Some brands talk about tradition, but none can hold the claim quite as well as Birkenstock. Though the last forty years have seen Birkenstock become an indelible part of American footwear, the Birkenstock family has been making shoes for over 230 years. This institution of quality work has translated into a brand consistently known for comfortable fits and distinctive looks.
For years known only to German households, the Birkenstock brand finally crossed over to American shores in 1967, shortly thereafter becoming available to patrons worldwide. Quickly gaining admiration based on their incredible comfort, Birkenstocks have been equally popular between medical professionals as well as the casual, everyday wearer.
Most well known for their definitive sandal style, the Birkenstock brand has diversified to include a wide array of shoes and even clogs. Yes, clogs. Haven't you always felt like getting a little clog in your life? Birkenstock's modern take on a trusty classic fits perfectly with the rest of their spirited line, giving even the most ardent anti-sandal wearers the opportunity to wear a piece of classic comfort.
With no sign of slowing down, the "Birk" will continue to be the go-to sandal for those who value comfort with a classic, yet unique look.
