Now that summer is almost here, many people are looking to swap their sneakers for a pair of sandals that can fit your busy lifestyle while keeping your feet comfortable and pain free.

One of the season’s most popular sandal styles is a faithful pair of Birkenstocks. The German shoe maker is known for its contoured cork footbed and orthopedic sockliner. While a pair of Birks can make your feet happy, they aren’t quite as nice to your wallet.
While some Birkenstocks can cost up to $ 100, there is a more affordable alternative that has been worn by celebrities like Hailey Bieber, Demi Lovato, and Charlize Theron.
Most recently, actress Naomi Watts was spotted walking her dog, Izzy, in New York City wearing a pair of Arizona EVA sandals from Birkenstock (CA $ 60 / US $ 45).
The 52-year-old looked casual in a pair of blue leggings, a white tank top and an oversized button with her blonde locks thrown into a ponytail. Watts accessorized the look with a pair of oversized cat-eye sunglasses from Vera Wang.

The lightweight, 100% waterproof ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) sandals offer plenty of flexibility and cushioning that Birks fans appreciate.

“These remind me of my Crocs growing up, except they’re cute!” A buyer wrote. “They’re very trendy. They go with loungewear, beachwear, sportswear and dresses. I usually do an 8.5 but I’m a size 7 and they fit perfectly.”
“I bought them because I’m very pregnant with feet that sweat easily. I wanted a sandal that was easy and cute to wear. I love it,” another wrote. “I put them on and go and they have a sole soft enough to keep my tender feet happy. Plus, I often get compliments about them.”
Some buyers have complained that there may be a bit of irritation on the toes, but they can be easily hacked with a bandage to remedy the problem.
“I have plantar fasciitis and if you’ve ever had this you know it’s very painful. I always have to wear shoes, and these are now my favorite shoes around the house. As soon as I get out of bed, I slip my feet into the sandals, ”said a US-based buyer.“ I wear other Birkenstock shoes outside of the house and have an insert for my sneakers. I am gradually seeing an improvement in my condition. These shoes are very comfortable and have a spongy feel. The only problem others I have cited is the front strap can irritate your toes, especially if you have additional foot problems, like the onset of hammer toes. I put a bandage under the strap to minimize any irritation, and it seems to work.
