    ...are my calling in life.

    My feet are so narrow that the straps are a little large but the leather feels amazing. The soft bed of the sandals is crazy comfortable as well.

    I'm resurrected, a born again hippie - I'll probably never want to take these things off.

    If I paid the actual price of $130 for these things, I might have hurt myself but since I got them for dirt cheap I couldn't pass them up.

    birks definately ftw

    hahaha.

    I work, but lately I've been playing hard.

    Didn't get to sleep till 9a.m. and its been typical to be up to 4a.m. lately. Haven't been to the gym since last Saturday. Craziness.

    Yeah, I always wanted a pair.

    For $32 I couldn't turn them down. Thats like 20% of the original price.

    They're the real deal, I just had a hook up. I have the birk box next to me.


    They're Suede Mocha Soft Footbed Arizona

    I wear 10's or 10 1/2's in everything else but a 9 in birks fits.

    The store I bought them from had them listed at $120. This site has them listed at $120 too.

    I'm not sure if this is the style I like the best, they didn't have that many styles.


    ...and nah, the hookup was on the downlow and I'm the only person to have ever pulled something like that off. My other shoes were originally $90 and I paid $55 for them which is typical for our close friends, but nothing like the $120 to $32 price drop. It was actually $31.50, lol he gave me the $.50 back.

    sounds like someone was switching tags y0
    lol

    you should prob invest in the birkenstock care pack, its got the leather cleaner, cork cleaner, cork protector, etc etc etc
    i bought it to get the free shipping over $100 and have never used it, prob should have cause my sandals look like hell
    they've been through motor swaps, junk yards, paint jobs, etc etc etc

    Maybe I'll look into that.

    and more had to be done than a tag switch, I don't think there was any sandal in the store that cheap. Its good to have a old register terminal.

    i will use the greatest hippie quote of all time..

    "Hippies. Hippes all around me... They say they want to save the world but all they do is smoke pot and smell bad." -- Eric Cartman

    Birkenstocks are a way of life up here.. ugh. I cant stand those things, honestly i dont find them comfortable, but maybe id need to buy ones that form to my feet instead of someone elses.
