Birkenstock footbeds are made of cork and natural latex, and contoured in the shape of a healthy foot. These contours ensure proper weight distribution with raised arches to help support the foot's natural shape and structure. The toe bar allows the toes to grip and flex, stimulating circulation, exercising the leg, and helping to maintain balance. The deep heel cup keeps the foot's natural padding under the heel to provide stability. As a result of these factors, the correct bones bear the weight of the body to keep the spine and legs in alignment.
The Birkenstock tradition of quality craftsmanship goes back more than 225 years. Crafted in Germany, our foot- wear is created using only premium products and materials. Starting with high-grade leather, suede, nubuck, and non- leather uppers, we dye our materials all the way through for a lasting look. Birkenstock footwear also includes our unique contoured footbed, shock-absorbing soles and specially designed buckles for years of comfort and durability. Almost every component of our footwear can be repaired or replaced, making Birkenstock footwear a long-lasting investment in the health of your feet.
