Tradition and heritage are important hallmarks of Birkenstock that dates back centuries. Birkenstock is deeply rooted in the fine art of crafting premium quality shoes with European craftsmanship. Since 1774, Birkenstock has passed this commitment down from one generation to the next. The result is the absolute best in quality, comfort and support.
The original Birkenstock footbed is the heart of all models. While today it is synonymous with exceptional comfort, the word «footbed» was first used by Birkenstock in the 1930s to describe anatomically shaped inner soles with special support elements.
