Birkenstocks are taking the fashion world by storm. Founded nearly 250 years ago in Germany, the 1774-era company is still being paired with vintage denim and white cotton crop tops today.
It wasn’t until 1964 that Birkenstocks started to resemble the chunky two-strap Arizona sandals you are familiar with now. Though the brand maintains its mission — to craft an orthopedic sandal that offers support and comfort — they have become more stylish than ever, strongly holding onto their position as celebrity and it-girl must-haves.
According to the below celebrity fashion icons, Birkenstocks can quite literally be worn with anything, from jeans and shorts to blazers and dresses. Some even style the open-toe retro kicks with tube socks to really drive home that '90s Dad appeal.
No matter their hippie roots, they’ve certainly got that je ne sais pas that has made them a wardrobe staple for chic girls across the globe, centuries after the brand was created.
Ahead, see how your favorite celebs style their Birkenstocks and shop the most popular styles, too.
