you got the "when it was popular" dates wrong. birkenstocks came back into fashion in '89-90 and stayed popular throughout the 90's. the 80s were a relatively closed-toe decade.

1977- on... Very popular!! We all wore basic open-toed tan two-strap Birkenstocks sandals. Very expensive, but felt great & lasted for years! I'm in my mid-50s & still love wearing them! :0)
