Last year I bought a pair of these braided teva sandals. They look amazing, but they stretch out and the bottom gets all shiny and then it is hard for your foot to hold on because the straps are so thin that they don't stay on your foot. Then I lost a strap! So they're really pretty, but just not that perfect pair of sandals.
I am looking for something that is good for walks, going to the grocery store, park, but is explicitly NOT sporty. Looks good with jeans or a skirt. Not even "sort of sporty" like a Merrell or a Sanuk. I already have a pair of sporty tevas that I wear for sporty purposes, etc.
I am leaning towards birkenstocks but they are so everywhere, I am wondering what else is out there.
I saw the birkenstock thread and some people suggested alternatives.
