Like with all footwear, there are a lot of ways to wear birkenstocks with socks. I will share with you essential tips for wearing Birks with socks and without.
Depending on your socks, you might still want to wear a pair with the sandals on days where it’s really cold and you’re going to be outside for an extended period of time — not to mention days where your feet are going to get wet, or where there are patches of ice around. A lot of people also think that they should wear their sandals with socks when they’re going to be on the subway or on a long bus ride — especially if it’s a crowded vehicle.
And, as always, there are no rules and no laws when it comes to wearing these or any other type of footwear without socks. And if you want to wear a pair of socks that look like slippers and don’t mind getting them dirty, it’s completely fine. Just be sure they fit comfortably into the shoes. And if you just want to go with the flow and wear regular socks rather than any kind of sandal-specific ones, no one’s going to stop you. If you want to add a bit of flair to your style, try wearing them with patterned socks.
The main thing is to enjoy your footwear however you prefer. If you like wearing socks with your birkenstocks, then great! And if wearing sandals without socks feels the best and more comfortable for you, then that’s fine too! It’s all about what feels right. After all, your feet carry you all over the place — they deserve something comfortable.
