What makes Birkenstock unique?
All Birkenstock shoe models are made from natural cork. This cork foundation provides a perfect balance of firm support and shock absorption making it a great shoe for rest days or everyday wear. Being that Birkenstock footwear is made out of cork, the footbed of the shoe actually forms to your foot, creating a unique and soft feel underfoot wear after wear. Not to mention, the suede lining of the shoe will help with moisture control and keeping a cool underfoot temperature. Birkenstocks are described as “Active Recovery Footwear” meaning that while traditional “recovery” footwear relies on added cushioning and a passive approach. Active recovery footwear is based on firm stable support designed to instigate the body’s adaptive response after running, help promote muscular benefits and reduce proneness to injury.

Why should runners get a pair?
To fully make their entrance into the world of running, Birkenstock released a new line of classic styles with EVA foam which is common in almost all running footwear and familiar to runners. Birkenstock distinguishes itself in this space by being firmer and lighter on cushion than traditional recovery footwear, making them a new concept for runners. The stiffness of these shoes has also been proven to provide enhanced arch support and relief to sufferers of Plantar Fasciitis.
