Along with Crocs and Uggs, Birkenstocks are the kind of shoes that really divide opinion.
There are those who practically live in their thick-soled sandals, declaring them the comfiest you’ll ever wear. But then there are the detractors who say they wouldn’t be caught dead in such clunky, shapeless footwear.
We would have thought most fashion designers would fall firmly in the latter camp, which is why we were surprised to see models on the Valentino catwalk at Men’s Paris Fashion Week wearing Birkenstocks.
