Named after their German shoemaker inventor, Birkenstock created the first flexible deep bedded cork shoes. Famed for their comfortable fit and with a distinct design, Birkenstocks have become the go-to brand for feet that need some guaranteed comfort.
Eco friendly in both their design and manufacturing process, Birkenstock have certainly got that feel good vibe. With a sense of the laid back 1960s fashion about them, they're the perfect shoes for festivals, picnics and garden parties. Wear a pair of the classic two strap Birkenstock women's mules with some turn-up jeans for a hippy chick look, or go for free-flowing fashion with a pair of Birkenstock women's sandals and a boho maxi skirt. Birkenstock bring a dose of earthy chic to menswear too. Wear your slip-ons with long turn-up shorts and a Breton stripe top for a French riviera feel.
Every staple wardrobe needs a classic pair of Birkenstocks, but look to Birkenstock's new designs for some variation on the originals. Sandals in natural colours will match the earthy vibe of the brand, but choose something brighter for a more statement look. Kids can even get in on the action, with Birkenstock's kids' flip flops from Birkenstock. They can be matched with everything from party dresses and summer leggings, to jeans, shorts and swimwear. Choose your kids' Birkenstocks in metallics or glitter colours to give their footwear an injection of fun.
