The Birkenstock Company has a rich heritage in high quality shoemaking that reaches back for almost 250 years. Founded in 1774 by Johann Birkenstock, it wasn’t until almost a century later when Johann’s grandson Konrad created the first ever contoured Birkenstock insole, followed by the flexible arch support cork footbed construction almost 3 years later. Fast forward to 1964, Karl Birkenstock was the first in the family to merge these world first innovations into the original Birkenstock Sandal that launched them into a global household name. Ever since, Birkenstock have expanded into a wide collection of footwear fit for an outdoor lifestyle, including sandals, shoes, clogs and boots for all ages and genders, in a range of styles to suit any adventure. Built using premium materials and methods that are both durable and protect our environment in combination with the latest proprietary technologies and fabrics, Birkenstocks offer the most comfortable walking experience possible. Our best sellers, the Arizona Birko-Flor sandals offer a truly custom fit thanks to the two adjustable straps and cork footbed that moulds to the shape of your foot; an iconic staple of any summer wardrobe.
