BIRKENSTOCK: The iconic footbed for well-being that starts from the feet.

BIRKENSTOCK: Where Natural Wellness Begins with the Feet

The heart of every BIRKENSTOCK shoe is the original footbed, designed to replicate the imprint of the foot on sand and promote natural and comfortable walking. Its anatomical structure, with a deep heel cup, longitudinal and transverse arches, and forefoot ridges, provides optimal support that reduces fatigue and improves posture and coordination. The raised edge protects the toes, while the natural materials ensure durability, flexibility, and breathability. Not just a sandal, but a philosophy of well-being that starts from the feet.

The Human Foot: A Masterpiece of Nature Challenged by Modern Life

The human foot, with its 26 bones, 33 joints, and 20 muscles, is a marvel of natural engineering designed for movement on varied terrains. However, modern life, with its hard surfaces and ill-fitting footwear, puts a strain on this intricate structure.

An Evolved Foot for the Wild: Our feet developed to move barefoot on uneven terrain, promoting strength, flexibility, and efficiency. Walking on sand encourages perfect weight distribution.

The Problem with Hard Surfaces: Hard, flat surfaces provide no natural stimuli to the foot, weakening it and causing issues like flat feet.

The BIRKENSTOCK Solution: The BIRKENSTOCK footbed, a replica of the foot's imprint on sand, provides support and promotes a natural gait, counteracting the problems caused by hard surfaces.

Benefits of the BIRKENSTOCK Footbed:

  • Supports the arch and promotes its natural movement
  • Distributes weight evenly
  • Stabilizes the foot
  • Protects the toes
  • Promotes natural grip

A Century of Well-being: For over 100 years, BIRKENSTOCK has been committed to improving well-being through the design of footwear that supports the natural anatomy of the foot.
