Birkenstock Sandals


Birkenstock Sandals

The Birkenstock family of Germany created their first shoe business in 1774, but only found international popularity after the shoes were imported to America by a foot-sore travelling housewife!

The sandal's soft insole resembles a footprint and moulds to the foot.

Popular with tree-huggers in the 1970s, they lost their footing a bit during the eighties but came back to prominence in 1992.
