Typically known for wearing dress shoes — such as the classic sheer black pair of pumps she wore on “Good Morning America” in January while promoting her Netflix film “Griselda” and the Amina Muaddi PVC platforms she fashioned this past August while filming a new season of “America’s Got Talent” alongside co-star Heidi Klum in Los Angeles — the actress chose to keep it casual this go-round while strolling the streets of Pasadena with her furry companion.

The “Modern Family” star prefers flat sandals, ankle boots, and platform sneakers for her relaxed outings, counting Puma’s Cali wedge sneaker as one of her favorites. Vergara has also recently been spotted wearing Dior’s D-Player high-tops, considering the brand alongside Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, and Saint Laurent, amongst others, as several of her favorite go-to footwear designers.

Many brands, designers included, have created their own variations of the model. Givenchy has a pair of black logo rubber sandal slides available for $295. The shoes are crafted with rubber and feature a platform rubber sole, open toe and vamp strap. The Givenchy logo is present on the strap and sole, and a molded footbed is built-in for comfort while walking.

About Birkenstock

The history of Birkenstock dates back to the late 1700s when they were founded by Johann Adam Birkenstock. The original intent of the Birkenstock was to have a purposeful shoe that could properly support and contour the foot, as many shoes of that era were improperly made, which in turn resulted in foot problems and injuries. The overall purpose of Birkenstocks are still the same today, however they have also become among a very popular footwear choice in terms of style as they are quite versatile and easy to pair with many different outfits. The peak of their popularity was during the late 1960s and early 1970s as they were frequently worn by hippies. The style is one that has frequently been seen in the likes of Kendall Jenner, Ariana Grande and Gigi Hadid, amongst other celebrities.
