Birkenstock footwear has been around for many decades now, and yet they’re still one of the most popular types of footwear today. You can see people wearing and loving their fashionable Birkenstocks in our hometown of Christchurch and all over the world.

Once you wear your own, you’ll see why they’ve remained incredibly popular for many years. They’re known for their comfort, support, durability and straightforward yet stylish aesthetics.

Their versatility makes them ideal for many occasions and perfect for countless outfits.

Why New Zealanders Love Birkenstock

These popular sandals have a plethora of advantages that make them ideal for any New Zealander who values practicality and style. Birkenstocks are so beloved because:

They’re So Incredibly Comfortable. One of the most important qualities of any kind of footwear is comfort. So, it’s no surprise that one of the most loved qualities of Birkenstocks is that they are so very comfortable.

Once they’re properly broken in, your Birkenstocks will give you a level of comfort and support that’s simply divine. People can travel around Christchurch with style and ease when they have the right pair of sandals.

Their comfort comes from their amazing design. The cork footbed of Birkenstocks will contour to the shape of your specific feet, providing you with tailored support and cushioning that’s shaped just for you. Of course, you’ll need to take some time to break in your new pair of Birkenstocks so that the footbed adapts to your feet.

Many Birkenstocks also have adjustable straps. So you can adjust the individual straps to fit your feet better.

Support. The unique footbed of Birkenstocks provides their wearers with good arch support. Many New Zealand cities like Christchurch have heaps of wonderful places to see and go, so you’ll want good supportive footwear if you want to have a nice time walking around.

Their support can also help people with foot-related health conditions, such as flat feet or plantar fasciitis. For this reason, Birkenstocks are a good choice for people with certain conditions who are looking for supportive footwear. They can provide people with the personalised support and comfort that other shoes simply cannot.

Durability. Birkenstocks are made from high-quality materials, so they are built to last. Once you have your favourite pair of Birkenstocks, you can maintain them and keep them in good condition to use them for years.

Keeping your Birkenstocks in good condition is relatively simple. The cork footbed of these sandals is naturally water-resistant and can be easily cleaned. The straps and other parts of Birkenstocks are also durable and sturdy and have their own care requirements.

If your pair requires more complex care, such as replacing the soles of your sandals, you should take them to a professional to have them professionally repaired. For instance, Church Corner Shoe And Bag Repairs is a great Christchurch repairer that you can take your Birkenstocks to.

Their stability and durability mean that they can be worn for a variety of fun activities. From everyday wear to hiking, you can wear your best pair of Birkenstocks nearly all the time.

Style. Of course, Birkenstocks are also loved due to their infallible style. These sandals are available in a variety of colours and designs. You’ll certainly find a pair (or pairs) that fit your taste.

Their versatility means that Birkenstocks can be dressed up or down for any place in Christchurch. They’re perfect for daily wear, regardless of if you’re taking care of errands or heading to a gathering.

How To Make The Most Out Of Your Birkenstocks

Clearly, Birkenstocks are a fantastic choice for people who want comfortable, supportive and aesthetically-pleasing footwear. They’re an amazing choice for so many different reasons.

But you should know that there are certain things you can do to make your Birkenstocks last longer and stay beautiful for many years. Treating your footwear carelessly, regardless of its brand or materials, will cause it to break down quicker.

So, to make the most out of your own Birkenstocks, be sure that you do the following:

  • Break Them In Slowly. Birkenstocks are made from natural materials, so they need to be broken in slowly. Have some patience, and know that your hard work will be worth it. Start by wearing a new pair for short periods of time, and gradually increase the amount of time you wear them. They might feel awkward at first, but they’ll fit like a dream when they’re fully broken in.
  • Store Them Properly. Store them in a cool, dry place when you're not wearing them. This will help to prevent them from cracking or warping.
  • Take Care Of Them Correctly. Avoid using harsh cleaning chemicals or strong cleaning products, as these can damage the materials. Make sure you know the specific materials that your Birkenstocks use so that you know how to properly care for them, as using the wrong cleaning methods on the wrong materials can result in unintended damage. You may want to look for a good Christchurch shoe repairer, like the one we mentioned earlier, before you purchase your pair if you want it to last a very long time.
