Birkenstock are the undisputed kings of the cork footbed. After all, they've been at it since 1774. The Birkenstock Semi-Exquisite footbed brings you all the features of the classic, wrapped in a premium leather lining to elevate your look into 'formal Birk' territory.
The Birkenstock Arizona Big Buckle in Cognac with Semi-Exquisite Footbed
The Birkenstock Semi-Exquisite footbed delivers all the features you love in the Classic Footbed, with a premium leather footbed lining that has been colour matched to the leather upper. This leather lining replaces the usual suede or microfibre for a sleek, sosphisticated finish.
The Birkenstock Semi-Exquisite Footbed Toe Bar
The raised toe bar on the Birkenstock Footbed supports the natural rolling motion of your foot. This, coupled with the roomy anatomically shaped toe box, allows your toes can spread out in their natural position so that your muscles, ligaments and bone structures are aligned, balanced and unencumbered from the toes up.
The Birkenstock Semi-Exquisite Footbed Raised Edge
Birkenstock footbeds have a raised edge that protects the toes and feet as you move. The front of the footbed is also drawn up slightly to support the natural rolling motion of your foot - a feature that will continue to develop as they adapt to your feet and gait.
The Birkenstock Semi-Exquisite Footbed Longitudinal Arch Support
The interior and exterior longitudinal arch supports run along the sides of the Birkenstock footbed to surround and support the tarsal bones, giving stability with every step.
The Birkenstock Semi-Exquisite Footbed Transverse Arch / Metartarsal Support
The transverse arch support runs through the middle of the Birkenstock footbed to stabalise the metatarsal bone and help the foot take on a naturally straight and solid position that is balanced, strong and supported.
The Birkenstock Footbed Heel Cup and Heel Mould
The deep heel cup in the Birkenstock Footbed supports the foot tissue and holds the heel bone firmly in its natural position, so your foot and general alignment is stable and supported.
Likewise, the heel mould, cradles your heel to help activate the calf muscles, stabilise the back of the foot and improve gait, balance and coordination.
The Birkenstock Semi-Exquisite Footbed
The result - the iconic support and comfort of the Classic Birkenstock Footbed with a premium Semi-Exquisite leather lining. And in case you are wondering - there is a Birkenstock Exquisite Footbed (sans the 'semi'), which involves the leather lining wrapping around the entire edge of the footbed, completely enveloping the cork.
