This activity beginning of this brand dates to 1774 and to the shoemaker Johann Adam Birkenstock. In 1886, master Konrad Birkenstock, head of two stores in Frankfurt, Germany, began manufacturing and selling flexible insoles, and later lecturing on orthopedic footwear. In 1932, the training courses appeared and involved more than 5000 professionals. In 1942, the book "Podiatry - The Carl Birkenstock System" was launched, that by addressing natural gait and healthy footwear, was a best-selling in the field of podiatry.

The company became, in 2013, a corporation with three business units, namely production, distribution and services.
