Not everyone has embraced the Birkenstock Renaissance with open arms. Sure, the divisive slides are a little less refined than a Chanel ballet flat or Castañer espadrille, but there’s no denying their presence in many a cool person’s wardrobe.

So, why is this basic sandal so beloved? Originally released in 1973, Birkenstock’s two-strap Arizona style boasts one thing above all else: comfort. Until you’ve tried it, you truly can’t comprehend the satisfaction of sliding your foot onto that cork bed and feeling it mould to its shape.

But there has to be an aesthetic reason, too—let’s face it, if comfort was our only criteria we’d wear slippers to work (although arguably Birkenstocks are comfier)—and I think I’ve cracked it. It seems that adding these casual slides to an outfit instantly makes it feel effortless. Wearing a dress that feels too formal for a laid-back lunch date? Slip on some Birks. Spent hours curating an outfit but want it to read as relaxed? Only one sandal will do.

Below, you’ll find six simple looks that prove just how true this is. If you’ve been sitting on the fence where Birkenstocks are concerned, we’re pretty sure these outfits will convert you.
