The Birkenstock family have been shoemakers for over 230 years with a tradition of quality products that are comfortable, unique, timeless and respectful of the world around us.

Master Cobbler is your best source for Birkenstock® shoes, sandals and insoles. I have the largest selection of Birkenstock® between Bellingham and Vancouver, Washington and if I don’t have what you want in stock, I can get it fast. I am also a Certified Birkenstock® repair facility and can refresh, renew or repair your Birks! Many of my customers have told me how wearing Birkenstock shoes has alleviated the foot pain, that can often be associated with Plantar Fasciitis. But just what makes a Birkenstock so kind to your feet?

Plantar Fasciitis and Heel Pain

All Birkenstock sandal and shoe products share the unique Birkenstock footbed made of resilient cork/latex and is shaped to create a healthy walking environment for your feet. The cork/latex blend is pliable and reacts to natural body warmth and, over time, yields to the characteristics of an individual foot. Many wearers find that the longer you wear them, the more comfortable they become.

The Birkenstock footbed is also the perfect cure for foot anomolies like plantar fasciitis.
Many of my Birkenstock customers tell me of foot pain they have suffered for years relieved with their Birkenstock footwear:

“I literally owe Terry my pain free feet. After going to a podiatrist, spending over $500 for inserts that didn’t work, Terry convinced me to try Birkenstocks. I purchased a pair from him and within a week, I had no more foot pain. Since I didn’t want to only wear Birk’s, I also bought some of their inserts from him. Thanks, Terry, for saving my feet!”
