Shoe In? Maybe
Now that the temperatures are starting to dip a bit, perhaps the tootsies are starting to chill? Must be so, because Birkenstock’s gray wool clogs are becoming hard to come by. Seems trendsetters can’t get enough of them this season. Though Birkenstock stores are more often found in Northern California college towns, the Southland is home to two--one in Santa Monica and one in Costa Mesa, and store managers say a new shipment of selected sizes is expected mid-month. But, hey, the company offers nearly 300 style and color combinations, so if you can’t wait that long, try the suede clog, instead. Available in black, taupe, navy and mocha, they may be better suited to our warm climate.
Birkenstock “Boston” clog, $79.95 in wool; $103.95 in suede, at Birkenstock, 1323 Third Street Promenade, Santa Monica, (310) 393-5655; and 901D South Coast Drive #180, Costa Mesa, (714) 557-6639.
