The GILFORD worker look. A nonslip sole, a seven-hole lacing section and an interior made entirely of leather are just some of the unique features of this shoe. The leather loop in the back makes it a snap to put this shoe on and take it off.
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.
