30 years ago the founder of Margot
Fraser has a dream of sharing the ultimate comfort and health benefits
of Birkenstock shoes and from where this company began working. Before
thinking about this concept and few years before the inauguration of
this company she visited German Resort and tried her first pair and the
result was simply amazing and extremely impressive as the felt really
good. This Birkenstock
family has become the shoe makers for about 225 years now. They have
spent more than two centuries of creating and perfecting a tradition of

the goal of making these sandals and to create stylish sandals. All
these sandals are manufactured in Germany using environmentally-friendly

there product outstanding. These important elements are as follows:
An orthopedic foot bed has been
provided. It follows the contours of the foot and provides support
when you are walking. Depending on the model and its intended use
these foot bed are made from a lightweight resilient cork/blend and
washable water-based polyurethane.
The good arch support
system-this ensures even weight distribution and also reduces foot
and leg muscle fatigue.
Deep Heel cups- this keep the
foot's natural padding directly under the heel bone and where it
provides the most comfort zone just as Mother Nature Intended.
They have Raised toe bar- this
feature encourages the gripping motion of your toes and exercising
your legs and improving circulation. The poor circulation
contributes significantly to the muscle fatigue which means that you
will get maximum comfort even while walking slow.

EVA which are very lightweight and made from ethyle vinyl acetate to

support. there are many design of kids shoes which can also be purchased

Lagre portion of these shoes are
completely repairable and renewable which reduces the potential for tons
of waster to be dumped in landfills each year. A perfect brand overall.
Following are the reviews submitted by Brikenstock
customers on different online restialers:
I love my Birko flor footwear, but I did need to return
the first pair because they were too wide. I do not normally take a
narrow shoe, but I needed narrow for the brand. I also went 1 size up
since I didn't want to grow out of them too soon!! I absolutely love
Boston Sandals. This
is my second pair of birkibuc's and I probably waited too long to order
them. My previous pair had lasted 5 years, and were well worn. Shoebuy
was fast, efficient, and easy to use.
I LOVE these shoes. They have made a difference in the
amount of walking that I am able to do. Since my feet don't hurt, I
spend a lot more time walking. I have trouble wearing a lot of shoes,
but not these. Right out of the box they were a perfect fit. I have
never owned a true pair of Birkenstocks until now. I'm going to Mexico
City soon and wanted to be sure I had sturdy, comfortable sandals for
walking in the warm climate, so, I finally decided to try the real
thing! I've been wearing them off and on with socks, but it's finally
warm enough to go sans socks. My toes feel so free! Please take the time
to gradually break them in over several days before you decide you don't
like them. They will feel very stiff at first, but will gradually become
more comfortable to your foot.
I have problems with my feet and like this shoe for
its comfortable fit and ease of getting on and off. The only thing I do
not like is the texture of the foot-bed against my bare feet.I bought
this shoe to replace a pair that I had worn for more than 10 years and
look really bad. I have several pair of shoes and like them for fact
that they wear well and remain comfortable no matter how old they are. I
wear them almost everywhere including church.
This is my first pair of shoe and I'm very impressed
with the comfort. I ordered this style because it was one recommended
for people with plantar fasciitis; I have this problem with my right
foot. These shoes provide support that relieves that pain when walking.
It has taken me 3-4 weeks to become accustomed to the feel of this
brand, but overall, I like them. The only problem that I have noticed
with this style is that the outer edge of the sole -- just anterior to
the heel cup on both shoe -- is significantly raised and puts pressure
on my feet; my feet are sore in those areas after wearing the shoes for
I judged the size based on a pair of Birkie clogs I'd
bought a year ago: the same size, but the footbed on these is slightly
longer. The width is perfect. My only complaint is that apparently
Birkenstock feels that wide feet are also "fat" or thick as opposed to
my wide but *flat* feet; the straps on each shoe are both tightened up
to the very first buckle hole, and it's just barely enough to
comfortably hold them on my feet when I don't have thick socks on. (Yes,
I often wear socks with my sandals; I am in Alaska, after all.) This
means the straps protrude about 1/2 to 3/4" past the outside edge of the
shoe, but since I only bought them to wear around the house it is not
too awkward. A bit clunky-looking, but then I expected that. :)
I have never been disappointed with them. I used to
buy them in Europe when the dollar was stronger then I found that they
were too expensive and I was delighted to find this web site where I can
still afford this great manufacturer's products. The sandals provides
the right support, they are comfortable, they are leather and made in
Germany. I am delighted to know I can purchase a product that is the
real thing and not a copy from China. I bought these sandals because I
heard so many people say how comfortable they were and how they were
"great for your feet". All the reviews I read seemed to agree. When I
inintially put them on my impression was that they were very stiff and
hard. On the plus side, they do have great arch support. I know some
people have to wear them a while to break them in, I guess I am still
breaking mine in. They have become a little more comfortable, but the
leather between the toes is almost too much and after walking an hour it
begins to hurt. I'm hoping these will turn out to be as comfortable as
all the reviews say but so far I can't totally agree.
I wore my first pair to death! These are the first
pair of shoes I've ever worn out. If you've never worn them before the
toe piece may take some getting use to. Otherwise they are very
comfortable. Especially once the cork has softened after a couple of
wears. I had to buy a new, 2nd pair in silver. I have them in black and
red patent. I really like these sandals...can you tell? I am normally a
size 9, so I bought these in a size 40 the first time. There was too
much room around the toe area for my taste. Therefore, I prefer the 39
which I believe is an 8.
I had always heard positive things about
but I had no idea what I was in store for when they arrived at my door.
As a person who has grown accustomed to tired feet after wearing regular
flip flops, I was pleasantly surprised by how great my feet felt while
and after wearing these shoes. I felt they were true to size and width,
gave great support, and seemed almost unaffected by mud, rain or
anything else I could throw at them. All and all, they are great shoes.
Oh, and their modern and stylish look didn't hurt either. Buy these or
any other pair of Birkenstocks and you'll never look back.
I've been wearing birks exclusively since I started
high school, and still wear them every day to college. I have gone
through 3 pairs. 2 Suede and 1 Nubuck. The suedes are perfect when they
are fully broken in at around 2 months but if you have hairy feet like I
do it may yank on them. The suede also looks really dirty after a while.
I got the cheaper ones last time to save money and they worked out
great. Will try leather next. I walk several miles daily in them and buy
new ones once every 15 months.
