A long, long time ago, in a little German village, there was a little cobbler... The story of Birkenstock started just like this and was passed on from generation to generation. The brand never stopped innovating and improving its quality. The son developped the manufacture of ergonomic soles, making Birkenstock known as an orthopedic shoe. The grandson, who is still head of the company, succeeded in making these exceedingly comfortable shoes mainstream and a real fashion accessory! Traditional know-how and respect for the environment make Birkenstock a wardrobe essential. A story that has been going on for 250 years!
