‘Tis the season for hot cocoa, warm hugs, and of course, a change of style! We’re right at the beginning of the new season of autumn/winter, and that calls for donning an extra layer or two, being part of the Indian festive scene, and pulling all stops to be the best and most comfortably dressed person, no matter where you are. Speaking of style and comfort, we at BIRKENSTOCK are here with some of the best trends (and of course, footwear suggestions) of the season. No season or shoe rack is complete without the perfect sandals and boots by your favorite brand. Read on to find out what the top trends of the season are, and how to stay at the top of your fashion game this winter.
Socks make for a style perk in winters. Apart from keeping your feet warm, the small but vital item of clothing can express volumes. Having a lazy day at work? Wear your most comfy argyle or self-design socks. Have to go bar hopping on a Friday night? Pair quirky prints with somber footwear. A fan of classic style? Go for beautiful knitted designs in self-colors. Socks and Stocks is an arena large enough for all players. Though most BIRKENSTOCK models will pair well with socks, here are our top picks:

The BIRKENSTOCK Comfort
The anatomically shaped footbed is the core of all BIRKENSTOCK footwear models. Inspired by natural footprints on the sand, the footbed contours the curves of the soles of your feet. It has a deep heel cup, longitudinal and transverse arch support, and a toe box that allows your feet to nestle in the footbed comfortably with enough room. It helps maintain a natural stance, improves posture, and prevents ankles from twisting. It also aids in the rolling motion of walking and protects the toes from bumping into anything. Apart from the regular footbed, you can take your pick from footwear featuring a soft footbed, shearling-lined footbed, and the Deep Blue footbed. Our footbeds are available in two widths: regular and narrow.
