Birkenstock Makes Quality Footwear

The Birkenstock company has been in business making high quality footwear for more than two hundred years. Made in Germany, Birkenstock shoes, sandals and clogs are constructed with quality craftsmanship using only the best products and materials available. Their contoured shape of the insole, shock absorbing soles, the fine leather and non-leather tops and quality buckle create a shoe that will provide many years of comfortable wear. Every part of these shoes are able to be replaced if needed over time, making them last even longer.

The special designing of the Birkenstocks provide proper weight distribution, with built-in arch support conforming to the foot’s most natural and comfortable shape. The raised shape of the bar between the toes and the foot, known as the toe bar, allow the toes to grip the shoes which in turn creates an exercise for the feet, back and legs causing better balance as a result, along with being an aid to circulation. The deep curve of the heel part of the shoes allow for better stability. All of this put together makes for healthier feet and keep the back and legs in alignment.

The unique comfort and shape of this footwear encourages better health overall. Many people claim that the longer they own their Birkenstocks, the more their feet adapt to the excellent shape of the shoe becoming even more comfortable over time. The foot beds give way to the bones and shape of each individual foot, creating a positive way to keep your feet, knees, legs and back in better health and alignment.

In the course of a good many hours of standing and walking, proper shoes are essential to your good health. The essential fact that these shoes are actually helping you in your daily activities and overall well-being, is the best reason to own a pair of Birkenstocks. If your feet, legs or back have been suffering in low quality shoes for any length of time, wearing Birkenstocks will be a real treat for you, allowing them to take on their natural shape for the greatest comfort.

The high expertise in the manufacturing of these fine products combined with the very best materials such as smooth leather, suede leather, jute, microfibre, polyurethane and nubuck along with the fact that they are completely repairable, make them a sound investment in a person’s life and finances. They are even perfect for those wishing to live animal free, using man-made products.

These great items also have great orthotic support when it comes to open footwear and they are an appealing alternative to the usual orthotic shoes. They are available in two different widths to fit the needs of all people. The latex and cork are molded precisely to create the most ecological home for your feet when shoes are needed.

Although there was a time these shoes were well known and used among the hippie culture, this company has come a long way in developing their reputation as one that is accepted on all levels of society.

Birkenstock: Quality Footwear for Everyone

Birkenstock has been synonymous with quality footwear since 1774. Made in Germany, these clogs, sandals, and shoes are designed to support your feet, and provide absolute comfort throughout the entire day.

Birkenstock Milano

There are several reasons why Birkenstocks outlast the competition. One of them is the traditional styles which continue to be popular while fads come and go. Leather never goes out of fashion, nor does the virtue of a simple shade of brown or black. If they are well cared for, leather sandals will keep a pair of feet healthy and well supported for many summers.

It is important not to overlook the footbed and what sets one product apart from another. In the case of Birkenstocks, there is shock absorption to protect foot and ankle joints. The heel is deep for comfort and traction.Another reason that Birkenstock sandals are so enduring is that they support the arch of a foot without the addition of insoles. There are three types of arch support available: soft, moderate, and high arch support. With width selections to choose from as well and lots of toe room, many consumers with unusually shaped feet will still find the ideal shoe if they peruse the Birkenstock website.

For the teen—or even adult—who prefers bright colors, a number of new shades have been added over the years. They include anemone, silver pine, and picante. Some are available in patent or soft leather. Others are the shades of suede footwear.

Birkenstock Boston ClogOne important feature of the Birkenstock sandal is that even thongs are adjustable. Numerous designs have a buckle which means that, if feet swell because of heat or health issues, a customer’s shoes can adapt, remaining comfortable and practical. There is typically at least one buckle on a pair of open-toed sandals. Sandal varieties include open and closed backs, ankle straps (for men women & children), and two-strap styles. Clogs are another matter: some have no buckles at all, just a soft enclosure at the front and an open back. Others provide buckle adjustment across the top, while the t-strap is suggestive of old-fashioned girls’ shoes.

Recently, Birkenstock branched out to create several lines of shoes which are fully enclosed. They are laced-up at the front and feature minimal stitching. Men will find them to be light yet durable with good traction.

While the quality of Birkenstocks is critical, another reason consumers choose their products is because of their dedication to green initiatives. For instance, they make their cork soles out of recycled materials from the wine industry. Leftover materials are then recycled for other uses. Birkenstock footwear can be repaired. If a buckle comes loose or rusty but the rest of the shoe is in good shape, take it to a local retailer for repair. The company also suggests ways to treat and clean specific materials such as cork, Nubuck leather, and suede so that they will last many years.

Does the Ball of Your Foot Hurt?

If you’re suffering from Metatarsalgia (Ball of Foot Pain) and want to gain pain relief, look for shoes with good metatarsal support. Before going on it might be good to first understand a little more about metatarsal pain. Typically, if you have pain in the ball of your foot you’re suffering from Metatarsalgia. Usually the pain is caused from inflammation. To relieve the pain you need to address the cause of the inflammation. (For an in-depth explanation of Metatarsalgia, Click Here.)

Metatarsal Arch on Birkenstock Footbed

The first thought most people have is to get insoles with extra soft padding. Unfortunately this approach does not address the structural issues that cause the pain. The more correct approach is to make sure your insole (or footbed) has good metatarsal support. This may seem, or feel, like the wrong approach.

A footbed with good metatarsal support will at first feel like there is a golf ball under the ball of your foot. The actual size of the arch support is not huge (see images of Birkenstock footbed) but the impact is great. It will take a while for your feet to adapt and for the arches to regain its proper positioning. As the arches get back to where they need to be, the inflammation and the pain will subside.

Relieving metatarsal pain is not a part-time task. You have to make sure your metatarsal arch is supported all of the time. Going barefoot or wearing footwear without support will extend your recovery period.
