Backed by a family shoemaking legacy that runs over 240 years, the Birkenstock footbed as we know and love today was imagined in 1896 by visionary shoemaker Johann Adam Birkenstock.

A pair of Birkenstock shoes does what it promises - they are functional, well made and durable. Cared for properly, they will last for years. Within their core range are iconic styles (Arizona, Gizeh, Mayari and more) that are made from carefully selected, high-quality materials from sustainable sources. Simply put life is better with a Birkenstock.
