It is vital to introduce a pair of go-to sandals to your wardrobe as the summer months draw nearer.
And with sales of “ugly” Birkenstock style sandals surging right now, iconic British fashion retailer M&S has launched its very own, super affordable take on the famously comfy footwear brand’s creations.
The high street store’s Leather Footbed Sandals come in three gorgeously neutral colours and are the perfect summer shoe for rocking around the house on hot lockdown days, slipping on for a stroll at the park or teaming with a gorgeous summer dress for a socially distanced barbecue with friends.
Plus, the price tag is miles less fund draining than higher end, designer alternatives, with a pair of the M&S lookalikes costing just £18 right now. At that price, we wouldn’t blame you for being tempted by the pink pair, the tan pair and the navy pair.
M&S say they’re ‘versatile and stylish’ and offer serious comfort thanks to their flatform design, double buckle and Insolia Flex sole that supports your feet all day long.
Unsurprisingly, they’ve already received hundreds of rave reviews from very satisfied purchasers.
‘A really comfortable sandal which is just like a Birkenstock but at a fraction of the price. They are ideal for summer but also they don’t look out of place later in the year since they can be worn with socks or pop socks,’ one wrote.
‘I ordered the pink and they are just as pictured, a nice very light creamy pink. I will be wearing this all summer with shorts, linen trousers, jeans, denim and midi skirts/dresses. Go with lots of different styles. Ideal for holidays too, slipping on for around the pool, walking around and non slip too. Excellent,’ another added, highlighting the popular sandal’s multitalented nature.
‘Got these to wear around house and garden during lockdown and they certinaly fit the bill , good fit and so comfy true to size very good value for money,’ chipped in a third, who has been putting them to great use throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
