During the course of a lifetime, no other part of the body is subject to so much strain as our feet. They maintain the body's balance, absorb impact and bear the entire weight of the body. Birkenstock footwear is designed to offer optimal support.
For a shoe to fit perfectly, it must have the proper length and width - which is why the Birkenstock foot bed is produced in two widths.
When making your purchase, please take note of the correct width symbol: normal width for normal or sturdy feet, narrow width for slim feet. Your feet should sit embedded in the footbed, meaning that you must not be standing on either the inner or outer side of the footbed rim. In addition, you should have several millimeters of space in the heel and toe areas to allow your feet to move freely and naturally with each step you take.
