Natural Leather

Leather is one of the most robust natural materials used in traditional shoe manufacturing. Birkenstock natural leather is selected for its particularly high quality and thickness. Apply a good quality cream polish to remove scuff marks and a beeswax dressing to keep the leather conditioned, moisturised and supple.

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!

Soft Footbed

The Birkenstock Soft Footbed brings an extra layer of cushioned comfort to the Classic Footbed. Like the Classic, natural latex is used to bind the cork and create the contoured foundation (2), two layers of jute provide flexibility and durability (1,3), and suede lining offers breathability and comfort (4). However, the Soft Footbed ups the ante with an extra layer of super soft foam cushioning, making it a bit cosier and cushier than its Classic counterpart.
