When you step out of the back of a Birkenstock your foot lands on a ridge formed by the edge of the cork sole, and when you put your weight down on it, it hurts like hell. Every spring, I get my Birkenstocks out and actually put them on. I marvel at how comfortable they are, and then on the first or second day I step out of them accidentally and, OUCH! That hurts! I resolve to be more careful and continue. Then the next day I do it again when I will put them away until the following spring.
