Shop Birkenstock Madrid Sandals & Slides
Classic elegance meets ultimate comfort!
Freshen up your summer wardrobe with a pair of the most iconic BIRKENSTOCK sandals. The classic single-strap model was the first style created, and continues to be a fashion favourite. The BIRKENSTOCK Madrid combines every aspect of the perfect sandal in one stunning package: Simple design, high-quality materials and outstanding comfort and support.
The principles of the centuries-old tradition of hand craftsmanship have been passed down from generation to generation for over 240 years, only the best materials enter the production facilities in Germany. All materials used are tested for harmful substances and undergo the most stringent quality and safety controls before they come into contact with your skin.
The footbed: The signature anatomically shaped footbed that is also integral to every BIRKENSTOCK Madrid model consists of three high-quality natural materials: cork, latex and jute. The cork comes from the outer bark of cork oaks that grow in Portugal and Spain. After harvesting, the cork regrows after 7-10 years. Mixed with natural latex from the resin of rubber trees, the cork footbed becomes even more flexible and shock absorbent. With its moisture-wicking fibres, the renewable material jute provides a sturdy structure above and below the footbed core.
The straps: The minimalistic strap that can be regarded as BIRKENSTOCK Madrid’s most iconic design feature comes in a variety of different materials. Depending on your personal style and preference, you can opt for premium oiled leather or smooth leather as well as innovative and breathable leather alternatives like Birko-Flor® Nubuck or elegant Birko-Flor® Patent. The inner lining of each strap is soft against your skin and adjusts to the shape of your foot.
The buckles: All BIRKENSTOCK Madrid models come with sturdy metal pin buckles that perfectly fit the simple design. All buckles are either monochromatic or colour-coordinated and show off the signature BIRKENSTOCK logo. Some models like Madrid Big Buckle use a larger version of the pin buckle as a delightful eye-catcher on an understated leather strap. If you’re looking for a one-strap sandal that exudes simplicity and elegance at the same time, look no futher.
Birkenstock Madrid Size Guide
How to find your size
Stand on a level floor with your heel up against the wall or straight edge.
Place a ruler or measuring tape on the floor under your foot or alongside it, with your heel at 0cm.
Measure the length of your foot from your heel to the end of your longest toe (yes, even if it's your second toe).
Measure both feet and go with the length of your longest foot if they are different. If you are in between sizes, we recommend going for the larger size.
Check out the size charts below to find your size. All sizes listed are either in US or EU, depending on the brand.
Which width do I need?
Most Birkenstock styles are available in 'regular' or 'narrow' width.
Narrow width is suitable for narrow to slender feet.
Regular width is suitable for normal to wide feet.
If you already own a pair of Birkenstocks or are trying them on in store - check out the little foot symbol on the footbed. If the foot is coloured in, it's a narrow (N). If it's just an outline of a foot, it's a regular (R).
