What’s better than the BIRKENSTOCK footbed? Honestly, nothing. But we crave constant innovation, and our desire to give you an alleviated level of comfort led to the conception of the soft footbed. It has a more comfortable fit than the traditional footbed. We introduced it to some of our classic styles to curate a soft footbed collection just for you! What makes the sot footbed so special? Read on to find out.
The Structure of the Soft Footbed
There’s no doubt that our regular footbeds are the definition of comfort. But the soft footbed is a whole experience altogether, thanks to the special structure and an additional element to our multi-layered footbed.
- First Jute Style: This forms the base of the footbed and helps in stabilizing the cork-latex layer.
- Cork Latex Bed: All BIRKENSTOCK shoes are built on a cork and latex footbed. The foot is supported and relieved by the cushioned and highly flexible cork-latex core. The natural materials insulate against extreme temperatures, always ensuring a good foot climate.
- Second Jute Style: The second layer of jute is applied along the edge of the bedding. This greatly enhances the bedding's flexibility and lifespan. This insulating layer of dense, absorbent jute fabric aids in controlling moisture.
- Extra Foam Insert: This is where the magic happens. This layer separates the regular footbed from the soft footbed. The anatomically designed foam insert adds to the comfort of the footbed. Millions of tiny air bubbles give it a unique texture and make it extra comfortable to wear.
- Suede Cover: This high-quality layer of leather also helps in moisture regulation and provides smooth and comfortable wear.
