The Blue Footbed utilizes the principle of walking barefoot. It is based on the impression left by a healthy foot in sand, creating a natural environment for your feet. The heel area is cushioned and stabilized thanks to the raised design. The Footbed consists of a silk liner with cork underneath to give the shock absortion capability.  This also supports the natural arch of the foot. The Blue Footbed is therefore ideal for anyone who would like to enjoy the unique comfort of BIRKENSTOCK in enclosed shoes made by other brands too.


  • Anatomical footbed shape
  • Excellent heel stabilization
  • Optimum damping
  • For traditional business and leisure shoes with a slight heel - (classic or heeled)
  • For modern business, leisure, and sports shoes without a heel - (sport or casual)

Birkenstock Blue Footbed

  • Observations

    The Blue Footbed by Birkenstock takes up little room in shoes allowing for a wider variety of footwear that you can enhance.  We have found that the Sport/Casual Blue Footbed tends to emphasize a higher metatarsal pad  and fits better in casual wear, such as tennis shoes, loafers,  or work boots.  The Classic/Heeled Blue Footbed tends to emphasize the arch with a lower metatarsal due to the angle of the footbed.  We find these are good  especially in heels and fashion boots.  Both footbeds can be interchanged - depending on where you prefer emphasis on the foot.
