    2.3K  Views

    Birkenstock definitely needs no introduction, especially in recent times, after this German brand of sandals made an entry in the country. The reason for its centuries-old success and popularity? Unmatched comfort. That is what the luxe footwear label sells and the reason why it's a hit among any generation -- old or young. While you can't put a price on their quality, these sandals, known for their signature footbeds and easy slip-on style, are pricey. So we thought, why not do a quick round up of Indian footwear brands that harbour similar aesthetics at more affordable price points. Thank us later, read or bookmark these Birkenstock look-alikes for style or comfort (whatever your preference), first. 

    Oh, and since it's summer season, you must definitely buy a pair or two of these summer-friendly sandals.

    Bucik

    Bucik maybe a men's footwear brand, but their sandals and floaters scream unisex to us. The textured cross strap sandals and one toe sandals are a fun take on the Birkenstock styles with the same comfort. 

    Our pick: The Monochrome Dual Strap Slingback Sandals

    Murtle

    Available on LBB

    Probably the most identical brand to Birkenstock, especially their Gizah style sandals. We'd happily call them the desi Birkenstocks because Murtle is as sustainable with comfy support insoles.

    Our pick: The Polka Dots Printed Green T-Strap Flats

    Kaka Sumi

    This Dimapur-based label is all high-fashion footwear, but it's the men's strappy sandal section that will land you with Birkenstock like gems (some with similar buckles). These again, are unisex in design and appeal. Some of them even have a gladiator-like vibe. 

    Our pick: The 'Adam' Leather Buckle Detail Sandals

    Shapecrunch

    Offering you all the support with their custom insoles with inbuilt footbeds, Shapecrunch's sandals are comfort level max. These can also be customised exactly according to the shape of the foot. Oh and the brand does a splendid iteration of Birkenstock's most popular style, the classic, two adjustable strap style - Arizona.

    Our pick: The Arch Support Sandals

    Dmodot

    Dmodot

    Available on LBB

    An influencer favourite brand, for, you guessed it, their Birkenstock-like aesthetic, Dmodot's sandals has our hearts too. Very similar to Birkenstock's Mayari multi-strap design, their neutral designs are any casual outfit's dream match. We also like classic colours of Dmodot's sandals.

    Our pick: The Black & Tan One Toe Back Strap Sandals

    Pro-Tip
