  • Different Styles Of Birkenstocks

    Posted

    Birkenstocks have taken the world by storm, not just because they’re good for your feet and super comfortable, but they’re now a massive trend among celebrities, and younger generations.

    Unlike most sandals, the Birkenstock footbed is contoured to match the shape of a healthy foot, and designed to support the natural shape of the foot. We have many different styles to choose from, made of different materials, different footbeds, widths and colours, as well as our new Vegan style in the Arizona and Mayari.

    Below are the styles of Birkenstock we stock, to try and make your decision of which ones to get a little easier!

    ARIZONA

    Our most popular Birkenstock style is the Arizona. This unisex sandal has two adjustable straps that allow for a custom fit – also available in both regular and narrow widths. There is a variety of colours to choose from, including the smooth leather styles, metallic, oiled leather, and also the lightweight EVA.

    BOSTON

    This unisex classic clog slip on style comes in a smooth leather, suede leather and oiled leather and has a strap across the instep to create the perfect fit. We also stock this in both regular and narrow fit.

    FLORIDA

    A newer style we have recently added to our Summer collection, the women’s Florida is a three-strap Birkenstock slide to give that extra bit of security and even more of a custom fit, which we stock in the classic black in a regular fit and also a metallic style in a narrow fit.

    New style Florida has three straps instead of the usual two.

     

    GIZEH and RAMSES

    Gizeh is the women’s classic thong sandal which naturally surrounds the toes with its deep footbed. It has an adjustable strap, and we stock these in regular and narrow widths, with a variety of different styles, including the smooth leather, metallic, oiled leather, and the lightweight EVA plastic style.

    Gizeh in Silver can brighten up any outfit.

    Ramses is a unisex version of the thong, but with a thicker strap over the instep. We stock this in a regular fit in the stone colour.

     

    LONDON

    The London was one of Birkenstock’s first closed-toe styles, a clog with an adjustable buckle strap. It is made using the highest grade leather, between 2.8 and 3mm thick. We stock the London in the black oiled leather in both a narrow and regular fit.

    MAYARI

    Our second most popular style Birkenstock, the Mayari, is a multi-strap design, with an extra security cross-strap and toe loop for both comfort and style. It has two adjustable straps, and comes in the narrow and regular fit. Again, we have a range of colours to choose from, in smooth leather, oiled leather and a metallic finish.

    PROFI BIRKI

    Suitable for a variety of professions with its raised heel section, the Profi Birki provides the feet with both protection and grip. Popular in kitchens and restaurants, the smooth surface is oil, grease water and dirt resistant. Available in just the regular width, in a classic black.

     

    The Profi Birki can be worn in kitchens and restaurants.

    SUPER BIRKI

    Similar to the Profi Birki, the Super Birki is a slip on clog style with the same smooth surface, it just isn’t as deep, and doesn’t have the high back, nor is the sole completely non-slip. For this reason, it’s not recommended for professional use, but is ideal for domestic use such as in the garden or around the home.

     

    YARA

    Our latest addition is the Yara, which you may have seen celebrities wearing. They have that bohemian Byron Bay feel, with the wrap around ankle strap that is adjustable, as well as a secure toe loop and another buckle on the instep. We stock Yara in a regular fit, in the oiled leather Habana Brown.
