BIRKENSTOCK

Design Secrets

BIRKENSTOCK shoes are masterpieces based on the family’s 230-year footwear manufacturing experience. Their secret to success is a thorough understanding and research of feet. Human feet are made to walk on soft mud or grass, but in modern society we often walk on hard surfaces covered by concrete or asphalt. Birkenstock footwear combines ergonomics and the art of materials science recreating an appropriate walking surface for humans helping feet to recover natural function and health.
