Quality craftsmanship to better support
your feet…and improve your health
In 1774, the German shoemaker Johann Adam
Birkenstock had the vision of offering comfortable insoles
that promote healthy feet and thus laid the foundation
of our anatomically shaped footbed insoles. Today,
after over 230 years of great innovations, modern
footbed insoles fill more and more people
with enthusiasm daily.
In the 1960s, Birkenstock's introduced its
"Fitness sandal", thus answering the needs of an
ever-growing number of consumers looking for comfort,
quality and a different kind of footwear. By ensuring that the foot
is supported properly, these sandals improve the posture
of the entire body… which ultimately leads to an improved level
of well-being. Many collections were developed to answer
the specific needs of its clientele; our medical clogs, for
example, are adapted to the needs of the healthcare sector worker.
Birkenstock enjoys enormous success and continues to grow, offering many different
styles of sandals and shoes distributed in over 80 countries.
