Kairo Sandal: Focusing on Fit and Fashion

The Kairo is immediately recognizable as a BIRKENSTOCK shoe. Designed with comfort and custom fit in mind, the BIRKENSTOCK Kairo doesn’t forget the bit of style that makes it an attractive warm-weather choice.

Highlights of the Kairo sandal

Minimalist style merges with quality materials and thoughtful construction to create the BIRKENSTOCK Kairo. Every element below combines to make a fine whole.

  • Uppers- Strong, durable leathers are used to assemble the thong, ankle and back straps of select Kairo sandals. Others utilize Birkibuc, a manmade, low-maintenance, super soft nubuck alternative. The Kairo Flower is set apart by the leather accented with ornate floral appliqué.

  • Straps- Thong, ankle and back straps work together with the metal buckle for custom adjustment. Every wearer can slip in and make the necessary adjustments to create just the right fit.

  • Footbed- The contoured footbed utilizes a combination of expert construction—including a raised toe bar to promote a natural grip, deep cup in the rear to cradle the heel, durable and replaceable insole—plus quality fabrics—strong jute, cork, and soft suede lining—to create an extraordinary foundation that conforms to the shape of the foot to deliver supreme comfort.


The Kairo sandal embodies quintessential construction and design philosophies long-valued by the BIRKENSTOCK brand. The below models echo these values and present similar seasonal options.

  • The Gizeh sandal hits very similar aesthetic points with an open-back concept. Like the Kairo, the Gizeh thong sandal treats men and women to the classic BIRKENSTOCK look which prizes earthy minimalism alongside reliable comfort.

  • The Ramses sandal mimics the side straps and thong design of the Kairo and Gizeh. It provides men with extra wide side coverage for superior grip and fit.

  • The BIRKENSTOCK Yara has adjustable, wrap-around ankle straps that recall the back straps of the Kairo sandal. Both ensure a design detail that allows for a custom fit integral to lasting comfort.
