Birko-Flor

Birko-Flor is a durable and easy to clean synthetic material, made to sit comfortably against the skin and used exclusively by Birkenstock.

Sustainable Cork

The Birkenstock cork footbed is legendary, not only for its comfort and support, though also for its sustainability. The cork is responsibly sourced from the outer layer of the cork oak tree. Sections of the thick bark are carefully removed without harming the tree, allowing it to regenerate and be re-harvested every 7-9 years. A single cork oak tree can produce 100 - 200 kg of cork in its lifetime!

Footbed Features

The anatomical design of the Birkenstock footbed follows the natural contours of your feet to strengthen, support, activate, stabilise and align. Boasting features such as a raised footbed edge, toe grip bar, arch support (including transverse, metatarsal, interior and exterior longitudinal arch support), heel mould, deep heel cup, and plenty of toe room, it's no wonder the humble Birk is coveted the world over.
