Birkenstocks were originally made in Germany, but they became so popular in the USA everyone were wearing them, they costed around 100 dollars at any shoe store that had them, now they are making knock off brands of the shoe. everyone in my hight school wore them the cheerleaders and the jocks and the smart kids, i even bought a pair for my 17th birthday, they costed me 101 dollars which isnt bad for a pair of shoes they were very comfortable to wear at anytime of the season. I still have the pair that i own but i rarely wear them anymore, but i would wear them occasionally since the weather is changing. they arent as popular as they used to be now, now its an on and off thing like any other pair of shoe.

I was surprised to see them revived in the 1990s, along with lots of other 70s fashions. They still look really early 70s to me (and they didn't cost $100 back then like they do today, either). Shoes like Birkenstocks and clogs were so out of style in the anti-70s 80s that it was really weird to see them come back, but they're so comfortable and practical that people wanted to wear them - that's true of a lot of 70s clothes, by the way, since that was an era of liberation and practicality, when constricting, uncomfortable clothes were rejected even by fashion designers.

I didn't know this was a fad; I grew up in the 70s. I don't remember them until the 90s. I had a pair of the knockoffs.
