10 Best-Selling Birkenstock Sandals in Manila
Obsessed with Birks?
(SPOT.ph) Did you know that Birkenstock has a long history that dates as far back as the late 1700s? German craftsman Johann Adam Birkenstock began his family’s legacy of shoemaking, which was passed down from one generation to the next. In 1896, his great-great-grandson Konrad Birkenstock, with the skills he had inherited from decades of shoemaking, began developing Birkenstock’s now-trademark footbed. This was inspired by the imprint left by feet in the sand, meant to ensure maximum comfort on the foot for hours, thanks to the snug fit and support. The business grew in popularity as the years went by. The flexible sole’s technology was even used by soldiers after the Second World War because of the orthopedic support they provided. By 1964, another descendant of Johann, Karl Birkenstock, developed the sole into the Birkenstock sandal we know today.
Now, over 200 years since the Birkenstock family first entered into the shoemaking industry, the sandals remain popular. Each one still sports the same signature footbed, making the pairs instantly recognizable. If you’re obsessed with Birks, or if you’d like to buy your first pair but aren’t sure where to start, we’re here to help you out. In no particular order, here are the best-selling Birkenstock sandals in the Metro to help you narrow down your search!
These are the 10 best-selling Birkenstock sandals in Manila:
Arizona Birko-Flor Sandals in Black (P4,650)
This classic two-strap style is probably what comes to mind when you think of Birkenstock. The thick black straps against the signature brown sole make for a great staple to have in your closet for casual days, especially if you’d rather not bother with buckles and laces. Plus, the practical but chic design is a normcore must-have!
Gizeh EVA Sandals in White (P2,350)
These all-white sandals are perfect to show off your fresh pedicure—whether a cool mint hue or a pretty lavender shade, it will immediately stand out against the thick, stark-white straps and sole. Use them for your casual weekend strolls—the lightweight EVA material will be the break your toes need after a long week of work.
Mayari Birko-Flor Sandals in Black (P4,650)
This pair gives the classic thick Birkenstock straps a dainty makeover. The thinner straps make the pair more versatile, allowing you to wear them even with ultra-feminine ensembles like linen pieces or little black dresses. You can dress them down for grocery shopping or dress them up for Sunday brunch.
Arizona EVA Sandals in Black (P2,350)
These kicks trade the classic brown sole for an all-black-everything design that gives the Birkenstock sandal an edgier, more modern feel. While the brand’s OG pairs are made with a suede lining on the soles and a leather-like material on the uppers, these sandals are constructed top to bottom with EVA, a lightweight waterproof material that’s both comfy and ideal for a variety of weather conditions. They’re great for when you know you’ll be on your feet all day.
Arizona Birko-Flor Sandals in Dark Brown (P4,650)
The chocolate-brown straps on this classic two-strap sandal give the pair a more rustic, woodsy touch—think khaki pants, flowy tops, straw hats, and maybe some Bon Iver music playing in the background. Plus, we love the gold-toned buckles on the thick straps, which adds to the pair’s old-school feel.
Milano Birko-Flor Sandals in White (P5,050)
Love chunky white sneakers? These kicks are pretty much the sandal version—with the added bonus that you can show off your fresh pedi when you wear them. The chunky-strapped pair is similar to Birkenstock’s OG Arizona sandal, but with an extra strap that goes around the back of the heel for added stability. Just like chunky sneakers, they’ll look great with streetwear-inspired pieces like cropped jeans and denim jackets.
Gizeh EVA Sandals in Black (P2,350)
Birkenstock’s Gizeh sandals are probably the closest you can get to leaving the house in flipflops while still looking put-together. This all-black pair will look chic even if you just slip them on without a second thought—which you can totally do since they’ll go with basically anything. Wear them with grungy pieces like graphic tees or ripped jeans, or use them to add a touch of attitude to an ultra-feminine outfit.
Arizona Birko-Flor Sandals in Blue (P4,650)
The combination of navy and brown on these Birkenstock sandals gives them a distinctly old-school, worn-in feel. You might want to pair them with nautical pieces like striped tees and white pants. Add some red accents to your outfit, too, for a preppy color combo.
Arizona EVA Sandals in Khaki (P2,350)
We’re obsessed with the camo color on these Birks. Wear them with an army green jacket for a cool, coordinated look. Tip: Sticking to monochromatic color combos will help make your outfits look like you put a lot of effort into picking them out.
Mayari Birko-Flor Sandals in White (P4,650)
These white Mayari sandals feature a cool asymmetrical strap design. Pair them with your fave '90s-inspired pieces like baby tees, plaid skirts, and denim-on-denim ensembles. The modern take on the classic Birkenstock sandals will bring your vintage outfit straight into the present.
