There are many sources of discount Birkenstocks, however to
find them you may need to look around a little in your area.
Even if Birkenstocks are about the best value for your shoe
money, they can be a little expensive, especially if you're
outfitting the whole family.
There are three simple ways that you can find Birkenstocks at
reduced prices. You can look at retailers of Birkenstocks for
sales on last year's models, you can find overstock or
liquidation style stores, or shop online and take advantage of
reduced costs available online (often with rebates and sales
that are only available online).
Another reasonably good place to check for reduced prices on
Birkenstocks is through eBay. Many people sell Birkenstocks
through online auctions, many at considerably reduced prices
from retail, even on current year models. Since eBayers don't
have to spend money on setting up their own retail presence,
they are able to offer cheaper and discounted prices on
Birkenstock sandals or any other footwear by Birkenstock. Just
be sure to use the eBay that is closest to you to save on
Birkenstock sandals - if you've never had a pair you don't
what you're missing. You can wear them barefoot in summer or
toss on a pair of wooly socks and boot around in your
Birkenstock sandals all winter. Well at least that's what we
out here on the west coast.
For those of you "Back East" Birkenstocks and wooly socks may
be a bit much, but you can always choose to wear clogs instead
during the winter.
The sandals that Birkenstock makes are quite unique. They have
a very sturdy cork sole that is really light and naturally
water resistant so it holds up well in almost any conditions.
The nice thing about the cork is that it slowly forms to your
feet so that you get a completely custom fit that provides
the right support.
To be sure some people find that the arch in Birkenstocks does
not fit their feet exactly right (I have had this problem),
by trying on slightly different sizes and adjusting the straps
on the sandals you should be into a pair of comfy footwear in
no time at all.
There are cheaper knockoff versions of Birkenstock footwear,
but none of them can come close to matching the quality. The
foot-bed is second to none, and the sandal straps are made of
high quality softened leather so that the sandals are
comfortable from the first day you walk in them. I've had
of Birkenstock sandals last as long as 7 years, no other
cork-soled leather sandal I've ever owned has even come close.
