A design by Paula Boudes for PureWow featuring the new Birkenstock Uji sandals in black, nude and surf green.

The Birkenstock Uji sandals hit the scene in 2023, and unsurprisingly, everyone wanted a pair. Unlike most of the brand's signature sandals, which come with buckles, these babies feature super convenient velcro straps that make adjusting them a total breeze. Now, while we loved the shoes' original suede construction, we can't say we're not swooning over the *new* Birkenstock Uji high shine sandals ($160). The updated style, which is exclusively available at Nordstrom, features a velvety Nubuck leather upper with sleek, shiny straps that seriously up the style factor. And, guys, if there's anything we know about the material, it's that it's super durable and breathable, making it a great choice for footwear in the spring and summer.

Since we wax poetic about our Birkenstocks every chance we get, you already know we're buying these shiny Uji slides before summer arrives, especially since there's a high chance they'll sell out before then. Thanks to their grippy treads and beloved contoured cork footbed that molds to fit your feet just right (as Goldilocks would say), these sandals are unquestionably comfy. Even more so now that you can easily adjust the hook-and-loop velcro straps to get the perfect fit. The high-gloss leather straps, which remind us of this Arizona Big Buckle style ($170), are literally the cherry on top.


They're available at Nordstrom in three colors at the moment (black, nude and a summery surf green), and we wouldn't blame you for scooping them up in more than one hue. Just be sure to grab 'em fast—once everyone finds out this fan-favorite style got a glossy upgrade for summer, it won't be long before they're out of stock.
