Today, the tradition-rich family-run business based in Neustadt is not only one of the top five global footwear brands, but also one of the most well-known German brands in the world. First mentioned in 1774, the company soon became known for producing flexible footbed insoles. At the beginning of the 1960s, Karl Birkenstock eventually developed the matching shoes – the famous Birkenstock sandals were born. Today, after more than 200 years of company history, Birkenstock stands for quality “Made in Germany” and excellent comfort. This is due above all to the unique, anatomically shaped Birkenstock footbed. Its ergonomic construction supports the natural posture of your feet and provides relieve for your joints while exercising your leg muscles. Only natural materials from sustainable sources of raw materials such as natural cork and latex, jute and suede are used in production to ensure maximum comfort and a healthy environment for your feet. In addition, all Birkenstock models are mainly made by hand with great attention to detail. They are available in a large variety of fashionable designs and colours ranging from clean, monochrome styles and delicate pastel shades to metallic effects and exotic patterns. These lightweight and durable sandals are extremely versatile and a classic wardrobe staple. Do your feet a favour while looking stylish with a new pair of Birkenstock sandals!
