The Birkenstock story begins in the late 1700s with Johann Adam Birkenstock, a shoemaker committed to the providing high quality footwear for his community. That commitment was passed down to Konrad Birkenstock who had a visionary idea in the mid-1800s: make and sell flexible footbed inserts.
And so the footbed was born.

There is a long history behind these insoles. Quality, craftsmanship, and tradition have set Birkenstock apart from the very beginning. It was in 1896 that flexible footbed insoles were first manufactured by master cobbler Konrad Birkenstock. In 1902 he developed the first contoured arch support. Then in 1925 the famous “blue footbed” arch support was one of the products manufactured at Birkenstock’s newly-opened facility in Friedberg, Germany. The Birkenstock name and products were finally introduced to the United States in 1966. Now you can experience the support that have provided pain relief and comfort for centuries.
Use of the Birkenstock orthotic supports the natural anatomy of the foot and thus the entire musculoskeletal system. This contributes to healthy posture and the ability to walk and stand for long periods of time pain-free. Enjoy comfortable gait with the insert that helps your foot to hold its anatomically correct shape with every step.
