Bamboo Lining

Bamboo is a natural material that thrives ecologically and is 100% biodegradable. Ara’s bamboo linings are soft to your feet, breathable, provide up to 60% greater moisture absorption, dry up to 20% quicker than cotton, and have unique anti-bacterial properties.

High Soft

Ara’s High Soft construction delivers the comfort of a sneaker in flats and sandals. Super smooth soft-leathers, flexible soles and supple, padded innersoles create a super comfy walking experience.

Side Stitching

Side Stitching sees the uppers sewn directly to the sole (unlike Strobel or California stitching, which is to the insole). This creates a strong but flexible bond that moulds to the shape of your feet with wear. Minimal or no glue is required, making it a more environmentally friendly option that also increases air flow for a fresh and airy feel.

Ara Size Guide

How to find your size

Ara Size Guide

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).
