A couple of months ago I added a picture of a pair of Birkenstock on my Instagram account. I received many comments, more positives, than negatives, with some of my followers telling me just how great they were!! Well I decided to add them to my shoe collection, and ordered a pair in Purple. I have to admit, I have a love/hate relationship with these. I find them really ugly, in a cute sort of way, not to mention how very comfortable they are. They look great with shorts, jeans, and summer dresses, so I’m thinking these are keepers!!!
Last week, on one of my daily Fashion searches, I found the Boundree by Steve Madden, and just had to have the Leopard print pattern. I just received them today and I wanted to share my opinion on these.
They have the same look as the Birkenstock, the upper part is Pony Hair, the rest is rubber/plastic. They look just as cute as the Birkenstock, just as comfortable, and quite chic, but my main negative, is the smell. It’s awful! The plastic smell is really strong, and right now my entire upstairs smells like PU Plastic. I’m a bit disappointed, and I’m thinking that at $89.00, I could have shopped around for another pair of Birkenstocks.
I haven’t decided if I’m keeping or returning, since I did want to take these with me on vacation. They look really cute on, but the smell right now is overwhelming! Bummer!!! I’m crossing my fingers the smell wears out!!!
Let me know if you purchased them, and your thoughts on these!!
Have a wonderful week!
