Sculpted from soft padded leather with tonal quilting, the Sylt is a stylish and proportional play on German craftsmanship. Available in three lively colors with a single adjustable fastening strap and a moulded footbed wrapped in premium nappa leather. Elegant and refined, this style will delight tastemakers alike.
Upper: Premium smooth nappa leather, padded and stitched, lined with microfiber
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.
