Birkenstock Joins The Scorpio Shoes Offering With Super Summer Sandals

How pleased are we to announce this?

Very!

Yes, at long last, Scorpio Shoes are proud to offer our customers the supportive, flexible and stylish range of sandals that are uniquely BIRKENSTOCK.

We have 2 new styles for the men, and 2 styles for women. But before we tell you all about them, and in case you know nothing at all about them, lets explain the basics behind the Birkenstock. What makes them so comfortable and why do they have such a huge following of loyal customers who repeatedly buy pair after pair after pair?

Breaking Down The Birkenstock

Birkenstocks, or “Birkis” as fans call them, are always made from high quality materials & unique construction to enduring aethetics and style along with difficult to beat and outlast levels of comfort. The concept behind the design of Birkenstock is easy to understand when you considers the ergonomics and design of our feet, and the mechanics of walking.

Breakdown Of The Birkenstock Footbed

Each and every contour and curve of a Birkenstock footbed is designed and located to stretch, flex and move with your foot. The muscles, bones and tendons of feet benefit from being free to move, resulting in improved circulation, increased flexibility and muscle strength, and contribute to better overall health.

1. Deep Heel Cup:- holds the heel securely and maintains the heel profile.
2. Cork Latex Footbed:- Extremely flexible with superb shock absorption. Providing uniquely high levels of comfort.
3. Suede leather cover:- Creates a healthy breathable micro-climate for the foot’s skin.
4. Cross support from the arch:- Maintains the foot’s arch shape allowing the arch’s natural tension to absorb impact and provide spring.
5. Toe gripper:- Encourages a natural roll movement of the foot from heel to toe.
6. Footbed Edging:- Deliberately elevated to protect the toes.
 

So what does all this mean? It means that whichever way you cut it, Birkenstocks are damned comfortable AND can actually promote the well being of the wearer. Excellent!

But, I hear you cry, what do they actually look like?
