History of Birkenstock Bartlett

Birkenstock can trace its origins back to 1774 when Johann Adam Birkenstock was recorded to have worked as a shoemaker at a German church's archives. By 1896, his great-great-grandson, Konrad, had come up with the first contoured insole. Years later, the company began to produce the iconic Birkenstock sandals.

After the Second World War, the brand's sandals became popular among returning soldiers because of their orthopedic support. Between 1963 and 1964, the company turned out athletic sandals with soft footbeds, which were all the rage among gymnasts. Since then, the brand has created different styles to include in its footwear catalog.
