The casual BIRKENSTOCK Kyoto takes its inspiration from the classic Zürich model and stands out with its compact design and individually adjustable buckle. This offers optimum grip and is complemented by two decorative rivets. The color-coordinated outsole rounds off the shoe’s look of sophistication. The upper is made from especially soft suede in combination with high-quality nubuck leather.
For this shoe, a combination of materials was used. You can find more information on our main materials in our Material Guide.
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.
