Birkenstock headquarters, production and logistics based throughout Germany
At Birkenstock, tradition and heritage are important hallmarks of a brand that dates back not years or even decades, but centuries. Birkenstock is deeply rooted in the fine art of crafting premium quality shoes that are good for you. 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 "Classic" Footbed
01 | FIRST LAYER OF JUTE The first layer of jute forms the foundation of our footbed. It stabilises the natural cork and latex core.
02 | CORK AND LATEX FOOTBED The cork and latex footbed is the heart of all BIRKENSTOCK shoes. The shock-absorbing and highly flexible cork and latex core supports and relieves pressure on the feet. The natural materials insulate against the heat and cold and create a good foot climate.
03 | SECOND LAYER OF JUTE The second layer of jute is placed around the sides of the footbed. This increases the flexibility of the footbed and makes it significantly more durable. This layer of thick, absorbent jute helps to regulate moisture.
04 | SUEDE LINING The suede lining absorbs moisture. This natural property of the high-quality top layer helps to ensure a pleasant foot climate.
The "SOFT" Footbed
The integrated soft footbed has the same properties as the original footbed. The additional foam insert in the soft footbed provides even more comfort.
05 | FOAM INSERT
The soft footbed is padded with an anatomically shaped foam insert.This insert contains millions of tiny air bubbles that help provide an especially comfortable experience.
