Birkenstock Insoles

Hilton's ShoesComment

Birkenstock insoles are finally here! These half arch supports fit in most shoes and offer amazing arch and metatarsal support. Continue reading for a description on the two different insoles.

Das Blaue Fussbett won't leave your feet feeling blue. Appearing here in size 44.

The Blue Footbed (above) retails for $59.95 and is available in whole European sizes and medium and wide widths. This insert is excellent if you are looking for pure metatarsal support. The medial (inner) arch is long and fills the whole arch space while the metatarsal bump sits just behind the ball of the foot, keeping the toes from splaying out. These have a deep heel cup with a shape that very much mimics the classic Birk shape. They'll fit easily in any shoe with a full back and deep side. I've put them in anything from my old Vans bike shoes to the Neil M. oxfords in the picture. 

The Birko-Natural is a corking alternative to other inserts! Seen here in size 44.

The Birko-Natural (above) retails for $59.95 and is avaiable in whole European sizes from 37 to 44 in medium widths. It is going to more closely imitate the feel of a Birkenstock soft-footbed (the one with a memory foam layer between the leather, jute and cork). The heel cup and the arch shape is slightly shallower than the Blue insole, however, the cork and foam on the Birko-Natural insole gives you quite a bit more cushion. Being made from cork and jute it will take the shape of your unique arches, just like the original Birkenstock sandal.

Spring Things

Hilton's Shoes1 Comment

It's that time of year here in Bellingham. We must strike when the iron is hot. Or at least while the iron is warm. More like, if the iron happens to be 70 degrees and sunny with just a puffy cloud or two lazily drifting around then it's time to try on some super cute shoes. Since we're approaching the end of May, it would seem that the iron is ready to be picked up.

Basically, summer shoes are in stock.

Rieker has given us some adorable, lightweight heeled leather shoes. This small German company uses a neutral color palette with washed out blues and brightly popping reds. Some of their offerings have light, airy laser cut uppers and others have pleating and an extra scalloped trim piece around the top of the foot.

This season's offerings from El Naturalista are perfect for skinny jeans or knee length shorts down in Boulevard Park. Extra soft leathers, peep toes, ankle buckles, tonal colors and slingback combinations all fit the bill for adorable days spent around town, on campus or out for a warm, outdoor summer evening dinner.

Sure, open shoes get all the glory during the warmer months but what if you're looking for something with a bit more support? Lace-ups should never be forgotten, especially if they come in awesome colors. Imac, a small Italian company new to the USA, and Ecco give you an awesome barefooted alternative to lightweight leather things. Both the Ecco and the Imac give the wearer the undeniable comfort of a removable leather footbed with a mesh lining for excellent breathability.

Pop in or give us a call if you have any questions about any of these excellent summer options!

Springtime in Bellingham

Hilton's ShoesComment

Here at Hilton's we're welcoming the spring with open arms.

Most of our spring shoes are in and a lot of fun colors are sprinkled around our walls. Alegria, Keen, Cobb Hill, Taos, Rieker and Dansko are all out in fine fashion with strong reds, bright blues and earthy green hues.

El Naturalista, a line we're just bringing back into stock has some of my personal favorite offerings out for the spring and summer - their footbeds remind me of ice cream. Imacs from Italy are also bringing out some great lace ups with washed out tones that will look great with capris.

Come on in and check out what's new! And feel free to bring us an iced toddy from the Black Drop.
