There is something quietly luxurious about textiles: the stability of a strong woven structure, the natural texture of warps and wefts, the softened matte look, and the versatility of the material. At BIRKENSTOCK, we’ve incorporated textile materials into our language of timeless comfort. With the ability to be fitted in any shape and take up any color, the material is an ideal choice for our classic footwear styles for men and women.
Material Focus: Textile
BIRKENSTOCK textile material is extremely soft, durable, and skin-friendly. The woven texture forms an interesting natural pattern that accentuates the minimal, timeless aesthetic of our footwear styles. The vegan material is totally devoid of animal products, verified by independent testing laboratories.
Every BIRKENSTOCK sandal inadvertently features the iconic footbed. The footbed is our USP and is responsible for the ultimate comfort you experience while walking in a BIRKENSTOCK sandal. The contoured design enables a natural stance and gait, aids the rolling motion of walking, and promotes good foot health.
Textile material, when combined with the comfort of our iconic footbed, forms a sandal that is versatile, functional, and attractive all at once. Take a look at our top five picks for you here:
