    What's the call on birkenstocks? Still worth hanging on to? I have two pair. One looks like the two strap kind that everyone seems to have, but with a strap on the back. The other is a clog. Thoughts? Is my sentiment getting the best of me?

    I have the same two pairs (dark brown three-strap sandals and light brown clogs). I say keep em. I'm assuming, of course, yours are in good shape -- or easily repairable. I also have to suggest a pair of actual shoes by Birkenstock. I say "actual" because they're closed in and lace up. The strap over the tongue has two pieces of leather running perpindicular to the length of the foot woven with the shoe. The two pieces have just a little bit of space between them to let small slits appear. The color has a very orange tint (luckily I have a belt that matches EXACTLY). Yeah, this probably sounds very strange. If someone can tell me how to upload a picture into a post, I could do that...
