Blue Footbed TraditionalBIRKENSTOCK
Is it really possible to add Birkenstock comfort and support to your everyday pair of shoes? Yes, it is!
The Birkenstock Blue Traditional footbed was first designed based on a cast of a healthy foot in the sand giving you an anatomically sound insole that is optimized for comfort and support. The insole enables your bodyweight to be evenly distributed over the whole foot, supporting the foot while encouraging proper alignment and optimal gait.
The Orthotic arch design and heel cup balance foot impact areas for greater shock absorption and reduced foot fatigue. The deep heel cup also allows the fat pad of the heel to funnel beneath the heel bone, providing relief from heel pain and conditions such as plantar fasciitis. The metatarsal pad is perfectly placed to relieve forefoot pressure and pain including neuromas and metatarsalgia.
The ¾ length of the arch support allows it to be worn with most casual and athletic shoes. Flexes enough to allow shock absorption for the high arched foot. Firm enough to support a flexible foot and provide excellent support for those who overpronate.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Does this insole provide padding for those who have lost their fat pad under the metatarsals. If not, which insole do you recommend
This insole has a really good metatarsal pad but it does not offer any cushioning. If you are looking for padding or cushioning underneatht the metatarsals we recommend the 10 Seconds Pressure Relief with Met Pad.
My soles wear out on the right heel of the right shoe and the left heel of the left shoe. Will these insoles correct that too?
That is normal wear for shoes. These insoles will support your arches and may help to straighten your gait a bit. However, you will still see some wear on your shoes after awhile.
How long before I need to replace
We generally recommending replacing your insoles when you replace your shoes. The Birkenstock Blue Footbed Traditional insole usually lasts between 1-2 years depending on how often you wear it.
