All Berkemann footwear and insoles are realized for the well being of the feet.
The insoles produced by Berkemann are anatomically formed and support the natural shape of the foot. They absorb the impact of every step. Every insole has a supporting arch bridge: Berkodur. This supporting arch bridge increases the wear comfort of your shoes in a simple and natural way by supporting the foot musculature. The arch is modelled and anatomically formed after the natural shape of the foot, supporting the longitudinal and transverse arches. It has a shock absorber in the heel area that cushions the energy of every step. The Berkodur arch bridge is made of high-quality materials: vegetable-tanned leather which make it possible to be permeable and to absorbe the moistyre. The activated carbon layer make it possible for the shoes to be odourless an dry, the silver ions have an antibacterial effect.
