Birkenstock-Bend Shoe Co is proud to be a part of downtown Bend since 1985. We are a locally owned, independent shoe store carrying a wide variety of comfort brands and generally awesome footwear. Our Manager, Tori Oshel, came to Bend with her husband and son after several years as an Air Force spouse (allowing her to live in Northern Italy and Minot, South Dakota). Tori grew up in Southern Oregon and went to college at OSU. Since 1995 owners Teague and Tami Hatfield have lived in Bend, where they opened and owned FootZone for 21 years and acquired Birkenstock of Bend in 2016. They join the entire crew to serve this community and offer up the best shoes we can find!
Here at Bend Soap Company, we make amazing, wholesome, all-natural goat milk soap. It’s amazing because each bar is crafted to change lives. Our first bars of goat milk soap were created to relieve our son, Chance’s, eczema. He would scratch his legs until they bled and nothing we tried seemed to help! In fact, we discovered that the soap we were using would irritate his skin even more and lotion would make it burn. One look at the ingredients label told us why.
