Product Description

The original BIRKENSTOCK Sandal. A strap, a buckle, and a contoured cork footbed are masterfully combined to create the Madrid. An iconic slide with an amplified buckle accent. This footbed is lined with smooth leather.
  • Anatomically shaped cork-latex footbed; semi-exquisite
  • Upper: textile
  • Footbed lining: smooth leather
  • Sole: EVA
  • Details: strap with a big, individually adjustable metal pin buckle; color-coordinated footbed
  • “Made in Germany”


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.

Cork is a sustainable material extracted from the bark layer of the cork oak. This natural product is insulating and offers very good cushioning.

Outsole: EVA
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

Madrid Big Buckle Velvet

I love the velvet range, they make me feel dressed up and elegant. I bought the blue and will soon purchase the red but would quite honestly buy them in a range of colours if you had them.

Beautiful design, not as comfy as I had hoped

My first Birkinstocks, which had a pure cork sole, were extremely comfortable and moulded around my foot beautifully. I wore them for years.

I was so hoping that this model, with such an elegant design, would live up to that.Unfortunately, the sandal seems to be covered with plastic over the cork and it's not nearly as malleable and soft as the original design. I am wearing them in but have a callous on my right foot... it is disappointing. It seems to me that Birkinstock is comprising on materials with their new range of designs.It is still a very pretty shoe, quite glamorous for a sandal, pity about it being not so comfortable.
