Timeless elegance: Pilatis’ interpretation of the BIRKENSTOCK classic couldn’t be more elegant: As one of three versions, this one is the most classic of all: the plain, black-coloured leather clears the stage for new, subtle design elements: the iconic buckle has been updated with an elasticated strap that promises not only more functionality, but also greater comfort.
Anatomically shaped cork-latex footbed
Custom made elastic strap
Footbed lining: Fullexquisite black footbed
Sole: EVA outsole (synthetic material) with iconic bone pattern
The natural leather that we use is mostly smooth leather, in some cases tumbled leather. This type of leather has many special characteristics, such as breathability, adaptation to the shape of the foot and durability.
Insole: 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.
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.
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.
