More of the New-ness

Remember my new Super-Birkis? Since I've had them for outdoor wear, I've noticed a lessening in the stiffness and discomfort of my lower back and my knees. Coincidence? I think not.

So, I searched around until I found the ultimate source for Birkis: an E-Bay seller in Germany, where Birkenstocks are made. I looked, I hummed, I hawed, and I ordered. And, of course, I chose the lime green. Then, just over a week later, my new Fun-Birkis arrived.

So, without further ado, I give you a peak at my new INDOOR Birkis. Note the really cool grip pattern on the bottom of the shoe (great for "aerating" the carpet), the great shaping for my high arches and insteps, the decent width for my ginormous feetsies, with room for hand knit socks. Since I've been wearing these indoors, my lower back issue has virtually vanished.

Plus, they are clogs, so slip on and off really easily, and are extremely lightweight. When I recline in my comfy chair (my naturally occurring position) I kick off the Birkis and admire my hand knit socks. When I'm upright and moving about (hey, it happens now and then - and usually involves the kitchen) I'm properly shod and supported, and minimize wear on the socks. Great all around.

For the sharp-of-eye, yes, those are new socks. Details in the usual place.

I love those! I have another pair of "Fun Birkis" from Zappos, but they don't have a back. I think I'll have to look for yours!
