SIZING:

How do I know which size to order?

By locating your U.S. size on our sizing charts , you can see your European size equivalent in the center column.


How do I know which width to order?

When choosing your size on our cork footbed sandals and shoes:

“R” = “Regular” Width footbed which fits a Medium to Wide width foot.

“N” = “Narrow” Width footbed which fits a Narrow to Medium foot.

Other footwear will come in one width. Please see the width and fit in the product description.

How can I tell if the footwear fits properly?

For Cork Footbed Type Footwear:

Sandals: Allow for about 1/8” - ¼” of space between the end of your toes and the front rim of the sandal. Your heel should sit comfortably in the heel cup. Before trying your sandals on, “flex” the sandal inwards first by bending the ball of the foot area towards the heel area (like folding in ½). This stimulates the comfort and flexibility of the footbed and sole.

For Shoes:

While standing in the shoe allow about a thumbnails width of space between your toes and the end of the shoe. If your toes are pushing on the front of the shoe when you’re walking, the shoes are too short. If the shoe’s upper leather creases uncomfortably over the tips of your toes when walking, they are too long.

For Dansko and Other Clog Style Footwear:

Open back clogs should fit as near to the exact size of your foot as possible. When walking, it’s OK if your toes touch the front of the clog just slightly. Your heel should have less than ¼” of space in the back.

Closed back clogs will fit much the same way. Bear in mind that the covered back of a clog is designed to “cover” your foot only – Not to hug it or fit snuggly as in conventional footwear. Therefore expect some slippage.

SHIPPING:

What methods of shipping do you use?

We use standard UPS Ground (United Parcel Service), FedX Ground (Federal Express) and USPS (United States Postal Service).

SHOE CARE & REPAIRS

How do I take care of my new shoes?

Shoe Care for Cork Footbed Sandals:

  • Avoid Excessive Heat: Do NOT leave your footwear in hot places such as cars, pool decks, near campfires etc. Extreme heat may shrink your soles! If this happens, don’t worry – they’re repairable!

  • Preserve the Cork Footbed: When the outside of the cork footbed no longer looks shiny; apply a thin coat of cork sealant to the surface to prevent drying and cracking. This will make a huge difference in the life of your footwear!

Clean & Protect the Uppers:

  • A Suede & Leather protector should be applied before your footwear is worn and after each cleaning. This creates a barrier against moisture, dirt and stains.

  • Clean & Condition your smooth leather with a high quality leather balm or lotion.

  • Suede and Nubuck is best cleaned using a shampoo or nubuck sanding block and brush.

  • Non Leather upper material such as Birko-Flor can usually be cleaned using a mild soap and water.

Clean & Deodorize Inside Linings:

  • When the insides of your shoes or sandals become soiled or smell, we recommend our Footbed Cleaner. Our Footbed Cleaner is a suede & leather shampoo especially formulated to clean and deodorize.

Replace Worn Soles:

  • Promptly have your shoes re-soled when the tread has worn smooth. This can help prevent more extensive repairs in the future.

Do you offer a shoe repair service?

We offer our customers the services of our Authorized Birkenstock Repair Department. Our services extend to other similar brands of footwear too!
