Since 1774, Birkenstock has been thinking about how they can make life more beautiful and more enjoyable to their customers with good shoes that suit any situation they may encounter. The high quality products offered by Birkenstock are a reasonable alternative for those who value quality and functionality. The brand has its products manufactured in Germany, on production sites giving way to manual work. Each sandal is the subject of 17 stages of work. The Birkenstock models are the result of 100 hand-made gestures. Closed shoes are made in Portuguese factories that respect the centuries-old principles of traditional craftsmanship. As for the selection of the materials used (cork, natural latex, copper, brass, wool felt and premium leather) as for their transformation, Birkenstock does not compromise. Raw materials come from sustainable resources. Whenever the natural environment allows it, the house gets them in Europe.
