Birkenstocks have been around for a long time. They made their first pair of shoes almost 250 years ago and ever since they have been a very popular choice for those concerned about comfort, image and practicality. It is not by chance that Birkenstocks have stayed relevant for all of these years, here are some reasons why the brand has endured for so long, and is not going anywhere soon.
1. They’re extremely comfortable
If you’re going to be walking about all day, you want to make sure that the shoes you wear not only look good but that they are comfortable. Anyone who has ever worn a pair of Birkenstocks knows that these shoes are some of the best accessories to wear on your feet. A pair of shoes that does not fit well or provide the support you need can put your feet, ackles and back under a lot of strain and stress.
As Birkenstocks are designed to fit ergonomically and contour to the individuals foot shape, your feet experience support in all of the right places. For this reason, it is very common for those who need to be on their feet all day to choose Birkenstocks as there is nothing worse than ending a day with sore feet and back pain.
2. Often copied, never beaten
They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, is so, Birkenstocks should feel very flattered. Many shoe brands have attempted to copy their look and style, but they always fall short on what makes Birkenstocks such a popular choice. While competitors may have shoes that look a little like Birkenstocks, they are nowhere near as comfortable, or as pleasant to wear all day. It is a fine line to walk between comfort and support, only Birkenstocks seem to be able to manage this so well.
A lot of people will think of Birkenstocks as a pair of shoes that they wore in their carefree youth. Slipping on a pair of Birkenstocks can rekindle old memories and be not only be comfortable physically, but also emotionally. The best part is that Birkenstocks last a long time, so you will be able to keep the memory of special events and times in your life alive and well for many years to come by just popping on a pair of shoes.
4. The quality
Birkenstocks uses only the finest materials and a level of craftsmanship that doesn’t exist anymore with many other shoe brands. When you look at your other shoes, you probably know that they have a limited lifespan. You may even consider a lot of them disposable. Birkenstocks will stay in perfect condition for many years to come. This makes them not only a great looking comfortable shoe, but a great investment for the future.
5. They’re reliable
Have you ever had a flip flop fall apart when you were a good 20 minute walk away from home, or the laces on your sneakers break when the moment you arrive at work? One of the reasons that so many people love their Birkenstocks is that they can rely on them to not fall apart when they need them most. With proper care, your Birkenstocks will last you for years. If there was any doubt as to how good these shoes are, all you have to do is speak with someone who wears Birkenstocks.
