Travellers with backpacks for wardrobes have been some of the best dressed people I’ve ever seen. What little they have has to be chosen with care – practical and loved, worn-in with just that touch of flair and imagination. And Birkenstocks make the ideal travelling shoe – invincible, hardwearing – slide them on and off – or leave them on – for dodgy showers and floors. So I can understand their growing popularity: over the years they’ve earnt their fashion stripes the hard way (although Birks with fur aka Celine will never have my heart) But sadly the molded Birk sole never fitted my feet rendering them painful, heavy, clunky and useless – it’s not a look I’ll be signing up to any time soon. But these shoes by Tods? Ignore the price-tag and I’d be there like a shot..
