Those working in the medical industry will likely be aware or have heard of the Birkenstock unisex Super-Birki and Profi-Birki Clogs. They are often easily spotted due to their bright coloured appearance and plastic clog design which is distinctive and like no other. What is the difference between the Super-Birki and Profi-Birki many ask? And why do so many medical professionals select these as their choice of work footwear? We will start at the beginning.
Birkenstock created the Profi and Super-Birki in order to achieve the ultimate work clog for a variety of working environments. Both are versatile clogs that offer plenty of grip and quality support. The Profi design has a raised heel section/deep heel cup that encloses the entire foot whereas the Super-Birki has a lower heel backing, which can be seen in the image below.
The Profi-Birki footbed made with a microfibre lining and anatomically shaped PU (polyurethane) footbed, is contoured in order to allow comfortable wear over long periods of time. The Super-Birki cork-latex anatomically shaped footbed is lined with a moisture-wicking fabric and also offers maximum comfort for long periods of wear. If the footbeds are not suited to your feet and you need custom orthotics, they are removable for you to place the appropriate option in.
If they feel uncomfortably roomy, you can place some Birkenstock Blue Zell Foam underneath the footbeds which elevates your feet and removes some of the roominess. This can be purchase in either a thin (3mm) or thick (5mm) foam. This retails at $7 and is often used by customers that feel they are too roomy however, keep in mind they will always be a roomy shoe as they are a clog design.
You can locate both the Super-Birki and Profi-Birki on our website here, medical footwear.
We want to say a big thank you to all those in the medical/healthcare industry and beyond.
