Birkenstock Women's Sandals and Flip-flops
The Birkenstock brand from Germany dates back for centuries and has a strong history. The first to provide contoured arch support in shoes, the company continues to deliver comfortable, high-quality footwear. When wearing Birkenstock sandals or flip-flops, your feet do not get tired, and you can go on for the entire day.Birkenstock Footbed
The Birkenstock footbed is the heart of its sandals and flip-flops. The company introduced the anatomically shaped insole in the 1930's, thus inventing the contoured footbed that now many companies try to make. A raised toe bar encourages the natural gripping motion of the feet, while Birkenstock footbed also provides more toe room. The contoured footbed, with its four arches, ensures proper posture and even weight distribution, while your heels sink comfortably into the deep heel cup. A soft suede footbed liner ensures that your feet stay dry, and two layers of jute fibers wick away moisture and improve the shoe's strength.Materials
Birkenstock makes use of premium materials from sustainable sources to create its superior footwear. The footbed consists of cork, which is the outer bark of cork oak that re-grows every 7-10 years once harvested, as well as natural latex from rubber trees and moisture-wicking jute. The upper could be either from natural or synthetic leather. Birkenstock does not treat natural leather, so it comes as it is. Patent leather has a plastic or paint coat to ensure its shine. Other materials that Birkenstock uses include suede, nubuck, felt, wool felt, and array of special synthetic blends like Birko-Flor, Birko felt nubuck, and Birko felt.Sandals
Birkenstock makes plenty of women's sandals. You can find convenient, one-strap sandals or two-strap sandals that feel more secure when you wear them. Thong sandals add some elegance by separating the big toe from the rest. For the securest fit, pick up a pair of Birkenstock ankle-strap sandals or flip-flops for women, which include a convenient back-strap for holding the shoe in place. Sandals from the Madrid Essentials and Arizona Essentials collection are from waterproof EVA material.Flip-flops
Birkenstock women's flip-flops are basically single-strap sandals. You can distinguish them from other single-strap sandals because they are thong sandals, which you hold onto your foot through a strap that slips between your toes.
