The Birkenstock family ('Birki' for short) has been crafting and supplying men, women, and children with high quality footwear. Their over 200 year old commitment to excellence has yet to fade and instead has led to many innovations in Birki footwear. Among their latest innovations is the Birki Antigua, a casual pair of footwear with precision foot bed for maximum comfort.
The Birki Difference
The Birki Antigua is designed with 'beach' in mind. Are you familiar with the phrase 'form follows function?' Well, this is exactly the concept behind the Birki Antigua and all other Birkenstock footwear designs.
Most footwear, if you notice, follow the whims of fashion even as fashion can sometimes go to such extremes that the results aren't wearable anymore. With the Birki Antigua, sandals remain sandals and best of all, they are wearable. The philosophy is simple: create shoes that a person can wear.
Resilience and Comfort
Comfort is the main theme of the Birki Antigua. And comfort in footwear must necessarily come from the part that cradles and supports your foot - the foot bed. The Birki Antigua's foot bed is made from cork and natural latex, ensuring maximum comfort and durability. Additionally, the foot bed is shaped like a healthy footprint so your feet are guided into the correct walking position.
Every pair of feet has different contours. Your feet have their own distinct shape and contours. To fit your feet with the footwear, Birkenstock created foot beds that have also have their own distinct curves. Think of the footwear as a mirror of your feet. They fit the distinct structures of your feet perfectly, ensuring proper support and even distribution of weight.
Another distinct characteristic of the Birki Antigua is a deep heel cup. Most shoes or sandals these days have flat designs that make it difficult for you to support your weight with the balls of your heels. The deeper heel cup design of the Birki Antigua helps make sure that the padding of your heel rests directly under your heel bone, where it can do the most good.
The foot bed of your Birki Antigua is lined with supple suede for protection and comfort. Soft and absorbent, you can walk miles and miles of beaches with the Birki without worrying about getting calluses on your sole. To wick moisture away from your foot, there are jute fibers inserted beneath the foot bed itself.
Firm Walking Surface
Footwear is similar to a mattress. You might like soft mattresses at first, because they feel great and feel really comfortable. But after some time you realize that they don't do any good to your back or hips. In fact, the longer you linger on a soft mattress, the worse it's going to be for your posture.
Now, the same thing is true with footwear. Soft foot beds will feel great at first, but you'll do a lot better with the firm support.
