Founded by shoemaker Johann Adam Birkenstock in 1774, Langen-Bergheim, Germany, Birkenstock footwear now dominates the men’s sandals and mules market with their innovative creations. However, it took a few generations for the company to start making a significant impact on the industry, but when Konrad Birkenstock began manufacturing flexible insoles in the 1890’s people started to take notice. At the break of the 20th Century, Konrad introduced contoured arch support into the footwear and this was the true inception of the Birkenstock “footbed” that we recognise today.
The success of these innovative footbeds led to the Birkenstock brand opening a new factory in Friedburg to cater for the high demand. Even doctors and health professionals promoted the benefits of the anatomically designed sandals, with physicians even teaching Carl Birkenstocks training courses. The comfort of men’s Birkenstock Sandals and Mules relies on specially designed insoles that are specifically shaped to conform to the anatomical shape of the foot. Recessed heel cups maintain the wearer's natural cushioning on the calcaneus and arched supports provide alignment and stability.
Early in 2021, LVMH acquired a majority stake in Birkenstock breathing new life into the company and we’re excited to see what Birkenstock for men has in store next.
