Last week I went to the "GDS - Gobal Destination for Shoes & Accessories" fair in Düsseldorf in order to check out the shoe and accessory trends for 2015. While I also discovered the one or the other new label I was mostly drawn towards renowned and popular brands. And talking about popular shoe brands how could we go past Birkenstock? In fact it wasn't hard to see that the Birkenstock booth was one of the most visited ones and the PR people were busy instructing press and clients about the latest Birkenstock models for the next seasons.
So what will we be seeing on fashionistas' feet in 2015? Not only Birkenstock but about any other brand had comfy sandals in their range, a clear sign that the trend isn't over but has only just begun! Now you're probably wondering what news Birkenstock could still come up with as they already have so many models (from the one strap Madrid to the toe separator Gizeh). Well let me tell you: it's getting colourful! You won't only be able to find your favourite pair of Birkenstocks in about any colour, but you won't have to miss out on metallic, neon or fancy applications either. There will even be hand-painted pairs, making every single shoe unique. My favourite pair: the pastel brown metallic laser cut Gizehs in the 6th photo from here! Besides from new designs Birkenstock will also offer whole new shoe concepts, among them sneakers and beach slides. The beach slides come in all black or all white and will be available as the Madrid or Gizeh shoe. Perfect for all those who want to be stylish on the beach without ruining their original cork Birkenstocks.
Besides from the display models the visitors of the GDS also had the possibility to see the shoes in action at the Birkenstock fashion show. As you can see Birkenstocks go with skirts and pants alike and like to be combined with bright colours:
What do you guys think about Birkenstock? Have you only just discovered the trend for yourselves or have you already had enough of the comfy slides? How does your ideal pair of Birks for 2015 look like?
