If a particular style or size is no longer available on our website, this means it is no longer in stock. Some BIRKENSTOCK styles are only available for a limited period, whereas others are manufactured again for each collection. Unfortunately, our Customer Service team has no access to stock and production information, and is therefore unable to provide you with any details about whether a product will become available again.
Generally, there are two reasons for why specific styles can’t be found on our website anymore:
1. Styles that are hard to find may have been seasonal items. Our seasonal items
are usually only available in limited supply and for one season only.
2. The style you are looking for might be an old model, that isn’’t available anymore. You may find one of our new styles that are similar to the one you are looking for. Keep an eye on the website as new stocks and sizes become available all the time.
We try to keep a large variety of styles, colours and sizes in stock that suit the majority of our customers and unfortunately it is impossible to stock absolutely everything. Foreign markets may have specific styles or colours made. BIRKENSTOCK has staple styles that are usually available all year round and also seasonal specials which are released and available in limited quantities.
