Charlize Theron’s laidback style is seriously affordable, well - sort of.
The 45-year-old Oscar winner may be the face of Dior and have access to the biggest names in fashion, but South African native’s latest look featured a summer footwear staple: Birkenstocks.
On Wednesday, “The Old Guard” star was spotted leaving Nobu in Malibu wearing a trendy tie-dye onesie, $26 Floral Night Face Mask by Werkshop and grey wide brimmed hat. Despite carrying the Dauphine Bag by Louis Vuitton which retails for a cool $3,250, Theron paired her luxe handbag with a pair of Arizona Big Buckle Slide Sandals by Birkenstock.
The German footwear brand has gained a cult following for being an über comfortable summer go-to, thanks to their orthopedic insoles.

While Theron is frequently wearing heels on the red carpet and toughing it out in the gym practicing her own stunts, Birkenstocks offer her A-list feet the reprieve they most definitely deserve. Theron’s not the only celebrity who’s a confirmed Birkenstock fan, Kendall Jenner, Rachel McAdams, Bella Hadid and Katy Perry have all been spotted relaxing in a pair of Birks!
SHOP IT: Nordstrom, $150
What makes Birkenstocks so popular is their cork insole, which contours to your foot over time, meaning the more you wear them, the more comfortable they become. Birkenstocks are known to help aid common foot ailments without having to go the route of pricey custom orthotics. From arch support to plantar fasciitis, bunions to joint pain, Birkenstocks have been known to help alleviate foot and back pain with each step.
Nordstrom carries a wide variety of Birkenstock sandals, including Theron’s Arizona Big Buckle Slides. With their oversized buckles and chic leather uppers, these Birks have a contemporary edge, and have transcended their reputation of being a part of “hippie” style culture.
Nordstrom shoppers have called the Arizona Big Buckle Slides a “top notch” choice for anyone looking to combine comfort and style.
“I have plantar fasciitis and my podiatrist said Birks are approved to wear. So I’ve bought a couple of pairs, and I love them! It’s the first time I’ve worn the shoes, and I’m a total convert,” one shopper wrote.
“I'm so happy with my Birks, the big buckle is definitely cuter than the traditional Arizona buckles,” another wrote. “The shipping was super fast ordered my sandals on a Friday morning by Tuesday morning they were already at my doorstep. I'm a huge fan of Arizona and these are my fifth pair. It's a chic, comfortable year-round sandal with an incredibly soft footbed.”
The Arizona Big Buckle Slides are available in seven different colours, including Theron’s classic black.
