Gross profit margin: 62.1%, an increase of 180 basis points

“The past year has been the most successful year in our 250 year long tradition, and our first year as a publicly listed Company. As a footbed company with a unique business model and a proven engineered distribution model, we offer a product with a purpose that will never go out of fashion,” said Oliver Reichert, Group CEO.

The very first Birkenstock Studio: WALK WITH ME initiative recently opened in London’s Shoreditch district. It will run for a year and take place in the Dray Walk Gallery. It is a program of events and workshops in which the creative community comes into contact with the products and works together. The program is free of charge and was celebrated with a welcome event with the brand ambassadors and music. The BIRKENSTOCK STUDIO: WALK WITH ME initiative is the first community studio in London’s creative quarter, the Truman Brewery, the revolutionary arts and media district in East London. For over twenty years, Truman Brewery has been home to spectacular office, retail, leisure and event spaces – and is now a unique environment in London. BIRKENSTOCK STUDIO works with some of the city’s most respected creatives. It is a meeting place for people who want to learn about, discuss and experience the brand, its iconic design and unique craftsmanship. The invitation is to walk step by step with the artists and discover the possibilities of the creative community.

STUDIO: WALK WITH ME: Thursday through Sunday, open from 12pm to 7pm.
Dray Walk Gallery, 91 Brick Ln, London E1 6QL
