Ask Brad

Brad: So it’s summer, and you want to find a great pair of Birkenstocks to round off your look. Great idea. Here are some things you should know before shopping for a new pair and how to get great Birkenstock deals. 

One, know that Birkenstocks use European sizing, so it may be a bit confusing at first. Luckily, some retailers have US sizing next to the European whole sizes, so it’s easier, but do your research first. Also, KNOW YOUR SIZE. Birkenstocks come in full sizes, so knowing the exact size will save you a lot of hassle in replacing them. 

Birkenstocks are rarely discounted. They want their brand message to stay intact–hand-made, sustainable, and full of long-lasting value. Finding deals is possible, but can take some work. As a bunch of deal gurus ourselves, we’ve organized four key tips in finding Birkenstocks on sale. So without further ado, let’s do this.They also take time to break in, so if you’re dissatisfied with the initial feel, wait a bit. It’s worth it. Birkenstocks last for years so you will most definitely not regret the first few days.
