Birkenstock Como Habana Oiled Leather Review
When you hear the name Birkenstock, what do you think of? Hippies, 80’s and 90’s, Germany, Boulder, last forever? For me, that’s exactly what I think of. I remember growing up and having a pair of Birkenstock’s that seemed to last forever, well 7 years. They pretty much went with me everywhere I went, yes I was one that wore socks with Birkenstock’s in the winter.
While I loved my Birkenstock’s while I was younger, it seemed that flip flops became the preferred sandal and Birkenstock’s took a seat on the sidelines in the fashion world. Today, I feel Birkenstock’s are starting to make a small comeback in the ever competitive sandal world. I recently tested out the Birkenstock Habana Oiled Leather Como sandals and reconnected with my love for the sandal brand. It reminds me that footwear maker not only makes a good sandal for the foot, but they don’t look half bad either.
One of the features that I like about Birkenstock’s including the Habana Oiled Leather Como is the firm arch support. It is a very supportive arch, so if you are on your feet for long periods of time, your arch won’t have to sacrifice. Often times in many flip flops, you get a soft cushy foam that gives you no arch support. Since I am often out hiking, running, etc., I love to be able to take off my shoes and slip into a pair of comfy sandals. For me, Birkenstock’s seem to do the trick because they offer the foot support I am looking for and they are just plain comfortable. One of the ways in which Birkenstock’s keep your feet comfortable is that the sandal cork actually molds to your foot, giving each person a personalized fit.
As we learn more and more about what we can do for our planet, Birkenstock reminds us that we can resole the EVA soles once they are done, giving you added life for your sandals. If you treat your Birkenstock’s right, they can last you up to 10 years. So yes, the price tag on the Habana Oiled Leather Como is a little expensive coming in at $120, but keep in mind these sandals will be in your footwear collection for many years to come.
