BIRKENSTOCK Footwear is made in European sizes

Picking the right size for your BIRKENSTOCK sandals:

  • Stand with the heel to a wall and put a measuring tape under your feet
  • Read off the measured foot length in millimeters before your longest toe
  • If you are between two sizes, choose the next higher, because feet are minimally greater under load
  • You can also find your BIRKENSTOCK size by adding 31 to your US women's shoes size or 33 to your US men's shoe size

Adjusting your BIRKENSTOCK sandals:

  • Before trying them on, put one hand under the toe and one under the heel, then flex the footbed a few times. This will initiate the break in period and will your help your new sandals feel comfy sooner.
  • Open all straps and step into the footbed. Close the straps comfortably, leaving enough space to allow your feet the freedom of movement. Exhale and enjoy.

Wearing your BIRKENSTOCK sandals:

  • For the first five or six times you wear your new footwear, limit the time to just a few hours. This allows your feet and body to gradually get used to the contoured arch support as well as the straps and buckles.
