We get several e-mails a week asking what the difference is between Dr. Scholl's and Berkemann Sandals. Berkemann Sandals are lighter than Dr. Scholl Sandals due to the type of wood used. Poplar is a very lightweight renewable resource. But, the big difference is the unique replaceable/interchangeable straps....
The foot plays an important role as the base of the entire individual. This complicated, sensitive and thereby immensely efficient body part has fascinated and has been a part of Berkemann’s commitment since 1885. Our longstanding experience with feet renders no secret in this context untapped, which we, the employees of Berkemann, are possibly not informed about – which in turn is an advantage rather than merely collaborating all orthopedic knowledge into the development of shoes: Shoes that relate to the needs of the human foot in an ideal way. Shoes, which are not merely comfortable because they have been developed according to orthopedic principles, but also look good from the exterior.
Our shoes are manufactured with only high-quality materials: A variety of our models have removable foot beds, which allow the user to use individually customized, orthopedic insoles/footbeds. Thus, at Berkemann, every foot finds the right shoe. He, who wants to be comfortable at his feet, requires not just any shoe that is comfortable, but he requires shoes that can support the anatomy of the feet keeping the comfort factor in mind as well. Like the original Berkemann 5-Phase foot bed that is based on orthopedic principles – naturally found in all Berkemann models. The optimal base for the body: Berkemann shoes cater to the comfort of your feet and subsequently naturally results in the all-round feel good factor of individuals.
