We’ve been a fan of Birkenstock sandals here at SPY for ages now. From their classic two-strap “Jesus”-looking sandal design to their more oddball one-offs like the $780 Hancock Rotterhick Rick Owens space boot, we’ve always appreciated the brand for their ability to consistently make comfortable, casual and fashionable footwear.
Because the brand initially gained popularity due to their now-legendary sandal style, they’re traditionally a summer go-to footwear option for keeping cool and staying comfy, even though they do have some stellar winter options. Additionally, Birks are known specifically for having the most comfortable footbed a pair of sandals has to offer, hence the higher price point compared to your average pair of sandals. This can leave some people seeking out Birkenstock alternatives, which exist all over the internet at online retailers like Amazon, Target and ASOS.
While the style is generally easy to copy, the comfort, on the other hand, is not so easily imitated. Birkenstock is absolutely aware of this sandal war going on, but they consistently win out over the competition. Though, for the summer of 2020, they have quite the bargain for customers looking to get that classic Birkenstock style and comfort for budget prices.
Birkenstock’s EVA Sandal is one of our favorite shoes of the summer. It’s a bright-colored two-strap sandal made for standing out from the crowd. Hyped up as the sandal of the season, Birkenstock has done it again by creating the ultimate summer sandals. And get this: they only cost $45.
Even better, the Birkenstock EVA Sandals are 100% waterproof. Basically, for Birkenstock loyalists, they’re the perfect sandal, which is why they’re consistently selling out at popular retailers.
EVA stands for ethylene vinyl acetate, which is a synthetic elastic material with excellent cushioning. The sandal’s upper, insole and cushioning are all made from 100% EVA, and these sandals are lightweight, waterproof and comfortable. There’s absolutely zero wait-to-dry time if they become even the slightest bit damp. Water will simply wick away.
Visually speaking, this sandal claims the exact same look as any Birkenstocks from the Arizona Essentials line — with just a few tricks up its sleeve.
While this bright orange color is pretty nifty, the popular orange Birkenstock sandals are already sold out in many men’s sizes, but you can also buy these shoes in black, white, copper, gray, green khaki and neon yellow. We’ve included links to a few different options below. Just remember, the Nickelodeon orange sandals pictured above are selling out fast!
So if you really want to snag yourself a pair, you’re going to have to be quick. Each color is selling like hot cakes with only a select few sizes per color on each site. Act fast to enjoy this sandal that you’ll never want to take off.
