From top models to ‘Barbie,’ Birkenstocks are hot in Hollywood: Shop celeb favorites

Stars are always stocking up on Birkenstocks.

After the instantly recognizable sandals made a cameo in the “Barbie” movie, searches for the shoes spiked 110%, per Lyst, while Bloomberg reported that the company could be going public soon with an $8 billion valuation.

But while the once-polarizing style has certainly had a moment in the past year, the “Barbie” buzz isn’t the first time it’s been linked to A-listers.

Long before Margot Robbie slipped on a pink pair in the summer blockbuster, stars like Sienna Miller, Kendall Jenner and Heidi Klum sported the buckled styles on repeat.

What do Margot Robbie and Reese Witherspoon have in common (other than famously playing pink-clad characters, that is)? Both have stepped out in the iconic Birkenstock Arizona. Practically synonymous with Birkenstock itself, the bestselling style is also a longtime favorite of A-listers like Kendall Jenner, Kate Hudson, Gigi Hadid and Heidi Klum.

Chrissy Teigen and Katy Perry favor the Big Buckle version, which Robbie wore in a shade of (what else?) pale pink for the final scene of “Barbie.”

“I love my Big Buckle Arizonas because they feel a bit dressier than your typical Birks,” says Page Six Style Editor Elana Fishman. “I style them with everything from denim to dresses, and they always earn me compliments.”

And for those who don’t want to ditch their sandals come fall, the Arizona is also available in shearling-lined versions, as seen on both Witherspoon and Meghan Markle.

Birkenstock’s Boston Clog also frequently sets foot in Hollywood, with everyone from Emma Watson to Riley Keough sporting the timeless suede design.

Kendall Jenner just might be the style’s biggest fan, however, as she’s worn the clogs everywhere from Italy to the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” confessional booth.

Which Birkenstock style is most comfortable?

Birkenstocks are practically synonymous with comfort, and many fans rave about the Arizona, Gizeh and Boston styles in particular. All feature the brand’s signature contoured footbed made of cork and latex, which helps it mold to the foot’s natural shape.

Although everyone’s footwear needs are different, each of these styles has earned rave reviews on websites like Zappos, with customers praising their comfort.

“I’ve owned over four pairs of Birkenstocks and swear they’re the most supportive sandals I’ve ever tried. Plus, they last so long that I never regret investing in a new pair,” says Page Six Commerce Writer Hannah Southwick.

Do any Birkenstocks have arch support?

Those who need extra arch support might consider the Gizeh, which boast a toe bar to promote proper alignment in addition to the aforementioned contoured footbed. The Arizona is another good pick for those with high arches.

When shopping for Birkenstocks, we always suggest reading the reviews. Most retailers make it simple to filter comments by topic. Some, like DSW, even have a rating scale, which allows users to see how other shoppers rate the fit and feel of a shoe style.
