We're not really sure what it is about Birkenstocks, but you can't not love them — especially in the summertime. The sandal burst onto the scene way back in the '60s, and though they wane in popularity every now and again, they keep popping up as a new trend every couple of years or so — and we're totally not complaining. Birks are comfy and versatile, and they have a hippie vibe everyone can dig, even if you're the furthest thing from a hippie.

But for a sandal that was first made popular by the all-natural, peace-and-one-love crowd, Birkenstocks sure cost a pretty penny. So, what do you do when you want to live in some Birks but can't (or won't) shell out upwards of 100 bucks? You purchase some stellar look-alikes, that's what you do.

We found a bunch of sandals that have that same Birkenstock-y feel but are at a much more agreeable price point — that way, you can have more than one pair to rock this summer.
