Well, this is a style i’m sure nobody predicted would be coming back, but fashion is cyclical and what goes around must come back around.

Have you ever seen a dog and say, “its so ugly, that its actually cute?” Well, this trend sorta works the same way. Birkenstock’s popularity exploded during the 1970s and seem to be making its way back this summer into many’s sandal collections.

But, thankfully for those of you who can’t bear to put the classic Arizona Suede Sandal back on your foot, many fashionable footwear companies are making more trendy and updated versions of this hippie dippie sandal.

Check out these blast from the past sandals below with a more modern sense of style:
