I buy a lot of shoes. They often sit in the box for days before I open them up, try them on, and decide if I like them. It took me seconds to tear into the box of these Birks, and I am wearing them as I type this review. I already have a camo pair of traditional Birks but these elevate my game. They are beautiful shoes, very hip and perfect to wear with jeans or chinos. The design is clean, simple yet sophisticated. I bought the black but love all of the colors. Don't wait-Buys these Birks.
