Over the past few years, Birkenstock has become an extremely popular brand, especially during the summer months. Perhaps it is due to the breathable leather footbed that most the styles have. This provides comfort for your feet and leaves feeling fresh even after long day of walking in hot sunny weather. Many brands have tried to copy Birkenstock's footwear range by also creating a moulded footbed sandal, however, German footwear engineering has been resilient to being easily replicated and has responded by introducing new innovative designs and colours.
With roots in the shoemaking industry that go back over two centuries, the Birkenstock brand have gone from providing bespoke artisan footwear in Germany to being a renowned global shoe giant. So where did it all begin? In 1774, Herr Johann Adam Birkenstock set up a family business which has ever since hinged on the philosophy of combining tradition with innovation.
In 1897 Konrad Birkenstock – Johann's grandson – came up with the first contoured insole used by shoemakers in the making of tailored footwear. In 1902, Konrad invented the flexible arch support that was inserted inside many a mass produced shoe. This was later developed into a shoe in its own right by Karl Birkenstock in 1964. And so, the classic and unmistakable Birkenstock flat sandal was born.
These sandals are made for your feet. Literally. Using a cork and latex sole lined with leather, these sandals will mould to the contours of your feet and toes, giving maximum comfort whilst also helping to improve posture, circulation and weight distribution. In fact, Much of Birkenstock's success is owed to their healing powers. In 1967, American business women Margot Fraser had a bit of a sore foot whilst on holiday in Germany... she tried on some Birkenstock flat sandals and decided to set up a trading company in the USA. Since then, the brand has gained huge popularity. Praised for their comfortable qualities and coveted for their simplistic yet striking stylishness, the sandals have been a firm favourite amongst working professionals and fashion icons alike. In the US, the flat sandals have become synonymous with kicking back and hanging loose, donned by the flower children in the 60s and generation Xers in the 90s. The sandals remain the footwear of choice for young men and women who aren't afraid to wear their liberalism on their feet.
