Hail to Birkenstocks!

Today I was told by a Superior Court marshal that my Birkenstocks should not be worn in the courtroom and to please exchange them for something appropriate. Like what? Gladiator sandles? Excuse me? *raises eyebrow* I'll wear whatever I want unless a sign is clearly posted in a public area prohibiting me from wearing certain foot attire.

Needless to say, I demanded that he pull out his SOP and show me exactly where it's written that I couldn't wear my Birks in court. Of course, he couldn't. I told Mr.he-who-thinks-he-can-intimidate-me, that until I hear it from a judge, I will continue wearing my Birks in court. Pompous men in uniform are such a turn off, aren't they?

Now, perhaps Birkenstocks may not be politically correct to wear in court, nor are they very attractive, but I enjoy feet comfort, and my feet always thank me after a long day of walking.

Is there a Birkenstock club somewhere out there? I'd love to be a member. I am the proud owner of nine pairs of Birks in various styles and colors, and all very, very comfortable. Birkenstocks have been around since 1774, when Johann Birkenstock worked as a shoemaker in a small German village. Bless his heart! Click here for Birkenstock story.

I did wear a pair to a friend's wedding once, the amused glances I received made me realize that I was the only Renaissance Woman at the entire reception.

My godmom is not amused, though, but then again, hardly anything amuses her. She always has an extra pair of shoes for me in her car, however, she has yet to win the 'war of the wills' with me on this issue. (I believe my godmom owns a pair or two, but will not willingly admit to this).

By the way, I am not a liberal, nor a hippy, preferring to align myself with the Libertarian movement. Since when were Birks stereotyped this way? Ah.. perhaps during the sixties, the peace movement, Woodstock, perhaps? Yes, I'll have to do a bit more research on this.

Take my chocolate; take my burrito Del Taco; but do not take away my Birks. And may I say, if you don't own a pair, you have very unhappy feet.
