Birkenstocks are the original. The classic quintessential sandal. In 1968, Margot Frasier first introduced Birkenstock sandals to America, and ever since they've been the benchmark for comfortable footwear. Birkenstocks feature contoured footbeds that distribute weight evenly, neutral heels for better posture, and plenty of room for toe-wiggling freedom. Today, Birkenstock makes more than 400 styles of sandals, shoes and clogs. Each is still built around Birkenstock's legendary footbed. Still hand-stitched. Still German-made. Enjoy our selection of Birkenstock sandals, shoes and clogs.
There is a type of style that stays just that...a sandal one either likes or not. I am drawn to the Birkenstock shoe. I have these in every color and am now buying the newer styles too. BUT the classic Birkie is one that I enjoy. I have owned Birkies for years and these wear well. I do like the brown suede color too. Although I now need to close the buckles at the smallest notch so my next pair I might need to buy the narrow width.

Feels true to size,
Feels true to width,
I am 77 years old. I do not have to worry about tripping or stumbling in these, as my foot bed is solid and there is a lot of support. In the past, I found the leather was too stiff in some styles, but now I stick to suede, and I couldn't ask for a better shoe.
