Subject: saying goodbye to old Birkenstocks

This is half-serious, believe it or not. I'd like to know what any of you phoakies do with your old Birks. Yeah, you know, all phoakies have to wear Birks, right?**BG**

Anyway, I have about 5 pair purchased over the last 20 years and I am having a hard time deciding whether to get some of the older ones rebuilt with new footbeds, cork soles, etc. I am having a harder time deciding on whether to throw any of them away or not.

Have any of you done so? Or, do you just keep re-soling them and wearing them forever?

I did give up and order a new pair, today, so at least I don't have to decide on the rebuilds until later.

Thanks!

kat

Ok, first, to turn it into a musical thread, Wonderful shoes
I've had my arizonas resoled once, through a place I found via the "Footprints" catalog. They did a good job, but the cork beds are falling apart. If I get those replaced, I've essentially replaced most of the shoe.

I suppose when I run out of storage space, or stop wearing an old pair, That's the time to retire them to compost or something. Can you compost in Casper?

I've never thrown any of mine away. When they're really old and ratty looking and not presentable to wear to town, they're just perfect for old, soft, bedroom slippers. Another pair of "oldies but goodies" I use to wear when it's raining or I'm working in the yard.

I'd have a hell of a time trying to decide: should I? or shouldn't I?

Sorry, kat, I guess I'm not much help.

Oh kat you touch on a timely subject because I was starting to question the life expentancy of my Birks.
I once mailed them away 6 years ago to the Birks doctor in Nelson BC who recorked them.
But I am not sure, I think they need to be 'put down'
Is there a Birkenstock cemetery I am not aware of?
Maybe I should buy a plot.
I am so attached to my Birks that when I come home, I have to find them first or I can't do anything else. Kind of like people who can't do a thing without their eye glasses on.
I have a friend who is so attached to his Birks he now has duct tape holding the few stands of leather left on them together.

Bonnie ... I've seen more birks duct-taped together than any other shoe on earth. Shoe Goo works around the edges between the footbed and the cork. And little rubberized plastic heel "taps" work great.

I don't know moonjen, I figure if it got to the point I had to ductape or Shoe Goo my Birks it kind of reminds me of putting people on life support systems when you should really let them pass on.
But I do appreciate the suggestions, just seems like a horrible way to end one's shoe life.

So what did you do Catspaw, bronze your jockstrap?
Or did it solidify on its own.
I use to wear an Esso mechanics suit when I was 12 years old with the monogram Bill. Guess he was a fine mechanic. I loved that suit. I would not part with it. It didn't smell too good but I loved that suit. I feel the same way about my shoes.
Well kat if you want to start a Birks cemetery lets talk, it could be a worth while investment.

A great quote from the novel Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry--one character speaking about another says:

"He never was one to get rid of a garment just because it had some age on it."

Kat, Carol wore hers forever. She used to paint the cork with a product called "BARGE CEMENT" that Birkenstock suggested to her when the cork started to decompose. Worked real well. When they finally gave up the ghost, she did, at long last throw them away. When she did remove her feet from them we found at least 50 grubs living in the toe and heel depressions. The ones we got her after that left a lot to be desired. But just a couple o' months ago, I saw an ad in the Chicago Reader weekly newspaper for a shop on Armitage Ave. in Chi that sold ONLY Birkenstocks. Secretly, I traced the souls of her unsatisfactory sandals, got those to our son in that town, specified the style, and he got 'em for her. (I paid.)

I'm happy to say that she is extremely happy with her new ones.

And, no, Birkenstock is not the name of a town in New York where there was a music festival a long time ago.

And to my nephew Hugh G. Rection, I bequeath my Birkenstocks in the hope that he can get the smell out of them after removing the maggots from the cork and coating it with Barge cement. Also my favorite hat, recently blocked by an Albanian Flea Circus proprietor.

Yeah....thanks.........uh, right then.........

Art ... I've used that quote from Lonesome Dove, often!

bonnie, kat, et. al., be careful, we'll be accused of starting a birkieclique.

I bought my first pair in 1975, from a little hole-in-the-wall store in the Georgetown section of Washington, D.C., which was owned by a group of Sikhs. There were two styles, brown or black, leather or suede. My father said I had just rounded-out my collection of "the ugliest shows in the world." (Added them to my collection of Earth Shoes, Clark Wallabys, Famolares.)

When you encountered someone else, on the streets, wearing birkies, there was a sly wink and a secret handshake. "We" knew .....

You learned to be tuff, whenever anyone asked the question "Where the hell did you get those ugly things."

I wear mine all year 'round. Even in Alaska, I wore them all year 'round and just added wool socks in the winter. Fairbanks has very dry, powdery snow, so there was no need to worry about slogging about in "snirt" = snowdirt.

The only problem comes when, for some reason, you have to put your foot into a regular shoe, like a pump. It takes a shoe horn and lots of PAM.

Are we fanatibirks? You betcha! But we also tend to have better moods 'cause our feet don't hurt.

Apparently one can still buy Earth shoes at such places as WalMart and Macy's! I liked the ones I had, when I had them. Probably would not get along well with them now.*BG*

Anyway, for a fun look at shoe nostalgia, I found this at this site:

"I had a pair. Size 9. William S. Burroughs wore them, too.

Contrary to popular belief, earth shoes were not invented in the 1970's, but designed in 1957 by a Danish yoga instructor named Anne Kals. They were first sold in the United States in 1970 under licence by Raymond and Eleanor Jacobs of New York City. The Jacobs changed the name from Anne Kals Minus Heel Shoes to Earth Shoes in honor of the first Earth Day. Besieged by banking distputes, the Jacobs once multimillion-dollar company went bankrupt in 1977.

The unique characteristic of Earth Shoes was their negative heel, which meant that the heel was lower than the toe. This design was said to imitate the feeling of walking in sand and improve posture. I remember the first time I ever wore them; the fronts were tapered and I felt like I was falling forward with every step."

When you guys were younger, in your teens, did you use to walk barefoot until you build up so much callus that you could probably walk on hot coals?
I remember it was 'cool' to be barefoot.
Catspaw I think Jesus use to walk barefoot.
Doesn't really benefit the shoe industry though.
Can you imagine duct taping your orthotics to the arches of your feet. That would be pretty funny.

Well I do try to avoid the BS threads even though they are often the funniest thing on the Cat ... But realizing that there are kindred spirits and Birkenstock graveyards in other closets than mine was irresistible!!!

Bill say, "When you people die, do your soles go to Heaven?"

Jen, I was so glad to hear that someone else wears them (with socks) in the winter! -- Have done that for about 6 years.

Can you have them resoled after you wear down the right heel right into the cork from wearing them while you're driving? (I have a little pad that's supposed to protect my shoe heels when I drive. It may actually help but they all come to ruin in the end.)

Bill just said he had a pair of earth shoes. Bought them in DC in Georgetown at the Earth Shoe Store in 1975 (really!)

Yes! Rita, you can! Nice to see you in here!*BG* If you go to the website I put a link in for, you will find info on having yours repaired. I cannot recommend the place in CT enough. Birks are all they do and they are superb at it.

Bonnie, we used to go barefoot, in the house, but living in the country it was important to have on shoes when we were outside, esp. if there were snakes around. Even with shoes, when I was 13 I ran up a slight hill and stepped on the nail of a rusty hinge. Ran it all the way through my foot. Screamed bloody murder, with the peacocks chiming in.

Much as I love my Birks, I am not sure I could ever go hiking in them. My dad and mom drilled it into us so much that we must have on hightop boots to go hiking, just because some scared old snake might take a strike at us.:-)

Maybe Aine could make this a new song challenge. What would you write in a song about your Birks?

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe
She had so many pairs, she didn't know what to do
She complained about blisters and all of her hurts
She hobbled around in pain, in fits and in spurts
Then one day she got smart, she threw them all in the dirt
And said "From now on, my friends, it's just me and my birks."

I think I still have a significant number of all the pairs of shoes/boots I have owned in the last 15-20 years, including a pair of Earth Shoes clones!!...and a few that I have had longer. I have a pair of really 'generic' "tennis shoes" (low sneakers) that I bought in Lawerence Kans, about 1972..(yes...they ARE ratty looking ..but once or twice a year they are just the thing for some yard job when my feet are hot and I don't have sandals...

I also own a pair of WW2 Woolen US Army Arctic boots...which require felt liners...they are HUGE with the extra space required...but warm!..(I used to work in a surplus store which had a few pair...plus the liners.) Now MOST of these shoes do NOT get worn...but the mind says.."gee...if I ever have to walk thru some tar on my street, I could wear THESE!"..

Of course there are so many lovely others. Debauched. Right, what's a BAUCH and why is it valuable? How about the good old "cherry" lines.....lost cherry, took her cherry. I have seen plenty of female genitalia and not one of them has resembled a cherry in any way, shape, or form. "Slept with" is always entertaining although I have never known anyone who could fuck and sleep at the same time. I've heard some guys are real bad, but has anyone actually fallen asleep?

I think the big question that remains is..........
Have you done it in your Birkenstocks?

Oh Bonnie dear, there's another winner!!! "Do IT." The implication here is that the IT you refer to is the only IT there is and by being the solitary, top-gun, and eliminating all other ITS, has secured the place of honor in our vocabulary. But to do that would actually require eliminating the word IT from all other meanings. Try writing a few paragraphs that way....no IT to be found. Tough, isn't it? Why not just say "fuck?"

Has anyone fucked in their Birkenstock's?

Ahhh......much better.
