People...if you have never owned a pair of Birkenstock’s Arizona sandals, you don’t know how happy feet can be. My Birkenstocks were always waiting at my front door to replace the high heels I wore at work. Now, I wear them at least 50% of my waking hours.
I don’t know how many pairs I’ve owned over the years, but I always have a new pair on my closet shelf, just in case.
Birkenstocks have been produced for 248 years. They must be doing something right.
It is said that Steve Jobs wore Birkenstock’s Arizona sandals while developing the Apple computer in his family’s garage fifty years ago. Those sandals recently sold to an undisclosed buyer for $218,750.00.
Because Peter taught computer science, we owned a very early Apple computer. Unfortunately, I didn’t save the Birkenstocks I wore while using it.
