Birkenstock, the cork classic comeback kid. Hailing from Germany in 1897, the original contoured footbed designed by Konrad Birkenstock was the result of over a century’s work of family shoe-making. Birkenstock USA has been growing since 1966, and continues to develop new styles and revolutionize footwear wearability. While the fashion world today is embracing an anything-goes style, the clear consensus is that Birkenstock is the epitome of casual comfort. Just ask anyone walking in those iconic Arizona or Gizeh sandals, male or female. Birkenstock is the best way to show your feet love.
