Tips & Tricks for Wearing Birkenstock Men Footwear

During the course of a lifetime, no other part of the body is subject to so much strain as our feet. They maintain the balance of the body while absorbing impact and bear the entire weight of the body. Birkenstock sandals for men have been designed precisely to provide optimal support.

Despite this, men are unable to take advantage of Birkenstock men footwear because they tend to get designs that do not fit them properly. Thankfully, there are amazing tips and tricks for buying and wearing Birkenstock footwear for men you should know in order to make the most out of these well-crafted products.

Tips for Getting A Proper Fit

  • As a general rule, Birkenstock shoes and sandals for men must possess the proper length and width that fits your foot properly. For this reason alone, the Birkenstock footbed is produced in two widths: normal (for normal or sturdy feet) or narrow width (slim feet).
  • Your feet should sit embedded in the footbed because you must not be standing on either the inner or outer side of the footbed rim.
  • You should have several millimeters of space in the heel and toe areas to allow your feet to move freely and naturally with each step you take.

The Materials in Birkenstock Men Shoes and Sandals

Before buying Birkenstock men footwear, it is useful to understand the material that is used to construct its shoes and sandals. Basically, the leather, suede, and nubuck are all animal hide-based materials while Birko-Flor and Birkibuc are synthetic materials. Since the Birko-Flor is mostly smooth and shiny, it represents all the fun and more fashionable (white and black patent, etc.) material in certain Birkenstock men footwear designs.

As Birkibuc is made to look like nubuck, it is the perfect choice for those who prefer a vegan alternative with a leather look. Many users agree that both the Birko-Flor and Birkibuc materials are almost as comfy as the leather. Since they do not stretch, you can expect that the break-in period could be a bit longer.

How to Care for Your Birkenstock Men Shoes and Sandals

  • Clean & protect uppers
  • Place under extreme heat
  • Test colorfastness
  • Apply sealant

Clean & Protect Uppers

Before wearing and after each cleaning, you should apply a water and stain protector to leather, suede, and nubuck uppers. In addition, you can keep the suede uppers fresh with the use of a suede brush. When the upper becomes soiled, use mild soap suds or clean with a commercial suede cleaner. As for nubuck, it is highly recommended for you to use a nubuck block.

When it comes to leather shoes and sandals, you should clean and condition leather with high-quality neutral leather creams. In order to cover scuff marks, you can use matching leather polish. Then, you can wipe the Birko uppers with a damp cloth. The inside of the footbed may also be washed with mild soap suds and a soft brush. Most importantly, you should dry slowly by putting it away from the heat to prevent cracking. You will find out more about the perils of extreme heat and their effects on your shoes/sandals later.

Avoid Extreme Heat

The Birkenstock sole has been carefully selected for its superior qualities. It is lightweight, flexible, durable, and shock absorbent. However, both the cork and soles can be damaged by exposure to excessive heat. You must keep your sandals away from radiators and fireplaces. Besides, you should never leave them in a closed car on a very hot day, or on the beach exposed to direct sun. When your sandals become wet, you must take them away from the heat and dry them slowly. If your soles are damaged or worn out, they can be replaced. All you need to do is to contact and ask your nearest Birkenstock retail store for assistance.

Test Color Fastness

While Birkenstock Men uses the highest quality leathers and tests them for colorfastness, any dyed leather may shed some color. When it comes to delicate or light-colored socks, you should be very careful especially when your footwear is brand-new.

Apply Sealant

Your new Birkenstock men sandals already have a light coating of sealant to prevent the exposed cork from drying out. If the cork no longer looks shiny, you should apply another thin coat of flexible sealing material. When you do this periodically, this application will prolong the life of your Birkenstocks.

Can I get Birkenstocks wet?

While it is best to avoid prolonged exposure to rain and other moisture, Birkenstocks can get wet on occasion and still last for years with proper care. Many think that their Birkenstocks will get ruined if they get wet once or twice in the rain, and this is generally not the case. If you do get caught in the rain in your Birks, fear not! Simply dry them in a shaded place away from any heat sources.

If you have clogs or shoes, insert wadded newspapers into the shoes, and it will help soak up the extra moisture. Do not dry your Birks near a stove, fireplace, radiator, or any other heat source. This can cause shrinkage in the soles. After your Birks have dried, apply Birkenstock Stain and Water Repellent, available as part of the Deluxe Shoe Care Kit.

Are Birkenstocks really good for your feet?

In short, yes. Unlike most sandal designs, the Birkenstock footbed is contoured to match the shape of a healthy foot. While it might initially feel ‘different,’ Birkenstocks are designed to support the natural shape of the foot.
