Birkenstock Sandals and Beach Shoes for Women
Birkenstock sandals and beach shoes for women are available in a wide range of styles and designs including slip-ons and mules, T-Bar (or toe post designs), flip flops, strappy sandals and sports sandals. ‘Birkenstocks' are characterized by their contoured cork and rubber ‘footbeds' which are anatomically shaped to mould to the wearer's feet.
Heritage and health
The Birkenstock brand has been at forefront of foot health for many years and in 1932 the ‘Carl Birkenstock System' was endorsed by leading physicians and podiatrists. Birkenstock's popularity soared from 1964, when the company launched its first fitness sandal with a deep and flexible footbed. Named the ‘Madrid', this elegant mule can still be purchased today and has become an essential classic for many fashionistas.
Fashion meets function
Birkenstock sandals and beach shoes for women offer comfort without skimping on style. These super comfy flats can be found in an array of colours from neutrals and brights to sandals with shiny snakeskin effect or bold metallics. Many Birkenstocks have a single strap with an individually adjustable metal pin buckle. Others such as the Arizona have double straps, adjustable to foot width.
Uppers are made of various materials including 100% leather as well as special synthetic blends designed to be skin-friendly and hard-wearing which give a velvety nubuck look. Many Birkenstock sandals and beach shoes for women are also made using environmentally-friendly processes and vegan friendly alternatives to leather such as Birko-Floor® which is both durable and maintains a natural shine.
The Gizeh is a t-bar or classic toepost Birkenstock and makes a durable and stylish choice for trips to the beach. Its simple metal buckle to the outer foot works with the fixed branded single rubber toe post which is designed keeps the foot secure and in place.
All Birkenstock sandals and beach shoes for women have the iconic cork sole designed using ultimate comfort technology, with a moulded heel cup for balance and naturally designed contoured arch support.
