Birkenstock Review

Birkenstock contacted me about 5 weeks ago asking me if I would be interested in reviewing one of their shoes. I sent them a reply email telling them "I appreciate the offer, however I do not think I could give them an honest review due to the fact that I do not wear the type of shoes they make." I said they would be better off requesting a review from someone else.

Eight days after I sent that email, my wife Lauren, told me she wanted a pair of "kick around the house type of shoes" for Christmas. I laughed.

The next day I emailed the people at Birkenstock and told them about my conversation with my wife. They said they would send me a pair of women's Bostons for her to try.

They arrived in the mail a few days later. Lauren has not taken them off her feet since.

I recently asked her what she thought of the new shoes and she responded by saying that they are a very comfortable shoe and they were so easy to wear. She also said that they stand up to dog shit (she stepped in dog poop in our back yard two days after getting the shoes and she hosed off the shoes and they are perfectly fine). She said she would have no problem kicking me in the head while wearing them (she was referring to my request to try and kick me because I thought I was the next karate kid).

Lauren loves her new Birkenstock shoes. Since I got them before Christmas I still need to go out and buy her a gift to open for Christmas. I think she may like a year's supply of Doritos (I want one), or maybe a gift certificate to Dunkin Donuts.
