Oiled leather can be recognized by its untreated surface. BIRKENSTOCK purposely does not treat surface grains and other characteristic features. BIRKENSTOCK uses sturdy leather with a thickness of 2.8 to 3.2 millimeters as upper material. The upper is made from high-quality, untreated cowhide and natural leather. Thanks to the natural color gradient of the hides, no two shoes are the same. You are buying a unique item, with even the right and left shoes exhibiting differences in coloring.
The flexible leather lining, which is gentle on the skin, nestles up softly against your foot and adjusts to its contour. The open-pored and thus very breathable surface makes for a comfortable foot climate, even during more strenuous physical activity.
FOOTBED MATERIAL: CORK
Cork is a sustainable material extracted from the bark layer of the cork oak. This natural product is insulating and offers very good cushionin
EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) is a high-quality, very light, elastic material with extremely good cushioning. As a result, it smooths out slight irregularities in the floor and ensures that every step is softly cushioned.
First off I paid a bit extra for a treated leather sandal and yet nothing on the package confirmed wether it’s oil treated or normal
Secondly I signed up as a first time buyer I was promised to receive a 10% discount and yet to receive it despite my efforts to email customer service
You have sent me a narrow size and i ordered regular
The best shoes ever! Very nice to wear and to show off!
