I have a rather embarrassing confession to make: I spent upwards of two hours on Sunday night scouring the web for a pair of black leather Birkenstocks in my size. To my dismay, they are sold out seemingly everywhere on the planet, but that doesn't mean I'm going to give up.
As a short-term solution, I came across these black slide sandals at Zara, which have the same feel as the classic Birkenstocks, but in a chic, more streamlined shape. While I still plan on hunting high and low until I find what I am looking for -- if you see any in a size 36, you know where to find me -- these will do a great job of holding me over in the meantime.
Sandals with straps, $59.90, available at Zara.
