Spring is right around the proverbial corner: the bend in the river, the arête on the cliff, the switchback on the trail. Outdoor adventure soon turns from sliding on snow to playing on water, rock, and dirt. So, go ahead and daydream. Get out and get active, but don’t let your desires overlook the need to gear up smartly and to take care of your body.

That attention starts with the base of all activity: your feet. Having healthy, strong feet has been proven to increase performance in both dynamic and balancing sports. Now one of the world’s most iconic recovery shoe companies, Birkenstock, can help. The brand has expanded a full category of adventure-ready sandals that bring its storied footbed to the outdoors—one that now includes the new Mogami Terra.

Use Footwear that Helps Your Feet

The simplest way to care for your feet? Wear shoes built for the task of keeping you active: providing support where it’s needed, promoting circulation, and allowing recovery. While every shoe component plays into that mix of foot-care essentials, the most critical is the footbed, i.e., the part you stand on.

For over 50 years, Birkenstock sandals and their contoured footbeds have provided customized comfort and support. Each wearer’s overall weight, body heat, and walking mechanics imprint these unique footbeds for a truly personalized fit—one that’s featured  in a growing lineup of Birkenstock styles built with more outdoor, all-terrain features than you’re used to from your comfy Birks.

The new Mogami Terra presents that same contoured, ergonomic footbed that Birkenstock is famous for, with one key distinction: It’s now available in a versatile polyurethane that effectively sheds water and maintains comfort across outdoor activities. Like all Birkenstocks, the footbed’s wide toe box allows natural toe splay, a raised “toe bar” encourages circulation plus healthy foot activation, and four raised arch supports relieve pressure of the ball of the foot and heel. A deep cup also cradles the heel and maximizes the foot’s natural cushioning.

Whether it’s cork, polyurethane, or EVA, the support of the footbed remains equally beneficial across the Birkenstock range, setting the full-body foundation for exploring trails, rivers, and rugged terrain. On the Mogami Terra, the footbed secures to the foot via three adjustable, rubberized synthetic straps (two that buckle over the top of the foot and one with a hook-and-loop closure around the heel). Beyond these features and their interaction with the footbed, the outsole’s rugged tread pattern provides sure-footing on wet and dry surfaces alike. In short, the Mogami Terra is as ready for adventure as you are.
