Okay, Birkenstocks are the most classic of the classic when it comes to slides and sandals. Not only have we always been in support of stocks and socks, we always will be. Since 1774, Birkenstock has made little milestones on their manufacturing timeline- one of which being the development of their signature and highly recognized footbed. Yes, you know the one. If you've never owned any, we highly recommend you start. Come in and try your best fit, because once you choose the perfect ones, they mold to your feet like no other...forever. Birkenstock now celebrates 50 years in the US, and less than a year at Interwoven :') The manufacturing of their products is retained in Germany to this day.
