Birkenstock Footbed


Birkenstock Footbed Types

Original

Our original contoured footbed fits feet with an average arch and a neutral gait.

Soft-Footbed

A soft Birkenstock? Longtime fans may not believe it, but for folks that are new to our shoes, those with low arches, over-pronaters, or those who just want a bit more cushion, we offer our soft-footbed. It’s our time-tested cork construction with an extra layer of soft foam, filled with millions of tiny air bubbles.

High Arch

Need a little more support? Do you have high arches or over supinate? Then this is the Birkenstock for you. Based on our traditional footbed the medial arch is higher, the metatarsal arch is higher, and the heel cup is deeper. It all adds up to increased arch support and stability.
