It’s no exaggeration to say that Birkenstock, the family-owned German sandal brand, has withstood the test of time. Founded in 1774 (and thus older than the United States of America), the brand has been able to sustain a level of cool most contemporary labels spend their entire existence chasing. One of the keys to such a lengthy and fruitful life is a core collection of unchanging silhouettes that now have a cult following.

It’s why we dedicated an episode of our “Why it’s cool” podcast series to Birkenstock and it’s why you’ll see everyone from Dior and Valentino to Kith and ADER Error clamoring to collaborate with the German sandal brand. And while, admittedly, Birkenstock has been highly successful in repositioning itself in the industry thanks to these carefully selected collaborations, what really makes Birkenstock so cool are its timeless classics.

The brand is perhaps best known for its two-strap Arizona sandal, though its Boston model is just as iconic in the sandal world. With that in mind, we’ve put together a selection of the best Birkenstock sandals available to buy right now.

Birkenstock Boston

For those who'd rather have a closed-toe option, the Boston is the ideal choice. This clog-inspired sandal also features a cork sole, but a single buckle and one-piece upper make it as viable an at-home essential as a spring shoe.

Extras

While many swear by the Birkenstock flagships, exploring further afield can reap some fire rewards. The Birkenstock catalog extends far and wide, and whether you're looking to expand your ready-made Birkenstock collection or on the hunt for something to stand out, opting for a lesser-known silhouette could be the right way to go.
