The name BIRKENSTOCK is not only known throughout Germany, but also worldwide, and is one of the most well-known shoe brands. From 1774 until 2013, the company was in family hands. Nowadays it is a large corporation which for many years has been mainly known for its sandals with a pronounced footbed. What is today common practice among many shoe manufacturers, was an innovation at the time. Over the years, BIRKENSTOCK has seen many imitations of their footwear, and now licenses certain products that fulfil the ethos of the company. This includes the four topics of feet and walking, work, sleep and living, as well as a healthy attitude to life.
The goal of BIRKENSTOCK shoes is always to promote healthy feet. Shoes with pointed toes are therefore sought in vain. Characteristics include space for the whole foot, the footbed is often placed on flexible cork and the upper materials also make it easier for the foot to breathe and move. The straps can be adjusted with buckles to optimally adapt to each respective foot. While the insole provides comfort for the foot, a skilful mix of materials in the outer sole ensures the maximum cushioning effect. This in turn is responsible for the high level of comfort.
Several BIRKENSTOCK shoes are easily recognisable as such, including the famous bone profile of the EVA soles. There are also rivets with an embossed logo. The classic fit is known to every shoe lover. So it is no wonder that designs introduced decades ago, such as ""Madrid"" – introduced in 1964 as the first BIRKENSTOCK sandal –, ""Arizona"", ""Boston"" and ""Milano"", are still popular and sought after today for the mostly unchanged format. In addition, BIRKENSTOCK applies chic accents like eye-catching decorative rivets.
In addition to the world-famous sandals, the company also produces half-closed and closed shoes, and nowadays sneakers and ballerinas too. The range includes products for the whole family, in many colours, various cuts and a large variety of designs. They also make shoes aimed at various professions. So, if you want, you can walk in BIRKENSTOCK shoes all year round. There's plenty of variety, so the shoes will go with skirts and trousers, short and long garments, and with any style. In addition to the classics, there are, among others, shiny and refined strappy sandals for women and timelessly elegant half-boots for men. They even offer boat shoes. Have a look!
