Now that the temperatures are rising, we're all patiently counting down the days until we can slip into our favourite summer footwear: Birkenstocks.

Beloved by stars like Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Charlize Theron, the German footwear manufacturer is known for their signature cork contoured footbed and orthopedic insole. While a pair of the Birks are sure to leave your feet feeling happy, they’re not as kind to your wallet.

A pair of Birkenstocks are likely to set you back upwards of $100 depending on model — and sometimes more for special edition releases. Luckily, there’s an affordable alternative to sport this summer that delivers the same Birkenstock comfort you know and love for a fraction of the price.

”I love these Birkenstock sandals, very stylish and most of all comfortable,” one Nordstrom shopper said. “The quality of this shoe is amazing. And most of all the shipping was very fast. I would definitely buy me another pair to add to my shoe collection.”

“Love these shoes! I have flat and very narrow feet and cannot wear flip flops because they don’t have arch support,” another wrote. “These are super comfy and have the arch support I need. They do run big, I have another pair of Birks in a size 39 (8-8.5) and the 38 (7-7.5) fits me in this style. I'm ordering another pair in black!”
