What else would you called Birks though? They're not 'regular' flip flops, they're a particular design with foot support. So calling them Birks is surely the quickest way to let someone know what you're after?!

Obviously if you are going into a shop to enquire if they sell them then you have to use the trade name. I just know people who announce that instead of just putting their shoes on they are putting their birkenstocks on. It drives me potty.

people who call their sunnies by the trade name drive me nuts too. FFS so you have a pair of raybans/oakleys etc. Who gives a shit!

See, I did warn everyone. I am strange and friendless because of these weird things.

LOL!

I think the only brand name I'd use in that context would be Birks..simply because it's shorter to say than flip-flops. I'd never say I'd going to put on my Levi's or whatever.

Do I get away with that?!

I agree, the cork soles mould to the shape of your feet and you never want to wear painful "work shoes" again, the lesbian mention is news to me, there must be 500 lesbian mums at our school then.......... I will have to let them all know . On a different note how nice is it to see blue skies in Brisvegas today, will have to get my birks on when I get home

I haven't had my BIRKS off since I got them, I'd say that'll change next year when I properly acclimatise! It's a shame they don't make BIRKS that you can wear to the gym! On a serious note, I don't call mine my birks I just call them my shoes...

I came across this stuff online the other day, I'm gonna invest in some as parts of the sides of mine have kinda gone a bit soft....
