A brand that needs no introduction but we’re going to do one away because it’s so cool. Birkenstock can trace its roots back to 1774, meaning they’ve been in business for almost a quarter of a millennium, so they know a thing or two about footwear. A sixth-generation family-run business, they are globally renowned for their sandals like the Arizona and the Boston Clog. Additionally, they literally invented the footbed. That kind of pedigree pays off as in recent years they’ve collaborated with luxury houses like Dior and Proenza Schouler.
