the shoes wouldn’t be as comfortable to another person as they have conformed to your foot. Birkenstocks are unique in the way that they are only unique to the person who owns them.
