Birkenstock, Gladiator Sandals
Birkenstock – sandals, shoes and slippers for the comfort lover
Some shoe brands don’t need any further introduction. Birkenstock is such a brand. The brand name stands for the incredibly comfortable slippers and sandals as well as for excellent German quality. The fashion industry has given these shoes a boost by embracing their comfort and understanding the importance of taking good care of your feet.
Birkenstock – dating back to the 18th century
The story behind Birkenstock can be traced all the way back to the 18th century, when a shoemaker by the name of Johann Adam Birkenstock was active in the German province of Hessen. By the end of the 19th century, his descendant Konrad Birkenstock developed a special kind of inner sole that made the shoes more comfortable, which another descendant, Karl Birkenstock, developed into a full shoe in the 1960’s – and that is how the Birkenstock shoe came to be.
Shoes that your feet will love
Birkenstock are primarily known for their slippers but they also design closed shoes that are just as comfy. The secret behind a pair of Birkenstocks is the sole that supports the entire foot. The cavity which is usually formed at the arch and the toes are marked with elevated areas on the sole of Birkenstock shoes which provide the perfect support for your feet.
Functional shoes with classic and timeless design
Birkenstock’s shoes are always made in very functional materials and you can be sure that you are investing in quality shoes when you buy a pair from Birkenstock. The sole of a pair of Birkenstocks is made of cork, a lightweight material that also provides great shock absorption when you are walking. With today’s fashion you can wear your Birkenstocks with everything; they go with a pair of shorts, a maxi dress, comfy linen trousers as well as your work outfit.
