It boasts an especially feminine, svelte look while nevertheless offering exceptional stability thanks to lacing across the instep. This version was reinterpreted in an extravagant metallic look. The reflective film makes this classic model dazzle and is sure to make any outfit turn heads. The upper is made from high-quality, soft natural leather.

MATERIALS

UPPER: NATURAL LEATHER
Natural 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.

INSOLE: REAL LEATHER
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.

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.

Rye Gold-a slightly smaller fit

I have the same shoe in black and silver and they fit great. The gold doesn't fit the same - it is slightly smaller...
