About birkenstock

We had one vision since 1774: make shoes that are great for your feet.
Our values and principles trace back to centuries ago when Birkenstock first invented the original Birkenstock footbed. Since then, we’ve built up a wealth of experience in making high-quality footwear that has been passed down from one generation to the next.

We are committed to making orthopedically-inspired shoes that promote well-being. Rather than chasing short-lived trends, we place a greater value in making shoes that are durable, functional and made of high-quality natural materials.
