Birkenstock Sandal offer deep footbed in two different widths: a regular width for normal feet and a narrow width for especially slender feet. In order to create a perfect fit, the upper sections are aligned with the width of the respective deep footbed. Combined with the adjustability provided by the straps, this creates a “tailored shoe” that fits your foot perfectly.
"When buying your preferred Birkenstock style, make sure that there are a few mm space in the heel and in front of the toes. Your toes need this space when walking, in order to move freely with each step."
Compared to other sandals, walking in Birkenstock fitness sandals is surprisingly different, since you can instantly feel the increased activity in your muscles. The interaction between the straps and the footbed triggers a gripping reflex in the foot with every step. When walking, the continuous switch between tensing your muscles and relaxing will exercise your feet and legs as well as promote circulation. Moreover, the tissue is tightened and the soles of the feet are strengthened in their role as “shock absorbers”.
All of these aspects work together to ensure a natural, correct positioning of the foot, improved posture in the entire body and greater overall well-being.
"The flexible cork and latex footbed of the fitness sandal supports the foot’s natural rolling movement. This exercises and strengthens the muscles in the foot and calf – step by step."

This ensures a cushioned yet firm foundation for immediate comfort and full arch support, built on the most solid foundation in footwear.
3. HIGH ARCH
Based on our traditional footbed the medial arch is higher, the metatarsal arch is higher, and the heel cup is deeper. It all adds up to increased arch support and stability.
