THE ORIGINAL BIRKENSTOCK FOOTBED
The heart of all models is the original BIRKENSTOCK footbed. The construction, which has been thought out to the smallest detail and makes it feel like you're standing in sand, helps your feet feel as comfortable as possible for hours on end. This supports health and promotes wellbeing.
1. Deep heel cupThe very deep molding in the heel area supports the foot tissue and holds the heel bone firmly in its natural position. This provides the foot with nearly as much support when it is in a sandal as when it is in a closed shoe.
2. Interior and exterior longitudinal arch supportsThe arch supports that run alongside the sides of the footbed surround the tarsal bones inside and out. This gives the foot the stability it needs when it takes a step.
3. Transverse arch supportThe support that runs through the middle of the footbed stabilizes the metatarsal bone. In this way, the transverse arch support helps ensure that the foot has a naturally straight and solid stance.
4. Toe gripThere are raised indentations at the front of the footbed near the toes. Thanks to the toe grip the toes remain loose and spread out in their natural position. The indentations also support the natural rolling motion of the toes.
5. Footbed edgeThe footbed is drawn up especially high at the front. As a result, the high footbed edge protects the toes during the rolling motion of the foot.
THE ORIGINAL BIRKENSTOCK FOOTBEDThe original BIRKENSTOCK footbed is a shock absorption system and an exercise machine at the same time. With its anatomical moldings, it supports and relieves pressure on your feet when you walk. This provides relief for your feet, joints and back. It gives your feet firm support and supports the natural tissue. At the same time, it exercises your leg muscles.
