Birkenstocks are like that really good friend that always has your back. They're reliable; they can comfort you when nothing else can; and they're with you for the long haul. The classic comfort shoe doesn't necessarily come cheap — a good friend, however, is priceless — but thanks to a just-announced super secret sale, Birkenstocks are priced less than we've seen in quite a while.
Enter, Gilt's huge Birkenstock sale that ends in exactly 72 hours.

If you don't own Birkenstocks yet, now's the perfect time to add a pair to your rotation because, sale. The shoe has been around for years, and in its time, it's built up quite the celeb following — one that includes that likes of Reese Witherspoon, Kendall Jenner, and Katie Holmes — so you can feel really confident about your purchase. After all, a shoe doesn't hold this much staying power (or a huge celeb fanbase) if it's nothing short of amazing.
Birkenstocks are obviously comfy. They have a contoured footbed that forms to the shape of your feet for a customized fit. The signature two-strap upper, which is adjustable, ensures the slides stay put (and don't, well, slide off). They can be worn with socks when the temperatures drop, but they're also a staple WFH shoe, which is why demand for them seems to remain at an all-time high, according to the fashion insights company Lyst.
