Just what I needed
Florida Soft Footbed Review:
I've been wearing Birkenstocks on and off since 1982. Need the arch support.
Excellent shoe at a great price !
London Review:
I absolutely love my Birkenstock London's! These shoes are not only comfortable but look great at the same time. The quality and craftsmanship is superior in my opinion. If I could only were one shoe, this is the one. I also must say my experience dealing with Oneline shoes customer service dept. was outstanding......A+++++++
I would buy these shoes again and again!!
London Review:
Just arrived, wore them to work that night! I'm a nurse working 12 hour shifts. No need to break them. Extremely comfortable. Everybody needs a pair. Will be buying the sandlals for summer!
I waited a long time to get these and I love them.
Gizeh Birko-Flor™ Review:
I have only ever owned one other pair of birks in my life and that was at 18. I ordered wide way back then and they were always too wide for me which is why I knew to order regular this time. I wear these shoes almost everyday, to work, and usually switch out to the hush puppies boots if my feet get cold. I take my birks off when I get home and put a different pair of sandals on because I don't want to get the birks funky yet or dirty.
Great buy
Arizona Review:
Great shoes. My second pair and will buy again

About Birkenstock

The Birkenstock clogs and sandals that are fashion and comfort staples today have a history that dates back to 1774, when Johann Adam Birkenstock is registered in a small German village's church archives as "subject and shoemaker."

In 1897, Johann's grandson, Konrad Birkenstock, theorized that curved shoes would be more comfortable than flat shoes. He developed the first contoured insole. In 1902, Konrad developed the first flexible arch support, to be inserted in factory-made Birkenstock shoes. In 1964, Konrad's grandson, Karl Birkenstock, integrated contoured arch support directly into the footbed, and the Birkenstock sandal was born.

Birkenstock USA began in 1966, when founder Margot Fraser visited Germany. Seeking relief from uncomfortable shoes and the pain of walking all day on hard pavement, she visited a spa, where someone suggested that she try Birkenstocks. Her relief was immediate, and within months of returning home to California and continuing to wear her Birkenstocks, Margot's chronic foot pain vanished. Convinced of the health benefits of Birkenstock sandals, she started a distribution business selling them.

In 1973, Birkenstock Arizona sandals were introduced. That iconic two-strap sandal has been re-invented in a variety of color and material combinations, and remains as comfortable as it ever was. Birkenstock Boston clogs also enjoy a long history; it was introduced in 1977.

Now, Birkenstock USA is 100% employee-owned, and continues to celebrate comfort with quality products that are unique, timeless and respectful of the world around us.
