The name Birkenstock is synonymous with comfort and quality design from Germany. A tradition since 1774, the same classic Birkenstock line of clogs, sandals and shoes, consisting of the famous latex and cork foot bed, with arch support, exists today. Made in Germany, and certified by TUV (the German body for Product Testing), Birkenstock footwear is designed to reflect the key values of the company, which are: Quality Craftsmanship, Health, wellness and sensitivity to the environment.
Only the best quality materials are used in the manufacture of Birkenstock footwear, the uppers of each pair made out of suede or genuine leather. Cork and natural latex are used in the foot beds which are contoured to follow the natural shape of the foot, which allows the arches to be raised and the weight to be evenly distributed. This foot bed design promotes proper balance and improved blood circulation with every step.
The basic and simple design of Birkenstock footwear belie the complexity of the design of the foot bed. The Birkenstock foot bed was designed by orthopedics to be as good for your whole body as they are for your feet. Using the anatomy of a healthy foot, they designed a comfortable foot bed that provides flexibility and movement. The heel area of the foot bed is deep enough to provide even distribution of weight over the entire foot, which gives the wearer the experience of a stable and sturdy foundation for a more natural gait. The orthopedic design corrects posture which provides proper back and spine support. Therefore, Birkenstock footwear is not only super comfortable, but also supports the overall health of the body through correct posture.
The toe area of Birkenstock footwear has been designed with ample, contoured space, with room for the toes to stretch out when walking, and return to rest after each step. This natural way of walking prevents muscle cramping and toe chafing, as the toes are allowed to grip the foot bed and release naturally.
Birkenstock shoes are hard wearing and have been designed to last for many years. German craftsmanship is known for quality as well as durability of the materials used in the manufacture of Birkenstock footwear. The pleasant experience of walking in Birkenstock shoes will result, over time, in the foot bed taking on the unique contours of the individual’s own feet, creating a foot bed that is custom shaped for comfort.
The single most important feature of a well designed shoe is its comfort level. Birkenstock shoes, with its long tradition of quality crafted sandals and clogs, as well as shoes, are made from the highest quality materials for your comfort. Special attention has been paid to the design of the foot bed to offer the wearer a comfortable walk as well as taking great care that the whole body is balanced, with good posture, for the health of the back and the spine.
