Only the best materials are good enough for us. These materials are not used in our products until they meet our quality standards. This means that we only use the highest-quality natural materials, such as cork, latex and the finest jute for our footbeds. These materials ensure that our shoes are light and flexible for the highest level of comfort. This quality can also be seen in our choice of leathers.
Birkenstock use only high quality materials, whether they are leather or animal free. The leather used for Birkenstock® uppers is approximately 3mm thick and very supple. Each contour in a Birkenstock footbed is precisely placed to stretch, flex and move naturally. Together, your feet benefit from free movement, constant exercise and improved circulation, resulting in long lasting comfort and better health.
