EVERYDAY’S A BEACH / THE ICONIC FOOTBED
Inspired by footprints on sand, the Iconic BIRKENSTOCK Footbed is made from a natural and super flexible cork-latex core. The sole has a 4- or 5-layered base made from jute, cork-latex bed, suede cover, and sometimes a foam cover as well. The anatomically shaped footbed gives your feet the rest they need on pressure points like the heel and the toe.
The curves mimic the imprint of a foot on sand. The heel cup ensures a good hold on the foot and the heel cup improves gait and stance. The arched supports on the sides and center ensure perfect stability during both, movement and rest. The toe grip ensures a natural placement of toes, protected by a high footbed edge. This protects the toes during walking. The footbed is like a warm hug for the soles of your feet.
Once your sole is nestled in the footbed, you’ll get used to the comfort instantly.
