  • Former supermodel Paulina Porizkova rocked her Birkenstock Yao Slide sandals while traveling in Prague.

  • The 57-year-old wore the ultra-comfy sandals while shopping, touring the city, and walking the cobblestone streets with friends after dinner.

  • Podiatrists love Birkenstocks for the shoes’ built-in arch support and cushioning.


Paulina Porizkova’s gorgeous trip to Prague seems like one for the books. Though her trip is full of gorgeous scenes and an even more captivating Porizkova, we really can’t stop thinking about the stunning wardrobe she’s packed for the trip. The supermodel has posted multiple photos to her Instagram wearing flowy, summer-approved dresses and a pair of ultra-comfy slides.

Porizkova shared in the comments section that the shoes are Birkenstocks, and after a bit of digging, it looks like her sandal of choice is the Birkenstock Yao Slide. The sandals come in multiple color and size options and feature a unique foot strap design.

Like all Birkenstock sandals, the shoes have the same cork footbed that provides extra comfort by molding to the shape of your foot for the ultimate support. Porizkova wore the same pair of sandals shopping during the day as she did while walking on cobblestone streets with her friends at night.

Though many fans jumped into the comments section to compliment Porizkova on the stunning dresses she wore throughout her vacay, some were more focused on her footwear. “Rocking the ‘Birkenstocks’ big time!” one fan commented. Porizkova then replied, “Best ever for walking all day.”

Porizkova isn’t the only one who’s a fan of Birkenstocks sandals. Tracee Ellis Ross rocked red Birkenstocks at the 2021 Emmys. She opted for the vibrantly-colored Birkenstock Unisex Arizona Essentials UVA Sandal, which paired perfectly with her stunning red gown.

Experts have also long been fans of the brand. “Birkenstocks offer great sandals with built-in arch support and cushioning,” Diane Koshimune. D.P.M., a podiatrist based in San Jose, CA, and a spokesperson for the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) previously told Prevention.

Birkenstock’s Arizona Slide Sandal was named Prevention’s best sandal for plantar fasciitis. And, the Birkenstock Gizeh EVA Flip-Flops were included in Prevention’s rundown of the best flip-flops with arch support.
