Classic design and fit. We’ll have these in Toffee (shown) and Licorice.

As is the case with most things that have, classic/functional designs, and durable construction, Birkenstocks really never left. We are seeing them trend up. Adding a softer footbed this year only adds to their appeal.

Incase you weren’t a sandal wearer when they were at the pinnacle of sandal wear, here are some features.

  • Cork Footbed- this molds itself to the shape of the bottom of your foot the more you wear them. That means at first, they may not feel comfortable, Fear not, after the “break in period” they literally become you. Cork is also a sustainable product, once harvested the tree re-grows more layers.
  • Leather- not all of the styles are constructed of leather, some have synthetic uppers. Though most of the styles have a leather liner directly under your feet.
  • Birkenstocks can be re-soled in many cases, extending the life/value of your sandals even further. Locally, Pendergrass Family Shoe Repair, in Knoxville, can take cars of most repairs
  • Orthopedic benefits- since the footbed molds to your particular foot, many podiatrists recommend them for supportive sandals.

KEEN Summer time adventure sandals are perfect for fall too!
