I found these yellow and pink floral Birkenstock type slides or mules quite by accident on a food-shopping trip to the local Walmart.
The bright calico print is what grabbed my attention at a time when yellow was really all the rage. The $9.99 price wasn’t all that bad either when Birkenstock shoes that these resemble can cost a pretty penny…
They’re by Faded Glory, a Walmart Brand, which offers some pretty well-made, classic items as well as keeping up with the latest trends, such as the blue and white denim jeggings I just wrote about.
Just like Birkenstocks, these mules feature an anatomically friendly molded and felted foot bed and a roomy, rounded toe with plenty of wiggle space.
There are even adjustable straps with nice brass buckles on the side to make them fit just perfectly! The one inch deep wedges have a stylish cork finish and rubber tread.
The only “downside” is that the uppers are fabric and not coated like “oilcloth” which are wipeable. So if you spill something on them, you have to clean then up with soap and make sure you dry them properly.
As for their sizing, the size 8 fits my 8.5 regular feet just perfectly, so they do run a little big.
