    Birkenstock Sandles - Black or Brown?

    Hi - Im purchasing some birkenstock sandles for my hols. I was planning on purchasing the Brown vesrions of the ramses however I've just also seen that they do a black version. Obviously I want to look as cool as possible in my sandles so was hoping that you guys could make the final decision for me.... So what is it to be Black or Brown... You decide.........

    Anyone own a pair of these already. A few sites recommend that you should go down a shoe size as they tend to be on the large size. Must have something to do with Germans having big feet. I usually take a size 10 but I'm thinking of maybe dropping to a 9. Dont think they do half sizes.

    Thanks Tinks. I'm actually dropping the socks and sporting some healthy Toe Beards instead.

    Just reading this thread. My husband wears a pair of birkenstocks as does a married chap at work. I've seen men wearing them out with women and kids - never thought of them as remotely gay. Is it a N/S divide thing (not sure where anyone is) or age?
    Personally I like Birkenstocks on men and women and they are very comfy!

    Should grown men wear sandals.... ?

    Im from the North West. I'd suggest it was more of a class divide than a cultural divide. Thanks for giving me the assurance that its ok to wear Birkenstocks if your a straight guy.

    Thanks mate. I quite like these too and may purchase. I like the fact that they're not endorsed by a major sporting label.

    no worries,I assuming you are from Sheffield,they can easily be picked up from several stores in Meadowhall (Schuh/House of Fraser)

    best to try on as the sizes are sometimes a bit odd

    if you are from Sheffield wearing Birkenstocks in public would not be wise.....

    Birkenstocks are not 'gay'. I've never seen a gay man wearing them (to my knowledge).

    Not to perpetuate a stereotype, but gay men do tend to have more style and therefore Birkenstocks would be rare.

    Boothy has actually linked to some nice footwear:w00t:

    I'd have thought gay men wearing sandals would have been rare too? Perhaps elder, gay, german men?

    Who knows... wear flip flops if you must wear anything...
