Are you a college professor in southern California..

I had a pair of their shoes. I just never could get used to them.

Maybe if it were 1967 - 72 and you lived in SF Haight-Ashbury, but today. Hell NO. If you have a Man Bun, yeah, but then you have other problems.

They are what Flintstones would wear. They do "connect" you with nature.

I don't think they're any worse than any other sandal.

They are infinitely more comfortable and supportive, though.

Meeting someone wearing Birkenstocks makes me take a big pause....

A female in them makes me think ....she must not care about being female and the word feminine is not in her vocabulary or lifestyle.

Anyhow ... wear what you want. Look in the mirror before you leave
Or she is doing an intense amount of walking and the “feminine” sandals are just not going to cut it. No matter what your gender, if you want a sandal that is going to work for walking longer distances, flip flops are not a good choice. Even the more supportive ones can cause problems since they provide no support to the side of the foot. Let’s face it, if you are in an extremely hot climate, you might not want to wear sneakers or other closed-toed shoes out.

Feminine is an attitude, not a dress code.

You don’t need women’s approval to buy a pair of good, comfortable shoes. Try a pair on. Not everyone can wear Birkies, but if you can, and they are comfortable, buy yourself a pair. Your feet, and the frown lines between your brows, will thank you.

Birkenstocks have been worn for decades now. They are beyond fashion or trends. They are classics.

If you hate them, how they look or how they feel, then buy something else.

With sandals, foot grooming is essential.
