Look, I get it. I know Birkenstock sandals have a bit of a…reputation. The cork footbed, the chunky sole – the earthy slip-ons have long been a symbol of crunchy outdoors style, but in the last few years? Well, things have really changed.

Birkenstock has shed its utilitarian image and stepped into the mainstream style spotlight.

I’m talking about a sandal revolution, one that embraces both function and fashion. The footbeds even support your arches—not a feat most modern shoes can lay claim to, let alone sandals!

So, get ready to elevate your warm weather footwear game. I put together a week’s worth of outfits spotlighting the Birkenstock sandal, proving that comfort can be undeniably stylish.

Below, get inspired with 5 men’s Birkenstock sandals outfits:

SG Says: This is “I’m a minimalist” in outfit form.

You’re aware you don’t need extraneous layers to execute a memorable look because you’re mindful of every little detail.

Think: the intentional fading in the perfectly-fitting pocket tee. The white jean’s just-so stiffness that makes them structured but not stuffy. And yes, the decision to go with a more unexpected footwear choice than your standard sneakers or summer boat shoes.

SG Says: We know that not all heroes wear capes, but they do probably all own a pair of classic grey sweatpants.

Paired with a great personali-tee (you get it?!) and an armful of breakfast accoutrements, you’ve got a winning look.

SG Says: What do these cargo pants hold, you ask? Perhaps the wine key to unlock the picnic of your dreams, with no fear of grass stains.

A classic stripe tee and crewneck sweatshirt keep you stylish as the shade moves in and out of your spot. Slide-on sandals encourage you to take the perfect opportunity to experience earthing.

SG Says: There’s dew on the ground but you have to walk your dog? No worries, you can still slide right out of the house in your “elevated lounge look.”

Tie-dye socks add a layer of protection (and personality!). You don’t even have to fumble with shoelaces.

SG Says: Don’t be afraid to experiment when it comes to your Birkenstock sandals! It’s 2024, the only rule left is to try to look and feel your best. For something like an outdoor wedding, a suit with Birkenstocks is the perfect vibe.

This look is giving me Roman Roy vibes (or maybe I’m just hungry for more Succession?), but either way that’s a good thing.
