Birkenstock is known for its comfortable shoes and sandals. In the more than 240 years since its founding the family led company revolutionized the industry with focusing on the production of shoes that support our own natural walking movement. This reduces stress on muscles, joints and the back, and promotes a healthy posture. Birkenstocks very own footbed is still a guarantee for the highest wearing comfort. Since 2013 the company is led not only by family members but a professional team.
