High quality materials and unique construction give durable comfort and long lasting good looks. The concept of Birkenstock is easily understood when one considers the design of our feet and the mechanics of walking. Each contour in a Birkenstock footbed is precisely placed to stretch, flex and move naturally. Your feet benefit from free movement, constant exercise and improved circulation, resulting in long lasting comfort and better health.
Birkenstock use only high quality materials, whether they are leather or animal free. The leather used for Birkenstock® uppers is aproximately 3mm thick and very supple. We value the natural properties of our leather and don’t use artificial dyes. This way the leather remains open-pored with active breathing qualities. Although all leathers used by us are natural leathers, we distinguish the different optical appearances and handling using the following categories:
Our natural leather is identifiable by its typically textured graining and colouring. We do not correct these natural markings so the individual character of the naturally matt surface remains intact. However, these marks can be brushed off with a soft nubuck/suede brush or even by rubbing it with your thumb.
Our smooth leather has a fine texture with a slightly shiny surface, which varies in its colour. This leather finish has a high degree of elasticity and tensile strength, as well as a resistance to abrasion.
The Suede Leather is also extremely strong and supple and is, as with all other leathers used by Birkenstock®, dyed rather than sprayed, allowing maximum breathability. The natural differences in the surface texture are unavoidable and prove that only genuine leather is used.
Nubuck leather used by Birkenstock® originates from the best European hides. Nubuck leather is a full grain leather whose natural characteristics are enhanced by buffing the top layer. This creates the velvety finish unique to nubuck leather.
The bark-like surface pattern gives this Birkenstock® leather a particularly expressive character.
This material was developed by Birkenstock® as an alternative to leather. Birko Flor® is made of soft acrylic and polyamide felt fibres with a durable smooth leather-like finish.
