I need a new pair and always buy the brownish khaki ones but thinking about having some silver ones this year, what are you all having? smile

I have just bought some silver ones and a broze pair of gizzah.

But I also have - pale pink, white, black, flowery and red. I love them. They last forever and wear really well.

I get a pair a year normally blush.

I do tend to live in them in the summer

Patent pink. Never had them before but cheap in TK Maxx.

Are the silver nice then? I've only looked at them on ebay-there's a shop selling them for £26 and free delivery. I do like the pink as well though.

i have got white,black, silver, red patent and pink (in my defence my friend works for them and gets discount) i don't know what i did before birkenstocks!

ThePellyandMe Wed 03-Jun-09 13:09:38

I bought a purple patent pair and a red patent pair of Madrids this year. The purple are my favourite.

I also have some flowery arizona's and some with 3 small straps which are lovely too. they are a couple of years old but still going strong.

Red patent for me this year.

I have lime green smile. I am a new convert.

scattyspice I have the lime green ones too, they are lovely.

Same as last year for me - a blue floral pair and a pink floral pair. Considering silver though as that tends to go with more stuff.

TheMadHouse Wed 03-Jun-09 14:03:02

The silver are nice and blends really well. I would love a green patent pair, but can not justify the spend, as I need specs too

MummyElk Wed 03-Jun-09 14:05:25

gold for me! though it's more like bronze!! love em

Stilla Wed 03-Jun-09 14:33:19

Black,White & Silver madrids for me .
Also have pair of black gizzah.

norkmaiden Wed 03-Jun-09 14:42:39

silver madrids here - will live in them all summer (already have the tell-tale stripe across my foot to show for it!)

bagpuss Wed 03-Jun-09 14:46:32

Have trusty pair of black madrids but am lusting after silver or possibly red or purple patent ones. I also have white ibizas and lilac arizonas.

wasabipeanut Wed 03-Jun-09 14:51:22

I have purple patent and pale blue Madrids. I live in the purple at the mo.

Also got a green, suede type effect 2 bar pair (not sure what proper name for them is!) I heart these also.

Am lusting after the red patent this year - fab with jeans.

Wheelybug Wed 03-Jun-09 14:55:26

black patent here although wore my silver ones out and would like another pair. Would also like purple patent

FairyMum Wed 03-Jun-09 17:13:27

Can you get anything more frumpy though? I don't get these shoes at all.

DarrellRivers Wed 03-Jun-09 17:18:14

Well, I suspect FM you are on the wrong thread, as you are probably not wearing a pair this year.
Just because you don't like them, doesn't mean the whole world shares your opinions hmm

minko Wed 03-Jun-09 17:21:51

Pink and white for me. And also dark pink or khaki Gizehs too. Love summer - don't have to think about footwear!

TheGashlycrumbTinies Wed 03-Jun-09 17:24:07

Bronze ones from TK Maxx, only £20!

ILikeToMoveItMoveIt Wed 03-Jun-09 17:40:15

Bronze and black Madrids
White, silver and khaki gizeh

Oh, this thread is wanting me to buy some more. This year is the first year in ages that I haven't bought any. I'm loving the sound of the hot pink ones .......

I've just this minute got my first pair -- gold. I wish I'd gone for red, tbh. The gold is a bit beigey.

I'm disappointed so far! My feet look like fat, splayed-out lumps and I don't even think they're that comfy! Will they get better? Do they need to be worn-in a bit?

I got them as every Mum at the school wears them so I thought I must be missing something not to own any. But so far I'm a bit hmm. Maybe my feet are the problem - I'm a size 7. Do they look better on teeny-tiny doll's-sized feet?

They get comfier.

They look best with long trousers/jeans and hot nail varnish smile.
