Beyond the Sandal: These Fab 15 Will Make You Rethink Birkenstocks

The words Birkenstock and sandals go together like PB & J. It stands to reason after all, they’ve been making amazing sandals for over a hundred years.

So how shocking is it then that this top-tier brand makes more than sandals? A whole lot more in fact. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. With all that great knowledge and craftsmanship that goes into creating one of the world’s best footwear, why would they limit themselves to just one type of shoe.

Which is why our Editors are moving away from the sandal, and showcasing to you fifteen fabulous Birkenstocks you’re going to want right now, with not a sandal in sight.

Starting with what could be the most perfect minimalist white sneaker you’ll ever own. The Bend Low combines the classic, lace-up style of a sneak with the brand’s premium Birkenstock support, which includes their original contoured footbed that grounds each pair in custom comfort, shaping to your feet with wear to give you all-day support.

Don’t get us wrong, we love our Bostons, but sometimes we’re craving a little more of a ‘proper’ shoe. That’s where the London comes in. Crafted in the same style as the classic Boston, these lovelies come in a full shoe silhouette, making them an equally chic alternative.

Looking for something that’s comfortable enough to be a slipper, but pretty enough to wear around town? The Zermatt clog is made from super soft premium suede and an anatomically shaped cork-latex footbed that cradles you in comfort, while the grippy, natural rubber sole makes it perfect for walking the pavement. All this and it comes in this pretty lilac color that just begs to be showed off.

Calling all Croc lovers, meet the new Birki Air 2.0. It has all the cushy comfort and easy on/off design you love, but with some major upgrades, including dirt and stain-resistant poly that breathes and, big bonus – you can pop them in your regular wash cycle (unlike the other guys who can only run in colder water temperatures due to their material which can warp and/or shrink in higher temps).
