Questions and answers about Birkenstock
Genuine Birkenstock are recognisable by the logo on the buckles, rivets and soles of the shoe. Aside from this, the buckles do not become discoloured and the sole features a bone-pattern. Does your footwear tick all these boxes? If not, then you likely have a pair of fake Birkenstocks.
In general Birkenstock range from normal to on the large side. We recommend ordering your own size or one size smaller. If in doubt, use our handy Birkenstock size chart to help you find the right size for you.
No, Birkenstock are not waterproof. Should your Birkenstock shoes become soaked with water, this may cause damage to the footbed. If your Birkenstock do manage to get wet, the best thing to do is hang them out to dry.
Your best bet is to start by wearing your new Birkenstock in at home. Start with 1 or 2 hours and slowly increase the time until you reach a point where you can wear them comfortably all day.
Mix enough baking soda with water until you get a thick paste and spread this over the entire footbed of your Birkenstock. Wipe away the excess paste with a wet cloth and then dry the shoes as much as possible with a dry cloth.
