Gracing the pages of Pinterest and Instagram are hundreds, maybe even thousands professing their love for the Birkenstock brand. A Google search reveals many bloggers and fashion editors recently favoring this foot fashion fad, further enforcing this momentous movement.
Invented and manufactured in Germany by Konrad Birkenstock in 1897, the original Birkenstock contoured footbed has had a few minor design tweaks since its initial inception. Rich in history, the Birkenstock family heritage of shoemaking spans over 230 years. Birkenstock prides itself on creating and perfecting a tradition of walking comfort by creating quality, comfortable, unique, timeless products while respecting the world around them. With their passion for products, appreciation of their culture and a genuine belief in their product and its benefits; Birkenstock’s enormous success continues to grow with many different styles of clogs, sandals and shoes.
The key to their comfort lies in the fabulous footbed. Available in three footbed choices and two widths, their contoured footbed is made of premium, natural materials with the finest craftsmanship. The essence of the Birkenstock footbed is inspired by the natural imprint of a foot in the sand and mimics the feeling of walking barefoot.
Creating shoes that follow your foot’s shape and contours, each and every Birkenstock has a deep heel cup to ensure proper weight distribution and foot alignment; as well as a spacious toe box that gives your toes room to move providing unparalleled comfort. Providing firm support for your feet and encouraging foot health the Birkenstock footbed adapts to your foot’s unique shape and supports the natural walking action of your foot. This protects your feet, joints, muscles and back, while providing maximum comfort. Birkenstock’s famous footbed is also available as an insole form and may be purchased customized to suit your individual needs.
