Few sandals are able to serve both fashion and functional purposes, but Birkenstock has a broad range of sandals which includes countless models that accomplish just that. As a result, the most classic Birkenstock designs could be found on runways, while the most fashion-forward styles are comfortable enough to be worn around during everyday activities.

At the heart of every Birkenstock is the footbed that started it all. That’s right, Birkenstock invented the contoured footbed, introducing the concept in the 1930s for anatomically shaped insoles with incredible support. Here’s a look at what their cork footbed means for your feet:
1 – More Toe Room
Allows toes to move naturally, which promotes better balance and correct foot alignment
2 – Raised Toe Bar
Encourages natural gripping motion of your feet
3 – Contoured Footbed
Four arches ensure even weight distribution and proper posture
4 – Deep Heel Cup
Cradles the heel and keeps natural cushioning right under the heel bone
5 – Shock Absorbing Sole
Flexible, durable and lightweight
6 – Jute Fibres
Two layers – one wicks away moisture, the other adds strength
7 – Cork Footbed
Firm, resilient cork/latex base for maximum support
8 – Footbed Liner
Soft suede keeps your feet comfortable and dry
Birkenstock’s Arizona sandal also features a cork footbed, and it’s one of the most classic, well-known and casual Birkenstock styles. For everyday comfort or casual style, try the Arizona:

Maybe you spend time vacationing or have kids who enjoy the outdoors. Birkenstock’s EVA styles are perfect choice. In particular, parents love the functional features the EVA styles provide. EVA stands for ethylene vinyl acetate, a high-quality, lightweight, elastic material with very good cushioning. It’s skin-friendly, odourless and washable which makes it an obvious no-brainer for your kids. Plus, EVA smooths out slight irregularities in the floor and ensures that every step is softly cushioned so you can remain as relaxed and comfortable as possible while pool (or ocean)-side!
Here’s our roundup of colourful EVA styles for kids:
…we didn’t forget about the parents!
