If anyone knows me, you know that by the time the weather gets above 50 degrees, I’ll have on my favorite pair of white sandals. Those sandals just happen to be from a brand called Birkenstocks, and they quickly became my favorite shoes. Birkenstocks have a rich history and have developed the brand as a good quality shoe.

Birkenstocks have been designed since 1774 by a German shoemaker who wanted to create shoes in a small village. Johann Adams Birkenstock was committed to his craft and he wanted to provide a comfortable shoe. The commitment to providing the best quality shoe has been passed down from generation to generation all the way to his great-great-grandson Konrad Birkenstock. In 1896 Konrad’s vision was to create comfortable footbed inserts and he came up with the new and improved shoe that we know and love. More than two hundred years later the shoes are known for their function and comfort, and the shoes have a cult following to which I consider myself apart of.

Birkenstocks are created for comfort and the footbed is based on the cast of a healthy foot on the sand. The footbeds are made from cork and rubber for durability and stability, and I can vouch for the company in that aspect. I own two pairs of the shoes and I wear them all spring, summer, and fall, and I haven’t had to repurchase for three years now. I can also support that these shoes are extremely comfortable because I wear them as soon as the weather gets above 50 degrees. You can do anything from hiking to playing recreational sports to just enjoying a day outside in these shoes.

Birkenstocks are known for their versatility and they have a pair for just about everyone. They are such a simple shoe that they can go with any outfit from a sundress to jeans to shorts and Birkenstocks have a pair for everyone. They have multiple different designs of shoes and they come out with new designs often. They are also a unisex shoe so men and women can both enjoy the comfort that Birkenstocks bring. They come in simple colors so they are flattering on everyone, and for the brighter spirits, they have collections of bright colors.

These shoes have been designed to last and mold to the wearers foot the longer they are worn. That feature stands out to be my very favorite about the shoe because they last forever and just get more comfortable as they are worn. While many other shoes fall apart and get uncomfortable the longer they are worn, Birkenstocks do the exact opposite. They have a cult following for their comfort, design, and durability.

As I’m headed off to college, I don’t see my love affair with Birkenstocks ending anytime soon. The desire for comfort when walking places will only grow and my shoes will only get more comfortable the further I walk.

    I just got my first pair for Christmas, and I’ve worn them every single chance I’ve had. I can’t wait to wear them even more this coming spring. I’ve only ever heard great things about the shoes and now that I have my own pair I can stand by that. I really love how you told the history of the shoe. Great article!

    Birkenstocks sound pretty comfortable I have to admit. I like how you described where they came from and why you love them so much. Great Article McKayla!
