Made in Germany
Upper: Oiled leather
Oiled leather can be recognized by its untreated surface. BIRKENSTOCK purposely does not treat surface grains and other characteristic features. BIRKENSTOCK uses sturdy leather with a thickness of 2.8 to 3.2 millimeters as upper material.
Insole: Real Leather
The flexible leather lining, which is gentle on the skin, nestles up softly against your foot and adjusts to its contour. The open-pored and thus very breathable surface makes for a comfortable foot climate, even during more strenuous physical activity.
Footbed material: Cork
Cork is a sustainable material extracted from the bark layer of the cork oak. This natural product is insulating and offers very good cushioning.
EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) is a high-quality, very light, elastic material with extremely good cushioning. As a result, it smooths out slight irregularities in the floor and ensures that every step is softly cushioned.
The Original Birkenstock Footbed
Deep Heel Cup
The deep heel cup cradles the heel and keeps your natural cushioning right under the heel bone.
Longitudinal Arch Support
The longitudinal arch support runs along the sides of the footbed, providing stability with each step.
Transverse Arch Support
The transverse arch support runs through the middle of the footbed, helping ensure proper alignment and a solid stance.
Raised Toe Bar
The raised toe bar encourages the natural gripping motion of your feet, exercises the legs, and stimulates circulation.
More Toe Room
A roomy toe box allows toes to move more naturally, promoting better balance and correct foot alignment.
