Technical Features
Birkenstock Technical Features

The Birkenstock Footbed
Birkenstock footbeds are made of cork and natural latex, and contoured in the shape of a healthy foot. These contours ensure proper weight distribution with raised arches to help support the foot’s natural shape and structure. The toe bar allows the toes to grip and flex, stimulating circulation, exercising the leg, and helping to maintain balance. The deep heel cup keeps the foot’s natural padding under the heel to provide stability. As a result of these factors, the correct bones bear the weight of the body to keep the spine and legs in alignment.

Firm Support For Your Feet
It would make sense to think that a softer and more “cushiony” shoe would be more comfortable. But in fact, the Birkenstock concept of comfort is based on firm, orthopedically correct support. As with a quality mattress, feet require solid support and correct positioning providing maximum comfort and health. Our footbed features proper arch support, a deep heel cup, and adequate room in the toe area – all to help distribute weight evenly for the entire foot. The result is improved posture and balance for greater comfort when walking.

Our Contoured Footbed Encourages Foot Health
The Birkenstock footbed is made of resilient cork/latex and is shaped to create a healthy walking environment for your feet. Additionally, the cork/latex blend is pliable and reacts to natural body warmth. Therefore, over time, the footbed yields to the characteristics of an individual foot. Many long-term Birkenstock wearers find that the longer you wear them, the more comfortable they become. The shape of a Birkenstock follows the contours of a healthy foot.

Love the Gizeh!
I've owned lots of styles of Birkenstocks over the years but this is my first pair of Gizehs. I love the fit and they are less bulky looking than other styles. They come in so many fun colors. I want them all!

Birks rock!
This is a fabulous sandal! I've been wearing Birkenstocks for almost 40 years and these have the best arch support of any I've worn. I have a very narrow foot but the strap adjusts for a perfect fit, having gone down one full size per the advise of Planet Shoes. The Pool Patent is a gorgeous and cheery color! The thong strap is neither hard nor stiff and would only be a problem if you can't tolerate the style. If you're ready to keep your feet cool and comfortable, this is the sandal for you!

not sure I understand the term birko-flor, as opposed to a reg birkenstock footbed. Is there a difference? And since I require a soft footbed, is this the same or comparable? thanks!

Hi Carol, Birko-Flor actually refers to the upper material of the shoe. Birkfo-Flor is a faux leather material. The Birkenstock Gizeh Birkoflor is a regular footbed as opposed to the soft footbed. The difference between the two is the soft footbed features an additional layer of cushioning rather than the basic footbed.
