The success of BIRKENSTOCK is rooted in its commitment to the art of making orthopedically inspired shoes. Over the centuries, it has built up a wealth of unparalleled experience that it has passed down from one generation to the next, with each generation cultivating and further expanding this knowledge.
It all started in 1774 when Johann Adam Birkenstock was listed in the church archives of Langen-Bergheim, as a ‘subject and Cobbler.’ Today Birkenstock are sold in more than 90 countries around the world and stand for excellent comfort, high functionality and extraordinary quality.

They literally do good. So, they stand out from the flood of cheap products that dominate large parts of the consumer world today.
