Prolong the life of your Birkenstocks by following our care instructions:

  • Trying on a new pair: Follow our size guide to ensure you’re wearing the correct size.

  • Breaking in a new pair: Allow your feet to adjust to your new shoes by limiting wear to just a few hours the first five to six times.

  • Air footbeds regularly: Airing the footbeds prevents the build-up of odours caused by excess moisture.

  • Don’t immerse cork models in water: Water can damage cork-based sandals/shoes and dissolve the glue/sealant.

  • Avoid extreme heat: Heat exposure can damage Birkenstocks. Avoid leaving them in the car or direct sunlight, and keep away from radiators and fireplaces.

  • Repair your shoes: Over time, Birkenstock footwear may require repair due to general wear. Read more about repairs.>

Measuring Tips

We recommend using a pencil or a ballpoint pen.

A thick pen can distort the result.

It’s best to measure your feet in the evening as they may expand during the day.
