Birkenstock have roots dating back nearly 250 years, with Johann Adam Birkenstock registering as a shoemaker in 1774. His grandson continued his legacy through two specialist footwear stores that produced contoured insoles.
These days however, Birkenstock have become something of a cult brand, using nature to create footwear that enhances the foot’s natural function whilst making sandals in the most environmentally friendly way possible. The Boston is the original Birkenstock clog, having been around for over 35 years, it is an alternative to over-the-foot style sandals. These sandal-shoe hybrids feature a single galvanised buckle strap closure, a distinctive covered toe, together with luxury leather lining for a comfortable feel, cork footbed with textured grip and shock absorbing EVA sole.
