The BIRKENSTOCK US
The BIRKENSTOCK footbed mirrors the anatomy of the foot so that bodyweight is distributed in a natural and balanced way across the entire sole of the foot. This way the foot receives perfect support in its biomechanical rolling motion. We offer some styles with integrated soft-footbed for very sensitive feet. The development of this footbed has taken BIRKENSTOCK years of thorough and intensive work. An additional layer of foamed natural rubber is placed in between the flexible cork-latex mix which is surrounded by durable natural jute and the suede leather liner. This layer features an extremly high degree of rebound capacity which permits long-lasting cushioning.
- 01 Suede leather liner:
The suede leather liner absorbs moisture and provides a good climate all around the foot.
- 02 Foam insert:
The mark of distinction of the soft-footbed, the anatomically mouldes foam insert, consists of millions of tiny air bubbles which greatly ease walking and standing.
- 03 2nd jute layer:
The second jute layer is placed around the edge of the footbed. This increases flexibility of the footbed and greatly influences the longevity of the soft-footbed. This layer consists of thick, absorbent woven jute which picks up moisture.
- 04 Cork-latex footbed:
The cork-latex footbed consists of a special mix of finest natural cork and highest quality natural latex. This is the secret of our renowned very light and highly flexible BIRKENSTOCK footbed.
- 05 1st jute layer:
The first jute layer stabilises the footbed.
- 06 Bottom sole:
The bottom sole consists of the elastic and long-lasting material EVA. It is abrasion-resistant and shock absorbing.
