If your foot measures between two sizes, we recommend choosing the next size up, as feet expand slightly during the day.

FIRST STEPS: SIZE & WIDTH

MEASURING YOUR FEET

It’s really simple: Position your foot straight on the ground. First, measure your foot length from the heel to the longest toe. Then place your foot on the tape measure and measure the width of your foot at the widest point from the inner edge to the outer edge.

SELECT YOUR WIDTH

We offer our original footbed in two widths: regular and narrow. The regular width is suitable for normal to more robust feet and is indicated by the outlined foot symbol. The narrow width is suitable for narrow to slender feet and is indicated by the filled-in foot symbol.

WHY WE OFFER TWO WIDTHS
WHY WE OFFER TWO WIDTHS
It’s quite simple – everyone’s feet are different. That’s why we offer our original footbed in two widths: the regular width is for normal to more robust feet and the narrow width is for small to slender feet. This ensures that you get the maximum comfort out of your shoes. This is because the right fit keeps your feet in the proper position and as a result prevents pressure points, aching feet or even the severe misalignment of your feet.

THE NEXT STEP: HERE’S HOW YOU PROPERLY ADJUST YOUR BIRKENSTOCKS

FIRST, TAKE THEM OUT OF THE BOX

Your Birkenstocks have finally arrived? Take your new favourite pair out of the blue shoe box and open all the straps.

SLIDE YOUR FEET IN

Next, slide your feet into the footbed with the straps open. You’ll know you have the right fit if there’s a few millimetres of space at either end of your foot. Your feet should also comfortably fit within the shaped footbed and not come over the edges.

FASTEN THE STRAPS

Now you can fasten the straps: the straps should hug your feet without being too tight or leaving pressure marks. Make sure you don’t fasten the ankle strap too tight, otherwise your feet will slide too far forward.

ADJUST THE STRAPS

Test to see if the straps fit properly by walking a few steps. If the straps are too tight or loose, adjust them once more. You’ll know they fit perfectly when you have comfortable freedom of movement and there’s no friction between your feet and the edges of the footbed.

BREAK THEM IN PROPERLY


The last step is very important: new Birkenstocks just love to be broken in! We recommend not wearing the shoes for more than a few hours at first until you get used to the footbed. Then gradually wear them for a bit longer until you’re so comfortable in them you’ll never want to take them off again!
