Pea Green Patent Birkenstocks

I had hoped that I had my spring clothing needs covered, but my beloved yellow patent Birkenstock thong sandals gave up the ghost this weekend. In the past, I’ve been able to have my Birks recorked at Novelty Shoe Rebuilders on Yonge St., but because they cracked on the insole and not the bottom, there was no hope of resurrection. Looking for a replacement, I dropped by William’s Shoe Store – old school purveyors of sensible footwear – to see if I could at least find a black pair. They did have a yellow (not patent) option, but they also had a pea green (pictured above) pair which I could not resist. And they were less expensive than in the shops further east on Queen.

While research links for this post, I also discovered that birkenstock.ca is having a contest for a free pair of sandals. So if you’re a fan, you should totally go to the homepage and enter
