The London is a genuine classic within the BIRKENSTOCK Shoes collection. The construction is the same as for a BIRKENSTOCK sandal. Here, the upper is directly attached to the footbed, with both components securely connected to the outer sole. The London model comprises just three shaft sections and completely dispenses with seams. The cut is based on the classic Boston model, but comes with a closed heel section. The strap above the instep can be individually adjusted using a nickel-free buckle with an embossed BIRKENSTOCK logo. The sole is made of hard-wearing EVA with the traditional BIRKENSTOCK bone profile.
EACH ONE OF OUR SHOES COMES WITH A FOOTBED
When people use the term footbeds, they're actually talking about BIRKENSTOCK. While footbeds are now synonymous with extraordinary comfort, the term itself was first used by BIRKENSTOCK in the 1930s to denote anatomically shaped insoles that provide special support. Unlike other orthopedic inserts at the time, which were designed to relieve and treat ailing feet, our footbed was conceived with the aim of maintaining healthy feet.
All our models, from sandals to closed-toe shoes, come with a footbed. The carefully thought-out construction imitates a footprint in the sand, ensuring that your feet feel as comfortable as possible for hours on end. The anatomical contours of the footbed reduce pressure and support the natural rolling movement of walking.
The flexible cork and latex core forms the heart of all BIRKENSTOCK footwear to this day. The result is unbeatable wearing comfort.
Today we use only natural materials from sustainable sources in the original BIRKENSTOCK footbed: light natural cork, select jute, high-quality latex and handpicked suede for the lining. In our close-toe models, it's this velvety-soft lining that delivers standout moisture management. The result is increased well-being and a comfortable foot climate when our closed-toe shoes are worn barefoot.
IT´S ONLY GOOD IF IT FEELS GOOD
One of the most important reasons why our customers are so happy with BIRKENSTOCK products lies in our carefully selected materials. Whether it´s comfortable felt, soft leather or cushioned cork: we place great value in the highest quality, both when selecting our materials and when crafting our products. That´s why we´re always on the lookout for the most sustainable sources and the latest materials with the best BIRKENSTOCK qualities.
