Birkenstock Style

Birkenstock style guide

Birkenstock have a tried and tested formula when it comes to designing and manufacturing new ranges, and that’s perhaps why their collections only ever vary slightly from this blueprint for success.

Having said that, why would you alter a universally-loved concept? Though many of the signature Birkenstock styles are fairly similar to each other, each one packs a huge punch in the style stakes whilst simultaneously being reliable and comfortable in that traditional Birkenstock manner.


One of the best-loved ranges in the collection is the Arizona. This simple two strap sandal is available in a number of staple neutral colours, including black, white, stone and mocha. Aimed ostensibly at the male market, it is not uncommon to see ladies rocking the Arizona either thanks to its unisex appeal.

The dual straps are both fully adjustable for a tighter or more relaxed fit as necessary, and the EVA sole is shock absorbent to enable the sandal to be worn on uneven terrain. The Arizona has become the standard-bearer for casual shoe wearers who like to let their feet breathe a little but remain comfortable at all times.


The Madrid, on the other hand, is a sandal aimed at the discerning woman. Available in black, white, black patent, cherry red, pink and silver, this one chunky-strap sandal delivers a low profile with serious panache, which enhances the comfort of the wearer whilst looking chic at all times.

The Madrid’s one strap is fully adjustable using the classic buckle detailing, and the cork/latex footbed is designed with the busy everyday woman in mind - keeping your feet comfortable and cushioned as you run efforts, all whilst looking fabulous of course!


The Gizeh is a thong-style sandal with the signature Birkenstock one strap, and a little extra for between your toes. Perfect for those who prefer more of a grip on their shoes as opposed to the slider-style sandals, the Gizeh are designed more specifically for females.

These easy-to-wear luxurious sandals come in a variety of gorgeous leathers - but we particularly love the black and white options. They’re so versatile, chic and of course, as with any Birkenstocks, comfortable.


The Rio is an innovative design for Birkenstock, featuring the indistinguishable chunky strap across the toes, but also an ankle strap too for added comfort and wearability. The extra protection of the ankle strap means you can rock your Rios for long walks or days full of errands to run - knowing your feet will always be happy with the signature Birks insole.

The Rio is a stylish sandal that can easily take you from day to night, and when it comes in gorgeous colours like the blue lagoon or a shiny silver - you can see that Birkenstock certainly had this in mind when designing them.
