Yara: light and airy but not loose!
The Yara hugs your foot and has a design that is reminiscent of a Roman sandal. One filigree strap wraps snugly around the ankle in a crossed-over shape, while the front strap crosses over at the big toe. These heelless shoes can be perfectly adjusted to suit your foot using the two buckles.
What versions of the Yara are available?
The thong sandal is available in black and white with a patent finish. The shiny outer surface gives these cork sandals a modern touch. On the light version, the dark buckles and sole provide an exciting contrast. The patent finish model is available in sizes 35 to 43. This means that both girls of primary-school age and women with larger feet can wear this -re-interpreted classic sandal that has been on trend since ancient times.
The version of the Yara made of oiled nubuck leather in black with a braided ankle strap and dark footbed lining has a slightly more robust look. This version is available up to size 42.
What material is the Yara made of?
The straps of this BIRKENSTOCK model are made of Birko-Flor®. Birko-Flor® is an easy-care, skin-friendly synthetic material fitted with a soft layer of fleece on the underside for a comfy feel against the skin.
The cork-latex footbed lined with soft suede has excellent cushioning properties and helps to train the muscles of your feet and legs. The combination of the comfortable footbed and the flexible EVA sole provides even more comfort when walking. This fashionable shoe takes the load off your feet during long walks or when on your feet for long periods.
How should I style the Yara?
The striking and feminine design of the sandal should be the cornerstone of the look. This means that you can and should combine it with simple pieces and let the shoe take centre stage. For those that want a bolder look: Geometric prints in a tribal style of floral patterns bring the style to life.
In terms of colour, the Yara should generally be paired with a black and white theme. Ideally, the colour of the sandal, either black or white, will appear again in the rest of the outfit. This can be as a solid-coloured piece or part of a pattern.
