It’s never too late to buy a BIRKENSTOCK. If you’ve never bought one before, now is a good time as any to get started on a journey that will redefine comfortable footwear for you. Plus, our footwear is definitely high up on the style quotient with timeless, gender-neutral designs and diverse color and finish options. Here are six significant things you must know before you get started on your BIRKENSTOCK journey:1. Good things take time: When you first buy and wear any BIRKENSTOCK footwear, you need to break them in. Wear them around the house for an hour or two, and increase the duration gradually over a couple of days. Fine-tune the fitting with the help of adjustable buckle straps. Allow the footbed and the upper to contour and adjust to the shape and pressure of your feet before the real magic begins!
3. The Magic of the Iconic Footbed: Every BIRKENSTOCK sandal features the iconic footbed. The footbed is responsible for the unparalleled comfort you experience while wearing our footwear. Inspired by footprints on a sandy beach, it cradles your feet to perfection. The anatomically shaped design supports, balances, grips, and aids your feet during the rolling motion of walking. It promotes good foot health and helps maintain a natural stance.
4. BIRKENSTOCKS have a long life: We use only high-quality materials while making your shoes and sandals. The materials are procured or produced sustainably, and constant checks are put in place to ensure that they are skin-friendly and durable. When well-cared for, BIRKENSTOCKS can last you years. Our comprehensive shoe-care kit contains everything you need to maintain and clean the cork footbed, and natural and synthetic uppers. For detailed shoe care tips, click here.
5. There’s no such thing as too many BIRKENSTOCKS: Take your pick from minimal single or double-strap sandals, stable backstrap sandals, comfy clogs, stylish multi-strap sandals and platform heels, shoes, boots, and even home slippers. No matter what your style, we have you covered. From conventional classics like Arizona, Gizeh, Boston, and Madrid to offbeat choices like Yao, Franca, Byblos and more, our diverse range of sandals and shoes is equal parts stylish, comfortable, and versatile.
