5 Stylish Alternatives to Birkenstocks Even Carrie Bradshaw Could Love

"Birkenstocks are back!" My good friend posted that on Facebook the other day, and I confess: I cringed. Oh yes, they are ... they are indeed. And I will admit, there are some cute styles out right now that catch even my eye. And I know, I know: ALL the cool kids are wearing them. But I just don't think I can do it. I love a comfy shoe as much as the next girl, but I require footwear with a little more sex appeal (and a little less crunch).

As cute as those are, and as comfy as those look (I'm tracking down the pink Aerosole as I type) not a single one has the arch support of a Birk. I am a sandal junkie and have more more sandals and flip flops than anyone needs...but I could only keep one pair, it would be my "crunchy" Birks.
