If you didn’t know, Birkenstocks are back. In fact, they have become so trendy designers like Dior and Saint Laurent have collabs making the traditionally orthopedic shoes downright runway-worthy. While you may not be able to find deals on the designer versions, we have some tips on how to snag a great Birkenstock deal. 

Birkenstocks are rarely discounted. They want their brand message to stay intact–hand-made, sustainable, and full of long-lasting value. Finding deals is possible, but can take some work. As a bunch of deal gurus ourselves, we’ve organized a few key tips to finding Birkenstocks on sale. 

The Best Places to Find Birkenstocks on Sale

Rue La La and Gilt

Sister sites Rue La La and Gilt often have Birkenstocks on sale. Better yet, when you shop through our sales and sign in as a new user, you’ll bag 10% off AND free shipping. Definitely worth checking out!


Zappos is a shoe go-to for good reason. You can find the newest styles, but check out their sale section for discounts on Birkenstocks for the whole family. Zappos is now owned by Amazon, so if you have Prime you can get free upgraded shipping. Because of their liberal return policy, we like Zappos as an option for anyone who has never tried on Birkenstocks in person. 


Also try 6pm, Zappos’ discount site, for surprisingly low prices on Birkenstock boots, heels, mules, and sandals. 6pm doesn’t normally offer codes, but they are usually able to knock prices down lower than the majority of shoe stores out there. Right now, for instance, you’ll find styles up to 50% off.  


While Birkenstocks are excluded from most coupons and sales at DSW, we have been able to snag select styles on sale. Especially when you check their sale/clearance section for out-of-season styles. VIPs earn rewards and free shipping on all orders, so if you’re a VIP, DSW may be your best bet. 

More Good Choices When You’ve Got a Coupon

For sites like Famous Footwear, you can almost always find a 15% off coupon that is applicable to Birkenstock. They have a wide, wide selection of Birkenstocks available, but the 15% off Famous Footwear coupon comes about once every two months. It’s still worth it if you find a particular style you love at Famous Footwear but want to wait for a better price.



Prime Day may be behind us, but we are still seeing select styles for up to 40% off. Amazon is a great place to check out Birks on sale, as long as you are choosing styles from authorized sellers. 

Amazon, like eBay, is also a great bet for consistently low prices on certain sizes. Who knows–maybe your size foot is the lucky one. Prime Members also get free shipping, so this is often preferable to sites with high shipping fees.

Keep Your Eyes Peeled During the OffSeason

It’s definitely worth noting that we’ve spotted Birkenstock sales during the winter and holiday shopping seasons. Last year, we found several other retailers that turned up with discounts in early Fall.

Set up a Deal Alert for Birkenstock Sales

Let us do the work for you. When you create a Deal Alert, you’ll get an email whenever we post a deal on Birkenstocks. Just type “Birkenstock” in our search bar (or click here), then click on the “Create Alert for Birkenstock” button near the top of the page. Then sit back and relax!

Bonus Tip: Check Your Size! 

Before you start shopping, you should know that Birkenstocks use European sizing, so it may be a bit confusing at first. Luckily, some retailers have US sizing next to the European whole sizes, so it’s easier. But do your research first. Also, KNOW YOUR SIZE. Birkenstocks come in full sizes, so knowing the exact size will save you a lot of hassle in replacing them. Here’s a quick chart of common sizes:

They also take time to break in, so if you’re dissatisfied with the initial feel, wait a bit. It’s worth it. Birkenstocks last for years so you will most definitely not regret the first few days.
