The Complete Guide to Birkenstock Sandals

Birkenstock is back and is here to stay. Birkenstock is known for its iconic styling and the invention of the footbed. Recently the brand has also teamed up with legendary designers and can be seen across the globe. The Birkenstock is one of the only products on the globe that is both a fashion and a comfort statement. Worn and cherished by all ages. 

We wanted to share with you some of the brands history as not many know its significance upon the world. 

 

History

Birkenstock can be traced back to 1774. It all started with shoemaker Johaan Adam Birkenstock and his commitment to craftsmanship which has been passed down from generation to generation. His great-great grandson Konran Birkenstock had an excellent idea to make and to sell flexible footbed inserts. He then invented the legendary Birkenstock footbed. The footbed paved the way for Birkenstock's success and a factory was opened in Friedburg, Germany. The footbeds soon became admired by professionals and the term anatomically shaped insole was developed. 

 

The Original Footbed

At the heart of every Birkenstock is their original footbed. The construction helps your feet find comfort and supports the health of the foot. The deep moulding in the heel area supports the foot tissue and holds the heel bone firmly in position. The footbed provides a high level of support and is a deep cup. The heel mould activates the calf muscles and helps to improve coordination. The support that runs through the middle of the footbed stabilises the metatarsal bone which helps to ensure that the foot has a naturally straight and solid stance. There are raised indentations at the front of the footbed near the toes to help the toes spread out into their natural position.
