Headquartered in Vettelschoss/Rhineland-Palatinate, Birkenstock Orthopädie GmbH & Co. KG has a rich history of tradition dating back to 1774. The inventor of the flexible deep cork footbed and the blue footbed develops and markets high-quality sandals, shoes, foot care products and shoe care products. Birkenstock manufactures exclusively in Germany and sells its current portfolio of around 250 products in more than 80 countries across the globe.
The Birkenstock philosophy is based on the natural function of the foot, and the footbed is designed to mirror the shape of a healthy foot and to give a feeling of walking barefoot. Function, quality, and, particularly, comfort are Birkenstock benchmarks, and all products are made to meet these high standards.
