Durable, reliable and incredibly comfortable, there’s a reason why Birkenstocks have been a popular type of sandal since 1774… yep, that’s almost 250 years of high quality sandal making. Birkenstocks come in a variety of colours, styles and materials. But their main attribute, which separated them from the sandals of the time in the 18th Century, is the arched sole which supports and contours the foot. This gives Birkenstocks wearers supreme comfort, making them one of the most comfy shoes styles for summer.
