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 cushioning.
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.
EXTREME CASE OF FALSE ADVERTISING
On the 25th of June 2022 I see on social media i.e. Instagram that Birkenstock is having an "up to 50% OFF Online & In Store" . I then go to the online store to see what they have in stock. I find the London Oiled Leather going for R1450, (Its still showing at that price now on the 28th) so, I then decided to buy two pairs for myself and my brother. Since it says 'In store' i went to Canal Walk Mall to buy the two pairs, but now at the store, they are saying that the sale does not apply to them.
Then I go home to try to order them online. When I add them to my cart they are now added at their full price of R2999. So I then try to email and call customer service and they said that Only the narrow version was on sale, but that is not what I saw on the website - the website also had the regular version on sale.
I'm really not impressed by how I have been deceived by the company.
I want what I saw, as they are STILL R1450 right now on the 28th.
