Could an adult wear these?

I need to replace my old imitation Birkenstock sandals and these have caught my eye! I'm 34, could I wear these without folk judging? Are they obviously kids shoes?
I'd be wearing them with jeans and t-shirt

I like them. I think if I wore the right type of clothes jeans and t shirts they would look fab. Would look silly with my patterned dresses and skirts.

I'd wear them but I'm 35 and have Vans with hello kitty on them so maybe I'm not the best judge grin.

My current shoes for wearing with jeans have glitter and crystals all over them (and are kids trainers) so not sure why I'm swithering over these.

They are fine.

The brown is not my cup of tea but that's a common thing for Birkenstock.

If the had a black sole and they fit me I'd be getting them grin

I'd wear them and I won't see 50 again ...sorry if I have put you off!

Ooh except for the toe-post; I have very "soft" feet and that would give me a blister in no time.

If you are one of those lucky women who can fit into children's sizes then go for it and there is no need to explain yourself.

I just asked my three year old if they were grown up shoes and she said no they're children's shoes... but I'd wear them and I'm in my 40s, so I say go for it.

Lovely shoes, not too kiddy/babyish. Just don't wear with any patterns. Would look great with short denim shorts and white top.

I am 37 and I would absolutely wear them.
