The Birkenstock tradition of quality craftsmanship goes back more than 225 years. Crafted in Germany, our footwear is created using only premium products and materials. Starting with high-grade leather, suede, nubuck, and non-leather uppers, Birkenstock footwear also includes our unique contoured foot bed, shock- absorbing soles and specially designed buckles for years of comfort and durability. It’s made of cork, latex, and jute; all natural, all sustainable, renewable materials of the highest quality. These contours ensure proper weight distribution with raised arches to help support the foot’s natural shape and structure. The result is improved posture and balance for greater comfort when walking.
