As the inventor of the footbed, BIRKENSTOCK is popularly known for its exceptional comfort and high functionality based on a history that can be traced as far back as 1774.
This expansion comes as a testimony to surging demand of our loyal and new customers across South Africa. The new BIRKENSTOCK stores are aesthetically created, keeping in mind the rich history and legacy of the brand and at prime consumer locations to ensure maximum visibility.
The retail space carries footwear in an abundance of materials, colours and styles, suitably tailored for women and men, while a dedicated BIRKENSTOCK Kid’s area ensures this store will be a premium destination for families.

In addition to the iconic sandal styles for which BIRKENSTOCK is famous, the Sandton store will also stock shoes, socks and belts.
The Sandton store follows the launch of the BIRKENSTOCK’S concept store at Cavendish Square, Cape Town, in February 2021.
