We offer our original footbed in two widths: Regular and Narrow

This is to accomodate for the differences in shape between individual's feet and to provide optimum support and comfort.

Find your size by following the steps below: 

STEP 1: MEASURE YOUR FEET
You need two A4 sheets of paper, a pencil and a ruler.

Place the sheets of paper on the floor. Stand straight on the paper with your heels against the wall.

Measure the width: with the help of a pencil, mark the outermost points at the left and right side of the balls of your feet.

Measure the length: mark the longest toe of each foot.

We recommend using a pencil or a ballpoint pen.
A thick pen can distort the result.

STEP 2: ENTER YOUR MEASUREMENTS IN OUR SIZE CALCULATOR

STEP 3: GOT YOUR BIRKS? CHECK YOUR FIT!

Optimum space at the heel

There should be a space of approx. 5 mm between the toes and the footbed edge.

Optimum space at the toes

There should be a space of approx. 5 mm between the toes and the footbed edge.

If your toes touch the edge of the footbed or if they jut out over it, the sandal is too small.

If there’s too much space at the toes and the heel, the sandal is too big.

If the balls of the feet or the toes jut out over the edge at the sides, the sandal is too narrow.

Optimum fit of lower strap

Adjust the lower strap so that there is space of approx. 5 mm between the strap and the arch of the foot.

Optimum fit of upper strap

There should be space of approx. 5 mm between the upper strap and the arch of the foot.

Adjust straps

Walk a few steps. Should the straps be too tight or too loose, readjust them. The straps at the left and at the right foot do not necessarily have to be adjusted the same way. Check your straps again after a few days, as the upper can stretch a little over time.


Our recommendation: don’t wear new sandals longer than a few hours at a time to break them in slowly.
