Fashion Flashback

I've been spotting these everywhere lately, but I'm not sure I'm loving it.

I have a pair of patent black Birks that my mother bought me years ago as she thought they were better than flip flops (I'm sure they are). I still have them at the back of my shoe closet, but I'm not sure I'll be rushing to get them out anytime soon. I've only worn  mine five times at most, so I'm not quite sure why I've kept them for so long. What are your thoughts on the revival of Birkenstocks?
