Hardcore functionality embraces urban style, for Proenza Schouler’s take on our iconic Arizona. This unisex line effortlessly updates the Arizona with topstitching and patent leather straps to replace our signature buckle for on-the-move practicality and everyday style.
Balanced, unapologetic, and unmistakable, our polished, specchio calf leather imbues the sleek function of BIRKENSTOCK x Proenza Schouler with a purposeful luxury. Paired with our distinctive anatomically shaped footbed, whether dressed-up or dressed-down, the Arizona is youthful, downtown chic at its most effortless.

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.
