It’s not uncommon to side-eye new trends when they pop up on the runway, but the return of the Birkenstocks this spring is perhaps the most polarizing—because it’s becoming a serious reality. Casual slip-on sandals have been showing up everywhere (even on our site!) thanks to their debut on Celine’s Spring 2013 runway.

So, we let two Nasty Gal writers sound off on why they think the return of Birks is the best (and worst!) thing that’s happened to the fashion world as of late.
