The Making of A Birkenstock
Watch what goes into the cork footbed making process.
Place your foot on a ruler and measure from the heel to the tip of your longest toe. Birkenstock USA has a different size guide than ours. We've found this is a more accurate way to find the best fit.
We recognize that shopping for non-US sizes can be a bit overwhelming.
That’s why we do everything we can to empower you with the info you need to find
your perfect fit! Here’s what you need to know.
Birkenstock are made in Germany, so the number (such as 39) in your sandal is the German size.
You’ll also see the metric measurement (for example, 250). The smaller numbers (like L8 or M6) are Birkenstock’s conversion of Ladies’ and Men’s US sizes. HOWEVER, we find those US measurements to be different than what we see on our customers. The charts below will show you our best judgement of the conversion from German to US sizes.
Birkenstock sizes only come in whole sizing-typically ranging from 24-34 in kid’s sizes, and 35-50 in adult sizes.
Birkenstock sizes are unisex, but some styles are offered in only smaller sizes (36-42) and others in only larger sizes (41-46).
We recommend the following for Birkenstock sizes, but feel free to call us for advice.
