Birkenstocks are mostly known for two things: their universal visual appeal, and their unparalleled comfort. They’ve been perfecting the design and production process since 1774, using natural materials to make shoes that last for ages.

At the core of all their designs is the original Birkenstock footbed, made of cork-latex. It’s molded after the shape of a footprint in sand, with a deep heel cup, arch support and a raised toe bed to promote balance and alignment and allow for natural toe gripping and improved circulation.

They’re made with care in Germany and Portugal using mostly European-sourced materials and sustainable practices. Although they're unisex, the narrow fits are more suited for women.
